[UPDATE] June 25th Deadline Extension- Irish Studies Panel at SAMLA

updated: 
Sunday, June 9, 2013 - 6:28pm
SAMLA (South Atlantic Modern Language Association)

In keeping with the theme of this year's conference, we welcome papers that focus on the ways Irish identity, space, and memory are shaped through conventionally understood literary genres (poetry, fiction, drama, memoir) as well as work from related fields, including but not limited to art, critical theory, folklore, and film studies. This panel seeks to address recent trends in scholarship and the ways Irish identity (systemic or individual) and space is constructed and defined.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words to Sarah Dyne, Georgia State University, by the extended deadline of June 25, 2013 at sdyne1@gsu.edu.

The Photographic Moment in Literature; SAMLA 2013; Nov 08-10; Atlanta

updated: 
Friday, June 7, 2013 - 1:34pm
Elizabeth Howie and Tripthi Pillai, Coastal Carolina University

This special session invites papers that explore the interplay of literature and photography, particularly as manifested in the photographical logics operating within the literatures that predate the advent of photography. What is the place of the ocular (the photographical/the photographic image) in literature? How are self-reflexivity, interiority, memory, and subjectivity performed as photographic moments within literature? What does the insertion of a photographic moment suggest in terms of interruptions, digressions, or linear movements within a novel? How does the stillness of a moment in a play borrow or differ from the stasis of a photograph? What, if any, are the coincidences of poetic and photographic lenses?

[UPDATE] Idle/Stasis: Call for Prose, Poetry, Art--deadline extended to June 15

updated: 
Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - 11:39pm
Transverse: A Comparative Studies Journal, Issue 13, University of Toronto

The twinned concepts of idle and stasis have recently been brought to the forefront of political conversations in Canada because of the Idle No More grassroots movement, which is one of the many manifestations of a protest culture encircling the globe. No longer silent in the face of the continuing effects of colonialism and its derivative hierarchical structures, indigenous populations and other citizens are registering their discontent, while fostering networks of solidarity.
