MLA 2023 Ricoeur's Interpretation Theory and Our Work Now (Special Session)

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 6:58pm
Nate Mickelson, New York Univ
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 16, 2022

Paul Ricoeur insisted there is always more meaning than can be articulated, appropriated, or understood. This session seeks enactments, explorations, and reconsiderations of his Interpretation Theory 50 years later. Though the book was published in 1976, Ricoeur delivered the lectures in fall 1973. It was a period of social and intellectual reckoning similar to our own. Ricoeur had recently relocated to the University of Chicago from Paris-Nanterre under criticism for his attempts to mitigate conflicts during the 1968 student uprisings. In parallel with this personal crisis, Ricoeur was turning in his thought from considerations of symbolic interpretation to considerations of texts and their social and political dimensions.

(UPDATED) Edited volume: Narratives of Gendered Abuse in Academia

updated: 
Monday, February 14, 2022 - 5:49pm
Mary K Holland, SUNY New Paltz and Carrie Rohman, Lafayette College
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

While the #MeToo movement as a cultural, feminist, and antiracist force has been slowly and steadily uncovering and altering landscapes of gendered harassment and abuse across our society, academia itself as an abusive culture has remained fairly immune to these critiques. Recent events at Harvard, where senior scholars immediately lined up in support of a colleague accused of habitually harassing students, only to withdraw that support later, are sadly typical of the kneejerk defense of institutions and disregard for victims that characterize such cases. Scholars such as Sarah Ahmed have forcefully critiqued academic culture, helping us begin to theorize its endemic harassment and abuse.

Nexus Grad Conference Roundtable "From Interrogation and Critique to Dreaming and Doing: Postcritical Futures in Literary Studies"

updated: 
Sunday, February 6, 2022 - 11:43am
University of Tennessee
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 21, 2022

In 2004, Bruno Latour published his seminal essay “Why Has Critique Run Out of Steam: Turning from Matters of Fact to Matters of Concern.” In the nearly twenty years following, there have been several literary scholars who have ruminated on this topic. We have since seen a rise of close reading (Heather Love, Sharon Marcus, S. Best) methodologies and theoretical frames regarding the usefulness (Rita Felski, 2008 and Sara Ahmed) of literature and literary studies. Yet, we still seem to be asking if what we do matters.

Building Professional Dispositions for Undergraduate Humanities Majors

updated: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 7:03pm
MLA 2023 // San Francisco, CA (5-8 Jan. 2023)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

Professional development prepares humanities majors for post-baccalaureate success and undermines myths about weak career outcomes, yet too often, it remains an afterthough rather than an integral component of undergraduate curricula. Furthermore, increasing professional development opportunities for undergraduates also has programmatic benefits for recruitment and retention, not least becuase such programs better equip faculty and students to more effectively articulate the value of the humanites to public life, and the applicability of humanities across public, private, and volunteer sectors.
