CFP: Repetitons, Permutations, Becoming -- SFSU Cinema Studies Conference [Oct 15-17, 2015, San Francisco, CA]

Friday, March 27, 2015 - 1:39pm
Cinema Studies Graduate Association / San Francisco State University

In our rapidly shifting culture, what defines the contemporary moment is fluid and impossible to pin down. This conference will look at the relations between newness, sameness, fluidity, and change in cinema and cinematic technologies from all eras. The cinematic apparatus itself is a technology of repetition and replication, and the effects of postmodern culture are marked by self-replication, simulation, and mediation. Postmodernism is about the now, and borrows from the surfaces of history while losing the history itself. Cinema and the cinematic is increasingly marked by intermediality of both culture and "text" and constant expansion of what these terms can mean.

Re-visioning Activism:The Fourth International Conference on Asian British and Asian American Literatures December 18-19, 2015

Friday, March 27, 2015 - 3:44am
Institute of European and American Studies, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan

Asian American activism emerged in 1968 as a political movement in which Americans of Asian descent came together to fight rampant racial stereotyping and institutional inequalities. Since its beginning, however, it has never been simply a shared fight for basic civil and human rights in the face of second-class citizenship. Over the past fifty years, it has become clear that minority experiences of racial discrimination are embedded within other social systems of subordination, including classism, sexism, ageism, speciesism, and environmental violence, and that the Asian Americans have played integral roles envisioning and making manifest a more just future.

MMLA Illustrated Text Special Session: CFP Due April 5, 2015

Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 9:06pm
Midwest Modern Language Association

The Illustrated Texts session welcomes papers as well as innovative or even illustrative presentations that interrogate the concept of illustration broadly construed. In addition to proposals that explore traditionally illustrated texts, this panel also invites proposals that question the illustrative nature of much of our own work. Does illustration "light up, clear up, or elucidate" our text as its etymology suggests or is it operating differently?

SAMLA 2015: Victorian Literature and Science (abstracts due June 1, 2015)

Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 5:14pm

Literary scholarship has long traced the intersections between Victorian fiction and 19th-century science, particularly with regard to Darwinian, Spencerian, or proto-Freudian influences on narrative structures and character portrayals. This panel invites submissions that consider the influence of 19th-century scientific and/or medical writings on literature in the broadest sense (fictional representations, plots, or poetry). Transatlantic considerations are particularly welcome. By June 1, 2015, please send an abstract of 250-500 words along with AV requests and a brief bio paragraph to Doreen Thierauf, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, at thierauf@unc.edu.

JSR: Journal for the Study of Radicalism—a print academic journal published by Michigan State University Press—announces a call for articles and reviews for our tenth year of issues.

Marx and The Arts

Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 1:34pm

According to Marx, man's aesthetic sense is socially acquired, rather than innate. As cultural producers, artists must labor in the system for the benefit of the market as well as be committed to the working-class cause. In keeping with the theme of SAMLA87, this panel will seek to explore the ways that social constructs can influence all mediums of art. Papers dealing with any aspect of Marxism will be considered as well. Please send abstracts, A/V requirements, and a brief bio to Emma Baughman, Georgia State University, at emmacbaughman@gmail.com Deadline is 10 June 2015.

Migration & Marginalities: C21 Routes - deadline: 1st April 2015

Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 12:39pm
C21: Centre for Research in Twenty-First Century Writings, University of Brighton, UK

Across Europe, the public discourses of migration continue to trade on anxiety and fear. Much of this debate seems wearying familiar: populist politicians rehearse familiar anti-immigration rhetoric, while EU states co-operate to target so-called "irregular" migrants. At the same time, European migration appears to display new contours and patterns that such repetitions seem unable to record. Migration within Europe has also changed, as the EU expansion has combined with the calamitous collapse of finance capital.

Studies in South Asian Film and Media: Special issue on 'The Region',

Thursday, March 26, 2015 - 6:43am
Studies in South Asian Film & Media

The economic and political/cultural impact and transformation due to neoliberal policies and the globalizing agendas of capital are to be seen at the level of the region as much as they are at the national. Indeed, under the thrust of global financial and technological forces the region as a linguistic, geographical and political entity is at once sutured to and independent of the nation. The power of capital and corporations, often circumventing the national structures of power and governance, allows them to directly intervene into and shape the affective and ideological landscape of specific regions. The very process of integration into capital is disintegrative, heightening the region even as it dissolves its distance from capital.
