Call for Papers: Special Issue, The Comparatist
Topic: Figuring Race
General Editor: Zahi Zalloua (Whitman College)

We welcome contributions that examine the notion of race in comparative studies and literary theory. How do we imagine, represent, and construct race today? What role does race play in the Humanities? How do we talk about race in an ideologically color blind society? How does racial difference relate to other type of differences? Can we foreground race while avoiding both the pitfalls of identity politics and the depoliticization of race by neoliberalism? Topics of interest could include:

Black Lives Matter

Critical Race Theory

Solidarity Movements

Intersectionality

Cosmopolitanism

The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA

CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
The conference programming committee invites proposals for papers, panels, roundtable discussions, lecture-demonstrations, movement workshops, dance works, and screendances that address the question of how dance is transmitted across time, locations, contexts, and media, and the implications of this transmission in and outside the dance field. We invite proposals that engage the following questions and topics:

MSA 19 Panel: Fascist Rebirth, Modernist Resistance

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Today we witness a resurgence of fascist rhetoric from parties offering various “alternatives” to the multicultural states that have come to characterize Europe and North America. Modernism, of course, is famously entangled with the rise of fascism, these xenophobic movements’ most notorious antecedent, and there is a new urgency to the questions that Griffin (2007), Ravetto (2007), Antliff (2007), and Ben Ghiat (2015) broached in their scholarly work.

“Minority Cultural Production and the Ethics of Pedagogies of Dissent” for ASA 2017: Pedagogies of Dissent

Proposals are invited for a session on “Minority Cultural Production and the Ethics of Pedagogies of Dissent” to be held at the American Studies Association conference in Chicago, Illinois from November 9-12th 2017.

 

Perhaps no other set of cultural objects has been more repeatedly called upon in pedagogies of dissent than minority cultural productions. Indeed, minority cultural production is often tasked to teach histories of domination and resistance along the axis of race, class, gender, and sexuality. Yet, such a task can often slides into liberal pedagogies of sympathetic identification and tolerance in which the aim is no longer material social transformation but personal understanding.

SHORT FORMS IN BECKETT. FRAGMENTS

Samuel Beckett’s prose and drama can pose many difficulties for a reader unfamiliar with their idiosyncrasies. Fragmentariness, or various fragmentary structures, narrative and dramatic alike, can be considered as one tenet of Beckett’s oeuvre, especially of his later works.  However, what do we mean when we describe his works in this fashion? What is, for example, the fragmentary narrative of The Unnamable or The Lost Ones?  Can we even speak of narrative in the first place, or do we, perhaps, need a redefinition of narrative?
