MLA 2022 : CLCS-Medieval Forum

As Comparative Literature has diversified, however, medieval studies has often been aligned with the old Eurocentrisms. What can medieval studies contribute to the next phase of the discipline, the “age of anti-racism”?Please send 250 word abstracts to Michelle Warren (michelle.r.warren@dartmouth.edu) by March 15th.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 31, 2021

Deadline Extension: Due to an extension of our funding timeline, we are making a significant extension of this CFP deadline, which will now be July 31, 2021 (moving back work on the proposed edition by a semester as well). We hope this gives people more time to develop a proposal than the original tight turnaround, especially after the semester is over and people can take a step back from what is an unusually disruptive year. We are happy to talk to people about possible proposals. Updated CFP text is below.

Theorizing Zombiism II: Undead Again

 

29-31 July, 2021

 

University of Gothenburg

 

The zombie as an allegory for cultural, social, and scientific analysis spans almost every discipline including humanities, biology, mathematics, anthropology, economics, and political science. This range of use for the zombie narrative is a clear indication of its adaptability and viability as a distinct framework for critical theory. Theorizing Zombiism 2: Undead again will thus serve as a timely and much-needed platform for the development of international and interdisciplinary relationships between researchers, educators, practitioners and other interested parties.

PAMLA Session: The City and Canadian Literature and Authors

Friday, February 12, 2021 - 2:02pm

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

The theme of the 2021 PAMLA conference focuses on ideas and forms of cities, fictive cities, and symbolic cities, and on various representations of urban cultures and peoples. This panel focuses on real and fictional Canadian cities, expressing visions of city types, culture, and the development of identity through cityscapes in Canadian literature and/or by Canadian writers. Given Canada’s great size but small, dispersed population, “city” has divided Canada into the “Big Three” -- Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver -- and the rest, not only from the Canadian perspective, but also from external perspectives.
