SAMLA 94 ASLE Affiliated Session - The Plantationocene Past, Present, and Future

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:03pm
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 1, 2022

While the term “Anthropocene” is frequently used to describe the current geological era of human-created and accelerated climate change, multiple other terms have emerged as scholars expand their understanding of the interconnectedness of human endeavors and their consequences. A useful alternative is “Plantationocene,” which emphasizes the economization of life and places the foundations of global climate change within the intertwined plantation systems of the preceding centuries, including how they continue to be reproduced in new, nefarious ways in the present day. This session seeks presentations that take any aspect of the plantation and its enduring legacies as a starting point for interrogating literature.

Bergen 2022 aims to continue the reflection on spatiality started during the 2021 conference, addressing the theme of the dynamic representation of space in Italian cinema, television and new audiovisual media production.

The idea on which we propose to reflect is that the classical space paradigm has been altered, breaking the rigid geometry of the causal structure. This new spatiality creates a movement without purpose and without destination, a line of action without aim, a condition of wandering that becomes the hallmark of the modern form.

Refugees from Nazism: Innovation in Engineering and Industry

Historically, Exile Studies have concentrated on social, political and cultural themes but in recent years – most notably with the Conference of the Gesellschaft für Exilforschung in Vienna in 2014 and the subsequent publication of its proceedings Kometen des Geldes – economic questions have moved from the periphery to the centre of academic enquiry.

Gardening to Remember, Gardening to Forget Gardening as Memory Work in Contemporary Fiction

Gardening is generally considered as an affective-material labor whereby, plants, soil, matter, and objects are transformed—through practices of care, love, and attention—into new well-planned landscapes, vegetation, and a good harvest.  Even though early writing, in Latin and Greek was more concerned with agriculture than gardening, writing about gardens has a long history in France and England, an tends to be rhetorical — in an attempt to tie the beauty and harmony found in great landscapes to higher artistic pursuits.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: The Spectre Haunting Academia: Understanding the Role of Academia in the Rise of the Far-Right

updated: 
Monday, May 23, 2022 - 5:36am
Universität Heidelberg
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

The aim of this conference is to situate the rise of the Far-Right in conjunction with academic spaces and practices i.e., to understand the macroscopic role Academia has in producing, challenging, and responding to the proliferation of this adaptive ideology. How do scholarly practices and the Far-right interact? How do Far-right governments impact Academia, both nationally and globally? Why are Academia’s responses to and/or co-options by the Far-right so culturally impactful?
