PAMLA 2023 Special Session

October 26-29, 2023

This panel is and isn’t about poetry. At its core, it is a panel about our reading habits surrounding poetry, the ways in which the definition of poetry has shifted in its capaciousness, about how we recognize a poem, what has happened to poetry’s public in the wake of Amanda Gorman’s powerful reading of "The Hill We Climb" in Joseph Biden’s presidential inauguration, and what poetry might become in a heavily digitized, perhaps even metaversal future. The specter that haunts this panel is Stanley Fish’s “How to Recognize a Poem When You See One,” but his essay is really just one starting point in how critics have been fervently trying to recognize our reading habits on poetry.

In the past decade, an increasing number of colleges and universities have added elements of intercultural and global awareness to their discipline, degree, and course outcomes. Whether titled “intercultural awareness” or “global citizenship,” “intercultural competence” or “global awareness,” these new focal points center on a more international, cross-cultural understanding of the world and its interactions. The American Association of Colleges and Universities, for example, has generated a “Global and Social Responsibility Initiative” that articulates three main outcomes for students in the 21st century:

1.) Become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences.

English as a foreign language (EFL) education provides valuable opportunities to introduce global and intercultural perspectives on the challenges of the Anthropocene. One way to engage EFL learners critically with the Anthropocene and make its complexity more accessible, immediate, and meaningful to them is through literary studies. Literature has the power to challenge established ideas, inspire change, and offer fresh perspectives on real-world problems associated with the Anthropocene.

Pratiques de l’hésitation : pour une observation des tremblements 

 

Si, p. ex., quelqu’un disait « je ne sais pas s’il y a là une main », on pourrait dire : « Regarde de plus près ». – Cette possibilité de se convaincre de quelque chose fait partie du jeu de langage. (Wittgenstein 1969, 16) 

 

Depuis, j’ai tout oublié de l’inconnu, mais le timbre de sa voix, au creux de cette houle, résonne encore en moi. Émoi définitivement présent :

 – Ma main en tremble encore, disait-il, regardez!  (Djebar 1985, 162)

2023 marks one-hundred years since Italo Calvino’s birth in 1923. Even before his death in 1985, he was considered a classic of 20th century literature; his career spans various crucial historical moments, from the Resistance to the Years of Lead, and encompasses various genres and modes of writing, from Neorealism to postmodernism.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 25, 2023

(Deadline Extended)

In 2022, about 35.04 million printed books were sold that classified as Young Adult Literature (Curcic 2023). In fact, it’s the fastest growing category since 2018, with almost a 50% increase in sales to date (Curcic 2023). And, if trends hold, the numbers will continue to rise, making the YA category a multibillion dollar opportunity for publishers. It’s also no surprise that media adaptations of popular Young Adult novels have become big business, raking in millions of dollars, skyrocketing actors to celebrity status, and providing another mediated experience for fans to embrace.

Call for Complete or Nearly Complete Chapters, Handbook on Games and Sex/Sexuality

Steffi Shook, Manhattanville College
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 17, 2023

We have a contract with Bloomsbury Publishing for a handbook on the intersection of video games and sexual content and sexuality. Traditionally, handbooks are envisioned as comprehensive surveys of the discipline aimed at the library market. Volumes typically consist of about 25-35 contributions written by experts in their respective areas of the field. Much work has been done by our contributors already and we are working with them on final edits and revisions. However, to be blunt, attrition due to many factors has taken a toll on us and we are now a few chapters short of our target. Our publisher has given us permission to do a second call for contributors.

Science and Technology in Popular Culture

Northeast Popular Culture Association (NEPCA)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2023

The Science and Technology area of NEPCA encourages proposals for presentations that explore the relation of science and technology (broadly defined) to popular culture and to American culture. We are particularly interested in putting science, technology, culture, and the humanities in conversation with one another. How are science and technology represented in popular culture? How do we use popular culture to understand science and technology? And how do we use science and technology to understand narratives, art, and culture? What do we gain, what do we risk by approaching science and technology from the lens of the humanities, the humanities from the lens of science, by putting these disciplines in conversation with each other?
