Cornell EGSO Conference 2024: Conflict/Resolution

Deadline for Submissions: January 24, 2024

Conference: March 15-16, 2024

Call for Academic and Creative Proposals:

“Conflict is not another word for crisis or for war or for competition. Conflict is a condition of intellectual life, and, I believe, its pleasure. Firing up the mind to engage itself is precisely what the mind is for—it has no other purpose. Just as the body is always struggling to repair itself from its own abuse, to stay alive, so is the mind craving knowledge. When it is not busy trying to know, it is in disrepair.”

- Toni Morrison, “Grendel and His Mother”

Post-Soul Humor MLA Panel

updated: 
Thursday, December 7, 2023 - 4:12pm
Jasleen Singh and Alex C. Valin
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2024

This panel invites researchers to consider how African American writers deploy humor within what critics have termed the “post-soul,” “post-Black,” “Black post-Blackness,” and “New Black Aesthetic” movements. Derek C. Maus, in Post-Soul Satire (2014), notes that the propensity for Black satirists to turn their critiques inward at the Black community rather than outwardly toward white institutions marks a key shift from ‘soul’ to ‘post-soul’ aesthetics.

Every community craves a sense of identity in this world, and continuity with the cultural past. This is more so with the communities whose language, literature and culture are on the verge of extinction on account of multiple factors. Literature and culture can offer indigenous communities a sense of belonging and promote social cohesion, respect for diversity, human creativity as well as help people connect with each other. Hence, the call to preserve endangered folk cultural heritage of communities such as the Jetor, an indigenous nomadic community of Paschim Medinipur and Jhargram settled on the edges of Kangsabati and Subarnarekha. UNESCO has declared 2022-2032 as the decade of indigenous languages.

The Global Eighteenth Century: Bodies, Texts, and Ideas in Motion

Thursday, December 7, 2023 - 4:01pm
English Language and Literature Association of Korea (ELLAK)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 2, 2024

Felicity A. Nussbaum suggests that we need to formulate new critical framings about the widened eighteenth century as well as a long one. In what ways can we widen the breadth, scale, and scope of eighteenth-century studies from a global and planetary perspective? How might we come up with ways to think about the interconnectivity among ideas, cultures, and texts that “move” beyond the boundaries of the metrapole and the margin, near and distant?

 

Call for Papers | Beyond the Object: Immaterial Pasts, Immaterial Futures

Tuesday, November 28, 2023 - 1:41pm
Diffractions (Universidade Católica Portuguesa)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 15, 2023

The next issue of Diffractions explores immateriality in artistic and cultural practices as a form of both expression and resistance. For centuries, the histories of artistic practices (as well as historiographies and historicities) have been anchored to materiality and the production of objects. As Michel Claura argues, “[t]he history of art is the history of the technique of art” (1969, 83). Indeed, curatorship as we know it today initially developed around objects and their need of care.
