ASAL 2013 mini-conference: 'DisLocated Readings'

21-22 February 2013

This two day event seeks to map the wider coordinates of the transnational currents of Australian literature including translation distribution, readerships, marketing and pedagogy, to counter the parochial tendencies of cultural nationalism that restrict the circuits of meaning exchange inshore.  By addressing three streams, Life-writing, Writing/translating the other, and Transnational, the symposium will provide a forum for the discussion of transnational translation and encourage reflection on the inherently interdisciplinary and cosmopolitan nature of Translation Studies.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Associate Professor Alison Ravenscroft (La Trobe University), Alice Pung (author of Unpolished Gem and My Father’s Daughter) and Dr Adele D’Arcangelo (University of Bologna, translator of Unpolished Gem).

The call for papers is available at http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/dislocated-readings/call-for-papers/.  Abstracts are due by 31 October 2012.

6.  Call for Papers: New Scholar Volume 2 Number 2 - The Belonging Project/The Belonging Issue
As an integral part of human experience, ‘belonging’ is a ubiquitous concept in many areas of the humanities and social sciences and beyond.  This is increasingly the case in the contemporary contexts of globalization, trans-nationalism, and the emergence of the network society, which have imbued issues of belonging with a renewed emphasis and increased urgency.  Yet, as important as the concept of belonging is to discourses on migration, citizenship, community and wellbeing, among others, it is rarely defined or interrogated at length.  While such ambiguity and elasticity is no doubt part of belonging’s efficacy as a concept, it nonetheless veils the complexities of processes and experiences of belonging/not belonging.

Following a successful interdisciplinary workshop and symposium on belonging, the organizers of the Belonging Project, an initiative by interdisciplinary researchers from Melbourne, are now calling for submissions for a special issue of New Scholar.  This special issue will showcase innovative research across disciplines that critically engages with the concept of belonging and the ways in which it is deployed and understood in academic discourses, with a view to examining the challenges and ambiguities embedded in the concept.

Submissions might address (but need not be limited to) the following themes:
- Structures and processes of belonging
- Moving past the belonging/not-belonging dichotomy
- Belonging beyond identity
- Technology, communication and belonging
- Scales of belonging, e.g., local, national, transnational
- Belonging and intersectionality
- Memory and belonging
- Place and belonging
- Mobility and belonging
- Agency and belonging
- Indigenous belonging
- Migrancy, transnationalism, and belonging
- Hybridity and belonging
- Language, culture and belonging

Submissions should be uploaded to www.newscholar.org.au by 14 August 2012.  Please see the New Scholar website for updated guidelines for authors.  Please address all inquiries (but not submissions) to Caitlin Nunn, Nadia Niaz, Karen Schamberger and Gillian Darcy at thebelongingproject@gmail.com.

7.  Postdoctoral Fellowships at the University of Melbourne
The McKenzie Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme has been established to attract outstanding recent doctoral graduates to the University of Melbourne, in areas of research priority for the university and its faculties, and in particular to recruit new researchers who have the potential to build and lead cross-disciplinary collaborative research activities inside and across faculties.  Applications are now open.  For details please go to http://www.research.unimelb.edu.au/rgc/grants/find/schemes/uom/mckenzie_fellowships.

8.  Senior Research Fellow/Principal Research Fellow position at the University of Melbourne
The ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotion seeks to appoint a Senior Research Fellow to a 4 or 5 year research appointment in one of its four research programs, “Shaping the Modern.”  Working with program convenor, Stephanie Trigg, the successful candidate will develop a multi-disciplinary research project or projects that extend the Centre’s research in the period 1100-1800 into the modern era, with a special emphasis on Australia’s relationswhip with its European emotional past.  Details are available at http://jobs.unimelb.edu.au/jobDetails.asp?sJobIDs=825263&sReferrer=home&lApplicationSubSourceID=&lWorkTypeID=&lLocationID=&sJobNo=0029496&lCategoryID=&sKeywords=0029496&lPayScaleID=&stp=AW&sLanguage=en.

9.  Patrick White exhibition at Mount Wilson 
In 2012, the Mt Wilson and Mt Irvine Historical Society will celebrate the centenary of Patrick White’s birth by holding a year-long exhibition at the Turkish Bath Museum at Mt Wilson.  Patrick White spent his formative years as a young child at Mt Wilson in the 1920s and 1930s; the exhibition will highlight the impact of both the Australian natural environment and the influence of working class and wealthy society individuals and families that were to strongly shape him for the remainder of his life, as an individual and as a writer of international acclaim.  More information is available at http://www.mtwilson.com.au/mt-wilsonmt-irvine-historical-society/patrick-white-exhibition.html.
