Audiovisual content has expanded into new ways of production, distribution, and screening enabled by the evolution of technology and the advent of new media. Apart from giving new life to older audiovisual works by making them accessible to the wide public through an alternative way of consumption, streaming platforms are producing original content that is meant to be consumed exclusively via online means.

Call for papers (online conference) — Expanded Poetry: The Poetics and Politics of Repetition

The history of poetry is a history of repetition. Poetry has always been shaped by repetition, not only through the repetitive mechanisms of language itself but also through the meter, rhyme, structure, alliterations, anaphors, parallelisms, among other kinds of repetition at the structural, phonetic, rhetorical or lexical levels. In addition, repetition is also crucial for understanding literary periods and movements, as well as for grasping the relationships they establish with each other. Crucially, research has demonstrated how even the discourses of the avant-gardes, with their proposal of radical variation, are often linked to previous historical periods.

Changes in Asian / Asian American Studies and Its Pedagogies (SAMLA 94 panel)

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 25, 2022

Since the emergence of Asian American Studies as an intellectual field of studies almost 60 years ago, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies has not only evolved as a whole but has also had to endure ongoing changes and readaptations. Now, perhaps more than ever, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies calls for new changes or perhaps even a new vision, to help us cope with the many living realities and meanings—whether racially, culturally, historically, or politically, just to name a few—on which we stand.

Panel for SAMLA 94: The Avant-Garde and Social Change

SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 29, 2022

The term avant-garde usually applies to works of art, literature and music characterized by their radical experimentation and opposition to institutionalized culture. Leading unconventional and non-conformist lives, the avant-gardists antagonized the bourgeoise by attacking their social values, mediocrity and material interests. Instead, these iconoclastic artists engaged in acts of dissidence promoted in soirées, manifestos, journals and exhibits that interfered with public life. For instance, Marinetti paraded with the Suffragettes smashing windows through the streets of London, an act that echoes his fervor to destroy museums and academies, as described in the 1909 Futurist Manifesto.

SAMLA 94 ASLE Affiliated Session - The Plantationocene Past, Present, and Future

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:03pm
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 1, 2022

While the term “Anthropocene” is frequently used to describe the current geological era of human-created and accelerated climate change, multiple other terms have emerged as scholars expand their understanding of the interconnectedness of human endeavors and their consequences. A useful alternative is “Plantationocene,” which emphasizes the economization of life and places the foundations of global climate change within the intertwined plantation systems of the preceding centuries, including how they continue to be reproduced in new, nefarious ways in the present day. This session seeks presentations that take any aspect of the plantation and its enduring legacies as a starting point for interrogating literature.

PAMLA 2022. Los Angeles, November 11-13

Special Session

This session explores Post-War road narratives by women, written in English, French, Spanish or Indigenous languages, that present fictionalized accounts of journeys across North America. Charting out a comparative, multi-ethnic, intersectional, and feminist counter-history to the American road narrative tradition allows us to envision North America not only as a continent made up of sovereign nations and dependent territories, a vast landform etched with borders, but also as a landmass traversed from North to South, East to West, by women on the quest for independence, solidarity, recognition, and freedom.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

With Disney’s initial apathetic response to the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill which recently passed in the state of Florida, it is time to shed light on Disney’s complex relationship with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Recently, there have been works which briefly discuss the relationship of queerness and Disney, such as Sean Griffin’s Tinker Bells and Evil Queens (2000), Melanie S. Kohnen Queer Representation, Visibility, and Race (2016), Jennifer Sandlin and Julie Garlen’s edited collection Disney, Culture, and Curriculum (2016), and Joseph Brennan’s edited collection Queerbaiting and Fandom (2019). However, the queer artist/contributor has yet to be the main topic of discussion.

The Spectre Haunting Academia: Understanding the Role of Academia in the Rise of the Far-Right

updated: 
Friday, April 29, 2022 - 8:37am
Universität Heidelberg
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

The aim of this conference is to situate the rise of the Far-Right in conjunction with academic spaces and practices i.e., to understand the macroscopic role Academia has in producing, challenging, and responding to the proliferation of this adaptive ideology. How do scholarly practices and the Far-right interact? How do Far-right governments impact Academia, both nationally and globally? Why are Academia’s responses to and/or co-options by the Far-right so culturally impactful?

Tuesday, May 31, 2022

Bergen 2022 aims to continue the reflection on spatiality started during the 2021 conference, addressing the theme of the dynamic representation of space in Italian cinema, television and new audiovisual media production.

The idea on which we propose to reflect is that the classical space paradigm has been altered, breaking the rigid geometry of the causal structure. This new spatiality creates a movement without purpose and without destination, a line of action without aim, a condition of wandering that becomes the hallmark of the modern form.
