We are seeking panelist proposals for the accepted Children’s Literature Association (ChLA 2022) conference panel “Sustaining Black Lives: Ecological Imaginaries in African American Books for Young Readers.” The theme of this year’s conference is “City in the Forest” and will take place in Atlanta Georgia from June 2nd-4th in Atlanta, Georgia. This panel seeks papers that correlate race and gender with Black sustainability issues like environmental inequity and global migration. We invite papers on subject matters ranging from realist literature to fantasy and science fiction, from the twentieth century to the twenty-first, from American-born to immigrant authors.
The CFP to follow is for a prospective panel at the American Literature Association’s 2022 meeting in Chicago (more information on the conference is linked here). To supplement the panel pitch, we would like four individual papers to submit to the conference organizers as an indication of interest in the panel; unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the panel will be accepted by the organizers. Nevertheless, after receiving and deciding on individual paper proposals, we will communicate our decisions by early-November with the aim of submitting the panel pitch to ALA by 12/1.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Legacies of Trauma: The Tragedy of Before and After
From Langston Hughes’ "Goodbye, Christ" to Gertrude Stein’s "If I Told Him, A Completed Portrait of Picasso," Marie Howe’s Magdalene to Sarah Blake’s Mr. West, cultural icons feature prominently across American poetry from the past century to the present. Now that social media affords endless and immediate access to living icons’ homes, bodies, and vulnerabilities (especially during the COVID-19 pandemic), poetic treatments of icons might offer timely and incisive considerations of iconography in popular culture then and now. What makes us identify with, or feel alienated from, an iconic figure? What challenges exist in depicting realistic and relatable icons in a medium necessitating a degree of craft?

Shortly after the end of WWII, the literary cultures of East-Central Europe were compelled to import the doctrine of socialist realism, which had already been active in the USSR for more than a decade. A malfunctional grafting of a would-be idealizing aesthetics and a formal pattern typical of traditional realism, the socialist realism brought along a new political novel with a limited collection of characters, narrative situations, and denouements, all projected against a overly simplified social background, painted in black and white.

We are welcoming submissions for the seminar Je est un author: (Re-)Appearances of the Authorial Subject in Literature and Theory, which we are planning for the annual meeting of the American Comparative Literature Association in Taipei, Taiwan, June 15-18, 2022.
In Mithu Sanyal’s novel Identitti, shortlisted for the German Book Prize 2021, a fictional professor of Postcolonial Studies who identifies as a PoC causes a scandal when it turns out she is actually white – a premise resembling a recent case in American academia. Who is ‘behind’ a theory matters – but how?
