MSA: Global Modernisms and the Graphic

Patrick Herald
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 30, 2018

Douglas Mao and Rebecca Walkowitz's field-defining article, "The New Modernist Studies," turns ten in 2018. Despite the fact that the article takes up new media as a key topic, and although it was published just after ground-breaking work in the "visual turn" of literary studies by Mary Lou Emery (Modernism, the Visual, and Caribbean Literature, 2007), W.J.T. Mitchell (Picture Theory, 2005), Michael North (Camera Works, 2005), and Mark Wollaeger (Modernism, Media, and Propaganda, 2006), theories and discussions of global modernism have since focused considerably more energy on modernism's geographic and temporal dimensions than its relation to the graphic.

Indigenous Hubs, Gateway Cities, Border States

Monday, February 19, 2018 - 9:12am
Western Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 15, 2018

The 2018 annual conference of the Western Literature Association will take place October 24-27 at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. “Indigenous Hubs, Gateway Cities, Border States” is derived from this location. This region, at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, has been urban for thousands of years. Cahokia, known for its impressive earthen mounds, is directly across the river from today’s St. Louis, and once housed the largest pre-Columbian civilization north of Mexico, a hub for trade, communication, and transportation throughout indigenous North America. Long before St. Louis was known as the “Gateway to the West,” it was nicknamed “Mound City.”

CFP for MLA 2019--Beyond Manga: Comics in Asia

updated: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018 - 11:57am
Jessica Gross, for MLA panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

The comics world has been hugely influenced by, and in a large part shaped by, Japanese manga. Thus, manga is the center of many discussions about Asian comics in the United States. However, in Comics Studies less attention is given to comics from other Asian countries. This panel seeks to widen the discussion about comics to bring attention to Asian comics outside of Japan, and to interrogate the many visual forms and thematic concerns of Asian comics. Papers on comics from any Asian country other than Japan are welcome; papers must be in English but may discuss comics in any language. This call is for a non-guaranteed panel at the 2019 Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago from January 3-6, 2019.
