 MLA Special SessionJanuary 9-12, 2020Seattle, WA  CALL FOR PROPOSALS As PhDs in the humanities increasingly find (and are increasingly encouraged to find) careers outside of the academy, this proposed special session for the 2020 MLA Convention aims to look beyond advising models and programmatic changes and asks how professional organizations like MLA or other academic adjacent institutions can support independent scholarship.  What stigma does the "independent scholar" label carry?

Trust: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

We live in a time when manipulated images, partisan reporting, and allegations of ‘fake news’ make it increasingly difficult to determine whether individuals and institutions are worthy of our trust. Trust is akin to a leap of faith that depends on a combination of experience, intuition, bravery and sheer hope. As Alphonse Lingis observes, ‘[…] to trust you is to go beyond what I know and to hold on to the real individual that is you.” Interpersonal trust circumvents the uncertainties that may put relationships at risk and transforms these into the most wondrous of alliances as doubt turns to rapture.
