The presence of science fiction in university classrooms is by now no longer shocking; the genre has become a mainstay not only in literature and philosophy classrooms but also in STEM fields, as its predictions and extrapolations pose memorable and concrete case studies to explore the societal and ethical implications of technological innovation, as well as interesting practical engineering problems to try to solve with real-world science.
We are seeking panelist proposals for the accepted Children’s Literature Association (ChLA 2020) conference panel “Sustaining Black Lives: Ecological Imaginaries in African American Books for Young Readers.” The ChLA 2020 theme “Sustainability Through Story: Eco-Justice, Children's Literature, and Childhood” invites “an expansive array of interdisciplinary topics on the cultural, political, historical, and contemporary impact of children’s literature in relationship to the environment.” This panel seeks papers that correlates race and gender with Black sustainability issues like environmental inequity and global migration.

PHENOMENOLOGY AND the Social
In an increasingly precarious and complicated political, social, and cultural landscape—in academia, in activist spaces, and in everyday life—feminist scholars often find themselves at a crossroad between their professional obligations and their desire to make both their teaching and writing continually relevant to a larger public. Feminist scholars are uniquely positioned to advance public knowledge and help maintain a vibrant cultural awareness of issues affecting women and girls, racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, indigenous peoples, LGBTQAI individuals, and others adversely affected by the current political climate both in the U.S. and transnationally.

Rapunzel lowers her plaited hair 20 cubits deep, so that her prince can climb into her hermetically sealed tower. Donald Trump’s signature quiff – a piece of interwoven fabric with no evident beginning and end – is treated as a metaphor for his relationship to truth and politics. Samson defeats the Philistines oppressing the Israelites in the Old Testament with his superhuman strength: the origin of his invincibility lies in the vigour of his hair as long as it is not cut.

The English Department at UNA welcomes you to participate in this year’s Graduate Conference: Migration: Shifting to and fro and In-between
While influxes of immigrants/migrants/refugees arriving to the U.S. dominate conceptualizations of identity and belonging, it is vital to analyze our deeper understandings of migration.
