The global pandemic and long periods of self-quarantine shifted everything from work habits, to school, to media consumption, and more.

 

For example, the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought families together and even provided a supportive space for on-line memorial services.

 

Zoom parties became a new way of coming together, as did streaming watch parties.

The heterogenous character of protean form of travel writing—letters, journals, logbooks, diaries, memoir, journalistic pieces, guidebooks, confessional narratives, accounts of seafaring voyages, literary picaresque narratives, scientific explorations, artists’ escapades, ventures of urban flâneurs, self-exiled wanderers, and fiction—resists easy demarcation. Its heterogeneity lies in the revisionary stance brought about in each narrative through the distinguishing figure of the traveller, mode of narration, means of mapping, or redefining of the landscape.

Legacies of Trauma: The Tragedy of Before and After

Iconography and Iconoclasm in Twentieth Century and Contemporary American Poetry

Tuesday, October 26, 2021 - 3:16pm
Southwest Popular / American Culture Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 28, 2021

From Langston Hughes’ "Goodbye, Christ" to Gertrude Stein’s "If I Told Him, A Completed Portrait of Picasso," Marie Howe’s Magdalene to Sarah Blake’s Mr. West, cultural icons feature prominently across American poetry from the past century to the present. Now that social media affords endless and immediate access to living icons’ homes, bodies, and vulnerabilities (especially during the COVID-19 pandemic), poetic treatments of icons might offer timely and incisive considerations of iconography in popular culture then and now. What makes us identify with, or feel alienated from, an iconic figure? What challenges exist in depicting realistic and relatable icons in a medium necessitating a degree of craft?

Sunday, October 31, 2021

In this seminar, we hope to rethink long-held associations between novel and nation-state in light of recent insights from oceanic studies, archipelagic studies, as well as transatlantic, transpacific, and Indian Ocean contexts. What kinds of genres and narrative frameworks unfold from a maritime, as opposed to land-based, perspective? How do novelists negotiate these commitments across multiple scales—and what ways of reading emerge by centering islands, coasts, ports, and other liminal spaces?

Edited volume: Narratives of Gendered Abuse in Academia

The popularity of the Netflix Series The Chair seems to be tied to its hyperbolic depictions of faintly legitimate power struggles that circulate on contemporary college campuses. But in focusing on the slapstick character Bill Dobson (male, white, hopelessly romantic), the narrative offers a political feint that distracts from actual abuses of power in academic life, abuses that are often misogynistic. While the #MeToo movement as a cultural, feminist, and antiracist force has been slowly and steadily uncovering and altering landscapes of gendered harassment and abuse across our society, academia itself as an abusive culture has remained fairly immune to these critiques.

(ACLA 2022) The Elemental and The Formless

Oliver Aas (Cornell University)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

This seminar departs from the idea that we need a clearer understanding of elemental forms—traditional and non-traditional—that are in different stages of becoming formless (loss, disappearance, transmutation etc.). On the one hand, we build up on the critical genealogy of the formless (l’informe), a concept once popularized by Bataille in the surrealist journal Documents (1929-30) and later taken up by Bataille’s readers, most famously by Rosalind Krauss & Yves-Alain Bois (1997) and Georges Didi-Huberman (1995). While, on the other hand, we also welcome proposals that conceptualize the formless through different disciplinary vantage points and bring it to bear on the question of elemental forms.

The Keats-Shelley Association of America (K-SAA) and Romantic Circles Pedagogy (RCP) Anti-Racist Pedagogy Colloquium is soliciting submissions for our new resource on anti-racist teaching, "Towards an Anti-Racist Pedagogy."

This webpage, which will be accessible through the K-SAA and RCP websites, will offer suggested readings, bibliographies of relevant scholarship, sample assignments and syllabi, and guides to use in the classroom. This project will be ongoing: our goal is that each year, a new cohort will develop and expand the resource.
