The Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on the South and science fiction for a panel at the South Atlantic Modern Language Association’s 94th Annual Conference from November 11-13, 2022 in Jacksonville, FL. Papers may discuss any of the subgenres of science fiction, especially afrofuturism, post-apocalyptic, or alternate history, and may focus on any medium including video games, novels, movies, television, comics, etc. as long as the South or “Southern-ness” is a concern within the chosen text. We welcome presentations that offer to 'expand' the canon of southern literature and science fiction itself, especially papers that focus on works by BIPOC, AAPI, or LGBTQ+ writers.

SAMLA 2022: Speculative Fiction

updated: 
Monday, March 14, 2022 - 4:16pm
Mary Ann Gareis / Middle Georgia State University
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 31, 2022

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under the category is that there is some “unrealistic” element, whether it’s magical, supernatural, or a futuristic/technological development: works that fall into the category stray from conventional realism in some way.   For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from China Miéville to Margaret Atwood to Philip K. Dick. This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more. 

 

Gender, suicide, and culture: a one-day online symposium, 8th July 2022

updated: 
Monday, March 14, 2022 - 4:16pm
University of Birmingham
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 1, 2022

We have seen a rise in awareness campaigns and charities for mental health in the last decade: Calm, Let’s Get Men Talking, NHS’s recent ‘Help!’. Each speaks to the need to chip away at the stigma of being open about mental health. In particular, there has been a notable rise in campaigns approaching men’s mental health. Male suicide rates still account for three-quarters of the suicides in the UK. This one-day symposium seeks to engage with a range of interdisciplinary discussions on the link between gender, culture, and suicide. It aims to explore the ideas around gendered approaches to suicide, and how cultural frameworks and representations shape them.

Animal(ity) in Southern Literature (In-Person Panel)

updated: 
Monday, March 14, 2022 - 2:29pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

This traditional session welcomes submissions on any representation of nonhuman animals or animality in southern literature from the last century. With the development of posthumanism and human-animal studies over the last few decades, nonhuman animals in literature invite readers to no longer consider them as only symbols of human experience, but instead as literary agents of cultural change for both human and nonhuman worlds. Particularly, this panel seeks to explore how those nonhuman animals are active in southern literature. Panelists may be interested in examining nonhuman animals or animality in a single southern text, a southern author’s oeuvre, or an entire southern genre.
