Although the Holocaust has long engaged writers in Canada – those with and without direct links to the historic event – their particular exploration of the subject has received little critical or scholarly attention. We now invite submissions to a collection of scholarly essays on Canadian literary works that treat the subject of the Holocaust.

“T. S. Eliot: Identity / Politics”
The phrase “identity politics” has become as highly charged as the phrase “politically correct”—more often deployed today as an invitation to attack or defend some group or form of affiliation. For the 2020 MLA in Seattle, the International T. S. Eliot Society will sponsor a panel that recognizes the power of the phrase and the importance of all that it points toward, but we intend to avoid the merely reactive, accusatory and defensive postures that often attend its use.
Call for contributions for Digi-Mediated-Culture; a one-day symposium that will consider the social, cultural and political space between human consciousness and digital technology. Digi-Mediated-Culture will examine the intersection between humans and machines as a generative space for creative production. Digi-Mediated-Culture invites proposals from academics, artists, designers, philosophers, linguists, artificial intelligence (AI) researchers, programmers, et.al. The symposium will be held on 10th May 2019 in Swansea College of Art’s Reading Room, ALEX, Alexandra Road, Swansea - 1.30pm – 6.00pm

Proposed Special Session for MLA 2020 in Seattle (Jan. 9-12)
The upcoming 2020 MLA Conference is being held in Seattle, Jimi Hendrix's hometown, 50 years after his death in 1970.
To mark this meeting, we welcomes proposals about the significance of Hendrix and his music to cultural and literary studies, including how his legacy continues to infuse and inspire artists, writers, and scholars. We are especially interested in papers that tie his music to larger movements of black expression, such as blues traditions, black radical aesthetics, or the Black Arts Movement, as well as other innovative analyses inspired by affect theory and performance studies.

(Conference Theme: “Upheaval and Reconstruction”)
In 2019, Romania celebrates 30 years since the Revolution. This landmark date compels us to reflect on the radical changes that have occurred in Romanian society and culture since 1989. How have freedom of expression, efforts to reinstate a democratic society, and the country’s accession to the European Union impacted cultural production (literature, cinema, art)? How is Romanian cultural identity negotiated in the national, supranational (European), and global marketplaces? Despite being considered “small” or “minor,” Romanian culture has acquired great visibility in Europe, while it still requires faster dissemination outside Europe (e.g. in the United States). How should cultural institutions ensure its translation and promotion more effectively?
