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

Friday, July 1, 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.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Accumulation and Excess

 

Accumulation and excess are rich, polymorphic concepts that can speak to local and global histories, radical filmmaking traditions and other poetic acts of defiance, or even the basic sensory schemata through which we experience our social and aesthetic environments. We seek to experiment openly with the articulation and intersection of these terms, as we examine how they are mediated, developed, and problematized by film, television, and other audiovisual forms.

Expanding Black and Indigenous Ecologies: CFP for English Language Notes

updated: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 7:11am
Bonnie Etherington and Delali Kumavie
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

This proposed special issue navigates the intersections of Black and Indigenous ecologies. Ecologies encompass natural and constructed environments, understories, and overstories that allow renewed attention to notions of mobility, modernity, protest, climate change, human and nonhuman relationality, and more. Ecologies shape and are shaped by macro as well as micro units of the community, the nation-state, and the global. Ecologies are also fundamental to the ways we approach and understand historical, social, political, and economic relationships around the world.

Reimagining #MeToo in South Asia And the Diaspora (Edited Collection of Essays)

updated: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 6:59am
Dr. Nidhi Shrivastava
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

This edited volume seeks to examine how sexual violence and feminist interventions in South Asia and the Diaspora have been articulated in the context of but, more importantly, in opposition to the #MeToo Movement. We seek to understand how the feminist movement has radically diverged from the assimilationist discourse of the #MeToo Movement and, consequently, the Global North. The #MeToo movement has not made an impact at the grassroots level because it is hinged on the victim-survivor to speak up. In an era where the Global North has been a model for influencing change in the Global South, there has been an inconspicuous absence of recognition and impact of the #MeToo Movement.

Reading Spatially: Summer School for PhD Researchers (Tampere, Finland, 20-22 June 2022)

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
Tampere University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 31, 2021

This summer school, aimed at PhD researchers with a spatially oriented project in fields such as literary and cultural studies, film and visual culture studies, or cultural geography, asks what it means to read spatially – or to read for space – in practice. Recent decades have seen an explosion of spatially oriented approaches to the analysis of literary texts and other forms of cultural production. Ranging from literary geography and cultural cartography to geocriticism, geopoetics, material ecocriticism, and new forms of spatial phenomenology, these approaches offer exciting avenues for thinking about the many dimensions of real and imagined space.

Gardening to Remember, Gardening to Forget Gardening as Memory Work in Contemporary Fiction

Dr. Deniz Gundogan Ibrisim, Sabanci University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

Gardening is generally considered as an affective-material labor whereby, plants, soil, matter, and objects are transformed—through practices of care, love, and attention—into new well-planned landscapes, vegetation, and a good harvest.  Even though early writing, in Latin and Greek was more concerned with agriculture than gardening, writing about gardens has a long history in France and England, an tends to be rhetorical — in an attempt to tie the beauty and harmony found in great landscapes to higher artistic pursuits.

In this course, students will explore the ways in which sf writers deny mainstream representations of gender, sexuality, culture, nationality, and race by crafting stories that pulls in, rather than leaves out underrepresented groups of people. During the course we will focus on texts either by sf writers or about sf that allow us to re-think the mainstream. Through the focus on these texts we will ultimately assess the extent to which literature, particularly sf, acts as a vehicle for socio-cultural, and ideological change. 

 

As we read, view, and discuss these texts, we will pursue the following:

In addressing the MMLA conference theme, “Post-Now,” the permanent section on “English Literature Before 1800” welcomes papers exploring any moments in pre-1800 literary scenes and contexts that relates our cultural moment.  Topics may include, but are by no means limited to, representation, identity categories (race, class, gender, age, sexuality, disability, etc.), technologies, political movements, audience responses, and any other critical issues from any period and genre. Reflections on pedagogy and classroom practices that address the “Post-Now” theme are welcome.
