CALL FOR PAPERS
for the 25th Annual English Language and Literatures Conference
to be held at the University of St. Francis in Joliet, IL on Saturday, November 12, 2016
Featuring poet Roger Reeves as keynote speaker
Much of Walker Percy’s fiction and non-fiction writing is social commentary. At least two novels - Love in the Ruins and The Thanatos Syndrome - may be called dystopian or post-apocalyptic. His numerous essays on race relations, on secular materialism, on misguided “self-help” books in a postmodern world seem to indicate that he suspected 20th century America was a dystopia itself. Additionally, Walker Percy’s personal life included social action in his local community and through the Catholic Church. Proposals addressing the SAMLA 88 theme "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It?" in Walker Percy’s fiction, non-fiction, or life are welcome. Send 300-word abstracts, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dr.
In honor of Walker Percy’s 100th Birthday Anniversary, proposals addressing any topic or area celebrating Walker Percy’s life, his fiction, or his non-fiction are welcome. Send 300-word abstracts, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dr. Karey Perkins, University of South Carolina - Beaufort, at both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by June 7.

In Past and Present (1843), Thomas Carlyle states, “The condition of England, on which many pamphlets are now in the course of publication, and many thoughts unpublished are going on in every reflective head, is justly regarded as one of the most ominous, and withal one of the strangest, ever seen in this world.”

Papers on Language and Literature is seeking proposals for special issues on subjects including but not limited to
PLL is a generalist publication that is committed to publishing work on a variety of literatures, languages, and chronological periods. We accept proposals year-round. We are a quarterly and expect to publish a special issue once a year, every year. The specific volume and issue will be determined later, depending on the editors’ schedule.
We are pleased to announce our next essay-writing competition. The award is open to all post-graduate research students and to all early career researchers (up to five years after the completion of your PhD) who have yet to find a full-time or tenured position. The prize is guaranteed publication in the next summer issue of Foundation (August 2017).
To be considered for the competition, please submit a 6000 word article on any topic, period, theme, author, film or other media within the field of science fiction and its academic study. All submitted articles should comply with the guidelines to contributors as set out on the SF Foundation website. Only one article per contributor is allowed to be submitted.
In order to promote dialogue between “East” and “West”, and to also unpack and problematize those categories, we welcome papers that address a broad range of issues, especially in relation to literature, art, film, and popular culture. Interdisciplinary and theoretical approaches are encouraged and especially approaches that focus on contentious political and moral issues. While traditional forms of presentation are welcome, participants may also make use of less conventional modes involving, for example, pictorial essays or the incorporation of social media.
Networks of protest and dissent, actual and virtual, were understood to have become increasingly centreless and leaderless across the 1990s, and beyond. Even the nature of protest and dissent fell away from previous models, as aligned to pragmatic demands and manifestos, single issues and norms of controlled civil disobedience. Now the masses were understood not to assemble behind any one position, or rally to one slogan, but more to stand in a kind of collective negative correlation to the faltering status quo: a crowd of singularities.
We invite submissions for the Rhetorical Approaches to Literature panel, a standing session of the annual Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association conference. The 2016 PAMLA Conference will be held at the Westin Pasadena from Friday-Sunday, November 11-13, 2016, in Pasadena, California.
This year's conference theme is "Archives, Libraries, Properties." However, papers on any topics related to literature from a rhetorical analysis and perspective are welcome.
Paper proposals must be made to our online system, which requires a PAMLA website user account for access. Click on "Online Proposal Submission Form" on this page:
As globalization settles in across the planet, the female body continues to be the territory par excellence where political and religious wars resiliently take place. From the Balkan war, to the femicides of Ciudad Juárez and the women facially disfigured by acid throwing, the female body continues to be a threat in the public sphere. This panel explores scholarly ideas on feminist conceptualizations of the female body in the public realm in Spanish-speaking societies vis-à-vis the above-mentioned context.
Paper Title: 100 words max.
Paper Abstract: 300 words max.

This session explores the emergent field of digital narratives with a focus on productions originated in Latin America; the panel will also analyze digital works produced by Latin@s in the United States. As the scholarship of élika Ortega, Scott Weintraub, Luis Correa-Díaz, Osvaldo Cleger, Carolina Gaínza, and Phillip Penix-Tadsen thoroughly demonstrate, Latin America is currently having an avant-garde role in the production of digital narratives in cyberspace. Interactive novels and poems, as well as online artistic platforms and the creation of video games count among the wide range of cultural artifacts produced in the region to be shared in cyberspace.
Cinematic Codes Review and Pennsylvania Literary Journal are both accepting general submissions for their three annual issues, with deadlines in April, July, and November.
