This panel examines travel and emplacement in response to crises. Interruptions to normative modes of travel in the ongoing wake of COVID-19 reveal fault-lines in the ways such norms are understood--how travel bans and exclusionary rhetoric extend national borders inward and outward, from the targeting of racialized international students, to the upheaval of the global passport rankings, to travel advisories crossing settler-state and tribal boundaries. Recent approaches to travel writing, mobility, and place studies have emphasized dwelling, emplacement, and urban exploration as a way of engaging with the seeming shifts in discussion towards travel within rather than across space.
By considering antifascism’s historical aspirations to destroy fascism alongside Derrida’s neologistic distinction of deconstruction from Heidegger’s phenomenological Destruktion of metaphysics, the organizers of this seminar seek papers that probe the possibilities and limits of conceptualizing deconstruction as/toward an anti-fascism. Among questions to consider are: Is there room in anti-fascism for a deconstruction that both semantically and philosophically distances itself from outright destruction? Must a deconstruction of fascism specify the “anti” of “anti-fascism,” perhaps through an analysis of deconstruction’s critique of dialectical thinking (à la Deleuze)?

Issue 31 (2020): Art, Disease, and Expression
Science and art are the very nature of human attempts to understand and describe the world around us. As COVID-19 continues to dominate public discourse across the world - its ongoing effects trickling into every facet of our lives - the relationship between our health and how it affects the way we move through society has never felt more prescient. The 31st issue of FORUM aims to explore what has been identified as ‘sickness’ in literature and art through the years. How have the body and mind been treated by writers, artists, and cultural commentators - in sickness and in health.
