Urban Outcasts in South Asian Literature: SECOND CALL
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: JANUARY 23, 2015.
Keynote Speaker: Ulrich Baer (NYU)
The image of the river in Latin/o American literature has been multiple and varied. The slow, meandering streams of nostalgia, the raging currents of conflict or the stagnant waters of social decay are just a few of the ways in which the river has become a potent symbol and inspiration to many of the region's writers.

We are also interested in book reviews of pedagogical books and edited collections. We can generally provide a review copy. If one is needed, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lehigh Valley Vanguard is seeking submissions of critical prose which showcase community-oriented and/or activist work that provides social commentary on diverse dimensions of human suffering, such as poverty, marginalization, racism, and political, structural, and gender-based violence. Those accepted will be published in our open-access online journal.
Submissions may take a variety of approaches to this topic: historical, polemical, examination of literary works, book reviews.
We - an international group of students enrolled in the MA Global History at Free University Berlin - would like to inform You about a conference in Global History for bachelor and graduate students, April 24-25 in Berlin. (We will be able to cover some travel and accommodation expenses.) Our idea is to provide a venue for ambitious students to spread and discuss their projects with a larger audience. This conference presents a very good opportunity to broaden perspectives ahead of future challenges. We accept texts written in English, Spanish, French and Italian, and the discussions will be held in English.
We seek interdisciplinary papers for a proposed panel investigating "the black mortuary," an analytic that considers the place of the black deceased within cultural, economic, and intellectual practices. Informed, in part, by Vincent Brown's groundbreaking text The Reaper's Garden: Death and Power in the World of Atlantic Slavery, this panel will explore the conceptual and constitutive work that racial death performs. We invoke a popular African American colloquialism, "who's got the body," to locate the contested ownerships of the (deceased) black body. And we ask, how might the corporeal remnants of blackness foreshadow new possibilities for myriad forms of oppositional action?

Identity and Materialism: Reading the Space between Persons and Things
University of Alabama in Huntsville Graduate Student Conference
April 10-11, 2015
Keynote speaker: Dr. Priscilla Wald (Professor of English and Women's Studies at Duke University, editor of American Literature)
Conventional deployments of the term "sustainability" emphasize "avoiding the long-term depletion of natural resources," as the Oxford English Dictionary defines this word. However, the emergent idea of "comprehensive sustainability" considers the so-called natural environment and human politics in equal measure and means not only reconciling preservation and development but also achieving social justice and equality. Does this altered definition of sustainability mark or require a profound shift in perceptions of cities? Or might we trace concepts of sustainability in past ideas about cities?
This project is at a matured stage and under consideration by Sage. Most of the contributions/chapters are ready at hand. However, there is still room for a couple of more contributions. Please send in an abstract of about 300 words to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible and until 26th Jan 2015. The abstract should be relevant to the concern of the project, the abstract of which is furnished below. Those selected will have to submit their chapter in a couple of weeks. Therefore, contributors who intend to start writing from scratch are discouraged.
