Call for Papers: Willa Cather’s Letters/Willa Cather and Letters

As the Complete Letters of Willa Cather is nearing completion, Cather's letters are available and accessible to scholars and researchers in an unprecedented way. To mark this moment in Cather scholarship, Cather Studies will devote a volume to essays that engage with Cather's letters in new and deeper ways that may have been previously unavailable to scholars. Melissa J. Homestead, editor of Cather Studies and co-editor of the Complete Letters, will edit the volume.

A variety of approaches and topics are welcome, and essays may focus exclusively on Cather or Cather in relation to other figures.

Animal(ity) in Southern Literature (In-Person Panel)

updated: 
Monday, March 14, 2022 - 2:29pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

This traditional session welcomes submissions on any representation of nonhuman animals or animality in southern literature from the last century. With the development of posthumanism and human-animal studies over the last few decades, nonhuman animals in literature invite readers to no longer consider them as only symbols of human experience, but instead as literary agents of cultural change for both human and nonhuman worlds. Particularly, this panel seeks to explore how those nonhuman animals are active in southern literature. Panelists may be interested in examining nonhuman animals or animality in a single southern text, a southern author’s oeuvre, or an entire southern genre.

Call for Chapter Proposals for Edited Collection -- Retreating to the (Modern) Past: Vintage and Cottagecore Lifestyles in the Digital Era

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Modern life has become defined in many ways by our digital experiences, and it is in this technological environment that a retreat to an idealized version of the past has been increasingly realized and depicted through social media. The distinctive aesthetics of cottagecore, dark and light academia, and vintage movements represent creative cross sections through which individuals blend pop culture, literature, fantasy, art, and lifestyle elements in an often fantastical, romanticized, or idealized version of the past—one inherently informed by and expressed through a modern, digital present.

Violence and Autonomy: Indigenizing Speculative Fiction (PAMLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, March 11, 2022 - 11:40am
Carlos Tkacz / University of Nevada, Las Vegas
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Speculative fiction has become the space in which imaginings of the future proliferate not totally free of the specter of history but free from the fatalism that subaltern communities often are forced to cope with under the weight of that history. As such, Indigenous writers, both in the US and in the rest of the world, have turned to the genre as a way to construct futurisms of survivance and resistance. If the weight of history has and does manifest itself in violence, both physical and otherwise, then the question of autonomy is central, for violence is perhaps the most basic violation of the individual and the communal.

Jewish Los Angeles "Jewish Literature and Culture" panel at the Pacific Modern Languages AssociationNovember 11-13, 2022 From Boyle Heights to Hollywood, and from Santa Monica to the Valley, Los Angeles has been a site for fantastic projections, colonial encounters, and organized struggles for Jews “moving West” since the late 19th century. This panel explores how L.A. as the other “promised land” is figured in the writings, films, artworks, and music of Jewish Californians and immigrants.  From its settlement as a supposedly empty “virgin territory” to its more recent description as a city that has no memory of itself, Los Angeles is often stylized as a place without identity, history, or borders (Baudrillard, Mike Davis, Thom Andersen, Vanessa Place).
