Simone de Beauvoir (1908-1986) was a protean author: trained as a philosopher, devoted to her craft as a novelist, gifted as a memorialist, the author of interdisciplinary works on women, and a considerable figure in French political life, it is as difficult as it is important to reflect on her importance as an international woman of letters. This panel will be organized around two basic questions: Can we identify the major contribution of Simone de Beauvoir in the context of 20th century literature? What is the continuing importance of Simone de Beauvoir in the 21st century?

Soldier, psychoanalyst, political activist, and post-colonial theorist—in his intense and brief life, Frantz Fanon wore many masks. And his influence has been as variegated as well; the list of those who fell under his sway include, to name just a few, Sartre and De Beauvoir, Homi Bahba, film director Gillo Pontecorvo, and the Black Panthers. This panel invites papers that explore and meditate upon how Fanon’s vibrant life and enduring writings influenced and continue to operate upon our present cultural and political moment.

This panel focuses on the enduring influence of Frantz Fanon by looking at specific works, ideas, and connections between Fanon and events, especially those of national liberation between his lifetime and the present time.

This panel explores the representation of the Great War from roughly late 2017 through roughly 1925 in order to examine perspectives on the final years of the war and the onset of peace. 

The guiding themes in this panel will be as follows:

· The examination of the effects and results of the year as the war is concluding

· Exploring the aftermath of the war to gauge its meaning and consequences

· Comparing representations of the Great War from country to country and language to language to measure its impact on life in Europe and the rest of the world

· Comparing the final years of the war in film and literature

· Examining the effects of the war on geographical areas.

ACLA Seminar- 50 Years After the Season of Politics: Literature, Art, and Media of 1968

1968 is now considered a global event, traversing national boundaries. As James Tweedie contends, these movements were not isolated events but “a series of interlaced moments,” posing an “alternative vision of global modernity” based on a critique of dominant infrastructures. In regions as disparate as West Germany, Czechoslovakia, Japan, Poland, the US, and France, among others, student and labor movements grew in unprecedented power. In the US, the Vietnam War drew mass protests, the Black Panthers organized against white supremacy, and the “Yippies” sought to disrupt the status quo. Meanwhile, in France, students occupied the Sorbonne and barricaded the streets during the infamous Mai ’68.

ACLA 2018: Postcolonial Studies and Racial/Ethnic Studies

Many claim that the heyday of postcolonial studies has passed. Scholars have criticized the premises of postcolonial theory (Chibber), questioned the relevance of empire to British culture (Porter), and defended the legacy of British imperialism (Ferguson). Others have found postcolonial modes of analysis predictable or exhausted. New frameworks have arisen instead: global Anglophone, cosmopolitanism, the “new” world literature, and modernist studies with its temporal expansion into the contemporary. Yet, as Robert Young argues, the postcolonial has always been about what is unfinished, incomplete, and left over.
