Violence and Autonomy: Indigenizing Speculative Fiction (PAMLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, March 11, 2022 - 11:40am
Carlos Tkacz / University of Nevada, Las Vegas
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Speculative fiction has become the space in which imaginings of the future proliferate not totally free of the specter of history but free from the fatalism that subaltern communities often are forced to cope with under the weight of that history. As such, Indigenous writers, both in the US and in the rest of the world, have turned to the genre as a way to construct futurisms of survivance and resistance. If the weight of history has and does manifest itself in violence, both physical and otherwise, then the question of autonomy is central, for violence is perhaps the most basic violation of the individual and the communal.

Jewish Los Angeles "Jewish Literature and Culture" panel at the Pacific Modern Languages AssociationNovember 11-13, 2022 From Boyle Heights to Hollywood, and from Santa Monica to the Valley, Los Angeles has been a site for fantastic projections, colonial encounters, and organized struggles for Jews “moving West” since the late 19th century. This panel explores how L.A. as the other “promised land” is figured in the writings, films, artworks, and music of Jewish Californians and immigrants.  From its settlement as a supposedly empty “virgin territory” to its more recent description as a city that has no memory of itself, Los Angeles is often stylized as a place without identity, history, or borders (Baudrillard, Mike Davis, Thom Andersen, Vanessa Place).

deadline for submissions:

COVID has drastically changed how individuals navigate their worlds. Many university campuses and graduate programs have made changes. Current graduate students finishing their PhD program and future incoming cohorts, for example, will face new difficulties. Will funding continue to be available? Will campuses remain open, specifically student housing? Will campuses improve the experiences of disabled and marginalized groups so that campus services are not only theoretically accessible to all graduate students but also equitably distributed? How has COVID impacted you and how do you navigate graduate school?
