MLA 2025: “Black Femme Visible Literatures and Histories—Traditions, Lineages, Traces, & Roots”

updated:

Courtney Murray
deadline for submissions:

Deborah E. McDowell’s 1993 essay, “In the First Place: Making Frederick Douglass and the Afro-American Narrative Tradition,” issues a call to “start putting an end to beginnings even those that would put woman in the first place” or a “reformulation or refocusing of genealogy as a concept of analysis” (56-7). This roundtable seeks papers that complicate how and in which ways we make visible the roots, sites, and lineages of Black women’s literary and historical production from the eighteenth century forward. Papers can interrogate visibility as a practice or theory of recovery, recentering, and resituating that we also must remain critical of even when establishing “firsts” or origins of Black women’s historical and literary traditions.

(Call for Chapters: Edited Volume) Horror Capital: Class, Material, and Production Analyses of Horror Entertainment

Wednesday, March 6, 2024 - 9:29pm

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 17, 2024

The cinematic horror genre depends on a system of oppression, domination, and subordination. Although horror is deeply embedded within the politics of representation and social subjugation, we recognize an explicit lack within its scholarship (across disciplines) regarding class and historical materialism. This collected volume, which has emerged after years of collaboration and collective conversations, wishes to remedy this absence: we call for a comprehensive examination of horror as it intersects socio-economic class issues, brutal capitalism, cultural systems of excess, and rugged individualism.

Traductions Trompeuses: Deceitful Translations in French and Francophone Literature and Art

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

What happens when an author, playwright, or filmmaker choses to embed a translation in a fictional setting? This panel will consider the many forms of fictional, imaginary, and somewhat deceitful translations - from pseudotranslation (a text written as if it had been translated from a foreign language, even though no foreign language original exists) to self-translation (when an author composes a text in one language and translates it into another) - to interrogate the act of translation as both a motor and an obstacle in a work of fiction.

Cultural History

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, May 30, 2024

The Cultural History panel seeks to revivify the political or social intersections that exist between text and context, including interdisciplinary aspects of culture. While papers that explore the continuities between history and film, history and literature, or history as it interweaves with marginalized aesthetic traditions would receive preference, excerpts of longer, ongoing projects that examine how cultural formations are “translated” or subsumed into historical trajectories would be particularly welcome. Submissions that not only practice cultural history by invoking the liminality of borderlands, but also critically reflect upon that practice are also encouraged.

What is the Young Rhetoricians' Conference?

The Young Rhetoricians’ Conference (YRC) began in 1985 at San Jose State University. From its inception, YRC has been a place for those who teach rhetoric at the university level to share research about teaching rhetoric and techniques for teaching rhetoric. “Young” refers not to the age of the rhetoricians but refers instead to rhetors with a willingness, in the mind, to dance whenever possible. You can learn more about YRC at our website.

THE SOUTHERN GOTHIC AT PCAS/ ACAS 2024

updated: 
Wednesday, March 6, 2024 - 2:10pm
Popular Culture / American Culture Association in the South
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 15, 2024

Steeped in the wide-flung diaspora of the Gothic mode, the Southern Gothic is one of the most prominent ways the South is represented in media and culture. Represented in the works of writers as varied as Carson McCullers, Flannery O’Connor, and William Faulkner to Cormac McCarthy, Cherie Priest, and Jesmyn Ward, whether categorized as a form, a style, or a genre, the Southern Gothic is bound up with the specificity of regional cultural anxieties about race, class, gender, sexuality, history, and geographic identity itself. From its most stereotypical depictions to more nuanced, complex interpretations, the Southern Gothic shapes the wider perception of regional identities in ways that invite our contemporary scholarly engagement.
