The North Carolina Literary Review (NCLR) is seeking submissions of interviews and literary criticism for a special feature section on the theme of “Disability (in) Literature in North Carolina" for its 2024 issues. Many North Carolina writers have written about their own experiences with chronic illness or disability, from Reynolds Price’s meditations on the spinal cancer that rendered him paraplegic in A Whole New Life: An Illness and a Healing (1994) to James Tate Hill’s recent memoir Blind Man’s Bluff (2021) about his experiences with Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy, a condition that left him legally blind.

We are seeking papers that examine the author’s relationship to American evangelicalism. Robinson’s spiritual vision has been shaped by the writings of Jonathan Edwards, who is considered to be the founding father of American evangelicalism. How does Robinson’s body of work lead us to think critically about the evangelical tradition in the United States? How do her essays and novels, particularly Gilead, provide a counter-narrative to the discourses found in modern and contemporary American evangelicalism? In what ways can they respond to the inc
The third Summer School of the ReportAGES research project, a five-day graduate course for Master’s and PhD students – throughout Europe and, potentially, South Africa – of Journalism, Communications, Media Studies, English, German, or French Literature, Cultural Studies or Government Policy, will explore how historical trends in narrative literary journalism in France, Germany, England and the Netherlands from the Anglo-Boer War to post apartheid reshaped the media landscape of each country, distinguishing a European development of the genre not just from its Anglo-American cousins but also from each other.

Negation | Call for papers
Graduate student conference, dept. of German Studies, Brown University | Feb. 17 & 18, 2023 | in person
What “no” does, is not nothing. This proposition implies that we have understood what it is to say no, that its effects are predictable, and that it is involved with “doing,” with “being,” and with “things.” It also asks us to answer the question: what is “not-no,” and what is “yes”? Negation is not only not- positing, but, depending on the thinker, it is the engine of history, the enigma of the will, the guarantor or violator of being, the weapon of oppression, the foothold of theology, the urgent task of language.
Indigeneity and the Greco-Roman World: Modern and Ancient Responses
27th Annual UVA Classics Graduate Student Colloquium
Conducted in person at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, March 18, 2023
Keynote Speaker: Craig Williams (University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign)
In July 2022, some meteorologists renamed the most extreme of the heat waves with the name of "Apocalypse 4800", in reference to the exceptional temperatures recorded at high altitudes and the consequent rise of the freezing level at the summit of Monte Bianco (4800 meters). Net of a rhetoric rooted in a series of contradictory emotions – that place human subject between «fear and domination, veneration and control» (Scaffai 2016) towards nature – it is undeniable how the current climate crisis leads us to reflect on the precarious equilibrium of the Anthropocene (Crutzen 2002). But in becoming culturally dominant (Benedetti 2021), the Anthropocene raises further questions about the role of literature and storytelling in a broader sense.

Horror literature’s resurgence in recent years has yielded huge results for the genre - not only a proliferation of new and diverse horror fictions but also an interest in reclaiming critically dismissed titles of the past. Whether disdained as pulpy trash or ignored for appealing to youth demographics, a large swathe of pre-2000s horror literature has frequently been deemed unworthy of critical analysis.

The antisocial declaration “I don’t care” meets “we don’t care”:
a mode of self-care grows into collective care.
-- Xine Yao Disaffected (2021)
The term ‘modernity’ signifies a brand new age, distinguishing human experiences and values as different from the past. From the mid-nineteenth century, ‘modern life’ began to denote transformations in all aspects, such as technology, economics, industry and urbanisation. In the cultural field, modernity is grounded in critical methods for creating new values to promote the progress of humanity.
