The College English Association solicits abstracts on the special focus of the 89th SAMLA conference from November 3-5 in Atlanta: “High Art/Low Art: Borders and Boundaries in Popular Culture.” From the selection of singer and songwriter Bob Dylan as the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature last year to the election as President of a former reality-television star, the topic could not be more timely nor seminal.

 Seth, born Gregory Gallant, is one of the seminal alternative cartoonists. His comic Palookaville, which began in 1991, continues today; issue 23 (summer 2017) will complete the serialization of Clyde Fans, twenty years in the making and arguably Seth’s magnum opus. He has produced the seminal It’s a Good Life, If You Don’t Weaken (1996; originally serialized in Palookaville), Wimbledon Green (2005), George Sprott (1894-1975) (2009; originally serialized in the New York Times Magazine), and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists (2011), in addition to numerous shorter strips and illustrations.

Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 27, 2017

The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium invites proposals for panel themes engaging with forms of law, order, disorder and resistance in all aspects of medieval cultures. These sub-themes address a particular aspect of our general theme, and could be the basis for either one or two panels. As a rule of thumb, panel themes should be broad enough to encourage numerous applicants, and interdisciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged.

AFROCENTRICITY IN VISIONARY CONVERSATION WITH BLACK/AFRICAN RADICAL INTELLECTUALISM AND AFRO-FUTURISM

Friday and Saturday, October 20 & 21, 2017

The Wyndham Historic District

Philadelphia, PA

The African world is thriving in spite of bearing witness to dystopic and threatening political, social, and cultural change and upheaval.  Society is responding to reassertions of supremacist thought, ethos, insanity, and regression, and there is a caution to avoid a pessimist trap.  In challenging chronophobia, known as a fear of the future, African people continue to maintain and pursue not only optimum liberation but also a technological awareness updated from past ingenuity to present creative consciousness.
