ABOUT CONFERENCE: 

​Researchers have long confirmed the importance of studying food-related issues in the past and in the present-day world. During our interdisciplinary conference, we are going to concentrate on the relationships between food and memory. In what sense – and in what circumstances – can food be regarded as an identity-building factor? What role does it play in shaping our individual and collective memories? How can food studies deepen our knowledge on the social and cultural aspects of our lives? Why are food memories so often related to important experiences of individuals and societies?

Translation is an essential and indispensable skill for foreign language students. Through translation, they have the opportunity not only to reflect upon and deeply understand cultural and linguistic aspects of the target language, but they are also capable of compare it with the source culture and language. It is a linguistic exercise, a creative process, as well as an opportunity for cultural immersion and a creative process. However, teaching a translation class or simply integrating translation activities into the language classroom comes with myriad pedagogical challenges for the instructor.

: Indigenous Cinemas from South Asia: Agency, Mediation, Representation

Studies in World Cinema
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 1, 2024

Since the 1990s, the impact of transnational flows in technology, finance and knowledge have significantly altered the trajectories of filmmaking from South-Asian countries. Among the new developments is indigenous cinema, in a multitude of linguistic varieties and cultural diversities. South Asia is home to several indigenous communities, with India alone having 104 million Adivasi communities across the nation, as per the 2011 census data (Adivasi being the collective term for indigenous groups in India). These communities share certain features, their heterogeneity being the most striking. Many of these communities belong to the margins, with minimal resources and social capital to ensure their wellbeing.

Theater plays, performance scripts, architectural drawings, musical scores, pantomimes, screenplays, dance notations, opera and ballet librettos, video game scripts—these and other similar types of artifacts and writings seem to belong to a common category, often referred to as ‘notations.’ A notation can be tentatively described as an artwork that responds to the situation of producing another artwork.

BEAR BOOK III: The Evolution of an International Queer Identity, Community, and Culture EXTENDED DEADLINE

LES K. WRIGHT

Monday, June 30, 2025

 What began as a predominantly American gay white cisgender male identity and community has grown and transformed substantially since the publication of The Bear Book (1997) and Bear Book II in 2000. Since then bear culture has spread rapidly across the globe and been embraced embodied and transformed into new sex and gender identities beyond the hetero/homo binary and further inflected by non-Anglophonic cultures. Self-identifying bears are “queering” masculinities. These profound shifts in bear identity, community, and culture remain underdocumented and understudied.

National Narratives of the Far Right: The New American Mythopoeia

updated: 
Monday, May 13, 2024 - 2:37pm
Laura Jeffries, PhD
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 30, 2024

This year’s South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA) conference theme, Seen and Unseen, considers how the perceptual lens influences our vision of the world around us. All national narratives are iterative projects that never quite arrive at the truth, but the (re)mainstreaming of far-right ideologies across American society has engendered a collection of false histories and mythopoetic frameworks shaped in their image, often aggressively vying for space in the public imagination. This session invites papers and multimedia presentations examining the development, dissemination, or impact of alternate visions/versions of any component of the American story and the principles that have animated it.
