In a 2023 article, the Black British writer Derek Owusu describes the transformative experience of reading D. H. Lawrence’s St Mawr (1925) as simultaneously an awakening to language and to a wider sense of connectedness. ‘I don’t have the words to describe what happened to me while turning the pages of that short story,’ he writes, ‘but I know language became something three-dimensional, and everything around me seemed connected by an unexpressed narrative.’

Bad Art (vol.2) SAMLA 96 - Jacksonville

updated: 
Wednesday, July 3, 2024 - 11:01am
Ian Afflerbach / South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 25, 2024

After the encouraging success of last year’s panel, we want to continue our discussion on “bad art.” Scholarship on the politics of literature has, in recent decades, increasingly come to focus on whether texts from the past conform to the values of the present. Some texts are praised for modeling, even anticipating, our own progressive values, while others are subject to critique for the way they ignore, license, or justify forms of inequity, injustice, and subordination. This disciplinary impulse has come to seem not only justified, but natural. Yet it has also resulted in a growing corpus of books being dismissed or maligned within the academy (books that are often, and importantly, still being read and revered outside the academy).

Extended Deadline ‘A word after a word after a word is power’: The Hulu Adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (2017-2024): A one-day multidisciplinary symposium.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 31, 2024

We are inviting proposals for 20-minute conference papers on the Hulu Adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale, Margaret Atwood’s famous 1985 dystopia. The novel was published during Ronald Reagan’s troubled presidency, which witnessed second-wave feminism, anti-pornography, pro-life and pro-legal abortion campaigns, but the first season of the adaptation was likewise released during troubled times, a few months after the controversial election of Donald Trump as the 50th President of the USA, which created an equally tense political scene. Women across the world were protesting for female and human rights, often dressed in the now iconic Handmaid’s costume.
