deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 23, 2019

Recent work in the field of disability studies by scholars like Ato Quayson (2007), Tobin Siebers (2010), Maren Linett (2016), and Suzannah Biernoff (2017) has considered modernism’s appropriation of disabled bodies. This seminar thus seeks to better understand the role of disability in modernist literary and visual aesthetics. In particular, we encourage papers that consider how writers and artists borrowed from, mimicked, or otherwise recast disability as uniquely modernist literary and artistic subjects. Secondly, this seminar is interested in the ways modernism was cast as disabled in varied attacks on its aesthetic projects.

Feeling (Un)American: Race and National Belonging in the African American Literary Tradition

Monday, September 30, 2019

In his 1903 The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. Du Bois poses a question at the heart of the African-American literary tradition: “How does it feel to be a problem?” We see the question’s precursors in Walker’s Appeal, Douglass’ address on the Fourth of July, and Harper’s anti-slavery poetry. It reverberates in Hurston’s “How It Feels To Be Colored Me,” Ellison’s “black and blue,” Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, and Rankine’s Citizen. Taking up the affective relationship between race and national belonging, these texts ask us to contend with what it feels like to be black in a nation founded on anti-blackness. Indeed, as Baldwin and Coates make clear, the problem lies ever “between the world and me.”

 

"Philip Roth's Succes de Scandale" at ACLA (March 19-22, 2020)

The Philip Roth Society
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 23, 2019

The Philip Roth Society invites submissions for a seminar entitled “Philip Roth’s Succès de Scandale.” While the subject of “literature and scandal” seems to be an emerging trend within studies of European literature, relatively few academic works focus on American literature and scandal. Thus, this panel seeks to examine how Philip Roth, both the subject of scandal and one of its keenest interrogators, can shed new light on this conversation. 

Crossing Boundaries in Literature, Theory, and Culture

Purdue University Literature, Theory, and Culture Graduate Program
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 24, 2020

Graduate students in the Literature, Theory, and Cultural Studies program at Purdue University invite participation in their first annual symposium, “Crossing Boundaries in Literature, Theory, and Culture.” Boundaries represent real or imagined limits within various cultures, and negotiation of these boundaries enables innovation, transgression, as well as social, ethical, or political implications. Literature and other cultural artifacts work to challenge, straddle, or even reinforce boundaries, from national borders to the artificial limits scholars construct between time periods or fields of study. This symposium will investigate and encourage boundary crossings in literature, culture, and language in the broadest sense.
