Delineations of apocalyptic non/alternative futures have been popular in the comic mode, irrespective of the approach to the formalistic manifestation: manga, graphic narratives, visual novels and so on. In the 20th century, wherein humanity has been torn apart by repeated belligerences of modern warfare and violence, doomsday sagas have garnered sustained attention; whether it is MARVEL’s ‘Apocalypse’, or the cyclopean ‘mecha’ robots of anime. The recent pandemic perhaps has augmented the darker side of imagination. However, the objective of the proposed volume is not to further the extant discourse of the cyberpunkish, post-apocalyptic dystopia.

FAME: “Absence and Death are much alike”

Fame is a report that travells far, and Many times lives long, and The older it groweth, The more it florishes, and is The more particularly a mans own…

RSA 2025: Laboring writers in the early modern world

N/A
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 15, 2024

We are seeking papers for a panel at RSA 2025 in Boston that address laboring writers--not so much writing as labor, but writers whose primary identity is as a laborer, peasant, artisan, or craftsperson from any geographic region. Such writers are often neglected in favor of courtiers and their clients. Indeed, some of how we conceive of “the literary” today is informed by the tastes of the ruling elite of the early modern period. This panel thus aims to recover non-elite voices of the past.

Tracing its roots to a long history of philosophical discourse, identity stands as one of the most intricate and ubiquitous concepts within the large debates of human and social sciences. It is taken for granted in everyday life and assumed to be an all-inclusive determinant of empirical and virtual entities; yet, obscure when it comes to marking out its essence as a referential determinant and delineating the shaping politics of its concretizations. The ambiguity and paradox of identity stem from the contradictory dimensions it encompasses, entailing at the same time a sense of similitude yet difference, uniqueness yet commonness, and independence yet reliance.

Since the Modern age, democracy stands as the characteristic Western form of government. We cannot consider such a political regime as just one among other possible ways of understanding the organization of power. Rather, it is the accomplishment of a certain culture and a certain anthropological vision. As a matter of fact, in its multifaceted variants, democracy is the most evident outcome of modern political thought, rooted in the theoretical bedrock of the natural law doctrine.

Not being seen for who one is has always been a problem in society; conversely, having difficulty seeing what is hidden beneath surface appearance is a constant challenge. This traditional session will explore how characters’ identities are both concealed and revealed in literature, television, and film. A variety of approaches are possible, including (but not limited to) the questions that follow: When/why do characters find it difficult to let themselves be seen for who they are? When do plots rely on a character’s mysterious identity, and how do both characters in the story and the audience discover (some) of the hidden truths?

Lost and Found in the Long Eighteenth Century

This CFP is a call for essays for a forthcoming edited collection.

Consent is often deemed a prerequisite to ethical interactions—particularly sexual ones. A nonconsensual act is viewed as an affront, a violation, an oppression. For an act to seem permissible, one requires what Heidi M. Hurd calls the “moral magic” of consent.
