Poetry In the Time of Crisis: La poesía en tiempos de crisis: The Role of the Poet and Poetry in Latin America

updated:

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Most poets have written ars poetica to define their role and explain the meaning of their poetry for themselves and for society.  Some poets see poetry as a purely verbal act, a creative challenge to revitalize language. Others see themselves as a spokesperson for the silent or a prophet seer to bring awareness to the reader. Many poets are skeptical of the value of their poetry for society; they see their writing as a “useless” act meaningful only for themselves. This panel seeks to examine how different Latin American poets view their poetry and whether their perspective changes or is expanded in times of crisis: civil war, dictatorship, epidemics, revolution, ecological crisis, etc.

While it may be too soon to assess the long-lasting impact that the Covid19 pandemic will have on our societies and ways of life in the future, it is timely to consider how the collective experience of emergency and crisis tends to prompt reflections and critique —sometimes renewed, though not always— on the ways in which we live, as well as tending to inspire new conceptualizations and directions in thought, behavior, policy, and the arts.

The Idea
GIRES, the Global Institute for Research, Education & Scholarship is proud to introduce a series of short seminars dedicated to literature. We embrace Scott Fitzgerald’s opinion about the beauty of this fine craft: “You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” We do belong to this world and we hope that we will travel you through the great works that altered our mentality, matured  feelings and made us dreamers. Our very own, Dr. Olga Akroyd will be the guide in this wonderful literary journey.

African and Asian Women’s Voices in Spanish. Borders within the Global HispanophoneUnder the rubric of the “Global Hispanophone,” scholars have recently turned to a transnational and decolonial approach to the cultural production in Spanish that includes former African and Asian possessions of Spain such as Equatorial Guinea, Morocco, Western Sahara and The Philippines. Within these long-neglected cultural productions there is a heterogeneous literary corpus produced by women who subvert oppressive patriarchal traditions, repression and multiple forms of violence.

Food and Culture in Northeast India: The Culinary Tradition

Food, more than a material substance is also a cultural expression handed down from generations to generations. In most societies, the older people pass on their knowledge of food and what constitutes “healthy or good” food to their new members. In this sense, the idea of food also marks a society’s relation with the larger environment- human and biotic. But, food also defines what is “within” from what is “without,” so that culinary skills, inherited through years of practice could be transferred to those who make up the members of a legitimate community.

Homing and Hosting: Transnational Belonging across Italian Cultures

Often conceived as a private, intimate space, the “home” is also host to a variety of social, political, and economic dynamics that bring questions of domesticity to merge and interact with broad, even abstract, concerns. Taking as its point of departure the recent critical analysis of “home” as “a matter of search...an open-ended and possibly unaccomplished process” (Boccagni 2017), this session will address how “homing,” “hosting,” and “Italianità” speak to issues of identities, mobilities, and negotiations. Parsing “home” as a place and “homing” as a practice, this panel will concentrate on three major themes: translations and transitions, communities and environments, and hybrid homes and hybrid hosts.

The arcade.

Maybe it makes you think of neon flashing lights and cacophonies of strange sounds, or maybe your mind immediately jumps to visions of Pac-Man and Space Invaders. Maybe the word conjures nostalgia for childhood friendships and fun, as seen in Stranger Things. Perhaps your imagination wanders to the pachinko parlors of Tokyo. Or maybe you go to the traditional origins of the word, seeing the covered walkways of seventeenth-century French architecture or the contemporary covered markets of Santiago. Maybe the arcade, for you, remains linked to the theories of Walter Benjamin, prompting reflection on consumption and capitalism.

CFP: Chants, Dreams and Other Grammars of Love

Dear friends, artists, comrades and colleagues,

We invite you to contribute to a commemorative anthology celebrating the life and work of Professor Harry Oludare Garuba (1958-2020); poet, literary scholar, teacher, mentor, and beloved friend.

Harry Garuba has been described as “the magnetic force of lasting and legendary friendships” (Raji 2020), an ever-present power “in the conviviality of people that he [...] nurtured, comforted and added in his ever-expanding circle of inclusion” (Fuh 2020), “African intellectual and icon” (Kessi 2020), and “one of the world's finest and most innovative poets” (Omoyele 2020).

Hamlet and the North: Origins, Exchanges and Appropriations The story of Shakespeare’s Nordic play is also, inevitably, one of cultural exchanges before, during and after the early modern period. From its origins in Nordic tradition to its re-introduction in the Nordic countries through Shakespeare’s play, the story of Hamlet from the middle ages to present time is inextricably bound up with Nordic history and culture. This conference, co-hosted by the Nordic Shakespeare Society and the Early Modern Seminar at the University of Gothenburg, is the first to explore the specific Nordic dimensions of Hamlet.
