CFP RMMLA 2014 Subjectivity in Motion: Chinese Literature before 1900 (Abstract due March 1, 2014)

This panel at the 2014 Rocky Mountain MLA Annual Convention invite presentations on the topic of "Subject in Motion: Chinese Literature before 1900". In the context of pre-twentieth century Chinese literature, subjectivity as a theoretical imperative draws wide critical attention to the process in which political, ideological and literary discourses profoundly formulated authors' personal and collective experiences, and yielded long-lasting impact on the social and cultural trends of the ensuing centuries.

In recent decades, Popular Culture has increasingly become the engine of social and cultural change. It also takes constitutive influence on the design of individual life concepts. Not least, popular culture is one of the most successful global culture industries. Thus, it is a representative culture with fundamental socio-political significance (see Kleiner 2012: 17). Popular Culture in its present form has emerged since the 1950s and can be understood as a social substructure which industrially produces diverse knowledge and concepts of knowledge as offers of information and entertainment. Popular Culture can be simultaneously understood as a way of communication, as a function of mass media, as a social institution, and as an aesthetic category.

Call for Papers:
Memory matters. It matters because memory brings the past into the present, and opens it up to the future. But it also matters literally, because memory is mediated materially. Materiality is the stuff of memory. Meaningful objects that we love (or hate) function not only as aide-mémoire but as memory itself.
