The Working Dead: Capitalism, Mortality, and Their Discontents (panel)

Sunday, February 13, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic’s disproportionate infection and fatality rates among the working class, coupled with the increasing peril from climate catastrophe, has foregrounded the existential precarity of those on the unfortunate side of the wage relation and empire. This panel considers, however, that in the absence of full human flourishing—in Marx’s word, Gattungswesen—the proletariat is, in a sense, already dead prior to the expiration of their physical bodies.

The 65th American Studies Association of Texas (ASAT) Conference will be held November 2-4, 2022, at Collin College-Frisco, Texas. Our conference theme is “Space & Autonomy.” While scholars and researchers in various disciplines have examined the relationship between space and autonomy for centuries, perhaps millennia, our need to negotiate between these two concepts has never been more pressing: we have had to reconsider our personal and public spaces in the face of a pandemic; we have had to reconceive of the geography of our urban spaces and infrastructure to confront climate change; we have had to maneuver around the constantly shifting political climate in a fractious nation; and we have had to negotiate the ever expanding realm of cyberspace.

American Furies: Collective Action and the Politics of Moral Outrage

Myra Mendible, Editor

Call for Chapter Proposals for Edited Collection -- Retreating to the (Modern) Past: Vintage and Cottagecore Lifestyles in the Digital Era

Modern life has become defined in many ways by our digital experiences, and it is in this technological environment that a retreat to an idealized version of the past has been increasingly realized and depicted through social media. The distinctive aesthetics of cottagecore, dark and light academia, and vintage movements represent creative cross sections through which individuals blend pop culture, literature, fantasy, art, and lifestyle elements in an often fantastical, romanticized, or idealized version of the past—one inherently informed by and expressed through a modern, digital present.
