The SAMLA 94 conference theme of “change” encourages us to look at texts in different ways, which might include looking at texts that reflect real change or that perhaps illustrate the appearance of change coupled with a sense, ultimately, of stasis. This theme of “change” gives us a chance to examine Conrad’s authorial engagement with the potential complexities of change in society or politics and in our personal lives.

SUMMER SCHOOL 2022 »TACET AD LIBITUM! TOWARDS A POETICS AND POLITICS OF SILENCE« 24-29 JULY 2022 (Deadline: 1 May 2022)

Silence (tacere or Schweigen) has been considered by Franz Rosenzweig among others as a subversive act or defiant stance of the tragic hero against overwhelming power mechanisms of necessity, i.e., totalization and universality. It has also, however, been regarded as an epiphenomenon (or a result) of marginalization and oppression by postcolonial theorists. The latters’ understanding marks silence as an end, a potential violent effect of the logics of exclusion and marginalization by “signifying machines”. The former understanding marks silence as a means of rendering mechanisms of powers inoperative.

Participation both depends on and produces agency. Therefore, it is always embedded in power structures and power remains unequally distributed. Though empires are long gone, neo-colonial structures of domination continue to exploit the so-called Global South, to privilege Eurocentric knowledge traditions over non- Eurocentric knowledge, and to exclude racialized subjects or people and communities from erstwhile colonized countries from power positions. For decades, postcolonial subjects have worked against imperial forms of oppression. They continuously labor to create space for local and hitherto marginalized world views and experiences. Processes of (self-)translation produce spaces of articulation and enable participation.

CFP Special Issue: Jean Rhys and Modernist ConnectionsIn the 21st century, we no longer think of modernism as one cultural experience. If having a culture dramatically changed overnight and having to come up with new ways to live, in every sphere of life, constitutes modernity, then those trafficked from Africa to the Caribbean faced their own experience of it. Jean Rhys was born and formed in the Caribbean, and in reinventing herself in Europe as a writer, crafted her own modern voice out of many strands of experience and understanding, particularly as a white writer growing up in a Black post-slavery society.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) based approaches have become increasingly popular as “solutions” to curb the extent of mis-, dis- mal-information, hate speech, online violence and harassment on social media. The pandemic and the ensuing work from home policy forced many platforms to shift to automated moderation which further highlighted the inefficacy of existing models (Gillespie, 2020) to deal with the surge in misinformation and harassment.

ISLANDS AND TIME - ISLAND TEMPORALITIES IN THE CONTEXT OF ISLAND RESEARCH

updated: 
Monday, March 28, 2022 - 6:12pm
Narodna umjetnost journal (Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

In the context of the social sciences and humanities, research on islands from a variety of disciplines is primarily characterised by spatiality as a fundamental determinant of island cultures. The frequent emphasis on spatiality has resulted in representations of islands as constrained both in everyday life and geographically and marked by a historicised present and a belated modernity. In doing so, the transformative and dynamic character of culture has often been neglected, as well as the heterogeneity of the lived experience of island communities.
