ACLA Montreal 2024: Between Deleuze and Literature: Imagining Literature’s Images of Thought

updated: 
Monday, September 18, 2023 - 3:52pm
American Comparative Literature Association Annual Meeting
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

Deleuze notes in Negotiations that he did not have the chance to write “the book [he’d] like to have done about literature” (143) as he had done for other artforms like cinema and painting. Following Deleuze and Guattari’s definition of great thinkers who “lay out a new plane of immanence” and “draw up a new image of thought” to “change how we think” (What Is Philosophy 51), this seminar takes up Deleuze’s desire for new images of thought focused explicitly on literature. This seminar invites participants to consider the relation between Deleuze and Guattari’s philosophy and commentary on art (e.g., painting, cinema, and literature) and a variety of literary writers to establish new ways of thinking and navigating within literature.

Shirley Geok-lin Lim claimed, “My Westernization took place in my body.” This panel seeks to theorize the female Korean American body as a racialized and excluded site--a biopolitical site for trauma and haunting. More specifically, we seek to investigate representations of Korean women’s bodies in Korean/Korean American women’s writing and how these representations come to embody fidelity, disloyalty, and/or negotiate multiple affiliations and the movement between allegiances.

As such, this panel asks:

How is the Korean female figure situated between Westernization/Americanization and Asian alliances?

Cinema arrived with a train approaching the platform with such speed that the audience jumped off their seats. So it goes in film history, as Martin Loiperdinger points out in "Cinema's Founding Myth" (2004), with the account of the public screening of the Lumiere brothers' The Arrival of the Train at La Ciotat from 1896. And with the introduction of psychoanalysis and structural linguistics in film theory by for example Raymond Bellour in The Analysis of Film (1979: 182), so the train metaphor for sex in film lives on.

Reading the World Computer: Assessing Meaning Making and the Tell-Tale Gender of Artificial Intelligence

Saturday, September 30, 2023

Any philosophical consideration of the current zeitgeist requires an assessment of the quasi-object ( Latour 1993) constellation of Artificial Intelligence and its affordances without giving in to either knee-jerk optimism or unchanneled pessimism. For if doomsday was indeed near (as social media discourses want us to believe), and human labour progressively redundant to the machinations of human-made artificial intelligence, what is the limit case scenario, which makes such a provocation real, tangible and material beyond fatalistic projections of obsolescence? How does that reconfigure the idea of the Human as both the object and subject of cybernetic capital?

Update: CFP - Re-engaging with the Old Myths: Contemporary Literature, Women, and Classics at NEMLA 2024

Northeast Modern Language Association Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

Novels and literary works that adapt Classical figures and text continue to be very popular, such as Natalie Haynes’s A Thousand Ships, Pat Barker’s The Silence of the Girls and The Women of Troy, Madeline Miller’s Circe, Ali Smith’s Girl Meets Boy, and others demonstrate. Many of these retellings focus on Classical women, putting these characters at the center of the narratives. These relatively recent works show one way in which the Classical tradition can still be relevant, especially as it adapts to and includes new histories, viewpoints, and situations.

Teaching While Anxious: The Pedagogy of Anxiety in 2024

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

In a 2019 special issue of Pedagogy, Shawna Ross and Douglass Dowland coined the term “Anxious Pedagogies” to encourage approaches that would theorize the complex functions of anxiety in the classroom.  Ross and Dowland posit the composition classroom as “a site of a seldom-described but sensorially palpable risk for both student and instructor” (510).  Today, in the wake of a pandemic and skyrocketing rates of student and instructor anxiety, the humanities classroom has become an even riskier space in many ways, as global, local, political, and discipline-specific factors pose ever more explicit threats to the process of teaching and learning.

Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.

Migration has been a constant feature of human history – “homo migrans” have existed ever since “homo sapiens”. Recently the themes of migration and integration have been especially topical in Europe and in other parts of the world due to massive and ever-growing movement of population. These spreading in-flows of immigrants have a strong impact on the social, economic and political climate of host countries, which are often highly challenged by the growing numbers and, therefore, have to review their immigration and integration policies to adjust to the contemporary processes of globalization. Integration is becoming more and more important at the time when migration is steadily growing and diversifying and is undergoing profound changes.
