The College English Association is soliciting original works of fiction, poetry, or non-fiction for the 90th SAMLA conference from November 2-4 in Birmingham. The SAMLA conference theme is "Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies."
Submissions are being sought for a collection of essays tentatively titled Data Visualization in Eighteenth-Century Studies. The main goal of this collection is to bring to light new research that involves the use of visualizations in approaching eighteenth-century texts and cultural phenomena (graphs, maps, geospatial representations, social networks, data mapping, and/or any patterns of intellectual exchange presented in a visual form).
We are excited to announce the Call for Papers for Modernism in the Home. The conference is set to be held on Monday 1st and Tuesday 2nd July 2019 at the University of Birmingham in collaboration with the Centre for Modernist Cultures. Studies of modernism and the home are wide-ranging; this international conference will reflect the broad scope of research, fostering interdisciplinary dialogue between literary, arts and cultural sectors. The conference invites scholars to interrogate the historical, theoretical and thematic intersections occurring in the domestic sphere in the early twentieth century.
The Society for the History of Authorship, Reading & Publishing (SHARP) will sponsor up to four panels at the Renaissance Society of America’s annual meeting in Toronto, ON on 17-19 March 2019. SHARP @ RSA brings together scholars working on any aspect of the creation, dissemination, and reception of manuscript and print and their digital remediation.
Novels, Then and Now
The Popular Novels area includes all novel genres, authors, time periods, cultures, and settings. Consider it a safety net for novels that don’t fit neatly into a specific genre or that cross genres. Consider the many sub-genres of Romance with a capital “R”—western, thriller, paranormal, religious, romance (with a small “r”), detective, urban fantasy, etc. From Pearl S. Buck to Lee Child, from Laurie King to Tony Hillerman, from Julia Spencer-Fleming to Emilie Richards—all are welcome.
With this is mind, the area chairs for the “Novels, Then and Now” section of the Mid-Atlantic Popular and American Culture Association (MAPACA) invite papers on the above as well as on the following themes:
