The organizers of this seminar invite abstracts for American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) 2022

 

The goal of this panel is to provide a platform to locate the fast-evolving theoretical precepts in translation from a postcolonial and cultural studies perspective. Taking an in depth look at the possibilities and challenges posed by translation, we aim to demonstrate the ways in which ‘ethical’ translation in various possible senses can be integral to forming a resistance culture to counter the political environment in the metropole, which aims to suppress multilingual and multicultural realities in the US and beyond.

Today, experiments about how humans think usually take place in a lab, allowing researchers to locate thought processes in the brain with unprecedented precision. However, writers have experimented with thinking for much longer. For instance, Virginia Woolf argued in her essay “Thoughts on Peace in an Air Raid" (1940) that a new form of (women's) writing can cause a shift in how British men think and bring about peace. Between the Acts (1941) demonstrates how tone, rhythm, and diction can produce different cognitive registers—Elizabethan, Enlightenment, and Victorian—thus connecting form and cognition.

The popularity of the Netflix Series The Chair seems to be tied to its hyperbolic depictions of faintly legitimate power struggles that circulate on contemporary college campuses. But in focusing on the slapstick character Bill Dobson (male, white, hopelessly romantic), the narrative offers a political feint that distracts from actual abuses of power in academic life, abuses that are often misogynistic. While the #MeToo movement as a cultural, feminist, and antiracist force has been slowly and steadily uncovering and altering landscapes of gendered harassment and abuse across our society, academia itself as an abusive culture has remained fairly immune to these critiques.

The avant-garde has often been defined by its asserted antagonism towards existing norms, and, in turn, critiqued for its ultimate co-option or complicity in those norms. Building on this rich tradition of reflection on the significance and role of the avant-garde, this seminar is interested in shifting the focus to its collaborative dimensions: its networks and communities of production and consumption, including editors and publishers, distributors and readers, and literary networks and communities, alongside the more-studied figure of the individual artist/author. Robert Darnton has influentially referred to this as a “communications circuit”; Mark S.

The virtual conference explores  how contemporary cinema negotiates the spaces at international film festivals. Our scope includes contemporary cinema from different parts of the world, including India and non-English speaking countries. The growing presence and proliferation of film festivals in their varied manifestations leads us to posit: What is the nature of contemporary transnational cinema that is attracting international attention? How does  this intersection play out in global reception, marketing, exhibition and  distribution? What kinds of academic and theoretical interventions can emerge from this development?
