ACLA 2020: Literary Diagnosis and the Anti-Medical Humanities

UPDATE: Work on international and/or non-English authors especially welcome!!

With Health Humanities programs on the rise and medical memoirs flooding our bookshelves, it is easy to forget that the alliances forged between literary representation and medical discourse are new and fragile. Writers from a multitude of traditions have frequently squared off against doctors for the right to diagnostic prominence, particularly in capturing the "essence" of disease and the dis-eased body/mind. Their motivations, meanwhile, have spanned from the starkly political to the intensely personal.

The genre turn in global literature has inspired scholarship exploring the relationship between generic form and contemporary themes. In addition to Caren Irr’s Toward the Geopolitical Novel (2014), which investigates the newly emerging genre of the international political novel, and Theodore Martin’s Contemporary Drift (2017), a comprehensive analysis of contemporary genre fiction and filmwe have also seen scholarship tracking specific genre forms: Contemporary Literature’s 2006 special issue, Immigrant Fictions; Jeremy Rosen’s 2018 article “Literary Fictions and the Genres of Genre Fiction” in Post45; and Sheri-Marie Harrison’s 2019 series Global Horror in Post45, to name a few.

This panel explores different urban spaces depicted in popular French and Francophone cultural production, such as crime and science fiction artworks. What are the connotations of urban spaces and how are they represented in these narratives? What does it mean for crime to be located in a particular space? What do construals of futuristic cityscapes say about our understanding of present-day cities? How do these descriptions compare to earlier representations of urban spaces, such as those that appear in realist novels, historical fiction, theater or poetry?

The world is in crisis: socially, politically, environmentally. We are increasingly confronted with notions of otherness as the world is shrinking – we interact with diverse cultures, ideas, agendas as we never have before. Yet, at the same time, we are increasingly polarized in our thinking, with the rise of a global right-wing agenda challenging a progressive wave of policies the world over. Yet, these crises seem to pale in consideration of the increasingly urgent climate crisis.

Twenty-first century media have seen a rise not only in remakes and “re-imaginings” (television series like Hawaii 5-0 or Battlestar Galactica, video games like Tomb Raider, or films like Ghostbusters) but also transmedia adaptations (comic book series becoming television becoming video games, board games and Hallowe’en costumes, a la The Walking Dead), works based in nostalgic callback (Ready Player One, Wreck-it Ralph), fan-written versions of media (Fifty Shades of Grey is fan fiction of Twilight) and genre-bending remixes (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).

The history of censorship in modern South Asia goes back to the Registration of Books Act (1867), used to track anti-state sedition; and to the various indigenous and British non-governmental associations of civilians who organized themselves as the guardians of literary culture around the same time. Both these currents continue to the contemporary moment in many ways. Genres of dissent are governed by various acts, laws, associations, extra-judicial modes of repression, and more recently, by social media.

Writing without Writing: Fragments and Survivance

Monday, September 9, 2019 - 3:05pm
ACLA 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 23, 2019

Since the nineteenth century to the present, fragmentary writing has been widely deployed in literature and philosophy (i.e. Ernst Bloch, Schlegel, Mallarmé, Adorno, Maurice Blanchot, Kafka, Beckett etc.) as a strategy to disrupt the idea of totality by and through writing. Fragmentary writing as an incomplete totality, bears absent voices and traces and alludes to a whole.

"LITERARY CREATIVITY TO MARK THE END OF INDENTURESHIP IN THE CARIBBEAN FOR LABOURERS FROM INDIA"

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 9, 2019

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the year of freedom from indentureship for Indian labour. Ninety-two years had elapsed between start of the system and this red letter day when they say the system finally collapsed. It was a relief for many of those caught by its myriad snares. The worlds and the subjectivities that were imbricated in the system, giving rise to it or succumbing to the weight of its oppression or emerging from under it, have not yet been fully explored. We are proposing an anthology of stories in your unheard voices in order to create an opportunity for exploration.

 

Can you write a story or a poem that imagines what it was like for someone from the Indian sub-continent to become an indentured labourer?
