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.

Changes in Asian / Asian American Studies and Its Pedagogies (SAMLA 94 panel)

Since the emergence of Asian American Studies as an intellectual field of studies almost 60 years ago, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies has not only evolved as a whole but has also had to endure ongoing changes and readaptations. Now, perhaps more than ever, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies calls for new changes or perhaps even a new vision, to help us cope with the many living realities and meanings—whether racially, culturally, historically, or politically, just to name a few—on which we stand.

Panel for SAMLA 94: The Avant-Garde and Social Change

Wednesday, June 29, 2022

The term avant-garde usually applies to works of art, literature and music characterized by their radical experimentation and opposition to institutionalized culture. Leading unconventional and non-conformist lives, the avant-gardists antagonized the bourgeoise by attacking their social values, mediocrity and material interests. Instead, these iconoclastic artists engaged in acts of dissidence promoted in soirées, manifestos, journals and exhibits that interfered with public life. For instance, Marinetti paraded with the Suffragettes smashing windows through the streets of London, an act that echoes his fervor to destroy museums and academies, as described in the 1909 Futurist Manifesto.

SAMLA 94 ASLE Affiliated Session - The Plantationocene Past, Present, and Future

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:03pm
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 1, 2022

While the term “Anthropocene” is frequently used to describe the current geological era of human-created and accelerated climate change, multiple other terms have emerged as scholars expand their understanding of the interconnectedness of human endeavors and their consequences. A useful alternative is “Plantationocene,” which emphasizes the economization of life and places the foundations of global climate change within the intertwined plantation systems of the preceding centuries, including how they continue to be reproduced in new, nefarious ways in the present day. This session seeks presentations that take any aspect of the plantation and its enduring legacies as a starting point for interrogating literature.

The aftermath of societal and cultural traumas can be cause for growth, hope, change, and (r)evolution. The last two years have brought the world to such moments. Questions may arise such as: What is the role of Children’s and Young Adult Literature within and after such traumas? How do events such as war or pandemic cause reflection and change on societal, cultural, and/or individual levels? We seek papers that explore all aspects of Children’s and Young Adult Literature, as well as those addressing the conference theme of Post Now.

+++EXTENDED DEADLINE+++++Whether Poe was correct in asserting that “The death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world,” he certainly was correct in associating her demise, mythical or otherwise, with the generation of art.  This special session for PAMLA 2022 invites papers that consider the significance of representations of death in modern popular culture.  Papers may engage the following questions or consider the topic from other directions.  How does the gendered and raced association of death with femininity produce normative masculinity?  In what ways does the overdetermined association between women and mortality stabilize concepts of geography, including nation?  Can we even imagine “America” without the quoti
