(Deadline Approaching) SF and Societal Vulnerability: Fragility, Collapse, and Transformation

COVID showed us what we already knew, how fragile global capitalist societies are and how unresilient they become when the structures get shocked. Some of those structures deserve to be destroyed (authoritarianism, nationalism, racism, colonialism, labor exploitation, e.g.); others need to be shored up or replaced with even better institutions and practices (healthcare, the planetary ecosystem, wealth equity, social justice, e.g.). When these fragile structures fail, their failures disproportionately affect those least able to bear the harm. And, around the world, the harmful effects of exploitative structures are repeatedly discriminatorily directed.

Becoming-Transhuman: The Machine Is Us (And the dash is Deleuzian)

Continuing an ongoing philosophical conversation about the order of rank and value, media theorist and evolutionary biologist Donna Haraway states in A Cyborg Manifesto that the classifications of human, machine, and animal species blur if one examines them at the genetic or molecular level; the order and rank of human supremacy dissolves. In the late 19th century following the acceptance of Darwin’s theory of evolution, how were the fuzzy lines between humans, animals, and machines drawn and by whom? At what point do we, as humans, become transhuman—enhanced by technology?

Reimagining #MeToo in South Asia And the Diaspora

At the center of the #MeToo movement lie survivor testimonies, which demystify victim-shaming, victim-blaming, and legitimizing the victim-survivor's testimony as the unquestionable truth. In the South Asian context, such testimonies are still a taboo, which leads to victim-survivors refusing to share and relive their experiences and narratives even if they have the means and access to do so. Our panel seeks to problematize the #MeToo movement in order to reimagine and contextualize it in South Asia and the South Asian diaspora as a much-needed intervention to examine the implications of a transnational feminist movement.

"You have shown me a strange image, and they are strange prisoners. Like ourselves, I replied; and they see only their own shadows, or the shadows of one another, which the fire throws on the opposite wall of the cave?" (Plato, The Republic)

“Allegorie entsteht, wenn der Verstand sich vorlügt, er habe Phantasie.” Allegory occurs when the mind betrays and tells itself it has imagination. (Hebbel, Diary 1840, translation added)

"Alternative” Medicine in the Eighteenth-Century

American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 3, 2022

Competing concepts of “medicine” and “healing” abound, with roots in our period; what might we think of as “alternative” medicine? Competing conceptions of medicine were proposed by Bruonians (John Brown’s binary of stimulant vs sedative) and Cullenians (followers of William Cullen), and yet another by Samuel Hahnemann (the law of similars, the law of the minimal dose). We might consider physiological interventions (surgeries, purgings) in contrast with more palliative approaches aimed at restoring “nature’s balance.” The origins of obstetrics (and its displacement of midwives), anatomical dissection and pathology (and their relation to criminality), and mesmerism are linked to famous male figures but also their critics.

Call for Book Chapters: "A Vain Talent (?): Anne Brontë and the Question of Female Artistry

updated: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022 - 11:16pm
Vernon Press
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2022

We are seeking chapter submissions for an edited anthology on Anne Brontë and the question of female artistry. Though interest and scholarship in Anne has grown in recent years, the youngest Brontë sister is still the least known and researched. Her bicentennial in 2020 was interrupted by the pandemic, and so there was not the same celebration and promotion of her life and work as her sisters.

 

This anthology seeks chapters on the question of female artistry as it relates to Anne’s life and work. Topics may include (but are not limited to):

 

  • The art (paintings, sketches, etc.) of Anne Brontë

  • Anne Brontë’s artistry as an author

Over the past two decades, several institutions have emerged that collect, preserve, and make available for study obsolete media-technological artifacts and apparatuses: the Media Archaeological Fundus at Humboldt University, the online Museum of Obsolete Media, and the Media Archaeology Lab at CU Boulder are only a few of the most prominent examples.

Recasting the Bygone Witch: Examining Strength in Preservation (NeMLA 2023)

updated: 
Wednesday, August 31, 2022 - 3:43pm
Panel at NeMLA 2023, March 23-26, 2023, Niagara Falls NY
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

From Sabrina to Supreme, there are plentiful modern representations of the witch in popular culture, each exuding singular or group-sourced power borne from traditions of centuries-past, as manifested in literature, television, film, or local lore. But what about the lesser-known witches, those who practice and represent branches of witchcraft rarely examined within the subcultural analysis or fandom?

This panel examines portrayals of lesser-known witches and how their quiet unconventionality, even within the broader occult subculture, might inform scholarship, practice, and preservation. What can we learn by examining lesser-known witches or unconventional representations of the witch?

‘Toxic’! Toxicity In-Between the Humanities and Natural Sciences // 18 Nov. 2022 (09.00-17.00 CET)

 

Toxicity and intoxication surround us: If anything, the resurgence of the terms in the late 2010s reminds us of this statement’s basic truth. Toxic masculinity, for example, has become a rallying cry against problematic gender norms, while Britney Spears’ 2003 mega-hit ‘Toxic’ has become a queer anthem conjuring the ‘poison paradise’. The future of our planet is decided at the dead banks of toxic rivers, with people living on toxic soil and drowning in an increasing mass of toxic waste. In the Western world, lifestyle-gurus promise ‘mental detox’ while an opioid crisis ravages the United States.
