‘What happens when Derrida, a great thinker, becomes silent? What becomes of Derrida, what becomes of his friends, those who read him, think through him, speak to him?’(Douzinas, “Adieu Derrida”) With this rhetoric question, Costas Douzinas starts a book Adieu Derrida, in which renowned contemporary thinkers (Jean-Luc Nancy, Alain Badiou, Gayatri Spivak, Slavoj Žižek and others) reflect on the intellectual legacy of one of the most important philosophical figures of 20thcentury, Jacques Derrida. Indeed, what does it mean now, after almost 15 years after Derrida’s death, to read him, to think through him, to speak to him? 

EXTENDED DEADLINE—Panel, Women of the Avant-Garde and Political Dissent: Resisting Power from the Margins

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.

The ongoing comparison of the current administration to the Nixon administration calls for a reexamination of the scandal that brought down the latter. Befitting NeMLA’s conference location, this panel seeks to reexamine classic and contemporary depictions of Watergate in order to illuminate the scandal’s connections between literature, film and American politics and culture from the seventies to the present. Accordingly, this panel seeks readings of Watergate, past and present, as depicted in film, literature and culture. Readings can also reexamine Watergate as a moment in American cultural memory and its contemporary ramifications.

Through her short career, Shirley Jackson wrote about about haunted houses, dysfunctional families, wayward children, attempts at maintaining a sane work-life balance, as well as restricted, doomed women in a period when Americans were constantly reminded of their civic duties to manage and maintain clean, comfortable, ‘normal’ domestic spaces. But as evidenced by letters from her fans, Shirley Jackson’s approach to domesticity opened up the possibility for something different, something more for women who felt trapped by their home lives.

ReFocus: The Films of João Pedro Rodrigues & João Rui Guerra da Mata

 

With a career that spans over twenty years, João Pedro Rodrigues and João Rui Guerra da Mata are one of the most creative duos in contemporary filmmaking working within the context of Portuguese cinema. Acknowledged by several film festivals (Cannes, Indie Lisboa, Locarno, New York) as major Portuguese directors, and by the Harvard Film Archive as creators whose works “reflect the multifarious history of film, from classic genres to experimental film”, both filmmakers have contributed to the growing interest in Portuguese cinema.
