CALL FOR PAPERS
The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992 — the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States — will hold its first virtual conference, and calls for presentations situated in colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.
In the 31 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.
With apologies for cross-posting, I’d like to bring your attention to the Barbara L. Packer Fellowship, a short-term research fellowship supported by the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society and the American Antiquarian Society. Please distribute widely.

In cosmogonical texts like the Navajo Myth, the search for an ecology of inter-species relations is threatened by the meeting of the horizons of the sky and the earth which unhinges the stable cosmos. In narratives of climate dystopias like Bruno Arpaia's Something Out There (2016) and ecological parables like Wu Ming-Yi's The Man with Compound Eyes (2011), the threats of expulsions from habitable places and the severing of human relationships are explored within apocalyptic frameworks of planetary harm.

As early as the 1920’s, Robert Musil remarked on the enormous effort it takes to stand still in a world that demands constant motion. Reflecting on the zooming street he sees through his window,the protagonist of Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften comments:
“Könnte man die Sprünge der Aufmerksamkeit messen, die Leistungen der Augenmuskeln, die Pendelbewegungen der Seele und alle die Anstrengungen, die ein Mensch vollbringen muss, um sich im Fluß einer Straße aufrecht zu halten, es käme vermutlich… eine Größe heraus, mit der verglichen die Kraft, die Atlas braucht, um die Welt zu stemmen.”
12th Annual African, African American, and Diaspora Studies (AAAD) Interdisciplinary Conference
Hosted virtually by James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA
Feb 16-19, 2022
Deadline Extended: November 1, 2021
We are seeking panelist proposals for the accepted Children’s Literature Association (ChLA 2022) conference panel “Sustaining Black Lives: Ecological Imaginaries in African American Books for Young Readers.” The theme of this year’s conference is “City in the Forest” and will take place in Atlanta Georgia from June 2nd-4th in Atlanta, Georgia. This panel seeks papers that correlate race and gender with Black sustainability issues like environmental inequity and global migration. We invite papers on subject matters ranging from realist literature to fantasy and science fiction, from the twentieth century to the twenty-first, from American-born to immigrant authors.
Childhood is a crucial stage in the formation of personality, value orientations, self-image and ideas about the world. However, the subject of childhood has become the target of research relatively recently. A wide range of problems and an interdisciplinary approach to this phenomenon have extended the boundaries of the academic and professional research interests. Nowadays, the study of children and childhood is an integral part of the humanities and social sciences. We invite psychologists, educators, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural and literary scholars, historians, art experts, lawyers, linguists and specialists in other fields to participate in the conference.
Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:
War has been a constant aspect of human eras since ancient times. In fact, the idea of conflict as a means of achieving useful results has always been present in the history of evolution. Even if after the end of the Second World War, when a new peaceful approach towards dispute resolution has been promoted by the most powerful nations in the world, tensions have risen again in the last few decades, particularly in some territories of the world.
Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.
