"I, too, having lost faith / in language, have placed my faith in language" (Terrance Hayes, "Snow for Wallace Stevens")

As Terrance Hayes exemplifies in his portrayal of Wallace Stevens’ racism, language underpins both care-full and care-less representations. As an interdependent system that necessarily implicates and involves us all, language demands our thoughtful investigation when it comes to how we might communicate care.

This panel explores concepts and stereotypes lying behind the vision of love and eroticism expressed by Latin American authors. This panel creates a dialogue about writers’ depictions of love, affections, and womanhood and how those ideas reflect, renew, or challenge Latin American societies. Comparative or feminist approaches in Spanish/English/Portuguese are suitable; other approaches also considered.

From Kabuliwala to the Fall of Kabul: Afghanistan in Popular Imagination

updated: 
Friday, September 24, 2021 - 10:50am
University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021

With the recent fall of Kabul, Afghanistan has resurfaced in political and critical discourses. The “Graveyard of Empires” as it is known, the popular imagination of the country has been a source to draw courage from for subalterns the world over. Its crucial geopolitical location has often made it a site for global scuffles of major powers as we witnessed in Rudyard Kipling's Kim and its backdrop of the Great Game. We have also often seen how Hollywood’s Orientalist lenses transformed the country into a site for fulfilment of neocolonial American desires—Rambo vanquishing the Soviets almost single-handedly in the background of the Cold War.

NeMLA 2022 | To Write Like a Woman: Gender and Science Fiction

updated: 
Wednesday, September 22, 2021 - 1:29pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

If one were to judge the genre of science fiction by the blockbuster films it has produced, one would think it is a hypermasculine, imperialist, anti-feminist genre. However, non-white, non-male people have shaped, defined, and sustained the genre throughout its existence as authors, editors, and fans. The modern founder of the genre was arguably Mary Shelley who initially published anonymously. However, authors like Ursula Le Guin and Octavia Butler are now synonymous with literary sci-fi. Furthermore, some of the most compelling and successful contemporary writers of science fiction are women of color.

Floating Islands; or, Saikaku's Eighteenth Century

updated: 
Tuesday, September 21, 2021 - 4:48pm
American Society of 18th Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 8, 2021

Following the various calls for a more global perspective on the eighteenth century at ASECS 2021, this panel seeks papers on the work of Japanese author Ihara Saikaku (1642-1693). In her 2016 book, The Age of Silver, Ning Ma discusses Saikaku as the most significant representative figure of the “stories of the floating world” that, she argues, should be seen as an emergence of realist fiction. A bestseller in 17th and 18th century Japan, Saikaku’s work fell into obscurity until a revival of interest in the late 19th century, when he became known as “Japan’s realist”.

Unjust Philologies in the "Modern University"

Sunday, October 31, 2021

In this seminar, we wish to examine how people of different positionalities vis a vis the ‘center’ and ‘peripheries’ of modern research universities, practice comparative literary studies within institutions which, from the start, were built upon the logic of exclusion and exclusionary tactics.  The “modern university” stands in a long tradition of colonial and racialized traditions of knowledge-making which purported to be secular and universalizable.

In recent decades, the practice of collaborative intellectual labor has had an unexpected resurgence, both among writers and artists, and within scholarly and academic spaces. Drawing on a rich history of intellectual, activist, and artistic practices of collaboration, new collectives and research groups have embraced collaborative forms of knowledge production to challenge the individualization of intellectual labor and the demands of the neoliberal episteme.

Planetary Drifts—Methodology, Technology, and the Creative Imagination in the Age of Planetary Transformation

 

Representing “Arabia” in the Long Eighteenth Century (ASECS Annual Conference, Baltimore, 2022)

updated: 
Thursday, September 16, 2021 - 10:47am
Ileana Baird, Zayed University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 17, 2021

This panel invites papers on eighteenth-century texts or visual art that engage with, provide accounts of, or create Orientalist fictions about “Arabia.” The growing interest in the Orient and orientalia fueled by eighteenth-century travelers to the Near East and by translations like Galland’s A Thousand and One Nights (1704-1717), rendered in English as the Arabian Nights Entertainments (1706-1721), produced a large corpus of works that often used “Arabia” as an umbrella term that described not one location, but many. How did these texts represent “Arabia” and the “Arabs” and what sets of images or cultural stereotypes about the place and its people emerged at the time?

“ Femmes solidaires d’Afriques transatlantiques: Sororité, amitié ou conflits?"

updated:

Stephanie Diane Tsakeu Mazan/NeMLA

Thursday, September 30, 2021

Le présent panel se veut le lieu d’exploration et de questionnement des difficultés auxquelles sont confrontées les femmes qui sont loin d’être préoccupées par la construction d’une communauté centrée autour d’une conception sororale unique. Leur engagement dans le cadre des luttes politiques tout comme leur rôle en tant que « gardiennes du temple » des traditions séculaires patriarcales ne sont plus à démontrer. Cependant, existe-t-il des associations des femmes africaines à caractère essentiellement féministe ?
