FRANKISSTEIN by Jeanette Winterson
THE TESTAMENTS by Margaret Atwood
THE SECRET COMMONWEALTH by Philip Pullman
Traditionally attributed to King Solomon and defined by Rabbi Akiva as the “Holy of Holies” among the sacred scriptures (Mishnah Yadayim 3:5), the Song of Songs is one of the most fascinating and controversial Biblical books. Fervently read and carefully explained, celebrated as a key to the supreme mystery of the union between God and men, the Song of Songs, the primary source for the Christian pervasive metaphor of the sacred marriage and eros, was a text crucial not only to the Middle Ages, but also to the Renaissance period. This ambivalent book, which combined a sensual celebration of love with a well-established tradition of allegorical interpretation, held a particular appeal for poets.

Race is not only about identity or skin colour. Capitalism has been racialized from its origins, and has produced a modern world system that derives economic value from the commodification of racial identities through slavery, imperialism, and genocide. Furthermore, racial capitalism has been accompanied by biopolitical technologies that regulate sexuality and enforce heteronormativity making it also a gendered process.
SSAWW will sponsor two panels at the 2020 American Literature Association Conference, one on “Toni Morrison and Her Legacy” and one on “Women’s Rights, Women’s Suffrage.”
“Toni Morrison and Her Legacy”
The profound loss of a defining voice of American women’s writing demands our attention as we consider the work of women writers of the past and present. We invite papers which engage with Morrison’s writing, her work in relation to other women writers, and her legacy as a defining figure in American literature.

Flow Volume 26 Special Issue: “Streaming Wars and Television’s Next Juncture”
As the new decade dawns, Disney, Apple, WarnerMedia, and NBCUniversal have launched (or will soon launch) their own streaming platforms. These entrants prove once again that the ecology of television and digital content is one that continuously shifts, raising the question: Is a streaming war in full swing? With legacy media companies and major technology companies entering the ring, has the streaming arena now become too crowded? And how will consumers, amidst ever-multiplying, well-funded platforms vying for their attention, alter and/or reinforce their viewership and subscription consumer habits?

Blurring distinctions between the morally edifying, instructive, and perverse, P.T. Barnum’s American Museum at the corner of Broadway and Ann Street in New York was central to the emerging culture of popular entertainment in the 1840s-1860s. Les Harrison estimates that by 1865, forty-one million visitors attended P.T. Barnum’s American Museum in New York: nearly six million more than the total population of the United States at the conclusion of the Civil War.

Exploring Alterity: Self, Identity and the Social
Contemporary politics is rife with questions of identity, making one implicitly familiar with notions of “alterity.” Alterity can be defined as “otherness” or “being otherwise” and at times, is used simply to mean “difference.” This conference intends to unpack varied notions of "alterity" as a conceptual category, broadly understood as "difference" or "variation" within disciplines such as Sociology, Philosophy, Linguistics, Psychology, Literature, and Economics.

The topic of the conference invites contributors to reflect on the significance of ECOlogy as key concern in the United States of America and around the world today. Some of the questions the conference hopes to discuss are: have decision makers and communities developed effective strategies of dealing with climate change and the ECOlogical crises of this century, has American culture addressed the problems that threaten the ECOsystem responsibly and equitably, does ECOcriticism help in raising environmental awareness when applied to American cultural productions.
