Integration, citizenship and repatriation are frequently discussed, especially in recent years, on the migrations from Syria and Afghanistan. The discussion is carried out on the following questions:

Jewish Los Angeles "Jewish Literature and Culture" panel at the Pacific Modern Languages AssociationNovember 11-13, 2022 From Boyle Heights to Hollywood, and from Santa Monica to the Valley, Los Angeles has been a site for fantastic projections, colonial encounters, and organized struggles for Jews “moving West” since the late 19th century. This panel explores how L.A. as the other “promised land” is figured in the writings, films, artworks, and music of Jewish Californians and immigrants.  From its settlement as a supposedly empty “virgin territory” to its more recent description as a city that has no memory of itself, Los Angeles is often stylized as a place without identity, history, or borders (Baudrillard, Mike Davis, Thom Andersen, Vanessa Place).

This week-long workshop will bring together both critical and creative writers to support one another in the development of new written work across a wide range of “popular” genres, forms and approaches. “Genres Against the Market” aims to foster a temporary community to encourage radical writers to explore new methods for reaching unconventional audiences toward a critique of economic limitation and possibility. Leaving aside the familiar form of the conventional academic essay and monograph, we aim to host a gathering to explore how radical ideas that challenge reigning forms of social and economic power can be expressed and broadcast using “popular” formats of writing.

Considering texts broadly as documentary, artistic, visual, aural, textile, performed, or inhabited, what new kinds and uses of evidence are recovering histories through texts? We especially invite underrepresented or interdisciplinary scholarship.

The panel will seek to develop our concept of editing for new kinds of evidence and build bridges between the ADE and MLA communities. Our aim is to foster conversation between people interested in traditional and non-traditional forms of editing and researchers who are making use of new or innovative editions and collections.

ENSFR Annual Conference, Lisbon 2022 — Short Fiction as World Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 6:59pm
European Network for Short Fiction Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 3, 2022

In Death of a Discipline, Gayatri Spivak mentions the problematic identification of “literature” with the novel form in comparative literature (2005: 123). Her concern with our general blindness to non-hegemonic forms recalls the consternation frequently shown in short fiction criticism toward the enduring novel-centrism of literary studies. This conference aims to bring together scholars with an interest in examining this tension and the different ways in which it may extend to the field of world literature. But our goal is not to look at the short form once again in stark opposition to the novel.

Lendings, signifying, identities

deadline for submissions:

Identity, role and gender have their parts to play in narratives, and recognition may be a feature in plots. Clothing functions in a cultural, semiotic, system. It’s a signifier in the Bible and Shakespeare. We look for associations with Christian and Biblical themes in literary texts, and papers will have a reading time of 20 minutes.

MLA 2023 Ricoeur's Interpretation Theory and Our Work Now (Special Session)

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 6:58pm
Nate Mickelson, New York Univ
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 16, 2022

Paul Ricoeur insisted there is always more meaning than can be articulated, appropriated, or understood. This session seeks enactments, explorations, and reconsiderations of his Interpretation Theory 50 years later. Though the book was published in 1976, Ricoeur delivered the lectures in fall 1973. It was a period of social and intellectual reckoning similar to our own. Ricoeur had recently relocated to the University of Chicago from Paris-Nanterre under criticism for his attempts to mitigate conflicts during the 1968 student uprisings. In parallel with this personal crisis, Ricoeur was turning in his thought from considerations of symbolic interpretation to considerations of texts and their social and political dimensions.

Urban Ruins: Reframing Repair in Cities of the Global South (for MLA 2023)

Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 6:58pm
Rituparna Mitra / Emerson College
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

This panel examines literary and cultural urbanisms in the Global South in the context of reframing repair. Until recently, cities in the Global South have been examined mainly as models of crisis, dysfunction, and brokenness. The urgent work of repairing their imperfect conditions has, in turn, been perceived solely in terms of rapid and uneven development in official discourse. Scholars such as Ann Laura Stoler, Filip de Boeck, Ananya Roy, Achille Mbembe, and others, have instead urged us to rethink ruins, lacks, lags, and gaps as origin sites for emergent forms and practices that alter conditions of the possible.

Gender Perspectives in Media and Performance [An Edited Book]

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 6:56pm
Dr H Kalpana, Professor, Dept of English, Pondicherry University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

Gendered identities and realities are constituted through, among other things, media, and performance. Paradoxically, however, the representations that substantiate these gender categories are often deployed for radically different purposes. For instance, they might be brought into play for the mobilization of dominant ideologies, on the one hand, and feminist disruptions, on the other. With attention to the diverse forums through which artistic and popular texts reach the public, this edited volume aims to address the inconsistencies, the absurdities, and irregularities of gender in terms of performativity from a historical and contemporary global context.
