2011 PCA/ACA National Conference-Fat Studies Area

Thursday, October 7, 2010 - 5:28pm
Popular Culture/American Culture Associations

Fat Studies is becoming an interdisciplinary, cross-disciplinary field of study that confronts and critiques cultural constraints against notions of "fatness" and "the fat body"; explores fat bodies as they live in, are shaped by, and remake the world; and creates paradigms for the development of fat acceptance or celebration within mass culture. Fat Studies uses body size as the starting part for a wide-ranging theorization and explication of how societies and cultures, past and present, have conceptualized all bodies and the political/cultural meanings ascribed to every body.

Call for Chapters, Manufacturing Phobias

Call for Chapters: Manufacturing phobias

Various groups have recognized that hope and fear are very powerful driving forces capable of moving nations and shaping its actions. They have utilized both of these emotions to achieve their target, notwithstanding the negative impact on society as a whole. This phenomenon is not new. However, the current trend in this phenomenon is worth investigating in the form of a book containing a number of essays each of which expounds a different aspect of such phenomena. This is, by nature, an interdisciplinary book. Scholars from different disciplines are invited to contribute to this volume.

Nature of the Contradiction: The 13th Annual Conference of the Marxist Reading Group, March 31-April 2

Thursday, October 7, 2010 - 11:39am
Marxist Reading Group, University of Florida

In the current moment of economic and environmental crisis, the concept of sustainability has become a popular touchstone of both neoliberal and conservative agendas. Whether arguing for a green industrial revolution or economic dematerialization, both groups fail to realize the deeper contradictions between sustainability and capitalism's mode of production. But if "we're all environmentalists now," as Neil Smith has suggested, it becomes necessary to engage ecological politics without participating in late capitalism's appropriation of "green" rhetoric.
