2020 marks the tenth anniversary of Michelle Alexander’s groundbreaking work, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, which brought unprecedented attention to the ongoing discrimination present in the United States’ criminal justice system and its many devastating effects. Numerous studies have also documented the ways in which children and young adults are impacted by the criminal justice system, whether they are in it themselves, have a family member in it, or are living with the expectation of entering it in the future.

Distance no longer impedes a college or university education; however, when institutions offer little or no training, scant support for faculty, poor course design, and little integration with campus life, they stymie rigorous programs. This collection of essays will interest practitioners of online teaching, design, and administration of successful online programs. If you are interested in submitting a chapter, please access the chapter proposal form on the Cambridge Scholars Publishing website and submit your completed form to admin@cambridgescholars.com.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 31, 2020

In keeping with this year’s MMLA conference theme of “Cultures of Collectivity”, this panel solicits propositions that reflect on the many ways in which the individual and the collective were conceived in pre-revolutionary society. Rather than viewing the individual and the collective as being separate facets of social existence, papers that look at the liminal movement between subjective experience and the larger political body will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:

15th Annual Conference of the German Society for Comics Studies (ComFor) | 8 to 10 October 2020 | Online

ComFor’s 15th annual conference aims to intensify a dialogue between the various disciplinary approaches to the medium of comics and related popular narrative images (including manga, graphic novels or cartoons) by focusing on the concept of medial, mediated, and mediating agency. Building on perspectives from actor-network theory and subsequent approaches to a possible actor-media theory, the conference aims to reconstruct the complexities of distributed agency within historical and contemporary cultures of comics.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 5, 2020

The issue intends to bring to the fore the writings of women from colonial and postcolonial era of South Asia, particularly exploring how these women writers addresses the issues of violence, speculating identity and belongingness while defying stereotypes in primarily male literary traditions as a focal point. Moreover, the proposed issue considers how different literary genres ranging from novels, poetry, novellas, short stories, memoirs to autobiographies by South Asian women writers present an exclusive and inimitable insight into varied understandings of pre-constructed gender roles and relations in the context of south Asian society and culture.

From Natalie Zemon Davis in The Return of Martin Guerre and Alain Corbin in Life of an Unknown to Kiera Lindsey in The Convict’s Daughter and John Glavin in After Dickens: Reading, Adaptation, and Performance, a small number of scholars have proposed new ways of reading the past and writing social and cultural history, microhistory, biography, and literary criticism. In the final chapter of Victorian Honeymoons: Journeys to the Conjugal, the literary critic Helena Michie juxtaposes two modes of writing: a painstakingly annotated excerpt from a nineteenth-century woman’s diary and a fictional recreation of a moment in that woman’s life based on the record of events and experiences.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented new challenges for the higher education community, including those working with undergraduate researchers. Research teams have responded to the pandemic in some exciting and creative ways that have the potential to benefit all engaged in undergraduate research during disruptive events such as pandemics, earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires, and tornadoes.

Original research articles (2,000–3,500 words) and vignettes (300 words) are invited for Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) that discuss how individuals, disciplines, departments, campuses, and communities have adapted during these events.  Topics and questions of interest include the following:
