The Politics of Pleasure: Social Networking in the Middle Ages

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Social networking in the Middle Ages, much as today, was a means for forging political relationships and alliances. From tournaments to banquets to bedrooms, these encounters crossed geographic and national borders, drawing together a variety of figures with distinct agendas and desires. The planning committee for UC Santa Barbara’s Medieval Studies Graduate Conference seeks papers that explore the varied and complex ways in which pleasure, leisure, competition, entertainment, friendly feelings, and play facilitated the very serious and often obnoxious business of politics - relaxing boundaries to allow for their renegotiation.

Environmental Remediation: Genre, Visibility, and Ecological Crisis in African Literatures (Panel CFP)

Remediation has emerged as a keyword in both new media studies and sustainability discourses. While Bolter and Grusin define it in terms of repurposing old media in new forms, Leerom Medovoi traces its ethically promising, yet politically empty rhetoric for environmentalism. Further, Medovoi asserts these dual definitions of remediation converge in Global South ecologies, many of which remain marginalized by mainstream coverage of environmental crises due to their non-spectacular exposure to what Rob Nixon terms “slow violence.” Whereas Medovoi studies ongoing pollution in the Niger Delta, this panel pursues the formal and environmental definitions of remediation as they emerge in African literatures and intersect with new/multi-media more broadly.

'This world was unified, first of all, by a common purpose: to provide the corrective of laughter and criticism to all existing straightforward genres, languages, styles, voices, to force men to experience beneath these categories a different and contradictory reality that is otherwise not captured in them.'
