Ancient Mayans saw a rabbit. Taoists saw a toad. Modern, western cultures saw a man’s face. Contemporary science sees clues to the origin of life on earth. 

Challenging Precarity

Om Prakash Dwivedi/AURO University, Surat
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

This proposed international seminar aims to respond to the current state of world affairs: notably, the inherent ontological vulnerability of life and the economic, socially-conditioned precariousness of individuals, societies and populations, which have been heightened since the 2008 financial crisis. Caused by an economic shift in the labour market and global neoliberal capitalism, precarity has been increasing due to world-wide inequality as “more extensive and less visible patterns of global dispossession” and “relatively unstable and dispersed conditions of deprivation and insecurity” gain ground (During 2015).

American Literature in the World Graduate Conference, Yale University, April 5, 2019

Monday, December 10, 2018 - 10:23pm
Yale University, Department of English
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Teju Cole, Bei Dao and Rita Dove, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage, Joan Didion and Ta-Nehisi Coates without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 20, 2018

Seeking two additional papers for a two panel series at ANZSANA 2019 (Austin, Texas, February 6-8) relating the history and culture of Australia and New Zealand to settler colonialism as a transnational phenomenon. We are particularly interested in papers that:

 

• Engage in comparative work that relates the history and culture of Australia and/or New Zealand to that of the US

• Consider how Australia as a case study has shaped contemporary transnational understandings of settler colonialism as a structure of power. 

• Consider the relationship between critiques of settler colonialism and critiques of the patriarchy, especially vis-a-vis contemporary Indigenous feminist approaches.
