The Twelfth Quadrennial International Comparative Literature Conference    

 

Literature, Life, and the Biological

   

 

Time: December 15-16

Venue: 10F, Chueh-seng Building, Tamkang University 

               New Taipei City, Taiwan     

 

Life in its biological sense never ceases to be the object of literary, political, medical, scientific, and philosophical speculation and engagement, and literature often serves as the testing ground for thought experiments about the nature of life. This preoccupation has crossed epistemological, disciplinary, and generic boundaries, encompassing transdisciplinary perspectives and cross-cultural dialogues through and beyond the biological-material principle.

Late in their careers Foucault and Deleuze both explored an intriguing question: what makes life, or the state of being, desirable? Agamben has noted how this question reveals the importance of life in relation to truth discourses. For these philosophers, literature is an invitation to a voyage, a passage, and an adventure into a new dimension of life, indicating that forms of life are always yet “in the making,” denoting a creative genesis, transformation, and the creation of a new image of thought.

Literature, like biology, is itself “a passage of Life that traverses both the livable and the lived”; hence, the space of literature is a space to live and to change. Instead of seeing life as “one biological principle,” modern biology emphasizes the manifold tendencies of life in its encounter with different sorts of matter and other environments. Thus, it is imperative for scholars in literary and cultural studies to think through “encounter” in relation to the singularities of existence in a wide array of fields. In philosophy, art, and literature—in genres such as (post)modern fiction, science fiction, cyberpunk, queer fiction, world literature, and ecoliterature—along with fields such as new materialism, posthumanism, and various others, the “biological” is seen working as relations, opening up new areas of study. We welcome papers or panel proposals that engage with any aspect of the general theme of “Literature, Life, and the Biological.” Possible topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

 

  1. Comparative literature in the age of the Anthropocene
  2. The unwanted or improper life
  3. Power over life
  4. Life and the virtual
  5. The livable and the lived
  6. Biopolitics/beyond biopolitics
  7. Forms of life
  8. Technology/technogenesis
  9. Information and cybernetics
  10. Translation
  11. The posthuman, transhuman and nonhuman
  12. New materialism
  13. Animal studies

 

The official language for the conference is English. All participants will procure membership status in the Association. Free lodging for paper presenters traveling from abroad is available for two nights during the conference. Those wishing to participate are invited to submit a 300-word abstract to Secretary General Dr. Joseph Yu (josephyu@mail.tku.edu.tw) by March 17, 2017. Submissions must be accompanied by the presenter’s name, e-mail address, tentative title, a short bio, as well as an indication of whether any computing or electronic equipment (e.g., laptop, projector) is needed.

CALL FOR PAPERS

After the World:

New Possibilities for Comparative Literature

 

The Comparative Literature Association of the Republic of China

 

Confirmed invited speakers (in alphabetical order):

Professor Ali Behdad (John Charles Hillis Professor of Literature, University of California, Los Angeles, USA)

Professor Martin Puchner (Byron and Anita Wien Professor of Drama and of English and Comparative Literature, Harvard University, USA)

Professor Samuel Weber (Avalon Foundation Professor of Humanities, Northwestern University, USA)

 

We take great pleasure in announcing that the Eleventh Quadrennial International Conference on Comparative Literature, sponsored by the Comparative Literature Association of the Republic of China (Taiwan) and hosted by the English Department at Tamkang University, Tamsui, Taiwan, will be held on December 13-14, 2013. The general theme of the conference is “After the World: New Possibilities for Comparative Literature.” 

Although comparative literature has always been a field in “permanent crisis,” the recent wave of alarm bells about its impending demise seems to be accompanied by a new sense of urgency. Taking the new warnings as an invitation to check our bearings and find new orientations, we would like to invite comparatists to submit papers that critically reflect on the changing position of our discipline in relation to what used to be called the world.

Globalization studies has shown one thing clearly: the (old) world has dissipated. On the one hand, we no longer live under “one” world, whether it is defined by culture, nationality, internationalism, or humanity. On the other hand, the recent geopolitical gravitation toward the non-West and the reemergence of the concept of world literature have paradoxically signified the appearance of “multiple” worlds and the reappearance of one new holistic system. In the 1960s, Deleuze was already anticipating this shift when he invoked the “chaosmos” as more fundamental than the monadic single world. More recently, critics and theorists have returned to Heideggerian “worlding” and “de-worlding,” experimented with new concepts such as the planet, the globe, or the “unworld,” or embarked upon emergent methodologies such as transnationalism, cosmopolitanism or cross-culturalism.

What remains (undead) in our discipline? What comparative mediations are called for to express the worlds without one world, the globe without fixed worlds, the emerging new forms of life and collectivities of place? How do new conceptualizations of the (post)world add to or compromise our sense-making of it, or intervene in our “reworlding” of its previous incarnations? By asking such questions, we are also looking for possible intimations of the contemporaneity of comparative literature and for ways to show how literary and other kinds of representation do reveal to us realities that are hopefully shareable, in this world or across multiple ones.

We welcome paper or panel proposals that engage with any aspect of the general theme. Possible topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

1. The world: new proposals
2. Renewing comparative literature
3. Translation between/across worlds
4. Transnationalizing the planet
5. The world without us
6. The worldly critic and the text
7. Digitalizing the world
8. Remapping sexuality
9. Ecologies or bios after the world
10. Animal and its Other  

The official language for the conference is English. Taiwan-based students and scholars must join the Association in order to present at the conference (membership dues may be paid at the conference or at any time prior to the conference). Free lodging for paper presenters traveling from abroad is available for two nights during the conference.

Our working deadline for proposals is March 17, 2013. Notice of acceptance will be sent out before April 15, 2013. Please send your proposal (300-500 words) and short bio to:

翻譯風險:文學媒介的新脈絡
Translating Risk: Literary Mediation in New Contexts

We take great pleasure in announcing that the Tenth Quadrennial International Conference on Comparative Literature, sponsored by the Comparative Literature Association of the Republic of China and hosted by Tamkang University in Tamsui, Taiwan, will be held on May 29 and 30, 2009. The general theme of the conference is “Translating Risk: Literary Mediation in New Contexts.”

Risk is everywhere. Since the beginning of human development, risks of all sorts have generated adaptive responses that open paths for change and transformation. In particular, recent pronouncements about the rise of a “risk society” points to new contexts where intensified risks are producing far-reaching consequences. In a similar vein, the discipline of comparative literature has recently experienced an intensification of surmises about its “permanent crisis” into claims of its imminent death. We believe that possibilities remain to be explored in such memento mori assertions, especially if issues of disciplinary stability are considered in the more general context of risk-taking in an age of intensified uncertainty and unpredictable technology.

More generally, we propose to explore the place of risk in literature, in the hope that understanding risk in the literary and cultural mediation of reality (already the “translation” of risk into stability) would prove helpful in shedding light on the current situation and the future of our discipline. The aim, therefore, is not to seek better schemes of risk management but to explore how the future of our discipline may be tied to structural transformations of our times, necessitating fresh outlooks.

We welcome proposals which deal with risk in relation to literature or to the constitution of literature. Possible topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

1. (Discourses of/on) the crisis of comparative literature
2. Translation as risk-taking in face of “monstrous loss”
3. Ecocriticism and the risk society
4. Projecting, visualizing, translating, and mediating risk in literature
5. Media as/in crisis, problematic of virtuality, mediation, and hypermediacy
6. Translating globalization and trans-nationalism
7. Fear, everyday life, and the imagining of the future
8. Gender studies, sexuality, body, and risk
9. Theories of contingency and preemptive measures
10. Risk in theories of the biopolitical and the posthuman in our biotech age

The official language for the conference is English. Papers accepted will be arranged for presentation at the conference. Authorization from presenters to publish their papers in our conference proceedings is expected.
Our working deadline for proposals is December 15, 2008. Notice of acceptance, together with a registration form, will be sent before January 15, 2009. All participants from abroad whose papers have been accepted will be provided with board and room for the duration of the conference. Please send your proposal (500 words maximum) and short bio to:

Some Like It Hot, Others Don't: Embodiment of Glocal Knowledge

 
 

Call for Papers
(Submission Deadline Postponed to 2003/10/31)
Some Like It Hot, Others Don't: Embodiment of Glocal Knowledge
THE NINTH QUADRENNIAL
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPARATIVE LITERATURE
Comparative Literature Association of the Republic of China
National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C.

 
 

We take great pleasure in announcing that the Ninth Quadrennial International Conference on Comparative Literature, sponsored by Comparative Literature Association of the Republic of China and hosted by National Taiwan University, will be held on NTU's campus in Taipei, Taiwan, on 18-20 June 2004. The general theme of the conference is "Some Like It Hot, Others Don't: Embodiment of Glocal Knowledge."

 
 

Weather is a fact that the human beings confront daily in their encounter with the natural world. And yet the quotidian nature of this encounter nevertheless has provoked the most amazing forms of systemization by the human being. However, the discursive power of weather and climate once wielded in explicating the various facets of humanity seems to have eluded closer scrutiny by recent critical discourses, so much so that we have nearly forgotten that as recent as the colonial times weather and climate were treated as quasi-scientific evidences for substantiating cultural prejudices. Race, sex, and many other bewildering and bewitching aspects of the tropical encounter, for example, have been facilely accounted for as being shaped by the forces of heat and hotness. At a time of intensifying globalization, the idea of heat has acquired yet other cultural functions: it for instance alerts us to the alarm bells rung over global warming and the raging fire of terrorist guerrilla warfare. To be sure, some types of heat need to be beaten and others don't, depending on the politics involved. And we should never treat heat lightly.

 
 

Under this general theme are seven subtopics:

 
 

1. Cultural Representation of Heat and Humidity
2. Climate and Critical Pedagogy
3. Travel, Food, and Tropical Imagination
4. Place, Micro-Literature, and Minor Literature
5. Race, Gender, and Body Heat
6. Sensuality and Bodily Consciousness
7. Fire, Flame, and Dangerous Things in World Literature

 
 
 

The official language of the conference is English. The conference seeks papers that span the disciplines of literature, film, art, architecture, music, subculture, etc. Papers accepted will be arranged for presentation at the conference. We also reserve the right to publish the papers in the proceedings of the conference.

 
 

The deadline for proposals is October 31st, 2003. Notice of acceptance will be sent before December 15th, 2003. Please send your proposal (300-500 words) and a brief CV to:
