Ethical Crossroads in Literary Modernism
Ethical Crossroads in Literary Modernism
The accelerated evolution of technologies greatly affects our social practices and transforms how we use, teach, and learn languages.
The democratization of access to information and the facilitation of authorship destabilize social roles once anchored in stability, calling into question what it means to be a teacher, a learner or even a user of the language.

Eastern Himalayas and Border Thinking in a Post-COVID 19 World

It is difficult to imagine a society where humor is completely absent. From ancient times to the present day, this phenomenon performs the most important functions: from psychological détente to reflection of the socio-cultural and political atmosphere in which this or that community resides. Since the XVIII century, it has also become an instrument of mass communication and political struggle, and becomes an integral part of the mass media.
HUNGER AND WASTE
Volume 39, Number 2, Fall 2021
Issue Editor: Isabelle Meuret
This issue of Literature and Medicine will interrogate expressions of hunger and waste in both literary and biomedical contexts.
Hunger is a physiological disposition, a daily preoccupation, and a metaphor for desire. On another scale, global hunger—leading to malnutrition and starvation—affects hundreds of millions living in poverty. As for waste, the dearth, careless use, or squandering of resources, together with climate change and other environmental challenges, have raised new concerns about food supplies and unequal access.
Call for Chapters: Screening Controversy
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
ALLUVIUM Rolling Call for Guest and Contributing Editors
Alluvium are looking for guest editors to thematically lead and edit three special issues in 2021. We
are also looking for contributing editors to assist with general issues of the journal.
Alluvium is an open access, BACLS affiliated scholarly journal which is dedicated to twenty-first
literary criticism. We are run by postgraduates, and we primarily publish academic articles of
approximately 2000 words, as well as interviews and book reviews. Our contributors range from
postgraduates and early career researchers to independent scholars and established academics.
This panel aims to examine fictional texts which represent an alternate past or future in order to resist dominant narratives. Papers which address the following questions (and others) are welcome:
How does speculative fiction which presents an alternate past or future allow us to critique the present?
How does imagining "what if" prompt us to question "what next?"
How do we use possible worlds theory to understand what is possible in the world, or unnatural narratology to interrogate what is "natural"?
How do Afro-, Indigenous, and/or Latinx futurisms, in particular, work as part of larger movements of social action?
ALA (American Literature Association) 2021 Boston Panel Proposal
Panel Title: Changing Perspectives: Adjusting American Literature Lenses
Due to the Covid Lockdown this past year, the ALA 2020 conference was canceled. However, we have been informed that a 2021 conference will be held in Boston. To help reconcile the lost panels from this year's canceled conference, the ALA has reached out and offered for those panels that were accepted to reply. While this panel was accepted for the 2020 conference, we have since then lost one of our presenters. Therefore, we would like to extend an invite to anyone interested in joining our panel. Our panel description is:
Scholars at all stages of their career are invited to take part in a one-day interdisciplinary symposium hosted by the School of English, University Cork, to explore the diverse roles historically played by contagion/outbreak narratives and disease metaphors. We invite 15-minute papers that engage with a variety of cultural forms, such as literature, film, television and photography. Examples of relevant topics include the function served by fear of contagion in the othering process, contemporary vampirism as a metaphor for sexually-transmitted diseases, zombiism as a metaphor for capitalism, and why epidemics and plagues that stay confined to Africa or Asia rarely form the plots of novels or films.
