“One can get to the figure by making clear that every discourse possesses its counterpart, the object of which it speaks, which is over there, like what it designates in a horizon: sight on the edge of discourse.” —Jean-François Lyotard, Discourse, Figure, 7.

 

“Perhaps it is no more than an accident that in our two oldest examples figura occurs in combination with nova; but even if accidental, it is significant, for the notion of the new manifestation, the changing aspect, of the permanent runs through the whole history of the word.” —Erich Auerbach, “Figura,” Scenes from the Drama of European Literature, 12.

Adapt, Adopt, Adept: The Material Phenomenon

March 23rd and 24th

BP Energy Center, Anchorage, AK

 

Adaptation, in its various forms and mediums, is, according to Linda Hutcheon, often viewed as “minor and subsidiary and certainly never as good as the ‘original.'” At a base understanding, audiences understand adaptation as the process or product of change. Adaptation theory proposes that the many facets of adaptation, such as adoption, translation, shifting, modeling, and even appropriation, are complicated processes and products not easily defined.

In the last five years or so, rhetoric and composition scholarship has offered work that brings digital media and bodies to the forefront to shape pedagogical praxis, illuminate cultural practices, and extend composition studies (into writing studies). Yet, much of this scholarship remains focused on the rhetorical construction of embodiment, as indicated by several recent journal special issues: Perspectives and Definitions of Digital Rhetoric (Enculturation 23 2016), Wearable Rhetorics: Bodies, Cities, Collectives (Rhetoric Society Quarterly 46.3 2016), Embodied and Affective Rhetorics (Present Tense 6.1 2016), Embodied Sound (Kairos 21.1 2016), and Sexing Colorlines: Black Sexualities, Popular Culture, and Cultural Production (Poroi 7.2 2011).

PANEL: The Void and its Borders: Building Meaning in Contemporary Poetry and Arts

On the Period Formerly Known as the Program Era (NeMLA 2018)

In The Program Era and “On The Period Formerly Known as Contemporary,” Mark McGurl and Amy Hungerford have offered compelling narratives for periodizing and framing the post-45 literary field. But despite Hungerford’s acknowledgment that global watershed events are difficult to perceive, it it simultaneously difficult not to think that, in the past two years, “everything has changed.” In fact, as cataloged by the Post45 group, over ¾ of the proposals for the recent Princeton conference “The Contemporary” involved “post-” as a concept. If these shifts are real, then an important new question emerges: In what ways has the post-2016 moment changed, revised, or even departed from these previously guiding understandings of post-45?
