Zombies vs. Professors: An Academic Symposium (April 13th-15th, 2012)

updated: 
Monday, October 17, 2011 - 10:58am
Indiana University/University of Louisville

Zombies seem to everywhere these days, and now they're banging on the gates of the Academy . . .

The undead hordes have always represented a challenge to humanism and civility, to the humanities and civilization. Stalking the cultural horizon, they wreak havoc on notions of identity and agency, ideologies of expression, mechanisms of production and consumption, and boundaries of property and safety, culture and theory, bios and zoe, death and non-death.

The Writing of Spiritual Crisis and Conversion

American Comparative Literature Association (March 29-April 1, 2012)

Spiritual conversion is truly one of the most radical changes one can experience or live through. Pierre Hadot emphasizes the dual nature of conversion: both as repetition – as a re-birth and the reiteration of the original event on which the religion we convert to is based – and as a new creation – as a radical rupture from what is familiar, depending on some sort of illumination that can make the soul embark on a new path.

Theorizing the Fantastic in 20th Century Art [Nov. 15]

Sunday, October 16, 2011 - 3:35pm
Alison Heney, SUNY

In his short essay, "Aminadab or The Fantastic Considered as a Language," Sartre proposes that, "so long as it was thought possible to escape the conditions of human existence through asceticism, mysticism, metaphysical disciplines or the practice of poetry, fantasy was called upon to fulfill a very definite function."

However, as the post-war period sharpened the artist's sense of abandonment to the realm of the human, Fantasy, as Sartre explains, gave up "the exploration of transcendental reality" and resigned itself "to transcribing the human condition."

Sex...or Something Like It

The first step in is penetration. One frame out and two bodies present themselves. And more and more frames reveal more and more bodies, many different bodies in many different bodies in many different frames.

This is Sex...or Something Like It.

If we zoom in on microscopic levels, past the salacious tissues of skin and muscle, chromosomes are abound. 23 pairs with two minimum coupling at conception, determining identity.

This is Sex...or Something Like It.

And who assumed the two in the second sentence were engaged in conjugal conversation, or that the scene was limited to only two? What were the notions that allowed for such assumptions to take hold?

Sex...or Something Like It.

ACLA Seminar (March 29 - April 1): The Modernist Self and its Discontents

The American Comparative Literature Association's 2012 Annual Meeting will be held at Brown University from March 29 to April 1.

Seminar Theme: The Modernist Self and its Discontents

While social crisis calls for reform and redress that entail institutional effort and collective action, it also tends to dislocate the self from its familiar emotional, cultural, political, and ethical positions. Created around the period of what Ezra Pound called a "botched" civilization, the modernist literature in the twentieth century often foregrounds the relation between self and portentous social forces and examines the experiential and affective complexities in great depths and innovative forms.
