[UPDATE] America Abroad: Forging an International Commons, C19, March 13-16, 2014

John Mac Kilgore, Florida State University; Daniel Grace, UC-Davis

We invite submissions for a panel on nineteenth-century US literatures concerned with "abroadness," that is, any topic dealing with the way that Americans abroad—as travelers, refugees, diplomats, journalists, expatriates, or laborers—forge common binds (real or ideological) with or in other nations.

But we also want to think of America abroad in a more conceptual sense of away from home—not within its own domain or customary identity, foreign to itself, but discovering a commonness defined through interactions beyond the boundary, transformed through foreign involvement; and in the sense of in circulation/exported—America as a concept inherently part of dispersed global traffic.

Sara E. Murphy and Don Rodrigues / NeMLA 2014

What happens when, in a work of poetry or prose, a hegemonic order is cracked, disrupted, reconstituted, and reshaped; in the words of Jamaica Kincaid, 'Do you ever wonder why some people blow things up?' We invite participants for a roundtable session that will explore the idea that 20th and 21st century authors who write from positions of deprivilege often explicitly engage in performative illogicality and disorientation as a tactic of epistemological re-formation within their texts.

Midwest Victorian Studies Association: Political Violence at Home and Abroad

Political Violence at Home and Abroad
Seminar Leader: Dr. Bill Meier, Department of History, Texas Christian University

Violence harnessed to political programmes mushroomed in the 19th century alongside the growth of '-isms': socialism, conservatism, trade unionism, nationalism, terrorism, anarchism, and the like. Yet the distinction between "ordinary" crime and "political" crime was a blurry one, and governments, police, journalists, even "political criminals" themselves attributed divergent meanings to their menacing behavior.

Geocriticism and Spatial Literary Studies (new Palgrave Macmillan book series)

Robert T. Tally Jr., series editor

Geocriticism and Spatial Literary Studies is a new book series from Palgrave Macmillan focusing on the dynamic relations among space, place, and literature. The spatial turn in the humanities and social sciences has occasioned an explosion of innovative, multidisciplinary scholarship in recent years, and geocriticism, broadly conceived, has been among the more promising developments in spatially oriented literary studies. Whether focused on literary geography, cartography, geopoetics, or the spatial humanities more generally, geocritical approaches enable readers to reflect upon the representation of space and place, both in imaginary universes and in those zones where fiction meets reality.

Critical Intersections and Crucial Conversations: Diasporas & Regionalisms

NOLA DIASPORA wants to explore the theories, activism, and pedagogies of critical Diaspora studies and critical regionalisms, hoping that awareness and activism can be made stronger by more visible and vigorously articulated connections between them.

How do the rhetorics and responsibilities of these two fields support each other? Compete?

Case studies exploring specific sites, actions, and events are welcomed, as are larger studies exploring theoretical constructs and frameworks. Non-comparative and comparative representations and/or analyses of domestic and global approaches, dialogues, and interventions are encouraged.

Seigneurie: Society for the Study of the Nobility, Lordship, and Chivalry

Seigneurie: Society for the Study of the Nobility, Lordship, and Chivalry invites paper proposals for a session on Noble Dwellings and Households at the 49th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, MI, May 8-11, 2014.

The session deals with the domestic side of aristocratic life, a topic which has attracted increasing attention in recent scholarship. Papers might investigate the actual structures in which nobles dwelt (or images of them in literature and art), the structure and personnel of aristocratic households, affective relations within noble families, especially as these are tied to common residence, and other related topics.
