Thursday, May 2, 2024 - 9:36am
AISNA Graduates
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 14, 2024

In a period of tumultuous changes like the ones brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the rise of far-right governments, racism, and international tensions caused by the war in Ukraine and Gaza, a great reckoning is happening in the Western cultural context, especially with regard to the Atlantic and Transatlantic world. No nation has undergone more rapid and sometimes contradictory transformations than the US, showing tensions between its foundational narratives and counternarratives rising from its too often neglected socio-cultural realities. Culturally embedded American ideals have always emphasized a single unifying narrative capable of synthesizing the plurality of voices on US soil.

Translating the Fetish: Lifting the Veil and Demystifying Capitalism

updated: 
Friday, April 19, 2024 - 3:34pm
The Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Karl Marx’s concept of commodity fetishism is helpful in understanding how the fetish animates produced commodities to have a mysterious power of their own, in which power is obscured, mystified, and alienated, holding sway over people in the dominion of capitalism. In Translating Blackness: Latinx Colonialities in Global Perspectives, Lorgia García-Peña asserts that “to translate thus presents us with the possibility of seeing the Other. This act of seeing is also an act of recognition that can contradict hegemonic knowledge.” The work of translating the fetish can thus be presented as a means of revealing real relations hidden by the fetish, an antihegemonic project of deconstructing systems of capitalism and oppression.

Speaking the Unspeakable: Representing Trauma

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 4:39pm
Allie Wood Reichert / PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

The representation of traumatic experience is a fraught conversation in literary and media studies. Cathy Caruth famously argued for the “unspeakability” of trauma; other scholars such as Naomi Mandel argue that emphasizing the limits of language can inadvertently silence, restrict, and ignore the material and corporeal existence of suffering. This session invites panelists to consider representing and witnessing trauma as acts of translation across the border of un/representability. Although our central question originates in discussions of language and texts, panelists are also encouraged to consider trauma’s appearance across disciplines and forms, such as visual culture, media, and/or performance.

Student Engagement with Theory in the Undergraduate and Dual Enrollment Classroom

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2024 - 9:41am
Julia Reade/PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Teaching literary analysis invariably includes learning activities involving reading, deciphering, and applying theory to a text understudy. For many undergraduate and dual- or cross-enrolled students, this activity is no small feat. Rather than tossing critical theory to the wayside as "too tough," we persevere! This session seeks presentations from educators who have had varying degrees of success bringing critical theory into their humanities courses. In order to render accessible to students the complex and insightful ideas sandwiched within the academic jargon of critical theory, how are we translating the rigor into palpable bites?

In accordance with the conference theme, “Translation in Action,” the work of French philosopher Henri Bergson is more than relevant. Bergson’s work was written in French and translations are often offered with notes about the richness of his words and potential loss of meaning. Questions of translation surround and even permeate Bergson philosophy.

Connections in the (Post-)Anthropocene

updated: 
Monday, April 1, 2024 - 12:49pm
MLCS Annual Graduate Student Confreence, University of Alberta
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 14, 2024

In the Anthropocene era, the pace of human development outpaces that of natural evolution, disrupting ecological balance and transforming humans into a potent geological force. Frequently, humans reduce the complexity of other life forms or natural entities on the planet, treating them as mere kinds of resources or energy used by humans without adequate consideration for the future. This perceived human superiority creates a dichotomy between humans and non-humans, further influencing knowledge production dynamics. However, the boundaries between nature and culture have been blurred because of the advancement in science and technology, and nature is not something out there, as a negligible externality.
