Queer Poetics at PAMLA 2015 - 11/6-8

Monday, May 4, 2015 - 6:37pm
Ryan Sullivan, UC Riverside

This panel seeks papers that consider what it might mean to think about poetics in relation to queer studies—specifically scholars who are working with queer studies in conjunction with historical poetics, the history of poetic criticism, and lyric theory. Rather than papers that read poetry by queer writers or read queerness in poetry, this panel is looking for work that thinks more about what it means to write poetry as a queer person, about how that poetry circulates in the world, and how that poetry is read and received. Keeping with the conference theme, papers that think about poetics in relation to queer questions of time, temporality and history are particularly encouraged.

The Food Issue / La bouffe en question; September 25, 2015

Sunday, May 3, 2015 - 9:07pm
Transverse journal Centre for Comparative Literature, University of Toronto

With the recent trends in dietary choices and food preparation techniques, we are constantly bombarded with statements that point fingers at our eating habits. We are told that we are what we eat! The rise of awareness to vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free lifestyles, as well as the prevalence of fair trade campaigns, have rendered the slogan so ubiquitous that it runs the risk of metamorphosing into a dead metaphor. As such, for Transverse Issue 15, we want to challenge the assumption that inevitably binds the product and the consumer into a one way relationship, and focus on the active roles food plays within cultural spaces.

Australian Feminist Studies

Australian Feminist Studies (Routledge/Taylor & Francis) plans to publish a themed issue focusing on Germaine Greer in 2016.
