Butler Companion

 

Editors Gregory J. Hampton (Howard University) and Kendra R. Parker (Hope College) are seeking submissions for The Bloomsbury Companion to Octavia E. Butler. This book will be a collection of literary criticism and theory by an international range of contemporary scholars exploring major themes across the full span of Octavia Butler’s writing.  

 

We welcome essays that survey past and current scholarship on Butler; however, we are most interested in work that will point forward to new directions and new agendas in Butler scholarship on both domestic and international levels.

Los Angeles: Grounds for protest

 

For writers and artists such as David Hockney, Christopher Isherwood, John Rechy, Paul Monette and Gore Vidal, Los Angeles provided the literary backdrop for gay communion and protest. As part of the upcoming EBAAS conference in London in April 2018 (https://www.kcl.ac.uk/artshums/depts/history/eventrecords/2017-18/EBAAS-...), we are recruiting papers for a panel session exploring how and why Los Angeles has represented such a crucial stage for dissent for homosexual writers over the course of the twentieth century.

The World of Trump / Trump and the World

Pierre Guerlain (Université Paris-Nanterre) et Raphaël Ricaud (Université
Paul Valéry-Montpellier 3)

Trumpland isn’t just hell for Muslims, Hispanics, women, and other
vulnerable populations; it is hell for anyone trying to make sense of what
is going on. It is a topsy-turvy world, a world turned upside down, a
world where absurdity reigns .
