Displacement

 

 

This is a funded, weeklong workshop hosted by the Department of English, University of Hyderabad and Co-Sponsored by the South-South Forum at Dartmouth College.

 

Description:

Diasporas are formed by either gradual accretion of immigrants, or sudden expulsion of huge masses. While the former is often viewed as a voluntary movement, the latter results from forced dispersal. One of the defining characteristics of migration – voluntary or forced – is that of displacement.

[https://theasa.net/annual-meeting] In the past year, labor organizing in the United States has flourished in various sites of workplace precarity: from Amazon warehouses to Hollywood writer’s rooms, from  Starbucks cafes to some of the most prestigious research universities across the U.S. This labor activity has an acoustic register, a sonic praxis that relies on noisemaking to extend the picket beyond the material limits of the line.

"Ephron on three": Masculinit(ies) in Ted Lasso

In Season 3, Episode 11 of Apple TV’s Ted Lasso, Mae–the show’s matrimonial barkeeper– softly recited Philip Larkin’s “This be the Verse,” a poem about the emotional scars parents leave their children. Coming as it does near the end of the series run, the poem references the trauma(s) the main character has inherited from his parents, and ties together many of the themes of the series, namely how “hurt people hurt people.” In keeping with the tone of the series, however, the pub owner’s reading of Larkin’s poem does not serve as a moral repudiation of Ted’s parents or their generation.

Speculative Fiction (SF) creators regularly imagine worlds in precipitous decline where the privileged few live in a safe, prosperous, hazard-free enclave from which surplus subaltern populations are excluded. What do these stories of safety for the few while the “surplus” rot outside or join a captive servant class status tell us about our own concepts of borders, citizenship, and expendability? Presenters are invited to engage with one or more texts using cultural studies, postcolonial theory, or other relevant analytic tool to analyze how gated communities function in the SF canon or the real world.

ICMS 2024: Crafting the Afterlife: Depictions of Heaven, Hell, and Unearthly Spaces in Medieval Literature

Depictions of the afterlife abound in medieval texts of every genre and form. From descriptions of heaven, hell, and purgatory to explorations of reincarnation and mythical spaces like Hades and the Elysian fields, medieval thinkers utilized art, music, literature, and theology to imagine different forms of life after death. In turn, such texts shaped what the afterlife looked like, sounded like, and felt like. With every work of writing and art, the afterlives depicted in classical literature and scripture took on slightly or drastically different forms. This session seeks to delve into the medieval construction of the afterlife, examining how life after death was depicted, interpreted, and experienced in medieval culture, both within and beyond Europe.

NeMLA 2023 Panel: Animals of the Victorian Age: Queer Ecology and the Emphasis on Animal Kinship

Saturday, September 30, 2023

In Animal Rights: Considered in Relation to Social Process (1892), Henry Salt argues that “Oppression and cruelty are invariably founded on a lack of imaginative sympathy,” which purports the notion of the “tyrant or tormentor” from ever having a “true sense of kinship with the victim” (16). In a similar way, Donna Haraway states in When Species Meet (2007), that “we are a knot of species coshaping [sic] one another in layers of reciprocating complexity all the way down” (42). Taking cues from Salt and Haraway, our panel will take up key features of human and animal relations and their intersection with the queerness of imaginative sympathy.

Abstract

In this thematic issue, we explore the place and role of animals in media, their representation and influence in the context of new media, advertising, social networks, films, series, and other forms of media content. Animals hold a significant position in popular culture and have become an integral part of our interaction with the media environment. We invite authors to explore various aspects of the presence of animals in new media and examine the ethical and social questions associated with their use and representation.
