“Interrogating Discourses and Representations of Anger” Graduate Conference at The Ohio State University

Anger is traditionally conceived as a contrary response to a negatively-perceived experience. Anger is an emotion that is acceptable for some and not others. For some, expressing anger can have a devastating impact on social, political, professional, and economic outcomes while it enables the successful outcomes of others. Moreover, it can function as an impetus for transformation or stall changes in culture.

 

Anger may color the actions of groups who strive for change. Particularly, in academia, anger and professionalism are often perceived as mutually exclusive. Calls for respectability and civility are often used to silence minority groups who express anger.

Neoliberal Tools or New Humanistic Critique? Theorizing Class, Race, and Nation in the Digital Humanities

In recent years in Canada, the digital humanities has enjoyed increasing popularity as a tool for teaching, researching, and disseminating texts, and also a means of generating collaborative scholarship across disciplinary borders. However, the digital humanities, and perhaps its practitioners, have recently been described as a collection of neoliberal tools whose “institutional success has for the most part involved the displacement of politically progressive humanities scholarship and activism in favour of the manufacture of digital tools and archives.” Do the digital humanities represent a displacement of critical questions of power in favour of a cloistered technological positivism?

‘For they are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time’: Negotiating Shakespearean Characters in Performance from Past to Present

In criticism, relying on character study or treating Shakespearean characters as real
people, has often been censured. But, in performance, where actors especially need to
get under the skin of the characters they portray, Shakespearean personae do exhibit
some kind of biographical reality.

NeMLA 2017: Literary Form and its Limit: Marxism, Poststructuralism, and Description

The legacies of both Marxism and poststructuralism have loomed large in literary studies in recent years. The ongoing publication of the late seminars of both Foucault and Derrida, as well as the long awaited translation of Althusser’s On The Reproduction Of Capitalism suggests a sustained interest in such methodologies, while what has been called the “descriptive turn”—which encompasses practices as disparate and ill-defined as Latourian Actor-Network Theory, Morettian “distant reading”, and Heather Love’s revival of “thin description”—has attempted to caution scholars away from symptomatic reading, ideology critique, and broadly “deconstructive” critical practice.

Beyond Monogamy: Opening out Adaptation Studies

For a host of reasons, the basic structure of an adaptation study has been, historically, a one-to-one comparison of source and adaptation. And for a host of reasons, this has proven (potentially) problematic. Not that the one-to-one study, or singleton, can’t be well done, productive, and downright brilliant. Clearly, it can. But as adaptation studies moves toward conceiving and theorizing adaptation according to postmodern concepts of intertextuality, the singleton becomes less dependable and productive in developing forward-moving directions, strategies, and theories for the field.

Rethinking Early Modern Subjectivity (NeMLA 2017)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Modernity is often defined as a series of political, social, and economic shifts related to the emergence of an autonomous subject. Nevertheless, there is a lack of consensus of how to measure the underlying forces driving this supposed change of paradigm. In light of recent approaches to subjectivity, we invite participants to circulate 5-8 pages papers (with theoretical or empirical foci on the topic) and discuss them after a brief presentation. The goal of the seminar is therefore to interrogate the condition of the “early modern subject” through the analysis of established binaries such as (but not limited to) unity/plurality, transcendence/immanence, individual/communal, East/West, local/global, medieval/modern, etc.
