Dis/Orientations and Dis/Entanglements in Contemporary Literature and Culture: An International Conference

updated: 
Tuesday, April 12, 2022 - 3:17pm
University of Málaga (Spain)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 22, 2022

Under the auspices of the project ‘Orientation’: A Dynamic Perspective of Contemporary Fiction and Culture (1990-onwards) (Ref. FFI2017-86417-P), this Conference explores how the concept of ‘orientation’ can offer a renewed perspective on literary texts and cultural products alike. By positioning ‘orientation’ in close relation to (multiple) temporalities (or “polytemporality”, following Victoria Browne), space, and recognition of the ‘other’, this Conference (and the project) addresses the dynamic and fluid nature of today’s fiction and culture in English. As Sara Ahmed points out, “[o]rientations are about the direction we take that puts some things and not others in our reach” (56).

SUMMER SCHOOL 2022 »TACET AD LIBITUM! TOWARDS A POETICS AND POLITICS OF SILENCE« 24-29 JULY 2022 (Deadline: 1 May 2022)

Silence (tacere or Schweigen) has been considered by Franz Rosenzweig among others as a subversive act or defiant stance of the tragic hero against overwhelming power mechanisms of necessity, i.e., totalization and universality. It has also, however, been regarded as an epiphenomenon (or a result) of marginalization and oppression by postcolonial theorists. The latters’ understanding marks silence as an end, a potential violent effect of the logics of exclusion and marginalization by “signifying machines”. The former understanding marks silence as a means of rendering mechanisms of powers inoperative.

A burgeoning professional literature attests to the rewards and challenges of teaching comics and teaching with comics (for recent examples, see Wallner, Framing Education, 2019; Parker, Teaching Artfully, 2021; the forthcoming Smyth, Teaching with Comics and Graphic Novels, 2022; and the authoritative anthology With Great Power Comes Great Pedagogy, eds. Kirtley, Garcia, and Carlson, 2020).

In response to that literature, as well as the challenges of remote learning under COVID, this panel invites succinct 15-minute presentations that address the questions, What is it like to relearn the teaching of comics? and How can comics teachers reframe crisis as opportunity?

GCRR Press is inviting papers for a themed article collection relating to the New Testament Gospel of John for inclusion in a proposed scholarly anthology in the field of Jewish Studies. Topics should explore the Fourth Gospel in regard to its representation, depiction, and treatment of "the Jews" in the Fourth Gospel. By exploring this topic across time and place, this collection aims to provide an historical context for understanding not only the Jewish Jesus but the specific framework in which Johannine Christianity was tied intrinsically to ancient Judaism, while simultaneously distancing itself of Jewish thought and culture.

PAMLA 2022: Open Educational Resources (OER) in the French and Francophone Classroom (roundtable)

The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) has grown steadily due to the rising cost of textbooks and the unstable financial situations of students, further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the relevance and authenticity of conventionally published materials is often called into question. As a result, instructors increasingly turn to OER to meet these needs.

Morality and Anglo-American Modernism

In the years leading up to the publication of The Waste Land, T. S. Eliot decried what he called the moral cowardice endemic to post-war London, and particularly to its literary circles.  D. H. Lawrence was similarly preoccupied with morality in his literary critical essays, writing, for example, that "Morality in the novel is the trembling instablity of the balance [between opposing forces].  When the novelist puts his thumb in the scale, to pull down the balance to his own predilection, that is immorality."  And, finally, Hemingway once suggested to a group of professors that of all his novels, the best to teach is The Sun Also Rises because, he said, it is a "very moral novel."

The global pandemic and long periods of self-quarantine shifted everything from work habits, to school, to media consumption, and more.

 

For example, the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought families together and even provided a supportive space for on-line memorial services.

 

Zoom parties became a new way of coming together, as did streaming watch parties.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 8, 2022

“We are not essential. We are sacrificial.” With this statement, Sujatha Gidla, a subway conductor in New York City compelled back to work during the COVID-19 pandemic, observes that service workers who have been defined by their disposability constitute a bedrock for racial capitalism in an era of proliferating crises. We invite submissions to a special issue of Post45 that will turn to aesthetic and cultural mediations of service in the late 20th and early 21st century in order to theorize and historicize the relations between death, labor, and racial capitalism.
