Call for Papers— “The Sacred and the Secular: Crossovers between Religious Piety and Courtly Love.”
Special Session at the 57th International Congress on Medieval Studies
(Online: May 9 to 14, 2022)
This session welcomes 15-20 minute papers on any thematic crossover between courtly love or fin amor, a knightly submission to a lady of desire, and affective piety, the envisioned marriage of oneself to Christ.
You are invited to submit a paper to the "Jewish Literature and Culture" Session at the Annual Conference of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) to be held 11-14 November 2021 in Las Vegas. Jewish Literature and Culture: The Call of Memory Contemporary Jewish writers and thinkers have frequently reacted to the emergence of the Holocaust as a cultural and human rights paradigm by refracting memory toward forgotten genocides, repressed histories, and overlooked parallels with colonial and imperialist projects. The formation of comparative, multidirectional, and “concentrationary” memory studies owes much to writers like Edgar Hildenrath, Imre Kertész, Ruth Klüger, Jorge Semprún, or Patrick Modiano.
Sometimes what we love is unpopular. In the broadest sense, medieval studies face a cultural reckoning that sees us as irrelevant and unprofitable in contemporary higher education. Yet, these generalizations ignore the rich worlds that exist in the literature, art, history, etc., that we love so much. And so, how do we keep the medieval relevant to the 21st-Century student in order to revive our disciplines in ways that are both academically rigorous and imaginatively compelling? This roundtable seeks presenters who have developed innovative and engaging courses, assignments, and classroom activities to share with other scholars to implement in their own courses.
Some topics might include:
This panel for SCMS 2022 (March 31-April 3) seeks scholars drawing together work in media studies, queer/gender theory, and youth culture to explore representation “beyond the binary” of male/female and heterosexual/homosexual. We are particularly interested in trans/non-binary youth representation and authorship, but also those with queer, genderqueer, pansexual, intersex, and asexual identities.

Steve Choe (Associate Professor of Critical Studies, School of Cinema at San Francisco State University) is seeking expressions of interest to contribute essays for a Handbook on the topic of violence in film and media. The volume will be published by Palgrave Macmillian.
The Handbook will consist of 20 to 25 chapters of between 6000 and 8000 words each. All contributions must be in the English language. The Handbook aims to function as a reference work for scholars and students in film and media studies. Contributions should present original research and thinking that result in broad claims about violence in film and media.
Aimed primarily at undergraduate students, An Introduction to Poetic Forms (Routledge) offers specimen discussions of poems through the lens of form. While each of its essays does provide a standard definition of the form in question, their main objective is to provide readings of specific examples to illustrate how individual poets have deviated from or subverted those expectations usually associated with the form under discussion. While providing the most vital information on the most widely taught forms of poetry, then, this collection will very quickly demonstrate that counting syllables and naming rhyme schemes is not the be-all and end-all of our engagement with poetic forms.

Recent work on Shakespeare has shown the myriad ways in which the plays can be used productively to think through contemporary cultural and political issues. Books like Shakespeare and Latinidad (Trevor Boffone and Carla Della Gatta, eds.), Shakespeare and the Shades of Racism (Ruben Espinosa), Shakespeare and the 99% (Sharon O’Dair and Timothy Francisco, eds.), and Teaching Social Justice Through Shakespeare (Hilary Eklund and Wendy Beth Hyman, eds.) have demonstrated the relevance of Shakespeare to modern discourses of race, ethnicity, sexuality, colonialism, bilingualism, economic justice, social justice, education, and politics.
