The Spanish I (Peninsular Literature before 1700) permanent section of the Midwest Modern Language Association seeks proposals for the upcoming MMLA Conference in Chicago (November 14-17, 2019). Though proposals on any topic related to Medieval and Early Modern Spanish Literature are welcome, we also seek proposals that specifically engage with the 2019 MMLA theme of “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgängers.” The conference theme includes, but is not limited to: dual identity, double meanings, double entendre, mirror images, reflections, binaries, parallels, repetitions, translations, imitations, adaptations, distortions, and echoes.

Lehigh University’s Department of English is thrilled to announce its annual Literature and Social Justice conference, “Performance and Social Justice,” to be held November 1-2, 2019 at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pa. We welcome proposals from Master’s students, Ph.D. students, recent graduates, and independent scholars working on performance studies, broadly conceived. We hope to address a variety of questions about the intersection of performance and social justice. What is the relationship between performance and justice? In what ways does a certain text/character/literary moment, etc. perform social justice? How can performance become a form of activism and/or advocacy?
