ethnicity and national identity
Boston University’s American and New England Studies Program is proud to announce a call for papers for its upcoming Graduate Student Conference to be held on April 13, 2019 in Boston, MA.
This conference’s theme, “Framing Narratives,” asks people to think through the establishment, circulation, and contestation of the stories that "frame" American life. What stories give shape to, constrain, border, bolster, or animate American visions of selfhood and community? These might be literal stories (or literal frames!), but could also be some of the unspoken, but demonstrably real narratives that shore up national identity.

Borders, Intersections and Identity in the Contemporary Short Story in English is a conference organised by the Research Project Intersections: Gender and Identity in the Short Fiction of Contemporary British Women Writers (FEDER/AEI – FEM2017-83084-P) and the Research Group Discourse and Identity (GRC2015/002, GI_1924) in affiliation with the ENSFR (European Network for Short Fiction Research). The conference is to be held at the Faculty of Philology, University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain, on 23 and 24 May, 2019.
The world has started to change drastically and everything seems to be a ganie of chance, as higher powers and accountability are amok. The more changes occur, the more everything seems to be going in a circle. The games, sins and powers, like the Mafia, have and continue to shape societies. This is a time when we are faced with looking to the past for potential answers and at unlikely sources for guidance. The goal for this conference is to examine these three tenets and create a conversation about Latin American and Iberian literature from all centuries and genres where either one or all have shaped people, places and beliefs. Ultimately, what was the result and what answers and guidance can be found?
