PANEL DESCRIPTION:

War Cinema : Final call for abstracts

updated: 
Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 4:31am
Jura Gentium Cinema

We are looking for contributions to a special issue, "War Cinema," of JG Cinema, an online journal that deals with film, globalization, and issues of social justice. This issue will deal with war cinema and address question such as the following: how does cinema move between the national and the global in imagining, reflecting, fictionalizing, or inventing life during wartime? How does film confront, evade or displace issues of war and wartime? How can we think about both film and war in a global context? What categories of social cohesion or contestation have emerged from the way cinema has staged wartime?

Rethinking Baudrillard and Feminist Theory [deadline 11/1/2010] ACLA 2011, Vancouver, 3/31-4/3/2011

Panel proposal for American Comparative Literature Association annual meeting

From Jane Gallop's 'French Theory and the Seduction of Feminism', Meaghan Morris' 'Room 101 or A Few Worst Things in The World' to Douglas Kellner's 'Baudrillard's Affront to Feminism,' the French sociologist Jean Baudrillard has been widely condemned in the 80s and 90s as an anti-feminist philosopher. This criticism makes some sense: Baudrillard's major mistake has indeed been his caricaturizing of feminism and feminist theory as mere emancipation or equal rights discourse.

Writing in Online Courses: Disciplinary Differences--Call for Papers for a Proposed Edited Collection (Jan. 31, 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 22, 2010 - 4:41pm
Phoebe Jackson and Chris Weaver, William Paterson University

Writing teachers know that writing itself is not a neutral act of articulating knowledge, but a highly contested act of constructing oneself in relationship to one's environment. We are also aware of how online spaces differ from traditional spaces and how those differences affect the way that teachers and students construct themselves in relationship to each other. This edited collection will look at how teachers in different disciplines have grappled with these issues and what they can tell us about writing as an act of negotiating identities.

Medieval Badiou: A Roundtable: 46th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, May 12-15 2011

updated: 
Wednesday, September 22, 2010 - 4:08pm
Ruth Evans / Antony Hasler, St Louis University Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies

The panel will address the ways in which medievalists have created, or can create, a dialogue with the work of the philosopher Alain Badiou. What is – or could be -- the impact on medieval studies of Badiou's radical reframing of ontology? What do medievalists make of his insistence that philosophy must acknowledge its dependence on four extra-philosophical conditions of thinking, namely science, politics, art and love? What of his dispute with the linguistic turn in philosophical thinking and in the humanities' disciplines in general, a turn that has had a profound effect on recent medievalist work of the past two decades? How does Badiou figure as a "count-as-one" in medieval studies? The deadline for this panel has been extended to 9/27/2010.

Queer Encounters in Afro-Diasporic Space, ALA, April 13-17, 2011, Athens, Ohio

updated: 
Wednesday, September 22, 2010 - 1:22pm
African Literature Association

African literature has often envisioned queer encounters within the frame of Afro-diaspora. Wole Soyinka's Joe Golder from The Interpreters (1965), the emblematic figure for such encounters, is an African American returning from the "other side" of diaspora. Simultaneously, travel across Afro-diasporic geographies frequently queers African protagonists, as their bodies and desires extend in new spaces and assume new configurations. Those who travel from Africa to Europe, the U.S., and the Caribbean experience their desires as unruly, refusing to follow the ethno-racial demands and sex-gender object choices their personal and collective histories dictate.

Serial Narratives and Temporality

updated: 
Wednesday, September 22, 2010 - 12:33pm
NeMLA Convention 2011, Rutgers University

|
This panel addresses the various relationships between seriality and temporality.
The serial principle has a important influence on contemporary culture: novels, movies and television shows, comic books, video games, etc. are published in series. Consequently, this principle largely informs contemporary ways of conceiving, producing and making sense of narratives in general. This panel wants to locate the importance of seriality within our present-day mediascape.
