Concept Note & CFP: "Articulating Urbanity: Writing the South Asian City"

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 15, 2020

While South Asian writing has primarily been concerned with national identities and macroscopic questions of modernity and tradition, urban-scale articulations of hybrid, multi-faceted senses of selfhood have become more common over the past few decades. The urban is that unpredictable, partially knowable realm of experience which inflects our everyday with multiple lexicons of meaning. Such multi-sited meaning is a hallmark of all kinds of urbanity, but in our present context in South Asia it has acquired an epochal significance given the pace at which our cities and towns are developing and perhaps even destroying themselves.

The novels of Black women authors like Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, Jamaica Kincaid, and Angie Thomas have been challenged and banned in a host of educational settings. While the “appropriateness” of the content is questioned, these Black women novelists and their characters combat censorship and the status quo to reveal the truths of Black girlhood.

EXTENDED DEADLINE (July 30, 2020): Scandal and Transgression in Twentieth-Century Transatlantic Vanguardisms

SAMLA 92: Virtual/Hybrid Format
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 30, 2020

This panel explores forms of dissent adopted by twentieth-century transatlantic avant-gardes as a means of challenging traditional genres and social codes. Since the inception of European experimentalism during the first decades of the twentieth century, a series of art movements engaged in radical production that questioned the established state of affairs. From the Cubist adoption of multiple viewpoints, through the Futurist celebration of technology and speed, the Expressionist distortion of form, to the Dadaist sense of provocation and the irrational juxtaposition of images in Surrealism, avant-garde art and literature has set precedents on an international level of exchanges.

Call for Papers for "1922 and After: A Centenary of Modernism and World Literature", Journal of Modern Literature (Indiana University Press)

 

Drawing upon anthropological, psychological, and philosophical knowledge as well as personal experiences, the high modernists wrote their now-famous classics, including The Waste Land, Ulysses, Jacob's Room, among many others, in the expanded context of a post-War generation facing the larger world via the influences upon them and the influences they and their works would create. These interrelationships among European, British, and American modernism (so-called international modernism), and the emergence of World Literature, provide the framework for the issue.

In/Visible: Designs of Social Experience

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 31, 2020

The regimes of Whiteness, heteronormativity, androcentrism, able-bodiedness or Eurocentrism have for a long time constituted the frameworks of ‘proper’, ‘successful’ or expected social conduct, organising in a normative way social communication, relations and spaces. The regimes have been shaping social life, state policies and institutions, or fields of science and arts. Social practices are imbued with preconceptions concerning race, sexuality, gender, health or ethnicity which have become so commonsensical that it takes a lot of critical effort to go beyond the normative context.

Cultures of Sexuality

Since the sexual abuse allegations against American film producer Harvey Weinstein in Oct 2017, the #metoo movement has received wide attention on social media and in public life. What this movement has reminded us is sexual abuse is deeply implicated in social/hierarchical power structures (forcing survivors to suffer violence and then hide trauma). It has also offered the possibility of speaking against sexual abuse, harassment, and violence in public and “shaming” perpetrators (as “due process” has often been painful, slow, and unfair). The movement has led to public debates on questions of patriarchy, power, nepotism, culture, clothing, ethics, and ideology.

Confronted by the 2020 public health crisis one would remember as COVID-19, the notion of Orientalism as proposed by Edward Said in 1979 calls for continuous examinations. Said defines Orientalism as “not an airy European fantasy about the Orient, but a created body of theory and practice in which, for many generations, there has been a considerable materials investment.” From the trade war and technology race between the U.S.

Literature of Crisis and Apocalypse PAMLA Panel

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Apocalyptic literature and its study have typically centered around notions of Christian eschatology, i.e. the judgement presented in the Book of Revelations. However, the aftermath of the second world war helped reshape our notions of this genre. Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has begun to examine the relations between humans and the Earth during the Anthropocene. Images of global thermonuclear war, fears of communism, and a burgeoning climate change (with its subsequent and constituent crises) have eclipsed the teleological notions of divine creation and its eventual, inexorable movement towards eschatology.

Don DeLillo and Religious Spaces PAMLA Panel

Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

The Don DeLillo Society invites abstracts on DeLillo's use of space, virtual or physical, as new religious sites. From Jack Gladney's transcendent trips to the supermarket in White Noise to Sister Edgar's implied dissolution into the virtual heaven of the internet in Underworld, religious spaces proliferate throughout DeLillo's work. Yet in contrast to the religious experience, DeLillo also suggests a destructive inversion: The Airborne Toxic Event, The Kazakh Test Site. Characters often undertake pilgrimages to mid-Western towns, art exhibits, weapons testing sites, and even city dumps. In each of these excursions, characters seek to understand a sociality between themselves and the contexts they inhabit.

Latin American Gothic Literature in its Early Stages: Trappings, Tropes, and Theories (NeMLA 2021)

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:14am
NeMLA Conference 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The Gothic is having a moment, as it tends to do in times of collective panic and uncertainty. Even Latin America, whose geographical, linguistic and historical distinctiveness have supported its all-but-exclusion from global Gothic Studies, has experienced a rise in scholarship on contemporary Gothic horror—from studies on the double and hybridity to zombies and cannibals, among others. Typically excluded from this narrative, however, are theories on the origins and early representations of the Gothic, and how regional, linguistic and historical particularities nourished a Latin American Gothic tradition that, although indebted to its European Gothic predecessors, deviated from it in unique and meaningful ways.
