Latina/o Cultural Productions as Provocation: Breaking Rules, Making Texts.

 

The cultural production of US Latina/os, as any other so-called minority discourse, can be analyzed as defiant voices that aim to provoke dialogue with the hegemonic discourse and the mainstream culture. As such, these discourses can be more or less combative in their struggle to break and resist the rules imposed by the status quo.

This panel welcomes submissions in English or Spanish on any aspect of Latina/o cultural products (literature, fashion, film and visual arts, etc.) that aim to contest hegemony, including but not limited to:

Persistence in American Drama

updated: 
Saturday, February 29, 2020 - 12:33pm
American Theatre and Drama Society & Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 15, 2020

Due Date Extended: This panel will consider how American plays, live performances, masters, or movements in American drama and theatre from any period offer strategies for persistence in an age of mechanical reproduction. How do American plays model, operationalize, and/or resist persistence? Why and how do some theatrical voices persist in the national discourse amid marginalization? For example, papers may wish to consider persistence in American drama within Benjaminian, or other, theoretical context(s) regarding the work of art in an age of mechanical reproduction or live performance’s “aura” in a digital age.

Sunday, March 15, 2020

Optimism is not readily associated with the postcolonial. Indeed, postcolonial writing has been described as melancholic and postoptimistic, a repository of the injurious legacies of empire. It is a reputation consonant with postcolonialism’s revelatory project of unmasking imperial designs in canonical texts and exposing complicity in postcolonial writing. In addition, almost by definition, the postcolonial novel expresses disillusionment with nationhood and the developmentalist logics that frame it.

Dust storms. Flooding.  The fear of nuclear fallout.  While literary critics associate American authors of the 1930s and 40s with leftist political and economic thought, they often ignore concern in the period’s literature and other cultural works with major environmental crises.  In my forthcoming book, The Green Depression: American Ecoliterature of the 1930s and 40s (U of Miss. Press, Oct. 2020), I identify ways that depression-era literature contributed to shifts in conservationist thought during the period that would lay the groundwork for the development of environmental thought in the second half of the 20th century.  

"Hollywood and the Holocaust" Conference Panel

updated: 
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 - 2:04pm
Elyce Rae Helford / Middle Tennessee State University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 12, 2020

I seek original papers for a panel on "Hollywood and the Holocaust" for Middle Tennessee State University's Holocaust and Genocide Studies Conference in Murfreesboro (near Nashville), TN, Oct 21-23.

Specific topics may emphasize a single director or film or address a theme or representational style. My goal is to include some diversity of approach and paper subject within the broad field of Hollywood cinema's engagement with the Holocaust, 1930s-present.

There is potential for future publication via journal special issue or published conference volume.

Special journal issue: Our Shared Planet (The Environment Issue)

Special issue of American Studies (AMSJ)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 31, 2020

For people of color, the future has never been a given. Whether through the policies and practices of state-sanctioned genocide, enslavement, internment, or forced relocation and migration, racialized communities have survived their worlds ending, over and over. To cite the opening lines of Sun Ra’s 1974 Afrofuturist film Space Is the Place, “It’s after the end of the world, don’t you know that yet?” This special issue critically interrogates the supposed universal notions of a shared planet, ecological demise, and what it means to be human in an era of climate change. The collection aims to center the perspectives of people of color historically and in our contemporary moment on how they envision(ed) “surviving” apocalypse.

For centuries, the close ties between Britain and Germany have found expression not least on the level of personal travel. Travellers came from Britain to Germany for a host of occasions and with the most diverse aims, expectations, and preconceptions. This conference explores the reports produced about their experiences in German lands by travellers from England, Scotland, and Ireland since the Middle Ages.
