    ACLA 2020: Cancelled
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    It is with great regret that the Board of the American Comparative Literature Association has determined that it is no longer practical or ethical to continue with the conference as planned. We are, therefore, canceling the 2020 conference in Chicago. The Board has been closely monitoring the Coronavirus outbreak and weighing the risks of holding the 2020 conference as scheduled, March 19-22, in Chicago. Last week, with no official bans on travel or large gatherings imposed by municipal and...

    The Ancient Novel and Material Culture (Society for Classical Studies 2021 Annual Meeting)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The ancient novels are populated not just by people but also by objects. While individual studies, particularly on ekphrasis , have examined some of the uses of physical objects in ancient novels (Bartsch 1989; Holzmeister 2014) or the depiction of scenes from ancient novels on objects (e.g. Bruneau 1965), there have been few systematic examinations of the presence, function, and interpretations of material objects in and about ancient prose fiction more broadly. Notable exceptions include...

    Global theory and terminology for world literature (DITL) (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    When the founding fathers (and mothers) of the FILLM and the ICLA first met in the 1960's, they encountered some misunderstandings in the use of literary terms by scholars of different nations (the French illuminisme is not the Italian illuminismo : «enlightenment»). It was decided to constitute a global terminological reference lexicon; the standing project of an International Dictionary of Literary Terms (DITL) was adopted by the ICLA in 1966. Its purpose is still «a. to identify [through a...

    Cli(mate) Fi(ction) post-2016 (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Where is our Orwell when we need him? It is not easy to establish a core of literary works centered on our realization of the speed, power, and urgency of anthropogenic climate change, especially since 2015 or so, although the bare scientific facts have been with us for decades. But for reasons both psycho-social and practical (e.g. the mechanics of the book market), we must seek out recent, current, and even perhaps books "forthcoming" in time for our conference. Adam Trexler (2015) and...

    Ubu: Grotesquery in Political Theory (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Michel Foucault opened his 1974 seminars at the Collège de France - published as "Abnormal" - with a series of comments that link his theory of “governmentality” to the aesthetic category of the grotesque. Grotesquery, for Foucault, is the aesthetic effect that occurs when “a discourse or individual has effects of power that their intrinsic qualities should prevent them from having.” Drawing on Albert Jarry’s obscene portrait of Ubu Roi (Ubu the King) he elaborates a definition of grotesque...

    Imperial Environments: From Tropical Climes to Contemporary Crisis (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Before the term “climate” became irrevocably associated with the modifiers “change” and “catastrophe,” it had long circulated in the works of thinkers, from Hippocrates down to Montesquieu, as the factor that determined the character of peoples and nations. By extension, climate was understood to indicate which lands were ripe for imperial conquest, and which peoples were suited to conquering and which to being conquered. In short, the history of the discourse of climate is a deeply imperial...

    World Literature: Noise and Silences (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Current accounts of world literature repeatedly call attention to the decisive power of major literary languages to determine the structure of the system. However illuminating or accurate, these accounts inevitably move the focus away from languages that have not attained a comparable level of prestige, or that are not hegemonic. Some noise is always reduced out of the system, perhaps even a great deal of noise. The problem of holding in mind at once the structure of world literature and the...

    Global Soundscapes: Music, Politics, and Literature (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Essai sur l’origine des langues traces how language once filled with song and emotion becomes divested of meaning, distorted by commerce and conventions to mere rational forms of rhetoric, devoid of its original musical inflection. The fall of language and music comes to embody moral degradation in the pursuit of private interests, away from the most universal and energetic initial language and song, that of le cri de la nature . Robert Wokler eloquently...

    Performing Text in Music and Theater: Interdisciplinary Readings and Conversations (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    This seminar will provide a forum for conversation about text and performance in the interdisciplinary contexts of music and theater, including opera, drama, musical theater, song, and staged or dramatic reading. Performances in these genres are by definition both animated and challenged by their intermedial identities; interdisciplinary discourse similarly both thrives on, and is made prickly by, these same tensions. Our seminar will attempt to navigate some of this interdisciplinary territory...

    The Knowledge of Art (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Do works of art—works of architecture, painting, literature, and so on—provide a distinctive way of knowing the world? Do they shed a kind of light on human practices that works of philosophy or science do not? And if so, how should this peculiarly artistic knowledge be characterized? What would it mean to know art’s knowledge, or to translate this knowledge into a non-artistic idiom? Taking these rather abstract questions as a starting point, this seminar invites historically and...

    Widening the Narrows: Straits and the Oceanic Turn (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    Over the last decade, the “oceanic turn” has moved oceanic space from the margin to the center of literary scholarship. However, this new ocean-centric scholarship has tended to blur the diversity of oceanic space by focusing chiefly on the open ocean. Only recently have practitioners of the oceanic turn started attending to the distinctive roles and meanings of the more contained maritime spaces that line the edges of, and mediate between, the open oceans. As the editors of the 2018 collection ...

    Gentrification in Contemporary Fiction (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    The organisers - James Peacock, Nick Bentley and Ceri Morgan - invite abstracts for a seminar on representations of gentrification in contemporary fiction from around the world, with “gentrification” understood in its various related senses: as particular processes of urban transformation involving the displacement of certain socioeconomic groups by others; as a collective failure of memory and imagination; and as a spatial manifestation of neoliberal ideology. Although there are broad...

    Giorgio Agamben and Literature (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Wayne Stables

    Giorgio Agamben is one of the most compelling contemporary theorists of literature. Yet despite ever intensifying interest in Agamben’s work, his studies of literature and poetics remain a less explored dimension of his corpus. This seminar seeks spirited contributions that engage with Agamben’s reflections on literary texts, as well as those mobilising the concepts and interests of his aesthetics into new readings. Papers addressing the connections between literature and other aspects of...

    The Transformative Powers of Hate, Rage, and Other Ugly Feelings (ACLA 2020)
    Beitrag von: Redaktion avldigital.de

    “Love Trumps Hate,” now a popular liberal commandment, ascribes the most transformative political capacity imaginable to love, and implies that no world any liberal would want to live in can be generated from hate. Similarly, rage—specially when is considered a reaction to an act of injustice— is discounted by the liberal discourse as a violent, invalid political response. In other words, hate and rage, according to liberal politics, are irrational and dehumanizing feelings that need to be...
