NeMLA 2023—Affectively Tuning into Daily Experiences of Energy and Natural Resource Extraction in the Americas

updated: 
Wednesday, August 10, 2022 - 9:33am
Alex Tough, University of Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Streaming a movie. Waiting in line for gas. Drinking a tall glass of water. These are day-to-day experiences that rely on forms of energy and natural resource extraction that are often hidden in plain view, entangled with dynamics of colonialism, transnational flows, digital assemblages, stock markets and neoliberalism. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly made these entanglements more felt. As such, we are tasked with unraveling these complex embodied and sensorial daily experiences of energy and extraction.

In the 1990s, transgressive fiction authors like Chuck Palahniuk, Bret Easton Ellis, and Irvine Welsh shocked, disgusted, and offended audiences with their depictions of terrorizing, murdering, and drug-abusing characters whose bad behavior rejected and subverted the Western hegemony of neoliberalism. But their behavior was only seen as “shocking” or “transgressive” because of its blatant opposition to the dominant paradigm. What does it mean to transgress norms, boundaries, and conventions in today’s post-9/11 world, when the paradigms of whiteness, masculinity, heteronormativity, etc. are not necessarily viewed as the ultimate gatekeepers of what is normal, standard, correct, or expected?

Loving Dystopia
A Global Interdisciplinary Conference

Friday 17th March 2023 - Saturday 18th March 2023
Prague, Czech Republic

Literally the opposite of utopia, or ‘perfect place,’ the term dystopia was coined in the mid-19th century and has been used to both critique laws, policies and actions by those in power, and to describe states of being.

A dystopian society is generally seen as an imagined state of existence or an imagined society, characterized by gross imbalances of power, injustice, cruelty, suffering and hopelessness, with either totalitarian or nonexistent — or at least invisible — and always unethical forms of government.

The End of Life Experience: 4th Global Interdisciplinary Conference

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 16, 2022

This inclusive interdisciplinary conference explores dying and death and the ways culture impacts care for the dying, the overall experience of dying and ways the dead are remembered. Over the past four decades, scholarship in thanatology and palliative care has increased dramatically. Our conversations seek a broad array of perspectives that explore, analyse, and/or interpret the myriad interrelations and interactions that exist between death and culture. Culture not only presents and portrays ideas about “a good death” and norms that seek to achieve it, it also operates as both a vehicle and medium through which meaning about death is communicated and understood. Sadly, too, culture sometimes facilitates death through violence.

What is resilience for people with disabilities? What is recovery? 

Narratives of illness, trauma and disability are often framed to emphasize recovery. Reflecting on resiliency, constructed ideas of normalcy, and “crip time,” Ellen Samuels writes: “Disability and illness have the power to extract us from linear, progressive time with its normative life stages and cast us into a wormhole of backward and forward acceleration, jerky stops and starts, tedious intervals and abrupt endings” (2017).

What is access? How do we expand educational spaces when we take the approach that disability is always in the room?

Jay Dolmage provides the following insight into academic ableism, referring to the “steep steps” of the academy. He writes:
