Every society experiences growth as it tries to move from a traditional agrarian one to a more industrialized one. Growth is the only constant in society where it occurs both qualitatively and quantitatively. While population growth, agricultural growth etc. may be considered to be a quantitative growth, urban growth, societal growth etc. may be considered to be qualitative growth. This steady growth also implies that the sustainable development of all societies is crucial. To balance the growth and sustainability in the changing society itself is a complex process and requires a comprehensive study with respect to the growth of population, economic, urban growth and so on.

*Seeking participants for a proposed roundtable for RSA 2024* In recent decades, race has been firmly established as a significant category and rich site of analysis in the early modern world. Religion is an essential part of this story. Christian doctrine was the lens through which European explorers, colonizers, and slaveholders understood somatic and cultural difference and, subsequently, the means by which they justified their violent and extractive practices, including the institution of slavery.

Ever since the early days of applied linguistics, LSP studies, and functional approaches, the notion of text genre has been pervasive in translation studies. However, it is only in recent years that generic features and their treatment in translation have gained a more prominent position among the researchers’ interests (e.g. B.J. Woodstein, Translation and Genre, Cambridge University Press, 2022).

The implementation of the Production Code in 1934 established a pre- and post-classic Hollywood era. From 1934 onward, the studios submitted their productions to some internal control to ensure the conformity of contents and guarantee their commercial viability at a time when ideological and religious elites were actively trying to enforce the respect of moral principles.

From the Kennedy assassination to the moon landing hoax and QAnon, the United States have witnessed myriad conspiracy theories throughout their history. While the US is, of course, not alone in its love for conspiracies, conspiratorial rhetoric and conspiracy theories have been a fixture of US culture and politics for over two centuries. But even to this day, conspiracy theories are evoked both seriously and humorously from the political realm to popular culture, shaping public discourse and challenging established narratives.

From a Paradise-only State to the Quotidian: Untangling 'Plenty' from 'Surplus'

Saturday, September 30, 2023

In capitalism’s surplus economy, to “have plenty” frequently appears to have no bounds. The pursuit for plenty at times indistinguishable from the insatiable appetite for excess, it takes on the (ut)optics of capitalism. To have plenty becomes synonymous with the surplus and excess only available to those who wield the most power, hoard the greatest wealth.

“Plenty,” writes Tony Morrison, “in a world of excess and attending greed, which tilts resources to the rich and forces others to envy, is an almost obscene feature of contemporary paradise. This world of outrageous, shameless wealth squatting, hulking, preening before the dispossessed, the very idea of ‘plenty’ as Utopian ought to make us tremble” (xiv).

For over a century, studies of the medieval epic in romance languages have focused on questions of genesis, transmission, themes, symbols, and motifs, but the contributions from the non-human—but very real—natural world to this literature remains under-represented. These epics bear witness to a profound understanding of the inter-relatedness of all life forms and to the consequences of its denial. This session invites scholars from diverse disciplines to reconsider medieval romance epic traditions that reaffirm the bond between the human and non-human, and that address any human eclipse due to the discounting of the natural world.

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

NEMLA
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

deadline for submissions:

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 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

re:visions journal, Freie Universität Berlin
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 7, 2023

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.
