                                                    Call for Book Chapters on Discourse, Meaning, and Understanding

Discourse is a term that yields several meanings to academics in the human and social sciences. It is often used to describe a formal and/or informal way of text and talk, which seeks to empower some social groups and subordinate others in the social world. This definition might sound hasty at first sight in as much as discourse per se came to signify multiple forms of knowledge, systems of thought, and perhaps most important of all, the beliefs and attitudes people hold about life, death, (co)existence and the like.

What Remains? Literature and Ethics in a Time of Crisis

updated: 
Thursday, December 7, 2023 - 4:13pm
Mid Sweden University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 16, 2024

The relation between ethics and literature became a topic of intense academic debate at the end of the twentieth century—at a time, that is, when that relation was no longer self-evident after the challenges of postcolonial, feminist, and deconstructive critique. Humanist proponents of literature’s role as an empathy engine (Nussbaum, Rorty) entered into conversation with theorists who took inspiration from the work of Jacques Derrida and Emmanuel Levinas to valorize literature as a site of singular otherness—as an occasion of ethical encounter rather than moral instruction (Attridge, Eaglestone, Miller).

Thursday, December 7, 2023 - 4:12pm
Jasleen Singh and Alex C. Valin
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2024

This panel invites researchers to consider how African American writers deploy humor within what critics have termed the “post-soul,” “post-Black,” “Black post-Blackness,” and “New Black Aesthetic” movements. Derek C. Maus, in Post-Soul Satire (2014), notes that the propensity for Black satirists to turn their critiques inward at the Black community rather than outwardly toward white institutions marks a key shift from ‘soul’ to ‘post-soul’ aesthetics.

Felicity A. Nussbaum suggests that we need to formulate new critical framings about the widened eighteenth century as well as a long one. In what ways can we widen the breadth, scale, and scope of eighteenth-century studies from a global and planetary perspective? How might we come up with ways to think about the interconnectivity among ideas, cultures, and texts that “move” beyond the boundaries of the metrapole and the margin, near and distant?

Monday, January 15, 2024

Over the last number of years, Indian classical dance traditions have seen major shifts in terms of practice, pedagogy, and performance, both ‘at home’ in India and in diaspora contexts. These changes have been intensified most recently by two primary and co-related phenomena; the global adoption of specific algorithmic social media and streaming platforms, and lockdown restrictions imposed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. What happens to the embodied physical presence on virtual platforms? How has the format of the art form been modified to fit in digital spaces? What do these transformations mean for the future of the dance forms? How are socio-political issues embedded and addressed in such spaces?
