“Re-storying” Social Justice: Constructing Coalition at the Intersections of Theory, Community, Positionality, and Practice
By “re-storying,” I mean a retelling and imagining of stories that restore and continue cultural memories… [a] radical disruption of master narratives through the telling and retelling of stories that disrupt dominant formations of history and culture.

“Not all of us can say, with any degree of certainty, that we have always been human, or that we are only that.”

“The ordinary is a shifting assemblage of practices and practical knowledges, a scene of both liveness and exhaustion, a dream of escape or of the simple life.” - Kathleen Stewart, Ordinary Affects
Algorithmic technologies are nowadays proliferating in various sectors of the economy and, more generally, in society. Yet, while their widespread development already occupies several areas of contemporary life, their material configuration often remains opaque and difficult to comprehend, especially when it comes to how algorithms shape the futures of people and societies at large. Often, algorithms and AI technologies are conceived by their users and creators as “magic” that is beyond comprehension — an understanding that has a range of political and cultural implications for society (Campolo & Crawford, 2020) and has been consequently recognized in the theorizations of economy and politics (Pignarre & Stengers, 2012).
Online Conference: Women and Comedy 1890 - 1950
(Sponsored by the International Conference of The Elizabeth von Arnim Society)
17th- 18th September 2022
Having accepted papers on a range of fascinating writers and topics, we have responded to feedback from international participants and have decided to convert this conference from a face-to-face event in Cambridge to a fully-online event.
As a result, we’re delighted to open the conference to those who were unable to join us in person but are interested in participating online, via this supplementary call for papers.
There has always been a need to adapt and disrupt conventions to tell one’s story and now there are almost as many forms of life writing as there are different lives. The boundaries of representation are continually being pushed. ‘Life’s Not Personal: A Creative-Critical Conference on Experimental Life Writing’ seeks to explore these narratives from both theoretical and practice-based perspectives.
This year’s California State University, Dominguez Hills English Graduate Association Spring Conference theme, SURGE: Writing Beyond The Binary, evokes transcendence of false dichotomy in many realms: gender, politics, race, class, sexuality, emotional well-being, literary criticism, and so much more. As writers, researchers, and scholars, we wield the power to reinforce or dispel reductive binary distinctions in our work, making it our job to SURGE ahead through these and other barriers toward portraying and creating a more inclusive, accepting, understanding world. While we work to re-energize our lives and refill the spaces we re-enter, how we choose to forge ahead will make all the difference.

Since the introduction of large-scale quarantine and social distancing measures in March 2020, literature conferences have increasingly turned toward examining themes of "emergency" and "crisis." In the midst of this proliferating focus on conditions of catastrophe, however, we might also ask what modes of life, affect, and community formation persist even beyond, alongside, or within crisis. Can we conceive of crisis not as a totalizing event that defines all forms of vitality that exist within its purview, but as a lived environment in which we can discover and facilitate forms of ongoingness that resist the surrounding catastrophes?

Many scholars have questioned what the rise of globalization, facilitated through new forms of technology, could mean for our ability to study and reach larger audiences. While some media practitioners and researchers have struggled to keep pace, changes to global technologies also present the benefits of accessibility and creativity. Due to the impacts of Covid-19, global media has become an ever more vital avenue for continuing typical social practices in scholarship and artistic endeavors like conferences and performances. This interdisciplinary conference seeks to interrogate the methodologies that have arisen with media development around the world.
