POLICING THE NORTH AMERICAN BORDERLANDS
The B.S. Johnson Journal is pleased to announce the new theme for our forthcoming issue; “Truth”. Johnson struggled with questions of truth his entire life and we now invite research papers struggling with the same issue. These might entail readings and reassessments of Johnson’s work from contemporary theoretical perspectives, pieces utilising historical or archive research, or new works that have been created based on or responding to Johnson’s work and insights. Questions to be engaged with include:
Much of Walker Percy’s fiction and non-fiction writing is social commentary. At least two novels - Love in the Ruins and The Thanatos Syndrome - may be called dystopian or post-apocalyptic. His numerous essays on race relations, on secular materialism, on misguided “self-help” books in a postmodern world seem to indicate that he suspected 20th century America was a dystopia itself. Additionally, Walker Percy’s personal life included social action in his local community and through the Catholic Church. Proposals addressing the SAMLA 88 theme "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It?" in Walker Percy’s fiction, non-fiction, or life are welcome. Send 300-word abstracts, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dr.
In honor of Walker Percy’s 100th Birthday Anniversary, proposals addressing any topic or area celebrating Walker Percy’s life, his fiction, or his non-fiction are welcome. Send 300-word abstracts, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dr. Karey Perkins, University of South Carolina - Beaufort, at both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by June 7.
The Luso-Afro-Brazilian Studies session seeks proposals related to the literatures and cultures of Portugal, Lusophone Africa, and Brazil for the SAMLA 88 conference to be held in Jacksonville, FL, November 4-6, 2016. Papers that engage with the conference theme of utopia/dystopia in contexts such as exploration, migration, and nation formation in the Portuguese-speaking world are especially encouraged. By June 1st, please submit an abstract of up to 250 words and expected A/V requirements to Katherine Ostrom, Emory University, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For its 25th annual meeting, the British Women Writers Conference invites papers and panel proposals considering the theme of “Generations.” As we look back on a quarter-century of feminist scholarship and practice within British Studies, we want to celebrate those who have defined the British Women Writers Association’s past and nurture those who will shape its future. Of course, even within literary traditions or scholarly networks, generational transitions are rarely ever easy or smooth. Such transitions may be accompanied by paradigm shifts, struggles to be heard, or difficulty letting go. We therefore welcome investigations into the complexities of generational exchange and transition in women’s writing.

The Medieval “Freak Show”: Putting the Monstrous on Display in the Middle Ages
People and creatures perceived as monstrous or wondrous are often put on display for profit or exploitation. At times, this exhibitionism presents itself as “education.” What has popularly been called the “freak show” achieved its height via the emergence of working class entertainments that transformed visual cultures in the nineteenth century, as exemplified in P.T. Barnum’s circus and its sideshows, but also including innovations such as the stereoscope and the panorama, which prepared the rise of cinema and, later, television.
