The Society for Contemporary Literature is sponsoring two panels at the annual meeting of the American Literature Association in Boston, May 23-26, 2019. We are looking for panel proposals that address themselves to topics in contemporary American literature (or about the last twenty-five years), and especially welcome submissions that address its full range and diversity. ALA welcomes both traditional and non-standard panel formats as well as roundtables, and so does SCL.

Naval Wakes & Black Galactics: Being and Blackness in the Age of Slavery

updated: 
Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 1:17pm
North American Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 28, 2018

For at least the last half-century, theories of Blackness have challenged the foundations of modern critical thought. Theorists such as Fred Moten, Jared Sexton, Christina Sharpe, Hortense Spillers, Alexander Weheliye, Frank Wilderson, Achille Mbembe, and Sylvia Wynter variously interrogate the politics, discourse, and materialities of the imperial, capitalist experience of slavery (and its afterlife). One important avenue of consideration is how this perverse institution undermined possibilities for the Enlightenment subject not simply for those of African descent but for all people complicit in the imperial project.

Close, Distant, Personal, Historical: The Elements of Reading Romanticism

Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 1:17pm
North American Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 4, 2019

Over the last decade, there has been an eruption of scholarly interest in the practices, methodologies, and techne of reading. Best and Marcus’s surface reading—which has influenced a broad sweep of New Formalist criticism—emerged alongside distant reading, one of the major interpretive paradigms of the digital humanities. The development of these twenty-first-century movements has been matched by renewed interest in twentieth-century formalisms, including the history of the New Criticism and the proto-neuroscientific approaches to reading taken by critics such as I.A. Richards.

Non-Binary: Retheorizing Romantic Sexes and Genders

updated: 
Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 1:16pm
North American Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 30, 2018

This panel seeks to retheorize social constructivists accounts of Romantic sex and gender circulating since the early 80s that continue to persist and insist—however unwittingly—on a binaristic or universalistic normativity (hetero- or otherwise). Moreover, all such accounts are often firmly anthropocentric, offering little flexibility to engage the nonhuman in all of its material forms. More recent New Materialist accounts of sexes and genders provide resources for moving forward from the confines of the discursive prison of sex and gender that retains within it, again however unwittingly or unwillingly, a binarism between the social and the material, the human and the nonhuman.

Political Performances Working Group at IFTR Shanghai 2019

Monday, November 5, 2018 - 10:31am
International Federation of Theatre Research - Political Performances Working Group
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 7, 2019

We would like to invite researchers to submit their abstracts to the Political Performances Working Group at the 2019 IFTR conference, which will take place on 8-12 July in Shanghai, China. The theme for the 2019 conference is Theatre, Performance, and Urbanism. We have identified three loose strands that reflect the recent work of many researchers in the wider field of political performances, but that also align with the 2019 conference theme. The Political Performances Working Group therefore invites proposals for papers on the following topics:

(A)     Citizenship

Corroding the Now: Poetry + Science|SF

updated: 
Monday, November 5, 2018 - 10:38am
Royal Holloway, University of London
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 14, 2019

The world we inhabit is framed, driven, (re)produced, and conceptualised by and through science. Science as a mode of knowing contours the prevailing episteme, whilst technological innovation continues to remake work and leisure experience. At the same time, society is both reflected and in turn formed by science fiction (SF): as contributor to the nostalgia economy, as a dominant visual-commercial aesthetic, as a mimetic index of the present’s utopian and dystopian tendencies. The now is a time of extreme precarity. We face a raft of catastrophes – political, socioeconomic, and, most pressingly, ecological. And yet, even as our own survival comes into question, capitalism itself seems unassailable, primed to outlast ‘humanity.’
