This seminar reevaluates both the Aristotelian notion of peripety and alternative approaches in global literary theory to describe a moment of abrupt change or reversal of action. In doing so, it applies a clearly defined focus on such examples that bring turning points together with an insecure, potentially dangerous medium: water.

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.

Craft Critique Culture Graduate Student Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 14, 2022

CRAFT CRITIQUE CULTURE is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on the intersections of critical and creative approaches to writing, both within and beyond the academy. This year’s conference recognizes the spatial and temporal context within and beyond a written text. Within the text, we examine what has been mapped by the margins as well as the communities that have been marginalized by the borders of the page. Here, margins refer to the open spaces on the page — not inhabited by words, punctuation, ornamentation, etc. This year’s conference begins at the margins: whether it be the page, the camera lens, the pictorial frame, the margins of philosophy, the undercommons of the university, the peripheries of the city....margins are everywhere.

As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report concludes, our planet’s landscapes are rapidly undergoing drastic short-term transformative changes due to anthropogenic factors. The wholesale thawing of Arctic permafrost stands to exacerbate planetary warming to runaway levels (p. 1270); droughts in arid areas are massively exacerbated by agricultural activity (p. 1984); greenhouse gas emissions disrupt natural weather systems so greatly that new microclimates emerge (p. 3514); ocean acidification threatens the viability of aquatic ecosystems (p. 1200); biodiversity is in rapid decline around the globe (p. 211); sea level rise will reclaim vast areas of low-lying land (p.

Hotels & Crisis: Historical and Cultural Perspectives

25-26 June 2022

London, UK

Scholars exploring histories and stories of hotels have identified many ways in which they have been actively embroiled within civil conflicts. They are sites of violence and of refuge. They are communication and command centres. They are also sites for diplomacy which aims to bring conflict to an end. Hotels have often been ‘soft’ targets in conflicts, because of their high level of openness compared to other institutions. Potent symbolisms and distinctive affordances have made hotels significant shapers of conflict.

Migration is one of the most prominent cultural, socio-political, and economic questions of our time. In both industrialised and less developed countries, it would be hard to find people who do not have a personal experience of migration and its effects, which ultimately ‘become the hallmark of the age of migration’ (Castles et al., 2013). According to the World Migration Report 2020, international migrants consist of only 3.6% (281 million) of the world population, and they make ‘significant sociocultural, civic-political and economic contributions in origin and destination countries and community’ (WMR, 2020). However, a great majority of people do not migrate across borders; instead, a large number of people migrate within countries.

Transgender representation is currently at an all-time high. Whether it be in cinema, literature, or social networks, the visibility of trans individuals has tremendously increased. ​Changes in culture have allowed the transgender community to feel safer in coming forward with their stories, and therefore, this new movement has been pioneered by trans women, trans men, and non-binary individuals. For example, Lexie, the trans woman behind the ​popular Instagram account Agressively Trans (@aggressively_trans), published the book Une histoire de genres in February 2021. Petite fille, a 2020 documentary directed by Sébastien Lifshitz has won several prizes in various festivals.

Cinema at International Film Festivals : A virtual conference 7-11 December 2021

Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 9:49am

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 20, 2021

The virtual conference explores  how contemporary cinema negotiates the spaces at international film festivals. Our scope includes contemporary cinema from different parts of the world, including India and non-English speaking countries. The growing presence and proliferation of film festivals in their varied manifestations leads us to posit: What is the nature of contemporary transnational cinema that is attracting international attention? How does  this intersection play out in global reception, marketing, exhibition and  distribution? What kinds of academic and theoretical interventions can emerge from this development?

In recent decades, the practice of collaborative intellectual labor has had an unexpected resurgence, both among writers and artists, and within scholarly and academic spaces. Drawing on a rich history of intellectual, activist, and artistic practices of collaboration, new collectives and research groups have embraced collaborative forms of knowledge production to challenge the individualization of intellectual labor and the demands of the neoliberal episteme.

(ACLA 2022) The Elemental and The Formless

updated: 
Saturday, October 9, 2021 - 3:44pm
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.
