An Interdisciplinary Conference on "Displacement, Emplacement, and Migration"

updated: 
Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 2:26pm

Migration is one of the most prominent cultural, socio-political, and economic questions of our time. In both industrialised and less developed countries, it would be hard to find people who do not have a personal experience of migration and its effects, which ultimately ‘become the hallmark of the age of migration’ (Castles et al., 2013). According to the World Migration Report 2020, international migrants consist of only 3.6% (281 million) of the world population, and they make ‘significant sociocultural, civic-political and economic contributions in origin and destination countries and community’ (WMR, 2020). However, a great majority of people do not migrate across borders; instead, a large number of people migrate within countries.

Cinema at International Film Festivals : A virtual conference 7-11 December 2021

updated: 
Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 9:49am
Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 20, 2021

The virtual conference explores  how contemporary cinema negotiates the spaces at international film festivals. Our scope includes contemporary cinema from different parts of the world, including India and non-English speaking countries. The growing presence and proliferation of film festivals in their varied manifestations leads us to posit: What is the nature of contemporary transnational cinema that is attracting international attention? How does  this intersection play out in global reception, marketing, exhibition and  distribution? What kinds of academic and theoretical interventions can emerge from this development?

Collaborative Intellectual Labor Today

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

In recent decades, the practice of collaborative intellectual labor has had an unexpected resurgence, both among writers and artists, and within scholarly and academic spaces. Drawing on a rich history of intellectual, activist, and artistic practices of collaboration, new collectives and research groups have embraced collaborative forms of knowledge production to challenge the individualization of intellectual labor and the demands of the neoliberal episteme.

(ACLA 2022) The Elemental and The Formless

updated: 
Saturday, October 9, 2021 - 3:44pm
Oliver Aas (Cornell University)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

This seminar departs from the idea that we need a clearer understanding of elemental forms—traditional and non-traditional—that are in different stages of becoming formless (loss, disappearance, transmutation etc.). On the one hand, we build up on the critical genealogy of the formless (l’informe), a concept once popularized by Bataille in the surrealist journal Documents (1929-30) and later taken up by Bataille’s readers, most famously by Rosalind Krauss & Yves-Alain Bois (1997) and Georges Didi-Huberman (1995). While, on the other hand, we also welcome proposals that conceptualize the formless through different disciplinary vantage points and bring it to bear on the question of elemental forms.

"Future of Cities / Future Beyond Cities"

 

In the last decades, cities around the world have experienced unprecendented economic, political, social, and spatial transformations. As these changes bring new challenges for the ways in which we categorize the boundaries of the urban and the definitions of the city, urban theorists have been condering the possibilities of the twenty first century bringing in post-urban stage.

ACLA: Literature After Rights

updated: 
Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 9:33am
American Comparative Literature Association 2022 Annual Meeting
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

For over a decade now, the interdisciplinary study of human rights and literature has offered a generative lens for thinking about questions of citizenship, the nation-state, and narrative form. Scholars have studied the human rights novel (James Dawes), the co-constitution of human rights and the bildungsroman (Joseph Slaughter), literary and cinematic depictions of torture (Elizabeth Swanson Goldberg), and the rights-based political imaginations of American writers of color (Crystal Parikh), among other projects. These approaches have emphasized the discursivity of human rights: literature does not represent a static conception of human rights but rather helps shape understandings of what human rights are or could be.

 

Theory and the Novel (ACLA 2022)

Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 7:56am
Athanassia Williamson (NYU) and Christina Gilligan (Brown)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

What does a novel do? Recent theoretical work on the novel has tended to emphasize the novel’s facility for world-making—for the organization of all its different elements within a global whole (Cheah / Hayot / Woloch). Figured as a composite of relations, the novel is ascribed a constructive conceptuality (Levine / Kornbluh). The novel makes a world. Perhaps some of the strongest, recent theorizations of the novel along these lines, in literary criticism, have come from within new formalism—a formalist movement with roots in both New Criticism and Marxist literary criticism.

CFP: YOUNG SCHOLARS Session

Conference: Crossing the Border of Humanity: Cyborgs in Ethics, Law, and Art

December 14–15, 2021

Medical University of Łódź, Poland & University of Warwick, Coventry, UK

 

The idea of being a cyborg is as alluring as it is be repulsive (at least to some). Literary and pop-cultural visions of becoming a cyborg and becoming a nation of cyborgs have seductively taken hold of our imagination, resulting in a prevalent, yet simplistic, image of a one-laser-eyed being with a robotic limb. This unanimous picture ostensibly evident what a cyborg is and what (s)he/it is not. We are, after all, by no means something like a Borg!

Experimental Form, Experimental Thought? ACLA 2022 Seminar

Aili Pettersson Peeker / University of California, Santa Barbara
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

Today, experiments about how humans think usually take place in a lab, allowing researchers to locate thought processes in the brain with unprecedented precision. However, writers have experimented with thinking for much longer. For instance, Virginia Woolf argued in her essay “Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid" (1940) that a new form of (women's) writing can cause a shift in how British men think and bring about peace. Between the Acts (1941) demonstrates how tone, rhythm, and diction can produce different cognitive registers—Elizabethan, Enlightenment, and Victorian—thus connecting form and cognition.

Victoria Baena, Kathleen DeGuzman
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

In this seminar, we hope to rethink long-held associations between novel and nation-state in light of recent insights from oceanic studies, archipelagic studies, as well as transatlantic, transpacific, and Indian Ocean contexts. What kinds of genres and narrative frameworks unfold from a maritime, as opposed to land-based, perspective? How do novelists negotiate these commitments across multiple scales—and what ways of reading emerge by centering islands, coasts, ports, and other liminal spaces?

The Stage and Beyond: International Conference on Culture and Performing Arts

Monday, October 18, 2021

Humanity as a whole and on a global scale has had to reflect on how it would proceed in the wake of a pandemic that has lasted longer than it has expected and has tested its ability to adapt to and invent new ways of being and moving. Performing artists in efforts to literally and aesthetically survive has had to learn to deal with the limited availability of and accessibility to the stage. While in previous times indoor and outdoor stages as well as open public spaces have been readily available to offer their work to audiences, now they are forced to deal with isolation and mediation.
