The congress aims to bring together leading academic researchers and scholars to exchange and share their experiences on all aspects of Philology. Philology is more topical than ever in our age.

Thursday, December 15, 2022

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992 — the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States — calls for presentations situated in colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

In the 32 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.

Panel proposed at the 2023 ASLE + AESS Conference: “Reclaiming the Commons”

July 9-12, 2023 in Portland, Oregon

What are the possibilities—and limitations—of investigating commonalities between the plant and the human for discovering new forms of trans, nonbinary, and genderfluid sexualities? How might the study of vegetal forms of agency trouble the very notion of sexual subjectivity as something that originates inside an individual, rather than its environment? Given the role of botany as both a sexual and colonial science, how do postcolonial authors create new rhetorical relations to plant life to express not only queer sexual identities, but the specificities of postcolonial identity more broadly?

Intra-African Migration and Kinship Structures: Reframing Afropolitanism  

 

Afropolitanism has generated a great deal of debate and discussion, and many panels on Afropolitanism have been organized at African Literature Association conferences since the first such a panel in 2015.  These discussions often point out how Afropolitan concepts can question national and geographical affiliations and dislodge fixed ideas of belonging in the contemporary world. Too often the scholarship focuses on Africans’ connections to the West, a focus that has provoked significant controversies and disagreements.

The productivity of ‘negative emotions’ in postcolonial literatures

updated: 
Tuesday, November 8, 2022 - 9:35am
Isabelle Wentworth / University of New South Wales
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

Emotions, affect, and moods do not happen to us. Rather, we are our emotions: they configure our manner of relating to, and existing within the world. Ontologies of emotion—in their embodied and symbolic dimensions—alter our perceptions, experiences, and predictions of ourselves and our environment in ways which problematize inside/outside and mind/body dualities. This is also true of the so-called ‘negative emotions’. Studies of negative affect abound in the humanities, from Aristotle’s fear and pity, Heidegger’s angst, and Robert Burton’s melancholy, to Sartre’s nausea, Germaine Greer’s rage, Kristeva’s disgust, and, more recently, Sianne Ngai’s “ugly feelings.”

Betwixt and between: Questions of the liminal

updated: 
Thursday, November 3, 2022 - 11:40am
Johns Hopkins University Spanish Graduate Students
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 15, 2022

How does the liminal manifest in the Spanish-speaking world? To what does it respond in various contexts, spaces, and artistic expressions? From colonial wounds, through border disputes, gender expression, and artistic hybridization, the history of the Spanish-language sphere is one of diverse networks of communication. The idea of the liminal allows for the revision, evaluation, and deconstruction of these bordered spaces, to elaborate a site of dialogue and encounter. This conference proposes to be such a site.

 

Suggested themes include, but are not limited to:

FRAME 36.1 “Dying Wor(l)ds”

FRAME, Journal of Literary Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 7, 2022

In “Land Sickness”, Nikolaj Schultz describes how he goes on vacation to “detach from the material consequences of [his] existence,” but upon arrival on a French island, he is once more faced with the material reality of existence, as the island’s coastline is eroding, caused by rising sea levels and the pressure of foreign tourism. He writes: “Neither Pareto, Marx or Bourdieu died in vain, but none of them offer a language sufficient to articulate the geo-social struggle for territory that unfolds on the island. I myself lack a language to understand what is happening.” How indeed, does one think and write about the world that is disappearing under our feet?
