American Comparative Literature Association Annual Conference

From the challenges of protection posed by the refugee to the Tea Party's diagnosis of government as deeply pernicious to individual liberty, to collectivities that emerge through globalizing technologies, the State's grip over lives and subjectivities seems increasingly precarious. On the one hand, it consolidates and exercises power over citizens, whose precariousness owes to their dependence on identities conferred by injunctions of the state; on the other hand, it has become a site of resistance, an idea against which subject positions, collectivities, and relations are mobilized and theorized.

Forces at Play: Bodies, Power, and Spaces--Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference--Proposals due January 25

Forces at Play: Bodies, Power, and Spaces

Cyber bullying, the male gaze in cinema, SlutWalk in Toronto, the canonization of slave narratives, border rhetoric in the classroom – issues such as these take up the ways bodies, power, and spaces converge in a re-seeing and re-interpreting of historical and contemporary social complexities. Investigating this nexus in our discursive and material realities gives us the language for articulating the machinations of power and space that construct and dismantle singular and collective (im)material bodies.
