What’s Left? Marxism, Literature and Culture in the 21st Century / Deadline: 20 March, 2017

The crisis and collapse of Marxism as the dominant paradigm of left intellectual thought undoubtedly remains one of the most seismic shifts in the ideological history of the late twentieth century. With the collapse of actually existing socialism in the Soviet Union, the pressure of postmodern concepts, and the rise of new social protest movements in the spheres of  race, gender, and sexual orientation, Marxism came to appear the ‘signifier par excellence of theoretical hubris, redundancy and error’ (Pendakis and Szeman, 2014). In the twenty-first century however, precipitated by the succession of economic and ecological crisis scenarios, Marxist criticism has experienced a critical resurgence.

III INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN TRANSATLANTIC STUDIES

May 12th-13th 2017

Real Colegio Complutense at Harvard (Cambridge, MA)

 

Transatlantic culture often presents itself as a narrative of encounter and dialogue that transcend the limits of the local. However, the trace of colonialism, the living memory of exile, and an uneven distribution of economic, political, and symbolic power haunts transatlantic imagination. This conference aims to explore the many ways in which antagonisms, uneasy pluralism, and tense negotiations of difference overdetermine sites of Transatlantic cultural practices.

Gendering PostNature

Genders Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017

This special issue of Genders invites essays, reviews, roundtables, and creative work that address the emergent category of “postnature” in the new geological epoch of the Anthropocene. We seek interventions across local and global frameworks that consider the ways postnature is informed by gender identities, norms, discourses, and practices, as well as their socio-political, scientific, popular, and aesthetic regulation. As a disciplinary norm deployed to police the “unnatural,” nature has proved to be a labile signifier used to endorse or discredit a wide spectrum of cultural formations.

"Dangerous Charisma"

The age of Trump has brought the issue of charisma in leadership to the fore. How does Lawrence help us understand the mutual attraction of leader and acolyte? Lawrence wrote about charisma in personal and political relationships, and his contemporaries found him charismatic. Papers might consider how Lawrence represents charisma,  how his ideas of leadership change, or how others responded to him. Please send abstract by March 15 to Joyce Wexler: jwexler@luc.edu

In the opening pages of Sherman Alexie's Reservation Blues (1995), Spokane Indian storyteller Thomas Builds-the-Fire comes into ownership of legendary African American bluesman Robert Johnson's guitar, a magical object that both furthers his band's musical aptitude and reopens the scars of historical memory. In Gish Jen's Mona in the Promised Land (1996), her titular Chinese-American protagonist, newly-relocated to an affluent New York suburb, converts to Judaism, arguing to her mother, "we are a minority, like it or not, and if you want to know how to be a minority, there's nobody better at it than the Jews."

CFP:Mississippi Goddam Everywhere: The Ends of Southern and American Exceptionalisms We are seeking abstracts for 20-minute papers for a panel of the Southern United States Forum at MLA 2018. The myth that the United States (and the “American” colonies before that) is the greatest and freest nation in the world has always been deeply intertwined with the myth of a problematic, antidemocratic, backwards South. On the flip side, many southerners have long embraced the notion that the region is culturally and politically different from the rest of the nation in terms of food, music, religion, family life, literature, and more.
