In humanities and social sciences, engagements with memory cut across disparate fields from the cognitive, and affective processes of recollection to the narrative and aesthetic acts of simulation and reinterpretation in both private and public spheres. In recent times embodied and somatic histories are widely discussed while documenting the past through registers such as trauma or nostalgia, where memory once again comes to the forefront. Memory and its fraught negotiations between past, present and future, between remembering and forgetting, become a crucial site of contestations and reimaginings of personal and collective subjectivities.

Research on the premodern intersection of race, gender, and sexuality has steadily increased as a result of the efforts of a diverse group of scholars working across traditional periodization and geographic limits. Nevertheless, a great deal of work remains to be done to understand the many varieties of ways such aspects of identities intersected and were mobilized or challenged in the marking of difference.

The theme of environmental crisis has been present in the public debate for several decades, and forcefully resurfaced in 2015 when the 2030 Agenda containing the goals of sustainable development was launched, including the preservation of all forms of life, the struggle against global warming and the production of clean and renewable energy. In the same year, the publication of the papal encyclical Laudato si’ on “integral ecology” and the conclusion of the Paris agreements on climate change also prompted debate on this theme. Throughout the years, environmental issues have progressively permeated the realm of scientific research as well.

Call for Papers — Blackboxed Futures: Multiple Temporalities of Algorithmic Technologies (Online Symposium)

Higher School of Economics, Moscow

Sunday, February 20, 2022

Algorithmic technologies are nowadays proliferating in various sectors of the economy and, more generally, in society. Yet, while their widespread development already occupies several areas of contemporary life, their material configuration often remains opaque and difficult to comprehend, especially when it comes to how algorithms shape the futures of people and societies at large. Often, algorithms and AI technologies are conceived by their users and creators as “magic” that is beyond comprehension — an understanding that has a range of political and cultural implications for society (Campolo & Crawford, 2020) and has been consequently recognized in the theorizations of economy and politics (Pignarre & Stengers, 2012).

Critical reflections on pandemic politics: left-wing, feminist and anti-racist critiques

As various formats of lockdown to contain the Covid-19 virus in many nations across the world continue into their second year, there is an urgent need to critically analyze this situation and its historical backdrop from more traditionally left-oriented perspectives. This urgent need is likewise required in light of the more recent global vaccine rollouts and various digital health pass mandates that have followed as a supposed ‘way out’ of the lockdown logic. Such lockdowns, health pass mandates, and blanket vaccine rollouts clearly attempt to posit some kind of ‘public good’ or ‘solidarity’ over more individualist considerations; sentiments which on the surface appear to be benevolent and even left-oriented.

Configurations of Friday’s Body

A Special Issue of the Nordic Journal of English Studies

Ed. by Patrick Gill and Jakub Lipski

When Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe was published in 1719, it confronted readers with a newly developed realism expressed, among other things, through the detailed description of its characters’ worlds and bodies. The connection between mind and body or physical and spiritual world was more than allegorical to eighteenth-century readers: it represented a literal and immediate correspondence, so that discourses of the body in much eighteenth-century fiction can be read as material figurations of character.

CFP:Dark Academia: Definitions, Theories, and Prospects

updated: 
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 9:50am
Cody Jones-- NYU
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

We are seeking essays and papers for an edited collection which engages the concept of ‘dark academia.’ 

At the center of the dark academic sensibility lies a paradox: though dark academia enjoys the cosmetic trappings of the pursuit of higher knowledge, it is at its core a celebration of the university as a place of occultation and performativity. The dark academic’s taste for mystery, history, and a distinctly Anglophone, Romantico-Modernist canon – coupled with an equally distinct early 20th century sartorial and lifestyle model – runs inevitably into exclusivity, elitism, and reactionary nostalgia. Indeed, the case can be made that these very elements are in fact constitutive of dark academia, as such.
