Transatlantic Dialogues

Journal of the Midwest Modern Languages Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

This special issue of the Journal of the MMLA aims to interrogate how transatlantic encounters, itineraries, and movements have shaped literary and cultural expressions, influencing the formation of both individual and collective knowledge. In particular, it aspires to foster a dialogue to address political, ethical, sexual, and aesthetic questions related to transatlantic interactions among people, practices, and ideas, expanding from traditional Eurocentric perspectives and canonized narratives to encompass a global perspective. This dialogue becomes even more relevant in the present days, considering the political and cultural implications of such motilities.

Medical Humanism / American Literature

CFP for American Literature Association (ALA) 30th Annual Conference

May 23-26, 2019, Boston, MA

Given the ongoing healthcare crisis in America—soaring costs, physician shortages, and lack of insurance coverage—and the rising interest in the field of health humanities, I seek projects that illuminate American literature’s contribution to medical humanism. More specifically, I am interested in papers that address how American literature can help us revision our view of the body, health, illness, disease, medical education, and/or the healthcare system.
