Prooftexts Special Issue: Jewish Literature/ World Literature January 8, 2015

updated: 
Monday, July 7, 2014 - 12:54pm
full name / name of organization: 
Prooftexts

The transnational turn in Jewish literary scholarship has occasioned a methodological rethinking of Jewish literary studies. The discourse on world literature, with its focus on processes of cross-cultural circulation and translation, offers a cogent paradigm for conceptualizing Jewish literature beyond linguistic and national boundaries. For this special issue of Prooftexts on Jewish Literature/World Literature, we seek papers that address Jewish literary multilingualism, translation, and circulation. Essays should combine theoretical and methodological concerns with readings of Jewish-language texts to illustrate the productive intersections of Jewish literature with the discourse on world literature.

NeMLA Seminar: Identity, Politics, and Universals in Literary Theory and Beyond (30/9/2014: 30-3/4-5/2015)

In recent years, the position that argues that human actions are guided by certain Universals (biological, cognitive, emotive, and moral) that are common to all humanity has been contested. Literary traditions such as poststructuralist thought represented by the views of thinkers like Michael Foucault have seen human identity exclusively as a product of class struggle. However, alternate views represented by Martha Nussbaum and several others have challenged this by claiming that human identity is guided by certain non-coercive universals that determine how human beings identify and respond to society.

The Unheard Voices. The Reformation in Eastern Europe, Nov. 12-14

full name / name of organization: 
Emanuel University of Oradea, "Ethics and Society" Research Center
contact email: 

The purpose of the conference is to present the latest research on people, places and events that are neither well known to the general public, nor featured or debated in the mainstream books or conferences on the Reformation, but which had a local impact on the emergence and development of the Reformation in Eastern Europe, in the fields of religion, politics, social life, culture, and economics.

The conference aims to give a voice, at least to some of the people and events that shaped Eastern Europe throughout the Reformation, and who influenced the ideological development of Europe since that time up to the present day. The main question is: who are the people and which are the events that mattered, but no one knows about?

[UPDATE] Toward an Ecosomatic Paradigm: Disability and the Environment in American Literature; August 1, 2014

updated: 
Thursday, July 3, 2014 - 5:32pm
full name / name of organization: 
Matthew J.C. Cella, PhD [Edited Collection]
contact email: 

I seek contributors to an edited collection focused on the intersection between disability studies and literary ecology, particularly as it plays out in American literature and culture. More specifically, the collection will investigate the role that literary ecology plays in upholding what might be called the ecosomatic paradigm. As a theoretical framework, the ecosomatic paradigm underscores the dynamic and inter-relational (and thereby ecological) process wherein human mind-bodies interface with the places, both built and wild, they inhabit. That is, the ecosomatic paradigm proceeds from the assumption that nature and culture interact in an ongoing, dialectical relationship that has implications for both the human subject and the natural world.
