Literature of Crisis and Apocalypse PAMLA Panel

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am

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)

updated: 
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.

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.

The Odyssey of Communism. Visual Narratives, Memory and Culture

Goal: With obvious propagandistic aims, the feature films and documentaries produced in the Eastern Bloc would ‘rewrite’ the history in the making, providing their home audiences with the image of a system that should have been perceived as victorious against the evils of the corrupt, capitalist West, and as a blessing for the ones fortunate enough to be under the protection of the Party.

Equally worth commenting on are the few cultural products of the age that escaped censorship in their attempt to fight the regime, either by subtle insertion of subversive elements in the communist visual propaganda or by ‘emigration’ to a free world that was more than willing to find out what was going on behind the Iron Curtain.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, numerous scholars have been unable to physically access archival records, locked away for an indefinite period of time. In the present, various media industries—studios, streaming services, talent agencies, and more —have continued to announce deals, make public statements, and present a digital front that veils the story underneath. With continued conglomeration and corporate security practices winnowing access to materials, even smaller stakes questions—even the amount of eyes on any particular work on digital platforms—are becoming increasingly impossible to uncover without records.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

19th-century Britain witnessed the convergence of many historical trends that exacerbated disability stigma, even as the era embraced a rehabilitative ethos. The growth of specialized medicine, the expansion of a sprawling asylum system, institutional categorization of the poor, public health initiatives, and the rise of eugenics: all these and more spawned attitudes and practices that worked to disable those who were physically and mentally impaired.
