What does it mean to travel through time?

What is the impact on the individual and how widely do the repercussions of individual actions in the past ripple into an ever uncertain future?

What is the importance of a single moment or a single person’s actions when we consider them as a momentary player in history?

Can one person really save, or damn, the world?

These are some of the questions asked by the syfy series 12 Monkeys.

After Europrovincial Theory: New Directions, New Formations

Friday, September 1, 2017 - 12:41am
American Comparative Literature Association

Thursday, September 21, 2017

In After Theory, Terry Eagleton writes: “Theory is general, culture specific.” If we read this assessment along with contemporary proclamations of the irrelevance of theory in reading literature, a few assumptions about what is and isn’t considered to be theory come into view. If the interruptions of culture mean death for theory as generalization, how does that immediately mean death of theory tout court? The epistemic scandal (Rey Chow, 2006) behind this melancholic gesture betrays a provincialism of Eurocentric theory.

Nationalism and its Others: Literary Genealogies (ACLA 2018)

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 - 9:33pm
J. Engel Szwaja-Franken and Samuel Jaffee
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 23, 2017

The invention of nations in the 19th and 20th century entailed the creation of national literatures, often assembled anachronistically to fashion adoptive literary ancestors fit for a modern people. Literature has thus been instrumental in the construction and maintenance of nationalism, but it has also played a privileged role for regionalist and counter-nationalist projects, many of which have drawn on literature when assembling their own genealogies. Our seminar aims to consider both how nations and nationalism are constitutive of the space and scope of literature (e.g. the cultivation of a national literature, and political museumizing through literature), and also examine literary projects at odds with the form and space of the nation.
