Living Enclosures

Stony Brook University 36th Annual English Graduate Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 26, 2024

Enclosure is as much origin-story as it is globally contested condition. Critical accounts positioning the act of enclosure as integral to the root-systems of global capitalism, environmental catastrophe and precarity often refer to the historical effort by landowners to do away with the commons in favor of legally and politically recognized enclosures. Transforming sustainable agricultural practices into sites of energy-production primed for capital development, the early-modern enclosure movement gave rise to what Robert P. Marzec characterizes as “a model of the human that took as its direct enemy an environment thought to be threatening because it had yet to be properly secured, privatized, and cultivated” (18).

Bridge Between Japanese Popular Culture and Language Teaching - Deadline Extended to 01/20/2024

It has been challenging to maintain healthy enrollments in Japanese language courses at all college levels in the U.S. Although this problem is more serious in small liberal-arts colleges, state universities also have the same problem especially in their advanced Japanese courses. If we think about the prevalence of Japanese popular cultural products such as anime, manga, music, games, V-tubers, and traditional artifacts among college students in the United States, we cannot easily understand why the number of students who learn Japanese has been decreasing in many institutions.

“Exploring the Anthropocene in Literature”

Friday, December 22, 2023

The Anthropocene refers to a proposed epoch that recognizes the significant and lasting impact of human activities on the Earth's geology and ecosystems. This concept has gained prominence in discussions about environmental change and serves as a framework for understanding the profound alterations humans have made to the planet. Postcolonial perspectives often highlight the role of colonial powers in exploiting natural resources from colonized territories. The Anthropocene can be seen as an extension of this historical exploitation, with the environmental consequences affecting not only the colonized regions but the entire planet.

In 1949, James Playstead Wood described the Saturday Evening Post as “seen and read everywhere. People came to know it as they knew their own names. Its influence was pervasive and immeasurable, spreading simultaneously in many directions. . . . The Post became both a powerful and continuing social force and almost a sign and symbol of the country itself.” Under the editorship of George Horace Lorimer, and for many decades after, the Post was the most widely read U.S. magazine of its era. And yet the Post has been all but invisible in contemporary scholarship on print culture.
