In/Visible: Designs of Social Experience

The regimes of Whiteness, heteronormativity, androcentrism, able-bodiedness or Eurocentrism have for a long time constituted the frameworks of ‘proper’, ‘successful’ or expected social conduct, organising in a normative way social communication, relations and spaces. The regimes have been shaping social life, state policies and institutions, or fields of science and arts. Social practices are imbued with preconceptions concerning race, sexuality, gender, health or ethnicity which have become so commonsensical that it takes a lot of critical effort to go beyond the normative context.

Cultures of Sexuality

Since the sexual abuse allegations against American film producer Harvey Weinstein in Oct 2017, the #metoo movement has received wide attention on social media and in public life. What this movement has reminded us is sexual abuse is deeply implicated in social/hierarchical power structures (forcing survivors to suffer violence and then hide trauma). It has also offered the possibility of speaking against sexual abuse, harassment, and violence in public and “shaming” perpetrators (as “due process” has often been painful, slow, and unfair). The movement has led to public debates on questions of patriarchy, power, nepotism, culture, clothing, ethics, and ideology.

Literature of Crisis and Apocalypse PAMLA Panel

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Apocalyptic literature and its study have typically centered around notions of Christian eschatology, i.e. the judgement presented in the Book of Revelations. However, the aftermath of the second world war helped reshape our notions of this genre. Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has begun to examine the relations between humans and the Earth during the Anthropocene. Images of global thermonuclear war, fears of communism, and a burgeoning climate change (with its subsequent and constituent crises) have eclipsed the teleological notions of divine creation and its eventual, inexorable movement towards eschatology.

Don DeLillo and Religious Spaces PAMLA Panel

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

The Don DeLillo Society invites abstracts on DeLillo's use of space, virtual or physical, as new religious sites. From Jack Gladney's transcendent trips to the supermarket in White Noise to Sister Edgar's implied dissolution into the virtual heaven of the internet in Underworld, religious spaces proliferate throughout DeLillo's work. Yet in contrast to the religious experience, DeLillo also suggests a destructive inversion: The Airborne Toxic Event, The Kazakh Test Site. Characters often undertake pilgrimages to mid-Western towns, art exhibits, weapons testing sites, and even city dumps. In each of these excursions, characters seek to understand a sociality between themselves and the contexts they inhabit.

Issue Description:

Latin American Gothic Literature in its Early Stages: Trappings, Tropes, and Theories (NeMLA 2021)

Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:14am
NeMLA Conference 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The Gothic is having a moment, as it tends to do in times of collective panic and uncertainty. Even Latin America, whose geographical, linguistic and historical distinctiveness have supported its all-but-exclusion from global Gothic Studies, has experienced a rise in scholarship on contemporary Gothic horror—from studies on the double and hybridity to zombies and cannibals, among others. Typically excluded from this narrative, however, are theories on the origins and early representations of the Gothic, and how regional, linguistic and historical particularities nourished a Latin American Gothic tradition that, although indebted to its European Gothic predecessors, deviated from it in unique and meaningful ways.

This session invites those who have experience in research, course development and/or teaching with partners from another discipline to share how to (and perhaps how not to!) build and sustain those relationships. We are interested in hearing about triumphs as well as learning from less successful attempts. The organizers (a mathematician and a humanist) will discuss their own roller coaster experiences co-leading Humanistic STEM, a major, highly interdisciplinary, project at their university and invite participants to share their own stories.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Since Carol J. Clover’s seminal work Men, Women, and Chainsaws (1992), feminist readings of horror movies have gained an enthusiastic theoretical momentum. In employing various frameworks and lenses and by complicating our spectatorial position, this rich corpus of literature has perhaps contributed to a resignification of the genre and its tropes. However, amid the emergence of luminous movies that defy and challenge horror’s misogynistic and racialized foundations, several questions arise: Is contemporary horror cinema really abjuring its heteronormative, original structure? Does mainstream horror still convey trite reactionary messages with renewed vigor?

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS:
“What is ethical innovation?”

Have the last 20-50 years of innovation been a success? How does society view the founder? Is risk appropriately distributed across the innovation dynamic? What roles should the government take in scientific progress? What entities are responsible for technical disasters? How important are individual rights and privacy? What problems should innovators focus on for the next twenty years?

The collection includes a range of essays from both academics and professionals working on ethical issues facing the future of innovation.

The months of May and June, 2020, saw unprecedented global protests against anti-Black racism and calls for a more equitable and just society that recognizes the humanity and lives of people of African descent. While these protests initially originated across the United States, protesters around the world quickly galvanized in support of these issues organizing events in a growing number of countries, including Canada, Mexico, Haiti, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa, Australia and Japan. This has been an important moment for Black scholars, activists, and cultural producers everywhere—as well as their friends and allies—to reflect not only on the crisis that has marked Black lives, but also on our future possibilities.
