The Struggle Continues:
Intersectional Activism in the Age of Gender Based Violence and Authoritarian Oppression
Friday-Saturday March 1-2, 2019
In her 1988 book A Burst of Light, Audre Lorde said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare.” The concept of self-care, which arose through the activist practices specifically of marginalized groups, has been increasingly adopted and discussed by health care settings, non-profit organizations, commercial and marketing enterprises, and psychological approaches. National discourse around self-care has increased exponentially since the 2016 presidential election. Yet, few academics have explored the theory, implementation, and impacts of this concept.

Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I'll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,

“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

We would like to invite contributions exploring an intellectual meeting ground between new feminist and queer materialisms and affect theory, environmental humanities, science studies, and many more inter- and transdisciplinary fields. New/feminist materialisms and the affective turn are emerging at a time in need for alternative visions of the world threatened by human exceptionalism, ecological terror(ism), and devastating, extinction-fostering capital flows: they pose the question of how to theorize and practice ethical and decidedly posthuman or rather nonanthropocentric feminisms in the geological era of the (late capitalist) Anthropocene.

4TH ANNUAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE
ON PLACE, SPACE, AND EMBODIMENT
OMAHA, NE, USA
This year (2018) the Bronte Society, centres of Victorian Studies as well as Literature departments across the Anglophone world are commemorating the bicentenary of Emily Bronte's birth with several conferences and events. The three Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, were born in Yorkshire between 1816 and 1820. They all died young, with the longest survivor, Charlotte, passing away in 1855, possibly from tuberculosis (like her sisters) or typhus. However, in their short literary life, the sisters published one volume of poetry and seven novels – many of them as the Bells – which have ensured their presence and influence in the English literary sphere to this day.
The D.H. Lawrence Society of North America is organizing a virtual conference for graduate students, on Saturday, April 13, 2019.
Abstracts are welcome on any topic in D.H. Lawrence studies, including any aspect of his poetry, prose, essays, his circle, modernism, and WWI. We especially welcome papers on Lawrence and the 1920s or Lawrence and New Mexico, in anticipation of the next International D.H. Lawrence conference, which will be held in New Mexico in 2020.
Joyce Writing Disability is a proposed volume of essays on the history, theory, and depiction of disability as it relates to the life and work of James Joyce. Though disability is increasingly a popular topic in modernist studies, there is as yet no book dedicated to disability and/in Joyce. As such, Joyce Writing Disability will seek not to be the last word on the topic, but the first. We seek essays on a variety of topics and intersections, and are especially interested in readings that open novel and unexplored avenues for disability studies and Joyce criticism. Two major university presses have expressed an interest in the volume, and we are looking for contributions from scholars both established and new.
