This is a very important note to inform you that the dates for the 2013 SDS Conference have been moved back by exactly one week to Wednesday, June 26 - Saturday, June 29, 2013. The location of the conference will remain the same, the Doubletree Hotel at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, USA.

This change was made necessary because the rapid increase in the size of attendance at the annual SDS Conference. Since this location had been originally arranged, the size of the conference has increased by nearly 50%! In order to ensure plenty of sleeping rooms and appropriate meeting space - SDS needed to renegotiate with the host hotel.

ACLA 2013: Taking Time, Third Time: Decolonization and the Un-syncing of Global Standard Time (Due:11/15)

American Comparative Literature Association 2013
contact email: 

Surviving (in) the world of '24/7'? Questioning the implicit, paradigmatic privileging of the geospatial in Postcolonial Studies, this seminar focuses instead on time (un)coordinated as such, as that which foregrounds and permeates practices of decolonization across the globe. We believe that time, itself a condition of possibility for decolonization (e.g., it takes time), is to be more actively factored into the ongoing, polylocational theorization of the syncopated legacies of colonialism, ranging from epochal questions around the postwar Cold War to everyday issues of how (not) to sync 'now' with the rhythms of global capital.

[UPDATE: Deadline extended] Narrating Identity Formation, On and Off The Map; ACLA 2013 seminar, Toronto, April 5-7, 2013

Coordinators: Dr. Georgia Christinidis (Humboldt University Berlin), Vera Alexander (University of Copenhagen)

Like any advanced cartographic process, mapping identity formation requires an imaginary 'cartographic grid.' Until recently, narratives of identity formation, including, in particular, the genres of autobiography and the Bildungsroman, seemed to foreground the temporal dimension over the spatial. However, in "Of Other Spaces", Michel Foucault argues that "We are at a moment … when our experience of the world is less that of a long life developing through time than that of a network that connects points and intersects with its own skein." This seminar investigates how narrative identity constructions are affected by this change.

Call for Papers:

RICHARD RODRIGUEZ RECAPITALIZED

Class, race, sexuality, and religion are major themes in the work of Richard Rodriguez, and of the polarization of the political body today. How do we read Rodriguez in the current context of polarized politics, trickle down economic ideology, gay marriage debates, anti-immigrant legislation (in states such as Arizona, Utah, and Alabama), voting one's religious values rather than for one's class interests, and anti-government and anti-social program sentiments in an age of fiscal austerity?
