GEO Conference 2023-24 Call for Papers: Displacement

The University of Maryland’s Graduate English Organization invites proposals relating to the theme of “Displacement” for our 17th annual conference, to be held hybrid/in-person on March 8th, 2024.

Displacement can refer to the forced migration and movements of peoples across the globe over centuries. From slavery to the internal displacement of peoples and the contemporary refugee crisis, the term allows us to connect the literary with the cultural and the political in myriad ways.

Contemporary Literary Culture conference

Our meeting will be devoted to exploring the main problems of contemporary literary culture. Embracing the foundational principles of Stefan Żółkiewski and equally foundational, though alternative, suggestions by Janusz Sławiński, we perceive it as an integral part of global social/cultural communication (the roles of writers, models, and the circulation of literature) along with specialized infrastructure (publishing, institutions, magazines/media, the literary market – the so-called literary life). It is also a dynamic system of author-reader relations and a set of dispositions/skills (knowledge, taste, competence) enabling a sense-making engagement with literary texts.

The primary aim of this edited volume is to explore the word ‘Literature’ in the age of AI. Etymologically, the Latin word litteratura is derived from littera (Latin) meaning the ‘smallest element of alphabetical writing’ (Klarer 1). The word ‘literature,’ then means, any writing e.g., a medical prescription, usage instruction written on the bottle of shampoo or maybe a cautionary warning on the packet of cigarettes. To specify the particular type of literature we use the term ‘Creative Literature’ (called the Literature of Power by Rees).

Sacred Cultures in Politics

Sacred Cultures in Politics, a collection of scholarly articles, seeks to reveal sacred and/or religious rhetoric serving as persuasive tools in the vast arena of political activism. In his Homo Sacer: Sovereign Power and Bare Life, Giorgio Agamben challenges religious institutions to use their persuasive powers not for priestly privilege but “to make a new possible” for humanity. In a similar spirit, this collection seeks to make transparent both the rhetorical systems and their use in local, national, regional, or global political arenas.
