Call For Papers
2018 MMLA Conference - "Consuming Cultures"
November 15-18, 2018
Kansas City, MO
The permanent section SPANISH III (Latin American Literature) welcome proposals that explore Latin American Literature and Culture and create space for dialogue across disciplines and genres in the context of this year’s conference theme “Consuming Cultures”. Proposals exploring issues related to cultural engagement and cultural appropriation in Latin America from any time period will be given preferential consideration. Papers on any aspect of this topic are welcome, including but not limited to the following themes:
Writing the Black Country is a blog edited by Dr Paul McDonald and R. M. Francis, from the Centre of Transnational and Transcultural Research at University of Wolverhampton in the UK. It's designed to showcase writing about England's industrial Midlands, and we are interested particularly in poetry and short prose pieces that focus on specific areas within the region.
We're less interested in writing about the region generally, but are looking for site, place or area specific work. For example, using a town, a street, a site as a point of departure or as setting for a work of fiction or poetry.
In time, this blog will transition, becoming an online, interactive literary map.
We’d like to invite an art historian, comparatist, or interdisciplinary literary scholar in the field of the environmental humanities to contribute to our edited volume Romantic Legacies: Transnational and Transdisciplinary Contexts, to be published in the Routledge Studies in Comparative Literature series in 2019. The volume comprises two major national groupings: first, the major Romantic traditions that developed in Germany, Britain, France, and the US; and second, the influence and cross-pollination of these traditions in Russia, China, India, and Japan.
