Conference dates: Thursday, October 19- Friday, October 20, 2023, held in-person at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, CT, 06825

Her literary works, from The Women of Brewster Place (1982), a NationalBook Award winning novel, to her fictional memoir, 1996, portray the communities that Black women build to resist, survive, and even thrive against the racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia that confines and violates them.

Julie Tanner
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 8, 2023

Lydia Davis is an award-winning author of nine short story collections, a novel, two volumes of essays, and a translator of Maurice Blanchot, Michael Leiris, Marcel Proust, and Gustave Flaubert. Beginning her career amidst the second wave of postmodernism, her very short stories - some only a paragraph or even a sentence long - have drawn comparisons with postmodern metafiction, literary minimalism, and LANGUAGE poetry. Her eclectic interests and unexpected manipulation of genre and form, however, frequently defy categorisation.

Amanda Sikarskie, University of Michigan
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

We are soliciting chapter proposals for an edited collection on Fairytale in East Asian Fashion. Stories of yokai (Japan), yogwae (Korea), or yaoguai (China), such as “The Crane Wife” and “The Robe of Feathers,” manifest themselves everywhere in East Asian popular culture these days—from manga, anime / donghua / webtoons, and Pokémon, to fashion. One sees this phenomenon through brands such as Maison Kitsune, yokai-themed collections, street style, cosplay, and of course, traditional ethnic dress. Chapters may cover any fairytale or any fantastical creature that features strongly in Asian fairytale—baku, dokkaebi, kappa, kitsune / huli jing / gumiho, qilin, yuki onna, etc etc.

This conference provides an opportunity for scholars to re-examine early modern Europe’s fascination with civil conduct. What actions were performed in the name of civility, and who benefitted from the culture of civility that flourished in early modern Europe?
