Diderot: Space and Movement

Newton and modern science, especially Mathematics and Physics, have completely changed the concepts of space and movement. Unlike other thinkers of that century, among whom Immanuel Kant stands for his remarkable thought, the new concepts of space and movement don’t seem to have influenced Diderot’s thinking effectively.

Rejoinder Call for Submissions -- Climate in Crisis

“Climate change,” as former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson so astutely notes, “requires a feminist solution.” Global heating is causing rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and the circulation of new pathogens. It impacts economically, socially, and politically marginalized people and communities most severely. Women and children, the majority of the world’s poor, are already disproportionately burdened by its effects. In the Global North, the climate breakdown compounds the environmental racism that many communities of color already experience.

ACLA 2021: Repurposing Enlightenment

updated: 
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 1:12pm
ACLA Seminar
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

The Enlightenment has long been understood as a break from past practices and traditions, as a period in which reason, science, progress, secularization were invented. Instead, we seek to understand the Enlightenment and the values identified with it not as rejections of the past or sudden revolutions in thought, but as reconsiderations of earlier ways of knowing. These instances of repurposing include both translations of older sources and traditional thought practices into new contexts as well as the proliferation, amplification, and replication of eighteenth-century ideas.

Imagining the 1980s: Representations of the Reagan Decade in Popular Culture - update

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Popular culture scholars often refer to a 40-year cycle of nostalgia, and so it is not surprising that there has been a recent wave of movies and television shows set in the 1980s.  The Netflix series Stranger Things, the film IT: Chapter One, the interactive film Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, and the ninth season of American Horror Story, titled “1984,” all provide prominent examples of recent texts that have used the semantic texture of the 1980s as a dramatic setting.  These examples of ’80s horror suggest a contemporary apprehension of an undercurrent of demonic violence that undergirds the glittering fads, suburban affluence, and Reaganite yuppieism associated with the 1980s, even as they suggest parallels between Re

Remainder from Epistemology: Exploring the Discursive Possibilities of Aporia

Man has not been able to describe himself as a configuration in the episteme without thought at the same time discovering, both in itself and outside itself, at the borders yet also in its very warp and woof, an element of darkness, an apparently inert density in which it is embedded, an unthought which it contains entirely, yet in which it is also caught.

FINAL WEEK: Race and Racism in an Age of Colorblindness

updated: 
Monday, October 26, 2020 - 12:34pm
Thomas Conners
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 30, 2020

This seminar centers the contemporary phenomenon of colorblindness to query how in times marked by police killings, Black Lives Matter activism, and the mass maiming of detained migrants, it is critical race theory that the Trump administration calls “divisive” and “un-American.” As critical race theorists Ian Haney López and Neil Gotanda respectively assert, legal colorblindness in a post-Civil Rights era renders racism “any and every use of race.” This colorblind stance “legitimates racial inequality and domination” by perpetuating a deadly contradiction between racist violence and race-free discourse.

Feminism in North East India: A Critical Exploration

Feminism has become the most controversial, most discussed and most contested subject in India’s current academic field. North East Indian feminism generally depended on Western feminism as well as Indian feminism frameworks. These two frameworks are diversely intricate from North-East India in term of race, class, caste, culture and religion, etc. Moreover, it is important to note that most Indian mainstream feminists are brought up in a specific cultural setting i.e. class, caste, religion etc. from various parts of India. ‘Indian feminist thought’ is a term that they coined through their own discourse.

Female Narratives of Protest: Literary and Cultural Representations from South Asia

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 1, 2021

Contemporary regimes of protest in South Asia are informed and injuncted by its ever shifting geopolitical modalities. With the rise of globalisation, neoliberalism and multiculturalism, South Asian geopolitics comprise a quest for redefinition of biopower and subjectivity formations. As hegemonies of Western  dominance are toppled, South Asian geopolitics are evolving as a complex assemblage of biopolitics, citizenship ethics and human rights concerns. In this evolving engagement with global politics, South Asia is fast emerging as a contending power itself with competent human and capital resources. An important consequence of this is the appearance of newer axes of fault lines in terms of polity, economy, religion, culture, art, and gender.

CONFERENCE ONLINEScientific Committee:Professor Wojciech Owczarski – University of Gdańsk, PolandProfessor Polina Golovátina-Mora - Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (Colombia) CFP: In our modern world, which some have argued to be disjointed while immersing itself ever deeper in crisis, the turning back towards “the olden days” and the ensuing nostalgia constitute a noticeable phenomenon, both individually (the memory of biography) and collectively (the memory of History). Another important – and seemingly also quite noticeable – phenomenon  is the longing for something vague, indefinite or never existent.     Hence, during our interdisciplinary conference we would like to concentrate on the phenomena of nostalgia and melancholy.

Stranger Forms: Translating the Unusual and Minor of Early Modernity (ACLA 2021)

updated: 
Thursday, October 22, 2020 - 11:38am
Laura Francis and Sara Stamatiades - Cornell University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

While canonical works like Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra’s Don Quixote have enjoyed rich histories of translation, minor texts rarely see as much activity. Even for famous authors, unusual forms may not see the light of day at all. Take Cervantes’ own entremeses, for example: a kind of theatrical interlude prevalent in Golden Age Spain, these short texts have attracted only a handful of translations compared to the Quixote’s hundreds. Carrying out the author’s own biting remark that he wrote dramatic pieces never to be dramatized, the lack of translation only reinforces the already problematic centering of canonical texts. Unavailability across languages ingrains the marginal status of other works and, with them, the marginal figures they represent.
