 Submissions sought for new editied collection Surveiallance, Race, Culture

 

Drawing on huge interest in the upcoming collection Spaces of Surveillance: States and Selves which is currently in press (Palgrave Macmillan) this new collection seeks to merge cultural explorations of surveillance with the issue of race. We wish to examine how culture produces or reproduces power relations via the surveillant technologies which have captured the cultural imagination. Through a critical reading of contemporary and historic narratives of race and surveillance, we seek to illustrate the ongoing cultural fascination with technologies of control and surveillance.

Subaltern Women’s Narratives: Subversion, Resilience, and Shifting Responses

updated: 
Monday, February 6, 2017 - 12:04pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 23, 2017

This conference aims to look at the material histories and lives of subaltern women. In her 1988 essay ‘Can the Subaltern Speak?’, Gayatri Spivak extends the definition of the ‘subaltern’, going beyond “strict class analysis”, to incorporate a range of different subject positions, not predefined by dominant political discourses. We draw on her definition in our usage of the word ‘subaltern’, to focus on the experience of marginalised women in the present day. Most of the current academic discourse on subaltern women concentrates heavily on narratives of subjugation. However, the varied nature of lived experiences of these women has presented challenges in the knowledge and understanding of their experiences through an overarching critical narrative.

Kurt Vonnegut: Ten Years Later—So It Goes

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

It’s been ten years since American novelist Kurt Vonnegut passed away, and twenty since he published his final novel, Timequake. Author of fourteen novels and nearly one hundred published short stories (not to mention numerous plays and essay collections) over his fifty-year career, Vonnegut has been called everything from a hack to an innovator. Blurring fact and fiction, high and low styles of art, and conventions from genre and “literary” fiction, Vonnegut’s work remains popular with general readers, especially high school and college students, but is often maligned in serious academic circles, perhaps for that same reason.
