I am seeking manuscripts to complete an edited collection, _Toward an Ecosomatic Paradigm: Disability and the Environment in American Literature_, which is focused on the intersection between disability studies and literary ecology. The collection is currently under contract with Lexington Press, and I am looking to add a chapter or two that explores the collection's theme with a particular focus on twentieth-century American literature.

[UPDATE] CFP--Transnational Cityscapes--Edited Collection (Abstracts due December 16)

Call for Papers
Transnational Cityscapes

We invite essays for an upcoming collection that utilize transnational approaches to theorize city space. Accepted essays will offer literary and cultural analyses that encourage us to think of cities, in all of their complexity, as sites of transnational, transactional engagement. In taking this approach, we hope to demonstrate how cities, which are increasingly extending and challenging boundaries of place, provide sites for complicating our understandings of citizenship, nationality, and the nation.

English Studies and the Marketplace, 4th International Conference, 19- 20 February, 2016

updated: 
Thursday, October 15, 2015 - 4:02am
Department of English, East West University Dhaka, Bangladesh

The all- incorporating yet inequitable disposition of the global marketplace, facilitated by the neoliberal ideologies of profit maximization, have impacted substantially on all academic disciplines in increasingly conspicuous ways. Consequently, English studies has found itself precariously poised between the values it has traditionally transmitted to its graduates and the instrumental demands of the marketplace. There is friction between, on the one hand, the humanistic outlook that it has cultivated for generations now, and, on the other, the dictates of the job market and the relentless pressure exerted by forces of capitalism on the education sector.
