Critiquing Critique: Post-Critique, New Realisms, and Materialisms (ACLA 2021)

We inhabit a post-critical moment. In literary and cultural studies, the post-critical turn has yielded new modes of reading, while galvanizing new efforts to think beyond—challenging or perhaps circumventing altogether—the limits of critique. These efforts are not limited, however, to the fields of literary and cultural studies; they track suggestively with new tendencies in contemporary philosophy, namely “New Realism” and its polemic antagonism towards the (loosely branded) legacy of critical theory, which has arguably held a theoretical monopoly in spheres of the humanities not taken with the scientific worldview.

What are the major challenges to twenty-first-century flânerie?

Consider the effects of:

•          the Coronavirus pandemic (lockdowns, empty streets, social distancing, masked flâneurs/flâneuses);

•          the impediments to or dangers of urban strolling as a result of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, citizenship (and protesting such limitations as in the case of the Black Lives Matter and other social justice movements); 

•          the difficulties posed by environmental degradation in cities (air pollution, waste management and global waste trading, congestion and overcrowding);

We are a lively academic collective interested in investigating the articulation of the numerous and heterogeneous representations which have been constructing images of the US.

We’re also working to foster a stimulating space for early career researchers and postgraduate students in North American studies, thus we’ll warmly welcome their proposals as well.

This panel examines travel and emplacement in response to crises. Interruptions to normative modes of travel in the ongoing wake of COVID-19 reveal fault-lines in the ways such norms are understood--how travel bans and exclusionary rhetoric extend national borders inward and outward, from the targeting of racialized international students, to the upheaval of the global passport rankings, to travel advisories crossing settler-state and tribal boundaries. Recent approaches to travel writing, mobility, and place studies have emphasized dwelling, emplacement, and urban exploration as a way of engaging with the seeming shifts in discussion towards travel within rather than across space.

Deconstruction contra Fascist Mythologies

American Comparative Literature Association, 2021 Virtual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

By considering antifascism’s historical aspirations to destroy fascism alongside Derrida’s neologistic distinction of deconstruction from Heidegger’s phenomenological Destruktion of metaphysics, the organizers of this seminar seek papers that probe the possibilities and limits of conceptualizing deconstruction as/toward an anti-fascism. Among questions to consider are: Is there room in anti-fascism for a deconstruction that both semantically and philosophically distances itself from outright destruction? Must a deconstruction of fascism specify the “anti” of “anti-fascism,” perhaps through an analysis of deconstruction’s critique of dialectical thinking (à la Deleuze)?

NEMLA 2021: Resurgences of the Past, Fears of the Future: Time(s) in Popular French Fiction

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 19, 2020

Literature in France has always had the potential to become a form of popular entertainment. However, what delighted families in La Bibliothèque Bleue has been forgotten or classified as literary “classics.” But popular literature, or “genre literature,” is more recent. Born in 19th-century newspapers when writers like Méry, Balzac, or Sue published their novels in serial form, its most emblematic writer is Alexandre Dumas. Unlike conventional works, where historical characters are magnified (epic tales) or relegated to the background (La Princesse de Clèves)Dumas’ novels staged characters who marked the history of France.

Call for book chapters on Marguerite Henry's King of the Wind

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 30, 2020

I invite chapter proposals on Marguerite Henry’s Newbery-winning novel King of the Wind for the first in a series of edited collections about Henry’s individual works, edited by Rachel L. Carazo (Northwestern State University).

All areas of study, with a common goal of representing the cultural, social, philosophical, and material significance of King of the Wind are invited to participate.

While writing my graduate thesis, “Conflicting Views of Culture and Power: The Arab World in Marguerite Henry’s King of the Wind”, Dawn Heinecken also published an article about the absence of scholarship on Henry’s works. These proposed collections therefore seek to increase the scholarship available about Marguerite Henry.

Contagions and Non-Human Animals: (Re)Viewing Disregarded Species in Real and Imagined Pandemics

The impact of COVID-19 and the threat that it poses to future human experiences has been well-documented in news reports during the past few months. However, now that non-human animals are possible carriers and becoming infected, their experiences, while often overlooked, are nevertheless integrated into the worldwide pandemic.

Thus, this collection seeks to balance essays about non-human animals during real-world pandemics, such as the COVID-19 one, with those of their experiences during literary or cinematic ones. The scope of this call for papers is broad and can include topics such as:
