DEADLINE APPROACHING: INCS 2019: Monuments and Memory: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

updated: 
Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - 9:00pm
Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 17, 2018

Ongoing public debate over politically charged public monuments reminds us how much is at stake in the shaping of cultural memory, whether through durable physical structures, portable or reproducible aesthetic works, or discursive representations. How were monumentality and the preservation of the past conceived in the nineteenth century? How might we reconceive our own ways of remembering the nineteenth century? We invite proposals for papers and panels that explore monuments in the broadest sense of the word—those from as well as those about the nineteenth century. We also welcome papers that consider the concepts of monumentality and/or memory as they pertain to humanistic disciplines and engage with nineteenth-century studies.

Armenian Studies means different things to different people. This conference aims to bring scholars of diverse time periods in this field into conversation with one another for reciprocal enrichment. We welcome graduate student projects that explore the mutually constitutive relationship between ancient and modern Armenian culture. Each paper should grapple with intersecting elements of both past and present. In the spirit of collaborative cooperation, invited faculty members will also foster mentorship within the field of Armenian Studies by participating actively in panel discussion.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 15, 2019

We seek projects pertaining to health, sickness, and everything in between and at the extremes of these conditions that span and involve the Spanish-speaking and Lusophone worlds. Drawing on a variety of approaches, including but not limited to, biopolitics, necropolitics, spirituality and religion, queer studies, the history of medicine and epidemics, and affect theory, we invite you to consider the figure of the (g)host, regardless of your period of interest. Questions about the limits of the bodily and conceptualizations of liminality as well as interdisciplinary papers are of particular interest.

“Environment at the Margins” and Global Anglophone/Postcolonial African Novels

updated: 
Monday, October 29, 2018 - 10:50am
Oklahoma State University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

This panel, which has been accepted for the 2019 ASLE biennial conference, seeks to respond to the following questions, among others: How do contemporary African novels inform us about the cultural formations and emerging global realities in the post-1960 world and help us reimagine African environments at the margins? In what ways postcolonial ecocritical engagements with African fictional narratives are crucial to open up the imaginative horizon of non-Western environmental epistemologies and ontologies? Why is the novel form significant in invoking both the place-based and the planetary sense of environmental imagination?

Lenin 2020 edited collection—call for abstracts (Oct. 31)

Editors: Alla Ivanchikova (ivanchikova@hws.edu) and Robert Maclean (robertrmaclean@gmail.com).

This edited collection of essays seeks to answer the following question: what does “Lenin” and “Leninism” signify today? What is the future of Leninism? Why, after thirty years of iconoclasm (that involved the removal of statues of Lenin throughout the former socialist world), in spite of concerted efforts to demote, deconstruct, and discredit Leninist mode of thinking, does the specter of Lenin return to haunt our turbulent political present?
