Migration: Shifting to and fro and In-between

University of North Alabama English Graduate Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 3, 2020

The English Department at UNA welcomes you to participate in this year’s Graduate Conference: Migration: Shifting to and fro and In-between

While influxes of immigrants/migrants/refugees arriving to the U.S. dominate conceptualizations of identity and belonging, it is vital to analyze our deeper understandings of migration. Migration—the act of moving from one place to another—exists in a number of ways, not just geographically. So, how do our limited ways of thinking of migration affect its potential in certain fields/entities/theories?

Beyond Tragedies of War: Voices and Bodies of Women from The Global South

The Nobel Peace Prize winner, Nadia Murad, a former captive of ISIS is an essential reminder of the sacrifices women make during a war which often go unnoticed or unacknowledged as heroic. In countless areas of the Global South, the female body has endured physical and psychological violation. Rape is an effective strategy of war and ethnic cleansing, and the violated community finds it difficult to speak about their fate during the time of war and of peace as well. In most cases, the raped body goes silent, feeling ashamed and fearing retributions from all spheres of life.

CHANGING THE (CULTURAL) CLIMATE WITH ECOCRITICISM AND ECOLINGUISTICS

updated: 
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 10:29am
Department of Humanistic Studies, University of Ferrara
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 25, 2020

The discourse of the environment permeates attitudes towards the present, representations of the past and perceptions of the future.

How do languages, literatures and other modes of meaning-making promote ecocritical frameworks that interrogateWestern and Eastern anthropocentric assumptions, biases and expectations?

How do the environmental humanities test new hermeneutic tools to assess the interdependence between natural and anthropic ecosystems? 

Our focus is onnew narratives of fragile and resilient environments; the im/material wellbeing of the organisms that live in them; the interconnections between diverse forms of life.

For this issue of Oxford Research in English, we invite articles that delve into arrival and setting forth in literature, as well as the textual, intertextual and extratextual ways one can examine literary places and spaces. “Destination” derives from the Latin dēstināre—to resolve, to determine, to destine— before journeying into French and arriving in English.

In Comparative Literature, the increasingly contested field of “World Literature”, and Translation Studies, the notion of the “untranslatability” of literature has gained purchase in recent years, due in part to the work of Emily Apter and the continual rediscoveries of the work of Walter Benjamin. Literary translation is conceived of, in one view, as impossible, and in another view as an activity (even an art form) with infinite possibilities for the translator but minimal responsibilities toward that which is being translated.

AAIS-AATI 2020 "1950-2020: Cesare Pavese 70 Years After His Death. New Perspectives of Studies"

updated:

Iuri Moscardi (PhD student, CUNY)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Cesare Pavese left an unforgettable mark on Twentieth century Italian culture. His multifaceted intellectual personality took many shapes. He was a poet, a translator, a member of the Einaudi publishing house, a novelist: in short, he was a complete intellectual. His literary production was characterized by an extraordinary open-mindedness: he was the first to translate into Italian the American authors who influenced him; with "Dialoghi con Leucò" he reinterpreted classical mythology; he was interested in cinema. Seventy years after his death, what methodologies can we employ to study his work? How  can we interpret his open-mindedness, based on the cultural context of the first half of the Twentieth century and looking at the present time?

Short-circuits and Fused Visions: The Works and Networks of Claude Pélieu/ “Courts-circuits et visions disjonctées : œuvre et réseaux de Claude Pélieu

Born in 1934 in the village of Beauchamp, near Pontoise (France), Claude Pélieu was an influential figure in a number of contemporary transatlantic artistic and literary scenes from the 1960s until his death in 2002, yet he remains relatively unknown and absent from historical narratives of the period. In the 1950s, he began drawing and experimenting with collage, and later studied painting in Fernand Leger’s atelier. He published his first poems in 1956 in the magazine Rendez-vous avec le sol, followed by further texts in 1959 in Henri Chopin’s Cinquième saison.
