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.

Optimistic Apocalypses: The End as a New Beginning, March 4, 2022

Apocalypse implies a number of fraught theoretical terms, such as Freud’s death drive or the concept of the Anthropocene. Apocalypse, as a genre and a term, invites capacious understandings and definitions. To ground apocalypse in the past, present, and future, we can look to Kathryn Yusoff’s conception of the Anthropocene as “a politically infused geology and scientific/popular discourse [that] is just now noticing the extinction it has chosen to continually overlook in the making of its modernity and freedom” (Preface xiii).

We invite proposals for papers, panels, roundtable discussions, creative writing readings or workshops, and multi-media art submissions. Although priority will be given to proposals that address the conference theme, we recognize the ambiguity of our theme and welcome all possible interpretations.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

“Myth and Art” will explore the interrelation of the multiple functions of myth, literature, and art, as well as the interpretation of mythological narratives and their visual depictions. The main approach will be inter-textual and inter-media in nature and the contributors will grapple with and attempt to answer several questions: How do artists incorporate myths into their own works of art? How are the combinations of myth and art interpreted by ancient and modern day spectators? Are there differences and similarities in those interpretations? What factors (psychological, religious, political, financial, etc.) influenced the selection of the myth and the artistic medium?
