As issues of nationalism, identity, and what it means to be 'British' continue to affect the cultural and political landscape of Britain itself, its impact on the islands that share (or have shared) a cultural heritage with the United Kingdom has become new ground for academics.

"The Aural Archive"

ACLA annual convention, New Orleans, April 1-4, 2010

Proposals due: Nov. 23, 2009 [Deadline extended]

This seminar aims to draw out several theoretical and methodological questions lurking behind recent work in media studies, performance studies, musicology, and literary studies: If the aural realm is ephemeral (as is often said), how does it factor into the historical record? When you listen to your archive, what and how do you hear? And how do you theorize the silences and noises in the archival grain?

[UPDATE] Media, Medium, Mediation: Media Aesthetics Before 1900 (ACLA 2010)

updated: 
Tuesday, November 17, 2009 - 10:24pm
Rachel Teukolsky

This seminar proposes to explore the aesthetic effects of early media--understood as "discourse networks," or channels of communication--by unsettling the idea of media itself. What might it mean to see media as medium, mediation, an in-between state, something mixed, or hybrid? Rather than seeing media history as a march of technological innovation, critics now describe emergent and residual media; they look to media in transition, overlapping media, co-existing visions of the retrograde and the futuristic. The idea of "media aesthetics" itself suggests porous boundaries between works of art and means of communication.

[UPDATE] Nov.13, 2010 The 18th Annual English and American Literature Association Conference: Everyday Life and Literature

Monday, November 16, 2009 - 7:56pm
English and American Literature Association of the Republic of China in Taiwan (EALA Taiwan) &Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures,National Chung Hsing University, Taichung, Taiwan

Literature is related to everyday life in a subtle way. Everyday life often manifests itself as the textual Other outside the major narrative thrust, and, therefore, receives scant critical attention in literary studies. In fact everyday life can be seen as an arena of two-way negotiation: it is where power reproduces itself in daily practice, but it is also where both personal and collective creativity intervenes in the reproduction of power. Moreover, everyday life often emerges, becomes visible, or acquires meaning through its engagement with other social categories—gender, race, class, ethnicity, nature, and so on, whose different relations with dominant regimes of power call for different strategies of everyday life practices.
