[CFP] Powerful and Dangerous: Audre Lorde's Legacy Today - Aug 7 deadline

Wednesday, July 29, 2015 - 3:12pm
Lana Lin/Society for Cinema and Media Studies

The siting of the 2016 SCMS conference in Atlanta (3/30-4/3/16), where the Audre Lorde papers are housed at Spelman College, provides an ideal opportunity to convene a panel that addresses Lorde's investment in the intersections of race, gender, class, ability, age, and power. This panel seeks scholars, media makers, activists, and educators who have made use of the Audre Lorde archive, both at Spelman and at large, to examine the impact of the Black lesbian feminist poet's ideas on the contemporary moment.

NeMLA 47th Annual Convention

La sessione si propone di discutere il processo che dalla Filologia può portare alla Critica letteraria, con particolare attenzione alla metodologia e ai "nuovi" strumenti di lavoro (internet, archivi digitali, ecc.). Ci si interrogherà sulla relazione tra questi due campi di studio: il filologo può o deve essere anche un critico e viceversa? Si sollecitano contributi su studi e lavori conclusi o in corso di svolgimento concernenti il diciannovesimo, ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo. Si prega di inviare una proposta di 250 parole entro il 30 Settembre 2015 a https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/cfp scegliendo la sessione 15888.

The City in Quarantine--abstract due 9/30/15, conference 3/17-20, 2016

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

In William Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton's problematic play Timon of Athens, the fate of Athens hangs in the balance as the eponymous character threatens the city with literal and figurative diseases from outside its walls. Timon thus embodies a nightmarishly pathogenic force, sending forth plagues and venereal diseases to "thatch your poor thin roofs/With burthens of the dead" (V.iii.143-145), even as the city's gates bar his physical entrance. Although Timon of Athens has traditionally been regarded as an anti-corruption allegory, the play thus presents fruitful opportunities for examination through the lens of quarantine and urban containment.

'What Happens Now: 21st Century Writing in English' 4th Biennial International Conference, 27-30 June 2016, University of Lincoln
Conservative Politics/Radical Poetics

The 21st century gets more and more odd. Thomas Picketty claims we are returning to 19th century economic relations between capital and the masses. In Britain we have re-entered conservative politics despite the most blatant bankruptcy of capitalism since the Thirties, but at the same time the potential break up of the United Kingdom and with the European Union would be political developments as structurally decisive as the end of empire or World War I. Much the same is true in Europe and the world where conservative and radical visions seem to hang in the balance.

Love & the Word - AULLA Conference 2016

DEADLINE: Monday the 29th February 2016

Hosted by Victoria University, the Australasian Universities Languages & Literature Association Conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia from 7th-9th December 2016.

The conference theme draws on AULLA's origins as an association of scholars working in fields of philology. Thus we examine both philos (love) and logos (word). How does affection affect words? What do people mean by 'love' and its counterparts in the world's languages? Or perhaps: how does it 'do' those meanings?
