Crises and Death in the Hispanic World (article)

We have been enduring a long period of crises that are changing the way individuals see themselves and their relationship to others. For instance, the effects of the 2008 economic crisis in Spain have incentivized a reflection on both the bad direction of the country’s politics and on the faulty transition to democracy after Franco’s death in 1975; climate change is not only posing environmental challenges, but also political ones, as the current Puerto Rican crisis demonstrates. Crises change paradigms, and, like in the recent cases of Spain and Puerto Rico, the outcomes are highly unfavorable, leaving victims to suffer their improper management.

 

Women and Work

The meaning of “women’s work” has never been stable. While women consistently have engaged with both the production of home and labor outside the home, their involvement in what Marx conceptualizes as wage-to-labor power exchange did not achieve heightened visibility in U.S. cultures until the nineteenth century. This panel seeks to address the many ways that women writers explore women’s labor in service to their families, their communities, and their nations, and how this labor contributes to the work of resistance and/or recovery across the Americas. How does women’s labor provide opportunities for collective dissent as well as recovery of women’s work?

Literature's Kinkiest Corners

We are currently seeking 500-word abstracts for an edited collection on kink and other fringe texts (taboo literature, self-published erotica, SM narratives, fan fiction, disavowed fictions, and other marginalized texts). In this project, we define kink broadly to encompass a range of "inappropriate" texts, understanding that kink often refers to non-normative erotic fantasies and experiences. We are interested in contributions that focus primarily on contemporary written texts and do so by engaging theoretical frameworks such as psychoanalysis, queer theory, rhetoric, and feminist theory. One of the interests of this project is an exploration of the ways texts shift in and out of different canons and categories.

Telling Stories: Rethinking Narrative in Literary and Writing Studies

The Department of English at St. John's University invites papers that think about narrative across literary and writing studies. Our topic for this year's graduate conference, "Telling Stories: Rethinking Narrative in Literary and Writing Studies," asks us to conside what is entailed in generating narrative(s). We seek work that explores the cultural place of stories and their various modes of telling--through drama, poetry, prose forms, performance, digital media, translation--as well as the role of narrative in pedagogy and writing studies, in any historical, national, or diasporic tradition.

Recently, there has been an increase in mistrust regarding the political establishment. Forms of expressing this disconformity have been at the centre of public and academic discussion. Countercultures, as attempts to find an alternative to social conformity, are central to these expressions of dissent. Books like Angela Nagle’s Kill All Normies: Online culture wars from 4chan and Tumblr to Trump and the alt-right (2017) highlight the resurgence of youth subcultures in the last decade. Correspondingly, counterculture movements on both sides of the political divide have seen their numbers multiplied.
