Race and the Psychoanalytic Clinic (ACLA 2019)

Monday, September 17, 2018 - 4:06pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

Psychoanalytic theory continues to be a powerfully productive discourse for queer theory, critical race theory, Asian-American studies, and Black studies. Queer theorists, for example, have located in Sigmund Freud’s “Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality” the “polymorphous perversity” that constitutes all human sexuality. Yet, while queer theory and psychoanalysis has had a lot to say about subject formation, the death drive, and anti-social forms of belonging, they have had very little to say on the conditions which allow access to such conceptual models.

Penn State’s Department of Asian Studies announces Global Asias 5, a biennial conference hosted to complement the work of our award-winning journal Verge: Studies in Global Asias (published by the University of Minnesota Press). By bringing into relation work in Asian Studies, Asian American Studies, and Asian Diaspora Studies, Verge covers Asia and its diasporas, East to West, across and around the Pacific, from a variety of humanistic perspectives—anthropology, art history, literature, history, sociology, and political science— in order to develop comparative analyses that recognize Asia’s place(s) in the development of global culture and history.

Sandra Cisneros: Intersections and Crossings

MELUS Annual Conference, Cincinnati, OH, March 21-24, 2019

Sandra Cisneros is perhaps best known for The House on Mango Street, a “little” book that explores the interior life of a Mexican American girl growing up in a Chicago neighborhood.  Although this close focus has tended to position Cisneros as a writer of the minor and the domestic, this panel will investigate the breadth and range of her work and career, positioning her and her work within an intersectional framework that attends in particular to ways in which Cisneros identifies herself and her work as expansively multi-ethnic and multi-national. 

CFP: MLA Symposium Lisbon 2019 Transpacific Imaginaries Asia/Latin America

Teresa Ko

I seek participants for a panel at the MLA International Symposium in Lisbon (July 2019) focusing on transpacific imaginaries between Latin America and Asia. In response to this year’s theme, “Remembering Voices Lost,” this panel examines South-South transpacific imaginaries as a potential space to reveal voices that have been doubly unheard or lost. I invite papers that focus on the late 20thand 21stcenturies and consider any aspect of transpacific imaginaries between Asia and Latin America, Asian Latin American cultural production, Latin American representations of Asia/Asians, theoretical considerations of Latin American orientalisms, hemispheric Asian American studies, self-exoticism, etc.
