The past few decades have been crucial for the dismantling of theory, formerly understood as a monolithic concept, applicable to a wide range of epochs and regions. Rather than a timeless or non-spatial concept, theory represents “a historically circumscribed mode of thinking about literature” (Galin Tihanov). Researchers informed by Edward Saidʼs “traveling theory” (James Clifford, Caren Kaplan, Mieke Bal) have also insisted on the enormous pressure of context in shaping and reshaping theory. Convincing metanarratives of itinerant international canonization in the 20th century literature (Mads Rosendahl Thomsen) have opened the theoretical debate.

(Im)possibility marks a limit of available information, a threshold of representation, a cessation of action. Thinking at the limits of the possible gives rise to a specific set of issues: how might we articulate that which cannot be said? How might we orient ourselves toward that for which no available theory or representation is adequate?

Environment is a fluid, elastic word. After combing the lengthy list of the many meanings of environment in a trusty Merriam Webster dictionary, one arrives at the French roots of the term: that which surrounds. The Graduate Student Association of the American Culture Studies Program at Bowling Green State University invites scholars to an interdisciplinary symposium focused on exploring the multilayered meanings of the term environment using the broadest definition of the term as a common ground for meeting and commingling.

The Object as Process. Call for Essays Situating Artistic Practice (DEADLINE EXTENDED)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 4:21am
German A. Duarte
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Objective

As a research team devoted to artistic practice, we are motivated by the questions: How does artistic practice lead to the production of knowledge? How does, in turn, artistic knowledge relate to its material base? How does contingent materiality guide the artist towards finding form and developing a statement?

The proposed volume is consecrated to the object as a process in order to offer new insights into the ways the object (broadly construed, comprising digital and other non-classical objects) becomes an active element in artistic practice. This exploration intends to furnish a better understanding of artistic production.

Discussing the epic and the novel, Mikhail Bakhtin refers to a “historical struggle of genres” that underwrites “the establishment and growth of a generic skeleton of literature.” Literature as a diverse discursive domain consists of various forms and genres that shape and functionalize it. There is a thin line between specific literary forms and genres. Is novel a form or genre? If novel is a form, we can think of particular genres of the novel such as gothic, whodunit, comedy, historical drama and so on. On the other hand, if novel is a genre, there are literary forms such as realism, naturalism, pastiche, parody, etc.
