Comparative Caribbeans: an Interdisciplinary Conference*

This is why we stay with poetry. And despite our consenting to all the indisputable technologies; despite seeing the political leap that must be managed..., the full load of knowledge to be tamed..., at the bow there is still something we now share: this murmur, cloud or rain or peaceful smoke. …We cry our cry of poetry. Our boats are open, and we sail them for everyone.

We are seeking two or three essays exploring asexuality and masculinity for a volume titled Asexualities: Feminist and Queer Perspectives. To get a general sense of the volume, please see the original CFP included below. This volume is well underway, and based on some editorial feedback, we would like to add a few more voices to the collection. We are particularly interested in essays that address the social construction of asexuality from a male or masculine perspective or that tackle the connections between gender and (a)sexuality through the lens of masculinity. Other approaches to thinking asexuality in relation to masculinity will also be considered.

Ecocritical Approaches to Francophone Literatures, Due 09/30/11

43rd Annual NeMLA Convention, March 15-18th, 2012 in Rochester, New York

Since its emergence ecocritical discourse has exhibited a tendency toward parochialism in its primary focus on Anglophone and American literatures and ecologies. Recent ecocritical work has turned toward the global and the theoretical. Nevertheless, significant gaps remain—particularly in regard to ecocritical scholarship on Francophone literatures. This panel proposes to address that gap.
