The University of British Columbia’s annual English Graduate Conference cordially invites submissions under the themes of Disruption, Resistance, and Resilience.
In the wake of years of political, social, and ecological crises that have disrupted, disoriented, and displaced populations across the globe, modes of resistance and resilience have emerged to confront the disarray. From the rise of Trump and “fake news” to the latest IPCC report on the impending irrevocability of climate change, humanities studies and art practices have stepped up to the challenge to revolutionize their age-old roles of disruption and resilience-making on a much larger global stage.

CFP Panel at the 2019 South Atlantic MLA conference (Atlanta, GA: Nov. 8 - 10) Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become a central tenet of American life. Neoliberal thought subsequently spread across the globe in a variety of forms (via channels including Hollywood and regulatory bodies such as the International Monetary Fund). Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life. This epistemic shift can be felt far and wide, from politicians to postmodern theorists. This panel will investigate symptoms of – and responses to – this shift in the areas of literature and media studies.

A Critical Companion to Stanley Kubrick
Edited by Elsa Colombani
Part of the Critical Companion to Popular Directors series
edited by Adam Barkman and Antonio Sanna
Both Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault took the body as an object of critical inquiry but explored it in divergent ways. This collection of essays, under contract with McFarland and Company, will bring together scholars working from Lacanian and Foucaultian perspectives to interrogate the body. Collectively, the papers selected for this volume will aspire to answer, among others, the following questions: how do Lacan and Foucault approach the body, and what new forms of subjectivity emerge when we pay attention to the body? What are we allowed to do to or with our bodies, and what are we allowed to ask others to do to or with our bodies?

CFP: Neo-Gothic Narratives
Recent years have seen the strong development of Neo-Victorian studies, including a theorization of the project by scholars including Ann Helimann, Christian Gutleben, Marie-Louise Kohlke, Mark Llewellyn and others. This collection on the Neo-Gothic invites similar attempts to define and theorize what exactly qualifies as such a text, what mobilizes the employment of the gothic to speak to our own times, whether nostalgia plays a role, and whether might there is room for humour or only for trauma in these narratives across various media.
We invite submissions on neo-Gothic topics that may include, but are not limited to, the following:
“T. S. Eliot: Identity / Politics”
The phrase “identity politics” has become as highly charged as the phrase “politically correct”—more often deployed today as an invitation to attack or defend some group or form of affiliation. For the 2020 MLA in Seattle, the International T. S. Eliot Society will sponsor a panel that recognizes the power of the phrase and the importance of all that it points toward, but we intend to avoid the merely reactive, accusatory and defensive postures that often attend its use.
This is a Call for Chapters to be published in the book "Developing Effective Communication Skills in Archaeology" by IGI Global.

Cultural life in the regions is part of what makes our regional centres vibrant places to live, work, create, share, and participate, as well as providing the basis for insights concerning place, space, and identity that can be divergent from those arising from other locatednesses. The experience of regional Australia is unique. John Woinarski has written that there "are places in Australia that are awe-inspiring, spectacular, mysterious; they touch our spirit and help define our nation"; but these places are complicated, for ideas of the bush or the outback are "sometimes more shifting myth than reality".

Abstract and short bio by 10 March 2019 to Erica McAlpine at firstname.lastname@example.org
As a way to comment on a person’s style, the word “tacky” has distinctly southern origins. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, it first emerged around 1800 as a noun to describe “a poor white of the Southern States from Virginia to Georgia.” Although the OED does not draw connections between this origin and the origins of the adjective describing something “dowdy, shabby; in poor taste, cheap, vulgar,” these definitions suggest a clear link between national stereotypes of region, race, and class and urbane (and northern urban?) notions of taste, class, and sensibility.
