NeMLA 2021: Examining Contemporary Representations of Armed Conflict (Panel)

Thursday, June 4, 2020 - 11:52am
Katie Harling-Lee / Durham University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020


This session will analyze representations of armed conflict in contemporary media, exploring how these representations might influence the popular understanding of global and civil conflict and the way that these representations of conflict might be read as an attempt to change (or maintain) a certain world. We welcome a broad range of papers, particularly aiming for a global perspective on the ethical debate of representing armed conflict in stylized media, as we interrogate how these representations might affect popular imaginations of conflict and how we as researchers might form an analytical approach to representations of conflict.

15th Annual Conference of the German Society for Comics Studies (ComFor) | 8 to 10 October 2020 | Online

ComFor’s 15th annual conference aims to intensify a dialogue between the various disciplinary approaches to the medium of comics and related popular narrative images (including manga, graphic novels or cartoons) by focusing on the concept of medial, mediated, and mediating agency. Building on perspectives from actor-network theory and subsequent approaches to a possible actor-media theory, the conference aims to reconstruct the complexities of distributed agency within historical and contemporary cultures of comics.

Panel: Decolonizing German Studies: Literature of Migration as Catalyst?

Thursday, May 7, 2020 - 2:30pm
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Decolonization is a growing niche in German Studies [e.g. works of Kien Nghi Ha, Dirk Göttsche, Jürgen Zimmerer] – but a niche, nonetheless. Yet Germany has been and is changing. Aladin El-Mafaalani writes: “Die Integration von Teilen in ein Ganzes verändert dieses Ganze” (83, 2018). A (more) diverse Germany necessitates comprehensive contention with its complicated past, laying bare the various structures of oppression that consciously and unconsciously impede or prohibit integration and cohabitation. Furthermore, Decolonial theory necessitates such a discussion, positing that modernity and coloniality are co-constituent: colonialism is not an effect of modernization but an element of its foundation.
