Thinking Beyond Resilience: Indigenous (Hi)Stories of Continuity and Futurity

Etymologically, the term “resilience”--from the Latin re- and salire, “to leap in return”--refers to the capability of a thing, in response to some stimulus, to return to its original form or state. The term connotes a dual activity, simultaneously an undoing and a rebuilding. But in Indigenous contexts, under the realities of settler-colonialism, the aspiration to “return to original form” is a fraught enterprise, as it inevitably encounters the romanticized conceptual dichotomies of traditional / modern, sedentary / nomadic, cultural / political, and historical / mythical.

NeMLA 2023—Affectively Tuning into Daily Experiences of Energy and Natural Resource Extraction in the Americas

updated: 
Wednesday, August 10, 2022 - 9:33am
Alex Tough, University of Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Streaming a movie. Waiting in line for gas. Drinking a tall glass of water. These are day-to-day experiences that rely on forms of energy and natural resource extraction that are often hidden in plain view, entangled with dynamics of colonialism, transnational flows, digital assemblages, stock markets and neoliberalism. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly made these entanglements more felt. As such, we are tasked with unraveling these complex embodied and sensorial daily experiences of energy and extraction.

Transgressive Fiction Today

Wednesday, August 10, 2022 - 9:31am
Rebecca Warshofsky / Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

In the 1990s, transgressive fiction authors like Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, and Irvine Welsh shocked, disgusted, and offended audiences with their depictions of terrorizing, murdering, and drug-abusing characters whose bad behavior rejected and subverted the Western hegemony of neoliberalism. But their behavior was only seen as “shocking” or “transgressive” because of its blatant opposition to the dominant paradigm. What does it mean to transgress norms, boundaries, and conventions in today’s post-9/11 world, when the paradigms of whiteness, masculinity, heteronormativity, etc. are not necessarily viewed as the ultimate gatekeepers of what is normal, standard, correct, or expected?

Loving Dystopia
A Global Interdisciplinary Conference

Friday 17th March 2023 - Saturday 18th March 2023
Prague, Czech Republic

Literally the opposite of utopia, or ‘perfect place,’ the term dystopia was coined in the mid-19th century and has been used to both critique laws, policies and actions by those in power, and to describe states of being.

A dystopian society is generally seen as an imagined state of existence or an imagined society, characterized by gross imbalances of power, injustice, cruelty, suffering and hopelessness, with either totalitarian or nonexistent — or at least invisible — and always unethical forms of government.

The End of Life Experience: 4th Global Interdisciplinary Conference

updated: 
Tuesday, August 9, 2022 - 9:57am
Progressive Connexions
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 16, 2022

This inclusive interdisciplinary conference explores dying and death and the ways culture impacts care for the dying, the overall experience of dying and ways the dead are remembered. Over the past four decades, scholarship in thanatology and palliative care has increased dramatically. Our conversations seek a broad array of perspectives that explore, analyse, and/or interpret the myriad interrelations and interactions that exist between death and culture. Culture not only presents and portrays ideas about “a good death” and norms that seek to achieve it, it also operates as both a vehicle and medium through which meaning about death is communicated and understood. Sadly, too, culture sometimes facilitates death through violence.

Call for Chapter Proposals: New Perspectives on the Metal Gear Solid Series (edited collection)

 

Editors: Steven Kielich (University at Buffalo) and Chris Hall (University of the Ozarks)

 

In 2015, Hideo Kojima and his company Kojima Productions split from Konami after the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Kojima’s departure from Konami marked an unfortunate, but understandable, end to the Metal Gear Solid series. Now, in this “post-Phantom Pain” era, it has become both possible and essential to make a retrospective study of the critically, commercially, and culturally resonant series that was Metal Gear Solid.
