Contemporary Labor and Cultural Exchange (ACLA 2011; Deadline: Nov. 12)

Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 4:52pm
American Comparative Literature Association

The structure of the labor force and the experience of work have undergone a number of significant shifts in the past half-century. The transition to a post-industrial or service-based economy in America and other Western countries was accompanied by the substitution of a geographically dispersed working class for the local workers of the preceding era. As Linda McDowell argues, this new class increasingly performs embodied service work, much of which was once located in the home. In more prestigious service occupations, "the physical attributes of the body" and the worker's emotions are also an integral part of the labor performed.

Decomposing Fictions: A Special Issue of Horror Studies

updated: 
Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 2:01pm
Steven Bruhm

Julia Kristeva's work on abjection reminds us that horror is often keyed to things that decompose, rot, or lose their form. This formal concern is a literary one as well: fictions of horror also revel in de-composition, that is, in significations that lose their composure, in letters that refuse to convey, or in utterances that seem to be without subject or object. Horror Studies is seeking essays for a special issue devoted to horror and textuality that will address problems of textual decomposition. In the twentieth century's turn to the film image as arguably the primary vehicle for horror, "Decomposing Fictions" will address how theories and practices of textuality resonate with or operate differently from the visual horror image.

From the botanical studies of Catharine Parr Trail, and the faith-related empiricism of Christophe Regnault, to the literary imaginings of evolution, meteorology, palaeontology, chemistry, and biology of contemporary writers such as Christian Bök, Nino Ricci, Rivka Galchen, Nicole Brossard, and Tim Bowling, the connections between science and fiction have become enmeshed in the literatures of Canada through the historical questioning of faith, reason, epistemology, and the subjective

The deadline for submission of abstracts to the 21st Southern Writers Symposium has been extended to Monday, Nov. 8, 2010. For the next Symposium, scheduled for Feb. 25-26, 2011, organizers seek papers that explore connections between the literature of the U.S. South and that of the rest of the Americas, including Latin American literature, Canadian literature, and literature associated with the United States as a whole rather than with the South in particular. Presenters might explore ways in which specific southern writers, general trends in southern literature, and themes considered uniquely southern connect to writers, trends, and themes outside the U.S. South but within the Americas.
