The Traveler's Eye: Narrating Dis/Location in 20th Century Travel Literature, Bucharest, September 26th-28th 2013

Friday, March 1, 2013 - 2:29pm
University of Bucharest, CISCER

The troubled 20th century has been labeled in many ways – one of which is "the century of migrations". Temporary or permanent displacement, therefore, which is largely understood as an existential and epistemological condition embedded in its own material and metaphorical contexts, became one of the most fascinating subjects of (post)modern literature. The experience of travel in the largest sense reshapes personal identities and constructs new symbolic geographies that call into question the center-periphery opposition.

Creative Writing in the Digital Age

Technology is transforming the 21st-century classroom, offering educators an array of new possibilities to enhance student learning. From digital textbooks to classroom management software to social media, the digital age has brought not only changes to the university but challenges as well. Adopting new technologies for the classroom can be particularly daunting for instructors of creative writing, given the discipline's deep roots both in print culture and the traditional workshop model.

CFP: Emerging Adulthood and American Popular Culture [10/9/13-10/11/13; Chicago, IL]

Michael Rennett / University of Texas at Austin

I am putting together a panel for the Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood conference that discusses the relationship between emerging adulthood and American popular culture. Since the last decade of scholarship on emerging adulthood has established the field of study, it has become important to comprehend the application of the discourse to popular culture texts which have a strong role in both capturing and problematizing notions of American adulthood, particularly as these texts have become more prominent in recent years.

In this session, papers will look at the different ways place can determine one's identity. Whether discussing immigrant narratives, narratives of displacement, coming of age narratives or something all-together different, geographic location determines a great deal about one's personal narrative. Place can determine as much about a person as his or genetic history, making the relationship between identity and place subject to boundless exploration- See more at: http://www.pamla.org/2013/topics/mapping-identity#sthash.dF5hJvN2.dpuf

Mapping and Measuring Twentieth-Century Correspondence | Modernist Studies Association Conference (29 August-1 September 2013):

How can digital methods and scholarship help us to capitalize on the everyday genre that is twentieth-century correspondence?

This MSA exhibition aims to showcase, explore, and promote the possibilities of digital tools for scholarship on modern epistolarity.

Letters are uniquely ill-suited to codex publication, and letters scholarship should thus be uniquely bold in its deployment of digital tools. Current software has multiplied the possibilities. Among other things, digital methods allow us to

[UPDATE] CFP reminder: Spectral Spaces and Hauntings (anthology) (abstract submission by 29 March, 2013)

Reminder CFP: Spectral Spaces and Hauntings (anthology)
Edited by Christina Lee

"We moderns, despite our mechanistic and rationalistic ethos, live in landscapes filled with ghosts." (Michael Bell, 1997: 813)

We are soliciting contributions for an anthology which will explore the spectral quality of space. The language of 'hauntings' will be implemented to unpack how absence, emptiness and the imperceptible can signify an overwhelming presence of something (that once was, and still is) there. A major premise of the book is that space is constituted of both physical terrain and psychological landscapes that are infused with memory and history. As such, places are always ambivalent.
