Global Futures

Thursday, December 1, 2022

The editors of New Global Studies invite proposals for essays on the subject of ‘global futures’. Essays may cover any historical period. The central questions that this forum poses are:

How have globalization and globality affected historical periodization?

How do global re-conceptualizations of the past and present rely on assumptions and beliefs about the future?

How has the now-widespread use of the term ‘anthropocene’ affected a global consciousness?

How do the phenomena of de-globalization and re-globalization relate to global futures?

How do ‘unforeseen’ future events (particularly crises such as pandemics) employ global narratives?

What is the place of futurism in global studies?

NYU 2023 Cinema Studies Conference: After After

How do we build after our foundations have been shaken? How do we create images after the afterimage? When four graduate students came together to plan a conference, we realized that we shared a methodological and utopian vision for our field. We have been trained to dismantle images, methods, and structures, but what we long for is to create, sketch, build, make, affirm and fabulate. We cherish the tactics of critique and deconstruction that came after the foundations, but we now find ourselves reaching for different tools, ones that can help us draw a new blueprint. With “AfterAfter,”wewish to create a venue for scholars who are also interested in generative, affirmative, and speculative methodologies for the study of cinema and media.

Convenience stores and gas stations that serve food exist nationwide, yet the full meal options available to patrons in the US South appears to be something of an anomaly. The menus at these southern roadside establishments look like they could be found at any restaurant, offering items from fried chicken and potato logs to collard greens and cornbread to sausage biscuits and roast beef po-boys. But unlike traditional or fast food restaurants, gas stations and other roadside food providers are sustained by the traveler. For the traveler, roadside or gas station food allows a brief respite and the comfort of hot food while away from home.

Roundtable proposed at the 2023 ASLE + AESS Conference: “Reclaiming the Commons”

July 9-12, 2023 in Portland, Oregon

On the topic of regional literature, authors Sherrie A. Inness and Diana Royer write, “[W]e find our subjectivities profoundly influenced by our locatedness” (6) – that our personal relationships with land and place are inherently connected to the discourses of socio-cultural conflicts and tensions which emerge from these defined regional spaces. Through the lens of ecohorror, we aim to examine literary and visual representations of regional identity-making as they intersect with (and are informed by) the uncertainties and fears specific to their locality.

In Nicomachean Ethics and Politics, Aristotle conceived ethics and politics to be both interrelated and exclusively male endeavors. This notion continued to be influential in the early modern period (c. 1500 – 1800). Yet in recent decades, feminist scholarship has showed that throughout the early modern world numerous women nonetheless discussed, developed, and challenged politics and ethics in profound and often surprising ways.

Summary

This two-day interdisciplinary conference calls for a renewed exploration of Modernist discourses to reflect on the plural iterations of the machine – as a myth, cult, and mechanical product – within the context of Modernism and modernity.

Sitting with Discomfort and Bending Decolonial Mastery: The Affective and Transformative Possibilities of The LiteraryOrganized by Miriam Sbih and Flora Roussel Recent studies and pedagogical practices concerning the teaching of socially, politically, and emotionally difficult concepts (racism, colonialism, and sexism to name but a few) increasingly foster and deeply reflect on the implications of a vulnerable posture within the learners (Brantmeier; 2013). While these educational experiences can lead to emotional and physical discomfort for the person who confronts them, a vulnerable perspective allows us to overcome this initial discomfort and take advantage of it.
