THE BURNEY SOCIETY OF NORTH AMERICA 2017 CONFERENCECALL FOR PAPERS "PLACING THE BURNEYS"                                                                     NOVEMBER 2-3, 2017, PITTSBURGH, PA 

The Burney family is strongly associated with various cities such as King's Lynn, London, Bath, Brighton, Paris. The family's many talents flourished in urban settings.
Geographical place mattered to the Burney family. But so did other placements: social, political, and class. Moreover, critical placement in Frances's time and in our own has been essential to crafting different versions of Burney.

Inspired by the Burney's ties to geography, the Burney Society of North America presents "Placing the Burneys."

Happiness - A special issue of Writing from Below

Writing from Below
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 29, 2017

Emergent research into happiness is still largely situated in fields such as sociology, psychology, and neuroscience. Traditionally the uncontested domain of the Humanities, the question of “How should we live?” is too rarely approached in contemporary literary and cultural studies. Indeed, even in a thriving field such as affect studies, research still largely focuses on negative emotions, ugly feelings (Ngai), shame (Probyn), paranoia (Sedgwick), failure (Halberstam), and the cruelty of optimism (Berlant). But perhaps the critical tide is turning. Scholars are beginning to theorise the end of our well-rehearsed “hermeneutics of suspicion,” and conjecturing what comes after (Felski).
