As Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz indicate in their article “The New Modernist Studies,” recent trends in modernist studies have operated a radical revision of the term “modernism,” moving away from the idea that modernism is confined to a single place (Europe, North America, and the West in general) or a single time (roughly 1890-1940). As the map of “transnational” and “global” modernisms expands, ever more attention has been given to new languages, phenomena of bilingualism and multilingualism, and translation as a fundamental practice in modernist writing (Yao, Rogers).

deadline for submissions:

Anemoi is a new peer-reviewed undergraduate journal of pre-modern studies being published by students at New College of Florida in Sarasota. We are looking for submissions and team members. We aim to provide a voice and CV opportunities to undergraduates.

Submissions must handle a 'pre-modern' topic, which may range broadly from classics to early modern studies, and should be directed towards an audience not necessarily bringing with them a background in the field. Papers should explain particular terminology and essential background. We encourage papers under a range of interdisciplinary topics within these fields, including but not limited to music, history, theology, literature, drama, philosophy, art, language, and economics.

The 49th NeMLA Annual ConventionApril 12-15, 2018 Pittsburgh, PA

This panel seeks to investigate particular narrative strategies of describing the non-human experience in literature, drama, philosophy, and art throughout the ages (not simply the 21st century). Papers for this panel are invited to reflect the following questions: how are ideas of the non-human transmitted in literature, art, and other media and how can we assess them? What trends, novel methods, gaps, or fallbacks are present as humans attempt to understand the other? Further, how do narrative strategies across media or time periods compare or contrast?

Possible approaches to investigating narrative strategies may include but are non limited to:

World Literature: Postcolonial Perspectives, New Delhi, India, 15—17 March, 2018

The idea of world literature has seen an unparalleled resurgence in the last two decades or so. Through large-scale research grants, publishing programmes, and curricula development it is threatening to become the new critical common sense across the humanities, and particularly in literature departments. However, both in the nineteenth-century idea of Weltliteratur (Goethe, Marx-Engels) and in its more recent revival as the new comparative literature, world literature has many and important genealogical entanglements with colonial/postcolonial histories, and only in recent years have we begun to explore these links critically. Unlike the paradigm of comparative literature, for instance, world literature relies on ‘a translatability assumption’.

The Theme

As researchers, no matter our subject, we commit ourselves to a process of generating, analysing and debating ideas. In working towards completion, we continue to gather and negotiate an increasing number of ideas, always looking to constellate them in rich and innovative ways. As these constellations expand and contract, as the ideas fall in and out of view, the documents we retain begin to record a far more expansive sphere of possibility than can be accounted for in a single thesis.

The Chitrolekha Journal on Art and Design
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 31, 2017

The Chitrolekha Journal on Art and Design (www.chitrolekha.com) is a scholarly platform for discussions on the evolution and intercategorial development of art and design. The journal explores arts both as a mode of signaling as well as being in an ontological sense. The mystery of the first arts of our ancestors intrigues us today, from a scientific as much as an aesthetic perspective. Similarly the future of arts leads us to think of things quite unknown to us. The scope of the journal therefore, will be open-ended so as to be able to incorporate and address emerging areas in human arts and sciences. Research papers on any of the following broad areas can be submitted:
