This edited volume marking the centennial of Sholem Aleykhem's death (May 1916), will explore the writer's vast contributions to Yiddish literature through comparison with authors of other national literatures. The aim of the collection is to analyze the work of this foundational Yiddish writer in comparative context in order to bring to light hitherto unexplored aspects of his achievements. Often called "the Jewish Mark Twain" – due to similar writing style and use of pen name – Sholem Aleykhem's favorite writers spanned the spectrum of world literature –

ACCUTE 2016 (Calgary, 28-31 May 2016); submission deadline 1 November 2015
contact email: 

This panel surveys and celebrates examples of women in collaboration, also taking into account some of the possible challenges associated with women in partnership. How do women's groups or communities handle differences in sexuality, ability, race, ethnicity, and religion among members? What does it mean to be women in collaboration in the Canadian city recently voted worst for women (Edmonton), or the city voted best (Québec City), or the city ranked exactly in the middle (Hamilton)? How have women's communities been depicted in various media, and how have collaborators presented themselves? Submissions should be in keeping with ACCUTE's broad interest in English studies, and work on any time period is welcome.

Being the first specialized conference on Literature and Cinema, this conference aims to attract the attention of scholars and readers from different countries in order to exchange professional ideas and give critical comments on the diversity, versatility, and global facet of cinema using literary adaptations. The beginnings of cinema in the early 1900's gradually led to a close affiliation between literature and cinema. Cinema and literature although very different are yet related to one another and cinema can now play a pivotal role in the popularization of literary texts, novels or plays.

24th Biennial European Conference on South Asian Studies (ECSAS), University of Warsaw, July, 2016

"Peripheral Modernity and the South Asian Literary-World" is a conference panel, jointly held by Sourit Bhattacharya (University of Warwick) and Priyanka Basu (SOAS, London), at the 24th Biennial European Conference on South Asian Studies (ECSAS), to take place at the University of Warsaw, Poland, July 27-30, 2016. Here is the proposal in short and long abstracts:

Short Abstract
How has South Asian literary and artistic work responded to the recent crisis in capitalist world-system? Papers sought that take "peripheral modernity" as analytical framework and focus on literary form, space, rights and activism, economic crisis, global literary marketplace, and comparativism.

Long Abstract

'When shall we live if not now?': Reassessing Shirley Jackson

Shirley Jackson's work is currently experiencing a much deserved and long overdue critical and popular reassessment. Except for The Haunting of Hill House and the much-anthologized "The Lottery," Jackson's work has only seen sporadic scholarly activity. But with this year's publication of Let Me Tell You and a new biography set to be released in 2016, a reevaluation of Jackson's influential yet overlooked novels, plays, essays, and memoirs is more pertinent than ever. To that end, the theme of this proposed panel on Jackson's work is open-ended although preference will be given to scholars engaging with Jackson's lesser-known works.
