CALL FOR PAPERS: THIRD STONE JOURNAL
November 13-15, 2020 | Jacksonville, FL
SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 29 MAY 2020.
We are currently soliciting unpublished, quality research articles/case studies in the fields of ELT, Linguistics, Literature, Discourse and Translation Studies for Volume: 08, Issue: 02 [April-June, 2020 Issue] of IJ-ELTS.
The papers can address issues in/related to the following research disciplines-
Third Stone, a journal devoted to Afrofuturism and its forms, seeks submissions to build a comprehensive annotated bibliography of source material on the Black fantastic, including traditional print sources (books, magazines, journal articles, newspapers, and reviews) and digital media (audio, video, film, and websites).
[Deadline Extended] The Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on topics relevant to the SAMLA 92 conference theme: “Scandal! Literature & Provocation: Breaking Rules, Making Texts.” The works explored may be from any ‘literary’ medium including poetry, prose, film, or video games, and explore concepts of scandal, rebellion, resistance, creation, liminality, or precarity relative to the South[s]. We especially welcome papers that focus on the intersections of the South and lines of identity including race, ethnicity, gender, and class.
Identity and Liminality in African American Literature
This panel seeks presentations about the proclivity of African American racial space. That is, this panel is interested in when and where conceptions of spatial race formalities are conducted. We can think of “space” as time, place, and movement—the constant liminal changing of identities. This panel invites abstracts, of no more than 250 words, for presentations on African American literature at the Midwest Modern Language Association conference. Some topics might include:
I am editing the Routledge Handbook of Vegan Studies, which is currently under contract with the press. Handbooks are typically 30-35 chapters, with chapters being roughly 6000 words (footnotes and works cited inclusive). They aim to provide a cutting edge, comprehensive assessment of the field and will be an essential reference title and benchmark publication for the subject.
Due to a late withdrawal by a contributor, I am seeking proposals for a final needed chapter examining race and veganism that reflects knowledge of the field of Vegan Studies, Critical Race Studies, and that builds on extant work in these disciplines. The essay should provide a broad overview of the issues and tensions that have shaped the discourse on veganism and race.

This year’s conference theme, “Cultures of Collectivity,” in some ways, seems tailor-made for the Religion and Literature permanent section. Religious communities, either local, national, or global, come to mind. However, we might also think of “collectivity” more broadly. Because the subject of Religion and Literature covers all genres, subgenres, regions, religions and folklore we welcome proposals that address works and writers who explore any aspect of “Cultures of Collectivity.”
Possible approaches to this topic might include examinations of how literature explores:

Open call for panelist proposals: Reparative Turn in Practice and the Relativity of MonstersPlease submit proposals on or before: April 15, 2020
This open call is for submission of presentations that if selected, will be included in a full panel proposal which will be submitted for the 109th College Art Association annual conference set to take place February 10-13, 2021 at the Hilton New York Midtown, New York, NY
Call for Papers:
This panel seeks presentations about racial identity/experience and time in modern and contemporary literature, visual-art, and performance cultures, broadly and imaginatively conceived. We are especially interested in papers about irregular conceptions of racialized/black time, such as those that draw on ideas of absurdity or abstractionism to discuss race as it relates to time and phenomenological inquiry, the staging of temporal stasis or acceleration, and questions of audience and presentness, duration, or movement. We welcome presentations about African American expressive practices, but also those that focus on works by artists belonging to other racialized communities.

The 14th Amendment stipulates that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Yet the conferrence of the rights of U.S. citizenship to Indigenous peoples, descendants of enslaved Africans, nonwhite immigrants, and refugees has been repeatedly contested and warped by and in federal and state law. The full expression of national citizenship by nonwhite peoples in the U.S. South has been mutually shaped and conscripted by the experience and legacies of Jim Crow, indigenous removal, and anti-immigrant and refugee policies.
