ACLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 23, 2017

 ACLA 2018 | March 29-April 1 | UCLA This seminar invites papers on theories and practices of periodization in modern and contemporary literature. Participants are invited to share meditations, gambits, polemics, practicums, readings and responses relating to the shifting time-shapes of their fields. Are there certain subfields/approaches that are more or less bound by periodization? Does certain content necessitate or pressure a more active periodizing logic? Do certain objects seem to allow a periodizing quietism? Papers could address, for example, relationships between historicization and periodization, literary geographies and historical/cultural eras, or comparative method and literary time.

Travel narratives are unavoidably influenced by the changes in perspectives and new experiences that take place as bodies cross national, political, and cultural boundaries. They also situate the body, particularly the gendered body, within a larger context that ascribes bodily roles and hierarchies through the rhetoric of power and mobility.

[ACLA 2018] Toward New Nuclear Criticism

In 1984, Diacritics published a “Colloquium on Nuclear Criticism,” exploring the need for a new subsection of theory addressing the nuclear age. Critics understood this age to have begun in 1945 but to have accelerated in the 1980s when stockpiles of nuclear weapons were at their peak and rhetoric between the US and the Soviet Union grew increasingly hostile. Total nuclear war was the main concern of this nuclear criticism. General audiences used the term “unthinkable” to emphasize the magnitude of nuclear war between the superpowers banking on the deterrence value of aiming as many warheads as possible at the enemy.
