Abstracts (300 words) or completed papers (20 minutes max) are invited for a proposed panel on "Utopia and Apocalypse" at the 2017 Society for Utopian Studies conference in Memphis, November 8-12. For the panel, I will give preference to papers that explicitly explore connections between utopia and apocalypse. I invite examinations of “utopia” in any of its flavors—utopia proper, dystopia, ambiguous or critical utopia, anti-utopia, etc. Papers not chosen for the panel will be forwarded to the general conference submission pool. Please send submissions by midnight EDT on Friday, August 11 to: Gib Prettyman, email@example.com. Apologies for the short notice.

Embodiment in Science Fiction and Fantasy Interdisciplinary Conference
May 18-19, 2018
McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
In her essay,"The Times We’re in: Queer Feminist Criticism and the Reparative ‘Turn,'" Robyn Weigman discusses recent feminist theorizations of affect and time: "with so much in flux and with governments, like people, finding themselves awash in everyday attrition, scholarship that seeks to analyse the condition of the present – both its political comportment and its historical theorisation – has proliferated under a different set of terms: debt, crisis, precarity, bare life, biopolitics, neoliberalism, and empire." Wiegman states that much of this "scholarship attends to the condition of the present through the converging analytics of affect and time" (5).

CALL FOR PAPERS
San Juan, Puerto Rico
February 17-18, 2018
Puerto Rico is considered an "unincorporated” territory, hence the signifier that inspired us.
What does this word evoke? Unincorporated means:
In the introduction to her book The Female Servant and Sensation Fiction, Elizabeth Steere recounts how mid-nineteenth century critics originated the term “kitchen literature” to deride new fictions that appealed to the servant classes. The kitchen, however, has played no small part in English literature of all periods. Conventionally an iconic site of women’s labor, domestic kitchens have been used to cook meals, brew beverages, and even distill medicines and perfumes.
