Call for Submissions: PostHuman Joyce: Machines, Informatics, Technology (edited collection)
“In conception and technique I tried to depict the earth which is prehuman and presumably posthuman.” (Joyce, discussing “Penelope” in a letter to Harriet Shaw Weaver, 8 February 1922, Letters 1:180, Selected Letters, p. 289)
Essay proposals are invited for a collection entitled Posthuman Joyce: Machines, Informatics, Technology. The relation between Joyce and cyberculture has garnered increasing attention within Joyce studies, but Joyce’s relation to the posthuman is not often addressed. The posthuman is itself a varied concept: it encompasses the three “waves” of cybernetics—the homeostatic, the reflexive and the virtual; it includes the amalgam of the human being and mechanical and/ or electronic devices; it also includes a thoroughgoing critique of the ideal of disembodied information that would make the seamless union of the human being and intelligent machine possible. The essays in this volume will explore all facets of the posthuman in its relation to Joyce and Joyce studies. Leer el resto de esta entrada »
Una nueva convocatoria de un congreso sobre ecocrítica:
Environmental disciplines have recently gained prominence due to the potentially devastating consequences of climate change: increasing natural disasters, the greenhouse effect, temperature variations, changing sea levels, etc. Such issues have raised awareness on the necessity for a drastic change in thinking. Ecocriticism—along with other green disciplines dealing with the relationship between society and the environment—places nature as the center of the intellectual debate. As Kate Rigby states, “culture constructs the prism through which we know nature.” Reading Nature Conference aims to explore from a critical perspective how such a prism is constructed. International reputed experts, along with young scholars will examine the way in which different notions on nature and the environment are conveyed in cultural manifestations.
