Speculative Figures and Speculative Futures: Our Uncanny Postapocalypse
Chairs: Tommy Mayberry (St. Jerome’s University at the University of Waterloo) and Tommy Bourque (Western University)
The proliferation of essays on the essay is evidence of this literary form’s provocative nature. The essay compels us to reflect on what this art form “is,” while it avoids easy classification. In “She: Portrait of the Essay as a Warm Body,” Cynthia Ozick invites us to think of the essay not so much as a genre, but rather as a gender: “She is too fluid or too elusive to be a category... she is the protagonist, the secret self's personification…why should we not call her she?”

ISSUE 11 (SUMMER 2021)
In response to debates considering the relationship between illness and narrative, and the extent to which these concepts can be seen as mutually constitutive, this issue of On_Culture seeks to gather new approaches and critical perspectives to the intricate relationship between narrative and illness.

About the Conference
The social exclusion, economic marginalization and cultural subjugation of Indigenous people are pervasive in all regions across the globe due to colonialism and neocolonialism. Even today, Indigenous people continue to struggle to protect their rights to culture, community, heritage, and land. This international conference on Indigenous Studies will allow like-minded researchers, scholars and academicians to explore new avenues in Indigenous Studies. The conference will enable participants to discuss current issues within Indigenous Studies while emphasizing new ways to empower and work collaboratively with Indigenous communities around the world.
We live in a deeply interconnected world. The set of processes involved in bringing about global interconnectedness and the effect of this interconnectedness on human lives across the world is called globalization. Globalization impacts all spheres of life, including the political, economic and the cultural. However, they are closely related and hence a multidimensional approachis required to understand this complex phenomenon. This issue will focus on cultural globalization, as it is closest to the humanities and because the economic and political effects invariably impact the cultural too.
In his recent release Pandemic! Covid-19 Shakes the World, Slavoj Zizek speculates that “the lines that separate us from barbarism are drawn more and more clearly. One of the signs of civilization today is the growing perception that continuing the various wars that circle the globe as totally crazy and meaningless.

When Germans and Americans move back and forth between the continents, they participate in an important cross pollination influencing both the intellectual and artistic worlds of both cultures. Whether they came with the waves of people that journeyed westward in the wake of the German Revolution of 1848, or because of wars and economic needs, or from diaspora across Europe they brought new ideas and artistry to America. During the maturation, commercial expansion and the technological explosion of the new world in the twentieth century, programs fostering education like the Fulbright exchange, sent millions of Americans back to Germany to study, teach, report, work and to live permanently.
