Call for Papers: Francophone Louisiana’s International Relations (April 1, 2018)

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 9:30am
American Council for Québecois Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Though often represented as a marginalized or isolated region of the Francophone world, on the one hand, as well as distinct from the rest of the United States, on the other, Louisiana has been situated for more than three centuries at the crossroads of countless cultural, linguistic, and institutional exchanges. Alongside these realities highlighted in recent historiography, contemporary efforts to promote French and Francophones cultures of Louisiana have benefited from numerous international partnerships. In order to explore the international relations and transnational dynamics that have shaped Louisiana from the colonial period until now, we are pleased to accept abstracts for presentations relevant to Francophone Louisiana.

Trans(form)ing Queer: The 11th Annual DC Queer Studies Symposium
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 17, 2017

In 2016, a viral The New York Times op-ed by political scientist Mark Lilla called for “The End of Identity Liberalism,” the political formation putatively at the root of Donald Trump’s election. The author claimed the U.S. must enter a “post-identity liberalism” in order to avoid the rampant fascism of modernity. He emphasizes majoritarian logics in order for progressives to center “the issues that affect a vast majority of them” as focusing on identity “can drive potential allies away,” providing the example of bathrooms being tiresome for (cisgender) voters to hear about.

#Resist: Protest and Resistance Media in Brexit Britain and Trump-era USA

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 9:05am
Centre for Media Research, and the Arts and Humanities Research Institute Ulster University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017


We invite papers that explore protest and resistance in relation to Brexit Britain and the Trump-era United States. We are interested in media created in response to these seismic periods of political change, media created in the period leading up to them, and media that more broadly deals with themes related to populism, politics, and power. As well as discussing media that can be seen as protest or resistance, this event will consider media forms that fail to resist, or those that merely hint at protest. In doing this we can also consider the responsibility of media creators to engage in and respond to political shifts and crises.
