It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.
Our first conference on racism, nationalism and xenophobia took place in March 2016. The second adition was held in June 2017. We hosted over 80 scholars representing universities and research institutions from all over the world.
“Collection Cultures”: Midwest Modern Language Association Convention. Milwaukee, Wisconsin, November 5-8. The MMLA’s permanent section on American Literature After 1870 invites papers which, building on the conference theme, examine the topic of “cultures of collectivity” in American novels, poetry, and/or other kinds of texts, artwork, or cultural endeavors. Particularly invited are papers which explore cultures of collectors and collections.
Political protest has long been central to literary and cinematic histories from ideological and artistic manifestos to political pamphlets to satirical novels and realist cinema. They remain powerful vehicles for stimulating public debate, issuing calls to action, speaking truth to power, and heightening awareness of social ills. Despite censorship, marketplace economics, and national politics, literature, film, and numerous other modes of cultural / aesthetic production continue to play an important role not only as agents of social critique but also as agents of social change.
The International Virginia Woolf Society is pleased to host its twenty-first consecutive panel at the University of Louisville’s Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, scheduled for February 18-21, 2021.

Previous IVWS panels have met with great enthusiasm at Louisville, and we look forward to another successful session.

Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative. They can be festive, merry, and joyous in their celebrations, or (also simultaneously) sombre, solemn, and reflective in their commemorations. They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.
The Fan, Fandoms, and Celebrity Studies area encourages submissions that focus on interrogating the ideas and the ideals of fans and fandoms, and why we idolize celebrities. We welcome submissions from all theoretical and philosophical perspectives. We are open to submissions in any area of fan and celebrity studies including but not limited to:

Teaching Food in LiteratureOverview
Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. This special panel session invites papers that explore any aspect of military service in literature, including those that reflect the conference theme of “City of God, City of Destruction.” Outside the trauma of military existence is the rich sense of community that exists in the brotherhood of service to one’s country. Military bases are cities unto their own. They exist as denizens of destruction. This session invites papers that explore the many facets of military experience exhibited in literature, theater, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans.
CALL FOR PAPERS
MANUFACTURING THE PAST
Two broadly anthropocene concerns—the ‘human’ condition along with the condition of this human planet, Earth—bear on all discursive practices central to contemporary areas of research in humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Both these concerns reconfigure ways in which humans have come to make sense of themselves and of the world which they share with other forms of life. The anthropocene—ramifications of Cartesian vision of human subject, the giver of meaning, that ultimately subdues all nature and co-existing life-forms—however is challenged by a posthuman turn in the latter half of 20th Century that trenchantly undercuts the foundations of humanism catapulting from the set boundaries established by the ideal of Enlightenment.
Unedited / Under-edited Renaissance Texts
Renaissance English Text Society Panel
SCSC, Baltimore, October 29 – November 1, 2020
Abstracts are invited for the Renaissance English Text Society panel at the Sixteenth Century Society and Conference in Baltimore, 29 October - 1 November 2020. Twenty-minute papers should focus on some aspect of unedited or under-edited texts derived from manuscript and/or print witnesses written in English during the sixteenth century or first half of the seventeenth. Papers may address:
Abstracts are sought for a peer-reviewed collection of philosophical essays related to the Naughty Dog action-adventure video game series Uncharted (2007-2017). The essays should refer to the games that are considered the canon of the series: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. As the production of the movie adaptation of the game has been once again put on hold, and it seems that Naughty Dog will not develop new entries in the series in the foreseeable future, a book of essays seems rather timely.
Calls for Book Chapters: The Hamilton Phenomenon
Vernon Press invites chapter proposals for the volume: The Hamilton Phenomenon edited by Chloe Northrop (Tarrant County College).
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.
Submission due date: July 15, 2020 by email
Coeditors: Ashley Currier, Gergana Ivanova, and Sunnie Rucker-Chang

Bodies at the Bottom of the Well:
Critical and Creative Approaches to Medical Racism in the U.S.
Kate Kelley, PhD, University of Missouri Columbia, Department of Religious Studies
Kaleea Lewis, PhD, University of Missouri Columbia, Department of Public Health
The global lockdown has made us confined to our primeval cave-like shelter of home. The postgobal earth is in suspended condition, as if it needs some time for hibernation. In the face of increasing number of death, we all are seeking solutions, exploring options and thinking of new patterns of life. Surely the world will change permanently after this and if we are fortunate enough to see the post-Corona world, we will reminisce about our pre-Corona days. In between, during the uncertain lockdown period, we expect humankind to respond to the pandemic in creative ways.
We are seeking submission of creative works for a Special Collection to be created from the submitted works in Continuous Publication mode.
David Ramírez Plascencia (University of Guadalajara) and Barbara Carvalho Gurgel (UMass Dartmouth) invite you to send full chapters for the edited collections The Politics of Technology in Latin America Vol. 1 and Vol. 2., which will be submitted to Routledge’s Series, Emerging Technologies, Ethics and International Affairs. The editorial has already accepted the project and it is under contract, we are looking for additional works to complete both volumes. Chapters related with the following topics are particularly welcome:
We are currently accepting submissions for the Interdisciplinary studies panel at South Central Modern Language Association's 2020 conference. We encourage graduate students at the MA and PhD level to submit as well. There is no theme this year for the conference or the panel. A variety of approaches and topics may be submitted for this panel. Last year's topics included media analysis; gender studies and drama; and business and literature.
SCMLA will be held in Houston in October, 8-10. Details can be found at https://www.southcentralmla.org/conference/
The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2020 conference theme is “Cultures of Collectivity.” The conference will take place November 5-8 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The Writing Across the Curriculum permanent session will explore this theme by considering how writing pedagogy can encourage students to make connections between their sense of self and the community at large. Academia is rarely limited to the space of the classroom. Often lines between the individual student, the university space, and the local community blur to facilitate a deeper engagement with learning.
Topics might include, but are not limited to:
* Submission deadline extension 04/19/2020 *
* One of the panels will focus on the funding landscape for narrative analysis*
