ABOUT CONFERENCE: 22-23 April 2021, ONLINE (via Zoom)Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.

Examining time and space as anything but concrete and singular, Elizabeth Grosz states that they “are in some sense correlated with representations of the subject” (99). Such a conception associates spatio-temporal location with subjectivity, and to some extent, embodiment and corporeality. Space becomes about more than physical conceptualizations—such as land, location, or locality, or more specifically Earth, land, nation, city, or home—and comes to include broader, more metaphorical, notions such as the space within body and mind, as well as narrative space.

Posthuman Drag (Edited Collection)

Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."

We invite proposals for this virtual (online) session exploring any aspect of Afro-Asian coalition-building projects in literary or cultural studies, with interest in engaging across cross-racial, interracial, or interminority studies bridging Black and Asian cultures and values. The tension and conflicts of interminority in the US, especially the Black-Asian conflicts, have been a big issue… but is it really the issue between the two communities only? Afro-Asian solidarity means a lot to both Black and Asian groups as their coalition, connection, allyship, and understanding have been undermined for decades, for many reasons, but here we gather to call out to say the Afro-Asian solidarity is revolutionary. Description After the Russo-Japanese War W.

City dwellers have a unique opportunity to see and engage in group political activities that those in more rural areas do not. Their everyday lives can be impacted by political demonstrations whether they are actively participating or not. The perspectives that we usually get are from the government, press, or political leaders. These accounts miss how people actually experience and understand the protests they see and/or participate in. As such, examining the life writing of those who participated or observed city protests can be intriguing and add a personal element to group politics. This panel will focus on the experiences of those who planned, participated, and/or observed protests in various cities. Ideas to be examined include personal vs.

After a year on Zoom, our bodies have become clear indicators of the disjointed embodiment of the pandemic condition. The lingering effects of COVID-19 blur the boundaries between our biology and psyche. Beyond a philosophical analysis of the mind-body problem, embodied minds and mindful bodies challenge us to find new ways of reading symptoms. What are our bodies telling us?
