Continually being transformed, the humanities have expanded into a discursive field of trends, movements, and methodologies that have appropriated the thoughts, ideas, and viewpoints from social and other sciences by transgressing and crossing traditional boundaries, limitations, and demarcations. The humanities which traditionally include the study of disciplines such as language, literature, arts, history, culture, and philosophy rarely prove to be “disciplined” as each one often tends to encroach upon prescribed and reserved territories of other disciplines not traditionally humanities labeled.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

The goal of this seminar is to provide a forum in which to discuss how TV shows (reality shows, true crime, documentary broadcasts, docufictions, and web series) bridge the gap between factual knowledge and myths, and how they facilitate the transfer of ordinary knowledge into the implausible, especially in Iberia and Latin America. Entertainment business and journalism intertwine to engage an audience-oriented to the consumption of serialized narratives.

Aestheticism Now! (ACLA Chicago Seminar)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 9:38am
Aleksandar Stevic
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

To whom does aestheticism belong? Traditionally critiqued as an outgrowth of western bourgeois culture, aestheticism, with its assorted attributes (including aesthetic detachment, disinterestedness, and autonomy) seems ill equipped to respond to our contemporary concerns with marginalization, power imbalances, and the reproduction of hegemonic structures. And yet, the commitment to aesthetic detachment continues to pop up in seemingly unlikely places—in various corners of postcolonial literary production and in the writings of political exiles and Holocaust survivors. We therefore ask to whom aestheticism belongs today, who makes use of it, to what ends, and under what circumstances?

ACLA 2023 panel on "Humor and Amusement in Translation: Not Losing it"

updated: 
Tuesday, October 4, 2022 - 9:30am
American Comparative Literature Association 2023
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

In a world gradually opening itself to diversity, cultural perceptions are greatly influenced by translation of emotions, and their expressions in public discourse and art. But what happens when humor is translated? Humor in literary discourse harnesses amusement arising from perception of differences and/or contrasts, and as such, it is especially challenging to ensure that it retains its amusing quality despite the change in linguistic and cultural registers of perception.

Teaching the Global Eighteenth Century [Roundtable at the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Meeting, March 9-11, 2023, St. Louis, MO]

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 24, 2022

We seek presentations on any aspect of teaching the eighteenth-century within a global context. Presentations might focus on strategies for teaching transcultural and transnational encounters; travel, trade, or colonialism; eighteenth-century world literatures; or any text or set of texts—written, oral, visual, aural, or material—that “globalizes” students’ engagement with the eighteenth century. We welcome presentations on the teaching of subject matter that exposes, interrogates, unsettles, decenters, or displaces a Eurocentric world view.

October 24, 2022, is the extended deadline.

This ASLE + AESS 2023 CONFERENCE PANEL highlights the role of Asian animist traditions and spiritual practices in the counter-worlding of the Anthropocene. Taking contemporary visual and performing arts as a vantage point of observation, it explores what common grounds are being formed among today’s arts, community resilience, environmental stewardship, and ontological inquiries when artists work with local communities in practicing and politicizing ritual dancing, chanting, rhyming, object-making, trance, healing, and worshiping, among other spiritual traditions.

Diaspora ”has broadly come to mean all people who have a particular country of origin but live outside it either due to the 'pull' or 'push' factor. According to James Clifford, the diaspora is a “signifier”, “not simply of transnationality and movement” (1994, 308). At present, “diaspora” goes beyond the context of geographical migrant and marks a departure from the heterosexual identity of a subject. Homi Bhabha refers to the diasporic existence of the third space, a hybrid location (1994) that was contested by Shackleton (2008) whereas Anita Mannur and Pia Sahni talk about creating a ‘critical space’ for critiquing ‘cultural appropriation” (2011).

ACLA 2023: Sensing Migrant Romanticism

updated: 
Tuesday, September 27, 2022 - 9:39pm
American Comparative Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 30, 2022

In his influential study of Romanticism, M. H. Abrams famously claimed that radical aesthetic novelties “frequently turn out to be migrant ideas which, in their native intellectual habitat, were commonplaces.” This panel seeks to embrace such migrancy to go beyond the confines of European culture and periodization and even question the assumptions about originality, propriety, legitimacy, and imitation embedded in Abrams and later interpreters of Romanticism.  

Disability in the Global Middle Ages

updated: 
Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 12:32pm
Society for the Study of Disability in the Middle Ages
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2022

Since its emergence, medieval disability studies has asked questions about the meanings of disability in the Middle Ages, the lived experiences of people with disabilities, and how scholars can apply the frameworks of disability studies to medieval texts. Although these questions have led to insightful and field-changing scholarship, much of this work centers the Western tradition. In order to explore a broader and more accurate view of disability in the global Middle Ages, we ask these same questions but with a focus on non-Western texts. This panel seeks presentations on any aspect of disability in the global Middle Ages, and we welcome submissions from across disciplines, including literature, art, history, religion, and philosophy.

Present Futures

 

The present is great with the future.

—Gottfried Leibniz, 1703

 

In times when the present seems to be facing an imminent – and immanent – crisis, we want to take a step forward and investigate how various concepts and imaginaries of the future can be made fruitful for the present. The 15th issue of On_Culture seeks to explore forms of present futures – futures that manifest in the present and a/effect it – to provide new approaches and critical perspectives to thinking about the future in the study of culture.

Writing Catastrophe/Centering Realism: Textualizing Capitalism’s Disasters

updated: 
Tuesday, September 20, 2022 - 9:23pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

In the current moment, there is no paucity of catastrophe writing. From apocalyptic speculative fiction, cli-fi, and other textual forms of disaster writing, catastrophe is too often conceived of as environmental events or disasters that already have occurred (tsunami; forest fires; hurricanes and floods) or will reliably occur in the future. Part of the problem with this textualization is that catastrophe often is seen as an event rather than a process. More pointedly, our critical attention has been (understandably) trained on the effects and harms of climate change rather than on capitalism’s disastrous drive for surplus extraction that renders life unlivable for millions in the here and now.
