The postmodern novel of formation: an emergent "genre"?

deadline for submissions:

What happens when the aesthetic traits of the classic Bildungsroman model are combined with those of postmodern narratives? There is a major shift in the postmodern period that puts into question issues of self-formation, identity, and the possibility to reach full maturity, aspects that were at the aesthetic center of the original Bildungsroman genre. Nevertheless, bildungsroman features continue to come back, almost obsessively, in late twentieth and twenty-first century fictions written in Spanish, signaling that integration and belonging are universal, timeless and ultimate human aspirations.

What is Feminism Now? Global Feminisms, Politics, and the Classroom Space NeMLA 2018

deadline for submissions:

This panel seeks to interrogate approaches to the teaching feminist literature and constructions of identity in the classroom space post-election. Student attitudes toward and instructor approaches to feminist teaching practices and the teaching of feminism have been forced to the forefront since the campaign and US Presidential election in 2016. Global definitions of feminism and its scope have come into question, pushing discussions to revolve around what it truly means to champion human rights and navigate gender politics. This panel will look at how attitudes towards feminist identification have shifted in literature and classroom politics in reaction to a public rhetorical debate over its definitions and intents.

Butler Companion

 

Editors Gregory J. Hampton (Howard University) and Kendra R. Parker (Hope College) are seeking submissions for The Bloomsbury Companion to Octavia E. Butler. This book will be a collection of literary criticism and theory by an international range of contemporary scholars exploring major themes across the full span of Octavia Butler’s writing.  

 

We welcome essays that survey past and current scholarship on Butler; however, we are most interested in work that will point forward to new directions and new agendas in Butler scholarship on both domestic and international levels.

Session at the 53rd International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamzoo MI, May 10-13, 2018

Many discussions of Marian piety in the late Middle Ages tend to link imitatio Mariae with women's piety, and focus on Mary's importance in the devotional lives of, for example, Margery Kempe and Julian of Norwich. And Mary was important to these women; but, as Caroline Walker Bynum, among others, has noted, Marian piety was not as important to women's spirituality as one might expect. Rather, as several scholars have suggested, Mary may have been more important to medieval male visionaries, and it was the male biographers of women who stress the theme of female imitatio Mariae.
