ASLE 2019 Conference: Paradise on Fire
June 26-30, 2019
University of California, Davis
Submission deadline is December 15, 2018 at 11:59pm EST
CALL FOR PAPERS
ANTAE (ISSN 2523-2126) invites original full-length article submissions for its upcoming general issues.
ANTAE is a refereed, interdisciplinary journal aimed at exploring current concerns and debates within literary studies, theory, and criticism. The journal welcomes submissions situated across the interdisciplinary spaces provided by diverse forms and expressions within narrative, poetry, theatre, literary theory, cultural criticism, philosophy, media studies, digital cultures, and language studies. Creative writing, translations, and book or conference reviews are also encouraged.
This issue of JAST will be dedicated to the works and legacy of Amiri Baraka—poet, dramatist, essayist and activist. Formerly known as LeRoi Jones, Amiri Baraka entered the Greenwich Village literary scene in 1957 as one of the most original poets and editors of the new writing and poetry that was emerging outside of academia and the established publishing world. Baraka’s profound and pointed criticism took shape in the milieu of the racial brutality of the 1960s, and continued to transform as Black Power was put into practice. Amidst assassinations and urban rebellions, he retreated to his hometown, Newark, New Jersey, and committed himself to African American cultural expression in the broadest sense of the term.
This panel invites interdisciplinary thinkers to transcend standardized methodologies for teaching and learning about the environment. The ASLE Biennial Conference (themed 'Paradise on Fire') will be held at University of California, Davis, from June 26-30, 2019.
Paradise is burning - or melting, flooding, or otherwise collapsing. In actuality, these collapses are simultaneous, or convergent as Christian Parenti has termed it. Or, as a recent article states, "when the Arctic melts, the West burns."
The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Toni Morrison and Teju Cole, Bei Dao and Rita Dove, Tony Kushner and Lynn Nottage, Joan Didion and Ta-Nehisi Coates without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

Montesquieu's assertion that the fall of the Roman Empire could be attributed to a decline in morality and deviation from Classical ideals redefined the term “décadence.” From a neutral term for “decline,” decadence transformed into a laden pejorative signifying perversity and decay, as well as a warning against the dangers of excess and the pursuit of pleasure. Perceived as a disruptive force, dangerous to social order and bourgeois normativity, the threat of decadence is still invoked in modern political rhetoric to stoke anxieties over shifts in traditional values and social mores, as well as the looming threat of an irretrievable loss of geopolitical power.
Teaching the History of the Bookwill assemble essays by scholars and teachers from across all fields of literary and language study, exploring theories, practices, and problems in teaching about and with the history of the book. Essays in the volume will provide historical context, theoretical frames, and practical insights for effectively teaching the history of the book, as a subject in its own right and as a component or method in courses on other subjects in the field of literature and language, both within and beyond the Anglophone world.

“Music is the melody whose text is the world.” —Arthur Schopenhauer
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” — Maya Angelou
Music is integral to our lives. It gives voice to the feelings and thoughts that cannot be spoken. It has been used on battlefields as well as battles for the heart. It can heal and comfort as well as engender anger and hatred. It has been blamed for mass shootings as well as credited for bringing huge crowds together. It can reinforce cultural mores or break the rules. It fosters connections with the sacred and the profane. It is all around us.
