Sneaker Studies: A Call for Papers

Sneakers have constituted one of the most significant cultural phenomena in recent history, and yet they have not garnered sustained attention by scholars of humanities and cultural studies. This project, an online sneaker archive will consider how specific shoes have become icons of their historical eras. This is a second call for papers this time with a more focused question.  We are interested in studies of specific athletes as pitchmen and their changing relationship with signature shoes or shoe lines.

The goal of this seminar is to provide a forum in which to discuss how TV shows (reality shows, true crime shows, documentary broadcasts, docufictions, and web series) bridge the gap between factual knowledge and myths, and how it facilitates the transfer of ordinary knowledge into the implausible, especially in Iberia and Latin America. Entertainment business and journalism intertwine to engage an audience oriented to the consumption of serialized narratives.

Human-Plant Entanglement: Thinking with Plants in the Anthropocene

Wednesday, November 30, 2022

The human and plant relationship stretches back to the earliest of times, arguably 20,000 years ago when the prehistoric hunter-gatherers had not quite learned to domesticate the wild vegetal species that grew around them. Learning to domesticate the plants for their own use was a decisive moment that changed humans into an agricultural unit and left the promise of a quantum leap in human history. Indeed, for the last twenty millennia, humans and plants have co-evolved in such diverse but intimate ways that the history of one would be unthinkable without the history of the other.

Conspiratorial Pedagogy: How to Teach about Conspiracy Theories

We live in a golden age of conspiracies. From relatively innocuous conspiracies such as Area 51 or the Denver International Airport to more dangerous conspiracies such as QAnon or vaccines with microchips, conspiracy theories are pervasive in our culture. We have seen conspiracy theories lead to domestic terrorism in the past several years, including the January 6th Insurrection. As instructors who teach critical thinking and critical literacy, it is necessary for us to engage with conspiracy theories—since our students are encountering them on social media, on the internet, and, often, in their homes.

Bataille Now: A transdisciplinary conference on the contemporary application of Georges Bataille’s thought

Georges Bataille’s work, a century after his texts were first published, has always been vested in controversy. Initially exiled from academic discourse and confined to titillating the imaginations of land-deprived sailors, Georges Bataille’s textual corpus has become the reluctant womb of post-modernity. Bataille’s influence can be found in a milieu of key thinkers from Foucault and Deleuze onto Giorgio Agamben and Jean Baudrillard.

Contagions and Non-Human Animals: (Re)Viewing Disregarded Species in Real and Imagined Pandemics

Due to the pandemic and a personal issue that delayed publication, this CFP from late 2020 is being reopened. I am looking for 3 to 4 essays to add to what I have. Below is the premise for the volume.

--

The impact of the pandemic and the threat that it poses to future human experiences has been well-documented. However, now that non-human animals are possible carriers and becoming infected, their experiences, while often overlooked, are nevertheless integrated into the worldwide pandemic.
