The organizers of this seminar invite abstracts for American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) 2022

 

The goal of this panel is to provide a platform to locate the fast-evolving theoretical precepts in translation from a postcolonial and cultural studies perspective. Taking an in depth look at the possibilities and challenges posed by translation, we aim to demonstrate the ways in which ‘ethical’ translation in various possible senses can be integral to forming a resistance culture to counter the political environment in the metropole, which aims to suppress multilingual and multicultural realities in the US and beyond.

Today, experiments about how humans think usually take place in a lab, allowing researchers to locate thought processes in the brain with unprecedented precision. However, writers have experimented with thinking for much longer. For instance, Virginia Woolf argued in her essay “Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid" (1940) that a new form of (women's) writing can cause a shift in how British men think and bring about peace. Between the Acts (1941) demonstrates how tone, rhythm, and diction can produce different cognitive registers—Elizabethan, Enlightenment, and Victorian—thus connecting form and cognition.

The avant-garde has often been defined by its asserted antagonism towards existing norms, and, in turn, critiqued for its ultimate co-option or complicity in those norms. Building on this rich tradition of reflection on the significance and role of the avant-garde, this seminar is interested in shifting the focus to its collaborative dimensions: its networks and communities of production and consumption, including editors and publishers, distributors and readers, and literary networks and communities, alongside the more-studied figure of the individual artist/author. Robert Darnton has influentially referred to this as a “communications circuit”; Mark S.

Johnson and Pope: Agon or Admiration Society?

   "Johnson and Pope: Agon or Admiration Society?" Timothy Erwin, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, timothy.erwin@unlv.edu At the 2020 ASECS meeting in Toronto a speaker suggested that Samuel Johnson and Alexander Pope engaged in "a lifelong agon." The idea deserves sustained discussion. When the unknown Johnson published "London" (1738), he entered willingly or not into a competition with Pope, whose "One Thousand Seven Hundred and Thirty Eight: A Dialogue" appeared about the same time. Pope was impressed, saying of the anonymous author that his identity would soon be known.

Romantic Poets have always been viewed as Nature poets. The stereotype of nature, pastoral, or sceneries has been the trademark. But as literature students, we come across the point, is romantic poetry limited to nature, sky, river, and brooks? 

The best part about this small question is the ambiguity of the answer. On the superficial level, romantic poetry and Victorian poetry are confined to nature poetry. But Blake and Wordsworth are not the torchbearers of romanticism. The credit goes to Geoffrey Chaucer, the father of poetry. Chaucer has written The Canterbury tales has elements of romanticism.

What does “authenticity” denote in the study literature? Is there a way of writing authentically, reading authentically, or is authenticity just the effect of certain kinds of literary tension or structure? This seminar will study the many ways of understanding the notion of authenticity in textual study. While the seminar aims to focus on the interplay between the fictional and the nonfictional in literatures of all periods, the panel would more than welcome papers dealing with other aspects of “authenticity” in artistic creation such as, but not limited to:

Historicity and factualness in literature

Memoir and witness accounts 

Reader response and its authenticities (cognitive studies)

Podcasts have left the garage and entered the university. This seminar considers the ever-expanding place of podcasts and podcasting in humanities research, teaching, and scholarship. Are podcasts welcome alternatives to the gatekeeping of academic journals and exclusive conferences? Or is “start a podcast” the new “learn to code,” just another skill that humanities scholars must adopt to stay relevant in a shrinking field? Do podcasts encourage new forms of scholarship, knowledge, and collaboration? What are the intersections between podcasts and the fields of public humanities, digital humanities, and sound studies?

Is theoretical resistance to totality still viable today, in this moment of totalizing crisis? How might we reclaim totality as a conceptual ground that can account for the relationship between experience, on the one hand, and the historical-material processes that shape cultural production, on the other? Almost a century after György Lukács reinstated the concept at the very center of Marx’s project, and some four decades since the publication of Fredric Jameson’s The Political Unconscious, we are compelled to ask: how might we think about cultural production, circulation, and consumption in relation with, rather than in opposition to, totality?

Dancing, perhaps most famously of the Tik Tok variety, has helped many cope and adapt to the past year’s pandemic, making people feel connected in an almost choreographed way. Not only infiltrating certain web sites, site-specific dance—choreographed work inspired by a specific space or place—is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in environmental terms. Recent projects such as Karole Armitage’s “On the Nature of Things” or Jody Sperling’s “Polar Rhythms” have taken nature, and more specifically climate change and other environmental issues, as their source of inspiration. A transformative art, dance offers the possibility of intimate connection and even continuous metamorphosis.

Sunday, October 17, 2021

This symposium and edited volume seeks to draw together research into cinematic exhibition in Italy throughout the twentieth and twenty-first century. Current research into Italian cinema is continuously expanding its purview to consider the great range of genres, forms and contexts that have been engaged by filmmakers working in the country. Similarly, recent studies have shone vital light on the complex make up of Italy’s film audiences, and on the practices of film producers and distributors in the country. This project will continue this critical expansion by investigating the myriad ways in which film media (both Italian and foreign) has been exhibited and consumed in Italy.
