REMINDER: 3rd Annual Crossroads Humanities Student Conference: "Networks"

updated: 
Monday, January 4, 2021 - 12:28am
Humanities Center / Nova Southeastern University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

Information, resources, and diseases are all things that are communicable across real and imagined borders. They are transmitted by the World Wide Web, television, highways and trains, diasporas, marketplaces, governments, viral media, social events, casual associations, the human system, and more. Networks as a model and metaphor for examining the structures of societies, politics, culture, and the body appear in seminal texts across disciplines, including Norbert Wiener’s Cybernetics (1948), Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish (1975), Jean-François Lyotard’s The Postmodern Condition (1979), Donna Haraway’s “A Cyborg Manifesto” (1985), and Timothy Morton’s Ecological Thought (2010).

The Book Out of Order: Structure, Inversion, Dissent

updated: 
Sunday, December 20, 2020 - 11:41pm
University of Toronto's Book History and Print Culture Student Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 11, 2021

“The book always aims at installing an order, whether it is the order in which it is deciphered, the order in which it is to be understood, or the order intended by the authority who commanded or permitted the work.” (Roger Chartier, The Order of the Book)

If, according to Roger Chartier, “the book always aims at installing an order,” what does it mean for the book to be out of order? Is it broken? Is it committing some kind of transgression? Is it still a book? What is a book supposed to do, and what does it mean when it falls short of its perceived functions – or overshoots them? 

Decay and Regeneration (Virtual Graduate Student Symposium)

updated: 
Friday, December 18, 2020 - 12:04pm
George Washington University English Graduate Student Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 29, 2021

The theme of decay and regeneration captures our current global moment of political uncertainty, environmental catastrophe, public health crises, and mass protest. In the past few years, we have witnessed a once-in-a-century pandemic; global protests in response to police brutality; a record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season; the largest wildfires in recorded Amazonian, American, and Australian history; the continued resurgence of fascist political ideologies; and the potential collapse of liberal democracy as we know it.

“‘Getting lost’ still takes us somewhere; and being lost is a way of inhabiting space by registering what is not familiar: being lost can in its turn become a familiar feeling [...] The familiar is an effect of inhabitance; we are not simply in the familiar, but rather the familiar is shaped by actions that reach out toward objects that are already within reach.”

Sara Ahmed, Queer Phenomenology , p. 7

How to Do Things with Worlds

18th Annual Interdisciplinary Conference

Department of English, Indiana University, Bloomington

Dates: TBA [but virtual]

Keynote: TBA


 

 

“A ‘world’ need not be a construction of a whole society. It may be a construction of a tiny portion of a particular society. It may be inhabited by just a few people. Some ‘worlds’ are bigger than others.”

  • Maria Lugones, “Playfulness, ‘World’-Travelling, and Loving Perception” (1987)

University of Toronto Graduate English Conference: Intimacies/Intimations

updated: 
Wednesday, December 9, 2020 - 11:50am
University of Toronto Graduate English Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

In the introduction to the Winter 1998 edition of Critical Inquiry, Lauren Berlant suggests that “the inwardness of the intimate is met by a corresponding publicness.” Over two decades later, Berlant’s pronouncement remains pertinent, particularly as the transition of our work and social lives to online spaces complicates the relationship between the private and the public. Stripped of actual bodily closeness and intimacy, the virtual body, along with its intimations and those of its domestic space, has been thrown into relief.

We especially encourage submissions that address Emerson’s relevance in our 21st-century moment; consider him in conversation with philosophers, poets, environmentalists, artists, and activists, within and beyond the nineteenth century; and explore him in transnational and interdisciplinary contexts.
