Lateral Aesthetics (Edited Collection)

updated: 
Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 11:50pm
Co-Editors Elizabeth Adan and Benjamin Bateman

In her essay "Slow Death: Sovereignty, Obesity, Lateral Agency," cultural theorist Lauren Berlant contrasts "lateral agency" with the sovereign agency of the neoliberal subject. Where sovereign agency builds, intends, and extends the self via a purposive and propulsive will, lateral agency floats, spreads, and spaces out, interrupting the breakneck pace of capitalist production and suspending the self's forward motion. For Berlant, lateral agency symptomizes the exhaustion and attrition of the individual's will, at the same time as it expresses a kind of pleasure in practices of self-abeyance.

Food: Imaged and Imagined SAMLA (November 8-10, 2013)

updated: 
Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 3:09pm
Marta Hess/South Atlantic Modern Language Association

The papers in this panel investigate the ways that writers, readers, cooks, and consumers image and imagine food in fiction, film, memoir, poetry, cookbooks, and blogs. Food can both connect and divide individuals, communities, and cultures. The papers in this panel will explore the interconnectedness of food, text, and image. Presentations in this session, for example, might examine the material ways that we represent food in photographs and film or the ways that food forms and contributes to the public images of individuals and cultures.
Please email abstracts by June 1, 2013 to mhess@gsu.edu

Foreign Language Film Conference VI

FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM CONFERENCE VI

"TRAVEL"

LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY
31 OCTOBER-3 NOVEMBER 2013

Submissions are invited for the sixth Foreign Language Film Conference, on the theme of Travel. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to consider questions of travel, movement, location, and travellers in cinematic traditions. How does cinema represent the history, processes, and problematics of moving from one place to another? How does global cinema reflect and articulate the experience of travelling through a world that is increasingly borderless? On the pedagogical side, how do these films prompt classroom discussions of globalization, cultural adaptation, practical necessities, and personal discovery?
