As illustrated even recently by the French magazine America, the « special » relation between France and US literature is long-standing. In the World Republic of Letters (2004 for the English translation), Pascale Casanova developed the idea of Paris as a “Greenwich meridian” of world literature while emphasizing the importance of “[t]he great, often polyglot, cosmopolitan figures of the world of letters [who] act in effect as foreign exchange brokers, responsible for exporting from one territory to another texts whose literary value they determine by virtue of this very activity” (21).
“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I took the one most travelled by,” Aunt Lydia sardonically muses in The Testaments. “It was littered with corpses, as such roads are. But as you will have noticed, my own corpse is not among them.” Following the Margaret Atwood Society's 2022 MLA’s panel, "Wilderness (and Other) Tips: Concepts of Survival in Atwood’s Works," the 2023 edition of Margaret Atwood Studies will have the same theme.

(Haraway, 2016, Staying With The Trouble, p.149) After living through a once-in-a-generation pandemic, whilst in the midst of a slowly-evolving climate crisis, our expectations about what the future of humanity will look like have been called into serious question.

CFP: Class and Contemporary UK Film and Television. Virtual Conference 7 July 2022
Contemporary film and TV in the UK appear to offer at least three interrelated problems for the lower socio-economic classes. There is imbalance, exploitation, and precarity in the industry; perennial problems around representation; and the inculcation of neoliberal ideology antithetical to social justice and equality. This free virtual conference, held by London Metropolitan University on Thursday 7th July 2022, is an opportunity to reflect upon and react to this scenario. Presenters will be welcome to develop their papers for submission to a special double edition of the Journal of Class and Culture.
