Being Undocumented and Belonging in US Ethnic Literature

updated: 
Monday, November 1, 2021 - 1:44pm
Sherry Johnson/Society for the Study of Multi-Ethnic Literature of the United States (MELUS)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 14, 2022

Understandings of what it means to be undocumented remain a part of critical discussions in the US -- whether about immigration status or a citizen’s sex designation or voter eligibility on official documents, for example. MELUS invites individual paper proposals that explore what it means to be undocumented -- legally, culturally or otherwise -- in fiction, memoir, or poetry by ethnic American writers. Specifically, we are interested in papers that consider how authors (re)imagine what it means to be undocumented -- and how intersections of identities of historically excluded populations function to further understanding of being undocumented in such works.

Measuring Pluralism / Open Call for Data Scientists

Plural / Pluriel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Pluralism is a very central but elusive contemporary value. Pluralism is the belief that diversity is beneficial to society. Most of us would agree, but what does diversity exactly mean? How to measure it and tell whether a society is more or less diverse?

Cultural pluralism, political pluralism and value pluralism all have slightly different meanings, but they all share the belief that coexistence of diverse opinions, ways of life and value systems is enriching for all members of a society.
