Planetary Drifts—Methodology, Technology, and the Creative Imagination in the Age of Planetary Transformation

(ACLA 2022) The Elemental and The Formless

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

This seminar departs from the idea that we need a clearer understanding of elemental forms—traditional and non-traditional—that are in different stages of becoming formless (loss, disappearance, transmutation etc.). On the one hand, we build up on the critical genealogy of the formless (l’informe), a concept once popularized by Bataille in the surrealist journal Documents (1929-30) and later taken up by Bataille’s readers, most famously by Rosalind Krauss & Yves-Alain Bois (1997) and Georges Didi-Huberman (1995). While, on the other hand, we also welcome proposals that conceptualize the formless through different disciplinary vantage points and bring it to bear on the question of elemental forms.

Monday, November 15, 2021

Shortly after the end of WWII, the literary cultures of East-Central Europe were compelled to import the doctrine of socialist realism, which had already been active in the USSR for more than a decade. A malfunctional grafting of a would-be idealizing aesthetics and a formal pattern typical of traditional realism, the socialist realism brought along a new political novel with a limited collection of characters, narrative situations, and denouements, all projected against a overly simplified social background, painted in black and white.

Type: ConferenceDate: June 15, 2022 to June 18, 2022Location: Taipei, Taiwan

When we hear, read, or watch a narrative of a violent or traumatic event, we are often fixated on its representation. We hang on to details about location; we want to find out who the perpetrators and victims are; we want to know how many were affected; we want to investigate causes, determine consequences beyond the already known. We pursue veracity and accountability in the telling (the narrative; the means), which we hope will do justice to the told, or perhaps also to present cautionary tales for the future.

Algo-rhythms: Living in and out of sync with technology

Guest editor: Evelyn Wan

Deadline: 18 December 2021

Published: May/June 2022

 

In his One Year Performance 1980-1981 (Time Clock Piece), Tehching Hsieh imposes upon himself the task of clocking-in using punch-card technology every day, every hour, 24 hours a day, all through 365 days of the year. Forcing his corporeal self into the cold rigid regularity of mechanical clock time, he makes visible the rhythmic bind of the machine.

I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.
