Representing Queer Time, Engaging Queer Theory - SCMS March 21-25, 2012

updated: 
Saturday, July 2, 2011 - 11:00pm
Society for Cinema and Media Studies

A central concern of contemporary queer theory is the question of time. Recent trends in queer critique have focused on issues of temporality in a range of arguments, from Lee Edelman's (2004) anti-social thesis on reproductive futurity to Elizabeth Freeman's (2010) work on erotohistoriography as a counter to chrononormativity. As J. Halberstam points out, the concept of queer time provides a valuable framework for assessing political and cultural change (2005; 4). For example, the focus on temporality has produced significant alternative genealogies, bringing into focus queer subjects otherwise occluded from heteronormative histories (Haberstam 2005; Roderick Ferguson 2004).

Modern Horizons Journal

For the May 2012 issue of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various philosophical, literary, artistic, and political expressions of place and particularity which have led to and are part of our time.

Place and particularity may be emphasised practically or addressed theoretically; in both cases, the importance of our own time, space, and experiences, and how these relate to what is different or other, is evident. Whether considering buying and growing food locally, participating in community activism, or working to sustain the diminishing realities of neighbourhoods, the urge to encourage and realise place and particularity is prevalent in our societies.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS Fourth world writings in English after 1947 until 1990

Dr Neerja Arun

Dr. Neerja Arun invites submissions to a collection of critical essays on Fourth world writings in English after 1947 until 1990. At the inaugural meeting of the World Council of Indigenous Peoples (WCIP), George Manuel introduced the concept of The Fourth World, a phrase employed to describe indigenous minorities throughout the earth. As the 1980s progress, modern nation states are increasingly being forced to come to terms with their indigenous minorities. The Laplanders of Finland, the Indians of Peru, and the Inuit of Canada are no longer articulating their aims and grievances solely through appeals to their respective national governments.

Call for Abstracts: Reconstruction 12.3 "(In)Securities"

Edited by Susana Araújo (University of Lisbon) and Susana S. Martins (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven)

In the past years, the world has been dealing with increasing anxieties about state and urban
security, which were largely exacerbated after traumatic experiences such as the 9/11 terrorist
attacks of New York and Washington D.C. in 2001, the 2004 train attacks in Madrid and the London bombings in 2005.
