Cfp. Between XII.24 (November 2022), "Entering the Simulacra World: Aesthetic and Cultural Phenomenologies in Literature, Media, and the Arts"

This issue of Between aims to investigate the phenomenology of simulacra and their range of functions (conceptual, cultural, literary, aesthetic, and in the media). What is meant here by “simulacrum” is any artificial creature that imitates or replicates the outward form and/or behaviour of living beings, especially human beings. When it comes to artefacts produced by technology – conceived in its broader sense as techne, and therefore also including magic and art – the simulacrum reveals itself as marked by operational autonomy and a variable degree of awareness.

"Future of Cities / Future Beyond Cities"

 

In the last decades, cities around the world have experienced unprecendented economic, political, social, and spatial transformations. As these changes bring new challenges for the ways in which we categorize the boundaries of the urban and the definitions of the city, urban theorists have been condering the possibilities of the twenty first century bringing in post-urban stage.

ACLA 2022: Multilingual, Transregional, Comparative Approaches to South Asian Literature

Friday, October 8, 2021 - 11:09am
American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The concept of South Asian literature is inherently unstable; South Asia is a regional term that covers several countries, some of which are still enemies recovering from shared histories of violence. In addition, the region of South Asia encompasses dozens of literary languages, including English – ironically the one “common” language of the region that is also the most "foreign." This panel seeks to animate comparison as a postcolonial and decolonizing practice in South Asian literary criticism. Comparison calls on scholars to think across boundaries of language, region or nation-state to imagine new points of connection among authors, texts, genres and modes.

This special issue of Women’s Studies aims to bring together new and exciting scholarship on the work of Eileen Myles. From their early involvement with the St. Mark’s Poetry Project in New York City in the late 1970s, to their breakthrough success in 2015 with the Ecco/HarperCollins publication of I Must Be Living Twice: New and Selected Poems and republication of their 1994 book Chelsea Girls, Myles has operated at the intersection of multiple traditions: the New York School, queer and trans feminisms, autofiction, and performance.

The Dante sponsored session is designed to engage the poet’s interrogation and exploration of Justice as a fundamental ethical imperative that is rooted in the active free will of knowing and conscientious members of society and transcends contemporary debates about the purview or the limits of Retributive Justice, Distributive Justice, Procedural Justice, and Restorative Justice.

Tinakori: Critical Journal of the Katherine Mansfield Society: Special Edition: Pain

updated:

Katherine Mansfield Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 12, 2021

This special issue of Tinakori seeks to explore representations of physical and emotional pain in Mansfield’s writings. In her seminal text The Body in Pain, Elaine Scarry suggests that pain defies language to become ‘unrepresentable’, an idea more recently challenged. How does Mansfield represent hurt and pain using the literary conventions of short story form (or verse) as a medium? How is this also communicated in her letters and journals?How do bystanders in Mansfield’s work or life respond to those who suffer in some way? Is pain a source of connection or separation?

Queer Sahara | Queer Sonora

A Panel at the 53rd Annual Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) Convention

March 10-13, 2022 in Baltimore, Maryland (although hybrid presentations are possible)

In this panel, we will consider shared connections across desert spaces in the queer imaginary, using the Sonoran Desert and the Sahara Desert as specific sites of comparison, reinvention, liberation, and self-definition. Rather than empty spaces or zones of death, these deserts and their vibrant ecosystems contain various well-established queer enclaves such as Palm Springs, California; Bisbee and Melrose (Phoenix), Arizona; and locales at the edge of the Sahara, such as Fes and Marrakesh, Morocco.

The Art of Drag (Racing): Reading The Fast and the Furious

Despite its outsized popular impact – which spans 20 years, 9 films, a chart-topping song and several viral memes – The Fast Saga remains under-studied. This call for papers invites sustained inquiry into these films for a collection in Post45’s Contemporaries forum, seeking to understand the implications of this series in and on the cultural imagination, especially given the questions posed by its notable divergence from the action film genre.

The University of Florida’s Writing Program invites proposals for our annual Conference on Pedagogy, Practice and Philosophy. This year, as we approach the tenth anniversary of this conference, we want to recognize the continuing importance of developing practical strategies and approaches for teaching writing while also interrogating universities across the US’ desire to return to “normal” instruction this year, even as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

ACLA: Literature After Rights

updated: 
Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 9:33am
American Comparative Literature Association 2022 Annual Meeting
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

For over a decade now, the interdisciplinary study of human rights and literature has offered a generative lens for thinking about questions of citizenship, the nation-state, and narrative form. Scholars have studied the human rights novel (James Dawes), the co-constitution of human rights and the bildungsroman (Joseph Slaughter), literary and cinematic depictions of torture (Elizabeth Swanson Goldberg), and the rights-based political imaginations of American writers of color (Crystal Parikh), among other projects. These approaches have emphasized the discursivity of human rights: literature does not represent a static conception of human rights but rather helps shape understandings of what human rights are or could be.
