"Grey is flexible, malleable; it can be pushed and pulled in different directions, worked and reworked into new, unanticipated materiality and meaning. Grey is not fixed: it both reflects and absorbs light, and it extends the spectrum between black and white, between the extremes of all other colors. Grey has the capacity to move its viewer beyond the materiality of paint. [...] Grey is the color that best describes this perspective on the twentieth century, the metals in which it is built, the factories in which it is produced, the cities in which it is lived" (Guerin, 2018, 7-8).

Comparative Literature as Alternative Humanities Ethics, Affect and the Everyday Social

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

In the last few decades, scholars in the Humanities have found it necessary to examine the fundamental underpinnings upon which their disciplines are built. One of the primary questions that animated this re-examination has been regarding the very terms of our engagement with countries and communities that inhabit radically  different  social  and moral life-worlds, living as they do outside the orbit of European Enlightenment values that still regulate both organization and practice within and outside the academy, across the world.

Call for Papers: Values – axiology – cultures

updated: 
Monday, May 13, 2024 - 1:33pm
UMCS (Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Poland)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 6, 2024

We would like to invite you to submit proposals for articles for thematic issues "Values – axiology – of culture".

The dynamic reality of the second decade of the 21st century makes us think of the surrounding world as a sphere of constant change, full of violent events, breaking ties with what until recently seemed traditional and unchangeable. It also provokes reflection on how the sense of axiological crisis has been dealt with over the centuries, to what extent the methods of overcoming this crisis developed at that time have opened up new perspectives for the development of culture, literature and language, to what degree they have turned out to be a trap, and finally to what extent they are used in contemporary creative activities.

Session Title: The Concept of Visual Translation, Johanna Drucker, Chair 

 

Abstract: The translation of texts is a familiar, if fraught, act that is the subject of considerable thoughtful examination. But is there an equivalent for visual works? This panel looks at examples of cross-cultural or temporal reworkings of images to challenge certain assumptions about self-evident nature of images and even of vision itself.

“Modern?” CFP

 

Saint Louis University—Madrid, June 7-8, 2024

 

The OED defines “modern” as “being in existence at this time; current, present,” but also as something that is “opposed to the remote past.” Given that the concepts of “past,” “present” and “future” are not fixed, but, to paraphrase Einstein, illusory, the meaning of “modern” itself is hard to pin down. 

Last book chapters needed – Anaïs Nin in Context by Cambridge University Press

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Anaïs Nin is a 20th-century diarist and writer who endlessly inspires other authors while generating interest, enthusiasm, and debate among many literary critics and readers.

Cambridge University Press (CUP) has shown interest in the future edited volume Anaïs Nin in Context. This collection aims to delve even further into the exploration of Anaïs Nin as a woman and a writer, her cosmopolitanism, and her influence. In addition, as part of CUP In Context book series, the future Anaïs Nin in Context must have around 30-35 book chapters arranged in different sections and explore contextual aspects of Nin’s life and literary production, instead of the close reading and examination of her literary production.

In accordance with the conference theme, “Translation in Action,” the work of French philosopher Henri Bergson is more than relevant. Bergson’s work was written in French and translations are often offered with notes about the richness of his words and potential loss of meaning. Questions of translation surround and even permeate Bergson philosophy.

Emma Ridder and Brenda Wang, UCLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 29, 2024

Taking up Jennifer Fay’s call to apprehend film as a “technology of the Anthropocene,” this panel investigates how modernists took advantage of film’s ability to capture motion to envision and to reimagine the limits of life, broadly defined. We invite papers that explore how early twentieth-century film experimented with cinematic form to depict movement and vitality as a phenomenon located beyond or in distinction to the human.

MSA 2024: Modernism and Migration across the Atlantic Ocean

updated: 
Sunday, March 24, 2024 - 7:37pm
Modernist Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 4, 2024

The word "opportunity" in today's European languages is rooted in "port" as a coastal city, and "opportune" was first used to describe a wind that would be favorable to the European ships and explorers. As we know, for centuries, ports, seas, and oceans that surrounded Europe were considered as "opportunities" to discover new lands, dominate new populations, and to accumulate wealth.

In his poem "Man and the Sea," Charles Baudelaire, often known as the first modernist poet, addresses "the free man" who embraces the sea, regardless of how wild and indomitable it is, as they both "delight in death and carnage."

Monday, April 15, 2024

December 2022 marked William Gaddis’s (1922-1998) centenary. Reputed during his lifetime for being—in his characters’ words—“difficult as I can make it,” or writing “for a very small audience,” the years since his death have nonetheless seen his work republished in increasingly wide-reaching editions and discussed in numerous online reading groups, with his unpublished archive increasingly studied and brought to public attention.

The present edited collection of academic essays seeks contributions that will challenge, update, expand, or surpass the extant understandings of Gaddis’s work, clarifying what it can offer readers more than a century after his birth.
