Two years ago, soon after the first wave of pandemic-related closures, Laura Hartmann-Villalta and Emily C. Bloom organized a discussion on “Precarity, Caregiving, and Covid” at the MLA’s first virtual conference. It offered an opportunity for scholars from a range of academic positions to discuss the personal impact of Covid on their lives and careers.

Call for a special issue of Interdisciplinary Science Reviews on the topic of 'Conceptualizing Heterodox Palaeoscience'
Science has gone down into the mines and coal-pits, and before the safety-lamp the Gnomes and Genii of these dark regions have disappeared … From within them she has brought the bones, and pieced together the skeletons, of monsters that would have crushed the noted dragons of the fables at a blow.

Comidas, Cocinas, y Cultura: Food in Latinx Children’s and Young Adult Literature
Since the introduction of large-scale quarantine and social distancing measures in March 2020, literature conferences have increasingly turned toward examining themes of "emergency" and "crisis." In the midst of this proliferating focus on conditions of catastrophe, however, we might also ask what modes of life, affect, and community formation persist even beyond, alongside, or within crisis. Can we conceive of crisis not as a totalizing event that defines all forms of vitality that exist within its purview, but as a lived environment in which we can discover and facilitate forms of ongoingness that resist the surrounding catastrophes?
ABOUT CONFERENCE:7-8 April 2022, ONLINE (via Zoom)Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.
Call for Papers: English Department Symposium, University of Alabama (September 8-10, 2022)

We welcome submissions about:

Extended Deadline - 22nd March
‘Unfeeling’ in relation to literature may evoke thoughts about depictions of cold-hearted characters, or repressive worlds in dystopian literature. It may also evoke the supposedly “emotionless” character of disinterested responses to art and literature, and of data-driven distant reading techniques. Affect and reader-response theories tell us that our feelings matter when we read, but which feelings have historically been prioritised and at whose expense?

A Collective Address to Death
The Ohio State University Comparative Studies Department
Spring Conference | May 13th-14th, 2022
(In-person or virtual TBD)
A Collective Address to Death
The Ohio State University Comparative Studies Department seeks submissions for a spring graduate conference to be held on May 13th-14th, 2022. This conference aims to extend the conversations generated through a graduate seminar centered on Religion, Medicine, and the Body to scholars across disciplines, by providing an opportunity to collectively address themes of death, dying, and what comes after.
For an upcoming special section, the editors of PRS are seeking research that uses performance as an analytical method to understand the structure, function, use, meaning, or affects of classical religious, philosophical or religious texts. The problem of how to ‘activate’ classical texts for contemporary readers is difficult, and in recent decades, some scholars, artists and religious professionals have turned to making their own live performances responding to classical texts—in a wide variety of forms and settings—as a means of doing so. In this work, they often are forced to make complex decisions that highlight the assumptions, meanings, and consequences embedded in these texts that may not be as visible to the non-performative reader.
