SLCA: "Positions" October 15-17, 2015 (New Orleans)

updated: 
Monday, February 23, 2015 - 12:42pm
Society for Comparative Literature and the Arts (SCLA)

Taken on its own, "positions" appears an innocuous and static term, suggesting a location, a posture, a place, a job or status. And yet, positioning is always implicit in the critical endeavor, evident not only in the placement of signifiers within a text, but within constellations of texts that we read comparatively. One could further argue that the various acts of positioning and the positions we hold manifest themselves in every facet of human interaction: political, rhetorical, theoretical, ideological, sexual, psychological, cultural and so on.

Haunting in Short Fiction and Its Adaptations: 20-21 November 2015, University of Angers, France

Monday, February 23, 2015 - 12:41pm
European Network for Short Fiction Research (ENSFR) (with University of Angers, Edge Hill University, University of Leuven, University of Le Mans, University of Nantes)

There is a long tradition of haunting in short fiction, often appearing in the form of ghost stories, folk tales, fairy tales, and legends. Short narrative indeed appears to embrace the supernatural. Elizabeth Bowen explains, for example, in the preface to A Day in the Dark and Other Stories that while she uses "the supernatural" in her short stories, she considers it "unethical' to do so in a novel.

Current doctoral students are especially encouraged to submit proposals for New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism, though all proposals will be considered for both books.

PAMLA 2015--Dr. Markus Bohlmann

"Temporalities and Childhood" is a panel at the upcoming PAMLA 2015 conference, November 6-8, 2015, in Portland, USA.

The conference theme is "time and literature," and the panel will explore the various temporalities at play within the binary realms of childhood and adulthood with the aim of rethinking the teleology of 'growing up' from a temporal perspective.
