[UPDATE] "Labor Beyond Economy," ACLA April 4-7 2013

Friday, November 2, 2012 - 7:14pm
ACLA

Hannah Arendt argued that labor is anti-political because its collective nature precludes the possibility of individual consciousness and because it is performed in the name of the economy of the household. Similarly, scholarship on labor and class has been accused in the past of being too invested in the problem of economic distribution to the detriment of identity and political recognition.

[UPDATE] Society for Disability Studies 2013 Conference Date Change

Friday, November 2, 2012 - 12:17pm
Society for Disability Studies

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.

CALL FOR PAPERS

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

updated: 
Friday, November 2, 2012 - 12:02pm
American Comparative Literature Association 2013

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.
