Interrogating Intersectionality in a Global Perspective, An International Symposium

Proposals are invited for a Symposium, "Interrogating Intersectionality in a Global Perspective" to be held at Liverpool Hope University (UK) on 21 June 2019.  The symposium seeks to interrogate the potential and limitations of Intersectional approaches within a global context.  It is part of an AHRC funded International Networking Project that seeks to scope the potential and limitations of intersectionality in relation to both theory and praxis. In keeping with this broad-based agenda, the organisers seek contributions from any discipline and welcome interdisciplinary approaches.

Proposed Special Session for MLA 2020 in Seattle (Jan. 9-12)

The upcoming 2020 MLA Conference is being held in Seattle, Jimi Hendrix's hometown, 50 years after his death in 1970.

To mark this meeting, we welcomes proposals about the significance of Hendrix and his music to cultural and literary studies, including how his legacy continues to infuse and inspire artists, writers, and scholars. We are especially interested in papers that tie his music to larger movements of black expression, such as blues traditions, black radical aesthetics, or the Black Arts Movement, as well as other innovative analyses inspired by affect theory and performance studies. 

Mapping Dissent: Frontiers in the Spatial Imaginary

Charles Brockden Brown Society Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 10, 2019

Since the arrival of the first European colonists on the North American continent, frontiers have served as powerful forces within the public imagination. Often characterized as lawless hinterlands, frontiers call boundaries into question and operate largely independently of,  yet in juxtaposition with, larger units--imperial, national, cultural, racial--in which they are classified. For this proposed panel to the Charles Brockden Brown Society Annual Conference in Lexington, Kentucky from October 3-5, 2019, we invite proposals exploring any facet of the utility of frontiers, or borderlands, to protest or revise social or cultural ideas from the colonial period to the present.
