Sunday, October 31, 2021

In this seminar, we wish to examine how people of different positionalities vis a vis the ‘center’ and ‘peripheries’ of modern research universities, practice comparative literary studies within institutions which, from the start, were built upon the logic of exclusion and exclusionary tactics.  The “modern university” stands in a long tradition of colonial and racialized traditions of knowledge-making which purported to be secular and universalizable.

In recent decades, the practice of collaborative intellectual labor has had an unexpected resurgence, both among writers and artists, and within scholarly and academic spaces. Drawing on a rich history of intellectual, activist, and artistic practices of collaboration, new collectives and research groups have embraced collaborative forms of knowledge production to challenge the individualization of intellectual labor and the demands of the neoliberal episteme.

Floating Islands; or, Saikaku's Eighteenth Century

updated: 
Thursday, September 16, 2021 - 3:15pm
American Society of 18th Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 17, 2021

Following the various calls for a more global perspective on the eighteenth century at ASECS 2021, this panel seeks papers on the work of Japanese author Ihara Saikaku (1642-1693). In her 2016 book, The Age of Silver, Ning Ma discusses Saikaku as the most significant representative figure of the “stories of the floating world” that, she argues, should be seen as an emergence of realist fiction. A bestseller in 17th and 18th century Japan, Saikaku’s work fell into obscurity until a revival of interest in the late 19th century, when he became known as “Japan’s realist”.

Special Issue of Lamar Journal of the Humanities-- 9/11 and Its Aftermath

updated: 
Thursday, September 16, 2021 - 3:15pm
Lamar Journal of the Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 1, 2022

The Lamar Journal of the Humanities, a peer-reviewed, scholarly indexed interdisciplinary journal, invites papers for its 2021-22 Special Issue on “9/11 and Its Aftermath.” 

The 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 offers a timely opportunity to reflect on the tremendous influence that fateful morning has had over the last two decades. Technically the new century began on the first day of 2000, and the new millennium on the first day of 2001, but the new world arrived on that Tuesday—a world that, for better or worse, we largely still inhabit. It is in this spirit that we dedicate our 2021-22 issue to scholarly examinations of 9/11 and its aftermath, associations, and phenomena.
