Pamela Kirkpatrick, University of Arkansas
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 20, 2017

 

MLA, January 2018, New York: Seeking proposals to a non-guaranteed session about kinship terminology or terms of endearment used for friends and foes. For example, in The Song of Roland, characters use sarcasm to describe enemies as friends, and interestingly, demeaning monikers are used to chastise friends. What do these epithets say about the cultural boundaries between friends and enemies in medieval and renaissance literature? Please send 500 word proposal and CV by 20 March 2017 to Pamela Kirkpatrick (kirkpatp@uark.edu ). Also, please email questions or comments. If proposal is accepted, attendant must be an MLA member by 7 April 2017, per MLA guidelines.

CFP NO. 5
"THE AESTHETICS OF POLITICS AND THE POLITICS OF AESTHETICS IN AFTER CAVELL"

Stanley Cavell has described the “new, yet unapproachable America.” These days, America seems as unapproachable as ever. Cavell’s reprise of Thoreau for the twentieth century, where American sins of slavery and the Mexican-American War are trumped by the Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War, was either “politically” effective or it was not.

CFP: WHY WORLD LITERATURE? (Deadline May 15, 2017)

updated: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - 2:27pm
Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 15, 2017

The emergence of ‘world literature’ as a critical framework of reading in literary studies has not only recalibrated older methodologies of comparative and postcolonial literature but has also foregrounded the aspect of circulation and reception of literary works in a transnational context. The emphasis that this method of reading puts on the cross-cultural travels of a literary text is reinforced by the global technology of social media and web 2.0 which promises instant connectedness and conjures a virtual world which is self-contained, even though it reflects and engages with the actual world of the socio-political, outside itself.
