American Literature Association 30th Annual Conference in Boston, MA

May 23-26, 2019 at the Westin Copley Place

Sponsor: Robert Frost Society (session 1)

 

“We were lost piecemeal to the animals, / Like people thrown out to delay the wolves,” Robert Frost wrote famously in his poem “The White-Tailed Hornet” of the modern trend to investigate animality in humans. Robert Frost Society invites new essays on Robert Frost’s life and work which would engage some of the critical frameworks being developed today in animal studies.

Radical Materialisms

Boston College English Graduate Conference

April 6th, 2019

New materialisms and object-oriented ontology offer a radical reorganization—perhaps a democratization—of human/object relations, deemphasizing human agency in favor of a “parliament of things.” This conference asks if such approaches have been too quick to abandon human politics altogether. Can new materialisms be both conceptually and politically radical?

Lacanian and Foucaultian Approaches to the Body Essay Collection

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

Both Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault took the body as an object of critical inquiry but explored it in divergent ways. This collection of essays, under advance contract with McFarland and Company, will bring together scholars working from Lacanian and Foucaultian perspectives to interrogate the body. Collectively, the papers selected for this volume will aspire to answer, among others, the following questions: how do Lacan and Foucault approach the body, and what new forms of subjectivity emerge when we pay attention to the body? What are we allowed to do to or with our bodies, and what are we allowed to ask others to do to or with our bodies?
