What role could philosophy play to the challenges posed by climate change, resource depletion and the diverse political and cultural crises our societies face in the 21st Century? How to identify the toxic effects of the logic of advance capitalism and neoliberal globalization in a cognitive, social and structural level? What kind of narratives, cartographies and figurations account for the fractures and contradictions of our times? How to reinvent subjectivity when trying to make it compatible with mutating universes of value?

The 53rd Annual Comparative World Literature Conference: Borders, Place, and Translations

Dates: April 25th-26th, 2018

Location: Anatol Center, California State University, Long Beach

From Starbucks’ retail-branding as a “third place” between home and work to Benedict Anderson’s Imagined Communities, the places of our lives are simultaneously locations and conceptions. To be in a place is to do the representational work of defining that space’s affective and pragmatic borders.

Graphic Content Warning: Graphing Explicit Modernist Bodies (MSA 2018 Columbus)

updated: 
Saturday, December 9, 2017 - 4:33pm
Modernist Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 30, 2018

“The natural object,” Pound writes, “is always the adequate symbol.” Nevertheless, Modernist literature is plotted along bodily representations that often seem far from the realities of their correlative “natural object.” This panel will consider the tension between Modernism’s representative strategies and the gendered objects that Modernist writers “graph,” focusing particularly on Modernist representations of female, queer, non-white, disabled, and otherwise marginalized bodies. How do the literary strategies of Modernist writers complicate, limit, or make space for bodies, or bodily functions, that might have been given a “Graphic Content Warning”?
