Session proposals due by new extended deadline, Friday, May 8, 2020, at cfplist.com/nemla. For more information, please visit buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/session or email email@example.com. NeMLA's 52nd Annual Convention is slated to take place March 11 to 14, 2021, and we hope that by then we will all be able to participate in our friendly convention in beautiful Philadelphia, the "Birthplace of America," steps from Independence Hall. Circumstances permitting, important work awaits us in re-shaping the humanities for ourselves, our constituents, and our broader communities.
Identity and Liminality in African American Literature
This panel seeks presentations about the proclivity of African American racial space. That is, this panel is interested in when and where conceptions of spatial race formalities are conducted. We can think of “space” as time, place, and movement—the constant liminal changing of identities. This panel invites abstracts, of no more than 250 words, for presentations on African American literature at the Midwest Modern Language Association conference. Some topics might include:
The Henry James Society
Midwest Modern Language Association
EXTENDED DEADLINE: MAY 31, 2020
Collecting, Curating, Editing, Collaborating: How to Make an Author Today!
Guy Debord examined the spectacle through the Marxist lens and discerned that the spectacle draws the public gaze through a collection of images that contain signs that feed on and feed the socially dominant ideology. In other words, spectacles perpetuate the images the ruling class produces to subjugate and degrade. Thus, spectacles are discourses about the ruling class—"a self-portrait of power” (Debord, Society of the Spectacle). A scandal is a spectacle that violates the social norms of the ruling class, even as it draws the public gaze through sensationalizing the social transgression.

The editors of this proposed journal special issue seek papers on the following topic:
Performance, Religion, and Spirituality
Call for Papers, vol 3. no 1
With a special section on ‘Religious Life in the Time of COVID-19’
We invite authors to submit articles for the upcoming issue of Performance, Religion and Spirituality. We seek scholarly articles and reviews of performances and books, as well as contributions to our “Forum” section, which highlights practical work and profiles artists.
It has often been observed that Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream is a metaliterary and metadramatic play. It presents not only the rough course of true love but also the glories and failures of the poetic imagination and of theatrical illusion, most obviously so in connection with the play within the play performed by Bottom and his fellows. What has less often been pointed out is the argument about genre(s) that is conducted in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Peter Quince refers to the play within the play as a “most lamentable comedy” (1.2.11); the list of entertainments offered to Theseus describes it as “tragical mirth” (5.1.57).
The second annual Popular Culture and Pedagogy Conference (http://popularcultureandpedagogy.org) will take place on July 15th, 2020.
The theme of the conference will be:
Using Popular Culture in Online and Emergency Remote Teaching
The conference will be dedicated to current issues of linguistics, languages, dialects, literature and translation.
Academics and university lecturers are cordially invited to present their research regarding current issues of linguistics, languages, dialects, literature and translation in English or Arabic.
The selective full papers of the conference will be published as the book of conference and also will be indexed in CIVILICA (however, the book of abstracts will be published too).
Optional Services for Participants (If they wish to use)
I am editing the Routledge Handbook of Vegan Studies, which is currently under contract with the press. Handbooks are typically 30-35 chapters, with chapters being roughly 6000 words (footnotes and works cited inclusive). They aim to provide a cutting edge, comprehensive assessment of the field and will be an essential reference title and benchmark publication for the subject.
Due to a late withdrawal by a contributor, I am seeking proposals for a final needed chapter examining race and veganism that reflects knowledge of the field of Vegan Studies, Critical Race Studies, and that builds on extant work in these disciplines. The essay should provide a broad overview of the issues and tensions that have shaped the discourse on veganism and race.

NB: We are acutely aware that this CFP coincides with extremely uncertain times re COVID-19. Of course, it is currently unknown when gatherings of people will be able to resume as normal. We have every intention of holding this event in October, but first and foremost must prioritise the safety of our attendees. If necessary, we will either postpone the conference or host it virtually.
In an increasingly precarious and complicated political, social, and cultural landscape—in academia, in activist spaces, and in everyday life—feminist scholars often find themselves at a crossroad between their professional obligations and their desire to make both their teaching and writing continually relevant to a larger public. Feminist scholars are uniquely positioned to advance public knowledge and help maintain a vibrant cultural awareness of issues affecting women and girls, racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, indigenous peoples, LGBTQAI individuals, and others adversely affected by the current political climate both in the U.S. and transnationally.
Published at the height of the imperial enterprise, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) has a long and intricate backstory. It is, in fact, the result of centuries of British discovery of and disappointment with the world. One by one, naturalists, amateur anthropologists, merchants, soldiers, diplomats or missionaries from the British Isles discovered the world for the armchair travelers at home and built up their self-esteem by disfiguring countries and regions in writings, paintings, and lectures at the Royal Geographical Society.

The Victorian period is generally thought of as an age where science and its discoveries led to a shift from the religious to a scientific explanation of the natural world. Obviously at the centre of this whole shift was Charles Darwin, his powerful inferences and the delayed publication of The Origin of Species, as he feared disturbing established religious and social practices. And the crises of faith it did instill affected an entire generation. However much we wish to adhere to this scientific aspect of the Victorian period, one cannot ignore the fact that the age also saw a proliferation of the interest and belief in the supernatural, the occult, in ghost stories, séances et al.

The National institute of Technology, Silchar is organizing a symposium on ''Digital Expressions of the Self'' during 7-8 Dec 2020. We are interested in how people experiment with creative expressions of the self. Constructing the self in the digital sphere may involve processes of experimentation that in turn allow one to experience the self in multiple ways. This is mediated of course by the apparatus of the digital-codes and algorithms. We are interested in the nuances of these processes and the aesthetics of the expressions. The deadline for abstract submission is 22 May. Details available here:

Digital technologies have in the last decade profoundly changed China’s cultural landscape. Messaging apps such as WeChat and Chinese-language podcasts have become important platforms for critical debate, whilst the rising popularity of online platforms for fiction writing, video sharing, shopping, movie ratings and gaming reflect new practices of media consumption and reception. State surveillance and censorship play an important role in China’s wired culture, but web-based cultural activities do not only take place in the shadows of a repressive state but also reflect profound social and cultural transformations, technological developments as well as innovative engagements with traditional aesthetics.
CALL FOR PAPERS
We look forward to innovative articles on documentary and / or staged photography. Pictures science is an interdisciplinary magazine that is open to different approaches.
