Vernon Press invites book chapter proposals to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on "Monsters and Monstrosity in Media - Reflections on Vulnerability".

How might on-screen constructions of the monster and monsterity represent notions of difference, perceived (non)belongings, and disruptions of traditional identity markers? How do these constructions conceal various vulnerabilities and implicitly endorse violence towards the labelled Other?

SUMMER SCHOOL 2022 »TACET AD LIBITUM! TOWARDS A POETICS AND POLITICS OF SILENCE« 24-29 JULY 2022 (Registration deadline: July 1, 2022)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

Silence (tacere or Schweigen) has been considered by Franz Rosenzweig among others as a subversive act or defiant stance of the tragic hero against overwhelming power mechanisms of necessity, i.e., totalization and universality. It has also, however, been regarded as an epiphenomenon (or a result) of marginalization and oppression by postcolonial theorists. The latters’ understanding marks silence as an end, a potential violent effect of the logics of exclusion and marginalization by “signifying machines”. The former understanding marks silence as a means of rendering mechanisms of powers inoperative.

OCTOBER 20TH AND 21ST

 

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Accumulation and Excess

 

Accumulation and excess are rich, polymorphic concepts that can speak to local and global histories, radical filmmaking traditions and other poetic acts of defiance, or even the basic sensory schemata through which we experience our social and aesthetic environments. We seek to experiment openly with the articulation and intersection of these terms, as we examine how they are mediated, developed, and problematized by film, television, and other audiovisual forms.

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work

Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work interrogates how some labor is denigrated and yet simultaneously supportive of the formation of the capitalistic markets upon which European nations expanded empires. By focusing on how these patriarchal societies see specific types of work as gendered, this edition explores how the gendering of labor establishes dynamic markets as either culturally sanctioned or illegitimate and, in turn, grapples with how cultural approbation undergirds economic growth.

updated: 
Monday, May 23, 2022 - 5:36am
Universität Heidelberg
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

The aim of this conference is to situate the rise of the Far-Right in conjunction with academic spaces and practices i.e., to understand the macroscopic role Academia has in producing, challenging, and responding to the proliferation of this adaptive ideology. How do scholarly practices and the Far-right interact? How do Far-right governments impact Academia, both nationally and globally? Why are Academia’s responses to and/or co-options by the Far-right so culturally impactful?

Venti: Air, Experience, and Aesthetics invokes both the number ‘twenty’ and ‘the winds.’ Conceived in the year 2020, the journal is a forum for discussions centered on the year’s foregrounding of air, its related themes, and historical, interdisciplinary, and critical resonances. Ventiasks: how do we become aware of something invisible and of things that are always in the air — such as the air itself? Investigating this query in a series of thematic issues, Venti explores the indexical qualities of air and our awareness of it through effects and affects.
