Call for Papers: Special Issue, The Comparatist
Topic: Figuring Race
General Editor: Zahi Zalloua (Whitman College)
We welcome contributions that examine the notion of race in comparative studies and literary theory. How do we imagine, represent, and construct race today? What role does race play in the Humanities? How do we talk about race in an ideologically color blind society? How does racial difference relate to other type of differences? Can we foreground race while avoiding both the pitfalls of identity politics and the depoliticization of race by neoliberalism? Topics of interest could include:
Black Lives Matter
Critical Race Theory
Afronatures and Afrofutures: Speculation, Technology, and Environment in African Literature and Film // MLA 2018, New York City, January 4-7 // Panel arranged by the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment
The editors invite chapters of c. 7000 words for an edited collection called Women on the Edge in Early Modern Europe. We are interested primarily in historical rather than fictional women, but also welcome discussion of the treatment of historical women in early modern writing and drama. Topics might include (but are not limited to) women whose geographical location is in some way marginal; women in liminal positions and situations; women whose marital status was uncertain or ambiguous; women with mental health issues; women waiting to see if they would or might inherit land or titles; divorced women; women whose status shifted throughout their lives; or women who were neither maid, widow, nor wife.

Welcome to the 3rd International Conference on the Globalization of Second Language Acquisition and Teacher Education (G-SLATE 2017) held Monday and Tuesday, October 30-31, 2017 at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. Following the commencement and plenary, please join us for a special welcome brunch reception at the Hawaii Convention Center Monday, October 30th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 noon.
This international symposium is an exploration of non-industrial cultures from both the Old World and the New World, with special focus on the significance of monumental building. Megaliths, mounds, kivas and cairns: monumental ceremonial and ritual spaces are hallmarks of human development that predate agriculture and technology. Researchers from around the world will explore the traditions of various Indigenous people in pursuit of a better understanding of how civilization got on its current path.
