Inscripción Actividad

La actividad propuesta responde al interés interdisciplinar sobre el estudio de la temporalidad queer en productos culturales contemporáneos como son la literatura, el cine y los videojuegos. La justificación académica de este congreso viene motivada por la obra de académicos como Elizabeth Freeman (2010), Annamarie Jagose (2012), Judith Halberstam (2003) o Ann Cvektovich (2004). La obra estos y otros académicos pone de relieve la relevancia y la demanda social e investigadora para la creación de espacios o foros de discusión que permitan profundizar en el estudio de la temporalidad queer.
Teniendo en cuenta la interdisciplinaridad del tema de estudio, el congreso será de interés para académicos y estudiantes de ramas de conocimiento vinculadas, especialmente, a Arte y Humanidades, incluyendo Historia, Filosofía y Geografía; Filología y Lingüística; e Historia del Arte y la Expresión Artística. Por lo tanto, el congreso será de interés a números estudiantes de la Universidad de Murcia que cursen planes de estudios dentro de estas ramas. A su vez, al tratarse de un evento internacional, el congreso ofrece una oportunidad para que alumnos y profesores de la Universidad de Murcia intercambien conocimientos con académicos dentro y fuera de España.
Investigadores (PDI, miembros de equipos de proyectos y equipos de investigación, estudiantes de doctorado y máster). Autores y desarrolladores en áreas vinculadas a la temática del proyecto.

Descripción:

Theme

While the study of space has been part of the Queer Studies agenda for a very long time, time has been a more recent addition. This International Conference sees the study of time as being central to the understanding of identity configurations. Studying time as a producer and reproducer of identities can be approached as the unearthing of past events, the imagining of other futures, or as the exploration of time as a formal factor that shapes cultural texts. While conceptions of time as something linear, stable, singular, and unequivocal favor existing discourses about equally unequivocal identities, approaches to time as being defined by multiple rhythms, interruptions and uncertainties allow for other identities and cultural / social practices to come to life in time or through specific representations of time.  

We invite scholars from a variety of backgrounds (Cinema, Cultural, Game, and Literary Studies) to think about time and its impact on processes of queer world-making through its relation with memory, futurities, discontinuities, and expanded approaches to everydayness. Submissions from creators -writers, poets, filmmakers, and game designers- exploring their texts in relation to the themes of the conference will also be considered.

Some of the topics this conference is interested in exploring are:

-Identities represented through fragmentation and temporal rootlessness; temporal notions of ‘otherness’.

-Narrative and/or formal uses of synchronicity, serendipity, and nonlinearity.

-Temporal rhizomes; approaches to time as being multiple and multidirectional.

-Fluid time(s), fluid identity(ies).

-Instances of genre/identity bending through time.

-Human, transhuman, post-human, and non-human relations with, in, and through time: 4th Industrial Revolution, Anthropocene, object-oriented studies of time vs. ‘fleshy’ temporalities, cyberpunk and non-Western futurisms.

-Failure, interruption, fragmentation, repetition, loss, and loops: Non-linearities and temporal dead-ends.

-Medium-dependent representations of time and their impact on identity production.

-Expanded visions of everydayness.

-Time and “telling”: points of view and narration, narrated/narrative times, personal time, and time as form.

-Times that are (not); times that were (not); times that will (not) be; times we wish (never) existed: reconstructions of hidden pasts, utopia, dystopia, futurism, and trauma.

-Myth and fantasy as identity engagements through time.

-When time ends: catastrophes, eco-crises, and apocalypses.

Venue

In view of the current pandemic, this conference will be held fully online. Accepted proposals will be placed in panels formed according to similar themes, approaches, and interests. All panels will consist of four 15-minute-long live interventions followed by 20 minutes of Q&A for the four panelists. Each panel will have its own Zoom session for panelists and audience members to join. Panelists will not be able to participate in the conference by submitting pre-recorded videos of their papers.
