Bataille Now: A transdisciplinary conference on the contemporary application of Georges Bataille’s thought

Georges Bataille’s work, a century after his texts were first published, has always been vested in controversy. Initially exiled from academic discourse and confined to titillating the imaginations of land-deprived sailors, Georges Bataille’s textual corpus has become the reluctant womb of post-modernity. Bataille’s influence can be found in a milieu of key thinkers from Foucault and Deleuze onto Giorgio Agamben and Jean Baudrillard.

Contagions and Non-Human Animals: (Re)Viewing Disregarded Species in Real and Imagined Pandemics

Due to the pandemic and a personal issue that delayed publication, this CFP from late 2020 is being reopened. I am looking for 3 to 4 essays to add to what I have. Below is the premise for the volume.

--

The impact of the pandemic and the threat that it poses to future human experiences has been well-documented. However, now that non-human animals are possible carriers and becoming infected, their experiences, while often overlooked, are nevertheless integrated into the worldwide pandemic.

Abstract

This aim of this symposium will be to examine how marginalized cultures are constructed and produced. We will focus on the key players, the main artisans of this cultural production, as well as on the networks that result from it.  We will analyze the concepts of resistance, self-exclusion and the hyper-center faced with the process of cultural polycentrism. These tensions will have to be thought of in terms of contemporary art, long time periods and historicity.

For Don Ihde, as long as humans find themselves living in and breathing through air, sound becomes, for them, an existential singularity. In fact, this air itself, Ihde continues, is ‘not neutral or lifeless’ but finds animation in and with ‘sound and voice’. It is, finally, this vibrant tract of air (for what else is sound?) which relates and marks the human in its existential prospects by not only producing an ambience of the world but also, simultaneously, being subjected to reciprocal manipulation by humans who invariably seek constructive teleologies.

Call for Chapter Proposals: New Perspectives on the Metal Gear Solid Series (edited collection)

 

Editors: Steven Kielich (University at Buffalo) and Chris Hall (University of the Ozarks)

 

In 2015, Hideo Kojima and his company Kojima Productions split from Konami after the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Kojima’s departure from Konami marked an unfortunate, but understandable, end to the Metal Gear Solid series. Now, in this “post-Phantom Pain” era, it has become both possible and essential to make a retrospective study of the critically, commercially, and culturally resonant series that was Metal Gear Solid.

Call For Papers: Illusion & Delusion 

From the Coronavirus pandemic to the Russo-Ukrainian War, researchers are arguably more aware now than ever of their presence at the crossroads of perceived and misconstrued conflicts. The  global political and ecological crises that confront us are strongly linked to imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and exploitation of resources. Literature and film offer pathways to explore global conflict and as a result - whether on the page or the screen - lines are blurred between what is real and what is perceived.

Confernce Theme
Blooming: Metamorphoses and Seasons of Queerness

Nothing stays static in the natural world. The cold and dead of winter gives way to the green shoots of spring, which flower out in summer’s long, warm days, only to wither and fall as the end of the year comes again. In this age of cold-hearted and unenlightened legislators attacking trans rights, a false spring of marriage equality, and (somewhat) greater representation in popular culture, we wonder what season are we in today as queer and trans people? How can we bloom in an ever-changing world and shape those changes to promote better, more just, and warmer-hearted treatment for all?

"Pornography, Propaganda, Representation"

Sunday, October 23, 2022 - 4:47pm
ACLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

This seminar investigates “pornography” and “propaganda” as two categories that attempt to set boundaries around acceptable language. They work as genre designations as often as they work as aesthetic judgements and denunciations. When an object, a picture, or a text is accused of being pornographic or propagandistic, it stands accused of using representational force in an unacceptable way – too direct, too explicit, too symbolic, too something to accord with the idealized sincerity and critical openness of acceptable, normal, or mainstream discourse, of speech that should be unquestionably “free.”

ACLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

Following the success of its previous ACLA seminar “Stories of Memory in the 21st Century” in 2022, this seminar invites paper proposals to discuss how memory is represented and imagined diversely in the movies and TV series from different cultural contexts. Living in an age saturated with memory and forgetting, we see the protagonists unsettled by their lost memory in films such as Memento (2000), The Bourne Identity (2002), The Girl On the Train (2015), etc.. These amnesic protagonists, haunted by déjà vu they can never make sense of, often experience trauma and violence. Their attempts to repeat or re-enact the past complicate one’s understanding of temporalities as well as their identity.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

The editors of New Global Studies invite proposals for essays on the subject of ‘global futures’. Essays may cover any historical period. The central questions that this forum poses are:

How have globalization and globality affected historical periodization?

How do global re-conceptualizations of the past and present rely on assumptions and beliefs about the future?

How has the now-widespread use of the term ‘anthropocene’ affected a global consciousness?

How do the phenomena of de-globalization and re-globalization relate to global futures?

How do ‘unforeseen’ future events (particularly crises such as pandemics) employ global narratives?

What is the place of futurism in global studies?

NYU 2023 Cinema Studies Conference: After After

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 15, 2022

How do we build after our foundations have been shaken? How do we create images after the afterimage? When four graduate students came together to plan a conference, we realized that we shared a methodological and utopian vision for our field. We have been trained to dismantle images, methods, and structures, but what we long for is to create, sketch, build, make, affirm and fabulate. We cherish the tactics of critique and deconstruction that came after the foundations, but we now find ourselves reaching for different tools, ones that can help us draw a new blueprint. With “AfterAfter,”wewish to create a venue for scholars who are also interested in generative, affirmative, and speculative methodologies for the study of cinema and media.

Roundtable proposed at the 2023 ASLE + AESS Conference: “Reclaiming the Commons”

July 9-12, 2023 in Portland, Oregon

On the topic of regional literature, authors Sherrie A. Inness and Diana Royer write, “[W]e find our subjectivities profoundly influenced by our locatedness” (6) – that our personal relationships with land and place are inherently connected to the discourses of socio-cultural conflicts and tensions which emerge from these defined regional spaces. Through the lens of ecohorror, we aim to examine literary and visual representations of regional identity-making as they intersect with (and are informed by) the uncertainties and fears specific to their locality.

In Nicomachean Ethics and Politics, Aristotle conceived ethics and politics to be both interrelated and exclusively male endeavors. This notion continued to be influential in the early modern period (c. 1500 – 1800). Yet in recent decades, feminist scholarship has showed that throughout the early modern world numerous women nonetheless discussed, developed, and challenged politics and ethics in profound and often surprising ways.

This two-day interdisciplinary conference calls for a renewed exploration of Modernist discourses to reflect on the plural iterations of the machine – as a myth, cult, and mechanical product – within the context of Modernism and modernity.
