University of North Carolina Wilmington

While it seems as though the Euro-American culture is everywhere globally—from television shows to fast food restaurants, international trade treaties to sanctions and strikes—this conference explores how it actually gets translated, interrogated, adapted, and even re-defined, as it appears in localized contexts across the globe. This conference is interested in scholarship that explores general concerns of global translations of national and regional cultures and subcultures.

Queer at Camp

full name / name of organization: 
Kenneth Kidd & Derritt Mason

The American Camp Association reports some 12,000 summer camps in the United States alone, and there are nearly a thousand more in Canada. While especially popular in North America, summer camp is a global affair. Certain iterations of summer camp loom large in the popular imagination – Scout Camp, band camp, bible camp – but camps engage a staggeringly diverse range of interests and activities, from sports to language learning, computing, forensic science, weight loss, and so forth. Some camps are specialized; some have a general education and/or elective curricular structure.

OXFORD ENGLISH GRADUATE CONFERENCE 3 JUNE 2016: PROGRESS

'When any real progress is made, we learn and unlearn anew what we thought we knew before.'
(Henry David Thoreau)

Throughout history the complex and contested idea of progress has held wide-ranging implications for literature and literary criticism. We see the meanings and consequences of progress translated across world literature, from The Pilgrim's Progress to the Futurist Manifesto; Renaissance Humanism to the Post-Human; from colonialism to postcolonial literature and theory.

[UPDATE] Fugitive Environmentalisms-- Deadline Extended to March 1, 2016

Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association
contact email: 

The Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association invites submission of essays to be considered for a special issue in the environmental humanities. We are seeking submissions that stake out a critical space exploring the possibilities and implications of fugitive readings in environmental criticism. Drawing on the interdisciplinary nature of the environmental humanities, we encourage ways of describing, analyzing, and theorizing that are counter-discursive and slippery in their multivalent uses and applications and are, therefore, uniquely productive, contested, resistant, transformative, or reveal a shared environmental sensibility.

The Routledge Companion to Literature and Food

Dr Lorna Piatti-Farnell and Prof. Donna Lee Brien

This Companion will cover the relationship between food and literature in the broadest sense. In recent years, food studies has developed into a solid and distinctly academic field of studies; the relationship between representational structures –such as literature – and the uses of food metaphors that these make has gained significant interest from the academic community, in interdisciplinary and transnational contexts. 'Literary food studies' can be viewed as a new and emerging field of enquiry, which re-evaluates, rethinks and (re-)discovers the importance of food and eating in understanding the ways we live and communicate.
