deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 7, 2017

The Carson McCullers Society seeks abstracts on the theme of "Byways in Carson McCullers Scholarship" for the biennial Society for the Study of Southern Literature conference in Austin, TX this February 15-18, 2018. The theme is deliberately broad but especially invites papers on McCullers' literary and biographical engagements with the U.S. military, non-southern characters in her oeuvre, and how her travels and readings abroad, including in Rome and New York, influenced her work. If interested, please send a 250-word abstract and short bio to Society Vice President Isadora J. Wagner (iwagner@go.olemiss.edu) by Thursday, September 7th. Other paper topics related to McCullers will also be considered.

The picturesque old town is intact, with late medieval university buildings and half-timbered houses as well as Hölderlin tower, where the German poet lived, by the Neckar River.

Please send submissions by midnight EDT on Friday, August 11 to: Gib Prettyman, cgp3@psu.edu.  Apologies for the short notice.

Journal of Identity, Ontology, and Existences
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

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:

Queer Oceans Panel

Sunday, August 6, 2017 - 4:34pm
NeMLA Convention 2018 Pittsburgh
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

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.

Techniques & Perspectives on the Analysis of Film

Under the Light
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

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).

CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT PRECARITY, POPULISM AND POST-TRUTH POLITICS

updated: 
Saturday, August 5, 2017 - 5:47am
University of Córdoba, Spain
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

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.
