Reminder: Special Issue of Lamar Journal of the Humanities-- 9/11 and Its Aftermath

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 1, 2022

The Lamar Journal of the Humanities, a peer-reviewed, scholarly indexed interdisciplinary journal, invites papers for its 2021-22 Special Issue on “9/11 and Its Aftermath.” 

The 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 offers a timely opportunity to reflect on the tremendous influence that fateful morning has had over the last two decades. Technically the new century began on the first day of 2000, and the new millennium on the first day of 2001, but the new world arrived on that Tuesday—a world that, for better or worse, we largely still inhabit. It is in this spirit that we dedicate our 2021-22 issue to scholarly examinations of 9/11 and its aftermath, associations, and phenomena.

Anti-Oedipus at Fifty (PCA/ACA, Philosophy and Culture Area, panel/roundtable) EXTENDED DEADLINE

updated: 
Tuesday, November 30, 2021 - 5:41pm
Philosophy and Culture Area, Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association (Annual Convention, conducted virtually, April 13-16, 2022, http://pcaaca.org/area/philosophy-and-culture)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 23, 2021

Synopsis: Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia turns fifty in 2022. Awash as we are in libidinally-driven fantasy systems that reify pathological desire and injury as mythology, paranoid distortion as reality, and the resulting pair as ideology weaponized as moral justice, Anti-Oedipus would appear to be as urgent today as it was a half-century ago. The proposed session would be an occasion to explore it anew, both in its own right, and in terms of its enduring influence and importance.

All approaches are welcome.

As early as the 1920’s, Robert Musil remarked on the enormous effort it takes to stand still in a world that demands constant motion. Reflecting on the zooming street he sees through his window,the protagonist of Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften comments:

“Könnte man die Sprünge der Aufmerksamkeit messen, die Leistungen der Augenmuskeln, die Pendelbewegungen der Seele und alle die Anstrengungen, die ein Mensch vollbringen muss, um sich im Fluß einer Straße aufrecht zu halten, es käme vermutlich… eine Größe heraus, mit der verglichen die Kraft, die Atlas braucht, um die Welt zu stemmen.”

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy: The Intersectionality of Music and Deviance
Editor:Sylvia M DeSantis

This volume will explore the avenues through which 20th century musicians, and their enthused audiences, created necessarily deviant cultural movements. From the optimism engendered by the Big BandEra to socially justice-mindedGrunge in the ‘90s, musicians have used their stage power to resist, reward, and recreate long-standing cultural codes.

Drawing on the ASA conference theme “The Roof is on Fire,” this session invokes the phenomenon of book burnings to launch a broader conversation about the politicization of children’s media and the category of childhood itself — especially in debates about what materials children can and cannot encounter in domestic, institutional, and public spaces. For example, how is childhood being deployed in the targeted disinformation campaigns over Critical Race Theory?

Sapienza Summer School 2022: "The Cultural Heritage and Memory of Totalitarianism", II Edition.

updated: 
Monday, November 22, 2021 - 7:26pm
Sapienza Università di Roma
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 15, 2022

The Cultural Heritage and Memory of Totalitarianism explores the legacy of Fascism in Italy blending unique in situ visits to art, architecture and historical monuments led by international experts and classes on literature, film and culture led by Sapienza faculty. The goal is to broaden the scholarly assessment of the period and to suggest innovative curricula for students in the humanities, who are also interested in working in museums and cultural institutes in Italy and abroad. The heritage of Fascism will be approached in the context of Nazism and Stalinism, and framed within the broader scenario of European colonialism. Special focus will be given to the analysis of totalitarianism’s influence on postcolonial dictatorships and post-WWII culture.
