2017 was a year of feminist action and 2018 strongly continues this movement: the year began with the national Women’s March in DC, and the year closed with media reporting mass cover-ups of sexual exploitation and abuse in Hollywood and with the reporting of women finding power in uniting their voices. The #metoo movement was birthed and has become a rallying cry for continued awareness of misogynistic practices, collaboration to resist gendered violence, and recover women’s innate worth. Oprah Winfrey summed up these actions in her 2018 Golden Globes speech stating, “Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.

Slave Poetics and the Political Present (interdisciplinary)

updated: 
Friday, January 19, 2018 - 8:55am
American Studies Association, Atlanta, GA, Nov. 8th-11th
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 26, 2018

In his 2012 essay “On Failing to Make the Past Present,” Stephen Best argues that the slave archive is not always “a ready prism for apprehending the black political present,” pressuring contemporary scholars to make a distinction between today’s political crises and black diasporic history. And yet, recent political regressions force us to re-examine how our current moment may be informed by and understood through the optics of abolition, emancipation, and reconstruction. This panel seeks to re-focus current critical thought on the links between the traumatic past and the historical present by examining how the poetry of slavery accentuates—and even depends upon—these linkages.

So—satire is no more—I feel it die—

Be graced through life, and flattered in his grave.

Irreconcilable differences? Peace and Conflict in Irish Literature, Culture, and Politics

Second and Final Call for Papers:

Irreconcilable differences? Peace and Conflict in Irish Literature, Culture, and Politics. 10th Biennial Conference of the Nordic Irish Studies Network (Kristiansand, Norway, 3-4 May 2018)

Irish Studies is a contested field. Much of this can be construed as a healthy sign of differences of opinion or approach, but dissension can also be the source of weakening fragmentation and waste. This conference wishes to address notions of peace and conflict in a constructive manner, in a way that crosses the disciplines of Irish Studies.

Of bodies changed to other forms I tell; 

You Gods, who have yourselves wrought every change, 

Inspire my enterprise and lead my lay 

In one continuous song from nature’s first 

Remote beginnings to our modern times. 

- Ovid, Metamorphoses, Book I 

 

To recognize in paranoia a distinctively rigid relation to temporality, at once anticipatory and retroactive, averse above all to surprise, is also to glimpse the lineaments of other possibilities.
