Centralizing Non-White Voices in Midwest Studies

updated: 
Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 9:47pm
Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 30, 2017

From regionalist writers Gene Stratton Porter and Edward Eggleston through modernists Sherwood Anderson and Willa Cather up to contemporary authors Marilynne Robinson and Jeffrey Eugenides, Midwestern literature is often thought to be by and about white people. This is clearly a falsehood.

Post-Truth: An Interdisciplinary Exploration

University of Portsmouth

March 24th, 2018

Keynote: Professor Steve Fuller (University of Warwick)

 

Post-Truth, as a concept, seemed to exemplify 2016. The term, in fact, was appointed word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries, underscoring its pre-eminence. The phenomenon is characterized by notions of ‘fake news’, ‘alternative facts’, and ‘false information’, but is this simply academic residue from the postmodern debate trickling down to its broader expression in social media?

REMINDER CFP ReFocus: The Films of Pablo Larraín

Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 9:43pm
Laura Hatry, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

One of the central figures in contemporary Chilean film, director Pablo Larraín (b. 1976), presents a harsh portrait of his country’s current reality and of its tortured history in a direct, sometimes surprising, and often controversial oeuvre, never demurring in the face of violence or painful truths about the past. His first feature film, Fuga (2006), which was poorly received by critics, focuses on a composer’s mental health issues; his striking trilogy about Chile’s recent history covers the Pinochet dictatorship in Tony Manero (2008), the last days of the Allende presidency in Post mortem (2010), and the democratic downfall of Pinochet in 1988 in NO (2012).
