Global Financial Capital and New Realisms

updated: 
Thursday, November 19, 2009 - 2:39pm
ACLA Annual Meeting at New Orleans

The recent economic crisis coincides with flourishing of new realism across different media in Europe and North America [Frazen's The Corrections in literature (2001), Audaird's The Prophet (2008) in film, Simon and Burns' The Wire (2002-2008) in television]. This realism distinguishes itself by an extensive preoccupation with poverty, migration, crime and urban violence while it stylistically appropriates violence as a commentary on the disposability of bodies under neo-liberal economy. The time seems ripe to explore what kind of realism is being produced in our historical moment. This seminar explores the prospects and limits of realism as a narrative mode that reflects on the contemporary capitalism, its trajectory, moments of crisis and recovery.

"The Aural Archive"

ACLA annual convention, New Orleans, April 1-4, 2010

Proposals due: Nov. 23, 2009 [Deadline extended]

This seminar aims to draw out several theoretical and methodological questions lurking behind recent work in media studies, performance studies, musicology, and literary studies: If the aural realm is ephemeral (as is often said), how does it factor into the historical record? When you listen to your archive, what and how do you hear? And how do you theorize the silences and noises in the archival grain?

[UPDATE] Nov.13, 2010 The 18th Annual English and American Literature Association Conference: Everyday Life and Literature

Monday, November 16, 2009 - 7:56pm
English and American Literature Association of the Republic of China in Taiwan (EALA Taiwan) &Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures,National Chung Hsing University, Taichung, Taiwan

Literature is related to everyday life in a subtle way. Everyday life often manifests itself as the textual Other outside the major narrative thrust, and, therefore, receives scant critical attention in literary studies. In fact everyday life can be seen as an arena of two-way negotiation: it is where power reproduces itself in daily practice, but it is also where both personal and collective creativity intervenes in the reproduction of power. Moreover, everyday life often emerges, becomes visible, or acquires meaning through its engagement with other social categories—gender, race, class, ethnicity, nature, and so on, whose different relations with dominant regimes of power call for different strategies of everyday life practices.
