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

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 ?

Literary multilingualism studies is a relatively new but burgeoning area of research.

International Conference: "The Aesthetics of Decay: Creative Modes of Destruction"

Friday, September 10, 2021 - 12:21pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 1, 2021

Decay as a state of nature is inevitable, yet it is something that could be at least postponed: decay in art as the main decadent idea has been on the cultural front row long enough to make certain conclusions about its essential characteristics. Decay as a philosophical issue is much more complex than its natural incarnation: French Symbolists and, later, fin de siecle authors regarded decay as an inseparable part of any type of cultural cognition. Its original interpretations can be found in the ideas of Schopenhauer, Hartmann, Nietzsche, Wagner, Bergson's intuitivism, modern scientific discoveries and folklore. The art of decay feels the need to justify its aesthetic principles, to explain to the public audience its goals and tasks.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel holds space for depictions of embodied practices/practices of agency in bodies of women of color, queer, nonbinary, trans, and other subjectivities in postcolonial literature and literatures of the Global South. What is the relation between the body and exercising agency? How might we think of these practices as embodied and embodying: as practices done in/through/by the body, as well as practices that reify the body? What are the limitations of these projects, and to what degree are they successful? How might these practices be adopted by readers outside of the text?

There are multiple reasons behind the recent eruption of female directors within the documentary field, such as the fact that it is a field in which major resources or connections aren’t needed in order to succeed. However, the thriving of women documentary filmmakers may also respond to reasons of a more formal nature. As feminist film theorists have argued, driven by its lack of faith in the visual archive, the female gaze tends to push traditional image and narrative boundaries in order to open up the door to memories, experiences, and forms of cultural knowledge encoded in senses other than (and questioning of) the visual and/or auditory.

The climate crisis, the economic crisis, the refugee crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic has called to the forefront the experience of contemporary beings which forces us to re-evaluate the place of the human in the current world, calling into question the crisis of the universal mode of man and human exceptionalism. Such a displacement in how we think about the human experience also forces us to re-think the city as a whole and what it wants to forget, in particular urban ruins. Is it still beneficial to think of urban ruins as dead, as just relics of a bygone age of national development, or just as modern flops that merge with the surrounding urban fabric? Or are they alive?

-Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group
