“Hurricane Katrina at 20: Rethinking the Literary and Cultural Legacies of the Storm” 

 Guest Editors, Courtney George and Judith Livingston (Columbus State University)

On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall on the Gulf Coast with catastrophic results for the surrounding communities, which are still recovering today. Almost immediately, journalists, artists, and scholars began producing significant work about Katrina—work that has continued, especially as we begin to view the disaster and its circumstances in the context of our current social justice and climate-related struggles.

Submission Deadline: September 30, 2023, at: https://cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/20713

 

Abstract

While life in the academy often precludes acknowledging one’s own personal and familial life histories and experiences, generative and embodied scholarship in the humanities requires a thorough reckoning with our positionality and intersectionality. In this creative session, participants traverse from the personal to the professional by paying homage to the roots that lead to routes.

These articles may focus on YA series romance from any historical period or language context, and may derive from any relevant discipline, including interdisciplinary approaches.

The Will before Psychoanalysis

Co-organizers: Andrea Gadberry and Gerard Passannante

Long before the emergence of a conceptual vocabulary that named the unconscious and its wishes—that adumbrated a modern subject’s desires, repetitions, and obsessions—there was a robust conversation about the faculty of the will: its powers, its vulnerabilities, their sources, and their bearing on experience. This seminar investigates willed and unwilled experiences across habits of feeling, vicissitudes in thought, and activities of the soul in literary and philosophical works prior to the advent of psychoanalysis.

Podcasting Culture: Re-inventing Audio Storytelling

Gramma: Journal of Theory and Criticism

Sunday, October 15, 2023

In a world saturated with images in which audiovisual storytelling has dominated for decades shaping the aesthetics and expectations of the audience, and in which binge-consuming TV series on digital platforms and homemade videos on social media have become the trend of the last few years, it is quite unexpected to witness the reemergence of a storytelling that resists visual representation.  Of course, audio storytelling is not new; Stories voiced for the ear to listen have been with us since early on, for as long as there have been stories to share. What has changed in recent years, whetting our story-listening appetite anew, are the computing technologies ever rapidly developed for audio production, distribution and reception.

Organizer: Rebecca Kosick

Co-Organizer: Nathan Taylor

Poetry has exploded off the page in recent decades, making a prominent home for itself in new semiotic and material environments. Poems circulate on subway systems, through platforms and apps, on placards at protests, in art museums, and the built environment. These poems, in turn, are composed in a variety of human and nonhuman languages, from Spanglish to mathematics, code to GPT-language models.
