General Call for Papers

SAMLA invites prospective conference participants to submit abstracts to our annual General Call for Papers. The General Call will be used to build programming from accepted abstracts that did not resonate with any of our currently published CFPs. 

Abstracts will be reviewed internally, and accepted abstracts will either be placed on an extant panel or combined with other General Call abstracts to create new sessions. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee acceptance and placement, though we will work earnestly and diligently to place all abstracts.

PAMLA 117th Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

From starting its own streaming service to producing live action recreations of its most successful animated films, Disney has had a fruitful year. Disney films are both a reflection and also a creator of social norms, and critical response has interpreted the intertextual heteroglossia of discourse between films and society to assess how Disney ideology is absorbed, reflected, rejected, or altered. This panel explores the discursive, literary, filmic, and historical dimensions of the Disney phenomenon in both the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Coalitional Feminisms Panel PAMLA

updated: 
Wednesday, April 24, 2019 - 10:47am
Pacific, Ancient, and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

In Gender Trouble, Judith Butler writes that the “value of coalitional politics is not to be underestimated, but the very form of coalition, of an emerging and unpredictable assemblage of positions, cannot be figured in advance.” Butler’s characterization of political coalitions as inherently unpredictable and imminently emergent introduces both the value and challenges of forming feminist-based political coalitions: a heterogeneous group working toward a particular vision of social justice may have access to a louder political voice, but that assemblage is also precarious, its strength dependent on the coalition’s ability to overcome challenges posed by institutional racism, homophobia, cissexism, and classism.

Writing in the Breaks: Black Rhetorics and Rupture

updated: 
Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 3:56pm
SAMLA--November 15-17 Atlanta, GA--DEADLINE EXTENDED
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2019

In theorizing the break in black radical aesthetics, Fred Moten suggests, "Words don't go there [in Cecil Taylor's Chinampas]. Is it only music, only sound that goes there? Perhaps these notes and phrases will have mapped the terrain and traversed (at least some of) the space between here and there" (In the Break, 42). Moten claims that black radical aesthetics enact a generative rupture, break, or cut that create space for black aesthetic practices. This panel will consider any theorization of rupture or the break in black expressive practices with a special consideration of papers that address the break between black musical and literary practices.

Update - Speculative Fiction – SAMLA – November 15-17, 2019

updated: 
Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 11:47am
Lisa Wenger Bro / Speculative Fiction Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 20, 2019

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under the category is that there is some “unrealistic” element, whether it’s magical, supernatural, or a futuristic/technological development: works that fall into the category stray from conventional realism in some way.   For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from China Miéville to Margaret Atwood to Philip K. Dick. This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more.

Most of us remember what scared us as children: the bumps in the night, the dark alleys, and the monsters, ghouls, and ghosts brimmed with the potential to terrify. The thrill of dodging the terror that waited in the shadows fuels many horror fanatics to return to the theatres, bookstands, and now podcasts to relive youthful feelings of dread. It should be no surprise, then, that youth horror media is pervasive. From Goosebumps and the upcoming release of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? and the CBBC’s Creeped Out, there is an abundance of media that introduces children to the horror genre.
