This panel (2 sessions) will consider the ways in which disability is represented in medieval Icelandic literature, particularly in medieval saga writing. Panellists will engage with the concept of disability beyond the traditional bio-medical understanding of the term, exploring disability as a social phenomenon embedded in social arrangements and cultural conventions. They will seek to understand what constituted disability in medieval Icelandic society, culture, and history prior to the establishment of disability as a modern legal, bureaucratic and administrative concept.

Throughout the twentieth century literary studies that focused on world literature were defined and challenged by anti-colonial and postcolonial thought. Postcolonial theory focused on a critique of modernity and especially a critique of western empires. This panel seeks to shift the focus of the study of empire and invites papers that consider representations of the Islamic Empire. We invite papers that analyze literature, film, and other media that engage with Islam as a religion and culture. We ask the following questions, among others: To what extent has Islam affected western immigration policies?

Who does the city represent? What does a city represent? What does it mean to represent and how does this come together in representations of cities at the turn of the nineteenth to twentieth centuries, a moment associated with the height of modernity, or at least the height of excitement about the project of modernization? The relationship between cities and modernity is often taken for granted. For example, many scholars associate cities with civilization, particularly as sites for the advancement of civilization. Yet, wholesale urban planning performed from the top down is often enacted in decidedly uncivil ways, calling into question which populations are represented in and by the city, or who is the proper citizen?
Proposals for both panels and individual papers are now being accepted for all aspects of Fan Culture and Theory, including, but not limited to, the following areas:

Special Issue (2019) of The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies ('Lewis and the Post-War, 1919-1921')
In his autobiography Blasting and Bombardiering (1937), Lewis memorably assessed the world in which he found himself on returning from the western front: 'We were all in the post-war, but that period produced nothing but a lot of sub-Sitwells and sheep in Woolfe’s clothing, and we were not of it. I call us here "the Men of 1914".' The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies seeks 7- to 10,000-word essays that engage with Lewis’s post-war writing, activities, and social networks. We are particularly interested in essays that:

Special Issue of The Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics
Guest Editors: Ames Hawkins and Maria Novotny
This special issue explores the practice of curation as a multimodal form of creative-critical scholarship. Creative-critical scholarship often employs creative practice as methods and methodologies (Anderson, 2014). It does so in order to not only articulate, but to demonstrate and make material, the relevance of arts practice as scholarly inquiry (Wysocki, 2004). We see creative-critical scholarship as an artistic scholarly method facilitating action and engagement in critical social issues. We intend, then, for this special issue to call further attention to creative-critical scholarship as a multimodal rhetorical practice.
