Aviation: The Impact on Time and Space

Call for Papers


The impact of aviation on the 20th and 21st centuries on both time and space has been enormous.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 30, 2017

This panel invites papers on representations of social transformation in the Marvel Universe to be presented at South Central MLA’s 2017 annual convention held October 5-8th in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Presenters should feel free to propose papers on a wide-range of topics. We are especially interested, however, in papers that explore the representation of trauma and/or violence as a necessary part of socially transformative practices. Proposed papers could consider, for instance, the trauma of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s terrigenesis or how Luke Cage’s body—often riddled with bullets—offers a challenge to the “All Lives Matter” movement.

Il sessismo nella lingua italiana, trent'anni dopo Alma Sabatini. Linguaggio, diritto, politica e società

Thursday, January 5, 2017 - 3:10pm
Anna Lisa Somma
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Nel 1987, per iniziativa della Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri, vide la luce "Il sessismo nella lingua italiana", opera curata da Alma Sabatini, all’interno del quale avevano trovato posto le "Raccomandazioni per un uso non sessista della lingua italiana", diffuse alla fine del 1986. L’intero studio era stato concepito per coniugare riflessione teorica e prassi quotidiana, affinché potessero far insieme breccia nel sentire comune, anche e soprattutto grazie all’impegno degli operatori della comunicazione, come dimostra pure l"’Ammissione di colpa e chiamata di correo" di Sergio Lepri – già direttore dell’ANSA – che accompagnava la ricerca.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 1, 2017

Call for Papers: Special Issue, The Comparatist
Topic: Figuring Race
General Editor: Zahi Zalloua (Whitman College)

We welcome contributions that examine the notion of race in comparative studies and literary theory. How do we imagine, represent, and construct race today? What role does race play in the Humanities? How do we talk about race in an ideologically color blind society? How does racial difference relate to other type of differences? Can we foreground race while avoiding both the pitfalls of identity politics and the depoliticization of race by neoliberalism? Topics of interest could include:

Black Lives Matter

Critical Race Theory

Solidarity Movements

MSA 19 Panel: Fascist Rebirth, Modernist Resistance

Wednesday, January 11, 2017 - 2:13pm
Modernist Studies Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Today we witness a resurgence of fascist rhetoric from parties offering various “alternatives” to the multicultural states that have come to characterize Europe and North America. Modernism, of course, is famously entangled with the rise of fascism, these xenophobic movements’ most notorious antecedent, and there is a new urgency to the questions that Griffin (2007), Ravetto (2007), Antliff (2007), and Ben Ghiat (2015) broached in their scholarly work.
