Raul B. Moreno, University of South Dakota, for Western Literature Association, Reno, NV, Oct. 14-17, 2015

Ahead of this fall's 50th anniversary conference of the Western Literature Association, which coincides with the release of a feature-length documentary, Oregon filmmaker Ian McCluskey's Les Voyageurs Sans Trace (Mountainfilm, 2015), this panel's organizer seeks proposals for both critical and creative works that engage the story of the so-called French Trio of 1938. Alternatively, this panel may engage similar narratives of North American river-running, early outdoor recreation in the West, or other formative adventures marked by the elusive "traces" of bygone journeys—especially those fueled by "free-spirited risk-taking." For context, the following is adapted from the filmmaker's synopsis:

Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens
when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign?
When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and
fatherhood?
Can we undomesticate kinship?

The Centre for Textual Studies and The Centre for Adaptations, De Montfort University

Reflecting on the seismic cultural and political shifts of his own time, Francis Bacon pinpointed 'printing, gunpowder, and the compass' as the technological drivers which had 'changed the appearance and state of the whole world'. Bacon's identification of communicative (print), violent (gunpowder) and technological (compass) forms of cultural expression and exchange as world-shaping continues to resonate, shaping the production and interpretation of texts.

Society for the Study of Southern Literature

SSSL's meeting in Boston will be the first the organization has held in a location north of the Mason‐Dixon line. Ironically, in many ways this has never mattered less, as Southern literary studies' formative focus on regional difference and distinctiveness has been retrained to take in a broader view of the South's reciprocal material and imaginary relations with the US North, other regions, the nation, and transnational permutations of North/South dynamics.
