The William Dean Howells Society welcomes submissions for two panels at the 2015 American Literature Association conference in Boston in May 2015.
Panel 1: A Radical Howells
Both popular and scholarly press has been confronting the changing role of higher education, from Frank Donoghue's Last Professor to Henry Giroux and Kostas Myrsiades's collection Beyond the Corporate University. Technology, economic shifts, and cultural-existential needs change roles for faculty, students, and administration. Many incoming scholars face a "brave new world" of increased adjunct positions, declining tenure, MOOCs, reduced pure research, and students who may not fit traditional models. Finding a new home in this shifting world may prove difficult or exciting, depending on the outlook.
This panel considers the twin roles of accumulation and circulation in the reproduction of capitalism, with a focus on forms of accumulation that inhibit capital's life-cycle. As David Harvey argues, capital is 'value in motion' and the cessation of movement produces crises. This panel is especially interested in the figure of the house as a type of property that has ceased to circulate or generate profitable surplus. We welcomes papers that address resistant or unproductive houses in American literature, film, popular culture, and history, including but not limited to dream houses, palaces, haunted houses, abandoned and foreclosed homes.
The Journal of Comics and Culture, a new, peer-reviewed, annual academic journal to be published by Pace University Press, announces its first call for papers.
Forgiveness and Reconciliation: Probing the Boundaries
The Forgiveness Project
Sunday 10th May – Tuesday 12th May 2015
Call for Presentations:
Forgiveness and reconciliation are two separate, yet intertwined areas of study, analysis, teaching and practice. Each can be developed alone, but each is more strongly engaged when applied toward the other. Each is both a personal, and yet also a social, process of reflection and action.
Note: The Deadline has been extended until 11 February 2015!
