ABOUT CONFERENCE: Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.

Seeking discussants for the roundtable “Theory and Scholarship” on Diversity and Inclusion at the Nineteenth-Century Studies Association (NCSA) virtual conference on March 13, 2021 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. Pacific Standard Time. The panel co-chairs invite discussants from a wide variety of fields working on nineteenth-century research that speaks to issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion or “undisciplining” Victorian studies. The co-chairs will ask discussants to answer a series of four questions (included below). The discussants will have 10 minutes to chat amongst themselves for each question. We will then open it up so the audience can discuss these topics or the participants and audience could converse together in an inclusive conversation.

MLA 2022 in Washington DC (hopefully!)

 

Poe scholars and Poe aficionados are always talking about Poe and always reading and rereading his works. He is ubiquitous—in print, film, popular culture, and all over the internet. His online presence increased even more in the late winter and early spring of 2020 as the world wrestled with the COVID-19 pandemic. For those of us who teach Poe and those of us who write about him, doing so in 2020 and 2021 seems more timely than ever, but it also feels different.

Posthuman Drag (Edited Collection)

Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."

Fairies: A Companion

Stories about fairies and the fae have long populated the imagination of many cultures around the world. Fairy histories have been the focus of much scholarly debate, and so has the figure of the fairy as a cultural icon.

Fairies and the fae have also gained a noticeable importance in the 21st century, bringing with them an increased cultural focus on traditional beliefs and indigenous identities. Indeed, while the connection to the folkloristic and the literary remains strong—with the multiple re-incarnations Tinkerbell from Peter Pan taking centerstage here—fairies have also found renewed life in modern and contemporary re-imaginings.

Gender, Violence, and the State in Contemporary Speculative Fiction

Wednesday, March 31, 2021

From its beginnings, speculative fiction across different media and genres has combined imaginaries of social and political organization with issues of gender and violence. Thomas More’s Utopia (1551), for example, imagined an egalitarian society that remained strictly patriarchal and a perfect government that ensured prosperity and peace by fighting preventive wars, administering capital punishment to adulterers, endorsing corporal punishment for unruly women and children, and encouraging (assisted) suicide. Whether we consider literary texts, film, TV series, comics, or other forms of cultural expression, contemporary speculative fiction continues to discuss (state-)violence and the gendered nature of socio-political relations.

In line with the 2022 Modern Language Association conference (6-9 January) theme of “Multilingualism”, this proposed special session invites papers that unthink literacies as they are represented in contemporary literature and culture, interrogates the enumerative approach towards languages that is seemingly implied in multi-lingualism, and the treatment of languages as discrete and distinct formations.
