Poetry and the Global Climate Crisis: Creative Approaches to Complex Challenges

updated: 
Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 3:46pm
Amatoritsro Ede/ Mount Allison University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

Our previous books, Poetry and Pedagogy across the Lifespan (2018) and Poetry and Sustainability in Education (forthcoming 2021/22), explore poetry’s crucial role in educating learners of all age groups to meet the challenges faced as we navigate current and future crises. While both of these volumes provide theoretical approaches and applicable tools and methods for teaching poetry in numerous contexts, the essays are heavily weighted towards European/North American poets and/or Western educational institutions. This new volume seeks to invite perspectives from around the globe, centering on comparativist or non-Western paradigms and practices.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 31, 2022

Sandstorm is a peer reviewed arts and literature journal edited by students and faculty at the University of Texas Permian Basin. We publish the best poetry, fiction, art, and photography from around the world and West Texas. The editors look for work with a social consciousness, but as for that, we do not have any bias that leans toward the lyric or narrative impulse, or formal or open--either is acceptable so long as the writer displays a sense of the organic. We also respect the objective correlative, shunning any detached abstraction.

Sunday, October 31, 2021

This seminar reevaluates both the Aristotelian notion of peripety and alternative approaches in global literary theory to describe a moment of abrupt change or reversal of action. In doing so, it applies a clearly defined focus on such examples that bring turning points together with an insecure, potentially dangerous medium: water.

The heterogenous character of protean form of travel writing—letters, journals, logbooks, diaries, memoir, journalistic pieces, guidebooks, confessional narratives, accounts of seafaring voyages, literary picaresque narratives, scientific explorations, artists’ escapades, ventures of urban flâneurs, self-exiled wanderers, and fiction—resists easy demarcation. Its heterogeneity lies in the revisionary stance brought about in each narrative through the distinguishing figure of the traveller, mode of narration, means of mapping, or redefining of the landscape.

Craft Critique Culture Graduate Student Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 14, 2022

CRAFT CRITIQUE CULTURE is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on the intersections of critical and creative approaches to writing, both within and beyond the academy. This year’s conference recognizes the spatial and temporal context within and beyond a written text. Within the text, we examine what has been mapped by the margins as well as the communities that have been marginalized by the borders of the page. Here, margins refer to the open spaces on the page — not inhabited by words, punctuation, ornamentation, etc. This year’s conference begins at the margins: whether it be the page, the camera lens, the pictorial frame, the margins of philosophy, the undercommons of the university, the peripheries of the city....margins are everywhere.

As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report concludes, our planet’s landscapes are rapidly undergoing drastic short-term transformative changes due to anthropogenic factors. The wholesale thawing of Arctic permafrost stands to exacerbate planetary warming to runaway levels (p. 1270); droughts in arid areas are massively exacerbated by agricultural activity (p. 1984); greenhouse gas emissions disrupt natural weather systems so greatly that new microclimates emerge (p. 3514); ocean acidification threatens the viability of aquatic ecosystems (p. 1200); biodiversity is in rapid decline around the globe (p. 211); sea level rise will reclaim vast areas of low-lying land (p.

Hotels & Crisis: Historical and Cultural Perspectives

25-26 June 2022

London, UK

Scholars exploring histories and stories of hotels have identified many ways in which they have been actively embroiled within civil conflicts. They are sites of violence and of refuge. They are communication and command centres. They are also sites for diplomacy which aims to bring conflict to an end. Hotels have often been ‘soft’ targets in conflicts, because of their high level of openness compared to other institutions. Potent symbolisms and distinctive affordances have made hotels significant shapers of conflict.

Migration is one of the most prominent cultural, socio-political, and economic questions of our time. In both industrialised and less developed countries, it would be hard to find people who do not have a personal experience of migration and its effects, which ultimately ‘become the hallmark of the age of migration’ (Castles et al., 2013). According to the World Migration Report 2020, international migrants consist of only 3.6% (281 million) of the world population, and they make ‘significant sociocultural, civic-political and economic contributions in origin and destination countries and community’ (WMR, 2020). However, a great majority of people do not migrate across borders; instead, a large number of people migrate within countries.
