cultural studies and historical approaches
Both Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault took the body as an object of critical inquiry but explored it in divergent ways. This collection of essays, under advance contract with McFarland and Company, will bring together scholars working from Lacanian and Foucaultian perspectives to interrogate the body. Collectively, the papers selected for this volume will aspire to answer, among others, the following questions: how do Lacan and Foucault approach the body, and what new forms of subjectivity emerge when we pay attention to the body? What are we allowed to do to or with our bodies, and what are we allowed to ask others to do to or with our bodies?

Working-Class Studies Beyond the Heartlands
With a growing awareness of class-based inequality, Brexit, and a new willingness to discuss working-class issues, we are pleased to announce that the next conference of the Working- Class Studies Association will be held in the UK in September 2019. In its fifteen-year history, this will be the first time the Working-Class Studies Association will hold its conference outside its heartland of the USA. This conference aims to build and consolidate work being carried out currently in the UK and Europe with the USA and elsewhere in the world.
Many novelists in various national literatures touched upon the theme of an emancipated woman in the long nineteenth century. Imagination, as it is believed, has no borders and is dialogical in its nature. Different voices of great emancipationist writers merged into one influential symphony liberating and awakening consciousness of slaves—males and females. If writers did not support directly or sympathized with the image of an emancipated woman, they did reflect on her place in society and her belonging. World literature allows us to take a closer look at the imagined and real women's lives, at their biographies and reminiscent writing.

The organizers of the 19th Black Issues Conference invite proposals for presentations. The committee invites a broad array of proposals related to Black issues, and especially encourages presentations and creative works on media, activism, and how they intersect. Other areas of study might include: contemporary African American art, politics, race in higher education, social justice, gender, sexuality, and the representation of Black culture. Undergraduate and graduate students are particularly encouraged to present their work. Presentations can take the form of a paper or PowerPoint presentation, a roundtable discussion, an artistic exhibition, or a performance.
