"I, too, having lost faith / in language, have placed my faith in language" (Terrance Hayes, "Snow for Wallace Stevens")

As Terrance Hayes exemplifies in his portrayal of Wallace Stevens’ racism, language underpins both care-full and care-less representations. As an interdependent system that necessarily implicates and involves us all, language demands our thoughtful investigation when it comes to how we might communicate care.

Monday, September 27, 2021 - 6:14pm
Damien Pollard & Edward Bowen
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 17, 2021

This symposium and edited volume seeks to draw together research into cinematic exhibition in Italy throughout the twentieth and twenty-first century. Current research into Italian cinema is continuously expanding its purview to consider the great range of genres, forms and contexts that have been engaged by filmmakers working in the country. Similarly, recent studies have shone vital light on the complex make up of Italy’s film audiences, and on the practices of film producers and distributors in the country. This project will continue this critical expansion by investigating the myriad ways in which film media (both Italian and foreign) has been exhibited and consumed in Italy.

UNED, Madrid 6-8 April 2022

The year 2022 marks the centenary of the publication of T.S. Eliot’s poem The Waste Land.

Hence, the overarching theme of the conference is open to all kinds of reflections around the concept of “wasteland” and waste. EAAS 2022 invites proposals that address the concept of waste in U.S. culture, history, and politics.

Proposals may address (but are not restricted to) the following topics:

NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022

 

How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.

-Killing members of the group

-Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group

-Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring physical destruction in whole or in part

-Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group

-Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group

Children and Political Conflict

updated: 
Saturday, September 25, 2021 - 6:49pm
The Critical Childhoods and Youth Studies Collective (CCYSC)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021

We are excited to announce the CCYSC Blog Theme for October and November 2021: "Children and Political Conflict".

 

The impact of political conflict has been widely understood in terms of destruction to property, casualties and displacement. Changing trends in the nature of conflicts suggest that conflicts are more often protracted and occur increasingly in populated civil areas. (Save the Children International, 2018). As a result, the consequences are now being seen beyond the damage to tangible properties and bodies, through  intangible psychosocial impact. 

Genre Trouble in Early Modern England (1500–1800)

CFP: “Genre Trouble in Early Modern England (1500–1800)”  

Friday 11th March 2022, 9:30–4pm (Online) 

Queen Mary University of London and Sorbonne Université 

Keynote: Dr Kathryn Murphy (University of Oxford)  

 

Early modern writings frequently resist neat or easy generic categorisation. Subject to interpretation, pastiche and modification, generic categories offer flexible guidelines rather than a strict set of rules. This one-day conference aims to look at generic experimentation, hybridity and innovation in early modern writing as a way to better understand the period’s multiple and evolving conceptions of genre.

Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel explores concepts and stereotypes lying behind the vision of love and eroticism expressed by Latin American authors. This panel creates a dialogue about writers’ depictions of love, affections, and womanhood and how those ideas reflect, renew, or challenge Latin American societies. Comparative or feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable; other approaches also considered.

Submit abstracts (300 words maximum) by September 30, 2021, to Session ID # 19143
