 The Confluence: Octavia E. Butler at the Intersection of Cultural Critique and Climate Collapse 

September 11-13, 2020

A confluence is the place where two rivers meet. It is a place of not only great energy but great power and creativity. Located at one of the great confluences,  the Twin Cities occupy this place called Bdote – “where two waters come together” – that is sacred to the Dakota people. The Octavia E. Butler Literary Society invites you to join us at this sacred place of power and creativity for the third biennial conference where we will feature work honoring Butler. Our host is St. Catherine University in St. Paul MN.

I INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE TRANSITIONS: IDENTITIES & CULTURES IN MOTION. HE SOUTHERN BORDER: MARGINAL VOICES AND TALES

updated: 
Monday, February 10, 2020 - 4:28pm
Universidad de Cádiz
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 15, 2020

As Gloria Anzaldúa states in her seminal work on identities and borders, Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza (1987), migrants are marked and defined by the open wounds caused by crossing the frontier. Our own culture is defined by the experience of crossing borders. Thus, we feel impelled to consider the consequences of constant and unavoidable transitions that shape us now as much as they have in the past.

Call for papers When Nature Fights Back: Challenges to the Anthropocene and Environmental Narratives X Annual LANGSA Conference

X Annual LANGSA Conference University of Connecticut at Storrs

Saturday, February 29, 2020

Recent attention has been dedicated to the study of environmental narratives that relate to current threats to the survival of the planet: global warming, environmental catastrophes, the extinction of species, massive migration crises, etc. A multidisciplinary approach to the discourses that have shaped our understanding of the human sciences is necessary in order to challenge the anthropocentric logic that has framed discussions on the topic. The binaries of nature and culture, human and non-human, subject and object, need to be reexamined not as the polar opposites in which they have been traditionally articulated, but as part of a larger complexity.
