Images of Terror, Narratives of (In)security: Literary, Artistic and Cultural Responses:23-24 April 2013

One of the greatest paradoxes of the 21st century is the fact that, even though western societies have reached an outstanding scientific and technological development, fear and insecurity continue to be very much alive in public discourse as well as in our private life. Concerns about terrorism, urban criminality, global epidemics, computer piracy and organized crime and, more recently, about the outcomes of the financial and economic crises circulate widely in the media and their highly politicized representations shape much of our everyday life.

Texts in Contexts: New Cultural Constellations in Translation Studies-April 14 to April 16, 2013

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 - 5:40am
Translation and Interpreting Institute (TII) Hamad bin Khalifa University, & Bloomsbury Qatar Foundation Publishing, Doha, Qatar

Many scholars argue that the translation of texts operates within an international cultural system in which certain languages, deemed "central," enjoy a cultural and economic monopoly. While the cultural centers formed around these languages tend to dictate the movement of texts to and from so-called "peripheral" languages, such monopolies do undergo transformations. Indeed, once-peripheral languages can find themselves at the center of the international cultural system as historical circumstances shift and change.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Unbecoming: An Anthology of Posthuman Poetry

In the twenty-first century poetry interfaces with animal-machine. The "human" is not a given concept, but rather is one that is made in an ongoing technological and anthropological process. We hope to publish an anthology of poetry that participates in technological, biological, representational, sexual, political and theoretical post-humanisms. We're looking for poetry that engages with or is written by animals, beasts, monsters, creatures, aliens, cyborgs, etc. How do bodies that are misunderstood, misfitting, ugly, failures, etc., challenge western, enlightenment figurations of the "self" and "human"? What are the poetics of rhetorical bodies that exceed definition?

Internacional Conference Montevideana VIII: New mappings of the avant-gardes. Views from (or towards) Latin America.

updated: 
Monday, November 19, 2012 - 3:19pm
Universidad de la República, Uruguay

From the 1920s to the early 1930s, Latin American literary and aesthetic avant-gardes developed new images of geopolitical identity that led, among other things, to a remapping of the region's cultural relations with Europe and the U.S. Althoug recent scholarship on the avant-gardes has produced an extensive critique of traditional, eurocentric views, most of the time it has failed to fully incorporate Latin America to its supposedly "global" view. Still today, transcultural and transhemispheric studies are relatively rare, and approaches on (not to mention from) the region are relatively few, even in projects that aim to be comprehensive.
