Modernity is often defined as a series of political, social, and economic shifts related to the emergence of an autonomous subject. Nevertheless, there is a lack of consensus of how to measure the underlying forces driving this supposed change of paradigm. In light of recent approaches to subjectivity, we invite participants to circulate 5-8 pages papers (with theoretical or empirical foci on the topic) and discuss them after a brief presentation. The goal of the seminar is therefore to interrogate the condition of the “early modern subject” through the analysis of established binaries such as (but not limited to) unity/plurality, transcendence/immanence, individual/communal, East/West, local/global, medieval/modern, etc.

The literary productions of eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century African diasporic thinkers are widely acknowledged as the discursive corrective to African enslavement and colonization under Western hegemonic domination. Olaudah Equiano’s, David Walker’s, and Frederick Douglass’s works emphasize the significance of ancient African history and agitate for the abolition of chattel slavery; in the early twentieth-century, W.E.B. Du Bois’s Black Reconstruction (1935) and C.L.R. James’s The Black Jacobins (1938) contest the Eurocentricity of traditional Marxian thought by highlighting the import of enslaved African labor to the development of the modern Western capitalism.

Philosophizing Performance, Performing Philosophy

Performance philosophy has been in development for the past decade as an interdisciplinary approach to performance studies. The contemporary global reality and political-economic situations have called forth performances that operate within new frames of reference and use new technologies. Understanding the complex politics of these new performances requires a fresh theorizing, a specifically contemporary philosophy of performance. The ‘crossover’ of performance and philosophy hybridizes the spaces between and around the two ‘conceptual personae’ (Deleuze and Guattari). The present areas of conceptual interrogation include radical interventionist studies of existing philosophies to place performance into perspective.

Baltimore, Maryland, has been the home of several important African American authors, including Frederick Douglass and Frances E. W. Harper.  In addition to these major writers who influenced the emergence of African American protest literature of the tumultuous nineteenth century, there are several other significant writers of prose and poetry who have lived in the city and created African American literature. Notable examples include Zora Neale Hurston, Countee Cullen, Waters Turpin, Eugenia Collier, and Lucille Clifton.

In keeping with this year’s broad PAMLA conference theme, “Archives, Libraries, Properties,” the Comparative Media panel seeks submissions for 15-20 minute presentations dealing with the interrelationships between various media forms and/as archives, libraries, and properties. The panel welcomes presentations that define the panel’s key terms – archives, libraries, properties, and media – broadly, and use them in productive tension and collaboration with one another. Presentations that seek to creatively disrupt the traditional media forms of conference presentations – thinking the conference itself as a kind of library or archive of performed academic properties – will be particularly welcome.

Comics are a medium that has transformations in both form and content. Their form centers on the transition of one image to another in sequence; as with any narrative, it often focuses on the development of a dynamic character, and in superhero stories, with the additional metamorphosis of a person’s very body and identity.

As our daily lives have grown more and more dominated by technology and by a corresponding fascination with the “new,” there’s been a counter movement interested in reexamining the ways of “the past.”  Whether it is handmade books, craft-made pickles, vintage automobiles, or handlebar mustaches, indeed the cliché often seems true now: what’s old is new again.
