We urgently seek a replacement chapter for an upcoming volume of criticism on literary works that deal with the theme of the hero's quest. The volume will be part of Salem Press's and EBSCO's Critical Insights series, a literary criticism series designed to introduce high school and undergraduate students to commonly studied works, authors, and literary themes.

VISUAL SPACES

in association with Asian College of Journalism, Chennai

"The space of our primary perception, the space of our dreams and that of our passions hold within themselves qualities that seem intrinsic: there is a light, ethereal, transparent space, or again a dark, rough, encumbered space; a space from above, of summits, or on the contrary a space from below of mud; or again a space that can be flowing like sparkling water, or space that is fixed, congealed, like stone or crystal."
—Michael Foucault, "Other Spaces"

Representations of Catastrophe in Science Fiction Film- ACLA 2012 Providence Deadline November 15

Elif Sendur/ Binghamton University

From its inception, film created the very ground for thinking of catastrophe and different approaches to the end of the world. Whether it is Lang's Metropolis that pushes the dynamics of industrialism to its end or Whedon's Serenity that imagines the aftermath of this monstrous industrialism, science fiction remains a medium where depression, collapse, catastrophe or the end of times can be thought in its utmost limits. Michael Haneke's Time of the Wolf not only did imagine the end as such but also showed the aftermath of a such end. Most recently, it was Lars Von Trier's Melancholia (2011) that pinpointed our own depressive era by collapsing earth with a rogue planet.

"Kairos and Qualia, or the Voices of the Undead" (ACLA Seminar, 11/15/11, 3/29/12-4/21/12)

updated: 
Friday, October 21, 2011 - 5:35pm
ACLA 2012

The concept of the undead focuses our attention upon the paradoxical, aporetic, seemingly-permeable boundaries between life and death, and between past and present. Within the scope of this seminar, we are interested in how embodied or estranged voices, narrative, and stories, pass through those boundaries.
