Radical Materialisms

Boston College English Graduate Conference

April 6th, 2019

 

***We are pleased to announce that we have extended the deadline for submissions to February 8th***

 

New materialisms and object-oriented ontology offer a radical reorganization—perhaps a democratization—of human/object relations, deemphasizing human agency in favor of a “parliament of things.” This conference asks if such approaches have been too quick to abandon human politics altogether. Can new materialisms be both conceptually and politically radical?

Essay proposals are invited for a volume in the MLA Options for Teaching series entitled Teaching Postcolonial Environmental Literature and Media, to be edited by Cajetan Iheka. In the past decade, critical readings of texts from formerly colonized societies have increasingly combined postcolonial and ecocritical perspectives. The rising interest in postcolonial ecocriticism is reflected in curricular offerings, which include entire courses or sections of courses devoted to novels, stories, plays, films, and other media focused on environmental issues in postcolonial settings. The proposed volume sets out to establish the scholarship on the teaching of postcolonial ecocriticism.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

Both Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault took the body as an object of critical inquiry but explored it in divergent ways. This collection of essays, under contract with McFarland and Company, will bring together scholars working from Lacanian and Foucaultian perspectives to interrogate the body. Collectively, the papers selected for this volume will aspire to answer, among others, the following questions: how do Lacan and Foucault approach the body, and what new forms of subjectivity emerge when we pay attention to the body? What are we allowed to do to or with our bodies, and what are we allowed to ask others to do to or with our bodies?
