"Confessions": postmedieval 11, no. 2
SAMLA's 91st Annual Convention will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, November 8-10. The conference theme is "Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships." I am soliciting papers for a panel on Zora Neale Hurston's most recent publication, Barracoon.
Originally named Kossola, Cudjo Lewis was illegally brought to America on the last slave ship, the Clotilda. Hurston completed the manuscript about his life story in 1931, but it was not published until 2018 as Barracoon, The Story of the Last Black Cargo. Critics praised this text as evidence of Hurston’s anthropological skills, yet it also serves as a rejoinder to the skewed white-washed history of slavery in the popular imagination.
The Journal of New Librarianship (newlibs.org) invites submissions from library scholars,
practitioners, and students for its next issue (V4. No. 2). JNL welcomes traditional and
unestablished forms of scholarly and professional communication related to any aspect of
librarianship. We hope to see a wide variety of content in terms of scope, length, and format,
from lengthy treatises on intersectionality and library practice, to video projects on the
transformation of a library's physical space and the perceived impact.
Submissions may include but are not limited to:
- Solicited articles
- Scholarly articles
- Media (podcasts, video, etc)
- Book reviews
- Technology reviews

Ecological Critique and Critical Technology Studies. ASLE Panel at SLSA 2019 at UC Irvine
[T]he principle which regulates the existing social relations between the two sexes—the legal subordination of one sex to the other—is wrong in itself, and now one of the chief hindrances to human improvement; [...] it ought to be replaced by a principle of perfect equality, admitting no power or privilege on the one side, nor disability on the other.

Historical Novel Society Australasia 2019 Conference
25-27 October 2019, Rydalmere Campus, Western Sydney University.
Academic Stream: Sunday 27 October
On the final day of the HNSA conference, we will bring together postgraduates, academics, and other interested scholars to consider the complexities of the genre of historical fiction and its readership. What counts as an historical novel is increasingly up for grabs: in terms of period (what counts as ‘the past’—and how past is past?), and the porosity of the boundaries of genre (viz. how historical is historical fantasy?).
- 250-word proposals due April 10, 2019
- Essays of 2,000-3,000 words due July 1, 2019
- Publication: Spring 2020
The guest editors of a special issue of Assay: A Journal of Nonfiction Studies seek proposals for essays that address non-fictional forms in relation to multiply mediated concepts of truth and reality.
In Écrire l’espace, Marie-Claire Ropars-Wuilleumier wrote that “la notion d’espace littéraire implique une double équation, suivant laquelle la littérature, en son désœuvrement, relève de l’espace, en même temps que l’œuvre littéraire, de par la singularité de son écriture, devient apte à engendrer ce en quoi elle s’inscrit.” Fragmentary in its composition, the spatial metaphor of writing implies a certain ontological paradox: being engendered by the author’s enunciation, the text is at once situated within the spatial imaginary while tandemly being the cause of spatial genesis.
