Modernism, Mediation, and the Image Space (MSA12, Nov 11-14, 2010)

Monday, June 28, 2010 - 12:43pm
Modernist Studies Association

This panel, already accepted for MSA12, will explore the intersection of non-canonical modernist spaces with the images and image-producing mechanisms which create and define them. Papers will pursue the shifting modernist response to the visuality of such image-spaces, engaging with the perception/consumption of these image environments, the relative materiality or insubstantiality of such images and spaces, the reciprocal relationship between image and space in the manufacture of such environments, and the technologies or media implicated in such spatio-image constructions.

Please send a 300-word abstract and a 2-3 sentence biographical statement by July 3.

[UPDATE] CFP 1971 Pakistani War: Special Issue of Pakistaniaat

Monday, June 28, 2010 - 10:50am
Pakistaniaat: Journal of Pakistan Studies

"The 1971 Indo-Pakistan War: Causes, Costs, and Consequences"
call for submissions for a special issue of
Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies Vol. 2 (3) 2010
Publication Date: December 2010
Submission deadline: September 15, 2010

The events that occurred in Pakistan in 1971 go by many names: the Indo-Pakistan War, the Liberation War of Bangladesh, and the Pakistani Civil War, to list a few. Along with this proliferation of signifiers, Bangladeshi perspectives on the conflict that resulted in that country's independence are a commonplace in scholarly arenas. Pakistani views on that year, however, have received curiously little critical and scholarly attention.

NTUT Silent & Ineffable Conference: Functions of the Unsaid in Literature and the Humanities (Nov. 26-27, 2010)

Monday, June 28, 2010 - 3:23am
Department of English, National Taipei University of Technology, Republic of China

"Love, and be silent," Cordelia says in Act One. To some, Cordelia's verbal intransigence toward Lear marks her as proud and stiff-necked, to others as truth incarnate. Without doubt, it is her silence that sets the drama into motion, and the question of whether it issues from a refusal or from an inability to speak constitutes an interpretive crux of Shakespeare's play. Cordelia's silence can be taken to exemplify countless other instances where the meaning, structure and intensity of a literary work hinge on the significance of that which remains unsaid.

As twenty-first century modes of communication have altered, the narrating self has had to shift quite rapidly to accommodate the changes. This panel invites scholars to examine the ideological work currently being done by public feminist intellectuals (such as bell hooks, Hortense Spillers, Barbara Ehrenreich, Angela Davis, Wai-Chee Dimock, Cheryl Clarke, Louise Erdrich, Elizabeth Alexander, Jewell Gomez, among others) in the viral age of YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, and asks for a reconsideration of the idea of the "public" and the "social."
