“Difference must be not merely tolerated, but seen as a fund of necessary polarities between which our creativity can spark like a dialectic” - Audre Lorde (1984)

 

“Living as I have argued we do in the wake of slavery, in spaces where we were never meant to survive, or have been punished for surviving and for daring to claim or make spaces of something like freedom, we yet reimagine and transform spaces for and practices of an ethics of care (as in repair, maintenance, attention), an ethics of seeing, and of being in the wake as consciousness; as a way of remembering and observance that started with the door of no return, continued in the hold of the ship and on the shore.” - Christina Sharpe (2016)

 

Continentalizing Global Modernism @ MLA 2021

Friday, March 20, 2020

As the ambit of global modernist studies expands, the place of continental Europe in the geography of modernism is something of a quandary. Indeed, the continent’s place was never very clear to begin with. In her foundational essay “Periodizing Modernism,” Susan Stanford Friedman criticizes a disciplinary bias that favors Anglo-American modernism at the expense of writing from postcolonial nations. Yet Friedman also notes that the old, chiefly Anglo-American modernist studies possessed only a “limited continental scope.” Thus the turn to the globe––that is, the turn away from Europe––has consigned the continent to the disciplinary past when, according to Friedman, it was a marginalized domain in the first place.

The Uncanny in Language, Literature and CultureInternational Conference15 August 2020 – London, UKorganised byLondon Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”.

Over the past 10 years, we have witnessed a number of efforts to reimagine African life from the vantage of a future “yet to come,” to borrow AbdouMaliq Simone’s resonant expression. From new science fiction narratives that seeks to delineate their own visions of tomorrow, to scholarly collections that seek to trace the prospects of emergent phenomena, to nonprofit organizations and think tanks that have organized festivals, workshops, and art projects devoted to imagining African futures, there has been a growing sentiment that African thinkers would benefit from taking an active role in the construction of future-oriented imaginaries.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Dr. Chandan Reddy

Associate Professor, Department of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies

University of Washington

 

Race is not only about identity or skin colour. Capitalism has been racialized from its origins, and has produced a modern world system that derives economic value from the commodification of racial identities through slavery, imperialism, and genocide. Furthermore, racial capitalism has been accompanied by biopolitical technologies that regulate sexuality and enforce heteronormativity making it also a gendered process.

Vergil’s Aeneid is, of course, a longtime standard of the liberal arts curriculum. However, it has seen revived interest outside the academy. Since 2017, Vergil’s epic has featured in articles in the Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The New Yorker. All three articles argue that the Aeneid speaks as much to modernity as it does to antiquity. Mendelsohn’s New Yorker piece put it best, writing,

"African Perceptions of the Black Diaspora"

It is not surprising that the diaspora, in its representations of the origin seeks to establish and maintain the links with the dreamed motherland for everything leads to think that the place left, voluntarily or because of political, historical and even natural contingencies, do not leave the diasporic subject. Confronted with an in-between situation, his creative work articulates different identities, opposing cultures and a vague memory of the origin. But how does this origin think and represent its diaspora? This is the central question of this anthology, essentially dedicated to Africa.
