The term ‘generation’ has played a formative role in literary histories of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to articulate notions of evolution, rupture, and continuity. Its use is, however, not uncontested and has been the subject of intense scholarly scrutiny in literary studies and cultural memory studies over the last two decades. As Astrid Erll has noted, the concept of ‘generation’ is marked by two dimensions: generationality and genealogy. The first term indicates how generations define themselves or are defined on the basis of a shared ‘space of experience’ (Koselleck); the second term points at the relation generations maintain to what or who precedes them.

This three-day event—a two-day conference followed by a workshop on the third day—aims to interrogate the multiple and overlapping global processes underlying three emergent relational fields or modes of enquiry: precarity, populism and post-truth politics. As a network, we are committed to the pursuit of arguments and ideas that will foster articulation of research questions and positions and the construction of one or more interlinked, interdisciplinary projects. We seek to identify the interconnections between precarity, populism and post-truth politics in ways that will enable the development of cross-cutting thematic and theoretical approaches to these manifestations of global inequality, injustice and tension.
ACLA Seminar: Race and Materialisms
The idea of world literature has seen an unparalleled resurgence in the last two decades or so. Through large-scale research grants, publishing programmes, and curricula development it is threatening to become the new critical common sense across the humanities, and particularly in literature departments. However, both in the nineteenth-century idea of Weltliteratur (Goethe, Marx-Engels) and in its more recent revival as the new comparative literature, world literature has many and important genealogical entanglements with colonial/postcolonial histories, and only in recent years have we begun to explore these links critically. Unlike the paradigm of comparative literature, for instance, world literature relies on ‘a translatability assumption’.

The conference aims to delve into the theoretical and practical sides of the most contentious and thought-provoking issues in the realms of ELT, English literature, and translation studies. The theme of the conference this year is Applied Linguistics in the 3rdMillennium: Towards Criticality and Reflection. The participants around the globe are kindly invited to critically reflect and review the fields of applied linguistics in the early years of the third millennium.
Over the past decade, film studies has increasingly taken up the question of the environment and climate change (Rust, Monani, Cubit; Narine; Pick and Narraway). However, the question of “nature” has yet to be comprehensively theorized from the perspective of Latin American cinema. This edited volume proposes to begin to fill this gap by bringing together scholarship that explores Latin American films (from any time period) that foreground the nonhuman. We are specifically interested in thinking about why the past decade has generated an unprecedented boom in ecologically oriented films (both documentaries and fiction) throughout Latin America. How do these films dialogue with or push back against broader theories in ecocriticism?
