English Language Teaching Department of the Islamic Azad University Roudehen Branch is proud to announce 15th International TELLSI Conference to be held on November 22-24, 2017. The conference aims to delve into the theoretical and practical sides of the most contentious and thought-provoking issues in the realms of ELT, English literature, and translation studies. The theme of the conference this year is Applied Linguistics in the 3rdMillennium: Towards Criticality and Reflection. The participants around the globe are kindly invited to critically reflect and review the fields of applied linguistics in the early years of the third millennium.
Journal of Identity, Ontology, and Existences is an OA journal. We plan on publishing an issue three times per year, and we'll be accepting papers on a regular basis (January, July, and November). Our first issue will be set to publish at the end of January in 2018.
The core focus will be on the exploration and investigation of the concepts found in the title of the journal, with some interdisciplinary-ness. Hence, possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to:
This panel, titled Queer Oceans, seeks abstracts for papers that explore the ocean in relation to queer studies. The sea has frequently been idealized as a place for escaping the norms that bind life on land. From sodomitic pirates to the famous spermaceti scene in Moby-Dick, the sea often emerges in suggestively queer contexts. However, discussions of these queer possibilities rarely take into account the nautical setting in which they occur.
Under the Light is focused mostly on discussing and reviewing indie and foreign films, but we are not limited to this. We'd like to create a sort of guide on how to approach films when analyzing and reviewing them (where the analysis or review will be academic in scope). There are books out there on this already, but we'd like to have more genre-specific papers for our guide. Here are just some possibilities:
- The aesthetics of the grotesque in horror film
- Looking at a foreign film through the lens of the respective culture and society
- Psychoanalysis and film
- Film as ecocriticism; ecology within film
Articles can be more general than this, or maybe even more specific (but just slightly so).
This three-day event—a two-day conference followed by a workshop on the third day—aims to interrogate the multiple and overlapping global processes underlying three emergent relational fields or modes of enquiry: precarity, populism and post-truth politics. As a network, we are committed to the pursuit of arguments and ideas that will foster articulation of research questions and positions and the construction of one or more interlinked, interdisciplinary projects. We seek to identify the interconnections between precarity, populism and post-truth politics in ways that will enable the development of cross-cutting thematic and theoretical approaches to these manifestations of global inequality, injustice and tension.

Theoretical Approaches to Andrew Marvell
Marvell Studies seeks articles using and/or arguing for fresh theoretical approaches to the study of Andrew Marvell. Possible approaches might include—but need not be limited to—eco-criticism, queer theory, disability studies, political theory, and the ways in which these approaches alter our understanding of politics, futurity, nature, and life in Marvell’s poetry and prose.
500-word abstracts are due by September 15, 2017. Manuscripts will be due April 15, 2018. Article length is flexible.
This is a call for article-length scholarly contributions for inclusion in a proposed collection of essays (to be published by McFarland) broadly focused around the topic of women and video game “modding.”
Potential topics may include:

The CFP for our next issue - including our THEMED SECTION - is due AUGUST 15
FOR OUR THEMED SECTION:
We are seeking work dealing with theatre that speaks truth to power, that stands up for unheard voices, and that pushes back against tyranny and injustice. We want to celebrate theatre's power to affect the world around us and to serve as a mode of protest. For the themed section, we invite scholarly and creative work.
Submissions of both themed and general work will be considered for this issue.

Following Ellen Eve Frank's Literary Architecture (1979), this panel seeks historically-situated papers that investigate the narrative capabilities of architecture, particularly lived-in architecture. Taking Frank's principle question of how architecture can embody consciousness within literature, this panel expands the scope of her analysis. Although the “spatial turn” in literary studies has produced a great response, its focus regarding architecture specifically as a constructed form that interprets a given space is somewhat lacking. This panel invites projects that work to close that gap and produce a discussion that maps out connections between constructed spaces and the self.
