Within the current political discourse and political turmoil, representation of women’s races, identities, cultures, precisely of minority women, continue to be under discussion.  Women critics and writers have discussed and examined how current political discourse have changed the understanding of identity in connection with ethnicity, race, color, and language. Identity is formed and shaped by culture, beliefs, race, ethnicity, and space among several other factors.Stuart Hall argues “Identity is never complete, always in process, and always constituted within, not outside, representation.” With this in mind, howcomplex then this process of construction becomes when color, race, or religion emerges as defining factor of whether or not one belongs?

CFP: Communication and Society: A New Era

The first “controlled openings” in the Algerian mediatic space occurred in the aftermath of the 1988 social movements. NAQD partially examined this phenomenon in its issue number 8/9 (1995). At this time, the unequal flows of North-South information had been reinforced by the launching of numerous satellites that covered most of the planet. Everywhere, from Tonga to Ahmedabad, trans-border television was deployed without any constraints other than the acquisition of parabolic antennas by the public. In that special issue of NAQD we sought to interrogate the position of television which, in the context of post-modernity, appeared both as a privileged object of mass communication and an instrument of democracy.

Queer Corruptions

Sunday, September 30, 2018

“Queer Corruptions” will examine the theme of queer texts that corrupt characters who encounter them within a narrative. We are looking for papers that explore how a text that is discovered by a character/s in a narrative serves as a queer agent that corrupts the character/s. Consider, for example, Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray in which Lord Henry gifts Dorian with a small book bound in yellow cloth that turns out to be Joris-Karl Huysmans’ Á Rebours, a seminal French Decadent novel. It is this book that begins to take hold of Dorian’s psyche and serves as his introduction to queer desire.

“Complexities, Appeals, and Paradoxes of Language” International Conference

Friday, August 31, 2018

Those scholars committed to an inter-disciplinary perspective on human experiences confront centuries-old divisions between and among the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities, competing investigative methods, descriptive foci, and explanatory emphases. Bolstered by specialization, administrative demarcations, professionalization, and expertise, the discontinuities generate trajectories of intellectual enrichment and progress.  On the other hand, have scholars within these intellectual spheres, disciplines, and area studies become passing ships in the night?  What would constitute evidence of this condition, if this is, indeed, the case? Have scholars not been displaced from public discourse and social media?

Ecocriticism plays a significant role in shaping environmental consciousness. Representations of nature’s agency become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crisis.

Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:

Temporality and Transportability in Contemporary Cinema – SCMS 2019 Panel

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Moving images are an evocative site for inquiries into various modes of articulations; however, these inquiries have largely detailed its cinematic borders without further exploration of alternative expressions of the medium. This panel delves into the ephemeral space that emerges in moments where expressions and experiences of cinema make meaning while breaking and shifting boundaries of time, space, sound, and image. It speculates on how contemporary moving images have become portals for moving and fracturing the boundaries of cinematic temporalities. We invite contributions that pay specific attention to works that address:

- Notions of temporality and/or transportability through the lens of spectatorship and/or embodied experience

American Postmemory: Slavery in Black and White / Deadline 9/30

Recognizing that the New World economy was historically based on the system of slavery and that the United States came into being as a slave-holding nation, we experience the lasting effects of slavery in all facets of contemporary US society and culture. This panel seeks papers analyzing contemporary representations of slave history from the black and white perspectives. While we are very familiar with African American representations of slavery in a number of cultural media, this panel is particularly interested in how contemporary representations of slavery created by people of European descent differ from those of African Americans. How is slavery remembered differently in black and white?
