[UPDATE] Utopian Animals: Society for Utopian Studies 2010 panel proposal (5/15/10)

updated: 
Monday, May 10, 2010 - 7:07pm
Keridiana Chez

In H.G. Wells's A Modern Utopia (1905), the narrator holds a remarkable conversation between the narrator and a dog-loving botanist who declares that the stated purposes of purging contagious diseases would never, for him, justify the mass extermination of pet dogs. The botanist staunchly concludes, "I do not like your utopia, if there are to be no dogs."

As evidenced by the March 2009 PMLA's special section and the October 2009 Chronicle of Higher Education's coverage on the emerging field of animal studies, the question of the animal has risen to mainstream prominence as scholars increasingly heed Claude Levi-Strauss' advice to think with the animal.

{UPDATE]--(Re)Constructing the American West--SAMLA 2010

updated: 
Monday, May 10, 2010 - 12:47pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association

In his essay "Walking," Henry David Thoreau says, "We go eastward to realize history and study the works of art and literature, retracing the steps of the race; we go westward as into the future, with a spirit of enterprise and adventure." Similarly, in All the King's Men, Robert Penn Warren's protagonist remarks on a trip westward, "For West is where we all plan to go some day." Yet, Warren's west is starkly different from Thoreau's. The myth of the American West has provided a geographical space for philosophers, writers, artists, and filmmakers to interrogate, personal as well as cultural, ambivalence towards the promises of Manifest Destiny, the American Dream, capitalism, individualism, diversity, and community.

ELN 49.1 "Transnational Exchange" Submissions due 10/1/10

English Language Notes

Call for Papers - Deadline for Submissions 10/1/10

ELN (English Language Notes) 49.1 (Spring/Summer 2011)

"Transnational Exchange"

As global flows of texts, media, persons, goods and cultures traverse national borders, what is gained, what is lost? How do we compare these modes of being, knowing and aesthetic expression as they move from one context to another? From what critical ground? This special issue of ELN invites contributions that investigate the epistemological, aesthetic, economic, cultural, social, political and/or disciplinary histories and methodologies of transnational exchange in an effort to determine critically the stakes and premises of such exchange.

[UPDATE] The Apocalypse and its Discontents 9/1/10; 12/11/20

updated: 
Monday, May 10, 2010 - 10:24am
University of Westminster

UPDATE:

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Adam Roberts, Royal Holloway

Whereas visions of destruction and fantasies of the end have always haunted humankind, the modern period in particular has been increasingly characterised by a mixed sense of concern and fascination with the apocalypse, and even more so during the twentieth century. Today we are surrounded by scenarios of imminent destruction and annihilation, by politicians, scientists, religious groups, and writers, among others. This conference aims to explore and even question the widespread appeal of the apocalypse and we are particularly interested in narratives that either challenge or offer alternative responses to the apocalypse.

CFP: Fashion Media (June 1, 2010)

Monday, May 10, 2010 - 6:40am
SCAN: Journal of Media, Arts, Culture (Macquarie University Sydney)

This special issue of SCAN: Journal of Media Arts Culture will explore new directions in fashion and design with regard to screen media, media convergence, cross media/creative collaborations and hybrid media and design aesthetics. While fashion media has been a stalwart of print media — books, magazines, and journals — in the digital era it represents a dynamic site of transformation. The new decade has witnessed a plethora of fashion films: satire (Bruno); bio-pics (Coco-Avant Chanel); documentary (The September Issue and Valentino: The Last Emperor) and fashion film cross-productions (Tom Ford's A Single Man).
