This heuristic panel seeks to examine the lived reality and creative representation of the political and ecological crisis in Kashmir. Spotlighting the voices of Kashmiri writers will continue the long and delicate process of shedding light on the current human rights crisis happening in Kashmir, as well as its global significance. This panel, therefore, solicits academic research that brings the persecuted voices of Kashmiri writers out of isolation (respecting anonymity on an individual basis) and into humanist discussions. The purpose of this panel involves both understanding the description of the Kashmiri lived reality, as well as providing space for hearing the specific tenants of their calls for change.

Queer 19th-century Desire in the City of Brotherly and Sisterly Love

In 1860, Walt Whitman, begins his poem “I Dreamed in a Dream” with this vision of an idyllic city: “I saw a city invincible to the attacks of the whole of the rest of the earth; I dream’d that was the new City of Friends; Nothing was greater there than the quality of robust love— it led the rest” (1-5). Though presented as a utopian city formed in a dream, the City of Friends, in the 19th century, was a slogan used to refer to Philadelphia. The allusion to friends references the foundation of Philly by William Penn, a Quaker. It is this Quaker heritage that Whitman connects to his vision of Comradeship in which men of different backgrounds and cultures will lovingly embrace one another.

EXTENDED DEADLINE (June 26th, 2020): Scandal and Transgression in Twentieth-Century Transatlantic Vanguardisms

This panel explores forms of dissent adopted by twentieth-century transatlantic avant-gardes as a means of challenging traditional genres and social codes. Since the inception of European experimentalism during the first decades of the twentieth century, a series of art movements engaged in radical production that questioned the established state of affairs. From the Cubist adoption of multiple viewpoints, through the Futurist celebration of technology and speed, the Expressionist distortion of form, to the Dadaist sense of provocation and the irrational juxtaposition of images in Surrealism, avant-garde art and literature has set precedents on an international level of exchanges.

Introducing Whatever

Scholars working in queer studies, both in and out of academia, are still often marginalized; one of the aspects of this marginalization is the lack of publishing venues, which discourages potentially original and creative researchers from pursuing their interest in queer studies, and from contributing to the development of the field. This has a negative impact on both the queer studies community, and on scholarly, social, and political discourse in general.

The Mandalorian explicitly interacts with the Western genre, setting up a story of a single gunfighter standing against enemies to protect the innocent.  The theme of the 2020 Western Literature Association conference is graphic wests, which lends itself well to a panel focused on the Disney+ series.  

The conference itself will be held virtually, and the organizers seek a variety of panel types.  Individuals interested in being part of a panel focused on The Mandalorian should submit 100-200 word proposals to ebistlin@utk.edu by July 5.   Responses will be sent by July 10.

Below is the full CFP for the conference. It includes details about the panel types accepted.

As we move forward in this new normal, there is an urgent need, at both national and global levels, for critical investigations into the humanistic, scientific, and social scientific impacts of the coronavirus, both societally and in academia. It’s possible, likely even, that your current research and teaching focuses are not directly related to epidemiology. Regardless, your research and/or teaching has undoubtedly been affected by the pandemic. Now is a key moment to lean into the many robust opportunities for teaching developments and enhancements.
