Seeking writers to present work at a creative session at the NeMLA convention in Pittburgh, PA, April 12-15, 2018
ACCUMULATION TECHNOLOGIES: DATABASES AND 'OTHER' ARCHIVES is an international symposium focused on archival practices. It is conducted within the framework of the Research Project Global Art Archive (GAA), and organized by Art Globalization Interculturality (AGI) and the Faculty of Geography and History of the University of Barcelona.
In the past few years archive has generated a great interest within art theories and practices, as well as in other fields of culture, such as the scientific or the academic ones. The expansion of this discussion has finally given voice to agents as data technicians and archivists, whom surely have a lot to say around the archive.
The 11th edition of the Innovation in Language Learning International Conference will take place in Florence, Italy, on 8 - 9 November 2018.
Sound has always been there. However, its ephemeral condition has prevented us from critically listening to the past and even from thinking about our everyday sonic experiences. Moreover, the sonic materialization of the Logos —voice— has been systematically relegated to a second level, even when orality was present in the production of any kind of text.
At the 2nd International Laurence Sterne Foundation Conference (26-28 October 2017, in Bydgoszcz, Poland) Prof. Peter de Voogd will be convening the panel "Sterne and (Post)Modernism revisited".

This panel examines the relationship between identity, memory and the physical, linguistic, affective and geographic expressions of place in Latin American and Latino/a literature (20th-21st centuries). In particular, we will look at the ways movement and translation (linguistic and physical) serve as strategies for questioning, redeeming, liberating or reconstructing marginal places (e.g. prisons, slums, colonies) and identities. This session also aims to address the relationship between representations of place and theoretical debates surrounding nomadism (cf. Braidotti and Forcinito), intersectionality (cf. Crenshaw and Collins), and feminism/queer studies (cf. Haraway and Freccero) as modes of resisting fixity and fostering fluidity.
As Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz indicate in their article “The New Modernist Studies,” recent trends in modernist studies have operated a radical revision of the term “modernism,” moving away from the idea that modernism is confined to a single place (Europe, North America, and the West in general) or a single time (roughly 1890-1940). As the map of “transnational” and “global” modernisms expands, ever more attention has been given to new languages, phenomena of bilingualism and multilingualism, and translation as a fundamental practice in modernist writing (Yao, Rogers).
We seek proposals highlighting East-West literary connections, particularly interested in cross-disciplinary approaches which compare literary topics or methodologies with the fields of history, philosophy, religion, or film. Please see the link below for information on paper proposal submissions.
