Disruption, Resistance & Resilience, UBC Graduate Conference 2019

updated: 
Thursday, January 17, 2019 - 9:24am
Shalini Nanayakkara / Endnotes Conference at the University of British Columbia
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 1, 2019

The University of British Columbia’s annual English Graduate Conference cordially invites submissions under the themes of Disruption, Resistance, and Resilience.

In the wake of years of political, social, and ecological crises that have disrupted, disoriented, and displaced populations across the globe, modes of resistance and resilience have emerged to confront the disarray. From the rise of Trump and “fake news” to the latest IPCC report on the impending irrevocability of climate change, humanities studies and art practices have stepped up to the challenge to revolutionize their age-old roles of disruption and resilience-making on a much larger global stage.

2019 American Studies Association Panel: "Risky Places: Geographies of Race and Risk"

deadline for submissions:

We seek interdisciplinary papers for a proposed panel at the 2019 American Studies Association conference (Honolulu, Hawai'i, November 7-10 2019) investigating the overlapping geographies of race and risk. While scholars have primarily emphasized risk as a modality of liberal governance and a technology of rule, our approach considers the Janus-faced character of risk as possible emancipatory performance—a rejection of propriety—and risk as a key technique through which regimes of surveillance (Browne 2015), calculation (McKittrick 2014; Snorton 2017), and security (Masco 2014) operate.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

Contributions are requested for the special issue 45.1 of Revista de Estudios de Genero y sexualidad (before Letras femeninas) for 2019. This issue will delve into the representation of female disability, based on the artistic and cultural production carried out by women from a transhistorical perspective that encompasses both sides of the Atlantic. Priority will be given to research proposals that study how, in the different periods and cultures of Luso-Hispanics, creative women with and without disabilities have approached the topic of disability, as well as how it has been stigmatized and abused by the patriarchal society.

Militourism: Travel Literature and Empire

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 11:19am
Modern Languages Association - GS Travel Writing
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 15, 2019

Inspired by Teresia Teaiwa’s definition of “militourism” as a “phenomenon by which a military or paramilitary force ensures the running of a tourist industry, and that same tourist industry masks the military force behind it,” this panel seeks to consider practices of “militourism” in a long historical context by soliciting papers with critical approaches to militarization, travel, and tourism from antiquity to the present day. We invite papers that engage questions of conquest, colonization, and empire; battlefield/memorial tourism; memoirs by soldiers, soldiers’ wives, and support staff; the intersections of military and tourist industries.

Alterglobal Politics: Postcolonial Theory in the Era of the Anthropocene and the Nonhuman

Although they are often spoken of in the same breath, theories of the Anthropocene and the nonhuman turn vary in their emphases. The Anthropocene introduces a new ‘universal’ subject – the human species as a global geophysical agent. Theories of the nonhuman, however, seek to displace anthropocentric foci – the ‘human’ is viewed as a part of a complex assemblage co-constituted by many others. Postcolonial theory has, in general, been sceptical of both trajectories. On the one hand, postcolonial theory and theorists remain generally suspicious of the putative universal subject (the ‘human species’) that purportedly impacts this era of anthropogenic climate-change catastrophically.
