Women’s Life Writing in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe/ Literatură auto/biografică feminină în Europa de Est şi de Sud-Est/ Récit de vie féminin dans l’Europe de l’Est et du Sud-Est

In the form of memoirs, autobiographies, diaries or correspondence, or given a literary spin as autofiction and biofiction, the experiences of East and South-East European women during wartimes and under the oppressive regimes of the twentieth century (a period laden with contrasts, which in the West was hailed as “acentury of women”, Rowbotham 1997, but also framed as an “age of testimony”, Felman and Laub 1992) have been surfacing in the past two decades. The transmission of these narratives followed sinuous paths, taking both verbal and non-verbal forms, relying on both “filial” and “affiliative” networks (Hirsch 2012), and coming from both female victims and female perpetrators (Schwab 2010).

College students with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or other learning disabilities are frequently allowed to complete examinations and assignments under separate rules or even in a separate, distraction-reduced setting. For example, although separate room test accommodations are believed to provide students with equal access to testing and thereby improve performance, little experimental research has examined their effects on actual test/essay scores. Even less research and scholarship focus on the location of testing and the impact of testing centers on students with various documented disabilities.

deadline for submissions:

We are seeking chapters for an edited collection on the popular Canadian sitcom, Schitt’s Creek, which had a meteoric rise in the U.S. after airing on Netflix. Schitt’s Creek has been a cultural force with its catchphrases, meme-able moments, and Emmy awards. There is much to unpack to understand the show's popularity and its impact, and, in this edited book collection, we will focus on three central themes: love, place, and identity.

 

Underlying questions of the project include but are not limited to:
