The launch of this new platform comes after a long preparation and seems to be a natural and logical outcome both of the rich glocal scholarly traditions and the substantial impact this community had in Hungarian studies in the last decades.

Critical conversations concerned with ecosystems often relate to various geos (-logies, -graphies, etc.), the anthropocene, and the techno-industrial. Yet, as Elizabeth Povinelli astutely questions, “[have] we become so entranced by the image of power working through life [namely biopolitics and its variations] that we haven’t noticed the new problems, figures, strategies and concepts emerging all around us…?” (4). The fluidity of ‘systems’ - whether they be ecological, political, social, etc.

‘…for women within oppressed groups who have contained so many feelings–despair, rage, anguish–who do not speak, as poet Audre Lorde writes, “for fear our words will not be heard nor welcomed,” coming to voice is an act of resistance. Speaking becomes both a way to engage in active self-transformation and a rite of passage where one moves from being object to being subject.’[1]

Call for Papers - Creature Redux: Considering the Pasts, Presents, and Futures of Chimera in Fiction and Popular Culture

Animals are the quotidian absolute Other. They are not inherently horrifying, dangerous, or invasive; nor do they have designs to usurp or subjugate humanity. In his lecture-turned-book The Animal That Therefore I Am, Derrida critiques the use of the word “animal” to describe an almost limitless array of creatures. “Animal” becomes a catch-all term for everything that is otherwise than human–and not the biological entity, but a specific, constructed hegemonic entity.

“With the collapse of various dyads – nature/culture, body/mind, conscious/unconscious, intentional/unintentional, expression/feeling – the binary of cause/effect also dissolves into dynamic biocultural processes in which humans take part. Experience is shaped relationally. “

Russia and/in America

Sunday, January 15, 2023

Since the dawn of the Cold War, U.S. popular culture has been saturated with narratives that pit a morally-righteous United States against a sinister, duplicitous Russia–a binary foundational to postwar American Studies. In the wake of the Russian invasion of Ukraine–and the attacks on democracy and human rights that it entails–the image of a menacing Russian presence is once again salient. Rather than redeploying a Cold War logic designed to disavow the sordid histories of the United States, this panel asks how we might approach the intertwined histories of Russia and the U.S. as a way of strengthening our critique of the oppression and exploitation perpetuated by both nations.
