Oxford Literary Review 45.1, July 2023. "What might Eco-deconstruction be?”

 

It is not I who deconstruct; rather, something I called ‘deconstruction’ happens to the experience of a world, a culture,

a philosophic tradition: ‘it’ deconstructs, ça ne va pas, there is something that budges, that is in the

process of being dislocated, disjointed, disadjoined, and of which I begin to be aware. Something is

‘deconstructing’ and it has to be answered for.” (Jacques Derrida, in A Taste for the Secret (2001).

 

LATIN AMERICAN WOMEN WRITERS’ CONTRIBUTION TO WORLD LITERATURE

Latin America encompassing South America, parts of Central America, and the Caribbean Islands is remarkable for women’s movements from time to time. While most historical genealogies trace the origin of Latin American feminism around the time period of 1960s and 1970s, a strong feminist expression is evident long before the significant decades of 1960s and 1970s. The earliest feminist expression can be traced as early as during the seventeenth century which emerged as a result of Latin American women’s encounter with the European colonisers. As a result of colonialism, Latin American women became dual victims of oppression: one at the hands of the Europeans, and other, at the hands of their own countrymen.

(ACLA 2022) The Elemental and The Formless

Monday, January 3, 2022 - 11:47am
Oliver Aas (Cornell University)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 15, 2022

This seminar departs from the idea that we need a clearer understanding of elemental forms—traditional and non-traditional—that are in different stages of becoming formless (loss, disappearance, transmutation etc.). On the one hand, we build up on the critical genealogy of the formless (l’informe), a concept once popularized by Bataille in the surrealist journal Documents (1929-30) and later taken up by Bataille’s readers, most famously by Rosalind Krauss & Yves-Alain Bois (1997) and Georges Didi-Huberman (1995). While, on the other hand, we also welcome proposals that conceptualize the formless through different disciplinary vantage points and bring it to bear on the question of elemental forms.

*Final Extension* Call for Chapters: Investigating the Hardwood – Interdisciplinary Analyses of and Reflections on Professional Basketball

updated:

Till Neuhaus & Niklas Thomas
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 17, 2022

As a sport, basketball follows a certain set of rules and conventions which serve as a framework for players, coaches, and teams to play the sport. By their very nature, these rules are meritocratic which means that all participants are equal on the court, play by the same rules, and the only relevant (read as: game deciding) factors are effort, skill, and fortune. Such a perspective on basketball and sports leads certain fans and observers to statements such as “politics should be kept out of sports”.

DEADLINE EXTENDED:

We are seeking chapters for an edited collection on the popular Canadian sitcom, Schitt’s Creek, which had a meteoric rise in the U.S. after airing on Netflix. Schitt’s Creek has been a cultural force with its catchphrases, meme-able moments, and Emmy awards. There is much to unpack to understand the show's popularity and its impact, and, in this edited book collection, we will focus on three central themes: love, place, and identity.

As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report concludes, our planet’s landscapes are rapidly undergoing drastic short-term transformative changes due to anthropogenic factors. The wholesale thawing of Arctic permafrost stands to exacerbate planetary warming to runaway levels (p. 1270); droughts in arid areas are massively exacerbated by agricultural activity (p. 1984); greenhouse gas emissions disrupt natural weather systems so greatly that new microclimates emerge (p. 3514); ocean acidification threatens the viability of aquatic ecosystems (p. 1200); biodiversity is in rapid decline around the globe (p. 211); sea level rise will reclaim vast areas of low-lying land (p.

This session seeks papers that attend to the affordances of infrastructure for aesthetics and of aesthetics for infrastructure in postcolonial/global South literature. We aim to explore infrastructure's own aesthetic capacities, the ways in which built forms and their materials produce specific aesthetic effects and social uses, or the ways in which infrastructure makes aesthetic perception available to social practice. In turn we are interested in the way aesthetic qualities like form, genre, reception, plot, narrative, or medium are themselves infrastructural and shape encounters with infrastructure.

The heterogenous character of protean form of travel writing—letters, journals, logbooks, diaries, memoir, journalistic pieces, guidebooks, confessional narratives, accounts of seafaring voyages, literary picaresque narratives, scientific explorations, artists’ escapades, ventures of urban flâneurs, self-exiled wanderers, and fiction—resists easy demarcation. Its heterogeneity lies in the revisionary stance brought about in each narrative through the distinguishing figure of the traveller, mode of narration, means of mapping, or redefining of the landscape.

Wednesday, December 22, 2021 - 12:40pm

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 1, 2022

There is a burgeoning of academic literature on Boko Haram since the inception of the group in 2009. Many of these studies have taken on a social science analytical perspective to understand “the why” of Boko Haram terrorism. Building on these studies, this panel takes a more humanistic and cultural studies approach to the study of Boko Haram terrorism in Nigeria. Focusing on the ‘experiential truth’ that emerges in the narratives of Boko Haram terrorism in a wide range of media and genres, the panel is interested in understanding Boko Haram terrorism as a lived experience.
