Climate Fictions / Indigenous Studies

updated: 
Monday, August 19, 2019 - 11:21am
University of Cambridge
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 10, 2019

Critical Indigenous studies can neither be perceived as niche, nor trivialized as topical. In the way climate-capitalism has become an existential threat, a sincere engagement with Indigenous knowledges has become ineluctable. This conference seeks to initiate a multidisciplinary conversation on climate change, as conceived by, and re-inscribed within, Indigenous literatures. So far within the small domain of English Humanities, contemporary climate fiction by Indigenous authors have presented an urgent need to converse with scientific and social-scientific approaches to climate change.

9/11 and Its Aftermath in the New Millennium

Monday, August 19, 2019 - 11:07am

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

NeMLA, Boston, MA. March 5-8

In a 2011 Economist Prospero blog entitled "After the Unthinkable," the effects of 9/11 on literature was compared to those of World War II in that it "will continue to be a marking point." As we approach the twentieth anniversary of September 11, 2001, this panel seeks to move beyond representations of the day itself to explore the various nuances of post-9/11 literature by looking at how the long political and cultural aftermath have left their mark on literary and visual culture. 

Education and Incarceration: Challenges, Rewards, Setbacks, and Solutions Roundtable

Sunday, September 30, 2018

NeMLA Boston, MA. March 5-8

According to a recent report from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, nearly 1.5 million people are incarcerated in the United States. Results from various organizations indicate that people who are incarcerated generally have lower formal education than people who have not been incarcerated. Such findings indicate that regardless of the actual prison sentence a person receives, it becomes a type of life sentence when a lack of education denies full participation in society. 

Making the Most of Our Disciplinarity: Writing Connections Among Composition and Literature Courses

Monday, August 19, 2019 - 11:05am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Depending on the institution, the department, the politics, and the history of a space, composition and literature faculty often face constant pressure to legitimize or explain the work that we do. However, few opportunities are available to do so in real and tangible ways with departments and faculty outside of our own. This panel seeks to explore the ways that writing and English courses function within and across institutions throughout the country in an effort to develop real-time strategies that increase the visibility of our work, including its interdisciplinarity. How can we increase collaboration with faculty outside of our own silos in order to foster a stronger writing culture across campuses?

Rediscovering Victorian Latin America

MLA 2020 "Just in Time" Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 5, 2019

 

CFP for MLA's extended deadline for "Just in Time" panel proposals.

MLA Annual convention will meet January 9-12, 2020 in Seattle, WA, USA. 

I am hoping to round out a panel titled "Rediscovering Victorian Latin America" (or something to this effect). Essentially, it aims to stimulate a current examination of what Latin America means to Victorian studies today via innovative cross-cultural readings of either Victorian literature, periodicals, and cultural products, Latino immigration to the UK, or British colonial settlements in Hispanophone South America/Caribbean. The panel may also possibly reflect upon earlier scholarship in this sub-field (if that is of concern to any participants).

Genre Trouble: Interrogating the Gaze through Film Genre (NeMLA 2020)

51st NeMLA Convention | March 5-8, 2020 | Boston, MA

Feminist film critics have pioneered work on the intimate relationship between gender and genre, thus problematizing and unsettling long-standing dominant narratives, structures of looking, and spectatorial positions. Indeed, much of the work by feminist filmmakers showcases an innovative use of genre conventions that opens up new narrative avenues and destabilizes audiences' expectations. Considering its historical dimension, the notion of film genre becomes an invaluable category and analytical tool to explore questions not only of sexual difference, but also of sexual orientation, race, class, or culture.

Mad Scholars Anthology

Mad Scholar Collective
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 30, 2019

Recently, there has been an avalanche of news articles about spikes in mental illness on campus. Seminal works like Margaret Price's Mad at School (2011) have begun to expose the ableism inherent in the university and prompted more open discussion surrounding the politics of disclosure.

As interest in this crucial topic grows, we are seeking out academics with psychiatric disorders and disabilities to contribute chapters to an essay collection on Mad Scholars, showcasing personal perspectives and professional experiences from across disciplines and career stages.

The Problem of Epic (roundtable) @ ICMS 2020

updated: 
Friday, August 16, 2019 - 6:34pm
Société Rencesvals American-Canadian Branch
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019

The Société Rencesvals was founded in 1955 to “promote the study of romance epics.” But what does it mean, today, to promote the study of a literary genre in which Europe, Christendom, victory, heroism and other valorized terms are too often defined in violent opposition to racial, religious, and cultural others? How do we handle the key concepts and narrative structures of the medieval epic—heroism, lineage, holy war, invasion, defense of the homeland—in the current cultural climate, and especially in the classroom? What kind of scholarly community exists, and how can we account for and move beyond that community's omissions, exclusions, blind spots?
