Critical Ecologies and Speculative Futures: Conceiving the Environment
Critical theory has questioned the conceptual limits of ideas like the Anthropocene, Capitalocene, and supremacy of human animals over nature. Ongoing global crises, such as climate change, divergent levels of modernization, and the search for bold and expedient solutions to accelerating environmental crises urge new frameworks to analyze an interdependent world.

Drawing its inspiration from Edward Said’s discussion of the ways in which texts become ‘worldly’ through a series of filiations and affiliations, the ALA invites papers and panels that address such relations in all their forms. What are the filial structures that a text brings to its readers? What kind of affiliative readings might a critic bring to the text to disrupt the filial ties? What are the stakes in engaging in the traffic between filiative and affiliative readings? Beyond considerations of (a)ffiliated critical practice, how do literary and other cultural texts represent filiations and affiliations and in what ways do they constitute such relations?

Considerations of strategies and experiences teaching under the current spate of laws that are making the classroom into a space of surveillance, danger, threat. Emotional states, states as government entities, states of being—all impact our work as pedagogues—of the eighteenth century or anything else. In particular, where proposed (and soon to pass) laws seek to silence teaching about race and gender specifically, the term “classical liberal arts” treats the eighteenth century as a ’safe space’ of Enlightenment tradition--running up against current efforts to responsibly ‘decolonize’ or remake the “eighteenth century” as some of us received it.
“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Does play guarantee pleasure? Does work preclude pleasure? Do you have a guilty pleasure?
This interdisciplinary conference aims to explore the dynamic relationships between play and pleasure in various literary and cultural contexts, while critically examining the contemporary debates surrounding these themes. We encourage submissions that emphasise their interconnectedness rather than treating them as separate entities. In this light, we invite scholars to redefine, subvert, or “play” with these terms.
Influenced by Le Corbusier’s ‘Radiant City’, the Pruitt-Igoe housing projects in St. Louis were a modernist, utopian vision of urban renewal. However, they quickly slid into disrepair and in 1972 were partially demolished in a nationwide, televised spectacle. The failure of Pruitt-Igoe shows us that the dystopia is always necessarily contained within the utopia: despite the intentions of its architect Minoru Yamasaki, in planning the Pruitt-Igoe housing projects, it was always destined to be a vision of 'functional' racial segregation by its federal ideators. Although the edict of racial segregation was thrown out by the Supreme Court, the dystopian seed had been planted, and serves as an exemplar for what a dystopia truly is: a utopia unraveled.
