deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 26, 2023

Currently soliciting abstracts (approximately 250-300 words with additional 100 words of author bio) for an edited collection discussing the role of cultural trauma in early modern English society. I am interested in essays focusing on Shakespeare/early modern theater as well as other realms of early modern life – political, religious, etc. Of particular interest are projects focusing on the role of race/racism in making traumatic meanings on the early modern stage. Collection has tentative interest from a major publisher. If the proposal is  accepted, final drafts will be due in/around January 2024. Final drafts should be 5000 – 7000 words inclusive of notes/bibliography.

Care, hope, resilience: critical emojis in the age of permacrisis 

What is the connection between the current state of permanent crisis, now expressed in its own brand-new word,*  and the proliferation of critical buzzwords in contemporary culture? Care, hope, resilience: ubiquitous in social commentary from academic research to popular journalism and social media, these terms behave more like emojis than elements of systematic thought.  Are they useful short cuts to a comprehension of shifting social imaginaries in the age of permacrisis?  Or a dangerous limitation of the mental energies we need to think our way to a more positive of future?

FRAME 36.2 "Writing Sex"

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 14, 2023

From the ancient text of the Kama Sutra, the first script that studied sexual intercourse as science (Chakraborty and Thakurata), to the 2011 cult novel Fifty Shades of Grey, sex figures in literature in many different ways. That is, if it figures at all. While in the Victorian era “silence became the rule” on the subject of sex (Foucault), Preciado writes that today sex and the discourse surrounding it have silently “turned into governmental agents” of power.

Contemporary Global Feminisms – Solidarity Across Differences

Taking place 13 June 2023, Birkbeck University and online

Deadline for CfP: 24th April 2023, 9:00 AM

Since its initiation in 2016, the CHASE Feminist Network has been in conversation with many of the transitions that took place within academia and the world at large. During this period, the attitudes towards and within feminism have also experienced vast shifts, where intersectionality has permeated the mainstream just as dividing lines have been erected between the feminisms of varying kinds. Yet at its core, there remains the reverberation of solidarity against patriarchal oppression, which is ever-present in our contemporary moment.

Panel: "Emersonian Perspectives"

Sponsored by the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society

 

The Ralph Waldo Emerson Society invites papers that explore the conference theme “Shifting Perspectives” in the context of Emerson’s work and reception. Contributions may address how perspective informs Emerson’s philosophy, aesthetics, poetics and politics. They may also explore in what ways Emerson’s work teaches us to shift our approaches to reading, thinking, feeling, writing and teaching. Finally, they may also show how other philosophers, poets and artists shift our perspective on Emerson.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2023

This panel will focus on the short fiction of Jorge Luis Borges and Affect Theory broadly construed. Papers analyzing any short story from Borges' many collections (e.g., Ficciones, The Book of Sand, Shakespeare's Memory etc.) along with any affect-focused reading are welcome. With analyses of the often enigmatic, and occasionally cryptic, atmospheres of Borges’ fiction, the aim of this panel is to add to (perhaps even shift!) discourses on the conceptualization of affect.

The conference ‘Post-Pandemic Condition: Biopolitics in the Aftermath of the COVID-19’ revisits the concept of biopolitics by asking how the pandemic has redefined the political field and what new concepts and prospects it can offer for conceptualising our post-pandemic condition. 

Exploring human dominance, gender, and heteronormativity through cyborgs and AI in films

updated: 
Friday, March 24, 2023 - 9:11am
PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2023

Films have for a very long time been used to form a narrative that may oppose what the heteronormative society believes and that is why probably it is one of the most popular forms of artistic expression. When we think of films like Her or the Japanese anime Ghost in the Shell we see the use of technology in brilliant ways. It shows how easily humans are replaceable emotionally as well as physically. But how well do these films and many others like these refute the social conditioning that often clouds our visions? Is the world of cyborgs too dystopian for humans to survive in? Or just like any ‘other’ cyborgs and AI will just become another way for the powerful in the human world to exert dominance?
