Cosa: 21st International Colloquium of American Studies, in collaborazione con l’ambasciata USA di Praga e la Czech and Slovak Association for American Studies.

Quando e dove: 22-24 june 2017, Palacký University, Olomouc, Czech Republic

Deadline: 30 marzo 2017.

Tema e obiettivi: la conferenza ruota intorno al tema del luogo/posto (place), in tutte le sue declinazioni:

  • How does literature, film, television, art, history and cultural geography reflect the notion of the human body/subject/identity or objects as being situated or emplaced?
  • How does literature respond to Yi-Fu Tuan’s notion of place as a field of care?
  • Does the identification of place have to involve an “us/them distinction in which the other is devalued” (David Harvey)?
  • Should one speak of constructing or producing a place? (“Place, then, needs to be understood as an embodied relationship with the world. Places are constructed by people doing things and in this sense are never ‘finished’ but constantly being performed.” (Nigel Thrift)
  • How are places “produced” by cultural practices such as literature, film and music?
  • How is the human subject and identity constructed or produced by places?
  • Which new kinds of places appear in recent American literature?
  • Place as home, outdoor places, indoor places and their changing meanings over time.

Come proporsi: inviare un abstract di 250 parole a colloquium.olomouc@upol.cz e michal.peprnik@upol.cz.

Link e altre info: i dettagli della conferenza sul sito della CSAA. Sarà necessaria la registrazione (40 euro – 3o per i dottorandi) che include 2 pranzi e l’accoglienza. Gli articoli inviati saranno sottoposti a peer review per la rivista Moravian Journal of Literature and Film della Palacký University Olomouc Press.
