CFP: When Nature Strikes Back (3/1/07; MLA '07)

Monday, November 13, 2006 - 4:13am

When Nature Strikes Back

(MLA panel arranged by the Association for the Study of Literature
and the Environment)

Proposals are invited for presentations that explore how literary
texts (including film) depict or personify nature's retribution for
human attempts to control, change, or harm the land.

For example, how does the environment create an inhospitable
situation for humans that either appears natural (hurricanes, West
Nile Virus, Avian Flu, Mad Cow disease) or supernatural (the flood in
Their Eyes Were Watching God)?

How does "nature" have agency in literature and film?

Submit 300-word abstracts by March 1, 2007 to Sarah McFarland at

CFP: Literature *on* the Body (11/17/06; PCA/ACA, 4/4/07-4/7/07)

PCA/ACA national conference organizers have indicated a strong
interest in my proposed panel, titled "The Story on the Body:
Textual Tattoos and the Corporeal Canvas".

Panel Description:

Whereas Melville's Queequeg is one of American literature's earliest
fictional tattooed characters, it is Hawthorne's Hester who upends
one of the conventions of the body in literature: Her scarlet "A"
reminds us of the role of her body in the novel, but it is the
adulterous story told on her body that positions Hester herself as a
text to be read.

CFP: Staging Race, Staging Place: The Local and the Diasporic (11/20/06; ATHE, 7/25/07-7/26/07)

The Performance Studies Focus Group (PSFG) of the
Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE)
invites paper submissions for its 5th annual
preconference, entitled "Regeneration and Return:
Performance Studies in New Orleans," to take place
July 25-26. As generations of performance studies
scholars turn – and return – to New Orleans, we seek a
variety of proposals that address the panel topic
described below. While the city of New Orleans is
central to many of the questions presented here, we
welcome scholarship that employs various methodologies
and geographic points of entry.
