CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Accumulation and Excess

 

Accumulation and excess are rich, polymorphic concepts that can speak to local and global histories, radical filmmaking traditions and other poetic acts of defiance, or even the basic sensory schemata through which we experience our social and aesthetic environments. We seek to experiment openly with the articulation and intersection of these terms, as we examine how they are mediated, developed, and problematized by film, television, and other audiovisual forms.

We invite article submissions for a special topics issue of Women in French Studies (2024) to explore work created by confined women and work that represents confined women, from the early modern period to the present-day.

How have confined women been represented in literature, film and art? What kind of thinking or writing is produced by women out of conditions of confinement? What are the impacts of confinement on creative production? How does physical confinement change how we consume texts?

We remember the grip of cool morning air around us as we waited for school in the morning. We still flinch when we see the silhouettes of the seagulls that stole our food, and inhale deeply when we catch the scent of fresh cut grass on the breeze. We all have favorite places, and locations that draw up memories every time we pass. Every place has its own things that make it special, and its own way that it fuels the lives and imaginations of those who live nearby.

Medieval and Renaissance Symposium 2022

Monday, May 30, 2022 - 10:36am
University of Lodz, Poland
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 31, 2022

The sixth MARS symposium looks towards a re-consideration of medieval and Renaissance genres of literature, with an emphasis on problematic or borderline cases where a given text belonging to a particular genre is questionable, or where problems are caused by various interpretations or definitions of the genre itself. Those genres can be roughly divided into two groups. One of them would consist of the genres that are often associated with the long period extending approximately between the years 700 and 1700, even though not all of them originate from that epoch, or are limited by it.

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work interrogates how some labor is denigrated and yet simultaneously supportive of the formation of the capitalistic markets upon which European nations expanded empires. By focusing on how these patriarchal societies see specific types of work as gendered, this edition explores how the gendering of labor establishes dynamic markets as either culturally sanctioned or illegitimate and, in turn, grapples with how cultural approbation undergirds economic growth.

updated:

Thursday, June 30, 2022

The aim of this conference is to situate the rise of the Far-Right in conjunction with academic spaces and practices i.e., to understand the macroscopic role Academia has in producing, challenging, and responding to the proliferation of this adaptive ideology. How do scholarly practices and the Far-right interact? How do Far-right governments impact Academia, both nationally and globally? Why are Academia’s responses to and/or co-options by the Far-right so culturally impactful?
