In Horkheimer and Adorno’s dialectic of Enlightenment, the spiritual and mimetic relation towards nature in early myth society increasingly gives way to nature’s disenchantment: the process by which a holistic and qualitative nature is systematically reduced and fragmented into the purely “rational” material of natural science and, ultimately, industrial, carbon-based society. But as Horkheimer as Adorno make clear, enlightenment, what promised liberate us from the irrational, becomes an even more irrational force than the nature it supposedly subdued, giving rise to catastrophes—genocide, nuclear fallout, global warming—that dwarf the violence nature originally wrought.

“)one’s eye / / perceives”: New Approaches to E. E. Cummings (deadline extended)

updated: 
Saturday, September 11, 2021 - 12:39pm
The E. E. Cummings Society and the Society’s journal, Spring
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

The E. E. Cummings Society and the Society’s journal, Spring, invite abstracts for 20-minute papers for the 49th annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 24-26, 2022, at the University of Louisville (http://www.thelouisvilleconference.com). Recent criticism of the works of Cummings has gone beyond his well-documented engagement with modernist aesthetic and poetic innovations. From Cummings’ visual and temporal poetics, to iconic meta-sonnets and rhythmic portraiture, to iconicity and ecology, and even to disability studies, the iconoclasm of Cummings in art and language presents a multi-dimensional i/eye that perceives and receives.

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:

The climate crisis, the economic crisis, the refugee crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic has called to the forefront the experience of contemporary beings which forces us to re-evaluate the place of the human in the current world, calling into question the crisis of the universal mode of man and human exceptionalism. Such a displacement in how we think about the human experience also forces us to re-think the city as a whole and what it wants to forget, in particular urban ruins. Is it still beneficial to think of urban ruins as dead, as just relics of a bygone age of national development, or just as modern flops that merge with the surrounding urban fabric? Or are they alive?

In the past few years, we have seen a revision of historicism with events that include racial and social reckoning, the removal of perceived racially oppressive brands, body size inclusivity, unprecedented global pandemic loss of life, multiple global shutdowns, falsely contested elections, large scale falsehoods orchestrated through social media, and a general individualization of experience. New ways of living have emerged that include the wearing of face coverings, shopping online, curb and home delivery, new styles of clothing that are worn, more engagement with computers and social media, concerns of global warming, the race into outer-space, global vaccination, and governmental control.
