Metaphors of Compilation

English Language Notes
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2024

This special issue of English Language Notes invites interdisciplinary perspectives on the poetic and metaphorical possibilities of compilation, a word both ubiquitous and lacking a single, agreed-upon meaning. From Latin compilatio (“a raking together, pillaging, plundering; hence, concr., sportively of a collection of documents, a compilation”), “compilation” can describe poetic composition, physical construction, and the artful orchestration of those domains by means of page-layout, indexing, and comparable readerly aids. Both action and result, compilation figures an object in terms at once material and literary.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 27, 2024

This panel seeks 250-300 word abstracts exploring political and aesthetic questions across postbellum 19th and 20th century African American and Caribbean literature across a range of subjects including nonhuman animality, ecocriticism or ecopoetics, political ecology, and/or what Chelsea Frazier calls "black feminist ecological thought." Papers placing themselves in conversation with J.T. Roane's theorization of "black ecologies" in and/or beyond literature as well as those taking up Kimberly Ruffin's work on Black ecoliterary traditions are especially encouraged, but the call is open to the broadest sense of the concepts and terms listed above.

What is left of myths in contemporary arts and literature?

International Conference in Toulouse (France) - December 6-7, 2024

As founding narratives or idealized representations of historical figures, myths have, from time immemorial, tied humans together, creating communities that grow into organized societies. They have therefore become the safeguards of a vision of History that the arts and literature have ceaselessly spun into stories, in order to better transgress, deconstruct or simply revisit an ever-changing mythos. Contemporary stories reshape the contours of an all-too-often glorified past and they question our cultural heritage at the same time as rekindling it.

Friday, February 23, 2024

Join us for the upcoming 2024 Red River Valley Graduate Student Conference, May 16-17, 2024 on the beautiful NDSU Campus in Fargo, ND. The conference will explore writing, rhetoric, literary theory, and culture in digital spaces, building from questions posed by our keynote speaker, Dr. Ratan Kumar Roy of Brac University, Bangladesh:

 

“Our exposure to the digital world has redefined the ways of seeing, thinking, and doing in everyday life. Digital visibility has appeared as a new form of visual cultures that plays a key role in defining the culture of contemporary times. How does one examine, explore, make sense, and write about culture in this new world order?”
