The Cinema of Apichatpong Weerasethakul
For a collection under contract with Lexington Books, we seek submissions that address both historical and theoretical perspectives of “Hallyu” that specifically intersect with issues regarding gender, sexuality, and stereotype. We anticipate that the edited volume will be cross-disciplinary and bring insights from international scholars. We welcome papers that address new research and cultural products that are relevant and current. Space for visuals is limited so non-textual elements should be included sparingly. Abstracts are due August 31, 2020 and acceptances will go out September 15.
Completed essays are due in Microsoft Word by December 1, 2020 and should be around 10,000 words in English.
Jason Moore in his introduction to Anthropocene or Capitalocene? (2016) remarks, “Capitalocene signifies capitalism as a way of organizing nature’s a multispecies, situated, capitalist world-ecology.” Capitalocene, therefore, stands for a motion, a reproducing technology, that manifests and re-manifests human life and relationalities between human and nature under the logic of aggressive material dispossessions and accumulations. The examinations and resistance against the functioning of capitalocene are especially crucial in facing the public health crisis one would remember as the COVID-19 and the racial conflicts intertwine with its narrative with the perception of the pandemic.
“No Culture can live if it attempts to be exclusive.” - Mahatma Gandhi
‘Diversity is strength, not weakness,’is an idea rapidly fading away. There are several thousand cultures, and several hundred belief systems in the world. However, only a few communities with their socio-cultural, geographical, and racial positionsdominate, the rest exist in socio-cultural outskirts. The saying, ‘majority Wins’has dangerously become, ‘minority wears away.’ While, this tendency is flourishing at the cost of secularism and pluralism at a collective level, it is causing dehumanization, hate, and violence, at individual level. Covert racism, socio-cultural hegemony, nationalism, partisanism, are paving way for totalitarianism.

Remainder from Epistemology: Exploring the Discursive Possibilities of Aporia
Man has not been able to describe himself as a configuration in the episteme without thought at the same time discovering, both in itself and outside itself, at the borders yet also in its very warp and woof, an element of darkness, an apparently inert density in which it is embedded, an unthought which it contains entirely, yet in which it is also caught.
– Michel Foucault
We are pleased to announce a two-day international conference “At the Crossroads: Narratives of the Excluded.” In light of the COVID-19 crisis, the Conference will take place online.

Postcritique and the Event of Literature: Exploring the Limits of Subjectivity
Theorist Cathy Caruth popularized literary trauma theory in the mid-1990s, arguing that in the event of psychic trauma, “while the images of traumatic reenactment remain absolutely accurate and precise, they are largely inaccessible to conscious recall and control” (Caruth 151). Objections to Caruthian trauma theory often take one of two forms; scholars either object to the underlying theory of psychic trauma, or they object because of the limitations of psychic trauma.
In the aftermath of the man-made catastrophes, such as genocides, the artistic production does not only seek to grasp the reality behind the atrocities, but also to convey that reality as it is experienced. Language functions as medium for deconstructing this brutal reality that exceeds meaning. Thus, language could be situated among the most crucial components of the communication process since it functions both as catalyzer and obstacle for the embodiment of the historical reality. This panel explores the diverse discourses in which genocides are understood and represented in contemporary artistic production. What are the linguistic, moral, political, and sociological functions of language during and/or in the aftermath of the genocides?
Siblings on Stage, Page and Screen
Date: Saturday 16th January 2021
Though ubiquitous across stage, page and screen, images of siblings remain an under-researched and under-discussed phenomenon. The relationships, rivalries, conflicts and collaborations between brothers and sisters are frequently overlooked, and yet offer the possibility for fascinating discussion and insight into a wide range of cultural texts.
While the theme for this year’s NEMLA conference proposes the dyad of “tradition and innovation,” some recent work in the Digital Humanities has skirted these two poles. An influential forum on “Ethics, Theories, and Practices of Care” in the 2019 edition of Debates in the Digital Humanities explores the status of care relations, maintenance and repair, the embrace of lowered-innovation levels, and the turn away from compulsive productivity in the sphere of Digital Humanities scholarship and pedagogy. These concerns follow a similar wave of interest in care and care relations in literary studies.
