ACLA Undergraduate Seminar "Revisiting the City"

Monday, October 10, 2022 - 1:09pm
American Comparative Literature Association Annual Meeting, Chicago, March 16-19, 2023
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 4, 2023

Since antiquity, cities have been pivotal elements in collective and personal histories. As physical and imagined spaces, they have fostered narratives of grandeur and downfall, center and periphery, democracy and imperialism, temporality and spirituality.

The conception and depiction of the city have evolved across time and space, providing different models of social and cultural relations, influencing aesthetic conventions, and generating particular emotions and values, often in contrast with other geographic settings or forms of communal living.

Catherine Malabou places her signature concept of “plasticity” within the material encounters between the Kantian, Hegelian, and Derridean threads of the continental philosophical tradition and emerging developments in neuroscience, epigenesis, and political organization. Her recent work has demonstrated the relevance of these encounters to fields as diverse as trauma studies, gender and queer studies, hermeneutics, anarchism, postcolonialism, artificial intelligence, evolution, anthropogenic climate change, sexuality, and affect studies, to name just a few.

Following a ceremony (winter 2021) in which Barbados officially removed Queen Elizabeth II as head of state, Prince William and Kate Middleton visited Jamaica. They were met with protestors calling for apologies and reparations from the British Crown. At least five other former British colonies besides Jamaica, including Belize, the Bahamas, Grenada, Antigua and Barbuda, and St. Kitts and Nevis have also indicated a desire to sever direct relationships with the British Monarchy. Considering 2023 marks the 210th anniversary of Edward Long’s death, the author of the famous three-volume History of Jamaica (1774), how might we read Long’s illustrated book when the British Caribbean seems less British?

This panel aims to bring together the theoretical, methodological and political concerns of literary animal studies and postcolonial studies. As theoretical frameworks, the intersection of the two is not always free of contention. For instance, certain seminal postcolonial texts such as Frantz Fanon’s Wretched of the Earth have been noted to affirm a strongly humanist position in advancing the political project of reclaiming the humanity of the racialized, colonized subject. Nevertheless, the last decade has seen the growth of a significant body of work in literary studies and other disciplines that considers multispecies entanglements from postcolonial perspectives.

Energy Humanities and the Eighteenth Century

Sunday, October 9, 2022 - 8:21pm
ASECS: American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 24, 2022

It is common for studies in the Energy Humanities to identify the “late eighteenth century” as a backstory to the cultures, industries, and sciences of coal that emerged in the nineteenth century. This panel is interested in questioning that periodization with more complex genealogies or alternate imaginaries of energy throughout the eighteenth century.

In the rapid pivot to remote teaching at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many instructors turned to tools like Hypothes.is and Perusall that allow students to engage in social reading and annotation. These same tools are also built into many digital editions (like those in Literature in Context) and multimedia scholarly publishing platforms like Manifold and Scalar. The Digital Humanities Caucus calls for presentations on annotation in an eighteenth-century and/or contemporary context.

Continually being transformed, the humanities have expanded into a discursive field of trends, movements, and methodologies that have appropriated the thoughts, ideas, and viewpoints from social and other sciences by transgressing and crossing traditional boundaries, limitations, and demarcations. The humanities which traditionally include the study of disciplines such as language, literature, arts, history, culture, and philosophy rarely prove to be “disciplined” as each one often tends to encroach upon prescribed and reserved territories of other disciplines not traditionally humanities labeled.

Video games and environmental imaginaries of the Anthropocene

From cold, creeping survival in the Canadian tundra to neon-cathode dreams of a geoengineered utopia, from the weed-choked ruins of far distant future cities to the shattered landscapes caught under the shadow of nuclear annihilation, numerous video game titles across multiple platforms have in recent years contended with the political ecologies, environmental implications, and apocalyptic manifestations of the Anthropocene.

TV shows as masquerades: blurring the lines between reality and fiction (ACLA 2023)

ACLA 2023
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

The goal of this seminar is to provide a forum in which to discuss how TV shows (reality shows, true crime, documentary broadcasts, docufictions, and web series) bridge the gap between factual knowledge and myths, and how they facilitate the transfer of ordinary knowledge into the implausible, especially in Iberia and Latin America. Entertainment business and journalism intertwine to engage an audience-oriented to the consumption of serialized narratives.

Animation and Comics: In-between Panel and Frame 

Editors: Editors: Sahra Kunz (UCP-EA/CITAR); Ekaterina Cordas (UCP-CECC); Ricardo Megre (UCP-EA/CITAR).

This call aims to pioneer a cross-disciplinary discussion platform that would initiate a fruitful dialogue between the fields of Animation and Comics. Responding to a growing artistic and academic interest in these two media and to the new conceptual, practical and theoretical challenges they pose, we feel the need to provide a space for academics and artists to share ideas about these subjects.

ACLA 2023 Seminar: South Asian Untranslatables

South Asian texts and cultures offer a panoply of terms that are difficult to translate. Consider bhāva — a keyword in premodern philosophy, dramaturgy, and poetics — which may refer to an emotion, a meaning, an essential characteristic, a physical object, a living being, or existence itself. In contemporary South Asia, numerous colloquial terms such as timepass, jugaad, and aunty evoke nuanced existential states, techniques, and relationships that call for careful (and playful) theorization.

Website: decadence-2023.com

This two-day conference aims to connect those who are working on any aspect of Decadence so that they can share their research or projects with the field, learn from one another, and discuss the possible futures that the field might take within—and outside of—academia. This deliberately expansive conference invites short position papers and project presentations related to any and all aspects of Decadence from scholars and artists across the globe.

Muslims in America

Syed Hassan Abidi / NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 15, 2022

The panel intends to explore the depiction of Muslim American identity across various discourses and works of Muslim American authors, filmmakers, novelists, and musicians who draw upon such identities. The diverse emergence of Muslim American identity calls for insights that examine such identities depicted in various forms of text and talk. Keeping in context the theme of NeMLA’s 54th convention “resilience” the session draws on the theoretical underpinnings of Edward Said’s notion of Orientalism in order to further investigate discursive constructions of Muslim identities along with various discourses and the role Muslim Americans play in shaping these identities.

Migration and Identity

Migration is broadly defined as the movement of people from one place to another and the people pursuing this journey are called migrants. However, there are various distinctions within the concept of migration that relates to factors that define if an individual should be considered a migrant, immigrant, refugee, or asylum seeker depending on their length of stay and motivation to migrate. Two major distinctions overarch all forms of movements that individuals make. First, voluntary, and involuntary; second, short term versus long term. Voluntary migrants include sojourners such as people who go abroad to study or visit for business purposes whereas involuntary migrants include refugees and asylum seekers seeking haven from ideology-based persecution.

UMD GEO Annual Conference: Binaries

Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 9:33am
University of Maryland Graduate English Organization
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 2, 2022

The University of Maryland’s Graduate English Organization invites proposals on the topic of “Binaries” for our 16th annual conference, to be held hybrid/in-person on March 3rd, 2023.

Coming from the Latin bīnārius, the Oxford English Dictionary defines “binary” as “Of, pertaining to, characterized by, or compounded of, two; dual.” While this can be seen on one hand as collaborative and additive, binaries are also often understood as oppositional or dichotomous.These competing definitions, then, form a complicated interpretational binary.
