Storytelling: Narrating Agency

updated:

University of Idaho English Graduate Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 20, 2023

The University of Idaho English Graduate Association is seeking submissions for our multidisciplinary conference, Storytelling: Narrating Agency. Historically, humans have attributed agency to human consciousness and intentionality, often to exert control over other entities. Narrating Agency is an exploration of the meaning of agency, and what/who can have it. Within and beyond humans, we wonder what has the capacity and drive to enact change? In the stories we read, tell, and see, who has the ability to take action and why? Who are the characters, elements, landscapes, and settings that drive change in our stories of the world around us?

People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that's how they'll react. But if you say, 'We want peace, we want stability,' we can then do a lot of things that will contribute to the progress of our society.

Continuous human presence in Low Earth Orbit, increasing expansion of techno-scientific infrastructures beyond Earth, and the extractivist ambitions of the commercial 'New Space' sector call for a reconsideration of the conventional analytical frameworks used to describe emergent (extra)terrestrial political, ecological, and social processes. On these accelerating investments, Vidmar has stated “the interplay between natural and social phenomena in the highly contested yet vastly open-ended Universe gave rise to an ecology of (trans)planetary systems – biological, technological and intellectual” (Vidmar, 2020, EASST.net).

MLA 2024: Interpreting Italian American Visual Arts and Cultures

updated: 
Saturday, February 4, 2023 - 5:09pm
MLA 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 17, 2023

This panel investigates Italian American transnational and transgenerational depictions of memory and ethnic identity through visual culture. Our goal is to invite scholars to reflect on diverse media and forms of representation, drawing attention to artists, authors, and performers who used visual components to narrate their hybrid identities and relationships to trauma, diaspora, and postmemory. Names like Fasanella, B. Amore, DiSalvo, Stella, and Scanga, come to mind, as artists who gave form to visual tropes of memory narrating their experience as first and second generation Italian Americans.

NWSA Panel CFP: The Political Uses and Abuses of Childhood: Queer Pasts, Presents, Futures

National Women's Studies Association Conference (NWSA)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

The last few years have seen a resurgence in conservative political activism concerned with protecting children from queer adults. Parents and politicians around the country are pushing to pass homophobic and transphobic legislation. These include, to name a few examples, laws being proposed to prohibit children from attending Drag shows, the “Don’t Say Gay Bill” in Florida, and most recently, DeSantis blaming queer theory for the rejection of a high school AP African American Studies course. These contemporary iterations, of course, have historical precedents: such as Anita Bryant’s “Save Our Children” or The Briggs Initiative to fire gay teachers.

Board Game Academics
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

The Board of Board Game Academics (BGA) is pleased to announce that we will hold our first annual academic conference. BGA is a new journal and conference dedicated to the exploration of critical issues within the distinct yet overlapping communities of tabletop board and role-playing games.

While these communities are expanding, players, creators, and scholars of tabletop board and role-playing games have traditionally been late to addressing and including diverse representations and perspectives.

For instance, production companies such as Wizards of the Coast (best known for Dungeons & Dragons) have been criticized for their continued celebration of oppressive ideological perspectives, systems, and governments.

The language of crisis suffuses current imaginings of past, present, and future. This symposium invites ambitious and expansive critical reflections on the concept of crisis and the postcolony across time and space. We welcome interdisciplinary provocations in the humanities, arts, and social sciences that offer the potential for thinking about crisis alongside forms of resilience, resistance, and collaboration.

CharlOz--an interdisciplinary festival celebrating Oz

updated: 
Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 3:31pm
UNC Charlotte
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 17, 2023

At this three-day festival, writers, scholars, collectors, and fans will explore The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Written in 1900, Baum's fairy tale incorporated timeless life lessons, and his stories were ahead of their time.

As Oz magic continues far beyond Baum's lifetime, we benefit from fresh Oz interpretations in visual, performing, and literary art. Works like The Wiz, Wicked, Dorothy Must Die, and Amy Chu and Janet K. Lee's Sea Sirens reflect changes in American culture, while incorporating the non-traditional gender roles and diverse characters that Baum ingrained in Oz.

Proposals accepted February 10, 2023, and November 17, 2023

Early European Puppetry Studies Conference

updated: 
Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 3:25pm
Yale University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2023

From moving statues to artificial animals to marionette performances, puppetry seems to have appeared in every sector of medieval and early modern European society. Jointed religious figures illustrated the liturgy, while dragon effigies processed through cities on feast days, and popular and courtly audiences enjoyed puppet shows of legendary and historical events. Despite the ubiquity of medieval and early modern puppets in Europe, scholarly consideration of these performing objects is often limited to case studies. Consideration of “puppetry” as a particular form with its own norms and commonalities is also uncommon, due in part to the marginal position of puppetry in Western culture.
