CFP: Sickness and Health in the Era of Trump
Keynote Speaker: Professor John J. McGavin
University of Dundee, April 21st 2018
Now in its second year, Writings from Scotland Before the Union: 2018 is a one-day conference which will continue to explore all areas of literature prior to the Act of Union in 1707.
Hosted by the Centre for Scottish Culture at the University of Dundee, the conference aims to gain a further understanding of how Scotland saw herself in literary terms before formal Union.
Abstracts are welcome on any topic concerning writing from pre-Union Scotland, though some areas of particular interest include the following:
Gender, Sexuality, and Museums, new volume
The Center for the Study of Inequality and Social Justice at Stony Brook University is pleased to announce they will be hosting the 2018 Working-Class Studies Association conference on the campus of Stony Brook University from June 6-9, 2018.
A tradition for the last several years at MELUS, this panel focuses on expressions, representations, critiques, and/or celebrations of religion and/or spirituality in multi-ethnic American literature. We especially welcome presentations that incorporate the conference theme, “TransCulture” (see the general MELUS CFP for a description of the theme), but are open to proposals on any aspect of religion/spirituality in multi-ethnic literature.
