MLA Forum on Transdisciplinary Connections between History and Literature

The Forum on Transdisciplinary Connections between History and Literature is soliciting papers on the topic of historical approaches to "writing resistance" or "writing rebellion". We construe the topic broadly to encompass the narrative construction of historical incidents of resistance, but also the practice of writing history as a form of resistance, or, in yet another vein, the resistance to historico-literary approaches in our discipline. Papers that problematize the location of historical practice (Global North or South, for example) are also of interest. Furthermore, we welcome papers that address different media, including film and the digital, as well as papers that address material from a broad historical span.

Sultan Qaboos University

Connecting the Dots in a Glocalized World 2016 will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas in the four main disciplines of language, linguistics, literature and translation. As the title for the conference suggests, the aim is to highlight the relationship between global themes and local practices. The focus thus is on the under-examined interactions that occur as globalization takes on negotiated forms in different contexts.

Crystal O’Leary-Davidson / Middle Georgia State University

Monsters remain powerful creatures for what they are and what they represent. Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures creep across our television and movie screens and the pages of our books. Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. They are Other. They are Us. This panel will explore the literal monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications. Please submit a 250-300 word abstract, a brief bio, and any A/V needs by May 6, 2016 to
