"Crossroads: The Risks of Making Choices"

Virtural Conference: April 16th-17th

 

"Each decision we make closes off a series of possible alternatives. What happens if we try to make several contradictory decisions at once and keep them separate, in open series? A political life, an academic life, an emotional life, family life, sexual, religious, all of which may have diffuse (not to say clandestine) relationships between them" Ricardo Piglia, The Way Out (258)

Racial Capitalism and the Middle Ages (MLA Sponsored Session)

Coined by Cedric J. Robinson in his magnum opus Black Marxism (1983), the term “racial capitalism” refers to the simultaneous and interdependent rise of global capitalism and racial classification and stratification. Robinson’s principal goal is to identify a tradition of radical thought and practice among Black intellectuals and activists in sites of colonial exploitation. He therefore decenters Marxist history by shifting our attention away from metropolitan Europe as a site of political radicalization. Black Marxism begins, however, in the European Middle Ages, which in Robinson’s view gave rise both to modern myths of whiteness and to the racialization of the proletariat.

Special Issue on Howard Jacobson

European Judaismis pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue devoted to the Man Booker-Prize-winning novelist, Howard Jacobson.

As David Brauner writes in his recently published monograph, Howard Jacobson is a protean figure:

            A Leavisite moralist with a puritanical streak, and a chronicler of dark sexual obsessions and perversions; a highly serious humanist intellectual and a hilariously comic provocateur; a passionate polemicist and an ardent advocate of ‘ambiguity and contradiction’; the author of (in his own words) ‘the most Jewish novel that has ever been written by anybody, anywhere’, whose literary heroes are Jane Austen and D.H. Lawrence, Jacobson revels in ambivalence.

Thursday, April 15, 2021

“Cities controlled by big companies are old hat in science fiction,” writes diarist Lauren Olamina in Parable of the Sower. Be it site of dystopian horror or utopian haven, The City in all its iterations serves speculative and science fiction in a variety of ways: as setting, plot device, character-in-itself, metanarrative reference point, all-purpose trope. Yet as metaphorical stand-in for ‘civilization’—and all that loaded signifier may entail—the city as trope may be all the more richly complicated within afrofuturism, allowing authors to ground their narratives in explorations of race, gender, class, and an entire array of intersectional complexities of human identity, community and social marginalization.

The editors of this special issue of the Global South are seeking contributors whose work engages with questions of incarceration and movements for resistance and abolition. As many major works regarding the development of mass incarceration in the United States draw explicit links between the development of the prison and the legacies of U.S. slavery and Jim Crow practices, this issue is, rather (or also), interested in examining the development of the prison-industrial complex through a global south perspective.
