What makes us happy and content in our life? Some people may point to fabulous fame, fortune, or money. Some may say that the key to happiness are interpersonal relationships. But what if someone is alone? Is loneliness really disastrous? Are there any benefits of loneliness? Can loneliness become an epidemic? In order to answer such questions, during our conference we will have to concentrate on many particular issues. Thus, we are interested in all aspects of loneliness in the past and in the present-day world.

Dear Colleagues,

We want to thank you for your interest in our event and we fully intend to host it in June 2021. Your registration will automatically be applied to the rescheduled event.

Identity and Liminality in African American Literature

This panel seeks presentations about the proclivity of African American racial space. That is, this panel is interested in when and where conceptions of spatial race formalities are conducted. We can think of “space” as time, place, and movement—the constant liminal changing of identities. This panel invites abstracts, of no more than 250 words, for presentations on African American literature at the Midwest Modern Language Association conference. Some topics might include:

Eudora Welty’s Spectacle of Scandal

Eudora Welty's Society @ South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

Guy Debord examined the spectacle through the Marxist lens and discerned that the spectacle draws the public gaze through a collection of images that contain signs that feed on and feed the socially dominant ideology. In other words, spectacles perpetuate the images the ruling class produces to subjugate and degrade. Thus, spectacles are discourses about the ruling class—"a self-portrait of power” (Debord, Society of the Spectacle).  A scandal is a spectacle that violates the social norms of the ruling class, even as it draws the public gaze through sensationalizing the social transgression.

16th International Connotations Symposium: Metagenre

Thursday, April 30, 2020 - 1:08pm
Connotations: A Society for Critical Debate
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 25, 2021

It has often been observed that Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream is a metaliterary and metadramatic play. It presents not only the rough course of true love but also the glories and failures of the poetic imagination and of theatrical illusion, most obviously so in connection with the play within the play performed by Bottom and his fellows. What has less often been pointed out is the argument about genre(s) that is conducted in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Peter Quince refers to the play within the play as a “most lamentable comedy” (1.2.11); the list of entertainments offered to Theseus describes it as “tragical mirth” (5.1.57).

Need chapter on veganism and critical race studies asap

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 20, 2020

I am editing the Routledge Handbook of Vegan Studies, which is currently under contract with the press. Handbooks are typically 30-35 chapters, with chapters being roughly 6000 words (footnotes and works cited inclusive). They aim to provide a cutting edge, comprehensive assessment of the field and will be an essential reference title and benchmark publication for the subject.

Due to a late withdrawal by a contributor, I am seeking proposals for a final needed chapter examining race and veganism that reflects knowledge of the field of Vegan Studies, Critical Race Studies, and that builds on extant work in these disciplines. The essay should provide a broad overview of the issues and tensions that have shaped the discourse on veganism and race.

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.

The Road to Dracula: or the World as Disappointment and Representation

Published at the height of the imperial enterprise, Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897) has a long and intricate backstory. It is, in fact, the result of centuries of British discovery of and disappointment with the world. One by one, naturalists, amateur anthropologists, merchants, soldiers, diplomats or missionaries from the British Isles discovered the world for the armchair travelers at home and built up their self-esteem by disfiguring countries and regions in writings, paintings, and lectures at the Royal Geographical Society.

Gender and the Supernatural in the Victorian Short Story

The Victorian period is generally thought of as an age where science and its discoveries led to a shift from the religious to a scientific explanation of the natural world. Obviously at the centre of this whole shift was Charles Darwin, his powerful inferences and the delayed publication of The Origin of Species, as he feared disturbing established religious and social practices. And the crises of faith it did instill affected an entire generation. However much we wish to adhere to this scientific aspect of the Victorian period, one cannot ignore the fact that the age also saw a proliferation of the interest and belief in the supernatural, the occult, in ghost stories, séances et al.
