Lost and Found: Texts as Exploration and Discovery - Extended Deadline

updated: 
Tuesday, January 10, 2017 - 6:54pm
The Acacia Group, California State University, Fullerton
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 3, 2017

The Acacia Group invites submissions both academic and creative from all disciplines for this year’s conference “Lost and Found: Texts as Exploration and Discovery” at California State University, Fullerton on March 17th-18th, 2017.

This conference seeks to find the lost voices of marginalized groups, scholarship that is “just a student paper,” identity in an age of technology, and connections between seemingly disparate experiences. Ultimately, we are looking for work that explores what is lost and what is found through our interaction with texts (which includes literary texts as well as performative, cinematic, social media, and other forms of textuality). What is lost? What is found? What happens now that it is lost/found?

Chiasma: A Site for Thought
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Continental philosophy and science have a complex and tumultuous relationship. At turns oppositional and complementary, their discourse has been marked by mutual incomprehension and distrust, often leading to a general lack of interest. But with the recent appearance of the so-called New Materialisms – the materialist Deleuzianism of Manuel DeLanda, the Speculative Realism of Quentin Meillassoux, Ray Brassier, and Graham Harman, the “neuro-turn” of Catherine Malabou, Donna Haraway’s animal studies, the actor-network theory of Bruno Latour – there has been a renaissance of science studies in continental thought.

Order and Disorder: The (De)Construction of Narrative in Literature and Thought

Monday, February 6, 2017

 “Narrative identity takes part in the story’s movement, in the dialectic between order and disorder.”

                                    --Paul Ricoeur

Marking the indistinct boundary between “a mere sequence of moments” and “a story” is the complex but inescapable concept of narrative. Narratives appear to order and unify events, creating a sense of coherent meaning, yet the narratives by which we order our lives—narratives of gender, race, class, nation, etc.—are always internally troubled.
