Refugees and Cultures of Resilience

Resilience is the ability of the human mind and/or body to respond to adverse circumstances, tragedy, trauma, or any other intimidation to emotional and/or physical integrity and its impacts. It is an individual’s retort to any encroachment on one’s self, and establish self- legitimacy in a hostile environment. But is this power of resilience displayed with homogeneity or heterogeneity among and/or across culturally diverse and rich groups? As a context and culture-specific response, resilience is demonstrated in negotiation with factors, such as spatial, sociocultural, and political. Hence, its study is problematized when it is read as a homogeneous response to adversity by individuals from varied backgrounds.

Thursday, September 29, 2022

For people of Latin America and the Caribbean, centuries of modernity/coloniality have resulted in continuous and compounding traumas that demand resilience. Yet, when we talk of resilience, are we ever naturalizing trauma and legitimizing the status quo, accepting that the way to be of oppressed peoples must always be in response to abusive conditions? Is it not possible that in focusing on resilience, we enable the continuation of unequal power structures by putting pressure on the oppressed to learn to adapt to what hurts us, rather than putting pressure on the world to destroy oppressive systems including racism, patriarchy, and capitalism? Instead of focusing on resilience, we should be imagining and enacting ways of being otherwise.

Arab and Muslim Womanhood Between History and Literature

Friday, September 30, 2022

At times depicted as loquacious and licentious, while most often portrayed as silent or inert harem slaves, the Arab and Muslim women received much attention from writers of different periods. Though considerable scholarly attention was given to discussing such representations and others, there are still forgotten and underrated characters. With the access we have to an abundance of digitized historical literary sources, we can trace these figures and analyze them in more depth.

Panel Abstract: 

Where does public history end and personal narrative begin? Practically everyone in the United States during the 1990s saw the footage of LAPD officers beating Rodney King, a Black motorist. Known by many names, the events that followed the acquittal of the four charged LAPD officers also took over television sets and radio waves far and wide. What the nightly news denounced as “the Riots,” others articulated as part of a resistance by the name of “No Justice, No Peace.”

Filth, Dirt, (Im)Purity, and the Woman

updated: 
Saturday, June 11, 2022 - 1:54pm
54th Annual NeMLA Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Women and their bodies share a close connection with (im)purity, filth, and dirt as unavoidable elements in their routines of care and caring. It could be said that the words like filth, dirt are loaded with colonial meanings and can become extremely complicated when understood from the socio-cultural-political lens. Through the postcolonial appropriations, these meanings have subsequently contributed to the patriarchal assumptions and gendered ideas of women’s roles, especially, in handling filth and dirt, in their daily duties of selfless care, nursing, cooking, cleaning, and mothering.

It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.

Over the past twenty years, refugee studies has turned toward a critical encounter with the legal studies framework that had previously dominated it. Scholars such as those in the Critical Refugee Studies Collective have emphasized the position of refugee as one that creates new forms of relationship across spaces and times unbound (but not unmarked) by the state.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

The aim of this conference is to situate the rise of the Far-Right in conjunction with academic spaces and practices i.e., to understand the macroscopic role Academia has in producing, challenging, and responding to the proliferation of this adaptive ideology. How do scholarly practices and the Far-right interact? How do Far-right governments impact Academia, both nationally and globally? Why are Academia’s responses to and/or co-options by the Far-right so culturally impactful?
