Re: Extended Deadline 24 April: Words, Music and Marginalisation, University of St Andrews, 1-3 September 2020

Dear colleagues,

Many thanks to those of you who have already sent abstracts through for our conference Words, Music and Marginalisation with the WMA Forum in St Andrews in September 2020.

We appreciate that everyone is operating in a state of uncertainty, and with many more personal, professional and family demands on their time than usual. It is impossible at this stage to predict what travel will look like in September, but we recognise that colleagues are not comfortable making arrangements for future travel until things become clearer.

DEADLINE EXTENDED Economy and Value of Time in Boredom

MLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 31, 2020

The word boredom has been in circulation since Ancient times, in the shape of a variety of synonyms --acedia, taedium vitae, horror loci, melancholy, ennui, spleen-- and bearing a theological stamp, since it was believed to be a demonic sin in the Christian tradition. In modernity, however, for the “enlightened subject” (Goodstein, 4), as a response to social and economic transformations, boredom has become a secular experience concerned with temporality, signifying loss of meaning and feeling of emptiness in the pace of modern life. In critical circles, boredom remains a hybrid phenomenon that brings together a variety of contradictory definitions.

Interrogating Queer Rebelliousness: What, What, Where, When, Why, How?

Friday, March 13, 2020 - 3:58pm
SAMLA - South Atlantic Modern Language Association - Jacksonville, Florida November 13-15 2020
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 15, 2020

This year's SAMLA theme, "Scandal! Literature and Provocation: Breaking Rules, Making Texts," asks us to consider how cultural texts challenge the establishment. From Aristophanes’s inclusive view of same-sex attraction in Plato's Symposium to the seventeenth-century memoirs of the transgender Spanish convent girl-cum-conquistador Catalina de Erauso and the fractured coming out narratives of the 2016 film Moonlight, discussions about queer identities have long been provocative. This year’s Queer Studies panel(s) welcomes submissions on research projects that explore how and why queer identities are seen as radical, rebellious, and revolutionary.
