Forming Place, Placing Form

Place—as both geographical locale demarcated by boundaries, and as a site of experience naturalized through ideological functions—has been transformed by as well as articulated through artistic practices. Place in cultural texts is codetermined by locatedness and agency. And it is when land as the reserve of identity is threatened by colonial and neo-colonial extensions of empire, transportational foreshortening of distances, and technocratic domination of ethnicities, for example, that place finds reciprocal formal expression in modes such as collage, montage, prosodic experimentations, and narrative hybridity. Such representational practices stand as testimony to the experience of place as the very possibility of movement.

ACLA 2017 – Crossing the Anglo-Hispanic Divide: Modernist Women Writers and Artists beyond Frontiers

updated:

Between approximately 1880 and 1945, women involved in modernist and avant-garde circles frequently crossed the cultural and linguistic frontiers dividing the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds—in Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, and across the Atlantic. Driven by crucial historical and political events such as World War I and Word War II, the Mexican Revolution, and the Spanish Civil War, as well as by reasons of artistic, literary, and aesthetic exploration, many women writers and artists decided, or saw themselves forced, to go beyond frontiers. Indeed, some remained permanently ‘in transit’ across national and other sorts of boundaries, experiencing the trauma of exile.

Entangled Poetics: Mediating Ecology

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:49pm
ACLA 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

This is a call for The American Comparative Literature Association's 2017 Annual Meeting, which will take place at Utrecht University in Utrecht, the Netherlands July 6-9, 2017. It means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow’s notion of entanglement, i.e., a “condition of overlapping recurrences,” the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena.

The US presidential election of 2016 is scheduled for 8 November 2016, where the 45th President of the United States will likely be determined. Discussions and debates surrounding the event have been charged, to say the least, but we feel that this also an excellent opportunity to cut through the hype and the rhetoric to explore the nature and depictions of elections, both within reality and in fiction.
