Lives and Afterlives: Call for Sub-themes

Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 27, 2018

The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium invites proposals for panel themes engaging with the lives and afterlives of medieval cultures for its 2019 meeting. These sub-themes address a particular aspect of our general theme, and could be the basis for either one or two panels. As a rule of thumb, panel themes should be broad enough to encourage numerous applicants, and interdisciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged. Possibilities might include the theologies of heaven, medieval ecologies, everyday life in the Middle Ages, the production of reliquaries, ordering of public space, and popular medievalism.

With his signature bullwhip and fedora, the familiar sounds of his orchestral anthem, and his eventful explorations into the arcana of world religions, Indiana Jones – archeologist, adventurer, and ophidiophobe – has become one of the most recognizable heroes of the silver screen.  Since his debut in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones has appeared in three sequels, and Steven Spielberg has recently announced that he will soon begin production on a fifth Indiana Jones film.  Along the way, the character has spawned a raft of children’s novels, cartoon and live-action television series, and video and role-playing games.  Despite the longevity and popularity of the Indiana Jones franchise, however, it has rarely been the focus of academic

Panel for SAMLA 90, "Women of the Avant-Garde and Political Dissent: Resisting Power from the Margins"

SAMLA 90, November 2nd-4th_Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 4, 2018

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.

Migrant Literature from the Arabian Gulf (Khaleej)

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 11, 2018

Contemporary migrant literature/s from the Arabian Gulf implore us to examine and reinterpret the ethico-political practices of a land that is paradoxically inhabited primarily by people from elsewhere. Non-citizens are a significant part of Gulf’s population. Benyamin’s Goat Days, Deepak Unnikrishnan’s Temporary People, Saud Al Sanousi’s The Bamboo Stalk, and Mia Alvar’s In the Country are some of the texts that make visible the particular anxieties of modern Arabian Gulf migratory politics through fiction.

American Literature before 1865 Panel at PAMLA

Friday, May 18, 2018 - 3:45pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

This session welcomes papers that explore any aspect of American Literature before 1865, including American Renaissance, Colonial, and Puritan literature. While we are open to papers dealing with a variety of topics and authors during this time period, we are particularly interested in papers that engage with the special conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages." As such, papers dealing with issues such as acting as art and metaphor, theories of role play and theatricality, and conceptions of the world stage and the public audience in American Literature prior to 1865 are particularly welcome. If your paper does not tap into these specific themes but deals with literary topics relevant to this era, you are still more than welcome to submit a proposal.
