"Travelling Melville" - MLA Melville Society Panel (Seattle, January 5-8, 2012)

Milette Shamir

The title of this panel does not refer to the several trips Melville took during his lifetime, or to the many voyages depicted in his novels. It evokes, rather, the influential essays "Traveling Theory" (1983) and "Traveling Theory Reconsidered" (1994), in which the late Edward Said argued that a text's movement from its point of origin to other geographical locales and historical situations is never a facile process. As a text is unhinged, transferred, translated, and institutionalized in a new setting, explained Said, it meets changing conditions of acceptance and unexpected forms of resistance. On the one hand, its movement may tame the force that was provoked by its original circumstances and render it subdued and sterile.

Forum Journal CfP: Issue 12 - Authenticity (Deadline 14 February 2011)

Forum: The University of Edinburgh's Postgraduate Journal of Culture and the Arts

The idea of 'authenticity' assumes that a work can be 'genuine', 'authoritative', 'legitimate': rooted in fact or truth. Yet the possibility of 'authentic' representation has always been haunted by the prospect of its antithesis, the 'fake' or fraud, and both have become increasingly difficult to define in our globalising world. We (re)adapt the notion of authenticity to our own lives and cultures, while the very act of declaring something 'authentic' may be construed as a form of dominance and/or rebellion. Although many theoretical perspectives have questioned the validity of 'authenticity' as a framework within aesthetic and cultural fields, it continues to inflect our understanding of past and present.

The Importance of Kitsch, deadline January 31, 2011

Modern Horizons Journal

For the April 2011 edition of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various intellectual, artistic, emotional, and political manifestations of kitsch in our time.

In our current culture, the word 'kitsch' has come to be associated often with tacky souvenirs and cheap trinkets. However, there is a thicker sense given to the word by various thinkers and authors in the twentieth century, even if it is regularly connected with an idea of culture.

The Great War: From Memory to History

An Inter-disciplinary Conference at The University of Western Ontario

10-12 November, 2011

There are now only a handful of surviving veterans of the Great War. Within a few years, we will lose even those who lived through the war as children on the home front. At that point, the war will pass from memory to history. This critical transition is at the heart of an international conference that seeks to examine the experience of the Great War from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives, including the humanities, the social sciences, and the arts.

A series of questions guide our discussions:
