Challenging Williams

The forthcoming WCW Society Biennial Conference invites papers on an intentionally diverse range of topics, with the goal of seeking places and poems in Williams’s oeuvre where a (re)evaluation may be fruitful. In what ways does Williams's work continue to challenge us as readers, scholars, persons? Conversely, how may we be drawn or compelled to challenge Williams's work, as readers, scholars, persons?


Anti-Oedipus at Fifty (PCA/ACA, Philosophy and Culture Area, panel/roundtable) EXTENDED DEADLINE

Tuesday, November 30, 2021 - 5:41pm
Philosophy and Culture Area, Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association (Annual Convention, conducted virtually, April 13-16, 2022, http://pcaaca.org/area/philosophy-and-culture)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 23, 2021

Synopsis: Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia turns fifty in 2022. Awash as we are in libidinally-driven fantasy systems that reify pathological desire and injury as mythology, paranoid distortion as reality, and the resulting pair as ideology weaponized as moral justice, Anti-Oedipus would appear to be as urgent today as it was a half-century ago. The proposed session would be an occasion to explore it anew, both in its own right, and in terms of its enduring influence and importance.

All approaches are welcome.

 I am recruiting contributors for a collection of scholarly essays with the working title Starcrossed Century: Astrology in Global Society from World War One to Covid. The book is designed to address the identification of the history of astrology with "premodern" history. The historiography of astrology is very active and intellectually exciting, but it focuses almost entirely on the period before 1800. Yet never have there been more astrological believers and practitioners than today. So far I have committments for two essays, one (by me) on American astrologers and COVID, and one on astrology and identity in the sixties counterculture. I want to avoid too heavy a focus on the Anglophone world (although I would love a serious essay on astrology
