Cornell EGSO 2020 Conference: ProximityMarch 6th - 7th, 2020Call for Proposals:

As knowledge travels through time and space, proximity emerges as an increasingly important category for critical inquiry. How does our understanding of proximity change our intellectual landscape? What issues seem distant from us? Which objects, texts, or historical moments feel more proximate in the present? How does the idea of proximity shape our understanding of political, economic, ecological, and social issues? Whether addressing the position of the humanities with regard to geopolitical conflicts or the ways in which history becomes entangled with the present, matters of closeness and distance must be considered urgent intellectual problems.

ALIEN PROCESSES: REPRODUCTION & TIME

updated: 
Monday, December 2, 2019 - 4:16pm
Ekin Erkan/The New Centre of Research & Practice

Friday, December 20, 2019

The intensifying intimacy between humans and technology generates “de-naturalized” relations of body, cognition and time. This bodily experience of alienation is not solely technological, but also social. While we can try to escape denaturalization and alienation, we can also consider them as autonomous processes of production and reproduction.

Today, predictive processing determines how control is produced and reproduced technically, whether in drone warfare, high-speed trading, computerized borders, or facial recognition technologies. As attention-management, statistical parameters and machine learning emerge as nonlinear instruments, biology is no longer describable under the strict terms of biopower.

Access and Accessibility: Disability is Not a Metaphor

Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Disability has functioned historically to justify inequality for disabled people themselves, but it has also done so for women and [other] minority groups. That is, not only has it been considered justifiable to treat disabled people unequally, but the concept of disability has been used to justify discrimination against other groups by attributing disability to them.

AAIS-AATI 2020 "1950-2020: Cesare Pavese 70 Years After His Death. New Perspectives of Studies"

updated: 
Tuesday, November 26, 2019 - 3:07pm
Iuri Moscardi (PhD student, CUNY)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Cesare Pavese left an unforgettable mark on Twentieth century Italian culture. His multifaceted intellectual personality took many shapes. He was a poet, a translator, a member of the Einaudi publishing house, a novelist: in short, he was a complete intellectual. His literary production was characterized by an extraordinary open-mindedness: he was the first to translate into Italian the American authors who influenced him; with "Dialoghi con Leucò" he reinterpreted classical mythology; he was interested in cinema. Seventy years after his death, what methodologies can we employ to study his work? How  can we interpret his open-mindedness, based on the cultural context of the first half of the Twentieth century and looking at the present time?

UC San Diego's Second Annual Graduate Conference: "Movement"

UC San Diego Department of Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

UC San Diego’s Department of Literature is excited to announce their second annual graduate conference. This year’s theme, “Movement,” embraces the complexities of the potential for, and results of, movement. The term “movement” has been at the center of aesthetics, literary history, and philosophy for centuries. From a movement like the Young Hegelians, that criticized the political establishment and capitalist modes of production, to the Aesthetic Movement, that created “art for art’s sake,” movements have shaped critical thinking in a variety of fields. In the social sciences, social, horizontal, vertical, and spatial mobility have been analyzed for decades.

Thresholds and Threshold Concepts 

Saturday, February 29, 2019

 

Call for Papers: 

In a physical sense, a threshold is the bottom of a doorway that must be crossed to enter into a room. Kathleen Blake Yancey views threshold concepts as the “articulation of shared beliefs” that leads to the “modification, extension, and boundary marking” of spaces in social, professional, academic and other communities. Threshold concepts are entry points of knowledge that impact ideas and participants in discourse communities.
