4th Annual Meeting of the European Beat Studies Network (EBSN)
28-31 October 2015, Université Libre de Bruxelles
Papers are invited for the 4th Annual Meeting of the European Beat Studies Network. In keeping with the inclusive spirit of the EBSN, we are open to submissions of scholarly papers, panels, and roundtables, as well as artistic/creative dialogues and performances devoted to any aspect of the Beat Generation.
Papers that theorize a construction of polylingual literary history in local, national, and global contexts are invited to imagine a manifesto for a transnational and transregional comparative literary historiography for this special session of MLA 2016 at Austin. We aim to examine literary historiography that takes into account more than one language tradition. Examples include world literary history, regional or imperial literary histories, literary histories of nations with a variety of literary languages (e.g., Belgium, Canada, India, Switzerland, the US), and histories that attempt to incorporate dialect with official versions of "a" language, or oral with written forms of literature.
In collaboration, The Western Literature Association and The Society for the Study of the Multi-Ethnic Literature of the United States invite proposals that bring together texts, broadly conceived, of multicultural futurism with the scholarly aims of the WLA, particularly as they involve issues of colonialism and resistance to the colonization of depictions of the future. Possible subgenres include alternative history, science fiction, speculative fiction, slipstream, new weird, and fantasy. Multicultural futurisms include Indigenous futurism, Afrofuturism, Chican@/Latin@ futurism, and Asian-American futurism.
Submission deadline extended!

Romania stands apart from other Eastern European countries with respect to its Jewish ethnic minority. Before the Second World War, 800,000 Romanian Jews lived and thrived especially in the towns and cities of the country at the time; after 1945, more than half of the Jewish population was exterminated, and 350,000 more would eventually emigrate to Israel with the "help" of the communist authorities in the 1960s and 1970s. Today, the Romanian-Jewish community totals barely 10,000 people, the lowest number in Eastern Europe.
