Wednesday, August 31, 2022

With Disney’s initial apathetic response to the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill which recently passed in the state of Florida, it is time to shed light on Disney’s complex relationship with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Recently, there have been works which briefly discuss the relationship of queerness and Disney, such as Sean Griffin’s Tinker Bells and Evil Queens (2000), Melanie S. Kohnen Queer Representation, Visibility, and Race (2016), Jennifer Sandlin and Julie Garlen’s edited collection Disney, Culture, and Curriculum (2016), and Joseph Brennan’s edited collection Queerbaiting and Fandom (2019). However, the queer artist/contributor has yet to be the main topic of discussion.

Eco-anxiety and Spirituality in Literature Conference

UC Louvain
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 16, 2022

As the climate crisis accelerates, one response that contemporary authors take amidst the growing feelings of eco-anxiety is to narrate themes of religion and spirituality as a source of solace. Though there is no doubt that the theologies and practices of western patriarchal religions have created systems of harm and contributed to the climate crisis (Lynn White Jr), contemporary authors are reclaiming the spiritual practices and mystic traditions of such religions in order to imagine narratives in which restorative relationships between the human and the more-than-human world are negotiated. Scholars such as Benedicte Meillon have begun to explore how the ecopoetics of re-enchantment can help us understand (non)human nature cultures.

Utopias and (their opposite) dystopias arise from the urge to describe a possible world, a hard-to-come-true probability. Therefore, they either promise good news or foreshadow a warning for the future, depending on the benign or malign nature of the urge.

Representing Disability in Literature, Film, and Television in Hispanic Cultures (NeMLA 2023 Roundtable)

54th NeMLA Annual Convention, March 23-26, 2023 in Niagara Falls, New York

While representations of disability can be found across creative fields throughout history, their study and sociopolitical implications in society’s popular imaginary only started gaining traction in the 1990s, namely in the United States and United Kingdom. Since then, pioneering scholarly work has paved the way for further critical attention to a reality that has been often instrumentalized to 1) advance ableist notions of “normalcy” through what Sally Chivers and Nicole Markotić (2010) term the “problem body;” and 2) to exclude from the social realm those who deviate from the established able-bodied norms. 

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

updated: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022 - 6:36am
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 25, 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.
