Labor, Leisure, and the Anthropocene: ASLE, Detroit, MI, June 20-24, 2017

updated:

ASLE: Association for Studies in Literature and Environment
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Seeking conference paper proposals for ASLE: Association for Studies in Literature and Environment.   

The Anthropocene has developed largely because of our cultures of work and our work machines. This fact calls for a reevaluation of work. How might this effort proceed? How should we reimagine labor and leisure in light of climate change? What does the news of the Anthropocene teach us about ideologies of labor and leisure? What does the naming technology of “the Anthropocene” make possible? What does it suppress or disable?   

Stardom in Contemporary Bollywood

Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 31, 2017

Popular Hindi films stars are a vast but still largely untapped area of academic interest. Within film studies, a number of articles and book chapters have probed the significance of stars as compelling personas, industry assets and bellwethers of larger social trends. As yet, though, there is no volume or collection that brings together a set of reflections on stars and stardom in one forum. This edited volume fills this gap with a sustained and diverse consideration of the phenomenon of stardom in contemporary Bollywood.

Seeking proposals for a special session at the 2017 NeMLA Convention in Baltimore, March 23-26.  How does a riot speak?

Presentations welcome on riot in literary and theatrical works, such as poems and plays by Anna Deavere Smith, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Luis Valdez, as well as work in other contemporary media and social spheres. Papers on the literature and voices of the Stonewall Riots and papers with an emphasis on urban, cultural, ethnic, and Queer studies approaches and cross-cultural approaches to the phenomenon of the riot are also welcome.

Contemporary Latin American poets have used satire and humor to comment upon the social and political realities of their countries as well as for their own pure and often mischievous pleasure, a special brand of art for art's sake. This panel will examine the wealth of techniques Latin American poets have practiced from palimpsest to word play, irony to black humor, hyperbole to double entendre, juxtaposition and collage, to name but the most prominent.

"Doing Theory": theory@buffalo 20

updated: 
Friday, September 23, 2016 - 10:01am
Comparative Literature Department at SUNY Buffalo
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2017

In recent years, the value of critical theory has been questioned by various thinkers for reasons that may seem contradictory. On the one hand, it has been subject to criticism for its excess, for being redundant in the face of actual facts. On the other, it has been seen as lacking, impoverishing the object of analysis by forcing upon it a limiting framework. In response to this, humanities scholars have sought out new analytic tools, for example in the fields of neuroscience, cognitive science, and biology. This 20th anniversary issue of theory@buffalo speaks to this “existential crisis” being experienced in the humanities. Is it time to move on from theory and cultivate other ways of thinking?

Radical Humanities: The Radical Tradition in the Humanities

updated: 
Thursday, December 1, 2016 - 11:52am
Humanities Division of Essex County College
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 30, 2016

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED to DEC. 30.

From March 21-24, 2017, the Humanities Division at Essex County College will host its Fifth Annual Humanities Conference, "Radical Humanities: The Radical Tradition in the Humanities." Although the idea of radicalism can, in some ways, seem antithetical to our understanding of "tradition," this conference will, in part, examine the roots and patterns of radical thought in humanities discourse (including literature, philosophy, art, music, theater, dance, media, architecture, and design) as well as explore works, ideas, and movements that may be seen as radical or revolutionary.

Lucas Malet, Dissident Pilgrim: Critical Essays

Popular novelist, female aesthete, Victorian radical and proto-Modernist, Lucas Malet was a literary tour de force in her own day, yet her work has been largely neglected by contemporary readers and critics. A daughter of Charles Kingsley, Malet was part of a creative dynasty from which she drew inspiration but against which she rebelled both in her personal life and her published work. Scholarship by Talia Schaffer and Catherine Delyfer has reopened critical enquiry into the work of this fascinating author, and we are seeking contributions in order to expand this emerging field of study.
