Call for Presentations – The Solarpunk Conference 2024: Rays of Resilience

Solarpunk is a growing subculture, existing across various veins of human endeavors, such as fiction, media, politics, technology, agriculture and urban planning and development. Solarpunk imagines an accessible, equitable world either without systemic barriers, or with those barriers in the process of disassembly, while championing intersectional social and climate justice. Drawing on ideas from permaculture, post- and trans-humanism, social ecology, and anarcho-socialism, while reacting against late stage capitalism, Solarpunk declares that our world is worth saving, and that saving it is possible.

In regards to this years Midwest Modern Language Association conference theme, Health in/of the Humanities, we invite papers that consider how health materializes in various facets of academia. We’re particularly interested in the discursive modes by which health is defined, represented, and mobilized in and between disciplines. This Science and Fiction panel welcomes papers that interrogate disciplines, exploring how representations change or impact the general notions of health and health outcomes.

“Modern?” CFP

 

Saint Louis University—Madrid, June 7-8, 2024

 

The OED defines “modern” as “being in existence at this time; current, present,” but also as something that is “opposed to the remote past.” Given that the concepts of “past,” “present” and “future” are not fixed, but, to paraphrase Einstein, illusory, the meaning of “modern” itself is hard to pin down.

Seeing the Unseen, Unseeing the Seen

Monday, July 15, 2024

“Seen and Unseen,” the theme of SAMLA 96, which will meet from 15 through 17 November in Jacksonville, Florida, focuses on the tasks of discovering, uncovering, and recovering material that may have escaped earlier notice. The study of adaptation sharpens this duality further. Cinematic and theatrical adaptations famously present visuals that audiences for literary texts have previously had to visualize for themselves. Adaptations that censor the texts they adapt seek to replace old ways of seeing with new by concealing matters they think better unseen. Reparative adaptations seek to heal cultural traumas by shining new light on old assumptions about power and status.
