Lateral Aesthetics (Edited Collection)

updated: 
Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 11:50pm
Co-Editors Elizabeth Adan and Benjamin Bateman

In her essay "Slow Death: Sovereignty, Obesity, Lateral Agency," cultural theorist Lauren Berlant contrasts "lateral agency" with the sovereign agency of the neoliberal subject. Where sovereign agency builds, intends, and extends the self via a purposive and propulsive will, lateral agency floats, spreads, and spaces out, interrupting the breakneck pace of capitalist production and suspending the self's forward motion. For Berlant, lateral agency symptomizes the exhaustion and attrition of the individual's will, at the same time as it expresses a kind of pleasure in practices of self-abeyance.

Food: Imaged and Imagined SAMLA (November 8-10, 2013)

updated: 
Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 3:09pm
Marta Hess/South Atlantic Modern Language Association

The papers in this panel investigate the ways that writers, readers, cooks, and consumers image and imagine food in fiction, film, memoir, poetry, cookbooks, and blogs. Food can both connect and divide individuals, communities, and cultures. The papers in this panel will explore the interconnectedness of food, text, and image. Presentations in this session, for example, might examine the material ways that we represent food in photographs and film or the ways that food forms and contributes to the public images of individuals and cultures.
Please email abstracts by June 1, 2013 to mhess@gsu.edu

FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM CONFERENCE VI

"TRAVEL"

LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY
31 OCTOBER-3 NOVEMBER 2013

Submissions are invited for the sixth Foreign Language Film Conference, on the theme of Travel. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to consider questions of travel, movement, location, and travellers in cinematic traditions. How does cinema represent the history, processes, and problematics of moving from one place to another? How does global cinema reflect and articulate the experience of travelling through a world that is increasingly borderless? On the pedagogical side, how do these films prompt classroom discussions of globalization, cultural adaptation, practical necessities, and personal discovery?

English Literary Studies

updated: 
Thursday, March 28, 2013 - 7:49am
Studia Neophilologica

Studia Neophilologica publishes articles on English, German and the Romance languages and literatures, and reviews of books in these fields.

The contributions represent both historically oriented research and synchronic and structural studies, and the journal is not limited to any particular linguistic or literary period. Many articles concern methodological questions within the fields of general linguistics and literary theory. The majority of the contributions, however, investigate specific linguistic problems or deal with specific literary texts.

The journal thus covers a wide and diversified field in its attempt to mirror the problems that concern today's researchers in the fields of English, German and Romance studies.

How do we understand the conventions of courtliness in today's theaters and classrooms?

4th Global Conference
Making Sense of:Suffering

Sunday 10th November 2013 – Tuesday 12th November 2013
Athens, Greece

Call for Presentations
This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to explore if, or to what extent, meaning can be found in suffering. During the course of living our lives, we are invariably forced to stop and question why we suffer – be it through illness, pain, loss, grief or the multitude of distressing circumstances which we encounter. Problems arise in a variety of contexts and due to a bewildering variety of conditions. And because our lives are constant streams of experience, the nature of suffering and consequently the "meaning" of such suffering continually varies and changes.
