Attachment and Affect

March 22-23, 2019

The University of Virginia Department of English Graduate Conference

 

Keynote by Lisa Ruddick (UChicago)

Master class with Rita Felski (UVA/SDU)

 

Why does the study of literature matter? What is the relationship between reader and text? How can affective responses to texts inform criticism? This conference seeks to take seriously our aesthetic and affective attachments, the attachments at work within and among literary texts, and the ways attachments form and function.

Anti-Oppressive Solidarities: "Third World" Feminism's Leadership against Imperialism

50th NeMLA Anniversary Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This session will present work by scholars on the literature, movements, activism, and cultural production from the regions of Latin/South America, Africa, and Asia, which have, in a showcase of imperial language, been described as the “Third World” by those in the industrial West. This session topic is vital and timely as the Trump administration’s rhetoric toward Africa as having “shithole countries” and the United States’ history of colonization as “taming countries” calls upon us all to actively resist such violently colonial discourse with the narratives, stories, and experiences directly from the people of these areas.

I seek participants for a panel at the MLA International Symposium in Lisbon (July 2019) focusing on transpacific imaginaries between Latin America and Asia. In response to this year’s theme, “Remembering Voices Lost,” this panel examines South-South transpacific imaginaries as a potential space to reveal voices that have been doubly unheard or lost. I invite papers that focus on the late 20thand 21stcenturies and consider any aspect of transpacific imaginaries between Asia and Latin America, Asian Latin American cultural production, Latin American representations of Asia/Asians, theoretical considerations of Latin American orientalisms, hemispheric Asian American studies, self-exoticism, etc.

Call for Papers

In Stephen King’s Gothic (2011) John Sears asserts that rereading King represents ‘an exercise in the extension of repetition, in the act of rereading an oeuvre already deeply structured … by its own engagement in the Gothic habit of rereading … To reread King would be to enter … and perhaps to become lost within, a labyrinth of intra- and intertextual relations, an immense and complex textual space’ (2). Sears’s framing of King’s writing is a critical response to David Punter’s question about the susceptibility of King’s writing to rereading (1996).

Since the 1980s, when the Jameson-Ahmad debate over how to read literatures putatively labeled as “third-world” and the notion of empire writing back to European literary traditions held sway in postcolonial studies, new contexts and ways of reading postcolonial and Anglophone literatures have been introduced and taken up.
