CALL FOR PAPERS
Workshop on Migration & Health: Perspectives from South Asia
October 12 – 13, 2023
Seattle, Washington

Brief description:

Human migration is a defining issue of our time and is increasingly recognized as a global public health priority. Migration has long been linked to the transmission of diseases and health risks, especially in the era of epidemics which do not respect international borders. Scholarship on health and migration has examined the social, political, and economic production of diseases and their interaction with processes of migration, transit, legal status, and migrants’ incorporation into the places to which they migrate, over time – as well as their effects on the places of origin.

Insignificant Notations: Thinking Surplus with the New York School

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

This panel invites papers that theorize the surplus of a literary object as something accidentally produced by that object. What is the substance and effect of this surplus? How is surplus figured in poetry, especially in poetics in or working in relation to the New York School? Following Stephen Best's assertion that "beauty is a force of erasure," papers might contribute theories of beauty in or as surplus. If art implies a frame but beauty can also erase that frame, papers might theorize framing in poetry and consider poetics that both constitute and move to exceed a frame. What else might constitute or figure surplus in poetry? Do New York School poetics figure a surplus of discourse or perhaps of thought?

In his 2001 book The Postcolonial Exotic, Graham Huggan describes book publishing as an “alterity industry” profiting from “the commodification of cultural difference” (12), in which authors of underrepresented backgrounds must balance their authentic stories against the norms and expectations that inherently shape traditionally published work.

Self translation: brokering originality in hybrid cultures

This call for papers aims at bringing efforts geared towards the study of a much-neglected field of translation which is self-translation. Self-translation may look transparent and easy in terms of definition: an author or a writer translates his work into another language. This of course involves a bilingual attempt: an author writes a text in Arabic and then translates it into English or any other language. What are the problematics involved in this attempt is the main theme of this call for paper which will gather contributions in a publishable special issue once the reviews are completed.

Contemporary translation theory reflects the breakdown in the traditional dichotomy “author” versus “translator,” since it views the translator no longer as a subordinate figure to the author, but as an equal co-creator of the literary work, who rewrites the original text in another language and thus actively participates in the creative process. How does attention to this changing relationship between the author and the translator help with understanding of the creation and interpretation of meaning and the subsequent longevity of the translated work in a new environment?

he proposed session will analyze the complex images of women in Dostoevsky novels, focusing on the archetypal female characters in his major novels vis-a-vis other Russian realist novels, such as the works of Leo Tolstoy and Turgenev, investigating social and cultural gender norms of that period. The papers focusing on the image of femme fatale in the European novels will also be considered.

The proposed interdisciplinary panel examines the rich relationship of music and the literary works within various European literatures focusing primarily on the period from mid-nineteenth to the twentieth century, but presentations within a broader time frame will also be considered. We invite a wide range of papers investigating the author’s technique of representing music in literature, examining aesthetic, historical and cultural interactions between music and literature, audience and performers, as well as the relationship between the author and the composer, in real or fictional form

Call for Contributions: Pseudomorphism

Pseudomorphism, a term introduced to art history by Erwin Panofsky in 1964, refers to the ostensible similarity between two works of art that actually emerge from distinct historical and artistic lineages. More recently, Yve-Alain Bois tried to revive the notion for the study of modern and contemporary art, while Pamela Lee’s work shows how the phenomena is becoming increasingly widespread, putting forth ‘a transhistorical, and perhaps transdisciplinary, agenda in the process’. This issue of re:visions invites graduate students and other scholars, researchers, writers, and artists to think through issues related to likeness/similarity and test bold comparisons, reflecting on the ambivalent nature of pseudomorphism.

The global and digital connectivity of recent years has transformed creative writing infrastructure and practice around the world.  Recent decades have seen a number of critical and popular publications exploring the history and practice of creative writing, from Marc McGurl’s “The Program Era: Postwar Fiction and the Rise of Creative Writing” (2011) to Lisa Jaillant’s Literary Rebels: A History of Creative Writing in Anglo-American Universities (2022). Yet, as these titles suggest, the critical focus has been on US and UK courses.

Death in Public

In “Sex in Public,” Berlant and Warner urged us to consider how sex—something seemingly private—is indeed “mediated by publics.” Similar to Berlant and Warner, we investigate how the concept of death, broadly defined, was determined, imagined, augmented, and regulated as a public spectacle throughout the nineteenth century.
