Interférences Littéraires
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Interférences littéraires/Literaire interferenties is a peer-reviewed, international and multilingual open-access journal devoted to the interaction between literature and cultural and societal practices. The word “interference” denotes a situation of unsolicited or even unnecessary intervention, the conjunction of clearly distinct phenomena. If literature, and in particular the reservoir of texts commonly categorized as ‘modern’, has delineated itself and has been projected with a strong sense of autonomy vis-à-vis social, cultural, ideological or scientific discourses and material conditions, neither its production nor its reception ever happens in a vacuum.

Literature's Kinkiest Corners

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018

We are currently seeking 500-word abstracts for an edited collection on kink and other fringe texts (taboo literature, self-published erotica, SM narratives, fan fiction, disavowed fictions, and other marginalized texts). In this project, we define kink broadly to encompass a range of "inappropriate" texts, understanding that kink often refers to non-normative erotic fantasies and experiences. We are interested in contributions that focus primarily on contemporary written texts and do so by engaging theoretical frameworks such as psychoanalysis, queer theory, rhetoric, and feminist theory. One of the interests of this project is an exploration of the ways texts shift in and out of different canons and categories.

2nd Global Conference: Music &... Nationalism
29th to 30th June 2018
Palermo, Italy

The spectre of national anthems being sung at mass events, political rallies and the use of pop music and established musicians providing endorsements at political rallies suggest that the relationship between music and the spirit nationalism is as strong as it has been since its emergence as a feature of 19th century romantic music. This conference aims to bring together interdisciplinary research perspectives on the relationship between music and nationalism.
