Beyond Tragedies of War: Voices and Bodies of Women from The Global South

updated: 
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 10:51am

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 1, 2020

The Nobel Peace Prize winner, Nadia Murad, a former captive of ISIS is an essential reminder of the sacrifices women make during a war which often go unnoticed or unacknowledged as heroic. In countless areas of the Global South, the female body has endured physical and psychological violation. Rape is an effective strategy of war and ethnic cleansing, and the violated community finds it difficult to speak about their fate during the time of war and of peace as well. In most cases, the raped body goes silent, feeling ashamed and fearing retributions from all spheres of life.

CHANGING THE (CULTURAL) CLIMATE WITH ECOCRITICISM AND ECOLINGUISTICS

updated: 
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - 10:29am
Department of Humanistic Studies, University of Ferrara
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 25, 2020

The discourse of the environment permeates attitudes towards the present, representations of the past and perceptions of the future.

How do languages, literatures and other modes of meaning-making promote ecocritical frameworks that interrogateWestern and Eastern anthropocentric assumptions, biases and expectations?

How do the environmental humanities test new hermeneutic tools to assess the interdependence between natural and anthropic ecosystems? 

Our focus is onnew narratives of fragile and resilient environments; the im/material wellbeing of the organisms that live in them; the interconnections between diverse forms of life.

deadline for submissions:

Destination – the word itself concerns both journey and journey’s end. For this issue of Oxford Research in English, we invite articles that delve into arrival and setting forth in literature, as well as the textual, intertextual and extratextual ways one can examine literary places and spaces. “Destination” derives from the Latin dēstināre—to resolve, to determine, to destine— before journeying into French and arriving in English.

The Scandal of Adaptation

South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 25, 2020

Taking its cue from Lawrence Venuti's work on the scandal of translation, the ways that translations of texts originally produced in other languages carry the power to affront the norms and assumptions of both source and target languages and cultures, this roundtable for the South Atlantic Modern Language Association's conference, which will take place at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront in Jacksonville, FL, 13–15 November 2020, welcomes submissions on either particularly scandalous adaptations or the scandal of adaptation generally.
