MARSHALL MCLUHAN AND THE ARTS

The artist tends now to move from the ivory tower to the control tower of society.
—Marshall McLuhan, Understanding Media (1964)

This special issue exploring “Marshall McLuhan and the arts” encourages new approaches to the study of McLuhan’s influential theses on perception, design, and the built environment as well as the artist’s changing role in postindustrial society. Submissions will excavate previously unknown, or lesser-known, narratives and linkages, and/or engage contemporary resonances and possibilities for intersection with current critical theories and debates.

In Le Surréalisme et l’après-guerre, Tristan Tzara asked:

Have we found a solution to the problems that brought about this war? Where is the end of this war, this shredded end that prolongs itself in each individual, bringing about new questions and temporary solutions and necessary but makeshift repairs and the crushing weight of pains and destructions and the gravity of wounds that are still raw? There is no war now, but there is no après-guerre yet.

ACLA 2017: "Feeling Collective"

American Comparative Literature Association 2017, Utrecht

This panel hopes to investigate affect as that which disturbs the binary logic structuring contemporary discourses on collectivity. What happens when, rather than thinking of affect’s circulation as “mediating” between subjectivity and collectivity, we allow affect to unsettle this dyad? What does it mean for affect to render undecidable the relation between individual and collective, or to orient us towards a relation possessed of no advance guarantees? How does negative affect—for example, Sedgwick’s notion that shame throws the question of identity into relief—augment normative notions of self-possession towards new understandings of relationality?

CFP Call for Publication: “Journeys: Literal, Metaphorical or Imaginary”

Friday, September 9, 2016 - 2:24pm
Journal of South Texas English Studies (JOSTES)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2016

The Journal of South Texas English Studies is now welcoming submissions for its Fall 2016 issue, themed “Journeys: Literal, Metaphorical or Imaginary.” Submission deadline: October 31, 2016. ‘Journey’ is a word that evokes images and feelings of freedom, escape, newness, experience, and curiosity. Within English studies, a journey may be literal, requiring movement across borders and spaces; figurative journeys often develop the inner dynamic of a character; and whimsical voyages, on the other hand, take place in the mind—the ultimate creative, uncharted territory.
