CONFERENCE ONLINEScientific Committee:Professor Wojciech Owczarski – University of Gdańsk, PolandProfessor Polina Golovátina-Mora - Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (Colombia) CFP: In our modern world, which some have argued to be disjointed while immersing itself ever deeper in crisis, the turning back towards “the olden days” and the ensuing nostalgia constitute a noticeable phenomenon, both individually (the memory of biography) and collectively (the memory of History). Another important – and seemingly also quite noticeable – phenomenon  is the longing for something vague, indefinite or never existent.     Hence, during our interdisciplinary conference we would like to concentrate on the phenomena of nostalgia and melancholy.

Literature in France has always had the potential to become a form of popular entertainment. However, what delighted families in La Bibliothèque Bleue has been forgotten or classified as literary “classics.” But popular literature, or “genre literature,” is more recent. Born in 19th-century newspapers when writers like Méry, Balzac, or Sue published their novels in serial form, its most emblematic writer is Alexandre Dumas. Unlike conventional works, where historical characters are magnified (epic tales) or relegated to the background (La Princesse de Clèves)Dumas’ novels staged characters who marked the history of France.

CALL FOR BOOK CHAPTERS on Chen Qing Ling/The Untamed

Thanks to an increasing range of streaming platforms, a greater general familiarity with adaptation-driven and transmedial storytelling, and faster rates of communication among invested viewers—among other factors! —audiences today have access to an increasingly transcultural range of popular culture content. The 2019 Chinese web series Chen Qing Ling (English translation: The Untamed) is one such example. While the show is not the first of its various genres or circumstances, it has generated and sustained a wide appeal that is worth exploring.

This CFP is for a seminar session at the 2021 NeMLA Convention. The deadline has been extended to October 19.

Literature and film that bear witness to injustice can create space for voices that have been silenced. They can lead to the recognition of people subjected to human rights violations and produce shared national and transnational identities. They can draw readers’ attention back onto the politics and power of reading audiences.

Body Memory and the UnconsciousOnline Conference and Workshop12-13 December 2020London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

Does the body remember what the mind tries to forget? The psychoanalytic tradition grew out of Sigmund Freud's interest in hysteria, and the body's capacity to record painful events in the guise of psychosomatic symptoms. The painful narrative that becomes 'unspeakable' gains potency as it roams around the body, possessing various parts of us. Instead of a wandering womb (originally believed to be the cause of hysteria), it is the banished signifier that wanders, seeking expression.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

This seminar aims to identify and investigate privileged genres in literature and film for the articulation and revision of state power in the Global North and South. In the aftermath of the fall of the Berlin Wall, theorists hailing from a variety of disciplines prognosticated a state with significantly diminished powers. Whether despite or because of “governmentality”(Foucault, Brown), “Empire” (Hardt and Negri), “the network society” (Castells), or “regionalism” (Söderbaum, Kai), recent history and current events bear witness to the consolidation of state power, as well as states’ increasing willingness to violently repress perceived threats within and without their own borders. Wherein lies this power? What sanctions the exercise of it?

Body Politics: Rethinking Gender and Masculinity

updated: 
Friday, October 2, 2020 - 12:04pm
Edited Volume on Masculinity Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 20, 2020

Concept Note: The research on men and masculinities traces back to the women’s and gay liberation movements that challenged existing understandings of gender and power. Though the initial formulations of Masculinity Studies had started much early around the 1970s, it was not until the empirical research around 1980s-1990s that it began to develop as a newly formed discipline. As a logical extension of Feminism, Masculinity Studies looks into sex and/or gender as a discursive social construct and tries to understand them through theoretical hermeneutics.
