The environment is still being shaped by anthropocentric acts, facing continuous destruction, and reverberating catastrophic effects on numerous species, including humans both as individuals and as communities. This panel wants to contribute to the ongoing debate about the necessity to improve the human relationship with the environment, with nature, and the need for a significant, long overdue change of the current course of action. The ongoing unscrupulous devastation can lead to extreme outcomes such as extinction, announcing the termination of numerous representations of life in various forms. Yet, a strong resistance to this threat can be encountered in various contexts and is defined in disparate ways through diversified means of communication.

Global Conference on Women and Gender

To be held in person March 16-18, 2023

This interdisciplinary conference on Women and Gender brings together participants from all academic fields to engage in wide-ranging conversations about education as a catalyst for freedom and transformation. Contributors are encouraged to consider education in the diversity of its forms, and how “traditional” and/or “alternative” models, both inside and outside of the classroom, intersect with the politics of gender. What are the social, economic, and intellectual consequences of denying women and marginalized communities access to education? Alternatively, how may education serve as an act of resistance to systems of oppression throughout the world?

ACLA 2023 Seminar: "Symbolic Animals: On Representation"

Monday, October 31, 2022

In a germinal essay of literary study, W.J.T. Mitchell observes that the human, “for many philosophers both ancient and modern, is the “representational animal,” homo symbolicum, the creature whose distinctive character is the creation and manipulation of signs—things that “stand for” or “take the place of” something else.” And in the twenty-first century, representation—in its aesthetic, cultural, semiotic, political, and myriad other contemporary dimensions—is strategically deployed for its presumptive ability to carry the burden of material disparities produced along intersecting lines of difference.

South Asian Literatures: Women Writing Men, Men Writing Women (NeMLA Convention 2023)

Friday, September 30, 2022

South Asian literary works have given us a memorable array of complex portraits of women and men and the relations between them. Some characters favor traditional modes of understanding the roles and behaviors of the sexes and their interrelations, others seem oriented to a progressive outlook on gender and the relations relations between women, men and non-binary individuals, while still others apparently embody a mixture of these attitudes. May we discern patterns or differences in matters of gender and gender relations when taking into account whether the authors in question identify as female, male, or non-binary?

Loving Dystopia
A Global Interdisciplinary Conference

Friday 17th March 2023 - Saturday 18th March 2023
Prague, Czech Republic

Literally the opposite of utopia, or ‘perfect place,’ the term dystopia was coined in the mid-19th century and has been used to both critique laws, policies and actions by those in power, and to describe states of being.

A dystopian society is generally seen as an imagined state of existence or an imagined society, characterized by gross imbalances of power, injustice, cruelty, suffering and hopelessness, with either totalitarian or nonexistent — or at least invisible — and always unethical forms of government.
