PAMLA will meet next in the waning days of famed and enigmatic filmmaker Terrence Malick’s eightieth year, his remarkable filmography having recently turned fifty. It begins with Badlands, that is, which appeared on October 15, 1973, followed five years later by Days of Heaven (1978). He returns after a twenty-five year hiatus with a triptych of literary and historical adaptations, including The Thin Red Line (1998), The New World (2005), and The Tree of Life (2011).

The "British Literature and Culture: 20th and 21st Centuries" session welcomes papers that explore the rich cultural heritage of 20th and 21st Century British literature. It is important to note that this session uses the term “literature” liberally to include visual and performing arts, products of stage and screen that point to aspects of British culture generally, including the country’s politics. With regard to the conference’s theme “Translation in Action,” the session also welcomes but does not require proposals that discuss how the non-Anglophone world has reacted to/understood/re-interpreted 20th and 21st century British literature, or thoughts on teaching this literature in the American classroom.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 30, 2024

We invite you to submit papers in English for the next 43rd issue of the journal “Świat i Słowo” (World and Word), which we dedicate to the use of corpus linguistics methods for the analysis of various linguistic phenomena occurring in discourse – broadly defined as “language in use” (Brown and Yule 1983). The aim of the volume is to present research that combines corpus linguistics and the analysis of different forms and varieties of discourse. Preference is given to articles presenting the results of original research of an empirical or analytical nature conducted using corpus linguistics tools and techniques to analyse the ways in which language is used in different contexts for communicative purposes.

Indian Literatures and Cultures: New Theories and Reflections:  An International Conference organized by  The Department of English, Sidho-Kanho-Birsha University, Purulia Dates: September 11 and 12, 2024 The evolution of the studying and understanding of Indian Literatures and Cultures has always accompanied the global social, political or aesthetic theories. Starting from assuming nationalist trends in determining the horizons of Indian literature rooted to ancient myths, legends or epics and creating a cultural heritage against the superiority of the colonialist culture, various theories of determining the “Indianness” of the Indian literature and culture have been invoked.

Afrofuturism, Special Issue of Studies in American Culture

Studies in American Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 3, 2024

As an aesthetic and cultural movement, Afrofuturism began with Mark Derry’s 1993 essay, “Black to the Future.” Derry poses a difficult question: “Can a community whose past has been deliberately rubbed out, and whose energies have subsequently been consumed by the search for legible traces of its history, imagine possible futures?” The clear answer is a resounding, “YES!” Not only can Black folk imagine possible futures, but they can also write, paint, and sculpt them into being. In this special issue we invite contributors to explore what these possible futures look like. How do Afrofuturist artists reimagine a world where Black folks can be/are free? What is the cost of such freedom?

Call for proposals for Post45 special issue: ‘The potential of cliché’

Harriet Smith Hughes & Siraj Sindhu
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 7, 2024

When we call something a cliché, we’re typically calling it tired, banal, repetitive, or boring. Whether it’s an art object, a turn of speech, or a pattern of behavior, we’re identifying what it lacks: distinctiveness, originality, creativity, thrill. But in pointing to a cliché, we’re also pointing to a response. Noticing cliché creates a fissure. It elicits a reflexive movement, by which we’re forced to reckon with the repetitiousness of language; the ideological and economic structures that shape the creation of art; the social patterns that guide how we relate and self-present. Pointing to cliché, in other words, opens up the possibility for subversion.
