Text Under Pressure: Society for Textual Scholarship 2024 conference

updated: 
Wednesday, March 6, 2024 - 2:07pm
Society for Textual Scholarship
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 18, 2024

The Society for Textual Scholarship invites proposals for our 2024 conference hosted by the University of Tulsa, June 6-8, on the theme Text Under Pressure. The deadline for proposals is Monday, March 18.

Texts manifest many varieties of creative, social, and political pressure in their expressive content and form. But text is also often a matter of technological pressure: printing techniques rely on the pressure of a platen, roller, or squeegee; other recording and playback processes require the pressure of a stylus, a chisel, a nib, or the gentle pulse of a wifi wave. Such pressurized circumstances, symbolic and material, reveal core issues of textual production, circulation, reception, and contestation.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2024

Modern (Western) civilization has always assumed that there are no problems for which solutions cannot be found. Today there is no shortage of technical solutions on offer for the climate crisis, from carbon capture and storage under the North Sea through to giant high altitude aerosols which deflect the sun’s rays back into outer space. These kind of solutions require what Iain McGilchrist terms a left hemisphere worldview.

Japan has been historically situated as uniquely isolated from the broader world. Yet, the Meiji era (1868-1912) of Japan was defined by intentional efforts on the part of the Japanese government to respond to the pressures of global capitalism such that Japanese cultural identity was preserved not against but through a process of modernization and industrialization. The restoration of imperial power in explicit reference to the monarchies of Europe, including the dramatic successes of Queen Victoria in England and Emperor William I of Germany, was part of this project.

Prof. Dr. Habib Tekin / Marmara University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2024

As a literary genre and a form of cultural aesthetic cyberpunk narratives depict dark visions of the future in which technology, society, and human existence merge. A major element of this setting is Artificial Intelligence (AI), which is often portrayed as a powerful, autonomous entity in cyberpunk universes. In cyberpunk genres, AI typically symbolizes both the zenith of human advancement and a looming existential danger for human beings. The dynamic between humans and AI in these narratives not only raises ethical dilemmas but also highlights the potential conflicts and challenges associated with the development of advanced AI technologies.
