In this seminar, we hope to rethink long-held associations between novel and nation-state in light of recent insights from oceanic studies, archipelagic studies, as well as transatlantic, transpacific, and Indian Ocean contexts. What kinds of genres and narrative frameworks unfold from a maritime, as opposed to land-based, perspective? How do novelists negotiate these commitments across multiple scales—and what ways of reading emerge by centering islands, coasts, ports, and other liminal spaces?

When, in his Preface to Lyrical Ballads (1802), William Wordsworth insisted that an “overbalance of pleasure” entails the “circumstance of meter,” he confirmed a philosophical assumption far older than Kant’s theory of the sublime. The pervasive assumption—which, today, can be tracked in an on-going “affective turn” (necessarily entangled in matters of form and style)—is that the artificial makes possible an understanding of the natural.

Media, art and literature in the late-twentieth and early twenty-first century have been inundated with the memories and portrayals of wars, upheavals, declarations, political persecutions, colonial struggles and religious/ideological wars and terror acts. The spectacles of the industrial and global world as well as digitalised life, ruthless socio-economic dynamics, widening rich/poor gap, generational discrepancies and pandemics have left lasting marks on the human psyche and fostered art and literature to tackle the stigmas and impacts of the long century on contemporary life. Dystopias and anti-utopias of the modern world also made the past a space for (social, political, artistic) exploration, reconsideration, reclamation and reconciliation.

Shortly after the end of WWII, the literary cultures of East-Central Europe were compelled to import the doctrine of socialist realism, which had already been active in the USSR for more than a decade. A malfunctional grafting of a would-be idealizing aesthetics and a formal pattern typical of traditional realism, the socialist realism brought along a new political novel with a limited collection of characters, narrative situations, and denouements, all projected against a overly simplified social background, painted in black and white.

In Mithu Sanyal’s novel Identitti, shortlisted for the German Book Prize 2021, a fictional professor of Postcolonial Studies who identifies as a PoC causes a scandal when it turns out she is actually white – a premise resembling a recent case in American academia. Who is ‘behind’ a theory matters – but how?

Deadline: 1 June 2022

We welcome articles of between 7,000 and 10,000 words for a special issue of Film-Philosophy entitled "Malabou, Plasticity, and Film".

This seminar reevaluates both the Aristotelian notion of peripety and alternative approaches in global literary theory to describe a moment of abrupt change or reversal of action. In doing so, it applies a clearly defined focus on such examples that bring turning points together with an insecure, potentially dangerous medium: water.

Cfp. Between XII.24 (November 2022), "Entering the Simulacra World: Aesthetic and Cultural Phenomenologies in Literature, Media, and the Arts"

updated: 
Friday, October 8, 2021 - 11:10am
Edited by Alessandra Ghezzani, Laura Giovannelli, Cristina Savettieri and Francesco Rossi
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

This issue of Between aims to investigate the phenomenology of simulacra and their range of functions (conceptual, cultural, literary, aesthetic, and in the media). What is meant here by “simulacrum” is any artificial creature that imitates or replicates the outward form and/or behaviour of living beings, especially human beings. When it comes to artefacts produced by technology – conceived in its broader sense as techne, and therefore also including magic and art – the simulacrum reveals itself as marked by operational autonomy and a variable degree of awareness.

What does a novel do? Recent theoretical work on the novel has tended to emphasize the novel’s facility for world-making—for the organization of all its different elements within a global whole (Cheah / Hayot / Woloch). Figured as a composite of relations, the novel is ascribed a constructive conceptuality (Levine / Kornbluh). The novel makes a world. Perhaps some of the strongest, recent theorizations of the novel along these lines, in literary criticism, have come from within new formalism—a formalist movement with roots in both New Criticism and Marxist literary criticism.

THE ZOO OF THE IMAGINARY

According to Michel de Certeau, in a technocratic society as our own, religion is caged in the ‘zoo of the imaginary’, together with other genre-creatures, such as science fiction, romance, or the ‘witchcraft of ethnology’, as he calls it. For the next issue of Passage, we want  to let these spiritual, imaginary animals out of the cage, and into the banal, crumbling, hyperconnected everyday reality we inhabit.
