This panel seeks to create a panel in the CEA conference by bringing instructors together to examine interesting approaches that can be taken to teach the world literature survey for college students. Instructors may talk about their experiences of teaching the world lit survey: what approaches/topics did you choose to organize and structure the world lit survey syllabus? What were some of the texts that worked well with students? What were some of the interesting assignments you gave to your students? What class activities/projects did you assign?

When we talk about the eighteenth-century and adaptation, we frequently talk about adaptations of eighteenth-century literature and art, often into film. Yet adaptation was a common practice during the eighteenth century as well.
Objectives of the conference: Through the various oral papers that will be presented around
the autobiographical writings by African women, the following objectives are targeted:
- Understand the complexity of the autobiographical genre and women's paths in Africa;
- Understand women’s reality in Africa;
- Analyze the dynamics of gender relations in Africa;
- Understand patriarchal societies in Africa and particularly how women negotiate their
identity/ integration/ emancipation;
- Learn and inform about the living conditions and the emancipation of African women;
- Appreciate the weight of ancestral and patriarchal laws in the moral and intellectual
development of women in Africa;
I have 12 great essays for a volume called Mythological Equines in Film (Series: Equine Creations: Imagining Horses in Literature and Film), which is meant to be paired with Mythological Equines in Children’s Literature (Series: Equine Creations: Imagining Horses in Literature and Film), which is full with 21 essays.
In order to keep them approximately the same size, I am looking for 2-3 more essays to round out the film collection. Harry Potter and Narnia are well covered, but other topics are open.
The abstract deadline is Sept. 30, 2021. The deadline for essays will be February 1, 2022.

Currently consisting of seven (eight if one counts The Curse of La Llorona) interconnected films with additional entries in the pipeline, The Conjuring universe (2013-present) serves as one of the touchstone horror franchises of the modern era. Despite rising to industry prominence as one of the most profitable horror franchises of all time and one of the few properties to effectively execute a shared universe story world, The Conjuring universe has only been the subject of a few studies where it is often assessed alongside analogous, but thematically different, films such as Paranormal Activity (2009) and Insidious (2011).

Ever since the publication of Foucault’s multi-volume work The History of Sexuality, scholarship, whether theoretically, historically, or literarily minded, has reckoned with the call to develop less anachronistic methodologies to analyze premodern expressions of desire. While scholars such as David Halperin and Susan Lanser have risen to the challenge of Foucault’s text and expanded his analysis to address feminine and queer desires, both generally and within their specific periods of study, these theoretical and methodological strides in the history of sexuality have penetrated fields at various rates. This seminar seeks to help remedy this disciplinary issue, particularly within the literature of medieval studies and classics.

UPDATED: The witch is a figure of cultural production. She is a representation of the layers of history and cultural context on the treatment, stereotyping, reception, and representation of powerful women who do not fit into patriarchal structures of power. Whether she be a symbol of women’s disempowerment or a feminist symbol of empowerment, the witch stands as a saturated figure in history, literature, art, and film. This panel is interested in the representation of the witch on a broad scale of culture -- ranging from myth to folklore, to Shakespeare, to WandaVision. The aim of this panel is to bring together a collection of papers that will overlap in the themes of the body, gender, and power.

I thought of the fishes of the water, the fowls of the air, the wild beasts of the forests, all appeared to be free, to go where they pleased, and I was an unhappy slave.
Henry Bibb, Narrative of the Life and Adventures of Henry Bibb, an American Slave (1849)
This edited collection aims to theorize and contextualize transnational manifestations of the “millennial novel,” a term that has been used often derogatively to describe contemporary fiction from a generation of writers living through unprecedented historical upheavals. The book will not debate the use of the term, but rather provide an initial theorization of its forms and primary concerns. Characterised, we might say, by rootlessness, anxiety, ennui, and a general detachment from the governing socioeconomic structures of neoliberal modern life, the millennial novel is a genre at once over-debated and under-examined.

Caste-based discrimination (or Racial discrimination) is ever-present in most parts of the world today. Within India, caste has been a significant movement driven by binaries such as pure vs impure, Aryans vs Dravidians, and high vs low castes, including socio-economic class structure. This edited volume will discuss Dr B. R. Ambedkar’s (April 14 1891 - December 6 1956) autobiography known as Waiting for Visa from multiple perspectives. The aim is to explore contemporary India and her social, political, educational, and religion to changing socio-economic-political-religious conditions keeping the Waiting for Visa at the centre.

The world as we know it is undergoing dynamic transformation. Many gains have been made in recent decades towards loosening the grip of some of the belief systems that have enabled many systemic inequalities in the modern world. The ideological underpinnings of white supremacy, heteropatriarchy and coloniality, for example, have been rigorously challenged and are being steadily eroded, leading to changes in legal frameworks, social practices and the norms of acceptable everyday behaviour. The highly visible and vocal Black Lives Matter movement, which regained international momentum following the murder of George Floyd, has become a widely recognized recent manifestation of this refusal to abide the injustices and indignities of the past.
