Postcolonial Hauntologies (ACLA 2021)

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

What sorts of specters haunt the postcolonial realm? How can we conceive of hauntologies that enable us to effectively listen to postcolonial specters? Derrida defines hauntology as a way in which we can learn to acknowledge those things about us or around us that we have forgotten how to notice. He emphasizes that by acknowledging specters, hauntology performs a gesture of “positive conjuration” in which specters are raised to be listened to and not in order to be exorcised. Acting as a disruption to western notions of space and time, specters function as transformative mediums of postcolonial recovery by making space for the co-existence of the past within the present and acknowledging the existence of alternative histories.

Autotheory and Psychoanalysis at ACLA

Seeking papers for a seminar for this year's virtual ACLA--to be held on April 8-11 2021--entitled "Theorize Yourself: Autotheory and Psychoanalysis."  Submissions can be made on the ACLA portal through October 31.  Description below.

Conversations about autotheory circle around psychoanalysis as a conceptual touchstone, with the understanding that analytic theory, more than serving as one of the fields that autotheoretical writers engage, is itself a parallel discourse. “Freud’s dream” of the theory of the Oedipus complex appears, in one moment, to be an autotheory avant la lettre; in the next, it seems that the birth of psychoanalysis takes place in the sublation of Freud’s self-analysis.

Our interdisciplinary conference is intended as a fitting opportunity for this reflection.

[ACLA CPF] Reverse: Impure Mediascapes and Epistemic Resistance

American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

What do media and technologies mean for the colonized, racialized, and dehumanized? How do we interpret, use, or embody them in ways that go against the grain of colonial logic? How do we rewrite our histories decolonially by taking a close look at their materiality, representation, aesthetic form, and ontological structures? This seminar looks for media and technologies that reverse modern/colonial agencies and explore resistant subjectivity. We think of Leanne Simpson’s keen perception on the maps of “two-dimensional representations”: one is the colonial map that represents the colonial reality; another is the map that records alternative realities of pain, loss, and survival “alongside” the colonial one, embodied by the Nishnaabeg elders.

Borders in the South Asian Graphic Novel

updated: 
Monday, October 12, 2020 - 1:26pm
ACLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

The graphic novel’s openness to auto/biographical and historical content and its explicit demotic allegiances enable it to perform a range of political-affective stances including subversion, resistance, solidarity, memorialization, loss, complicity, capitulation, defiant interiority, and cautious hope. Graphic novels are therefore emerging as a powerful tool for mapping the uncertain and liminal spaces that complicate the neat divisions and borders that map out national/sexual/ethnic/religious/caste/personal identities in South Asia. This seminar seeks to address how graphic novels negotiate these borders and boundaries as they imagine the histories--both private and public, personal and collective--of South Asia.

Body Memory and the UnconsciousOnline Conference and Workshop12-13 December 2020London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

Does the body remember what the mind tries to forget? The psychoanalytic tradition grew out of Sigmund Freud's interest in hysteria, and the body's capacity to record painful events in the guise of psychosomatic symptoms. The painful narrative that becomes 'unspeakable' gains potency as it roams around the body, possessing various parts of us. Instead of a wandering womb (originally believed to be the cause of hysteria), it is the banished signifier that wanders, seeking expression.

READY READER ONE: THE STORIES WE TELL ABOUT, WITH, AND AROUND VIDEOGAMES

 

Videogames are a powerful storytelling medium—but what are the stories we tell about videogames, with videogames, around videogames? What can we learn from novels that describe the struggles of young people trapped in virtual reality, from fan fiction that explores the private life of a popular Nintendo character, or from a poem that compares Pac-Man to Saint Augustine?

 

Quite a lot, actually.

This year, the AAR-WR has asked us to examine the timely question: How can religious groups, and Religious Studies, be a potent contributor to the public good amidst our current medical, social, economic, ecological, and political crises? We in Jewish Studies know that the storehouses of Jewish tradition, the methodological approaches of our sub-field, and the experiences of Jews throughout history offer a great deal of wisdom on these topics.

Monday, October 19, 2020

From arborescence to the rhizome, plants have long served as models for thinking in philosophy, biology, and the arts. In recent years, scholars including Michael Marder, Catriona Sandilands, and Jeffrey Nealon have brought renewed attention to the agency and dynamism of the vegetal, at the same time that the future of plant life has come to be at risk in the wake of climate change and the impending collapse of ecosystems. This panel invites papers that explore ways of thinking about and with plants in the shadow of the Anthropocene. How do writers and visual artists, past and present, help us renegotiate our relationship to the vegetal today?

The idea that studying the humanities generates more empathy and compassion is one that is now commonly understood. However, the humanities have been at a crossroads for these past ten odd years, since the rise of the digital humanities as “the next big thing” (Panapacker, 2009). Staunch advocates of the traditional humanities would look back and defend the discipline's ongoing relevance from its inception. Although there has been much-needed innovation in the humanities in recent years, partly in response to greater funding and public fervor for so-called “STEM” fields, it has not been without controversy.

Discourses of Asian American Literature and Studies Then and Now (NeMLA 2021 panel)

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 19, 2020

Since the coinage of the term “Asian American” in the late 1960s, the fields of Asian American literature and Asian American studies have since then grown remarkably. Now in recent decades, more and more widespread interdisciplinary connections are made between Asian American fields and other disciplines, such as history, religion, media, and cultural studies. As Asian American fields continue to evolve and create new discourses of understanding and new approaches of interpretation, long-standing traditions should not be forgotten, for they play a major role in shaping the future of Asian American literature and studies.
