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.

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.

Moving Home: Poetics of Place in Latin American and Latino/a Literature

Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - 9:31pm
NeMLA April 12-15, 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

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.

REMINDER: Modernism's World Languages

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).

Culture Matters: "The state of cultural studies"

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 - 5:42pm
Culture In Focus
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 1, 2017

Culture In Focus, a new eJournal of the English Department at Middle Georgia State University, is seeking papers for its inaugural issue.  Never before has culture been so important. Culture, after all, matters! So for our first issue of Culture in Focus we are setting our sights on nothing less than the state of cultural studies as it is being practiced throughout the realms of language and literature, and indeed, in all the relevant areas that fall within the scope of this journal. What is new in critical analysis? What is being reassessed or reinterpreted? What are cultural specialists doing and saying now?
