We remember the grip of cool morning air around us as we waited for school in the morning. We still flinch when we see the silhouettes of the seagulls that stole our food, and inhale deeply when we catch the scent of fresh cut grass on the breeze. We all have favorite places, and locations that draw up memories every time we pass. Every place has its own things that make it special, and its own way that it fuels the lives and imaginations of those who live nearby.

CONCEPT NOTE AND CALL FOR PAPERS
The sixth MARS symposium looks towards a re-consideration of medieval and Renaissance genres of literature, with an emphasis on problematic or borderline cases where a given text belonging to a particular genre is questionable, or where problems are caused by various interpretations or definitions of the genre itself. Those genres can be roughly divided into two groups. One of them would consist of the genres that are often associated with the long period extending approximately between the years 700 and 1700, even though not all of them originate from that epoch, or are limited by it.
Intellectus invites you to submit research articles, book reviews and interviews on African philosophy, black studies, and applied philosophy (especially in ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics), feminism, international law, public policy, and socio-political philosophy in their relevance to Africa or African heritage. This CFP is for Volume 1 Number 2, for the year 2022.
The Submission Process
Resources for American Literary Study, a journal of archival and bibliographical scholarship in American literature, invites submissions for our upcoming 2022 issue. Covering all periods of American literature, RALS welcomes both traditional and digital approaches to archival and bibliographical analysis.
Founded in 1971, RALS remains the only major scholarly periodical of its kind. Each issue includes, in addition to archival and bibliographical research, related book reviews and a unique “Prospects” essay that identifies new directions in the study of major authors. Our editorial board consists of leading scholars from an array of fields and subfields in American literary study.
Call for Contributions to a Proposed Collected Edition
Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work
Disruptive Labor: Early Modern Gender, Capital, and Illicit Work interrogates how some labor is denigrated and yet simultaneously supportive of the formation of the capitalistic markets upon which European nations expanded empires. By focusing on how these patriarchal societies see specific types of work as gendered, this edition explores how the gendering of labor establishes dynamic markets as either culturally sanctioned or illegitimate and, in turn, grapples with how cultural approbation undergirds economic growth.

This panel will spur conversation about ethics instruction across courses like business writing, engineering communication, and health science writing. Ethics instruction is a consideration in accreditation processes for disciplines like engineering, and often such instruction is assigned to the writing classroom. This panel examines how ethics are taught and assessed in writing courses; it seeks new assignments, new pedagogies, and new rubrics that take into account instructional constraints like time and training.
For consideration, please contact email@example.com by June 14, 2022.
This panel will invite faculty that teach in Professional and STEM writing to discuss their career trajectory. The panel is intended for graduate students seeking to diversify their teaching portfolios, graduates contemplating new career paths, department administrators looking to develop new curricula and courses, and faculty interested in different approaches to writing instruction. It will ask participants to discuss opportunities and challenges they have seen both in the institutional identity of these writing courses and in their subject matter and student body. More specifically, the panel will address the relationship between English departments, literature courses, freshman composition, and these vocational writing courses.
The aim of this conference is to situate the rise of the Far-Right in conjunction with academic spaces and practices i.e., to understand the macroscopic role Academia has in producing, challenging, and responding to the proliferation of this adaptive ideology. How do scholarly practices and the Far-right interact? How do Far-right governments impact Academia, both nationally and globally? Why are Academia’s responses to and/or co-options by the Far-right so culturally impactful?

Venti: Air, Experience, and Aesthetics invokes both the number ‘twenty’ and ‘the winds.’ Conceived in the year 2020, the journal is a forum for discussions centered on the year’s foregrounding of air, its related themes, and historical, interdisciplinary, and critical resonances. Ventiasks: how do we become aware of something invisible and of things that are always in the air — such as the air itself? Investigating this query in a series of thematic issues, Venti explores the indexical qualities of air and our awareness of it through effects and affects.

It will explore the convergences, tensions and inter-dependences that star-driven texts and franchise cultures have constantly negotiated within the entertainment industry, on a global, historical and multiplatform scale. It aims to analyse franchise sites and strategies as significant nexus where an understanding of stars is created, managed and interpreted, and to analyse the place and value of the star to media franchise production.

PAMLA 2022 RHETORICAL THEORY PANEL
CALL FOR PAPERS
UCLA, November 11-13
Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack (USC)
This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.
Our Call for Papers focuses on an interdisciplinary study of sustainability culture and the Agroecological Transition. In our research at NCHU/IAC, we find that the same core question arises over and time again: how is it possible that even though we already have all the knowledge and technology required to live and farm sustainably, we do not seem to be able to fully achieve this? We postulate that the answers are found in how we form our culture and how we relate to the technology that gives us our comforts. Which values do we have, how do we think the world works, and do we really want to be sustainable, no matter what?

After the New Oxford Shakespeare credited Christopher Marlowe as co-author of 1, 2, and 3 Henry VI in 2016, Shakespeare’s short-lived contemporary has drawn a wave of renewed interest. Since then, new editions of Doctor Faustus, The Massacre at Paris, and The Jew of Malta have appeared, three collections of essays have been published, and a well-attended international Marlowe conference was held in Wittenberg, Germany. Marlowe’s plays continue to be a staple of contemporary non-Shakespearean performance with recent celebrated productions at the RSC’s Swan Theatre and the National Theatre.
