In recognition of this year’s conference theme, “Artists and Activists,” we welcome papers that explore issues in children’s and young adult literature broadly, but especially invite those that explore the ways that writers of literature for young people have addressed issues of politics, advocacy, and social justice. In our conversations, we hope to think about the place of literature and activism in the lives of young people. 

Topics could include, but are by no means limited to:

·         The role of the child in society; 

·         satire as social commentary;

MLA 2018: Leonora Carrington at 100

Andrew Ferguson
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

This panel seeks to build on the resurgence of interest in the work of Anglo-Mexican surrealist writer and painter Leonora Carrington inaugurated at her death in 2011 at age 94, and continuing through major career retrospectives in Dublin (2013) and Liverpool (2015). For many years, criticism on her writings has been held up by the relative unavailability of her works. Forthcoming centennial reissues of her complete stories (Dorothy Project) as well as her memoir, Down Below (NYRB Classics), however, offer the chance to resituate her work within recent scholarly work on modernism, surrealism, transnationalism, cosmopolitanism, gender studies and sexuality, trauma studies and neurodiversity, translation studies, and more.

Spaced Out. Spatiality in Comics 

International Conference 
Cagliari, Italy, 26-27 October 2017

 

How is space thematised and transformed, strengthened or weakened in the narrative comic? To what extent do comics rewrite and reinvent space by offering a place where spatial coordinates can be reconfigured in a utopian or fantastic manner? How does this reconfiguration affect perception devices? And again, how can the representation of spatiality in comics be modified within the network of the ongoing transmedia transformations?
