The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott (1893-1963) for presentation at the American Literature Association's 31st Annual Conference in San Diego, CA (May 21-24, 2020). Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, memoir, poetry, young adult literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We are especially interested in papers that investigate the process of canonicity, the literary networks to which Scott belonged, or the role of disability in her career, but all topics will be considered.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 2, 2020

We invite proposals for monographs or edited volumes for our Series in Literary Studies.

Literary studies is one of the richest and most interdisciplinary fields of study, encompassing a wide array of valid approaches, from the historical, to the theoretical, to the experimental. Broadly speaking, works of literary scholarship aim to change or enhance the way we read texts by investigating their complexity.

We are particularly interested in books on English Literature, although we are open to proposals which examine any type of world literature.

The scope of the present call is broad. Possible topics include (non-comprehensive list):

Until not very long ago, support for the independence and self-determination of nations was an indication of a progressive politics and a generous spirit. Not only did Americans celebrate their own independence on the Fourth of July each year with fireworks and music, and parades. As late as the middle of the twentieth century, the independence of other national states, from Greece to India, Ethiopia and Algeria, was widely regarded as an expression of historical justice and redemption.

Speech, Law, Trauma: Indian contexts Call for chapters in an edited volume The ascendancy of right wing nationalism in India in contemporary times has witnessed heavy militarisation, clampdown on journalistic freedom, human rights violations, instances of communal and caste violence, etc. Cases of sexual harassment and #metoo in a world after  Jyoti Pandey's rape have also been increasing. It has been well established that the Indian polity is marked by the rise of totalitarian forms of government.

Technoaesthetics: Ways of Seeing the 21st Century (NEMLA 2020)

Northeast Modern Language Association

Monday, September 30, 2019

In a letter written to Jacques Derrida in 1982, Gilbert Simondon poses a question to the project of deconstruction: “Why not think about founding and perhaps even provisionally axiomatizing an aesthetico-technics or techno-aesthetics?” Aesthetic thought has for too long remained at the level of subjective contemplation, which effaces any substantive understanding of technology’s effects upon the larger cultural sphere. The technical and the aesthetic, Simondon contends, should instead be understood as a “continuous spectrum” of experience, as each are composed of a “set of sensations” that emerge as matter is transformed, whether by the artist, the engineer, the designer, or the machinist.

In the midst of the election of the Trump administration, the growing racial tensions that coalesced into the violent protests in Charlottesville, and the rising rates of hate crimes committed against black and brown individuals, there has been a slew of young adult novels published by writers of color that tackle the ways in which young people within these communities must simultaneously navigate the complexities of childhood while also confronting racism, xenophobia, homophobia, and police brutality.

"Autotheory" Special Issue of ASAP/Journal

updated:

ASAP/Journal: Association for the Study of the Arts of the Present
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 1, 2020

ASAP/Journal seeks critical and creative contributions for a guest-edited special issue on “autotheory.” Fusing self-representation with philosophy and critical theory, autotheory moves between the worlds of “theory” and “practice,” often exceeding disciplinary boundaries, genres, and forms. This special issue embarks on a rigorous investigation of the autotheoretical impulse as it moves across medial, disciplinary, and national borders from the 1960s to the present. In dialogue with scholars, artists, and activists, this issue will broach the central question: What are autotheory’s conditions of possibility, and what are the political, aesthetic, and cultural effects of this theoretical turn in contemporary cultural production?

Diversity in/and/or the Arts

FINAL CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Diversity, which in the US and UK had initially been associated with and largely confined to the areas of employment and college admissions, has recently taken center stage, most dramatically with the seating of the US House of Representatives on 2 January and the Golden Globes film awards 4 days later. Despite the gains, diversity remains a contentious issue even in an area associated with progressivism: the arts in general (the Golden Globes notwithstanding) and literature in particular. Case in point: Lionel Shriver’s article in the 9 June 2018 issue of The Spectator in which the US novelist attacked Penguin Random House UK’s newly announced diversity statement.
