Sweet Home Chicago? Rethinking Blues Literature
Chicago, IL 3 January – 6 January 2019
What is the current state of Blues Literature? It has been well over thirty years since Houston Baker Jr.’s Blues, Ideology, and Afro-American Literature: A Vernacular Theory (1984) put blues back on the critical map. Much has changed since then. Even with innovative interventions in the field (Davis, Bolden, Gussow, McGinley), blues literature has fallen out of vogue within academic circles. This panel seeks to rethink blues literature's critical value.
Call for Papers, Doris Lessing Studies 2018: “Alternative Domesticities in the Works of Doris Lessing.”
Following Jenni Diski’s 2016 memoir, In Gratitude, we invite new readings of Lessing’s portrayals of non-biological families, non-normative modes of affiliation and dependence, and unconventional households and genealogies.

Center for Performance Research and Cultural Studies in South Asia
Print Modernities: An International Conference
30, 31August&1September 2018, Thrissur, Kerala, India.
The research program MEDIA (TransCrit, EA 1569) is organizing a one-day workshop on brand placement in film and TV series. The workshop will be held at the University of Paris 8 on Friday 15 June 2018.
Neither an artistic choice nor a coincidence, brand placement started to be used as soon as the movie industry was created but in a moderate way. Due to the rising costs of film production, this financial partnership has progressively become unavoidable to such an extent that a certain number of Hollywood movies and series could not be produced without it. The same applies, perhaps even to a larger degree, to TV shows, even though their production mode sometimes places them side-by-side with regular TV commercials.

Submissions in the 2000-8000 word range will be considered, with a focus on teaching, learning and pedagogy necessary for inclusion. There is no preference for any particular academic subject, and all papers will be peer reviewed.
