International Conference: "The Aesthetics of Decay: Creative Modes of Destruction"

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 12:21pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 1, 2021

Decay as a state of nature is inevitable, yet it is something that could be at least postponed: decay in art as the main decadent idea has been on the cultural front row long enough to make certain conclusions about its essential characteristics. Decay as a philosophical issue is much more complex than its natural incarnation: French Symbolists and, later, fin de siecle authors regarded decay as an inseparable part of any type of cultural cognition. Its original interpretations can be found in the ideas of Schopenhauer, Hartmann, Nietzsche, Wagner, Bergson's intuitivism, modern scientific discoveries and folklore. The art of decay feels the need to justify its aesthetic principles, to explain to the public audience its goals and tasks.

Dear Medieval Studies: Renegotiating the Citational Network (A Roundtable) - ICMS 2022 Kalamazoo, online

updated: 
Wednesday, September 1, 2021 - 2:53pm
Sarah LaVoy / Lisa D. Camp
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

In Dear Science and Other Stories, Katherine McKittrick asks, "What if citations are suggestions for living differently?" (McKittrick 19). McKittrick's work, drawing on Sylvia Wynter, demonstrates the social investment of disciplinary citational networks in colonialist-imperialist, capitalist, heteropatriarchalizing, and racist logics. If we are to dismantle these logics and their effects in Medieval Studies, we must first renegotiate our citational networks.

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Does the body remember what the mind tries to forget? The psychoanalytic tradition grew out of Sigmund Freud's interest in hysteria, and the body's capacity to record painful events in the guise of psychosomatic symptoms. The painful narrative that becomes 'unspeakable' gains potency as it roams around the body, possessing various parts of us. Instead of a wandering womb (originally believed to be the cause of hysteria), it is the banished signifier that wanders, seeking expression.
