Deadline Feb 28 | CfP – “Black Lives,” CUNY ESA Conference

Call For Papers

CUNY Graduate Center English Student Association Conference:
BLACK LIVES

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 28, 2019 

Conference date: Friday, April 12, 2019 

CUNY Graduate Center
New York, NY 

KEYNOTES BY:
Michelle Wright, Emory University
Rafael Walker, Baruch College

“Black Lives” has emerged in recent years as a conceptual touchstone following the wake of Black Lives Matter, a galvanizing social movement of public protest against the persistence of institutionalized forms of anti-black violence that besiege Black individuals and communities on a daily basis, both within the United States and across a range of geopolitical contexts. The phrase implicitly challenges nationalist and global concepts of humanity that do not include blackness as a viable sign of life and citizenship. As critics such as Paul Gilroy, Denise Ferreira da Silva, Robert Reid-Pharr and  Henry Louis Gates Jr. have noted, “universal humanism” has been historically built upon a constitutive rejection of black being. To push back against such entrenched conceptual repudiations of black particularity, we take a cue from Jamaican philosopher and novelist Sylvia Wynter, who argues that black particularity paradoxically retains a utopian impulse for recognizing “our collective agency and authorship of our genres of being human” (2006). We intend for the conference to respond to the urgent need to think about the impact and meaning of “Black Lives” both as a touchstone for contemporary activism as well as a scholarly heuristic for research across a range of fields and disciplines. By doing so, we hope to make resonant the potentiality of blackness to signify as a radical node of meaning and being across a range of identitarian and relational articulations. (more…)

Due Jan 28 | CFP: University of Michigan 2019 Graduate Student Conference in U.S. History

Making History Public(s): Presenting the Collective

Friday May 10 and Saturday May 11, 2019

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

 

The United States is comprised of publics. Filtered through media, politics, and social, cultural and economic life, American publics materialize through national, international, state, and local avenues. At what point do they become visible? How do American bodies become public? What are the consequences of these processes?

 

“Making History Public(s)” will interrogate the creation of publics in the United States, broadly defined. Papers might investigate the making of publics in any number of ways: as citizenry or voting block; as audience or consumer; as the product of, or precursor to political mobilization or disruption; as transnational formation; as agent or passive actor. American publics might be defined spatially or ideologically, shaped through communication, proximity, or knowledge. They might be determined institutionally, informally, or discursively.

 

At the same time, this conference will investigate the ways in which publics become both producers of, and audiences for historical knowledge. We seek papers that position the historical actor and themselves as part of the active production of history, considering the role of presentation, display, exhibition, and preservation. What is the role of art, visual culture, sound, and material in making history accessible to academic and public audiences, and students? This might also include scholars working in pedagogy, digital humanities, museum studies, mapping, and other fields.

 

Our keynote speaker is Professor Ellen Noonan, Director of the Archives and Public History Program at New York University. She is the author of The Strange Career of Porgy and Bess: Race, Culture, and America’s Most Famous Opera (University of North Carolina, 2012), and her various digital history projects include: The American Social History ProjectMission US, and The Lost Museum.

 

Scholars working in all periods of American history, and in various modes of interdisciplinarity are welcome! Please submit an abstract of no

more than 300 words and a CV to the conference planning committee at umusgradconference@gmail.com. Proposals are due by Sunday, January 28, 2019.

Possible topics include:
– Contested meanings of “nature,” “ecology,” and “society”
– Sustainability and/or conservation
– Intersections and implications of emerging technology/science and everyday life
– What about nature, ecology, and society should not be re-imagined

The Advocate Call for Contributions

NEVER SUBMIT, CONTRIBUTE!

This fall, the Advocate invites everyone to start a conversation on Non-Democratic Futures in the wake of important elections held all over the world this year. For a while now, we have seen authoritarian leaderships rise to power through the popular vote in every continent. We also saw the rise of an Anti-Globalist discourses sewing together an alliance that connects these forces together as they claim to be fighting against elites and in the name of the common man. How have we come to this, and what can this politics of the New Right produce to our near futures?

We are interested in all types of analyses and perspectives on the topic. From historicity to futurology; from general trends to specific cases; from political institutions to social movements; and everything in between. We also welcome ways to conceptualize a new response on the part of the Left to these emerging challenges; new forms to re-build democracy, or even forays into how we can move beyond democracy in the future. Above all we are interested in sharing with our community at CUNY different ways to look at what the future promises us and what we can promise to the future.

We are looking forward to receiving contributions for the next issue by December 10th, if possible. We understand the end of semester can be though, so if you want to contribute to this topic but can`t make it through the deadline, we are still interested in your ideas, so send us anyway once you are done as we may at least publish it in our next issue. Also, if you have your own pressing topic you wish to share your ideas on, don`t hesitate to send us your contribution, as they may also make the cut in our general section.

Please do send your impressions, your thoughts, and your ideas to our new Editor-in-Chief, Rafael Munia, at rmunia@gradcenter.cuny.edu. Also ‘cc’ to advocate@cunydsc.org.

And yes, we pay for articles!

The Advocate pays $100-$120 for articles that are around 1500-2000 words, and about $150-$200 for longer essays that entail more research and labor. Other contributions like reviews and photo essays will also be compensated for at competitive rates. And of course, we promise enthusiastic editorial support and love from our team!

We look forward to some excellent contributions from you!
