The Hemispheric Americas Lecture Series at Penn State invites proposals for a two-day interdisciplinary graduate student symposium on the topic of "Race in the Americas." Some central questions we hope to grapple with include: How do we define and conceptualize race across the Americas? How do gender and sexuality complicate our notions of race? How do national, regional, local, and global perspectives add another layer of problematization in our understandings of race? How does race politically intervene in literary, artistic, and other cultural productions? What kinds of practices—medical, judicial, and otherwise—have contributed to shaping the senses (sight, sound, etc.) of bodies in this region?
Date: February 20th, 2015

We are now forming panels for presentations of American poetry and poetics criticism at our 2016 conference. There are no limits in regard to historical period, topic, or theme, and we welcome panel proposals, especially those that include panelists from multiple institutions. Acceptances will ultimately depend on the availability of compatible presentations to form coherent panels.
I am seeking manuscripts to complete an edited collection, _Toward an Ecosomatic Paradigm: Disability and the Environment in American Literature_, which is focused on the intersection between disability studies and literary ecology. The collection is currently under contract with Lexington Press, and I am looking to add a chapter or two that explores the collection's theme with a particular focus on twentieth-century American literature.
Call for Papers
We invite essays for an upcoming collection that utilize transnational approaches to theorize city space. Accepted essays will offer literary and cultural analyses that encourage us to think of cities, in all of their complexity, as sites of transnational, transactional engagement. In taking this approach, we hope to demonstrate how cities, which are increasingly extending and challenging boundaries of place, provide sites for complicating our understandings of citizenship, nationality, and the nation.
