"The Aural Archive"

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

Proposals due: Nov. 13, 2009

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?

Investigating Conflicts at Public Demonstrations: A Conference on the Powers of Protest, New Technology, and Crowd Control

The Protest Study Project at Queens College and the CUNY Graduate Center

An informal network of students, faculty, and activists tentatively working under the banner of "The Protest Study Project" have proposed a weekend conference in New York on March 20-21, 2010 (we are awaiting final approval to hold this event at the City University of New York Graduate Center). The goals of this conference are to provide a forum for academic and activist discussions about the urgent legal, practical, and theoretical issues that emerged from Pittsburgh, and to place these discussions in larger transnational and historical contexts. The conference urges presentations, panels, roundtable discussions, and workshops on any number of perspectives and reactions to multiple issues.

Afterlives of the Nineteenth Century (ACLA 2010)

updated: 
Saturday, October 24, 2009 - 2:38pm
Criscillia Benford, Marty Gould, Rebecca Mitchell


The buzz surrounding recent Austen adaptation Pride and Prejudice and Zombies captures the ambivalence — equal parts horror and delight — evoked by the perpetual resuscitation of the nineteenth century. Leaving others to fight Austen's zombies, this seminar sets its historical sights slightly later, taking the figure of the zombie as a point of departure. Does Victorian Britain, like the zombie, refuse to remain quietly dead and buried? Or do we keep digging it up?

Autopsia Online Journal

Autopsia is an online, international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal that provides a diverse forum for scholars and professionals to interrogate and challenge the intellectual and aesthetic dimensions of mass culture. Autopsia invites critical and/or theoretical examinations that further our understanding of the serial consumption and the circulation of ideas, images and objects that flow from numerous centers, margins and multiplicities of production from the Industrial Revolution to the present. The journal welcomes submissions for publication that perform autopsies on a broad range of media: film, literature, art, and philosophy with a particular emphasis on how these cultural productions function as commodities.

Land of Promise: Stories of the immigrant in multicultural Canada (February 3-4-5, 2010, proposals due December 15, 2009)

Centre for Canadian Studies, Department of Comparative Literature,Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India

In a multicultural and multilingual context, immigration has been an integral part of the national identity of Canada.
Modern Canada constitutes of a large percentage of Diasporic population who contribute extensively to the making of Modern Canada. In the wake of globalization, the evolution of Canada as a Multicultural State has been receiving much attention from mass media. This again has been a contested terrain since the settlement of a chosen race in a promised land has resulted into the subjugation of the Peoples who have been residing in the geo-political entity which came later to be known as Canada.
