International Conference: "Narratives of Displacement"

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:16pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 15, 2022

*Selected papers will be published in a post-conference volume with ISBN.

The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

International Conference on Ecocriticism and Environmental Studies

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 15, 2022

Multiple environmental crises are increasingly inescapable at both transnational and local levels and the role of the humanities in addition to technology and politics is more and more recognized as central for exploring and finding solutions. Representations of nature’s agency have become central to many studies conducted in literature, culture studies, philosophy, history, sociology or political science. This conference aims to explore the relationship between the physical environment and text in its broader meaning as well as analyse the social concerns raised by environmental crises.

Conference panels will be related, but not limited, to:

International Conference on Myths, Archetypes and Symbols: “Models and Alternatives”

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Humankind has always sought to explain its origins and the mysteries of life to map personal and collective boundaries, and to secure its sense of identity through the power of everyday events and occurrences. Exemplary accounts of imaginary happenings and supernatural creatures from a time beyond history and memory explain the genesis of the universe, the making of a living thing, the formation of an attitude or the inception of an institution. The essence of these traditional narratives reflects a certain system of values and code of self-conduct of a group of individuals bound together by social and cultural ties, and the cardinal virtues and vices of human nature captured in a conventional configuration.

International Conference on Poetry Studies: “Poetry Between Creation and Interpretation“

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

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.

Call for papers (online conference) — Expanded Poetry: The Poetics and Politics of Repetition

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
Institute for Comparative Literature — Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Porto
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

The history of poetry is a history of repetition. Poetry has always been shaped by repetition, not only through the repetitive mechanisms of language itself but also through the meter, rhyme, structure, alliterations, anaphors, parallelisms, among other kinds of repetition at the structural, phonetic, rhetorical or lexical levels. In addition, repetition is also crucial for understanding literary periods and movements, as well as for grasping the relationships they establish with each other. Crucially, research has demonstrated how even the discourses of the avant-gardes, with their proposal of radical variation, are often linked to previous historical periods.

Reading Spatially: Summer School for PhD Researchers (Tampere, Finland, 20-22 June 2022)

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
Tampere University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 31, 2021

This summer school, aimed at PhD researchers with a spatially oriented project in fields such as literary and cultural studies, film and visual culture studies, or cultural geography, asks what it means to read spatially – or to read for space – in practice. Recent decades have seen an explosion of spatially oriented approaches to the analysis of literary texts and other forms of cultural production. Ranging from literary geography and cultural cartography to geocriticism, geopoetics, material ecocriticism, and new forms of spatial phenomenology, these approaches offer exciting avenues for thinking about the many dimensions of real and imagined space.

SAMLA African American Literature Panel

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:14pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 25, 2022

This traditional session welcomes submission on any aspect of African American Literature that attends to how black writers use literature to bring out discussion on climate injustice. With the conference theme of "change," readers of African American Literature often miss the criticism of climatic injustice that is present in much literary work, especially of 20th Century Black writers. From Zora Hurston, to Richard Wright, to Jean Toomer, etc., there are many instances of a critique of climatic injustices that are often either misread or simply glossed over. This panel aims to reconsider black writers as the leading figures in both ecocriticism and ecofeminism.

Changes in Asian / Asian American Studies and Its Pedagogies (SAMLA 94 panel)

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 25, 2022

Since the emergence of Asian American Studies as an intellectual field of studies almost 60 years ago, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies has not only evolved as a whole but has also had to endure ongoing changes and readaptations. Now, perhaps more than ever, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies calls for new changes or perhaps even a new vision, to help us cope with the many living realities and meanings—whether racially, culturally, historically, or politically, just to name a few—on which we stand.

SAMLA 94 ASLE Affiliated Session - The Plantationocene Past, Present, and Future

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:03pm
SAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 1, 2022

While the term “Anthropocene” is frequently used to describe the current geological era of human-created and accelerated climate change, multiple other terms have emerged as scholars expand their understanding of the interconnectedness of human endeavors and their consequences. A useful alternative is “Plantationocene,” which emphasizes the economization of life and places the foundations of global climate change within the intertwined plantation systems of the preceding centuries, including how they continue to be reproduced in new, nefarious ways in the present day. This session seeks presentations that take any aspect of the plantation and its enduring legacies as a starting point for interrogating literature.
