CFP - American Association of Italian Studies 2013 Annual Conference - University of Oregon, Eugene (April 11-14, 2013)
Testimony in Italy from Postwar to Today
In the last decade, testimony has perhaps been one of the most flourishing genres in Italian literary and visual production and played a key role in shaping both the memory and opinions of civil society on issues such as terrorism, mafia, war, and the abuse of power.
This panel will explore the genre of testimony in Italian literature, philosophy, and the visual arts from the postwar period to today. All theoretical approaches are welcome.
"Alt," neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary scholarly interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various fields and disciplines have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of alt, inviting critical discourses around questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives. From considering relations with others to shifting theoretical frameworks to imagining alternate realities, alt complicates periodizations, genres, identities, subjectivities, epistemologies, and discourses.

Manuscripts are solicited for a new collection of original essays on Hemingway's posthumous works: A Moveable Feast, Islands in the Stream, The Garden of Eden, True at First Light, Under Kilimanjaro, stories, and journalism/essays. Interested scholars might also consider any newly accessioned series of correspondence between Hemingway and others, particularly in the JFK collection, that might be thought to comprise a "narrative" of its own and cast light on his writing style, fictional preoccupations, etc.
Any approaches will be considered, although there is a special interest in working with compositional history, editing and revision, both by Hemingway and by editors, friends, and others after his death.

Disabilities in Children's Literature:
James Joyce Quarterly welcomes submissions for a special issue, "Joycean Avant-Gardes," which will explore relationships between the works of James Joyce and avant-garde movements in Europe, Latin America and beyond. If the avant-garde has become an increasingly appealing subject for modernist studies in recent years, this special issue will consider the importance of experimental artistic movements in understanding Joyce's formal and thematic innovations, as well as the usefulness of the Joycean oeuvre in developing our understanding of the different stakes and ambitions of the avant-garde.
See below, and attached, a call for abstracts for Philosophy and Roald Dahl. Continuing the trajectory of Dr. Seuss and Philosophy and hopefully duplicating its success, Rowman and Littlefield is giving me another bite at the children's literature and philosophy apple, this time focusing on Roald Dahl. I think this volume offers a lot of opportunities for some really fun and insightful philosophical work. So please consider contributing and forwarding this along to anyone you think might be interested.

This panel seeks most broadly to facilitate discussions regarding disability and various forms of corporeal and cognitive impairment in medieval and early modern Europe. Although research on medical aspects of disability is certainly welcome, we especially invite investigations that push the study of disability beyond the biological, exploring the political/legal, religious, literary, and social valences of the nonstandard body.
