WASTELANDS

34TH EUROPEAN ASSOCIATION FOR AMERICAN STUDIES CONFERENCE

UNED, Madrid 6-8 April 2022

The year 2022 marks the centenary of the publication of T.S. Eliot’s poem The Waste Land. The title of the conference alludes to Eliot’s work and the main themes in it, expanding the idea of the wasteland to the study of the United States. Hence, the overarching theme of the conference is open to all kinds of reflections around the concept of “wasteland” and waste. EAAS 2022 invites proposals that address the concept of waste in U.S. culture, history, and politics.

Proposals may address (but are not restricted to) the following topics:

NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022

 

How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.

Monday, November 15, 2021

As music critic Rob Sheffield says in response to a recent Hulu documentary about Paul McCartney, “Fifty years after they said goodbye, the Beatles are bigger than ever — the toppermost of the poppermost, guaranteed to raise a smile.” Sheffield cites the release of the Disney Plus Get Back documentary, the fiftieth anniversary edition of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, and McCartney’s own recent albums McCartney III and McCartney III Imagined as testament to this fact. Perhaps even more true is the healing power of the music and the Beatles fandom during the pandemic years, where the Beatles have the same power to “raise a smile” as they did when performing on the Ed Sullivan Show just weeks after John F.

From there, he went on to make commercials (which were, to say the least, provocative) and then music videos for stars performers such as Madonna.

The tern Genocide was coined by Raphael Lemkin in 1944, in a context heavily influenced by the events of the Jewish Holocaust. The parameters of Genocide, and its legal consequences were gathered in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide that recognizes that the following are factors that take place in a genocide:

-Killing members of the group

-Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group

-Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring physical destruction in whole or in part

-Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group

-Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group

From Kabuliwala to the Fall of Kabul: Afghanistan in Popular Imagination

Tuesday, October 5, 2021

With the recent fall of Kabul, Afghanistan has resurfaced in political and critical discourses. The “Graveyard of Empires” as it is known, the popular imagination of the country has been a source to draw courage from for subalterns the world over. Its crucial geopolitical location has often made it a site for global scuffles of major powers as we witnessed in Rudyard Kipling's Kim and its backdrop of the Great Game. We have also often seen how Hollywood’s Orientalist lenses transformed the country into a site for fulfilment of neocolonial American desires—Rambo vanquishing the Soviets almost single-handedly in the background of the Cold War.

California has been transnational since the moment of colonial encounter from which it acquired its name – borrowed by Spanish explorers from a work of contemporary fiction and imposed upon a place (indeed, multiple places) long known to indigenous peoples by other words. Since that time, California has been defined by further transnational encounters, exchanges, and conflicts – as a site of cross-cultural communication where borders often characterise experience but equally often prove to be porous and mutable.

"W(h)ither the Christian Right?” Papers are invited for a Post45 Contemporaries cluster on the U.S. Christian Right and literature. Recent evidence suggests the evangelical share of the population may be decreasing, but its political power so far has not waned and it is geared for apocalyptic combat. Momentarily defeated but unbowed like their champion President Trump, conservative white Christians have not received much attention in literary studies.
