Saturday, February 29, 2020

The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.

The Optics of Excess: How the Body Knows

Scholars across the humanities have embraced affect theory as a productive avenue for examining aesthetic expressions of feeling, especially those that unfold outside of or beyond representation. In doing so, many have worked to distinguish “affect” from “emotion”: Brian Massumi privileges the former as uniquely able to account for that which escapes “performed action and ascribed meaning.” This conference, however, seeks to investigate affect’s alternate and often neglected theoretical counterparts: feeling and emotion.

SUMMER 2020 –– NOSTALGIA


Marcel Proust closes the first volume of À la recherche du temps perdu with the assertion that ‘remembrance of a particular form is but regret for a particular moment; and houses, roads, avenues are as fugitive, alas, as the years.’ To Proust, nostalgia for the past, no matter how powerful, can only ever be a pale imitation of previous lived experience.

We are putting together a panel for the 2020 National Women’s Studies Association Conference that considers transnational feminist anger as expressed through digital activism in a variety of contexts.

Britt Starr, PhD candidate at the University of Maryland, theorizes a transnational youth solidarity rhetoric deployed by several young women climate activists from around the globe who use social media to build political power from the disenfranchised position of youth.

“The secret for harvesting from existence the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment is: to live dangerously! Build your cities on the slopes of Vesuvius!” ~ Nietzsche

 “I have marine feet and Vesuvian eyes, and this belonging to a universe that is land, sea, and lava, my allegiance to a world, not only is a poetic inclination but, in its instinct, a resonant and overwhelming force” ~ Maria Orsini Natale

Located at the edge of Vancouver’s city limits, the University of British Columbia is perched on the edge of an ocean. Down an interminable set of winding stairs is Wreck Beach, and with a few more steps you are submerged in the saltwater of the sea. As a West Coast school, the possibility of submersion is always waiting at our door. What does this mean in a time of climate catastrophe and imminent sea level rise? How do we navigate relationships to the ocean, to submersion, and drowning in these chaotic times?  Submersion evokes the existence of multiple, nuanced truths and interpretations.

Southeast Asia is the most densely populated region in the world, where neighboring states are political and economic heavyweights, leading players in a globalized world, and small countries that retain their distinctive appearance and style. It is a cauldron of ethnic groups, religions, worldviews, which has given rise to many alternative ways of integrating traditions and modernity.

In particular, Asian media, especially electronic ones, and social networks such as Chinese Weibo, WeiChat, Tencent and Qzone, South Korean Naver, and Japanese Line can serve as an example of such integration.

Critique in the Postcolonial Anthropocene Special Session at the 2021 MLA Convention  The 'postcolonial anthropocene', as the relationship of decentered human subjects with various forms of non-human lives and materialities in the postcolony, offers opportunities to interrogate new and unique forms of the anthropocene in postcolonial contexts. It leads to a range of questions provoked by the inhabitation of a postcolonial contemporary, thus reasserting the fragility of the human and its relationship to the environment as subject and object. Upon such a premise, how do we adapt the traditions of critique inherited from the twentieth century for this new understanding of the postcolonial?

2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of Sir Walter Scott, a writer whose creativity affected the worlds of poetry and prose for generations.  He also played an important role in the study of government, justice, and historiography.  His writings was a primary source of operatic librettin in the 19th century, and his impact on the worlds of music, art, theatre, and jurisprudence lasted well into the 20th century.  In recent years, there has been a revival of interest in his work, and his birthday willl draw further attention to the creations of this polymath.
