Forms of Devotion: Fan Culture(s) and Transformative Works (ACLA, Vancouver, March 31- April 3, 2011)

Monday, October 18, 2010 - 5:38pm
Regina Yung Lee, University of California, Riverside

As Donna Haraway puts it, "when were love and knowledge not co-constitutive?" How, then, does fan culture work in the plurality of linguistic, cultural, and geopolitical conditions facilitated by new media, and specifically the online environments which define contemporary fandom experience? What are its canons? Who actively reads fandom's texts, and what does that literacy entail? And whose purposes do these questions serve?

UPDATE: Reading Benjamin Reading, ACLA Vancouver (Deadline: 11/12/10; Conference: 3/31/11-4/3/11)

Monday, October 18, 2010 - 2:41pm
Brooks E. Hefner

In 1927, exactly one hundred years after Goethe first used the term "Weltliteratur," Walter Benjamin returned to Berlin from Moscow. He had spent his time there reporting on developments in Russian literature and film, and he arrived to find that his German translation of Marcel Proust's Within a Budding Grove had been published to strong reviews. Such multi-lingual and multi-national literary undertakings are central to Benjamin's entire corpus. While not a major figure in most narratives of world literature, Benjamin's involvement and theoretical interest in questions of translation, media, and cultural history suggest ways of placing him in these important contexts. But how do we read Benjamin's own reading?

Second Biennial Conference of the Defoe Society, 14-16 July 2011 [UPDATE]

Dr Andreas Mueller, University of Worcester (UK)

The University of Worcester, UK, will host the second biennial meeting of the Defoe Society on 14-16 July 2011. The society's continued ambition is to attract contributions that range across the extraordinary variety of activities and writings of Daniel Defoe and his contemporaries. The conference's aim is to encourage fresh examination of the socio-cultural and literary milieu of Grub Street and its "duncical" authors and "Scriblerian" enemies.

CFP: Cross-Ethnic Literary Consumption: Asian American and Native American Connections (AAAS New Orleans/May 18-21, 2011)

Monday, October 18, 2010 - 11:12am
Association for Asian American Studies

Call for Third Paper for Panel on "Asian American and Native American Literary Connections" for the 2011 Association for Asian American Studies Conference

Drawing on the work started in the September 2010 special issue of American Quarterly, we seek an additional paper for a panel on Asian American and Native American literary connections. As Paul Lai and Lindsey Claire Smith, the guest editors of that special issue, note in their introduction, the two fields are connected via their placement under the umbrella of "ethnic studies," but often diverge in terms of assumptions, approaches and focus.
