deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 1, 2020

From Ragnarok to Revelation, from the utopian proposals of Plato’s Republic to the dystopian vision of Huxley’s Brave New World, a prominent concern of human language and literature has always been to describe possible futures. Some of these visions of the future are cataclysmic, looking forward to a time when Heaven—or Mother Earth—will wipe the slate clean; others propose a more optimistic vision of progress. Recent films such as Interstellar or Tomorrowland have taken a middle way, suggesting that although humanity has recently fallen short of its promise, there still remains hope that we will be able to pull ourselves up by our own bootstraps.

As a flagship title for Sony’s Playstation console, Final Fantasy VII was one of the first high-profile games to blend cinematic narrative with deep/immersive gameplay.  Thus, the editors of Final Fantasy VII at 25, an upcoming title in McFarland's Studies in Gaming series, are seeking contributions to a collection which will examine the storytelling of the game, the many themes and motifs expressed, and how various mechanics all relate to the player experience.

Most second-hand bookstores have one or two shelves for books that have been categorized as “Conspiracy Theories.” Such books are deemed too inaccurate to count as “History,” too unacademic to qualify as “Sociology,” or too fringe to be shelved as “Politics.” The “Conspiracy Theories” shelf is a tangible reminder of conspiracism’s epistemological status as “stigmatized knowledge” (Barkun, 2003).

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

UC San Diego’s Department of Literature is excited to announce their second annual graduate conference. This year’s theme, “Movement,” embraces the complexities of the potential for, and results of, movement. The term “movement” has been at the center of aesthetics, literary history, and philosophy for centuries. From a movement like the Young Hegelians, that criticized the political establishment and capitalist modes of production, to the Aesthetic Movement, that created “art for art’s sake,” movements have shaped critical thinking in a variety of fields. In the social sciences, social, horizontal, vertical, and spatial mobility have been analyzed for decades.

W.D. Howells Society
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The William Dean Howells Society welcomes proposals for two sessions at the 31st annual conference of the ALA in San Diego, CA from May 21-24, 2020.

 

HOWELLS OUT WEST

Though born and raised in Ohio, William Dean Howells is often considered the prime shaper and protector of what Nancy Glazener terms the “northeastern urban bourgeoisie” because of his stewardship of the elite east coast literary magazines The Atlantic Monthly and Harper’s. Inspired by our transition from Boston back to the West Coast for ALA 2020, for this panel we seek presentations on Howells’s equally important relationship with the American West, broadly construed.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:
