CFP – Beyond Borders: Empires, Bodies, Science Fictions

11th-12th September 2020

Keynote Speakers: Dr Nadine El-Enany and Florence Okoye

 

A border, like race, is a cruel fiction
Maintained by constant policing, violence
Always threatening a new map.

from Wendy Trevino, 'Brazilian is Not a Race'

 

As a result of the ongoing crisis this conference will have to take place online, with the possibility of some optional in-person elements. We think now more than ever is a time to question the role of borders in our lives and so we want to proceed with this conversation. If you have any questions or concerns about this please feel free to get in touch. 

Panel: Decolonizing German Studies: Literature of Migration as Catalyst?

updated: 
Thursday, May 7, 2020 - 2:30pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Decolonization is a growing niche in German Studies [e.g. works of Kien Nghi Ha, Dirk Göttsche, Jürgen Zimmerer] – but a niche, nonetheless. Yet Germany has been and is changing. Aladin El-Mafaalani writes: “Die Integration von Teilen in ein Ganzes verändert dieses Ganze” (83, 2018). A (more) diverse Germany necessitates comprehensive contention with its complicated past, laying bare the various structures of oppression that consciously and unconsciously impede or prohibit integration and cohabitation. Furthermore, Decolonial theory necessitates such a discussion, positing that modernity and coloniality are co-constituent: colonialism is not an effect of modernization but an element of its foundation.

Transmotion is seeking submissions on the theme of Transgender, Two-Spirit and Nonbinary Indigenous Literature.

Published at the height of the imperial enterprise, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) has a long and intricate backstory. It is, in fact, the result of centuries of British discovery of and disappointment with the world. One by one, naturalists, amateur anthropologists, merchants, soldiers, diplomats or missionaries from the British Isles discovered the world for the armchair travelers at home and built up their self-esteem by disfiguring countries and regions in writings, paintings, and lectures at the Royal Geographical Society.

Wired China: Digital Media and Online Culture

Monday, April 27, 2020 - 1:24pm
University of Zurich
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 14, 2020

Digital technologies have in the last decade profoundly changed China’s cultural landscape. Messaging apps such as WeChat and Chinese-language podcasts have become important platforms for critical debate, whilst the rising popularity of online platforms for fiction writing, video sharing, shopping, movie ratings and gaming reflect new practices of media consumption and reception. State surveillance and censorship play an important role in China’s wired culture, but web-based cultural activities do not only take place in the shadows of a repressive state but also reflect profound social and cultural transformations, technological developments as well as innovative engagements with traditional aesthetics.

Travel is a vehicle for which to explore the condition of living, how our relationships to place shape us and our experiences, how our identities and political histories inform place, how power structures inform how we migrate (or don’t) and how that affects the places we pass through. --Bani Amor, “Getting Real About Decolonizing Travel Culture” (2017)

“I know the world is bruised and bleeding, and though it is important not to ignore its pain, it is also critical to refuse to succumb to its malevolence. Like failure, chaos contains information that can lead to knowledge — even wisdom. Like art.” - Toni Morrison.

Cfp: Articulating belonging: translingualism, belonging and the creation of South African social collectivities

Friday, May 8, 2020

In the creation of nation-states during the 19th and 20th century, standardized and official languages were of key importance to develop feelings of belonging to social collectivities through the public sphere. However, contemporary global neoliberal conditions have put pressure on Romantic notions such as belonging, togetherness and culture, that used to be seen as the building blocks of national identity. Postcolonial and decolonial debates have, furthermore critiqued the presumed monolingual character of communities and nations (Yildiz 2012; Mignolo 2003) by pointing to their linguistic heterogeneity.

Re: Extended Deadline 24 April: Words, Music and Marginalisation, University of St Andrews, 1-3 September 2020

Dear colleagues,

Many thanks to those of you who have already sent abstracts through for our conference Words, Music and Marginalisation with the WMA Forum in St Andrews in September 2020.

We appreciate that everyone is operating in a state of uncertainty, and with many more personal, professional and family demands on their time than usual. It is impossible at this stage to predict what travel will look like in September, but we recognise that colleagues are not comfortable making arrangements for future travel until things become clearer.
