Food has always had meaning. In terms of literary analysis, food has a symbolic and culturally significant meaning. Historically speaking however, studies about food have traditionally been connected to disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, and history but recent shifts in literary and cultural thought, food studies have widened to include disciplines such as English, World Languages, Art, Film studies, etc.

Wednesday, January 24, 2024

"The Material Lives of Logistics" - As part of a panel proposal for the upcoming American Literature Association (ALA) Conference (Chicago, IL - May 23-26, 2024), we invite paper abstracts that explore logistics and infrastructures in literary texts. The global supply chain accounts for the movement of 90% of everything and over 11% of global greenhouse gas emissions (George 2013, MIT Climate Portal). The organizational imperatives enabling the ecocidal acceleration of commodity circulation, Alberto Toscano reminds us, encompass “a deeply incoherent, contradictory, conflicted and competitive domain” (2014). Literary forms are particularly apt for dealing with contradiction and incoherence.

Children's Literature Association Accessibility Committee
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2024

In line with ChLA’s fiftieth anniversary and a conference themed “Looking Back, Looking Forward: 50 Years of ChLA," this hybrid session invites brief (5-minute) talks and/or posters about applying crip time to the teaching or studying of children’s literature. Disability scholars explore what has been termed crip time: the kind of time experienced by people whose disabilities mean that they engage with the world at a different pace than normative time. As Alison Kafer claims: “Rather than bend disabled bodies and minds to meet the clock, crip time bends the clock to meet disabled bodies and minds” (Feminist, Queer, Crip 27). 

Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Literary Theories/Analysis
