Apocalypse, Dystopia, and Disaster in Culture
Area of the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association
37th Annual Conference
February 10-13, 2016 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel

The Apocalypse, Dystopia, and Disaster in Culture Area is calling for papers about anything apocalyptic, dystopic, or disaster-related. This can be in movies, television, literature, graphic novels, or any other cultural examples of disaster, dystopia, or the end.

Once again, this year did not disappoint in these topics, from Mad Max: Fury Road to Insurgent to San Andreas to Between and many, many more. This area is interested in all types of theories, both real world and fictional.

Mystical Theology Network

The relationship between word and image, and the ways in which medieval art (be it visual, textual, or both) operates as a means of expressing the inexpressible, will be explored in a two-day conference held 8th-9th January 2016 at St Hilda's College, Oxford. This interdisciplinary conference will bring together theologians, art historians, and literary scholars to examine the ways in which various forms of artistic expression are used to articulate the mystical or that which cannot easily be spoken.

"Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows."-Shakespeare's The Tempest (2.2)

UC Riverside's (dis)junctions conference invites papers and panels that push at the boundary of contemporary scholarship. Our critical focus, "Strange Bedfellows," is geared specifically toward innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to cultural, literary and theoretical texts. We are looking particularly for scholarship that emerges from the disjunction of incongruent forms, that thrives on the border of the unfamiliar, and that transgresses the boundary of the expected.

Theodicy of Spirituality in Contemporary American Women's Poetry--NeMLA 2016--Abstracts Due September 30, 2015

Scarlett Cunningham/ University of Mississippi

Panel Description:

This panel seeks to emphasize the diversity of women's spiritual experiences by showing how spiritual and religious identity intersect with other vectors of difference such as gender, race, class, age, sexuality, and ability in contemporary American women's poetry. Most religions seek to reconcile the idea of human suffering with the existence of a loving God. However, men have traditionally held a disproportionate amount of power and authority in delineating doctrinal truths regarding theodicy in the world's major religions.
