Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

Have you taught a place-based course in literature, history, American studies, or the humanities more generally? Have you focused on place in courses on Latinx, African American, Native American, or queer studies? What design choices did you make when creating your syllabus? If you were to redesign the documents for this course, what would you change?

I invite participants for a poster session in document design for place-based studies to take place at the 49th annual symposium of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature (SSML) in East Lansing, Michigan, on May 16-18, 2019.

The Matter of the Elgin Marbles: Romantic Materiality

The Parthenon Sculptures have long been a source of disparagement and fascination, especially since their arrival in London as early as 1803. Prior to that year, Thomas Bruce, seventh Earl of Elgin, procured a collection now housed in the British Museum as the Elgin Marbles, intensifying a transformation in which materiality of the marbles has been infused with seemingly vital force through an after-life of aesthetic representation. Whether through drawings, paintings, or poetry, the Elgin Marbles as objects have animated their subjects—pensive in gaze—to motivate, in effect, proliferation through aesthetic production.

[Hong Kong Studies Symposium] The Neighbourhood—Call for Abstracts While the word “community” is more often than not suffused with a benevolent glow, connoting the virtues purportedly associated with groups of people—shared values and heritage, constancy and solidarity—“neighbourhood” is a term that has a more ambiguous, even troublesome, valency. Neighbourhoods, depending on one’s point of view, can be good or bad, welcoming or hostile, safe or dangerous, dull or vibrant.

An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference

Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019

This inclusive interdisciplinary conference seeks to investigate and explore the enduring influence and imagery of monsters and the monstrous on human culture throughout history. In particular, the project will have a dual focus with the intention of examining specific ‘monsters’ as well as assessing the role, function and consequences of persons, actions or events identified as ‘monstrous’. The history and contemporary cultural influences of monsters and monstrous metaphors will also be examined with a view to forming a selective publication to engender further collaboration and discussion.

Once Upon a Time There Was a Virus....: Storytelling, Health and Illness
Saturday 31st August - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

Throughout history, people have felt a need to tell each other stories about the ordinary as well as the surprising experiences of being alive, particularly in relation to health, well-being, illness, disease and death. Telling stories was – and still is – a way of recording and grappling with the origins, causes and prevention of illnesses and disease that surrounded them in everyday life.

Call for Articles: Memory Studies and Latinidad

updated:

Journal of Latino-Latin American Studies (JOLLAS)

Friday, February 15, 2019

How does latinidad rely on personal memory? ¿Cómo es el concepto de « latinidad » a la vez un producto de memoria cultural? ¿Qué pasa cuando olvidamos? Do we learn latinidad from lessons that value the truths of memory? Across specialties of the disciplines and in a variety methods, recent scholarship is addressing the distance between the historical and the remembered. The authority of history measured against the validity of memory (both individual and collective) reveals that how we remember has become as important as what we remember.

Inspired by Teresia Teaiwa’s definition of “militourism” as a “phenomenon by which a military or paramilitary force ensures the running of a tourist industry, and that same tourist industry masks the military force behind it,” this panel seeks to consider practices of “militourism” in a long historical context by soliciting papers with critical approaches to militarization, travel, and tourism from antiquity to the present day. We invite papers that engage questions of conquest, colonization, and empire; battlefield/memorial tourism; memoirs by soldiers, soldiers’ wives, and support staff; the intersections of military and tourist industries.
