Canadian Review of American Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

The Canadian Review of American Studies is seeking papers for a special issue on the work of French psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan and extensions of this work. The editors are interested in papers that might address the reception of Lacanian theory and clinical practice in North America. How has Lacan been taken up across the transatlantic between North America and Europe? Further, what is the state of Lacanian theory and psychoanalysis today in relation to mental health? How might Lacanian psychoanalysis speak to the current North American state of affairs? We are broadly interested in papers that explore psychoanalytic approaches at the intersection of aesthetics, poltics, ethics, history, gender studies or clinical work.

Perseverance builds character.

How does perseverance come about? By rising through a struggle, whether it is a provoked or unprovoked event that questions one’s ability to endure and survive a hardship. It is through one’s suffering and survival of such hardships in life -whether physical or mental - that one is able to build upon their character, thus leading to hope.

We are able to see these modes of struggle and perseverance in various facets from ethnicity, gender, and politics, to name a few, and we would like to hear, learn, and share them in our publication.

Postmodern and postcolonial intersections

Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:22am
University of Gafsa, Tunisia
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 28, 2018

This study day aims to bring researchers together to debate the postmodern and postcolonial intersections in literary and cultural studies. Grounded in contemporary postmodern and postcolonial thematic and aesthetic concerns, the study day will attempt to explore the confluences of the two theoretical trends, the discursive spaces offered by the first to the second. In this regard, relations between the East and the West and how such relations are presented and re-represented in multifarious ways in the writing and re-writing of literary and cultural texts are investigated.

Shakespearean Translations – Translating Shakespeare

Shakespeare Seminar 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.

Challenging Precarity

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

This proposed international seminar aims to respond to the current state of world affairs: notably, the inherent ontological vulnerability of life and the economic, socially-conditioned precariousness of individuals, societies and populations, which have been heightened since the 2008 financial crisis. Caused by an economic shift in the labour market and global neoliberal capitalism, precarity has been increasing due to world-wide inequality as “more extensive and less visible patterns of global dispossession” and “relatively unstable and dispersed conditions of deprivation and insecurity” gain ground (During 2015).
