Indigenous Hubs, Gateway Cities, Border States

Western Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 15, 2018

The 2018 annual conference of the Western Literature Association will take place October 24-27 at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. “Indigenous Hubs, Gateway Cities, Border States” is derived from this location. This region, at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, has been urban for thousands of years. Cahokia, known for its impressive earthen mounds, is directly across the river from today’s St. Louis, and once housed the largest pre-Columbian civilization north of Mexico, a hub for trade, communication, and transportation throughout indigenous North America. Long before St. Louis was known as the “Gateway to the West,” it was nicknamed “Mound City.”

Papers can consider all topics related to the Pacific and New Zealand, with priority given to papers that address the themes of ‘regional identities’ and/or ‘coastal communities’. We are particularly interested in papers that consider space and place in relation to the coast, beaches and beyond. However, interpretations of the theme are broad and can include national, urban and rural identities, town and country, gender and ethnicity, cultural expressions and local industries, the environment and climate change. The conference fee includes annual membership to the NZSA, which for 2018 includes a twice-yearly journal.

Conference to be held in Madrid on June 22-23, 2018

 

Keynote speakers: Dr. Joni Adamson and Dr. Scott Slovic

 

Since the discovery of DNA the metaphor of writing to the genetic makeup of living beings has been a tempting one to engage. As George and Muriel Beadle wrote in 1966 (and as Marcello Barbieri points to in his essay “What is Biosemiotics?”) “The deciphering of the genetic code has revealed our possession of a language much older than hieroglyphics, a language as old as life itself, a language that is the most living language of all—even if its letters are invisible and its words are buried in the cells of our bodies” (Beadle and Beadle 1966). 

 

CFP for MLA 2019--Beyond Manga: Comics in Asia

updated: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018 - 11:57am
Jessica Gross, for MLA panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

The comics world has been hugely influenced by, and in a large part shaped by, Japanese manga. Thus, manga is the center of many discussions about Asian comics in the United States. However, in Comics Studies less attention is given to comics from other Asian countries. This panel seeks to widen the discussion about comics to bring attention to Asian comics outside of Japan, and to interrogate the many visual forms and thematic concerns of Asian comics. Papers on comics from any Asian country other than Japan are welcome; papers must be in English but may discuss comics in any language. This call is for a non-guaranteed panel at the 2019 Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago from January 3-6, 2019.
