ACLA 2019-The Story of Remembrance: The Future of Memory and Memories of the Future (Washington DC, 3/7-3/10, 2019)

The American Comparative Literature Association's 2019 Annual Meeting
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

Following the success of its previous ACLA seminar “The Story of Memory: Remembering, Forgetting, and Unreliable Narrators” held in March 2018, this seminar invites paper proposals to discuss how memory is represented and imagined diversely in the works of literature, art, and film from different cultural contexts. Living in an age saturated with memory and forgetting, we see the protagonists unsettled by their lost memory in films and novels: Memento (2000), The Bourne Identity (2002), Remainder (2005), The Amnesiac (2007), Amnesia (2014), The Girl On the Train (2015), The Buried Giant (2015), etc.. These amnesic protagonists, haunted by déjà vu they can never make sense of, often experience trauma and violence.

The aim of this seminar is to bring together new theoretical perspectives on the border.  How might contemporary events have introduced new crossings, flows and frictions, realignments and ruptures that invite rethinking of the concept of a border?  All approaches welcome.

One Writer’s Beginnings Reconsidered

2019 marks the 35th anniversary of Eudora Welty’s memoir One Writer’s Beginnings (Harvard UP, 1984). Loved and admired by a diverse readership, this book centers on the circumstances that sparked Welty's passion to become a writer. Originating from her presentations as inaugural speaker in Harvard’s Massey Lectures in American Studies (then the "Lectures in the History of American Civilization” ), the book chapters are based on her three lectures --“Listening,” “Learning to See,” and “Finding a Voice” --and they focus on Welty’s childhood and family life in Jackson, Mississippi.

Eudora Welty Society Call for Papers

In 1944, Eudora Welty remarked “if you click your camera at something, people from nowhere run up and ask ‘Why did you take that?’”

The motivational impulse, artistic composition, cultural context, and sociological importance of Welty’s photographs have all received scholarly attention since the 1971 first publication of her photobook One Time, One Place. Our 2019 ALA panel invites further new work on Welty’s photography.  Proposals may include the relation of her photography to biography, literature, art history, to photographic technique, genre, and history, as well as to such topics as memory, location, and racial representation.

Disability before disability in the medieval Icelandic sagas (ICMS, Kalamazoo 2019)

updated: 
Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 8:02pm
Háskóli Íslands; Icelandic Research Fund
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 15, 2018

This panel (2 sessions) will consider the ways in which disability is represented in medieval Icelandic literature, particularly in medieval saga writing. Panellists will engage with the concept of disability beyond the traditional bio-medical understanding of the term, exploring disability as a social phenomenon embedded in social arrangements and cultural conventions. They will seek to understand what constituted disability in medieval Icelandic society, culture, and history prior to the establishment of disability as a modern legal, bureaucratic and administrative concept.

deadline for submissions:

Throughout the twentieth century literary studies that focused on world literature were defined and challenged by anti-colonial and postcolonial thought. Postcolonial theory focused on a critique of modernity and especially a critique of western empires. This panel seeks to shift the focus of the study of empire and invites papers that consider representations of the Islamic Empire. We invite papers that analyze literature, film, and other media that engage with Islam as a religion and culture. We ask the following questions, among others: To what extent has Islam affected western immigration policies?

Cities and Their Representations At the Turn of the Century

updated: 
Thursday, August 30, 2018 - 3:16pm
ACLA: American Comparative Literature Organization/ Washington DC
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

Who does the city represent? What does a city represent? What does it mean to represent and how does this come together in representations of cities at the turn of the nineteenth to twentieth centuries, a moment associated with the height of modernity, or at least the height of excitement about the project of modernization? The relationship between cities and modernity is often taken for granted. For example, many scholars associate cities with civilization, particularly as sites for the advancement of civilization. Yet, wholesale urban planning performed from the top down is often enacted in decidedly uncivil ways, calling into question which populations are represented in and by the city, or who is the proper citizen?

Special Issue (2019) of The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies ('Lewis and the Post-War, 1919-1921')

In his autobiography Blasting and Bombardiering (1937), Lewis memorably assessed the world in which he found himself on returning from the western front: 'We were all in the post-war, but that period produced nothing but a lot of sub-Sitwells and sheep in Woolfe’s clothing, and we were not of it. I call us here "the Men of 1914".' The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies seeks 7- to 10,000-word essays that engage with Lewis’s post-war writing, activities, and social networks. We are particularly interested in essays that:
