Disability in the Global Middle Ages

updated: 
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 5:02pm
Society for the Study of Disability in the Middle Ages
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2022

Since its emergence, medieval disability studies has asked questions about the meanings of disability in the Middle Ages, the lived experiences of people with disabilities, and how scholars can apply the frameworks of disability studies to medieval texts. Although these questions have led to insightful and field-changing scholarship, much of this work centers the Western tradition. In order to explore a broader and more accurate view of disability in the global Middle Ages, we ask these same questions but with a focus on non-Western texts. This panel seeks presentations on any aspect of disability in the global Middle Ages, and we welcome submissions from across disciplines, including literature, art, history, religion, and philosophy.

Charles Olson Adrift: The Reach of Black Mountain Poetry

updated: 
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 4:21pm
The Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 9, 2022

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, to be held February 23-25, 2023. We are interested in abstracts that examine the influence of Charles Olson and/or other Black Mountain Poets on poetic practices and their developments up to the present. A variety of poets took up the innovative practices of figures like Charles Olson, Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, John Wieners, and others associated with Black Mountain. How have the practices of this fundamentally important school of poetics been extended, transformed, and/or resisted by other poets?

The Hidden Queer: Queer Approaches to Disney's Fairy Tale Films

updated: 
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 10:58am
Brittany Eldridge
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

This edited collection would focus on the application of queer theory and queer approaches to Disney films that are infamous for queerbaiting, queer coding, and queer pandering, as well as the parodies of Disney films that stem from this. 

Previous works such as Kay Turner and Pauline Greenhill’s The Transgressive Tales (2012) looks into the queer retellings of the Brothers Grimms' edited collection of tales. This collection seeks to go beyond the Brothers Grimm and showcase queer approaches to the Disney fairy tale. With the 'Don't Say Gay' Bill and the apathetic response, it is time to shed light on this academic area and the link between Disney fairy tale films and the queer community.

17th International Connotations Symposium: “And this gives life to thee” - Textual Reasons for Canonicity

updated: 
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 1:09am
Connotations: Society for Critical Debate
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

Recent debates on canonicity have focused on how canons are a product of social and historical conditions as well as of reception. Texts become canonical when they are felt to embody the spirit of an age or to voice concerns considered universal at a particular moment. But what about the texts themselves? Can any text become canonical in any way? Or are there any specific textual reasons for such an elevated status? This latter question is what our symposium wishes to address.

[Updated] “Transdisciplinarity @ HBCUs: (Re)Writing Black Futures Beyond the Margin”

updated: 
Tuesday, July 12, 2022 - 8:51pm
Special Issue of the Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics (JMOR)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 15, 2022

In “Where Would We Be? Legacies, Roll Calls, and the Teaching of Writing in HBCUs (2021),” Beverly Moss asserts that “Black rhetorical excellence has thrived at HBCUs. Pedagogical and scholarly creativity in the teaching of writing has excelled” (146). However, it is her critical question that anchors this proposal: “where would we, in composition studies, be without writing and rhetoric faculty who have taught or currently teach at HBCUs and/or scholars in the field who are alumni of HBCUs?” (145). The creation of the HBCU Symposium on Rhetoric and Composition in 2016 helped to bring some of these contributions from the margins into the center of conversations about the teaching of writing that happens on HBCU campuses across the country.

Literature and Place-based Pedagogy (Roundtable), NeMLA

Dr. Jamie Carr, Niagara University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Universities increasingly recognize the value of connecting students to local communities to promote concepts of care: volunteerism, problem-solving, stewardship. What role does literature play in place-based community engagement? How does reading or writing ‘literatures of place’ (regional or environmental literature, travel or nature writing, ecopoetry) connect students to a place and contribute to place-based solutions?

Research Collaboration with Our Undergraduates: A Mutual Reward

Tuesday, July 12, 2022 - 2:53pm
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Collaborative research between faculty and their undergraduates is not a new practice, and the pedagogy of collaborative projects has attracted, perhaps more recently, considerable scholarly attention. This roundtable examines the richness in the covenant instructors and their undergraduate research assistants enter when they embark on a scholarly project independent of a course’s requirements and outside the semester’s classroom. Given our undergraduates’ remarkable fortitude, resilient energy, digital literacy, and technological savvy, our work as scholars in our specific disciplines reaps enormous benefit when we harness our students’ creative abilities.
