Fireside Tales of Terror: The Gothic and Winter

“Horrors belong as naturally to the fireside, as fireside belongs to Christmas” declares the narrator of the piece “Fireside Horrors for Christmas” in the December 1847 issue of Dublin University Magazine. This image of “popular fireside stories or winter’s tales” exchanged in communal settings had, as the late Catherine Belsey explained, a “long vernacular tradition” (2010). Furthermore, it was, she argues, a practice that often-challenged orthodox institutional discourse about, for example, the “true meaning” of Christmas or the origins of ghosts and tapped into secular and “pagan” rituals and practices.

Radical Sondheim (Online Symposium)

Kingston University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 29, 2023

In the wake of his death in 2021, tributes emphasised how Sondheim’s creations were not only a postmodern challenge to the hummable tunes of traditional musical theatre and conventional simplicities of staging and plot, but also to expected ideas of the musical theatre protagonist. Writing in The Atlantic, Sophie Gilbert expressed the audience’s love for Sondheim as a response to how his work ‘takes the typically unseen… and forces them into the spotlight’.

The 52nd annual College English Association welcomes proposals for presentations focused specifically on pedagogy that move to the general conference theme: Confluence

The conference will be held in San Antonio, a city that itself is a kind of confluence: it has been the home of multiple cultures; it has seen the rise and fall of famous missions and military presidios; and it honors in its daily life today its Hispanic heritage and cowboy culture alike.

Resilient Bodies: Beyond the Margins of Life Writing

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 10:04pm
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Recent discussions in autobiography studies have increasingly shifted their focus to non-conventional forms of self-expression. In broader terms, life writing, which aims to reveal the self in all of its complexity, has inevitably evolved from a highly conventional genre to an open and ever-expanding practice that connects writing with other modes of representation. Discussions on autobiography have progressively become inclusive of non-literary forms of expression, such as performance, body and endurance art.

Natural-Cultural Relationships or Representations of Animals in Global Anglophone/Postcolonial Novels

Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 10:02pm
2023 NeMLA Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Postcolonial ecocriticism or environmental theory has been a flourishing field of inquiry over the past two decades. Literary critics have been using this theory to examine the complex relationship between literature, culture, and the environment in diverse global Anglophone or postcolonial novels. With the intensification of globalization in the 1990s, there has been an explosion of local environmental movements in the global south protesting neoliberal capitalist agendas, despite their respective governments’ promises of development, modernity, and progress in order to “catch up” with the West. These local struggles have arisen out of specific socio-historical circumstances and differ vastly from each other.

Human-Plant Entanglement: Thinking with Plants in the Anthropocene

Sunday, October 30, 2022

The human and plant relationship stretches back to the earliest of times, arguably 20,000 years ago when the prehistoric hunter-gatherers had not quite learned to domesticate the wild vegetal species that grew around them. Learning to domesticate the plants for their own use was a decisive moment that changed humans into an agricultural unit and left the promise of a quantum leap in human history. Indeed, for the last twenty millennia, humans and plants have co-evolved in such diverse but intimate ways that the history of one would be unthinkable without the history of the other.

Revolutionary Violence (Roundtable)

NIAGARA FALLS, NEW YORK
March 23-26, 2023
Location: Niagara Falls Convention Center
Hotel: Sheraton Niagara Falls

The study of violence works on constituting different angles through which violent actions take place, while also focusing on the difference in the morality of actions that are thus committed. Since everybody accepts facts in an interpretational setup, the realities of ground zero are ignored. The act of attaining knowledge, as Michel Foucault says, requires digging. Rather than interpretation there needs to be an understanding of the difference between the representative point of view and representation.

Dissenting Beliefs Edited Collection: Heresy and Heterodoxy in Fantasy

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2022 - 9:52pm
Centre for Fantasy and the Fantastic
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 3, 2022

Religious fantasy, for a great many readers, is synonymous with Christian fantasy; more specifically, it is understood as literature overtly reproducing biblical narratives within a fantasy world, such as C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. Concurrently, fantasy texts engaging with theology through non-allegorical means that challenge mainstream Christian doctrine are all too often dismissed as disingenuous, offensive or deliberately antagonistic. While this is sometimes the case, such a narrow view of religious fantasy excludes all but the least innovative texts from the genre and leaves little room for authors of other faiths.

This panel seeks to examine the discourse of the refugee crisis originating from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022 in connection with other recent refugee crises. While international news coverage and the humanitarian response has been extraordinary during the events of the war, this same response throws into stark relief Western nations’ lack of action and support for the refugees of Syria, Central America and Palestine.

 “Resiliency in the Face of Trauma”

The concept of trauma is largely understood as the impact of disruptive experiences on one’s sense of self, one’s environment, one’s external reality. In this panel, we would like to further investigate the aftermath of trauma and the resiliency of both physical and human nature in the face of destructive events as represented in contemporary Italian literature and cinema.
