 On Miracle Ground XX

          The International Lawrence Durrell Society invites proposals for papers to be presented at a July 2018 conference in downtown Chicago. In a year marking the centenary of Solzhenitsyn’s birth and the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Durrell’s satirical dystopia Tunc, ILDS welcomes papers reflecting on modernist and postmodern writers or artists who challenged the political and cultural ideologies of their time and place. Interrogating conceptions of exile, survival, and dissent, we will explore how the work of these past intellectual dissidents has shaped our critiques of twenty-first century society.

It has been ten years since the untimely death of American writer David Foster Wallace, who is best remembered for his gargantuan novel, Infinite Jest. This panel seeks papers that focus on any aspect of DFW’s life or work. Proposals might address how critical appreciation of Wallace has changed in the last decade, or they might chart new paths for the next decade of Wallace scholarship. Special preference will be given to proposals that are related to this year’s conference theme of socio-political activism, which you can read more about on the SAMLA website.

Too often, especially in the United States today, religion is seen as the enemy of socio-political progress and change. But even a cursory glance at U.S. history — the Underground Railroad, the Civil Rights Movement, the Sanctuary Movement — attests to the role religion and religious individuals have played in resistance movements. This panel seeks papers that consider the influence of religion on political activism and protest movements — and not only in America, but globally.

I am editing the collection "Doing Vegan Studies," which is under contract for publication in the “Cultural Ecologies of Food in the 21st Century” series published by the University of Nevada Press and slated for publication in 2018. I have a great set of contributors and essays, but due to a contributor being unable to complete an essay, I’ve lost a valuable contribution on veganism and race. I am hoping to solicit an essay that addresses this topic in a compelling and original way. Potential topics include – but are not limited to:

Veganism as perceived white identity category

Problematic comparisons between human slavery and the enslavement of animals

Veganism and Black Lives Matter

Veganism as postcolonial strategy
