Exploring the Scandalous

updated: 
Friday, December 15, 2023 - 12:08pm
ESSE Conference 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2024

For this seminar as part of the ESSE conference 2024 in Lausanne, 26-30 August 2024, we invite abstracts on the topic/narrative structures/media conditions of the scandalous (in the 19th-21st centuries) through the lens of  in_visibilisation. Scandals – in the context of sex, money or power – tend to involve obfuscation, an audience that is in the dark, but willing to see, agents who have an interest either in disclosure or in concealment. These interests are shot through with power that can be gendered, often contains a class-imbalance, is sometimes racialized, and not infrequently centres on non-normative desires. One area in which these dynamics of scandalization become particularly obvious are the cultural practices of fame and celebrity.

Theme and Scope

F[r]iction - Graduate English Conference

updated: 
Thursday, December 14, 2023 - 8:03pm
University of Toronto, Graduate English Association

 F[R]ICTION

    Conference date: April 26, 2024 | Abstracts due: January 10, 2024 (*extended deadline*)

 

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Amber Jamilla Musser, Professor of English (CUNY Graduate Center)

 

In Anna Tsing’s ethnography Friction (2005), Tsing offers “friction” as a metaphor for thinking about global connection: “A wheel turns because of its encounter with the road; spinning in the air it goes nowhere. Rubbing two sticks together produces heat and light; one stick alone is just a stick. As a metaphorical image, friction reminds us that heterogenous and unequal encounters can lead to new arrangements of culture and power.”

Acts of Literary Creation- An Undergraduate Conference

updated: 
Thursday, December 14, 2023 - 4:37am
Department of English Language and Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 19, 2024

The Department of English Language and Literature at Bilkent University (Ankara, Turkey) invites submissions for 'Acts of Literary Creation,' an undergraduate conference to be held Friday, April 19 April, 2024. Submissions for online and in-person presentations are welcome. 

From storytelling and architectural design to moviemaking and economic production, the act of creating is intimately tied to our senses of self and community. What is creativity? What constitutes a creation? What constitutes a creature? What are the political implications of the act of creation? How might an attention to creativity impact our understandings of the history of literary thought?

Anglo-Israelism and the British Imperial Imagination

Submission deadline: 20 December 2023

Anglo-Israelism is a religious movement that identifies the Anglo-Saxon peoples of Britain and northern Europe as the ethnic descendants of biblical Israel. It emerged in the eighteenth century and reached its peak in the early twentieth century, gaining favour among the upper echelons of society. Although the presence of official Anglo-Israelist organisations began to decline in England in the 1970s, Anglo-Israelist themes have been and continue to be influential in England and abroad. Despite this significance, Anglo-Israelism is not well understood by scholars or the public.

Call for Book Chapters on Discourse, Meaning, and Understanding

Wednesday, March 20, 2024

                                                    Call for Book Chapters on Discourse, Meaning, and Understanding

Discourse is a term that yields several meanings to academics in the human and social sciences. It is often used to describe a formal and/or informal way of text and talk, which seeks to empower some social groups and subordinate others in the social world. This definition might sound hasty at first sight in as much as discourse per se came to signify multiple forms of knowledge, systems of thought, and perhaps most important of all, the beliefs and attitudes people hold about life, death, (co)existence and the like.

What Remains? Literature and Ethics in a Time of Crisis

updated: 
Thursday, December 7, 2023 - 4:13pm
Mid Sweden University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 16, 2024

The relation between ethics and literature became a topic of intense academic debate at the end of the twentieth century—at a time, that is, when that relation was no longer self-evident after the challenges of postcolonial, feminist, and deconstructive critique. Humanist proponents of literature’s role as an empathy engine (Nussbaum, Rorty) entered into conversation with theorists who took inspiration from the work of Jacques Derrida and Emmanuel Levinas to valorize literature as a site of singular otherness—as an occasion of ethical encounter rather than moral instruction (Attridge, Eaglestone, Miller).

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

updated: 
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?

 

Routes beyond Roots: Indian Performing Arts and Virtual Culture(s)

Thursday, December 7, 2023 - 4:00pm
School of Music, University College Dublin
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2024

Over the last number of years, Indian classical dance traditions have seen major shifts in terms of practice, pedagogy, and performance, both ‘at home’ in India and in diaspora contexts. These changes have been intensified most recently by two primary and co-related phenomena; the global adoption of specific algorithmic social media and streaming platforms, and lockdown restrictions imposed in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. What happens to the embodied physical presence on virtual platforms? How has the format of the art form been modified to fit in digital spaces? What do these transformations mean for the future of the dance forms? How are socio-political issues embedded and addressed in such spaces?

The way violence is represented always influences its reception and integration within the cultural imaginary. The narration of violence is ingrained in our perception of ourselves and our communities, and those who report traumatic events then carry the responsibility of how they are received and memorialised.
