CALL FOR PAPERS
Truth and Truths: Memory, Identity, and Nation
The world has started to change drastically and everything seems to be a ganie of chance, as higher powers and accountability are amok. The more changes occur, the more everything seems to be going in a circle. The games, sins and powers, like the Mafia, have and continue to shape societies. This is a time when we are faced with looking to the past for potential answers and at unlikely sources for guidance. The goal for this conference is to examine these three tenets and create a conversation about Latin American and Iberian literature from all centuries and genres where either one or all have shaped people, places and beliefs. Ultimately, what was the result and what answers and guidance can be found?

Since the turn of the millennium the United States of America has undergone what many have considered to be a series of political, financial, and institutional crises. At the same time, the increasing popularity of the science fiction genre has, in many ways, frequently both dramatized and provided a commentary on the fears and anxieties this period has evoked. The philosopher and cultural critic Walter Benjamin argued that allegory emerges most frequently in periods of crisis and uncertainty, correspondingly it is no coincidence that some of the most powerful films to emerge from American cinema in the last two decades are allegorical texts and many of which have come from the science fiction genre.

A handful of gleanings are known as a ‘songle’, a word that also gives its name to a component of an electrical switch. Electrically and agriculturally, songles delimit and define fields: a songle relay alters an electromagnetic current; a songle of gleaned sheaves alters the flows of agricultural production.
Proposals are invited for ten minute presentations to form part of a session on gleaning, or, SONGLE, as part of the programme at the 2019 ASLE-UKI Biennial, ‘Co-emergence, Co-creation, Co-existence’ (http://asle.org.uk/).

In common superhero mythos, unearthly, other-than-human, or more-than-human figures use their many extraordinary abilities to restore order, do battle with evil, uphold justice, and protect the innocent. Acting as guardians, protectors and defenders of Earth and its people, these courageous figures have long captured both our attention and imagination. However, with the rise of several notable media franchises, superheroes have become a ubiquitous part of our present popular cultural moment.
