twentieth century and beyond
The E. E.
The Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, held in Louisville, KY, USA, has sent out its CFP, which includes the opportunity for panels from author societies. The basic details for the conference are below. The dates are 21-23 February 2019.
I'm planning to chair a panel on Katherine Mansfield, sponsored by the Katherine Mansfield Society.
If you are interested in presenting a paper at the conference, I’ll need (a) abstracts and titles for the papers to be presented; (b) the following information for each presenter: name (as it will appear in the program), address, e-mail address, academic affiliation (if applicable). I will want this information by 21 August 2018. I have to submit the full panel by 10 September.
Recognizing that the New World economy was historically based on the system of slavery and that the United States came into being as a slave-holding nation, we experience the lasting effects of slavery in all facets of contemporary US society and culture. This panel seeks papers analyzing contemporary representations of slave history from the black and white perspectives. While we are very familiar with African American representations of slavery in a number of cultural media, this panel is particularly interested in how contemporary representations of slavery created by people of European descent differ from those of African Americans. How is slavery remembered differently in black and white?
CALL FOR PAPERS
Bearing Witness: Reading James Baldwin in the 21st Century
(A Critical Anthology)
“Perhaps I did not succumb to ideology . . . because I have never seen myself as a spokesman. I am a witness. In the church in which I was raised you were supposed to bear witness to the truth. Now, later on, you wonder what in the world the truth is, but you do know what a lie is.”—James Baldwin, Interview by Julius Lester
This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages. We use double blind peer review.
“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.
Biennial Conference of the Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment (ASLE)
UC Davis, June 26-30, 2019
Panel Proposal: "Republics of Radiation: Nuclear Cultures in Comparative Perspective"
This panel will take up the question of state power as it relates to the aesthetics of the 20th- and 21st-century Indian novel. How do the form and content of the novel inform our understanding of Indian political histories as they emerge from the encounters between the state and its others? In seeking an answer to this question, this panel will attempt to understand the literary discourse of state-led development and its aesthetic claims as they come into contact with counter-discursive forms of identity and belonging. Possible topics include but are not limited to: the postcolonial bildungsroman, the role of autobiography in nationalist discourse, national realism, and subaltern imaginings of the state.
