'Victorian Transport' - AVSA Annual Conference (Hong Kong, 10-12 July 2014) - UPDATE

updated: 
Sunday, September 1, 2013 - 10:40pm
Australasian Victorian Studies Association

The Victorian Age is one of mobility and of transportation: goods, people and money were transported within Great Britain, across Europe, and to the far reaches of Empire. Ideas – whether economic, political, educational, religious or philosophical – were imported and exported. And far from being unemotional, the Victorians were also regularly 'transported' by emotions which doctors, scientists and psychologists tried to theorise.
This conference seeks to redefine the parameters of transport through inter-disciplinary approaches to material, metaphorical and metaphysical journeys during the Victorian era. Papers on global crossings are particularly welcome.

MAP

Intersections is an international peer-reviewed journal that is particularly interested in papers that extend or challenge current critical positions in radical ways, especially papers that establish 'impossible' links with other disciplines, theories or approaches. We publish articles on literature, language and theory of any historical period, national culture, ethnic group, genre or media. Articles must demonstrate thorough research with concrete references to recent scholarship in the field. Intersections accepts both British English or American English spelling and forms but authors have to be consistent.

Benjamin Poore, University of York, UK

The deadline for chapter proposals for this edited collection has been extended to September 15th. There has been a very strong response so far, but there are still some areas mentioned in the CFP (reproduced below) that I would very much like to see proposals on, to help address the full range of the subject and different approaches to neo-Victorianism.

As before, potential contributors are invited to submit a 250-word abstract for consideration, along with a biographical note of 50 to 100 words, to:

[UPDATE] - Atlantic World Foodways CFP Due October 16

updated: 
Friday, August 30, 2013 - 7:29am
Atlantic World Research Network and Quaintance-Weaver

The Atlantic World Research Network, in partnership with Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels and The Fresh Market, presents a unique feast of ideas and food—an international and interdisciplinary conference exploring four great transatlantic foodways: Carolina Lowcountry, African, Italian, and Spanish/Latin American. Featuring famed food scholars and leading chefs, our conference will bring together inquiring minds and discerning palates as we ask how transatlantic contact combined and transformed old foodways, and how those foodways have transformed us all.

[UPDATE] Bodies in Place: Disability and the Environment in American Literature (9/30/13))

updated: 
Thursday, August 29, 2013 - 10:12pm
NEMLA Conference (April 3-6, Harrisburg, PA)

This panel seeks a broad range of papers that explore how disability challenges normative, even ableist, constructions of the body-environment dyad. Broadly speaking, papers in this panel will survey points of connection between disability studies and ecological criticism. For example, how does disability-centered American literature (re)negotiate the relationship between embodiment and emplacement? How might life writing by people with disabilities contribute to a richer and more inclusive ecological criticism? How might we re-examine and deconstruct "canonical" American environmental literature through a disability studies lens?
