ASA 2018 Roundtable, "American Studies in the Plantationocene: Emergent Methods for the Long Emergency"

updated: 
Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - 4:22pm
Joyce Chaplin, Harvard University, and Rebecca Evans, Winston-Salem State University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

The term "Plantationocene" has recently been proposed to describe the extractive and alienating processes of racial capitalism that have undergirded imperialism, racial slavery, environmental degradation, and climate colonialism. We invite proposals that interrogate this term in relation to the methods and field imaginaries of American Studies. Proposals may address questions such as: How does the Plantationocene inflect or change practices of periodization, (trans)national studies, and disciplinary boundaries within American Studies? What histories and texts take on new or different significance in the context of the Plantationocene? How has or hasn't the field begun to address the Plantationocene? How can we teach (in) the Plantationocene?

The Voice of One Crying in the Wilderness: Religion, Activism, and Protest

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - 1:15pm
Josh Privett / Georgia State University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, May 31, 2018

Too often, especially in the United States today, religion is seen as the enemy of socio-political progress and change. But even a cursory glance at U.S. history — the Underground Railroad, the Civil Rights Movement, the Sanctuary Movement — attests to the role religion and religious individuals have played in resistance movements. This panel seeks papers that consider the influence of religion on political activism and protest movements — and not only in America, but globally.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, May 31, 2018

It has been ten years since the untimely death of American writer David Foster Wallace, who is best remembered for his gargantuan novel, Infinite Jest. This panel seeks papers that focus on any aspect of DFW’s life or work. Proposals might address how critical appreciation of Wallace has changed in the last decade, or they might chart new paths for the next decade of Wallace scholarship. Special preference will be given to proposals that are related to this year’s conference theme of socio-political activism, which you can read more about on the SAMLA website.

I am editing the collection "Doing Vegan Studies," which is under contract for publication in the “Cultural Ecologies of Food in the 21st Century” series published by the University of Nevada Press and slated for publication in 2018. I have a great set of contributors and essays, but due to a contributor being unable to complete an essay, I’ve lost a valuable contribution on veganism and race. I am hoping to solicit an essay that addresses this topic in a compelling and original way. Potential topics include – but are not limited to:

Veganism as perceived white identity category

Problematic comparisons between human slavery and the enslavement of animals

Veganism and Black Lives Matter

Veganism as postcolonial strategy
