The XV International Conference on Anglo-American Literary Studies
“Home-Thoughts, from Abroad”
(from a poem by Robert Browning)
The proposed panel aims to build on enthusiasm for the “Experimental Narrative in Nonfiction” panel, held at the ISSN conference in 2018. It will continue to explore how and why nonfiction uses “experimental or unnatural devices,” and the differences that obtain when such devices are used in nonfiction as opposed to fiction.
We are a group of enthusiastic academics who found each other in Chicago, USA. We want to offer researchers the possibility to reflect on “German” in all its facets and its place in the world. German Journal is a peer-reviewed academic journal. Our objective is to circulate scholarly information on research in literature, culture, and language, including teaching German as a second or foreign language. Articles are published in German and English. Please visit www.germanjournal.org for more information. Happy writing!
In 2005, Jenny Rice suggested that we might move away from notions of rhetorical discourse as situated in a fixed place and time, with a specific aim and audience, towards an ecological view of rhetoric, where circulating texts transform rhetors, audiences, spaces, and events. Like biological ecologies, rhetorical ecologies are fluid rather than fixed, permeable rather than bounded. The Clemson University English Department invites graduate students from all disciplines to join us as we explore ecologies at the 2019 Margins Conference.
Seeking two additional papers for a two panel series at ANZSANA 2019 (Austin, Texas, February 6-8) relating the history and culture of Australia and New Zealand to settler colonialism as a transnational phenomenon. We are particularly interested in papers that:
• Engage in comparative work that relates the history and culture of Australia and/or New Zealand to that of the US
• Consider how Australia as a case study has shaped contemporary transnational understandings of settler colonialism as a structure of power.
• Consider the relationship between critiques of settler colonialism and critiques of the patriarchy, especially vis-a-vis contemporary Indigenous feminist approaches.

Survivor Stories: Challenging Our Rape Culture Together
In the last few months survivors’ efforts have been mobilized by efforts around the Me Too Movement, Time’s Up efforts, and, most recently, the Brett Kavanaugh appointment to the Supreme Court. Right now survivors’ voices are being heard at protest rallies, speak outs, and academic conferences across the country.

The conference, Educating the Global Citizen – International Perspectives on Foreign Language Teaching in the Digital Age, takes place on 25th – 28th March 2019 and is inviting paper submissions.
In times of rapid and unprecedented global sociocultural change, urgent calls are being made for salient educational responses to current global and digital challenges. Such calls are being met in (re)formulations of global (citizenship) education, sustainability education, and service learning, which endeavor to promote a democratic and human rights culture in schools and the larger community.
In the fall of 2019, CLOSURE will once again offer a forum for all facets of comics studies. From literary, cultural, media, social and image research to the sciences and beyond: the sixth edition of CLOSURE continues our ongoing search for the best and most innovative articles and reviews representing the state of the art in comics research. We welcome detailed close readings as much as comics theory and pioneering approaches to the medium — our open section comprises a diverse range of interdisciplinary studies of all things ›comic‹.
