The Child of the Future Call for Paper ProposalsDeadline for submission: January 5th, 2022 University of Cambridge, St John's College | Thursday June 30th – Friday July 1st, 2022 "...the symbiont children developed a complex subjectivity composed of loneliness, intense sociality, intimacy with nonhuman others, specialness, lack of choice, fullness of meaning, and sureness of future purpose." (Haraway, 2016, Staying With The Trouble, p.149) After living through a once-in-a-generation pandemic, whilst in the midst of a slowly-evolving climate crisis, our expectations about what the future of humanity will look like have been called into serious question.

In the form of memoirs, autobiographies, diaries or correspondence, or given a literary spin as autofiction and biofiction, the experiences of East and South-East European women during wartimes and under the oppressive regimes of the twentieth century (a period laden with contrasts, which in the West was hailed as “acentury of women”, Rowbotham 1997, but also framed as an “age of testimony”, Felman and Laub 1992) have been surfacing in the past two decades. The transmission of these narratives followed sinuous paths, taking both verbal and non-verbal forms, relying on both “filial” and “affiliative” networks (Hirsch 2012), and coming from both female victims and female perpetrators (Schwab 2010).

College students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or other learning disabilities are frequently allowed to complete examinations and assignments under separate rules or even in a separate, distraction-reduced setting. For example, although separate room test accommodations are believed to provide students with equal access to testing and thereby improve performance, little experimental research has examined their effects on actual test/essay scores. Even less research and scholarship focus on the location of testing and the impact of testing centers on students with various documented disabilities.

FILM REVIEWS FOR THE QUINT
We are seeking chapters for an edited collection on the popular Canadian sitcom, Schitt’s Creek, which had a meteoric rise in the U.S. after airing on Netflix. Schitt’s Creek has been a cultural force with its catchphrases, meme-able moments, and Emmy awards. There is much to unpack to understand the show's popularity and its impact, and, in this edited book collection, we will focus on three central themes: love, place, and identity.
Underlying questions of the project include but are not limited to:

Due to the continued presence of Covid, our conference this year will be conducted in a hybrid format. Our theme for this year's conference is“de/Constructing Environments and Embodying Communities.”The idea of environments and communities can be interpreted in a variety of interdisciplinary modes. Despite ongoing climate and public health crises, the renewal of shared spaces asks us to interrogate how our environments and communities are constructed.

Planetary Drifts—Methodology, Technology, and the Creative Imagination in the Age of Planetary Transformation
This seminar departs from the idea that we need a clearer understanding of elemental forms—traditional and non-traditional—that are in different stages of becoming formless (loss, disappearance, transmutation etc.). On the one hand, we build up on the critical genealogy of the formless (l’informe), a concept once popularized by Bataille in the surrealist journal Documents (1929-30) and later taken up by Bataille’s readers, most famously by Rosalind Krauss & Yves-Alain Bois (1997) and Georges Didi-Huberman (1995). While, on the other hand, we also welcome proposals that conceptualize the formless through different disciplinary vantage points and bring it to bear on the question of elemental forms.
Call For Submissions
