Participation in Postcolonial Wor(l)ds - Postgraduate Conference

Participation both depends on and produces agency. Therefore, it is always embedded in power structures and power remains unequally distributed. Though empires are long gone, neo-colonial structures of domination continue to exploit the so-called Global South, to privilege Eurocentric knowledge traditions over non- Eurocentric knowledge, and to exclude racialized subjects or people and communities from erstwhile colonized countries from power positions. For decades, postcolonial subjects have worked against imperial forms of oppression. They continuously labor to create space for local and hitherto marginalized world views and experiences. Processes of (self-)translation produce spaces of articulation and enable participation.

Since launching its hugely popular “Countdown to Christmas” made-for-TV movie series in 2009, Hallmark has expanded its offerings of American small-town romances to include Valentine’s Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, New Year’s, and Hanukkah, as well as winter, spring, summer, fall, and “Christmas in July.” Dozens of original films are planned and shot each year, often in Canadian locations such as Vancouver and Ottawa. These now-year-round productions are formulaic, heteronormative, Christian, and overwhelmingly white—and they have been undeniably commercially successful, rocketing Hallmark to cable success and spawning imitations across multiple platforms.

MMLA - "Post-Now" in Pre- and Post-Revolutionary America

updated: 
Friday, April 8, 2022 - 2:28pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 15, 2022

The MMLA’s permanent session on American Literature pre-1870 seeks papers that engage with the conference theme, “Post-Now,” in a pre- and post-Revolutionary context. The moment of the Revolution was simultaneously a moment of explosive ideological change and continued oppression for millions of marginalized individuals in the colonies and subsequent United States. How do authors, artists, politicians, intellectuals, and writers of any background confront this division, and how are they able to propose a future for the new nation that recognizes continued tyranny in its social and political structures? Interdisciplinary and multinational perspectives welcome.

Memory: Staging, Praxis & Practice

In considering the Ars Memoriae, Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) envisioned a universe of many worlds, many dimensions. The  practice of remembering and forgetting had profound political, intellectual, social, religious and cultural consequences in the medieval and early modern world. Frequently, the past served as a legitimising force, helping to justify the actions of the present or to graph future perspectives. It was therefore vehemently contested, habitually revised and amended, or even exploited.  This two-day conference provides an opportunity for scholars to discuss the numerous ways in which memory practices influenced the pre-modern world.

Call for Articles: Linguistic hybridity in literature

Friday, October 21, 2022

The last few decades have been characterised by a growing interest in literary multilingualism. Multiple studies have examined the way linguistic diversity manifests itself in literary works, for instance focusing on multilingual practices such as code-switching. However, fewer and often isolated studies (Jacquet 1972, Gauvin 2004, Montermini 2006, Bürger-Koftis, Schweiger and Vlasta 2010, Loison-Charles 2016, etc.) have focused on linguistic hybridization in literature, a process “whereby separate and disparate entities or processes generate another entity or process (the hybrid), which shares certain features with each of its sources” (Sanchez Stockhammer 2012).

The Street and the City IV – Moments

Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:53pm

Saturday, April 30, 2022

Cities come alive and build themselves from moments. Moments we breathe in the present, moments that shape both collective and individual memories. All these memories drift from a solitary pace in a crowd, to a dialogue between us and the other united by the urb. As in Dickens’s words (1859) “a multitude of people and yet a solitude.”

This conference aims at approaching topics from the past, both nearby or further away; topics from the present, globally, locally or glocally relevant and topics from the future – real or imaginary. Munford (1961) states that “the origins of the city are obscure, a large part of its past buried or effaced beyond recovery, and its further prospects are difficult to weigh.”

According to UNICEF, children are routinely affected more seriously than adults during wartime:

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Description:

In 2015, the case of Rachel Doležal sparked a heated debate about transraciality and helped to establish an academic examination of the subject.  The scholarly consideration of transraciality is in its formative stages and this edited collection is an effort to expand and develop the existing discussion.  The first of its kind, this volume will include interdisciplinary contributions from scholars who bring a wide range of perspectives and approaches to the subject.  We are interested in chapters that help us, as an academic community, better understand transraciality as a concept or practice. 

RSA 2023 (San Juan, March 9–11): New Approaches to Early Modern Metaphor

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

“A metaphor,” wrote philosopher Monroe Beardsley in his Aesthetics (1958), “is a miniature poem, and the explication of a metaphor is a model for all explication.” Beardsley recognized the interpretive value of the trope, and metaphor offers a rich site to deepen cultural, artistic, and literary understanding of the early modern period. This panel seeks papers across disciplines that offer new theoretical frameworks for engaging with early modern metaphor. It also aims to foster transdisciplinary dialogue among panelists. Possible topics include visual metaphor, scientific and mathematical metaphor, metaphor in translation, poetic and literary metaphor, legal metaphor, Renaissance theories of metaphor, and problems of interpretation.
