REMINDER: NEMLA 2018: Reading and Writing the Body in the Anthropocene

Two trends in ecocritical approaches to narrative form the basis of this proposed session on Reading & Writing the Body in the Anthropocene. The first is the proliferation of the term Anthropocene itself, which not only attempts to name an epoch but also seems to have become a kind of shorthand for a constellation of political, social, scientific and economic concerns related to our understanding of human impact on the environment. The second trend is the so-called “material turn” in the environmental humanities, a shift that, as Serenella Iovino and Serpil Oppermann observe, has brought “increasing attention” to the imbrications of meaning, narrative and material realities in the larger conversation on literature and the environment (Iovino 550).

Childhood and MaterialityWelcome to Childhood and Materiality, the VIII Conference on Childhood Studies in Finland! The Conference will be held on May 7- 9, 2018 at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. Confirmed keynote speakers:  - Leena Alanen (University of Jyväskylä) - Ivar Frønes (University of Oslo) - Nick Lee (Warwick University) - Ida Wentzel Winther (University of Aarhus) The theme of the 2018 conference, Childhood and Materiality, is deliberately wide-ranging and designed to invite scholars to explore materiality and childhood across a broad spectrum. We hope to inspire lively debates from different disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives about many aspects of childhood and materiality.

Thinking the Global with Literature (journal special issue)

New Global Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

For this literary-focussed issue of the New Global Studies journal we invite proposals for essays on any aspect of literature’s engagement with ideas of the global, from the ways in which literature’s conceptual reach may help us to think the possibilities of the planetary, to how the global literary marketplace can act as a barometer for shifting cultural norms.

The central question that this special issue poses is: how does literature help us to conceptualize the global? Secondary to this, the issue asks how literature, literary theory, and literary movements and networks may help us to shape, observe, and define what Bruce Mazlish called the ‘emerging global civil society’.

With the landmark establishment of the Southeast Asian chapter of the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE) in August 2016, it is both timely and crucial for member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to assess their literary and cultural artifacts from an ecocritical perspective.
