Following the pandemic, the ways in which mobile bodies are being administered and governed are in sync with advanced techniques of demographic control, which manifests into increasing digital surveillance on mobilities. Conversely, the neo-liberal economic order reifies speed and mobility, while ‘deterritorialization’ continues to constitute an important paradigm for the ‘flows and networks’ in a globalized world.

Special Issue Call for Papers
Struggle & Hustle: Queer Nonfiction Prose
Prose Studies: History, Theory, Criticism invites submissions for a special issue devoted to exploring trans and queer mutual aid, support, and networks in all genres and periods of nonfiction prose. This issue seeks to delve into the ways in which trans and queer writers have mobilized nonfiction prose to make visible marginalized identities, disseminate underground knowledge, and fashion networks of care and family.
The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.
Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:
Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.

Margaret Atwood’s Penelopiad, Madeline Miller’s Circe, Natalie Haynes’s A Thousand Ships, Luigi Malerba’s Ithaca Forever, Chigozie Obioma’s An Orchestra of Minorities, and Colm Toibin’s House of Names are just a small sample of contemporary works of literature that engage with and re-tell Classical literature and mythology. Drawing upon ancient subject matters, these new works demonstrate that the Classical tradition remains lively and relevant, even as they pull in new histories, points of view, and contexts.

Generational Studies is growing as an area of research as multiple generations now co-exist in the workforce. Each generational cohort brings with it diverse viewpoints and varied lived experiences—sometimes quite disparate of one another. Therefore, exploring these age cohorts potentially provides an opportunity to discuss and better understand the challenges of creating cohesiveness as well as discovering the interrelatedness of cultural experiences that have the potential to connect generations.
We welcome papers on topics related to America’s generations including: Baby Boomers, Generation Jones, Generation X, Xennials, Millennials (Gen Y), and iGen (Gen Z).
Young adult (YA) speculative fiction routinely engages with many of life’s most important questions: love, death, relationships, the future of the planet, identity, belonging, and our very future as human beings. Whether styled after the classical bildungsroman or otherwise, coming of age narratives in the speculative genre encourage readers to challenge existing power structures and advocate self-expression and self-confidence. They also return agency to those often divested of power by the institutional and social structures that restrict freedoms based on age, and recenter the adolescent as a critical social figure.
PAMLA's 2021 conference is taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 11-14. There will be both in person and virtual panels at the conference.

The Idea of the Shakespearean Actor
An edited collection
Eds. Sally Barnden, Emer McHugh, and Miranda Fay Thomas
What comes to mind when we think about the Shakespearean actor, or Shakespearean acting? What do actors past, present, and future consider ‘Shakespearean acting’ to be? Is the idea of the Shakespearean actor helpful, or does it limit and restrict the notion of what Shakespearean performance can be?

Panel: Embodying Horror
Film theorist Linda Williams has identified horror as one of the “body genres” - genres of film characterized by their effect on the body. The language that we use to talk about these films is embedded in our embodied experiences of them: they are spine-tingling, bone-chilling, full of jump scares. Over the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in the number of socially conscious horror films that foreground the body and intersectional embodied identities. In these films, bodies matter; when we watch them, we are invited to interrogate our own embodied response, as well as the bodies on the screen and those behind the camera.
This traditional session welcomes submissions that address questions of intimacy and/or alienation, broadly conceived, in D.H. Lawrence's poetry, short fiction, novels, essays, or other writing. How do Lawrence's texts illuminate or complicate our understanding of our current moment, in which we are both more connected to others than ever while at the same time being forced to keep our physical distance? By JUNE 25, 2021, please submit an abstract of 200-300 words, a brief bio, and any AV requirements or scheduling requests to Tonya Krouse, Northern Kentucky University, at email@example.com.
This session is open to any proposal that explores the intersection of literature and some other art. However, in accordance with the conference theme "City of God, City of Destruction," we welcome papers that explore the cross-sections between literature and the other arts in connection to issues of the urban, cityscapes, the postmodern, noir, gothic, or religious spaces or architecture, or religious or spiritual painting or sculpture.
