In the Spirit of Nationalism: Reconsidering the Intersections of Nation and Literature

Department of English Tenth Graduate Student Conference

University of Ottawa

17-19 March 2017

 

Current events, such as Canada’s upcoming 150th anniversary, the Brexit vote, and the international affairs policies instilled by the Republican Party in the US, encourage a reconsideration of the concepts of nation, nationalism, and the nation centre. What has been the role of the nation in shaping cultural identities? What is the current place of the nation in a globalized world? Are nations defined by geographical boundaries? What is the role of literature as it intersects with these matters throughout history?

In his essay “Reflections on Exile,” the Arab intellectual Edward Said noted that the difference between earlier exiles and those of our own times is “scale”: “our age—with its modern warfare, imperialism, and the quasi-theological ambitions of totalitarian rulers—is indeed the age of the refugee, the displaced person, and mass migration.” Exile and migration—the experiences of being separated from one’s homeland—have informed intellectual, cultural, artistic and political thought since antiquity all over the world.

Proposals are invited for a session on “Minority Cultural Production and the Ethics of Pedagogies of Dissent” to be held at the American Studies Association conference in Chicago, Illinois from November 9-12th 2017.

 

Perhaps no other set of cultural objects has been more repeatedly called upon in pedagogies of dissent than minority cultural productions. Indeed, minority cultural production is often tasked to teach histories of domination and resistance along the axis of race, class, gender, and sexuality. Yet, such a task can often slides into liberal pedagogies of sympathetic identification and tolerance in which the aim is no longer material social transformation but personal understanding.

Natura 2017: Knowledges in Contact - Deadline Extended

updated: 
Tuesday, December 27, 2016 - 10:59pm
Natura: THe Science and Epistemology Working Group at Rutgers
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 20, 2017

Hosted by Natura, A Rutgers University Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Working Group focused on critical perspectives of Science and Epistemology, the 2017 Natura Conference explores how systems of knowledge interact. Isabelle Stengers calls for a cosmopolitics that will allow an “ecology of practices” to flourish. We seek papers that explore the tensions and potentials that arise when ways of knowing collide. How do new and emergent ways of knowing interact with established systems of knowledge? How has this process occurred historically as well as in the present? How are emerging epistemologies created, consolidated, and defended? By whom and for what purposes?
