deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Contemporary women writers have long been at the forefront of diverse conversations regarding race, society, and culture. From the works of legendary greats, such as Maya Angelou, Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, and Nawal Ed Saadawi, to the vibrant writing of Octavia Butler, Bernardine Evaristo, and Jenny Zhang, to name just a few, contemporary women authors have elucidated the wide and varied experiences of race across time, genre, and forms. Such work also frequently attends, in nuanced ways, to the lived experience and dynamics of intersectionality.

extended deadline for abstracts: please submit ASAP

Australian universities have been recently criticized in the media for failing to provide a world-class humanities undergraduate curriculum, in ways that appear to have a domino effect on the teaching of English in secondary schools. In the humanities, our universities lack the faculty numbers of their overseas counterparts and are vulnerable to government disinterest.

These issues and recent shocks such as the shift to online learning due to the pandemic, reduced tutorial support, and the promotion of STEM and vocationally-focused learning have triggered a new reflectiveness about teaching and learning, particularly in the subject of English.

Extended Deadline: Religion in American Literature

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Annual Conference (Nov. 11-14, 2021)
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

This session examines the relationship between religion and American literature. It welcomes papers that explore the intersection between religion, politics, and literature.  How can literary texts help us understand the discourses of the religious right or the left and their search for community?  How does faith contribute both to harmful or positive visions of community?  What can literature teach us about the type of faith that will allow us to create and embrace “the beloved community” introduced by Josiah Royce, and later highlighted by Martin Luther King, Jr.?

Proposals that engage with the conference theme of "City of God, City of Destruction” are of particular interest.

The 'periphery' has long been the scene for the most pressing wagers of urban, economic and social development: in its various, often unfortunately negative aspects, the periphery constitutes a node of transition and inevitable connection between the 'centre' and the 'outside' of the city, maintaining opposing characteristics towards both, and acting as an identity-creating workshop for 'middle-earth society', where degradation is mixed with opportunities and is redeemed by creative energy.

Food and food practices constitute a significant part of national identity. People derive their sense of belonging through food cultures, which embody the memories of community and group membership. Eating Culture: The Poetics and Politics of Food posits cooking as an act that “performs cultural memory” (Doring, Heide & Muhleisen 2003) and reinforces communal relationships. While the Covid-19 pandemic that began in 2020 forced everyone to practice social distancing, shutting all social gatherings and communal activities. Food is one of the few things, which nevertheless aided in the continuance of social interaction.
