Poetics of Authenticity / ACLA 2022

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:42pm
Ron Ben-Tovim / Ben-Gurion University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

What does “authenticity” denote in the study literature? Is there a way of writing authentically, reading authentically, or is authenticity just the effect of certain kinds of literary tension or structure? This seminar will study the many ways of understanding the notion of authenticity in textual study. While the seminar aims to focus on the interplay between the fictional and the nonfictional in literatures of all periods, the panel would more than welcome papers dealing with other aspects of “authenticity” in artistic creation such as, but not limited to:

Historicity and factualness in literature

Memoir and witness accounts 

Reader response and its authenticities (cognitive studies)

MCLLM 30th Conference "Tough But Necessary Conversations" Seeking Conference Paper and Panel Proposals

ACLA 2022: The Place of Podcasts in the Humanities

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:42pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

 

Podcasts have left the garage and entered the university. This seminar considers the ever-expanding place of podcasts and podcasting in humanities research, teaching, and scholarship. Are podcasts welcome alternatives to the gatekeeping of academic journals and exclusive conferences? Or is “start a podcast” the new “learn to code,” just another skill that humanities scholars must adopt to stay relevant in a shrinking field? Do podcasts encourage new forms of scholarship, knowledge, and collaboration? What are the intersections between podcasts and the fields of public humanities, digital humanities, and sound studies?

Totality and Culture, a special issue of Qui Parle

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:41pm
Qui Parle: Critical Humanities and Social Sciences
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

Is theoretical resistance to totality still viable today, in this moment of totalizing crisis? How might we reclaim totality as a conceptual ground that can account for the relationship between experience, on the one hand, and the historical-material processes that shape cultural production, on the other? Almost a century after György Lukács reinstated the concept at the very center of Marx’s project, and some four decades since the publication of Fredric Jameson’s The Political Unconscious, we are compelled to ask: how might we think about cultural production, circulation, and consumption in relation with, rather than in opposition to, totality?

This panel seeks to explore the contemporary uses of the Greek “care” or epimeleia particularly in ways enabled by Michel Foucault’s analysis of the notion connecting to (self)knowledge, subjectivity, and mode of life.

 

*Deadline Extended (Oct 15): Dance as Site-ation: Adapting Literature, Film, Media, Place, and Performance (NeMLA 2022)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 2:01pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Dancing, perhaps most famously of the Tik Tok variety, has helped many cope and adapt to the past year’s pandemic, making people feel connected in an almost choreographed way. Not only infiltrating certain web sites, site-specific dance—choreographed work inspired by a specific space or place—is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in environmental terms. Recent projects such as Karole Armitage’s “On the Nature of Things” or Jody Sperling’s “Polar Rhythms” have taken nature, and more specifically climate change and other environmental issues, as their source of inspiration. A transformative art, dance offers the possibility of intimate connection and even continuous metamorphosis.

Film Exhibition: The Italian Context (Symposium / Edited Volume)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 12:32pm
Damien Pollard & Edward Bowen
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 17, 2021

This symposium and edited volume seeks to draw together research into cinematic exhibition in Italy throughout the twentieth and twenty-first century. Current research into Italian cinema is continuously expanding its purview to consider the great range of genres, forms and contexts that have been engaged by filmmakers working in the country. Similarly, recent studies have shone vital light on the complex make up of Italy’s film audiences, and on the practices of film producers and distributors in the country. This project will continue this critical expansion by investigating the myriad ways in which film media (both Italian and foreign) has been exhibited and consumed in Italy.

*Updated Deadline Extension to 10/15/21* NeMLA 2022 - Exploring Plurality: Queering Feminism(s), Neoliberalism, and the Commodification of Intersectionality

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 10:58pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Feminism does not exist in singularity, and its plurality centers disenfranchised narratives and perspectives. Due to the interwoven structural oppressions based on the social construct of identities, intersectionality’s formation provides a foundation and praxis to theorize and contribute to the dismantling of systemic oppressions. The whitening of intersectionality participates in commodification (Bilge 2015), in stark opposition to its original intentionality (Crenshaw 1991), and calls into question the plurality of feminism as if a hegemonic conceptualization of ‘feminism’ would be preferred, enhanced, or (en)forced.

This roundtable is a combined showcase of published work that began on a NeMLA panel and an opportunity to extend the conversation from the original panel and publication to look at the increasingly global enterprise of RuPaul’s Drag Race and its pedagogical power. Across its chapters, RuPedagogies of Realness: Essays on RuPaul’s Drag Race and Teaching and Learning (McFarland 2021) tackles issues from heterotopia, pop-linguistics, philosophies of co-productive learning, and televised curricula to cultural appropriation, sports as pedagogy, stand-up as pedagogy, and even digital drag…right into the COVID-19 pandemic.

Journal Articles for Special Issue: "Teaching Girlhood Studies"

updated: 
Sunday, October 3, 2021 - 7:49am
Girlhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

Girlhood Studies, as an academic discipline, is still growing. Since some educational institutions do include girls’ studies as part of a special curriculum, an academic program, a certificate course, a minor, or as part of Women’s Studies or Gender Studies, Girlhood Studies does have a presence in academia although at this stage rarely in an autonomous department. This interest in the pedagogies and practices of teaching Girlhood Studies is an important aspect of its growth as a field of study at university level, at school, and outside of formal academic settings.

Ruined Hope: Experiments in Negation, Nihilism, and Possibility (ACLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, October 1, 2021 - 11:49am
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The critical (re)turn to negation has provoked unprecedented attention to hope and hopelessness as key terms of contemporary living and dying. In her monograph on ecological crisis and political theology, Catherine Keller argues that hope must be decoupled from optimism. Where optimism and pessimism determine their outcomes in advance, hope takes root in uncertainty and remains there. The point of hope is, after all, that we cannot know how something will go.

Monday, October 18, 2021

Humanity as a whole and on a global scale has had to reflect on how it would proceed in the wake of a pandemic that has lasted longer than it has expected and has tested its ability to adapt to and invent new ways of being and moving. Performing artists in efforts to literally and aesthetically survive has had to learn to deal with the limited availability of and accessibility to the stage. While in previous times indoor and outdoor stages as well as open public spaces have been readily available to offer their work to audiences, now they are forced to deal with isolation and mediation.

CFP: Performance and Public Shakespeare

 

For a special issue being proposed to Shakespeare Bulletin, we seek essays on the topic of performance and public Shakespeare, with a focus on markets and social responsibility.

Of course, performance is public Shakespeare, but as a result may be under-theorized in the ways current scholarship on social justice, eco-justice, and anti-racist pedagogy, to name a few, are reimaging and re-interrogating Shakespeare’s outward meanings and possibilities. We hope to expand our understandings of performance as public Shakespeare. Questions contributors may think about include the following:
