Bridge Between Japanese Popular Culture and Language Teaching - Deadline Extended to 01/20/2024

It has been challenging to maintain healthy enrollments in Japanese language courses at all college levels in the U.S. Although this problem is more serious in small liberal-arts colleges, state universities also have the same problem especially in their advanced Japanese courses. If we think about the prevalence of Japanese popular cultural products such as anime, manga, music, games, V-tubers, and traditional artifacts among college students in the United States, we cannot easily understand why the number of students who learn Japanese has been decreasing in many institutions.

“Exploring the Anthropocene in Literature”

The Anthropocene refers to a proposed epoch that recognizes the significant and lasting impact of human activities on the Earth's geology and ecosystems. This concept has gained prominence in discussions about environmental change and serves as a framework for understanding the profound alterations humans have made to the planet. Postcolonial perspectives often highlight the role of colonial powers in exploiting natural resources from colonized territories. The Anthropocene can be seen as an extension of this historical exploitation, with the environmental consequences affecting not only the colonized regions but the entire planet.

In 1949, James Playstead Wood described the Saturday Evening Post as “seen and read everywhere. People came to know it as they knew their own names. Its influence was pervasive and immeasurable, spreading simultaneously in many directions. . . . The Post became both a powerful and continuing social force and almost a sign and symbol of the country itself.” Under the editorship of George Horace Lorimer, and for many decades after, the Post was the most widely read U.S. magazine of its era. And yet the Post has been all but invisible in contemporary scholarship on print culture.

CERÆ: AN AUSTRALASIAN JOURNAL OF MEDIEVAL AND EARLY MODERN STUDIES
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 29, 2024

A little over ten years ago, in 2013, a group of postgraduate students largely based in Perth, Western Australia, came together to meet a need within the Australasian publishing market: while there were a number of high-quality postgraduate journals, none were specifically focused on the field of Medieval and Early Modern Studies. In response to this, they founded Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies. Intended to be accessible and community building, with a focus on the digital humanities, the journal was founded on a commitment to being open-access and prioritizing graduate students’ and early career researchers’ work.

In Literature and Evil, Bataille argues for a close connection between literature and "Evil" as a sovereign and productive value, which is defined against an oppressive use of reason that "flattens" all knowledge into a reductive uniformity. Bataille finds in Blake's A Marriage of Heaven and Hell "agitations", "poetic violence" and "lacerations" that occur in Blake’s drive towards human totality and death. At the same time, Bataille observes that this violence and Evil also "raise us to glory" in Blake's attribution to Evil of "the wisdom of Hell that heralds ... truth” --albeit a truth irreducible to representation, priority of the logos, and assimilation by reason.

International Conference on Endangered Folk Literarture and Culture of Jetor and other Indian Indigenous Communities: Documentation, Digitalization, and Translation in the Global Context

Every community craves a sense of identity in this world, and continuity with the cultural past. This is more so with the communities whose language, literature and culture are on the verge of extinction on account of multiple factors. Literature and culture can offer indigenous communities a sense of belonging and promote social cohesion, respect for diversity, human creativity as well as help people connect with each other. Hence, the call to preserve endangered folk cultural heritage of communities such as the Jetor, an indigenous nomadic community of Paschim Medinipur and Jhargram settled on the edges of Kangsabati and Subarnarekha. UNESCO has declared 2022-2032 as the decade of indigenous languages.

[CALL EXTENDED] “Consilience”: Exploring History Across the Disciplines

updated: 
Friday, December 15, 2023 - 12:18pm
Dalhousie Graduate History Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 12, 2024

Every year, Dalhousie’s Graduate History Society hosts a conference to foster critical thinking and meaningful discussion on the discipline. This year’s theme of consilience hopes to spark discussion on the importance of interdisciplinary research. The importance of consilience is fostering a dialogue between disciplines that traditionally have little interaction. In this case, the more we know, the more we grow, and this year’s conference intends to highlight how interdisciplinary approaches to history should be celebrated, providing a sense of unity in knowledge. The 25th annual conference will be a hybrid event in Halifax at Dalhousie University. Consilience will consider graduate-level papers in any area of study featuring an overlap with history.

Culture and Conflict

 

“In the struggle between tradition and innovation, which is the basic theme of internal cultural development in historical societies, innovation always wins. But cultural innovation is generated by nothing other than the total historical movement—a movement which, in becoming conscious of itself as a whole, tends to go beyond its own cultural presuppositions and toward the suppression of all separations.”

InVisible Culture: CFP 38: Ecologies of Excess

updated: 
Friday, December 15, 2023 - 12:12pm
Invisible Culture: A Journal for Visual Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2024

To theorize ecology is necessarily to contend with excess, whether that be in the form of unceasing material production or in the forms of social and theoretical remainders. In order to grapple with the excess of agencies at work in the more-than-human world, contemporary theories of ecology often appeal to tropes of darkness, “chthonic ones,” monsters, and ghosts (Morton, 2016; Haraway, 2016; Tsing, Swanson, Gan, and Bubandt, 2017). By betraying a sense of wonder, these tropes attest to our phenomenological, affective, and discursive bewilderment in the face of what is unknowable and seek to account for that excess by distributing agency beyond the epistemological frameworks of “the human.”
