"Shadows of Empire: Decline and Transformations of a Global Vision"

updated: 
Tuesday, January 19, 2021 - 10:07am
Franco Laguna Correa / University of Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 30, 2021

Recent political transatlantic events, from the culmination of the Brexit to the attempt of coup in Washington D.C. in January, demand new interpretations of the declining role of populist political formations of the 21st century. On the one hand, Trump's America aspired to the establishment of a totalitarian regime that would counterbalance the emergence of China as a global political leader; on the other, the negotiations leading to the Brexit revealed a kind of British exceptionalism that is not at all new in relation to continental Europe.

True Crime Index
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 30, 2021

As an increasingly popular genre, true crime has enjoyed a fascinating surge in both academic and cultural interest over the last twenty years. As a relatively new academic discipline, scholars such as Mark Seltzer, David Schmidt, Tanya Horeck, and many others have published ground-breaking studies of the phenomenon of true crime and our various responses to it. However, the gap between popular culture’s interest in true crime and the burgeoning academic discipline remains wide, and True Crime Index invites reviews that seek to close this gap.

It has been 150 years since Matthew Arnold published his groundbreaking work, Culture and Anarchy. His essays in book form are not only a powerful critique of Victorian society and values but also of modern ones. Contemporary political, economic and cultural issues provide an opportunity to revisit Arnold’s thought critically, to assess his enduring legacy, and to appraise the modern predicament in relation to distinguished cultural achievements from the past.

Theorizing Zombiism II: Undead Again

 

29-31 July, 2021

 

University of Gothenburg

 

The zombie as an allegory for cultural, social, and scientific analysis spans almost every discipline including humanities, biology, mathematics, anthropology, economics, and political science. This range of use for the zombie narrative is a clear indication of its adaptability and viability as a distinct framework for critical theory. Theorizing Zombiism 2: Undead again will thus serve as a timely and much-needed platform for the development of international and interdisciplinary relationships between researchers, educators, practitioners and other interested parties.

“Only the media techniques of the 19th century, that is, photography, gramophone and film, had saved the sensuous reality from the absolutism of the book – however, one could formulate more radically: before the absolutism of language”, – N. Bolz writes in the book "Das ABC der Medien". The proposed opposition between writing as an "informational" media (which was most interesting to McLuhan) and "sensory" media needs critical reflection. This is especially important in conditions when a person's immersion in the media space implies that not only the information brain memory should be involved, but also various performative practices of experience and memory of the body.

**please submit proposals via the form on our website - link below**

 

Metamorphosis refers to a dramatic change in the form, structure or character of an entity, distinctly characterised as a process whereby the old is subsumed, absorbed or self-devoured to provide the substance to forge the new—but how is this concept experienced in contemporary culture?
