What sorts of specters haunt the postcolonial realm? How can we conceive of hauntologies that enable us to effectively listen to postcolonial specters? Derrida defines hauntology as a way in which we can learn to acknowledge those things about us or around us that we have forgotten how to notice. He emphasizes that by acknowledging specters, hauntology performs a gesture of “positive conjuration” in which specters are raised to be listened to and not in order to be exorcised. Acting as a disruption to western notions of space and time, specters function as transformative mediums of postcolonial recovery by making space for the co-existence of the past within the present and acknowledging the existence of alternative histories.

What does "materiality" mean for the study of literature, culture, and the environment today? Should we replace “outdated” theoretical models (i.e. Marxist materialism) with newer ones or is it possible to establish a productive dialogue between seemingly disparate generations or paradigms of thought?

Autotheory and Psychoanalysis at ACLA

Seeking papers for a seminar for this year's virtual ACLA--to be held on April 8-11 2021--entitled "Theorize Yourself: Autotheory and Psychoanalysis."  Submissions can be made on the ACLA portal through October 31.  Description below.

Conversations about autotheory circle around psychoanalysis as a conceptual touchstone, with the understanding that analytic theory, more than serving as one of the fields that autotheoretical writers engage, is itself a parallel discourse. “Freud’s dream” of the theory of the Oedipus complex appears, in one moment, to be an autotheory avant la lettre; in the next, it seems that the birth of psychoanalysis takes place in the sublation of Freud’s self-analysis.
