DEADLINE APPROACHING—CFP for ALA panel—Sense of Place in American Modernist Poetry and Visual Art

updated: 
Friday, April 7, 2017 - 4:00pm
American Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2017

This panel explores the sense of place as part of the indigenous language of American artistic production of Modernism in the context of the European avant-garde. Though U.S. poets and artists were influenced by the formal techniques of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, they were also determined to search for the essence of an expressive language that defined its authenticity as opposed to European foreignness. One of their avenues of research was the exploration of the distinctive features of the American soil as a means of contributing novel aspects to modern aesthetics. The genuine character of the environment is closely linked to the strong attachment to rural or urban spaces and the value they acquire for the observer.

Imagining the Post-Apocalypse

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 8, 2018

The genre of apocalyptic literature has long been associated with times of crisis and distress.  Perhaps one of the most important examples in the Western tradition, the Biblical Book of Revelation, was written as a response to the horrible persecution of early Christians in the Roman Empire.  Since that time, authors and film-makers have turned to imaginations of apocalypse, the end of the world, and life after the collapse of contemporary social structures to take on a host of questions and concerns.  The prevalence of post-apocalyptic literature and film in recent decades has forced literary and cultural studies scholars to examine this cultural mode in a new way.

UPDATE: Deep Learning & Shifting Paradigms in the Humanities

MMLA--Cincinnati
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 15, 2017

Humanities have long since recognized the importance of critical reading and thinking, or the ability for students to engage in higher-order thinking skills to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate texts and ideas.  With the growing decline of interest in the humanities and so many students now enrolling in colleges for more vocational ends, there is an emerging shift away from in‐depth reading/critical dialogue in both college and American culture.  Thus, many students now enter college with fewer critical tools that we once took for granted and that once made humanities engaging.   How do we approach this new cultural/student paradigm?  Are there more avenues of approach than simply resisting or easing up on expectations/requirements/objectives?  P

UPDATE: Animals in Literature and Film

updated: 
Friday, April 7, 2017 - 3:57pm
MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 14, 2017

This year’s MMLA Animals in Literature and Film panel invites papers engaging in tensions of “human” and “animal” found within a variety of ancient textualities related to the broad field of animal studies. In ancient Greek and Roman society, animals serve important roles, often as a medium in religion, as symbolic function in Greco-Roman mythology, and as poetic symbol in ancient oral tradition and later written literature. Often, animals are given titular roles, and they carry strong symbolic function in the narrative, whether the narrative is oral, written, or artistic.
