The goal of this panel is to provide a platform to locate the fast-evolving theoretical precepts in translation from a postcolonial and cultural studies perspective. Taking an in depth look at the possibilities and challenges posed by translation, we aim to demonstrate the ways in which ‘ethical’ translation in various possible senses can be integral to forming a resistance culture to counter the political environment in the metropole, which aims to suppress multilingual and multicultural realities in the US and beyond.

Our new workshop offers the tools for scholars who wish to enter and explore the fascinating world of Digital Humanities (DH) under the guidance of expert Dr. Rada Varga.
Today, experiments about how humans think usually take place in a lab, allowing researchers to locate thought processes in the brain with unprecedented precision. However, writers have experimented with thinking for much longer. For instance, Virginia Woolf argued in her essay “Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid" (1940) that a new form of (women's) writing can cause a shift in how British men think and bring about peace. Between the Acts (1941) demonstrates how tone, rhythm, and diction can produce different cognitive registers—Elizabethan, Enlightenment, and Victorian—thus connecting form and cognition.

We’re seeking chapter-length contributions to an edited volume on politics and the Western. The working title for this project is A Fistful of Politics: The Western and Political Thought. We’re anticipating that much of our collection will deal with Western films, but we’re open to—and excited about—contributions that discuss anything within the Western genre (prose fiction, films, television series, comics, poetry, video games, theater, music, etc.) in connection with politics and political thought.

The avant-garde has often been defined by its asserted antagonism towards existing norms, and, in turn, critiqued for its ultimate co-option or complicity in those norms. Building on this rich tradition of reflection on the significance and role of the avant-garde, this seminar is interested in shifting the focus to its collaborative dimensions: its networks and communities of production and consumption, including editors and publishers, distributors and readers, and literary networks and communities, alongside the more-studied figure of the individual artist/author. Robert Darnton has influentially referred to this as a “communications circuit”; Mark S.

a Broken System…
"Johnson and Pope: Agon or Admiration Society?" Timothy Erwin, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, firstname.lastname@example.org At the 2020 ASECS meeting in Toronto a speaker suggested that Samuel Johnson and Alexander Pope engaged in "a lifelong agon." The idea deserves sustained discussion. When the unknown Johnson published "London" (1738), he entered willingly or not into a competition with Pope, whose "One Thousand Seven Hundred and Thirty Eight: A Dialogue" appeared about the same time. Pope was impressed, saying of the anonymous author that his identity would soon be known.
Romantic Poets have always been viewed as Nature poets. The stereotype of nature, pastoral, or sceneries has been the trademark. But as literature students, we come across the point, is romantic poetry limited to nature, sky, river, and brooks?
The best part about this small question is the ambiguity of the answer. On the superficial level, romantic poetry and Victorian poetry are confined to nature poetry. But Blake and Wordsworth are not the torchbearers of romanticism. The credit goes to Geoffrey Chaucer, the father of poetry. Chaucer has written The Canterbury tales has elements of romanticism.
The Derrida Today Conference will focus on the ongoing value of either Derrida’s work, or deconstruction, to the political-ethical, cultural, artistic and public debates and philosophical futures that confront us. The conference will be broadly interdisciplinary and invites contributions from a range of academic, disciplinary and cultural contexts. We will accept papers and panel proposals from scholars, academics and postgraduates, on any aspect of Derrida’s work, or deconstruction, in relation to various topics as well as contemporary issues.

What does “authenticity” denote in the study literature? Is there a way of writing authentically, reading authentically, or is authenticity just the effect of certain kinds of literary tension or structure? This seminar will study the many ways of understanding the notion of authenticity in textual study. While the seminar aims to focus on the interplay between the fictional and the nonfictional in literatures of all periods, the panel would more than welcome papers dealing with other aspects of “authenticity” in artistic creation such as, but not limited to:
Historicity and factualness in literature
Memoir and witness accounts
Reader response and its authenticities (cognitive studies)
Podcasts have left the garage and entered the university. This seminar considers the ever-expanding place of podcasts and podcasting in humanities research, teaching, and scholarship. Are podcasts welcome alternatives to the gatekeeping of academic journals and exclusive conferences? Or is “start a podcast” the new “learn to code,” just another skill that humanities scholars must adopt to stay relevant in a shrinking field? Do podcasts encourage new forms of scholarship, knowledge, and collaboration? What are the intersections between podcasts and the fields of public humanities, digital humanities, and sound studies?

Is theoretical resistance to totality still viable today, in this moment of totalizing crisis? How might we reclaim totality as a conceptual ground that can account for the relationship between experience, on the one hand, and the historical-material processes that shape cultural production, on the other? Almost a century after György Lukács reinstated the concept at the very center of Marx’s project, and some four decades since the publication of Fredric Jameson’s The Political Unconscious, we are compelled to ask: how might we think about cultural production, circulation, and consumption in relation with, rather than in opposition to, totality?
This panel is interested in critiques of narratives and representations of spaces and technologies of care, including the medicalization of homes, disabling spaces in the home, examinations of how bodied and disembodied artificial intelligence may change geographies of care, deterritorialization of long-term care facilities, the cosmopolitanized spaces of care in hotels, the gendered and racialized politics of service industries, and the promotion or promise of care through mediated forms of print and digital technologies.
This panel seeks to explore the contemporary uses of the Greek “care” or epimeleia particularly in ways enabled by Michel Foucault’s analysis of the notion connecting to (self)knowledge, subjectivity, and mode of life.
Dancing, perhaps most famously of the Tik Tok variety, has helped many cope and adapt to the past year’s pandemic, making people feel connected in an almost choreographed way. Not only infiltrating certain web sites, site-specific dance—choreographed work inspired by a specific space or place—is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in environmental terms. Recent projects such as Karole Armitage’s “On the Nature of Things” or Jody Sperling’s “Polar Rhythms” have taken nature, and more specifically climate change and other environmental issues, as their source of inspiration. A transformative art, dance offers the possibility of intimate connection and even continuous metamorphosis.
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.
