TRANS-AM :: Losing/Becoming Self
Individuals from around the globe travel to Louisiana early in the year to participate in Mardi Gras celebrations. Masks, costumes and reverie encourage participants to shed certain prefigured aspects of identity in order to become something new. Much of the excitement these traditions allow is rooted in the idea that one can undergo a personal, transformative experience by relinquishing a prefigured sense of self.

To commemorate the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo and the lasting impact of the Napoleonic Wars upon the history of militarism, submissions are welcomed for 'Military Masculinities in the Long Nineteenth Century', an interdisciplinary conference held at the University of Hull on the 20th and 21st May 2015. We welcome papers from scholars across the humanities on the topic of nineteenth-century 'military' manliness. The conference will encompass a range of themes relating to notions of gender, war and empire, exploring the ways in which nineteenth-century society responded and reacted to ideas of militarism and mobilised manhood.

April 1-4, 2015 – New Orleans, Louisiana

The Medievalism in Popular Culture Area (now the combined areas of Arthurian and Other Medievalism) accepts papers on all topics that explore either popular culture during the Middle Ages or transcribe some aspect of the Middle Ages into the popular culture of later periods. These representations can occur in any genre, including film, television, novels, graphic novels, gaming, advertising, art, etc. For this year's conference, I would like to encourage submissions on some of the following topics:
A Journal of Interesting Fictions, Interested Criticism
Wreck Park is a double-blind, peer reviewed publication run out of Binghamton, New York. The journal publishes prose, poetry, criticism, and interviews, and is particularly interested in conceptual frameworks and developments that set to disrupt canonical and standardized discourses of the contemporary academic and literary landscapes. The journal welcomes authors, poets, researchers, and thinkers whose work reflects an interrogation of engendered norms and traditions within societies, cultures, intellectual circles, and beyond.
ACLA 2015 Conference, Seattle, WA (March 26-29)
Writing a text as if it were a translation creates a specific kind of fiction: it overlays the act of authorship with an invented author, and the original text with an invented original in a different language, aimed at a different audience. Original translation does not (only) invite readers to imagine a fictional world, but to imagine a fictional original version of the very text they read.
Epasa Moto is now accepting papers for it next issues.
Epasa Moto (New Series), an official bi-annual journal of both the Faculty of Arts and the Advanced School of Translators and Interpreters of the University of Buea, is a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary scholarly journal of arts, letters and the humanities. It publishes original, well-researched papers, review essays, interviews, résumés, and commentaries, which offer new insights into the various disciplines in the arts, letters and the humanities. Focus is on issues about Africa and the African Diaspora but comparative works from Western and other cultures designed to enhance the vitality of humanistic studies in Africa are acceptable.
Twelfth Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference
March 12 & 13, 2015
Imagining the Ideal Body: A Graduate Conference on the Politics and Poetics of Perfection.
In a 2006 Slate Magazine column, Stephen Metcalf asks, "Why is Beloved Beloved?" Why, almost twenty years after publication, does Beloved keep reappearing on the foreground of literary consciousness? Orientating ourselves on Morrison's choice to reimagine and reinvent the story of Margaret Garner, we can similarly ask how the continual haunting of infanticide in Beloved is a formal innovation that interrogates the place of Motherhood (and particularly black Motherhood) in both a slave and neo-slave era.
