The George Saunders Society invites prospective participants for one or two panels at the 2020 American Literature Association conference in San Diego, CA, to be held May 21 to 24, 2020. We are interested in presentations on any aspect of George Saunders’s life and work; in this, our fourth year of activity at ALA, we are particularly interested in papers that challenge or go beyond the most common (particularly religious, ethical, or new sincericist) readings of the author’s work in the critical literature to this point. The topic is therefore open, but possible approaches might include:

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 - 4:44pm
VERGE: STUDIES IN GLOBAL ASIAS
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2019

This open issue invites essays related to the broader project of Verge: Studiesin Global Asias, which showcases scholarship on “Asian” topics from across the humanities and humanistic social sciences, while recognizing that the changing scope of “Asia” as a concept and method is today an object of vital critical concern. Deeply transnational and transhistorical in scope, Verge emphasizes thematic and conceptual links among the disciplines and regional/area studies formations that address Asia in a variety of particularist (national, subnational, individual) and generalist (national, regional, global) modes.

CFP: Genres in Literature (Deadline: Jan 1, 2020)

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 1, 2020

Discussing the epic and the novel, Mikhail Bakhtin refers to a “historical struggle of genres” that underwrites “the establishment and growth of a generic skeleton of literature.” Literature as a diverse discursive domain consists of various forms and genres that shape and functionalize it. There is a thin line between specific literary forms and genres. Is novel a form or genre? If novel is a form, we can think of particular genres of the novel such as gothic, whodunit, comedy, historical drama and so on. On the other hand, if novel is a genre, there are literary forms such as realism, naturalism, pastiche, parody, etc.
