“MeToo” was originally phrased/used as a slogan by Tarana Burke in 2006 to raise awareness against sexual violence against women. However, it wasn’t until October 15, 2017 that the slogan/phrase/hashtag became known globally. In the aftermath of the Weinstein affair Millano tweeted “If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted write ‘me too’ as a reply to this tweet.“ In less than 24 hours tens of thousands of people replied to her tweet.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

The Canadian Review of American Studies is seeking papers for a special issue on the work of French psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan and extensions of this work. The editors are interested in papers that might address the reception of Lacanian theory and clinical practice in North America. How has Lacan been taken up across the transatlantic between North America and Europe? Further, what is the state of Lacanian theory and psychoanalysis today in relation to mental health? How might Lacanian psychoanalysis speak to the current North American state of affairs? We are broadly interested in papers that explore psychoanalytic approaches at the intersection of aesthetics, poltics, ethics, history, gender studies or clinical work.

Perseverance builds character.

How does perseverance come about? By rising through a struggle, whether it is a provoked or unprovoked event that questions one’s ability to endure and survive a hardship. It is through one’s suffering and survival of such hardships in life -whether physical or mental - that one is able to build upon their character, thus leading to hope.

We are able to see these modes of struggle and perseverance in various facets from ethnicity, gender, and politics, to name a few, and we would like to hear, learn, and share them in our publication.

Fifty years from Barth’s own death and one-hundred years from the publication of the Römerbrief, the conference examines how fresh encounters with Karl Barth’s dogmatic theology and biblical exegesis might stimulate, inform, shape, and challenge contemporary reflection on the range of eschatological themes in Christian theology.

Theology of Marilynne Robinson in a Postsecular Age

American Literature Association (Boston; May 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.

Ecologies

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

Conference Theme

In 2005, Jenny Rice suggested that we might move away from notions of rhetorical discourse as situated in a fixed place and time, with a specific aim and audience, towards an ecological view of rhetoric, where circulating texts transform rhetors, audiences, spaces, and events. Like biological ecologies, rhetorical ecologies are fluid rather than fixed, permeable rather than bounded. The Clemson University English Department invites graduate students from all disciplines to join us as we explore ecologies at the 2019 Margins Conference.

Edited Essay Collection (book).

Much has been said about the state and failure of Black relationships in North America. Books like “Is Marriage for White people” by Ralph Richard Banks, gain traction by highlighting that Black women are three times as likely to remain single as white women. Research has shown that absent fathers produce a cultural cycle of parental absenteeism for Black men and women, and the repetitive traits that lead to divorce are environmental rather than genetic. Bottom-line, there are countless barriers and hurdles stacked against black relationships. Many couples struggle with the outside pressures that racism and social discrimination present.

Transcendentalism:  Men and Women Conversing

In a collaborative call from the Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Margaret Fuller and Louisa May Alcott Societies, we invite proposals for papers to be presented at the next Thoreau Gathering in Concord, MA (July 11-14, 2019) on dialogues between men and women of  the Transcendentalist movement.   When Emerson looked back at Transcendentalism, in “Historic Notes of Life and Letters in New England,” he recalled men and women who read adventurously, became friends, formed a club for conversation, and launched  a magazine.  They were talkers as well as solitaries.  Across the apparent divide of gender, what did they have to talk about?
