We welcome proposals for papers and panels on all aspects of narrative in any genre, period, discipline, language, and medium.

In The Production of Space, Henri Lefebvre describes the city as "a production and reproduction of human beings by human beings." This conference aims to explore the poetics of (non)urban spaces and the city as a catalyst for self-making and -unmaking in the various localized manifestations of the self in literature and art. We envision metropolitan, (post)industrial, rural, etc. spaces as socially inflected images with the performative self at the core of their becoming.

As popular genres, mystery and detective fiction reflect a wide range of changes in society in contemporary works, but they also have a venerable classic tradition. Submissions are welcomed that address mystery and detective fiction from both ends of this spectrum and every point in between.
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 11/15/15!
Submissions are welcomed that apply disability studies in any area of cultural, historical, or literary research, or that apply disability studies in conjunction with another theoretical approach, such as queer studies, feminist or gender studies, issues of diversity, and so on. Work addressing all media and cultural contexts (literature, TV, film, games, social media/web media, laws, social and cultural practices, politics, and so on) from a disability studies or combined approach is welcome.
The turmoil of the new millennium has given rise to a plethora of uncertainties about both the present and the future, which find their reflections in a whole spectrum of conventions characteristic of contemporary popular culture – from the gothic to noir and horror to psychedelic, cyberpunk, or post-apocalyptic. Influences of such dark aesthetics can be traced in numerous depictions of California across a range of media: literary fiction, music, television, film, comic books, graphic novels, and video games. California is one region whose historical constitution as well as cultural renderings make it a unique space to confront the unknown.
