Utopic Identity and Liminality in African American Literature

This panel seeks presentations about the proclivity of African American racial space. That is, this panel is interested in when and where conceptions of spatial race formalities are conducted. We can think of “space” as time, place, and movement—the constant liminal changing of identities. This panel invites abstracts, of no more than 250 words, for presentations on African American literature at the Midwest Modern Language Association conference. Some topics might include:

Since the signing of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, the Arctic (understood here as the circumpolar region around and north of the Arctic Circle) has entered worldwide public discussion to an unprecedented extent. As a global climate archive and the site of various scrambles for resources, it has become the centre of attention within debates on climate change and global geopolitics.

MMLA 2021: Countering the Culture in Contemporary Fiction

Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, May 1, 2021

Marginalized groups may be contrary to the dominant culture within a society through their very own existence. In cultures where those who reinforce divisions may seek to ostracize the Other by portraying them in a negative light, counter-hegemonic representations of the marginalized can be revolutionary. This panel will examine how non-dominant cultures in contemporary literature are depicted in the context of the dominant. 

 

Central questions include:

  • What makes something (e.g. an action, a person's/group's identity) within a dominant culture subversive?

  • What are the benefits and repercussions of acting against the collective conscience?

 CFP: Migration, Adaptation and Memory 

How do we remember and represent our migration experiences? Who is involved in these processes? How does history remember these events? What helps migrants and societies to adapt? The significance of these and related questions have made their way into our daily lives, from the refugee crisis to policy decisions, individual psychotherapy to (re)building identities, communities, and memories. 

1921-2021: 100 years with and without Kropotkin

International Kropotkin Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 31, 2021

Piotr Alekseevich Kropotkin (1842-1921) was one of the most prominent advocates of anarchism during his adult life, but also a famous intellectual and activist in Europe and further afield. In this centenary year of his death, we welcome you to join us for a discussion about his legacy, influence and relevance today. This conference will discuss his life and his work, but also his afterlife. Since February 1921, the world has lived without Kropotkin, but in many ways his ideas and his legacy persist. This conference seeks to specify, debate, contest, and carry on that legacy.

A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?
