“ Femmes solidaires d’Afriques transatlantiques: Sororité, amitié ou conflits?"

updated: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021 - 2:40pm

Thursday, September 30, 2021

Le présent panel se veut le lieu d’exploration et de questionnement des difficultés auxquelles sont confrontées les femmes qui sont loin d’être préoccupées par la construction d’une communauté centrée autour d’une conception sororale unique. Leur engagement dans le cadre des luttes politiques tout comme leur rôle en tant que « gardiennes du temple » des traditions séculaires patriarcales ne sont plus à démontrer. Cependant, existe-t-il des associations des femmes africaines à caractère essentiellement féministe ?

Theaters have closed everywhere. Theaters are reopening. And at the same time, the global pandemic and recent social movements have urgently been measured, mediated, and aided by the arts and theater makers to reshape the way we must now represent, facilitate, and protest.

This proposed "Just-in-time" session at the 2022 MLA Convention in Washington, DC (January 6-9) seeks to situate recent amplifications in anti-Asian violence and rhetoric (as well as the resistance to name them as such) within the context of Asian American literary and cultural production. As the theme of the MLA convention is Multilingualism, this session invites papers on Asian American texts, media and experience that privilege embodied affect or memory as language itself.

Fantasies of the Subject: Affecting Selves in Contemporary American Literature

 

edited by Paula Barba Guerrero & Laura de la Parra Fernández

 

If what we need to dream, to move our spirits most deeply and directly towards and through promise, is discounted as a luxury, then we give up the core —the fountain— of our power [...] we give up the future of our worlds.

 

—Audre Lorde, “Poetry Is Not a Luxury”

American Academy of Religion Western Region
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

The 2022 Call for the Queer Caucus is centering on topics surrounding queerness and the body: the effects of the Pandemic. The call wants to ask questions like "How has the queer community experience the devastating and last effects that have arisen out of pandemics?" "What happens with the lost of queer geography?" This call also seeks papers that explore how the queer community has continued to find creative ways to maintain communities, connections, and support when their physical spaces, their livelihoods, and their health have been threathened. How do you find community, other queer bodies? The recent closure of gay bars has also taken a toll and what does this mean for the future?

Networks of Song and Story: Convent and Community in Medieval France

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 1:22pm
A Special Session at ICMS, Kalamazoo 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

This session adopts an interdisciplinary approach to women’s communities centered at French religious houses, and interprets creative, devotional, and other kinds of output inspired by these institutional contexts. How did music, art, liturgies, and literature figure in representations and articulations of these women’s voices? We consider how such works created networks among writers, readers, and performers, and we investigate how convents, functioning as inspiration and narrative loci, shaped lyric and text. We aim to newly demonstrate how particular institutional contexts framed gendered expression and communal life, and how particular works reflected and fashioned women’s voices, within and beyond convent walls.

Monday, November 1, 2021

Decay as a state of nature is inevitable, yet it is something that could be at least postponed: decay in art as the main decadent idea has been on the cultural front row long enough to make certain conclusions about its essential characteristics. Decay as a philosophical issue is much more complex than its natural incarnation: French Symbolists and, later, fin de siecle authors regarded decay as an inseparable part of any type of cultural cognition. Its original interpretations can be found in the ideas of Schopenhauer, Hartmann, Nietzsche, Wagner, Bergson's intuitivism, modern scientific discoveries and folklore. The art of decay feels the need to justify its aesthetic principles, to explain to the public audience its goals and tasks.

Over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st, cinema, television, and related media have become increasingly central both to individual lives and to the lives of peoples, groups, and nations. Cinema has become a major form of cultural expression and films both reflect and influence the attitudes and behaviour of people, representing their tensions and anxieties, hopes and desires and incarnating social and cultural determinants of the era in which they were made.

Embodied Rhetorics in the long Eighteenth Century (Roundtable)

ASECS (American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies)

Friday, September 17, 2021

Where and why do we find examples of “embodied rhetoric” in the eighteenth century? We might think of Defoe’s description of Friday’s gesture placing his head beneath Robinson Crusoe’s foot signifying voluntary servitude and its relation to the supplicating figure of “Am I not a Man and a Brother” emblem, memoralized by Wedgewood. Or we might consider Trim’s gesture with his hat in Tristram Shandy describing how we pass from life to death, and onwards to Gilbert Austin’s Chironomia as a handbook for speaking gesture (building upon Bulwer’s Chirologia) as figures for something like “embodied rhetoric” or an emphasis on gesture and persuasive or signifying postures.

Supporting Women Writers: Coteries as Feminist Praxis (Roundtable at ASECS Annual Conference, March 31-April 2, 2022, Baltimore, MD)

Eliza Haywood represents The Female Spectator as part of a coterie that acts as “several Members of one Body, of which [she is] the mouth.” Through this writing club, Haywood encapsulates the important role that such coteries played in circulating women’s writing in the long eighteenth century. Lady Mary Wortley Montagu circulated her travel writing for feedback in a letter-book within a close circle of friends and family members. This correspondence between women represented an opportunity to share work in a safe space. Co-writing groups remain a safe space and an essential resource for women to share work today.
