"New Directions"

April 11-15, 2018

The University of Texas at Austin

The twenty-sixth annual BWWC invites papers and panel proposals interpreting the theme of “New Directions.” Since the landmark “Generations” conference of 2017 invites a retrospective look back, “New Directions” will encourage turning to the future to ask crucial methodological, theoretical, and content-based questions about our fields’ key concepts and literatures.

DEADLINE TODAY: Uneasy Feelings: Space, Affective Relations, and Dis/orientation

This panel seeks to explore what it means to feel/be uneasy. How are feelings of unease depicted: what are the movements; what are the affects; what (if any) are the boarders of unease? Is there a difference in representations of unease in literature, film, fine arts, etc.; or the proliferation of unease in contemporary cultural studies? In her feminist critiques of happiness and phenomenology, Sara Ahmed notes how feelings of unease can saturate a body or environment: “The word ‘comfort’ suggests well-being and satisfaction, but it also suggests an ease and an easiness. To follow the rules of [heteronormativity] is to be at ease in a world that reflects back the form one inhabits as an ideal.

The figure of the human that emerges from Renaissance and Enlightenment discourses is an unmistakably imperialist entity, excluding all that it perceives as a negation of itself. This ostensibly fixed category of the human informs, if not dictates, the ways in which those who are positioned outside of “the human” experience what we call “the self.” This is to suggest that those who wish to be, and behave as, human must, as the philosopher Sylvia Wynter argues, “circumcise themselves from themselves in order to become fully human.”

‘America’ in the Performance of Identity in the British Rock Memoir

The contemporary rock memoir attracts attention as both a very productive and increasingly varied sub-genre of life writing – the more so in the Anglo-American context, especially where it concerns subjects who were at the peak of their powers in the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s. The current vogue for autobiographical retrospection in print media may be explained by the rock stars’ urge to set the record straight after a lifetime of mythologization by fans, critics and the media. Indeed, a great number of these memoirs focus on the sources of their authors’ authenticity.

“Progress means: humanity emerges from its spellbound state no longer under the spell of progress as well, itself nature, by becoming aware of its own indigenousness to nature and by halting the mastery over nature through which nature continues its mastery.” — Theodor Adorno, “Progress” (p. 62)

“This future is unthinkable. Yet here we are, thinking it.” — Timothy Morton, Dark Ecology (p. 1)
