MLA 2020: Early Modern Resilience: Shakespeare and Beyond

MLA 2020: "Early Modern Resilience: Shakespeare and Beyond," Special Session

How does early modern literature portray the resilience of women or other marginalized groups in times of crisis? What strength or power is found in resilience? Is resilience similar to #resist, the experience of domestic violence, or #metoo? How can we understand resilience within feminist criticism, critical race theory, post-colonialism, or other methodologies? How does resilience change our reading (or performance) of a text, and can we begin to theorize the way resilience functions in the early modern world? All texts from the early modern world and all methodologies welcome.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 4, 2019

I am currently looking for a few more essays for the collection on TV Witches. These proposals should NOT be on Sabrina (I have enough essays on Sabrina); all other TV shows are welcome. The new deadline has been extended to Feb 4th. The original CFP is as follows: 



Sabrina: I want freedom and power.

Prudence: He will never give you that. The Dark Lord. The thought of you, of any of us, having both terrifies him.

Sabrina: Why is that?

Prudence: He is a man, isn’t he?

2019 American Studies Association Panel: "Risky Places: Geographies of Race and Risk"

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 8:52am
Jamal Batts & Brittany Meché / UC Berkeley
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 27, 2019

We seek interdisciplinary papers for a proposed panel at the 2019 American Studies Association conference (Honolulu, Hawai'i, November 7-10 2019) investigating the overlapping geographies of race and risk. While scholars have primarily emphasized risk as a modality of liberal governance and a technology of rule, our approach considers the Janus-faced character of risk as possible emancipatory performance—a rejection of propriety—and risk as a key technique through which regimes of surveillance (Browne 2015), calculation (McKittrick 2014; Snorton 2017), and security (Masco 2014) operate.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

Contributions are requested for the special issue 45.1 of Revista de Estudios de Genero y sexualidad (before Letras femeninas) for 2019. This issue will delve into the representation of female disability, based on the artistic and cultural production carried out by women from a transhistorical perspective that encompasses both sides of the Atlantic. Priority will be given to research proposals that study how, in the different periods and cultures of Luso-Hispanics, creative women with and without disabilities have approached the topic of disability, as well as how it has been stigmatized and abused by the patriarchal society.
