CFP: [20th] Utopia

updated: 
Monday, January 28, 2008 - 4:24pm
Shaun Morgan

Soundings: An Interdisciplinary Journal invites article submissions from
across the disciplines that investigate the ways in which conceptions of
utopia past and present address the social and political realities of the
twenty-first century. Utopian thought is both denounced as escapism, as a
flight from the realities of the present, and endorsed as the necessary
first step in any thoroughgoing assessment of political conditions. We
are interested in the ways in which utopian thought remains possible and
viable in the contemporary political and moral landscape.

African Literature in the Wake of Violence

Africa’s violent history frames much of its fiction and film, but many
writers and filmmakers are turning their attention toward the more
complicated process of moving past violence to the task of rebuilding. We
seek papers on literature and film that deal with issues that emerge in the
wake of violence, such as truth commissions, public and private forms of
grief, refugee camps, and the reinstatement of order.

Please send 250-word abstracts and inquiries to Katy Hanggi
(khanggi_at_emory.edu) by March 15, 2008.

Where the Streets Are Re-named…(dis)junctions 2008
Abstract deadline: 2/15/08
In recent years, critical theory has worked hard to challenge the
cartography of scholarly inquiry. As a result, distinguishable borders
between previously exclusive disciplines, critical approaches,
and “schools of thought” have been increasingly punctured, washed out,
and otherwise blurred. We can no longer read or write from a “sedentary
point of view,” but must instead negotiate an ever-shifting landscape
that requires new maps.
