Video games and environmental imaginaries of the Anthropocene

From cold, creeping survival in the Canadian tundra to neon-cathode dreams of a geoengineered utopia, from the weed-choked ruins of far distant future cities to the shattered landscapes caught under the shadow of nuclear annihilation, numerous video game titles across multiple platforms have in recent years contended with the political ecologies, environmental implications, and apocalyptic manifestations of the Anthropocene.

Aestheticism Now! (ACLA Chicago Seminar)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 9:38am
Aleksandar Stevic
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

To whom does aestheticism belong? Traditionally critiqued as an outgrowth of western bourgeois culture, aestheticism, with its assorted attributes (including aesthetic detachment, disinterestedness, and autonomy) seems ill equipped to respond to our contemporary concerns with marginalization, power imbalances, and the reproduction of hegemonic structures. And yet, the commitment to aesthetic detachment continues to pop up in seemingly unlikely places—in various corners of postcolonial literary production and in the writings of political exiles and Holocaust survivors. We therefore ask to whom aestheticism belongs today, who makes use of it, to what ends, and under what circumstances?

Posthumous Publication

updated: 
Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 9:36am
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

Though “posthumousness” takes a variety of forms, the texts within its ambit share a quality that Jean-Christophe Cloutier, in Shadow Archives, calls “a belated form of timeliness.” The editorial apparatus of posthumously published texts, such as Claude McKay’s Amiable with Big Teeth or Muriel Rukeyser’s Savage Coast, foregrounds these novels’ prior lostness and subsequent belated arrival in forms and contexts that their authors could not have foreseen.

Call for book chapters | Conceptual Writing and Humor (Extended deadline)

updated: 
Monday, October 3, 2022 - 5:41am

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 30, 2022

Laughter is a physical manifestation or, as Jean-Luc Nancy wrote, it is “a body shaken by a thought that is not possible”. In a performance of conceptual poetry you hear as much laughter as in a stand-up comedy performance. However, in the academic world, conceptual writing has been treated mainly as a rational endeavor or a cerebral and intellectual exercise. Enthusiasts and critics alike have often read conceptualist works very seriously.

Art and Abortion panel

Friday, November 4, 2022

On May 2, 2022, a draft decision leaked from the US Supreme Court confirmed what many had feared: that the highest US court was set to overturn the 1973 decision Roe vs. Wade and roll back protections governing women’s rights. Almost immediately after, appointment books and clinics began to close in multiple US states. This situation was far from isolated; in the U.K., pandemic gains for women in access to early at-home abortion will roll back on August 29th, 2022. As these and other examples from around the world demonstrate, the present moment appears to be one of regression and regulation.

Crisis in Contemporary British Fiction (edited volume)

updated: 
Friday, September 30, 2022 - 4:05am
Anastasia Logotheti
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 30, 2022

This collection of critical essays explores how contemporary British authors engage with the theme of crisis in their fiction (as apparent in novels and short stories by Julian Barnes, A S Byatt, Graham Swift, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, Pat Barker, Martin Amis, among others.)

‘Crisis’ can be investigated not only as informing any aspect of fiction involving sociopolitical and cultural systems, but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representation across narrative traditions.

Submissions should focus on one or more of the aforementioned major contemporary British authors (though you are welcome to propose additional British authors who explore the theme of crisis).

Northeast Modern Language Association 2023 Panel: "Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man in the 21st Century"

Praised by generations of writers and thinkers, Ralph Ellison’s canonical novel Invisible Man remains deeply relevant. As we approach the thirtieth anniversary of Ellison’s passing, this panel will assess how Ellison’s landmark novel continues to be discussed, represented, and taught in the 21st Century.

How has Invisible Man taken on new meanings in the age of post-Obama, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, COVID-19, and ongoing climate change?

What influence has Ellison’s work had on later generations of writers?

How do we situate Ellison’s opus in his corpus and/or the canon of American letters?

updated:

Sunday, October 30, 2022

Catherine Malabou places her signature concept of “plasticity” within the material encounters between the Kantian, Hegelian, and Derridean threads of the continental philosophical tradition and emerging developments in neuroscience, epigenesis, and political organization. Her recent work has demonstrated the relevance of these encounters to fields as diverse as trauma studies, gender and queer studies, hermeneutics, anarchism, postcolonialism, artificial intelligence, evolution, anthropogenic climate change, sexuality, and affect studies, to name just a few.

Exploring the Outer and Meta Spaces of Resilience

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 23, 2023

This panel focuses on the political, cultural, and societal narratives of outer space. We suggest that the narratives and discourses that surround space exploration, threats from space, or even future colonization of space can provide insights into the logics and counter-logics of resilience as they inform how we ought to and who ought to live with environmental destruction, information capitalism, neoliberalism, and the remaining infrastructures of colonialism.

Horror Homeroom's Special Issue #7: Found Footage Horror

In today’s media landscape, questions of authenticity, truth, and manipulation of fact are more pertinent than ever. While journalists herald the dawning of a ‘post-truth’ era, and deepfakes bring to a boiling point the anxiety of online communication and documentation, the subgenre of found footage horror seems to encapsulate a terror that is both commonplace and elusive.

Writing Catastrophe/Centering Realism: Textualizing Capitalism’s Disasters

updated: 
Tuesday, September 20, 2022 - 9:23pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

In the current moment, there is no paucity of catastrophe writing. From apocalyptic speculative fiction, cli-fi, and other textual forms of disaster writing, catastrophe is too often conceived of as environmental events or disasters that already have occurred (tsunami; forest fires; hurricanes and floods) or will reliably occur in the future. Part of the problem with this textualization is that catastrophe often is seen as an event rather than a process. More pointedly, our critical attention has been (understandably) trained on the effects and harms of climate change rather than on capitalism’s disastrous drive for surplus extraction that renders life unlivable for millions in the here and now.
