OBSCENITY: “I Know It when I See It”
Ireland’s Great Hunger Institute at Quinnipiac University invites you to their biennial Conference, 12-15 June 2019.
Famines in Ireland before 1845 and after 1852
The Great Hunger of 1845 to 1852 has cast a long shadow over the subsequent history of Ireland and its diaspora. Since 1995, there has been a renewed interest in studying this event, by scholars, students, archeologists, artists, musicians, folklorists etc. This interest shows no sign of abating. New research, methodologies and approaches have greatly added to our understanding of the causes, impact and legacies of this tragedy.
I seek participants for a panel at the MLA International Symposium in Lisbon (July 2019) focusing on transpacific imaginaries between Latin America and Asia. In response to this year’s theme, “Remembering Voices Lost,” this panel examines South-South transpacific imaginaries as a potential space to reveal voices that have been doubly unheard or lost. I invite papers that focus on the late 20thand 21stcenturies and consider any aspect of transpacific imaginaries between Asia and Latin America, Asian Latin American cultural production, Latin American representations of Asia/Asians, theoretical considerations of Latin American orientalisms, hemispheric Asian American studies, self-exoticism, etc.

Editors: Alla Ivanchikova and Robert Maclean

This edited collection of essays seeks to answer the following question: what does “Lenin” and “Leninism” signify today? What is the future of Leninism? Why, after thirty years of iconoclasm (that involved the removal of statues of Lenin throughout the former socialist world), in spite of concerted efforts to demote, deconstruct, and discredit Leninist mode of thinking, does the specter of Lenin return to haunt our turbulent political present?

Faulkner’s Transgressive Fictions
A Faulkner Studies in the UK Research Network Panel
The 64th Annual British Association for American Studies (BAAS) Conference at
the University of Sussex (25-27 April, 2019)
In an episode of a British TV series Black Mirror called “Crocodile,” set some time in a near future, memories, both human and nonhuman, become recordable and viewable on a simple, portable device. This unassuming gadget seals the future of the protagonist—a murderer—who, while eliminating all human witnesses to her crime, forgets the nonhuman witness, a guinea pig, whose memory the police is then able to view to promptly identify the suspect. In the 2017 Blade Runner, androids have childhood memories that they know to be fake, implanted by the manufacturer. In turn, cli fi and environmentalist writers inscribe elements, such as water, air, soil, or dust, as memory devices, creating nonhuman archives for posterity.
DEADLINE EXTENDED to 9.30.18
Following on the writing of Hannah Arendt, Cathy Caruth’s work on trauma and narrative points to a “new history of disappearance.”
This panel seeks to explore that “new history” in the context of the transnational space crafted within rhetorics of the American city in contemporary fiction.
The ongoing comparison of the current administration to the Nixon administration calls for a reexamination of the scandal that brought down the latter. Befitting NeMLA’s conference location, this panel seeks to reexamine classic and contemporary depictions of Watergate in order to illuminate the scandal’s connections between literature, film and American politics and culture from the seventies to the present. Accordingly, this panel seeks readings of Watergate, past and present, as depicted in film, literature and culture. Readings can also reexamine Watergate as a moment in American cultural memory and its contemporary ramifications.

“Bites Here and There”:
Literal and Metaphorical Cannibalism across Disciplines
The organiser of the Bites Conference (University of Warwick, 17 November 2018) invites contributions for an edited essay collection, provisionally titled “Bites Here and There”: Literal and Metaphorical Cannibalism across Disciplines.
I am interested in submissions that explore instances of literal or metaphorical cannibalism across fields, and we invite abstracts on topics and disciplines including, but not limited to:
This collection seeks 4,000-6,000 word chapters on cinema and liberation theology for an edited collection which a major academic publisher is interested in.
This collection focuses on liberation narratives which are in some way related to or inspired by religious traditions/literatures/practices/discourses from around the world. The films and analyses need not be explicitly religious in content, but need only to be argued in the context of liberation with theology, spirituality, or divinity.
The resurgence in the early 2000s of “World Literature” as a theoretical framework and institutional practice was coeval with another capacious category also prominent in the debates of those years: globalization.
The global economic crises of the past twenty years have been accompanied by academic revaluations of Marx in economics and the social sciences, as well as a “return to Marx” in popular discourses concerned with economic justice and political activism. During this same period, however, literary studies has witnessed a turn away from Marxist historicism and ideology critique toward “post-critical” methodologies that emphasize weak theories over strong theories, textual surfaces over historical depths, description over suspicion.
