Transgressive Bodies and Social Orders

Conference, 07.06.–09.06.2022, Ruhr-University Bochum

Body practices imply moments of transgression, be it in the active or in the passive crossing of borders. The conference aims to explore the topic of transgressive bodies beyond classical disciplinary boundaries and addresses scholars from the humanities and social sciences, but also natural scientists and physicians who either already conduct research at the interface with the social sciences and/or are interested in an interdisciplinary exchange.

Taylor Swift, one of the best known musical artists of her generation, has left an indelible mark on popular culture and the collective consciousness. Although Swift is a perennial subject in the media, cast in both a positive and a negative light, few professional scholars have considered her work.

Anti-Oedipus at Fifty (PCA/ACA, Philosophy and Culture Area, panel/roundtable) EXTENDED DEADLINE

Synopsis: Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia turns fifty in 2022. Awash as we are in libidinally-driven fantasy systems that reify pathological desire and injury as mythology, paranoid distortion as reality, and the resulting pair as ideology weaponized as moral justice, Anti-Oedipus would appear to be as urgent today as it was a half-century ago. The proposed session would be an occasion to explore it anew, both in its own right, and in terms of its enduring influence and importance.

All approaches are welcome.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 4, 2022

In the conclusion to Complaint! (2021), Sara Ahmed suggests that “even going through an exhausting of processes can have creative potential.” As much as exhaust signals finality, then, it also acquiesces to a sort of futurity and, in Ahmed’s understanding, even hopefulness: what can develop after we have exhausted all possibilities?

As a verb, “to exhaust” signals depletion and overconsumption as well as fatigue and overexertion. We have exhausted, and we are exhausted; threats of environmental and economic

Each year, Rhetoric Society Quarterly publishes a special issue, the aims of which are to help set the intellectual agenda in rhetorical studies, encourage focused statements on timely topics in rhetorical studies by scholars working in related areas, attract participation by top scholars, and stimulate scholarly activity within the Rhetoric Society of America, such as pre-conference colloquia, convention sessions, and workshops. Recent special issues have addressed relations between rhetoric and disability (2020), demagoguery (2019), and the more-than-human (2017), to name only three examples. As Rhetoric Society Quarterly’s incoming associate editor for special issues, I am pleased to invite proposals for the 2023 special issue.

A Film Scholarship without Films? Reimagining Israeli Cinema History through the Archive

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

In the introduction to the 2007 anthology Looking Past the Screen, Eric Smoodin points to a methodological lacuna within the conventional form of film historiography. This form – which “has at least since the mid-1950s been dominated by the study of the film itself, often organized around genre, nation, or authorship” – is not without its great benefits for historical knowledge; yet by emphasizing cinematic text over context, it has also missed out on important historical insight that may be garnered from closer scrutiny of nonfilmic archival holdings.

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy: The Intersectionality of Music and Deviance
Editor:Sylvia M DeSantis

This volume will explore the avenues through which 20th century musicians, and their enthused audiences, created necessarily deviant cultural movements. From the optimism engendered by the Big BandEra to socially justice-mindedGrunge in the ‘90s, musicians have used their stage power to resist, reward, and recreate long-standing cultural codes.
