Twenty Years after 'The Savage Detectives': On the Legacy of Roberto Bolaño (NeMLA 2018)

updated:

Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Commemorating the 20th anniversary of the publication of Roberto Bolaño's novel, The Savage Detectives, we want to address the legacy of this Latin American author. We intend to discuss Bolaño's status in world literature today, as a "local" voice that was never very local, to begin with (he was a Chilean who produced most of his work in Mexico and Spain, and who included cosmopolitan references in all of his stories), but has certainly become "global" in the 21st century. Papers in English and Spanish will be considered.

One-Day Symposium. The Open University, Camden, London. Friday 20th October 2017

In the last decade an emerging generation of writers from Malaysia and Singapore has achieved international recognition, pioneering new global English fiction and embarking on more confident imaginative journeys across South East Asia. This one-day symposium, a collaboration between the Open University and the University of Exeter, seeks to remap global English fiction (dominated by neighbouring South Asia) and draw fresh attention to the dynamic colonial literary cultures and postcolonial, globalising futures of Malaysian and Singaporean Anglophone writing.

AAS Panel: "Literary Approaches to Early Chinese Philosophy"

Wednesday, June 14, 2017 - 10:54am
Association for Asian Studies

Saturday, July 15, 2017

Traditionally, the study of early Chinese philosophy has been bifurcated along a specific methodological axis.  Classical sinology has often focused on issues of textual criticism and reconstruction of certain lines of intellectual filiation between texts and schools, while comparative philosophy has tried instead to extract from these texts certain kinds of issues and truth claims which could intervene in debates often still founded on European texts.  Both of these perspectives are important, and they have never been hermetically sealed, as many scholars have been comfortable working in both modes.  However, this structural orientation of the discipline has encouraged a certain kind of binary vision when approaching early Chinese texts: the proper frami

CARIBBEAN WRITERS AND THE ART OF LIVING IN THE BORDERLANDS

updated: 
Sunday, June 11, 2017 - 5:29pm
SAMLA 89
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 18, 2017

In keeping with the SAMLA 89 conference theme of “High/Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture,” we invite participants to explore the convergence of time and place in the works of Caribbean writers living in and in between socially constructed spaces.  These might be identified as spaces where traditional and global cultures interface; where authors construct a world without borders in it; and where identities crossover and are transformed in the process. Narrativity and narratology are important aspects of such Caribbean writing, so we welcome papers with an interest in the narrative and/or poetic structure of the work under examination.

Lives in Transit: Subjectivity in the Age of Migration (NeMLA 2018)

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 - 8:12am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

More than thirty years ago, Edward Said wrote in Reflections on Exile that “our age...is indeed the age of the refugee, the displaced person, mass immigration.” As migration becomes increasingly recognized as integral to contemporary societies, how does transit become central to how we understand urban spaces, communities, and the experiences of individuals within them? We understand transit as the movement of people, ideas, memories, or emotions, and what Jodi Byrd has described as “liminal existence” in “ungrievable spaces.” In what ways does the concept of "transit" model a rethinking of the relationship between individuals and postcolonial geographies? How does mobility constitute movement through both physical and ontological space?

This seminar seeks to explore the dialectical relationship between recent geopolitical crises and people’s responses to them. Once previous hermeneutical and epistemological frameworks and tools no longer work, global citizens need to devise original technologies to respond to and understand what are perceived as radically new experiences.

Earlier this year a river revered by the local Mauri people in New Zealand has been granted legal rights as a living entity. This first incident was then succeeded by a court’s decision in India to grant the rivers Ganges and Yamuna the status of living beings. Not all parts of the earth benefit from such legal protection as evidenced by the Gezi Park protests in Istanbul in 2013 and by the Dakota Pipeline protests more recently.

The emergence of ‘world literature’ as a critical framework of reading in literary studies has not only recalibrated older methodologies of comparative and postcolonial literature but has also foregrounded the aspect of circulation and reception of literary works in a transnational context. The emphasis that this method of reading puts on the cross-cultural travels of a literary text is reinforced by the global technology of social media and web 2.0 which promises instant connectedness and conjures a virtual world which is self-contained, even though it reflects and engages with the actual world of the socio-political, outside itself.

CORRECTION!!EXTENDED DEADLINE (June 5th) for SAMLA panel—The Avant-Garde and Modern Visual Culture: At the Crossroads of High and Low Art

updated: 
Friday, June 2, 2017 - 11:24am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 5, 2017

This panel examines the imbrication of the avant-garde with mass-produced art in order to discern the relationships between the proliferation of images and capitalism in the advent of modern visual culture. Imitating the shock value of advertising, the avant-gardists appeal to the eye of the viewer to gain visibility in the domains of art and draw the consumer’s attention to its product, thereby revealing the profit-oriented motives of marketplace exchanges. Immaterialities such as images are thus transformed into commodities that blend high and low aesthetic genres that participate in the consumer society.
