The importance of religion in contemporary debates ranging from nationalism to its place in the public sphere is exceedingly being felt. Nations -- referred to as imagined communities (c.f. Anderson) -- speak to the profound need for both legitimacy and belonging(ness), often articulated through one’s religious vis-a-vis ethnic identities in the modern world. This volume will explore this issue by focusing on the relationships between religion, geo-politics and the articulation of nationalism in the context of South Asia.

Best Practices for Retention (Extended Deadline)

While university administrators have many ways to assess a program’s or department’s effectiveness, student retention is one of the more controversial measures.  Particularly, retention often seems inherently at odds with our roles as college professors since—fairly or not—issues of retention are conflated with concerns over grade inflation and academic rigor.  Yet, as studies show, universities lose students over the first two years of college for a variety of reasons: financial, the absence of strong academic mentoring and peer relationships, the strains of commuting, as well as family pressures and responsibilities that threaten to derail academic pursuits.

WORKING WOMEN SUFFRAGETTES' LIFE WRITING IN BRITAIN AND AMERICA

SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 9, 2018

DEADLINE EXTENDED. While there has been interest in the suffrage movement in both America and England for many years now, one area that has not received as much scholarly attention is the analysis of Life Writing created by those within the movement. Both working- and middle-class women provide an intimate portrait of what it was like to fight for suffrage for so many years.  I propose a panel that examines the connections between suffragettes of different classes, ages, and nationalities as well as those in positions of power who supported them throughout. By May 30, please submit a 300-word abstract, brief biographical statement, and any AV requirements to Sarah N.

deadline for submissions:

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.

For a proposed panel at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America 2019 (Toronto, 17 -19 March): I am seeking papers on early modern printers. Our modern sense of publishers as (more often than not) merely profiting from the creative agency of authors obscures the meaningful role early printers had in cultural production, politics (conservative and radical), the reception of major works, and the establishment of a public sphere. Printers sometimes simply sought sales, but they also often specialized and promoted particular agendas.

Session Title – Performing Empathy:  When Literary Texts Are Acts of Kindness

This session seeks papers on the empathic potentials of literature, broadly defined.  The subtext here is the social division in the present-day America, where sympathy fatigue—a feeling of resentment arising from the belief that one has been asked to extend one’s sympathy to outgroups, such as women, minorities, immigrants, and the poor, beyond what one feels is reasonable—is often cited as one reason for the intransigence.  The larger question we will ask ourselves is the following:  how can literature act as a vehicle of empathic connection and reinforce people’s capacity for compassion toward the marginalized other?
