Call for Papers: Cinematic Bodies

Sunday, October 11, 2020

The body on the screen and the body of the screen have always formed a compelling and productive pairing. From apparatus theory to production and exhibition histories, these two conceptualizations of cinematic bodies remain valuable avenues for reflecting on the use of images, their visibility, materiality, and presentation. As cinema continues to fracture and expand across our cell phones and living spaces, the screen is increasingly tangible, mobile, and ubiquitous. Like the mobile toys and popular illusions preceding modern cinema, these forms of new media present particular bodies on particular screens.

Unreliable Narrators

Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Unreliable narrators are storytellers that the reader (or viewer) cannot trust. They most often occur in narratives that are written from a first-person point of view. Unreliable narrators deceive purposefully in some cases and unintentionally in others. As a result, the reader/viewer is left with the sense that something is “off.”

[Deadline extended] Community Forming Under The Capitalocene

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 7, 2020

Jason Moore in his introduction to Anthropocene or Capitalocene? (2016) remarks, “Capitalocene signifies capitalism as a way of organizing nature’s a multispecies, situated, capitalist world-ecology.” Capitalocene, therefore, stands for a motion, a reproducing technology, that manifests and re-manifests human life and relationalities between human and nature under the logic of aggressive material dispossessions and accumulations. The examinations and resistance against the functioning of capitalocene are especially crucial in facing the public health crisis one would remember as the COVID-19 and the racial conflicts intertwine with its narrative with the perception of the pandemic.

Trauma: Explorations in Culture (NeMLA 2021)

Courtney Mullis / NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Theorist Cathy Caruth popularized literary trauma theory in the mid-1990s, arguing that in the event of psychic trauma, “while the images of traumatic reenactment remain absolutely accurate and precise, they are largely inaccessible to conscious recall and control” (Caruth 151). Objections to Caruthian trauma theory often take one of two forms; scholars either object to the underlying theory of psychic trauma, or they object because of the limitations of psychic trauma.

NeMLA: Genocides and Language

updated: 
Thursday, August 6, 2020 - 10:34am
Didem Alkan
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

In the aftermath of the man-made catastrophes, such as genocides, the artistic production does not only seek to grasp the reality behind the atrocities, but also to convey that reality as it is experienced. Language functions as medium for deconstructing this brutal reality that exceeds meaning. Thus, language could be situated among the most crucial components of the communication process since it functions both as catalyzer and obstacle for the embodiment of the historical reality. This panel explores the diverse discourses in which genocides are understood and represented in contemporary artistic production. What are the linguistic, moral, political, and sociological functions of language during and/or in the aftermath of the genocides?

Siblings on Stage, Page and Screen

Virtual Conference

Date: Saturday 16th January 2021

 

Though ubiquitous across stage, page and screen, images of siblings remain an under-researched and under-discussed phenomenon. The relationships, rivalries, conflicts and collaborations between brothers and sisters are frequently overlooked, and yet offer the possibility for fascinating discussion and insight into a wide range of cultural texts.

Rethinking Innovation: Practices of Care and Maintenance in DH Scholarship and Pedagogy

updated: 
Thursday, August 6, 2020 - 10:33am
NEMLA 2021 (Philadelphia, PA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While the theme for this year’s NEMLA conference proposes the dyad of “tradition and innovation,” some recent work in the Digital Humanities has skirted these two poles. An influential forum on “Ethics, Theories, and Practices of Care” in the 2019 edition of Debates in the Digital Humanities explores the status of care relations, maintenance and repair, the embrace of lowered-innovation levels, and the turn away from compulsive productivity in the sphere of Digital Humanities scholarship and pedagogy. These concerns follow a similar wave of interest in care and care relations in literary studies.
