deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

5th July at Liverpool John Moores University

Keynote Speaker: Dr Chris Warnes (St. John's, University of Cambridge)

It has been over twenty years since the publication of Magical Realism: Theory, History, Community (1995), a collection of seminal essays which challenged the perception of magical realism as a form strictly reserved for Latin American writers. The collection instead repositioned magical realism as an international form used by writers from across the globe and to depict a variety of historical contexts.

Regional Identities & Coastal Communities of the Pacific

updated: 
Saturday, February 24, 2018 - 7:34am
New Zealand Studies Association / University of Aveiro, Portugal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 11, 2018

Papers can consider all topics related to the Pacific and New Zealand, with priority given to papers that address the themes of ‘regional identities’ and/or ‘coastal communities’. We are particularly interested in papers that consider space and place in relation to the coast, beaches and beyond. However, interpretations of the theme are broad and can include national, urban and rural identities, town and country, gender and ethnicity, cultural expressions and local industries, the environment and climate change. The conference fee includes annual membership to the NZSA, which for 2018 includes a twice-yearly journal.

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 9:13am
Book Harushimana
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

We are calling on Black women educators–African Americans, Naturalized Black Americans, and Foreign-born Blacks from Africa, the Caribbean Islands and South America--to bring forth their stories of Paradise Gained and Lost through the meanings that they assign to the 2008 and 2016 elections and, perhaps, related elections that have impacted their role as parents, educators and role models for black children.  We are inviting stories that tell of the greatness of the Mother continent and the invincibility of the African spirit of courage and bravery and how they shaped the authors’ identities and their attitudes towards White domination.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 4, 2018

The contemporary world is undergoing a period of accelerated change which can be attributed to a number of different developments: technological advances, the ubiquity of social media and smartphones, the acceleration of global warming and the resultant environmental disasters, and major political upheavals such as Brexit and the growth of white nationalist movements across the globe. These and other changes create constantly shifting and unstable contemporary environments. In this climate of economic, political and environmental uncertainty, it is important to address the impact on and outcomes of these and other major changes in our contemporary world.
