Ninth Biennial Graduate Student Conference Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies University of British Columbia DATE: 29-30 October 2021 Vancouver, Canada In-between normalities: Care, persistence and the (re)imagination of life Keynote Speaker: Dr. Susan Antebi, University of Toronto As we slowly go back to “normal,” this international graduate student conference invites young scholars to investigate Francophone and Hispanic literature, cinema and culture under the paradigm of care, persistence, and the (re)imagination of life. The sudden outbreak of a pandemic makes us revisit what “normal” is comprised of. We saw this recently and now “new normal” has become integral part of our conversations.

Established in 1989, the Center for Mark Twain Studies “International
Conference on the State of Mark Twain Studies” is the oldest and largest
gathering devoted to all things Twain. During times so turbulent and
uncertain as to require that that the quadrennial conference on the State
of Mark Twain Studies be postponed by a year, the theme of change and
growth “speaks to our condition,” as the Quakers say.

Uses of Geographical Compilations and Collections: Readings, Translations, and Reuses (16th-18th Centuries)

In the early modern period, numerous travel memoirs and geographical texts assumed the form of printed compilations or composite collections. For a long time, only bibliophiles and book collectors, in their search for the “complete” collections, considered such texts as having true unity; Boucher de La Richarderie (1808), who put together a bibliography that is authoritative to this day, is a case in point. Such collections were often used as a way to find precise texts from such and such traveller or chronicler, without taking into account the book in which the texts featured, qua book.

Friday, October 1, 2021

The 'periphery' has long been the scene for the most pressing wagers of urban, economic and social development: in its various, often unfortunately negative aspects, the periphery constitutes a node of transition and inevitable connection between the 'centre' and the 'outside' of the city, maintaining opposing characteristics towards both, and acting as an identity-creating workshop for 'middle-earth society', where degradation is mixed with opportunities and is redeemed by creative energy.

Food and food practices constitute a significant part of national identity. People derive their sense of belonging through food cultures, which embody the memories of community and group membership. Eating Culture: The Poetics and Politics of Food posits cooking as an act that “performs cultural memory” (Doring, Heide & Muhleisen 2003) and reinforces communal relationships. While the Covid-19 pandemic that began in 2020 forced everyone to practice social distancing, shutting all social gatherings and communal activities. Food is one of the few things, which nevertheless aided in the continuance of social interaction.

Traveling, both as a concept and performativity, has yielded a diverse range of criticalliteratures that probe into the epistemological, ethical and aesthetic dimensions oftravel and mobility. However, much of the critical theories on travel (and, of late,nomadology) draw on the Western canon, while there appears to be a dearth ofproportionate research on and/or documentation of the indigenous analyticalframeworks that engage with travel(ing) theory.

The travel memoir offers an opportunity to examine a number of issues in terms of creative non-fiction. Travel stories focus on individuals who become strangers to themselves when they exile themselves from the environmental and cultural factors that have defined them thus far in service of self-discovery. They link up with the grand Odysseus-like impulse of traditional and modern literature that can profoundly alter identity when they travel and write about their experiences. Topics to consider include the issue of fact vs.

deadline for submissions:

The Journal of Literary Multilingualism explores texts written in non-native languages, in a mix of languages and alternating languages. It examines a wide range of literary practices from around the globe broadly defined by multilingual and multicultural situations. The phenomenon of literary multilingualism is as old as literature itself but has received more scholarly attention as migration and globalization have increased in recent years. As the first international journal devoted entirely to this emerging interdisciplinary field, it offers a forum for cutting-edge research across the humanities and social sciences.

deadline for submissions:

Piotr Alekseevich Kropotkin (1842-1921) was one of the most prominent advocates of anarchism during his adult life, but also a famous intellectual and activist in Europe and further afield. In this centenary year of his death, we welcome you to join us for a discussion about his legacy, influence and relevance today. This conference will discuss his life and his work, but also his afterlife. Since February 1921, the world has lived without Kropotkin, but in many ways his ideas and his legacy persist. This conference seeks to specify, debate, contest, and carry on that legacy.

The PAMLA 2021 Travel and Literature session welcomes proposals focused on travel, odyssey, and mobility through literary lenses as broadly conceived, with special interest in movement through city spaces. Since this year’s conference theme is “City of God, City of Destruction,” we are particularly interested in essays that consider the ways in which literary works address the city as a site for spiritual exploration, identity loss, or renewal for characters who travel to, from, or through urban spaces. How does travel or movement through city spaces address issues of identity, perception, or power?
