Much research on motherhood has been published in the past eighteen years (e.g. Ruddick, 1995; O'Reilly, 2007; Kinser, 2008 & 2010; Klein & Chernick, 2011; Crittenden, 2010), suggesting an increased interest in and visibility and acknowledgement of feminism and the topic of motherhood. The literature is concerned with the invisibility of mothers and the labor of caregiving or "motherwork." Specifically, contemporary literature on motherhood is embedded in post-colonial and transnational scholarship in which motherhood scholars like Ruddick, Klein, and O'Reilly articulate "a new economy of collective caregiving and mutual exchange" (Klein, 2012). The works also reflect the changing structure of the family (e.g.

'When […] does occupation become possession? Who has a right to occupy what space? Who must work for whom? What happens in our society to those who can't—or simply won't—work? What obligations do we have to those who prefer not to fit into the system, or run on the hamster's wheel?' Jonathan D. Greenberg.

The fractured, multiple modernities that constitute our world are increasingly in conflict with each other. It is crucial that we explore the ways in which the commonalities shared by many modern societies are shot through with differences in the ways societies understand themselves, their relationships with each other and with the past. Market forces, 'civil society', media, state and transnational apparatuses interact within historically specific milieus shaped by nationhood, peoplehood, religion, ethnicity, race, caste, class and indigeneity to create complex trajectories of modernity.

Our theme for the 2015 interdisciplinary SWES conference is "Transitions" and what that means to the disciplines we work in - across English, the Humanities, Arts, Business, Politics, Sciences, Social spheres, and Technology. The concept is often relevant to scholars in many fields and especially to those whose work straddles the boundaries of one or more disciplines.
Studies in the Novel welcomes proposals for its Fall 2016 special issue on any topic pertaining to the novel, from its origins to the present. Previous special issues have focused on a specific author (David Foster Wallace, Willa Cather) or on a particular category, subgenre, or theme (South African Novel, terrorism, the Graphic Novel). However, we welcome proposals that take a more innovative approach to the tried and true focus on individual novelists or subgenres.

Don DeLillo Society
2015 American Literature Association Annual Conference.
May 21-24, 2015.
At this point in his career, Don DeLillo occupies a fascinating position in literary history, between modernist experimentation and the after of postmodernism, between the wide cultural changes of the immediate postwar decades and the similarly wrenching shifts of the 2000s, a widely-taught author in the Program Era who has never held an academic position, a darling of the high theory moment whose work continues to be relevant.
For a panel at the 2015 ALA sponsored by the Don DeLillo society, proposals are invited for papers that look at any aspect of DeLillo's influences and his influence.
