Black Psychoanlayses?

updated: 
Wednesday, January 24, 2024 - 1:08pm
MLA Executive Forum: Psychology, Psychoanalysis, and Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 23, 2024

Since the “discovery” of psychoanalysis, thinkers of race (creative, intellectual, political, and clinical) have contemplated whether psychoanalytic discourses can contemplate—let alone contend—with the question of Blackness. The range of figures includes thinkers who were focused on the clinical imperative, such as Frantz Fanon, to those who more implicitly yet just as critically have inquired about the psychic life of anti-Black racism (Richard Wright, Patricia Williams, Toni Morrison, etc.). This panel seeks to outline this intellectual history of critical black thought that brings into sharp focus the tensions between psychoanalyses and race while also remarking on current interventions in the state of the field.

Book Chapter for Memory Studies in Turkey and Beyond: A Handbook by BRILL

Deniz Gündoğan İbrişim, Kadir Has University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2024

Turkey with geographical, historical, social, and cultural attributes stands as a unique laboratory for memory studies. Memory studies in turn can serve as an antidote for grappling with Turkey’s past, present, and the looming issues, challenges and crisis within and beyond its borderlands. Despite such mutual benefits, there remains a notable lack of development in memory studies within Turkish academia, and a shortage of collaborative research on the Turkish memory culture in transcultural memory studies. The underrepresentation of memory studies in the Turkish context inevitably underscores the need for research initiatives that contribute to bridging this gap through comprehensive academic resources.

Crossroads VII: Comparative Indigeneities

updated: 
Tuesday, January 23, 2024 - 1:45pm
University of Massachusetts Amherst
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 9, 2024

In the seventh edition of the Crossroads Graduate Student Conference in Comparative Literature, we aim to foreground indigeneity as a key theoretical framework for investigating and challenging systems of oppression and as an invaluable component of studies in literature, film, and other media. Indigeneity unsettles colonial mechanisms and intervenes in such contentious discourses as subjectivity, domination, and environmental collapse. By looking at indigeneities comparatively, the conference seeks to underline the intrinsic pluralism and inclusivity of such modes of thinking, to consider indigeneity as a series of non-systems rather than a monolith, and to bring to the forefront the possibility of vibrant solidarity.

Unruly Borders 

“Borders are set up to define the places that are safe and unsafe, to distinguish us from them. A border is a dividing line, a narrow strip along a steep edge. A borderland is a vague and undetermined place created by the emotional residue of an unnatural boundary. It is in a constant state of transition. The prohibited and forbidden are its inhabitants.” Gloria E. Anzaldúa, Borderlands/La Frontera
