NYC 2019 CMCS 8th International Conference (Web)

Venue: Terrace Club, New York City, USA
Time: 30.08.-01.09.2019
Abstracts by – extended –: 18.03.2019

Keynote Speakers:

  • Andrew Zolides (Xavier Univ.): Celebrity and Digital Narrative Practice
  • Basuli Deb (Rutgers Univ. and CUNY): From MeToo to UsToo: Celebrity Counterpublics to Migrant Counterpublics
  • Alex Symons (LIMS College): “Cultural Citizenship” in the Digital Age: Activism and Risks for Comedians in America

In the recent past, there has been an increased interest in exploring intersections of life writing and studies of celebrity culture. Storytelling is central to effective branding in fame. Furthermore, the use of biographical elements has been recognized as a rhetorical device in writing op-eds, personal essays, and public speaking that often raise awareness on critical issues in popular media. Biography, as Lola Romanucci-Ross points out, is mainly a useful symbolic tool for reflecting, rotating and reversing real-life situations. Like biography, autobiography, memoirs, and testimonials play crucial roles in mapping social facts.

The impacts of glamorous forms of storytelling in scandals, gossip, and rumor become so crucial that they are often studied as sociological data, regardless of whether they enable actual social change. For pop culture enthusiasts and social observers, celebrities may or may not be actual role models in telling meaningful stories and constructing subjectivity. Yet, fans and students often invest affective and intellectual labor when it comes to accepting, negotiating or contesting what appears to be significant in understandings of popular figures. Celebrity scholars are … read more (Web)

CfP: Inheritance (ZS: WSQ); DL: 01.03.2019 [REMINDERIN]

Donnerstag, Januar 31st, 2019

WSQ, „an interdisciplinary forum for the exchange of emerging perspectives on women, gender, and sexuality“ – Spring 2020 Issue; Guest Editors: Maria Rice Bellamy, and Karen Weingarten (New York) (Web)

Proposals by: March 1, 2019

To inherit is to receive, to gain, to be left with more. The term “inheritance” first brings to mind the bequeathing of property by a parent to a child. The exclusion of women from this form of inheritance has been a contested issue for millennia and figured prominently in the earliest feminist causes in the US and other Western nations. Remarkably, women in many parts of the US won the right to own and control property (inherited or purchased, be she single, married, or divorced) before they earned the rights of citizenship, particularly the right to vote.

While this call for papers begins with these most conventional understandings of inheritance, the goal of this issue is to facilitate a conversation on the many meanings and complications of the term “inheritance” and of the processes and experiences of inheriting, including the multiplicity of things that can be inherited and the varied ways these things can be transmitted and received across generations.

The editors are seeking papers that take a critical and transgressive approach to any and all aspects of inheritance, which in its most basic form involves one who bequeaths, items passed down, and one who receives. The consideration of inheritance then questions 1) who has the power to decide what is worthy to be passed down and who is worthy to receive? How is this power granted, questioned, and subverted? How do people divested of this power find alternative ways of leaving a legacy? 2), what … read more (Web).

CfP: Stonewall at 50 and Beyond: Interrogating the Legacy and Memory of the 1969 Riots (Event: Paris, 06/2018); DL: 15.01.2019 [REMINDERIN]

Donnerstag, Dezember 20th, 2018

University of Paris-Est Créteil, France / IMAGER and Paris-Dauphine University (Paris-Sciences-et-Lettres) (Web)

Time: 03.-05.06.2019
Venue: Paris
Proposals by: 15.01.2019

The original announcement of the conference was followed by well-founded criticism regarding the organizing committee’s and scientific committee’s lack of inclusiveness. The composition of these two committees was consequently modified. The call for papers below was revised by the new organizing committee.

The Stonewall riots are fraught with a conflictual memory. A standard narrative might read as follows: In the night of June 27, 1969, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender patrons of the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village bar on Christopher Street in New York, refuse to endure yet another occurrence of the police harassment they routinely faced. For five days and nights, the neighborhood was the scene of a confrontation between rioters and the police. In the following weeks and months, this upsurge reinforced emerging liberation movements that coalesced into a diverse political force. The events were celebrated the following year and have since generally been presented as “the birth of the gay liberation movement” that is commemorated in today’s yearly LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) pride marches.

On the fiftieth anniversary of Stonewall, this conference aims to shed critical light on this major event and its possible effects on the development of LGBTQ mobilizations around the world. It seeks to … read more (Web).
