The establishment of the department also marked the institutionalization Black Studies “as a ‘scientific discipline’ rooted in racial redemption, liberatory scholarship and community revitalization, the discipline of Africana Studies is a body of systematized knowledge, theories, methods, and laws, which are congruent with the African centered paradigm and philosophy.” (Tshaka, 2012, p 29).

A human-animal studies conference at the University of Oulu, 4-6 October 2023

 

The year 2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the Rio Convention on Biological Diversity, and so little has happened that the fourth decade begins with the recent UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) declaration that we are now dealing with an existential crisis. One of the identified root causes of biodiversity loss is said to stem from people’s perceptions of other species – a realm of inquiry addressed widely in human–animal studies and critical animal studies.

ʻAn encounter is perhaps the same thing as a becoming [...] You encounter people [...] movements, ideas, events, entities [...] It designates an effect, a zigzag, something which passes or happens between two as though under a potential difference [...] a single becoming which is not common to the two [...] but which is between the two, which has its own direction, a bloc of becoming, an a-parallel evolution.ʼ

PAMLA 2023 Panel: Changing perspectives on migration through literature in translation

updated: 
Tuesday, April 11, 2023 - 2:29pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2023

Migration has become a global phenomenon that indicates complexity and diversity. The mobility of people has also influenced how texts are migrated through translation and how it could influence cultural production. Translation, which facilitates “communication, understanding, and action between persons or groups who differ in language and culture” (Bassnett 5), plays a vital role in the migration diaspora. Texts like people, want to seek new opportunities, they search for a new life in a new place and time, as Moira Inghilleri points out in her book entitled Translation and Migration published in 2017, migration is a “continuous becoming”, it “necessitates movement” (1 & 3).

“Ah! How cheerfully we consign ourselves to perdition!” exclaims Ishmael in Melville’s Moby-Dick, lamenting the “universal thump” of work that we tolerate only for the promise of “being paid.” Ishmael makes it clear that work—and its compensation—is full of paradox and contradiction, an ambivalent source of enjoyment and suffering incompletely rationalized by a financial transaction.
