conference at Asilomar in Pacific Grove, California, with an excursion to the Henry Miller Memorial Library in Big Sur. We will

Nahi Hatenge / We Shall Not Move: Perspectives on Muslim belonging in South Asia

updated: 
Sunday, March 24, 2024 - 6:22am
Panel for Annual Conference of South Asia 2024 at Wisconsin-Madison
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 2, 2024

Panel Convener: Shahwar Kibria Maqhfi, UCLA. This panel aims to bring together diverse ideas of being Muslim in contemporary South Asia. We wish to explore multiple articulations and evidence of sameness through sound, image, text, performance, active recollection, and memory, in the context of increased otherisation. We are therefore interested in papers, which explore junctures, events, overlaps, and nodes, situated across time and space, which act as vestibules between the idea of “Muslimness” and “belonging”. Conceptions of Muslim belonging may not only be appended to notions of religiosity, but also explore linkages with class, caste, gender, hegemonies, place making, pioneership, and rootedness.

“The Novel as Global Form. Poetic Challenges and Cross-border Literary Circulation” (Spanish Research Agency, PID2020-118610GA-I00), with the collaboration of the ERC Consolidator Grant project Ocean Crime Narratives -OCN (GA 101043711), and the Arts and
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 22, 2024

The Global Novel Research Project’s final conference gathers scholars pursuing research on the contemporary novel from a global perspective, from any literary and linguistic tradition. The conference topic aligns with the project's objective. We are interested in a new, more integrated, and decentralized perspective in the study of the emergent genre of the global novel, defined as a narrative form that aspires to represent and think about the contemporary world from a global perspective. This new approach will help us better understand how the global novel contributes, discusses and builds global discourses through specific exploratory poetics. Simultaneously, it will help map the uneven circulation of these works within the literary space.

‘Genre and Nation: British and Australian cinema, 1960 – now’ Conference

5-7 September 2024

 

Leeds School of Arts, Leeds Beckett University, UK

 

 

Despite the brutal, colonial origins of Australian settlement, and the ongoing consequences for Indigenous people, an enduring connection between Britain and Australia remains. As Rolfe (2022) argues, until the 1960s, Australians incorporated a dual identity as both Australians and Britons, and although American influence has grown since then– the British/Australian relationship persists and has been widely explored in screen media.

Code as ConversationTransmedia Dialogues Around Critical Code Studies 

University of Cambridge, Saturday 1 June, 2024

‘Hello World!’ is how all computer programmers begin, and it’s how Mark C. Marino opens his manifesto for critical code studies. This elementary exercise in coding, accompanied by the instruction PRINT, demonstrates that “code exists not for machines but for humans who need to communicate with the machine and with other humans.” The code we write enables us to interface with the machine, sitting somewhere between human language and the calculations performed by the computer.

Power has always openly and surreptitiously been involved in deciding whose knowledge matters. Which language and meaning matter to be sensible? Who matters as a human? Whose sufferings matter as grievable?
