Our Ninth International Melville Conference, coinciding with a major year of the Civil War sesquicentennial observances, focuses on the Washington-area War experiences of Melville and Whitman, seen largely through their poetry, private writings, and time spent in the capital area—although all scholarly topics will be considered, including approaches to teaching, digitizing, and recontextualizing the authors and their milieu.

We anticipate a wide range of scholarly presentations, teaching roundtables, several plenary addresses, digital demonstrations, and events around Washington, DC. We are interested in paper and panel topics that include (but are not limited to) the following areas of interest:

In the light of massive catastrophes – the earthquakes near Sendai and Christchurch, the tsunamis of Acheh and Katrina's devastation of New Orleans – the question of urban and architectural reconstruction invokes the question of remembering. What is this 'past' that we remember and on which we base our future reconstructions? What images of the past do we call upon in our decisions to build or not to build – and how do they negotiate the terrain between memory and history, nature and culture, technology and sustainability, planning and responding, tradition and innovation, foundations and interstices?

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Laura Marks, Simon Fraser University

The Art and Design Graduate Student Association (ADGSA) at the University of Alberta currently seeks proposals for a graduate student symposium on the topic of instability in art and design. We are interested in projects that address the role of inconstancy, unpredictability, degradation, oscillation, and/or transformation in cultural production. The event will promote an understanding of instability not as a hindrance or limitation, but as a pervasive condition that can be exposed and even harnessed to productive critical ends.

2012 ASA Call for Papers

Mixtape Logics: Listening to Empire and Resistance

What might it mean to listen to culture, instead of simply critique it? Could our thinking become as dynamic, inventive, and entrenched in the culture in which it is produced as, say – a mixtape?

This panel proposes that "listening," as a critical act, might produce a different way of thinking about empire and resistance in the 21st century. And it takes the figure of the mixtape – an item as beloved as it is differently understood by the various subcultures that circulate them – as a unique cultural object that listens: Created from that which it critiques, at once both of and not of the culture upon which it reflects.
