Victorian Popular Fiction Association’s 10th Annual Conference
‘War and Peace’
3-7 July 2018, Institute of English Studies, Senate House, London
Prof. Mariaconcetta Costantini, G. d'Annunzio University of Chieti-Pescara
This special issue will focus on the #MeToo and adjacent movements (#TimesUp, #MuteRKelly, and others). It will examine the movement(s) in the past and present tenses, and think through the potential future implications of activism against sexual violence. Although they are an important part of thinking about/through the movement, we wish to avoid personal narratives and, instead, focus on academic accounts for this issue.
Topics might include:

No More Room in Hell: A Half-Century of Undead Media | September 28-29, 2018
KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Dr. Sarah J. Lauro, University of Tampa, Department of English
This special issue of The Global South aims to identify new approaches to a pair of modern phenomena: the global migration of peoples, and the movement of film and related motion-picture media beyond national boundaries. Proposals are invited for essays that bring together these complex historical and cultural patterns, and examine the implications of the overlapping mobilities of humans and their motion pictures. How has international migration contributed to world film history from the late 19th century to the present? How has the mobility of film culture, from the itinerant travels of filmmakers themselves to the irrepressible movements of the films they created, identified, mirrored, paralleled, catalyzed, criticized, or otherwise register
Deadline for submissions: Proposals 1 July 2018, full chapters 14 October 2018

This is a call for proposals for a Handbook on the topic of violence in film and media. The volume will be published by Palgrave Macmillian.
The Handbook will consist of between 20 and 25 chapters of between 6000 and 8000 words each. All contributions must be in the English language. The Handbook aims to function as a reference work for scholars and students in film and media studies. Contributions should present original research and thinking that result in broad claims about violence in film and media.
At this stage, I am seeking expressions of interest from scholars who would like to contribute to the collection. These should consist of:

UCD Humanities Institute Postgraduate Scholars Conference
Conference date Thursday 27th September 2018
Whether framed as divergent (Ramos), cruel (Franco), subaltern (Saldívar, ed), vanguardist (Sanders), multiple and baroque (Bolívar Echeverría), kaleidoscopic (Schelling), contradictory and hybrid (García Canclini), truncated (Roniger), enchanted (Morello et all), or with a dark side (Mignolo), discussions of modernity have predominated in the field of Latin American Studies. These deep explorations into the nature of modernity have also shown a particular preference for spatiality, a visual category which privileges a critical vocabulary that seeks to map, survey, visualize, and picture a series of landscapes and territories.

Abstract with bio- note - last date 31 May, 2018. Other dates to be notified later.
Sometimes we have to laugh to keep from crying...and many people, especially today, use humor as a form of critique and resistance. This panel welcomes abstracts on any aspect of humor and activism in America. By May 16, 2018, please submit a 250-word abstract, brief biographical statement (inclusive of academic affiliation and contact information), and A/V requirements to Autumn Lauzon, The University of North Carolina at Pembroke, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This panel is an affiliated session with SAMLA 90 (November 2-4, 2018 in Birmingham, Alabama).
The AIDS crisis in France and Francophone countries has seen the emergence of a “littérature SIDA,” as well as artistic expressions through various media such as photography or films. On August 23rd 2017, the movie 120 battements par minute (BPM), shed a light on the first years of activism of Act Up-Paris in the early 1990s. In April 2018, France Culture’s radio show LSD, La série documentaire, dedicated four days to the topic “Quand la création raconte le SIDA.” Despite the medical advances, both the movie and radio show reminded viewers and listeners of a duty to remember the AIDS crisis. This panel will focus on the representations of AIDS and the accompanying activism in literature, cinema and arts from French and Francophone artists.
The 116th annual conference of the Pacific Ancient & Modern Language Association (PAMLA) will be held at the idyllic Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, from Friday, November 9, to Sunday, November 11.
The Birmingham meeting place of SAMLA 90 and the conference theme, “Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies,” suggests the extent to which social justice has replaced literary aesthetics as the driving force of literary classroom pedagogy. While our classrooms may still be filled with analysis of irony, depth, and complexity, it is certainly true that the intersectional barriers to social justice have become an animating force in the analysis of literature. The questions this panel wants to ask include:
