[UPDATE] CFP: Animals, Animality, and National Identity (ACLA 3/17-3/20/2016; due 9/23/15)

full name / name of organization: 
Keridiana Chez
contact email: 
kchez@bmcc.cuny.edu

Submission for papers begins today through Sept. 23rd.

This seminar will explore how national identities have been forged through the manipulation and deployment of animals and animality. How have animals, and ideas associated with such animals, been used to construct imagined communities? How have these constructions helped to strengthen or weaken national borders? How have assertions of imagined community, as expressed via relations with animals, overlapped with racial/ethnic identities?

In naming both animals and animality, I allude to the intersection of material practices with the representational appropriation of ideas and values of certain animals, which together forged the affective ties of groups or nations. The seminar also hopes to pursue issues surrounding the internal production of national identities by citizens and residents, as well as tensions arising when “outsiders” attempt to challenge, co-op, or otherwise influence these identities.

Interdisciplinary studies of literature, film, and culture are welcome.
