Global Conference on Women and Gender

To be held in person March 16-18, 2023

This interdisciplinary conference on Women and Gender brings together participants from all academic fields to engage in wide-ranging conversations about education as a catalyst for freedom and transformation. Contributors are encouraged to consider education in the diversity of its forms, and how “traditional” and/or “alternative” models, both inside and outside of the classroom, intersect with the politics of gender. What are the social, economic, and intellectual consequences of denying women and marginalized communities access to education? Alternatively, how may education serve as an act of resistance to systems of oppression throughout the world?

Monday, October 31, 2022

In a germinal essay of literary study, W.J.T. Mitchell observes that the human, “for many philosophers both ancient and modern, is the “representational animal,” homo symbolicum, the creature whose distinctive character is the creation and manipulation of signs—things that “stand for” or “take the place of” something else.” And in the twenty-first century, representation—in its aesthetic, cultural, semiotic, political, and myriad other contemporary dimensions—is strategically deployed for its presumptive ability to carry the burden of material disparities produced along intersecting lines of difference.

CFP: Leeds International Medieval Congress, 3 – 6 July, 2023, “Networks and Entanglements”  

 

International Association for Robin Hood Studies Sponsored Session(s): “Outlaw Networks” 

 

Although they sometimes work alone, outlaws in history and literature always belong to a series of networks. They exist alongside, within or outside communities, and have groups of supporters, opponents and comrades.  Outlaw stories depend for their dissemination on networks and groups, and the stories themselves exist within groups of related narratives.  This session examines some of these networks, and the individuals and groups who inhabit them. Possible topics for this session may include the following: 

Crises and Turns: Continuities and Discontinuities in American Culture

Thursday, September 1, 2022

While it appears to be perennially tempting to see one’s own time as exceptional and unprecedented, it is nevertheless safe to say that our present time is perceived by many as characterized by crises of different kinds (democratic, humanitarian, environmental) to an unusually high degree. As a result, the stakes are high when it comes to identifying causes and cures and the political, media and academic communities are all concerned in their different ways with constructing narratives that make sense of what is happening: Backlash, renewal, apocalypse?

Textual-Sexual-Spiritual:Artistic Practice and Other Rituals as Queer Becoming and Beyond

Guest Editor: Dr. Jocelyn E. Marshall (Emerson College)

This issue of Rejoinder addresses the relationships between text/artwork, sexuality, and spirituality to navigate tensions of being and becoming. As E. L. McCallum and Mikko Tuhkanen have argued, the idea of ‘‘queer becoming” involves not only never “straightening up” and “flying right,” but also the possibility of “one’s becoming something other than queer” (2011, 10-11). How do our approaches to “becoming” allow us to cultivate community, extend work, shape praxis, guide pedagogy, and beyond?

Thursday, September 15, 2022

“That’s a Take”: The International Television Commercial as Short Film is a two-day, virtual conference that engages interdisciplinary scholarship from any critical/methodological perspective examining the international television commercial production as a short film narrative. As examined in Consuming Images: Film Art and the American Television Commercial (Edinburgh University Press, 2020) which established the complex vitality of the television commercial both as a short film and as an art form, the television commercial has an aesthetic and historical dynamic linking it directly to cinematic and media cultures.

In 2012, Saër Maty Bâ and Will Higbee published their necessary and urgent intervention, De-Westernizing Film Studies. The principle aim of their collection was to “consider what forms a challenge to the enduring vision of film as a medium – and film studies as a discipline – modelled on ‘Western’ ideologies, theoretical and historical frameworks, critical perspectives as well as institutional and artistic practices, might take today” (2012: 1).
