Fantasy, Prophecy, and Prediction as Causality Panel

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:46pm
Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Panel Description:

Innovations in tech and science often begin with fantasies that embody a possibility (e.g. Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon, Dick Tracy's TV watch, flip phone communicators in Star Trek, and Neuromancer’s cyberspace as VR). Theory is followed by experimentation and prototyping, and ultimately a convergence with reality (although not without tragic casualties along the way, as in the history of flight and space exploration). In this sense, fantasy can be understood as both precursor and prophet of things-to-come.

Puppet => Machine: The Next Generation Panel

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:44pm
Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Panel Description:

Puppets tread the threshold between human and object. On the one hand, they can appear as ideal revisions of the human, on the other as profoundly inhuman entities, characterized by their impertinent refusal to obey human laws, whether of language, feeling, or even mortality. Puppets exist at the nexus of the conference theme: quotidian objects invested with a fantasy of animation, of interiority, of drives, and independent goal states.

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:41pm
MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 15, 2022

Recent essays and articles in publications like The Atlantic and Vox have voiced growing concerns about the increasing elasticity of “trauma.” Even so, those same texts note the value of recognizing others’ trauma and of responding ethically to their stories. This worth is particularly evident in the wake of the many Covid-related traumatic events and the most recent racial reckonings (that may or may not have occurred) in the US and around the world.

SPECIAL ISSUE INFORMATION

It’s a statistic we hear often: the United States incarcerates more people per capita than any other nation. Yet, many U.S. Americans can go about their daily lives without thinking about their physical proximity to prisons or the people locked within. Prisons have become increasingly removed to rural, remote areas, set back from main highways, not visible from shopping centers, restaurants, and housing developments. Likewise, the U.S. political landscape works hard to obfuscate the realities of life locked up, reducing mass incarceration to shocking statistics. However, prisons remain hidden in plain sight, coming to life in American literature and film.

Totalitarianism & other radical ideologies as social phenomena have always been a scourge of societies big and small.

Contemporaries at Post45 

The Art of Drag (Racing): Reading The Fast and the Furious

Despite its outsized popular impact – which spans 20 years, 9 films, a chart-topping song and several viral memes – The Fast Saga remains under-studied. This call for papers invites sustained inquiry into these films for a collection in Post45’s Contemporaries forum, seeking to understand the implications of this series in and on the cultural imagination, especially given the questions posed by its notable divergence from the action film genre.
