"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.

Bending the Clock: Applying Crip Time to Practice in Teaching and Studying Children’s and Young Adult Literature

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

Verge: Studies in Global Asias Issue 11.2

Special Issue: The Asian Century: Idea, Method, and Media

Edited by Christopher T. Fan, Paul Nadal, Ragini Tharoor Srinivasan, and Tina Chen

Deadlines | Essays: May 1, 2024

What is the Asian Century? Are we living in it? Do its recent invocations—by writers and readers, politicians and pundits, journalists and academics—mark a return to earlier eras of relative Asian centrality on the world stage or announce a future we have yet to inhabit? Is it a paranoid, U.S.-centered discourse of Western decline or a triumphant announcement of Asian economic-semiotic arrival? Is the Asian Century an aspiration or a threat—and to whom?

Fall 2024 Issue of Critical Humanities examines narrative innovations and new scholarly approaches in representations of contemporary and/or day-to-day struggles against climate change and extraction. How do narratives from the Global South ― in literature, print, film and media ― understand the impacts of climate change and industrial extraction on minority communities? In what ways do representations of climate change highlight its intersections with colonial, neo-colonial and postcolonial forms of extraction? What are the new and innovative methods for us to theorize responses, struggles, and resistance efforts against the hostile conditions of extraction in the context of climate change?

Sapienza Summer School - The Cultural Heritage and Memory of Totalitarianism

updated: 
Wednesday, January 17, 2024 - 9:52am
Sapienza Università di Roma
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 7, 2024

The School explores the legacy of Fascism in Italy blending unique in situ visits to art, architecture and historical monuments led by international experts and classes on literature, film and culture led by Sapienza faculty. The goal is to broaden the scholarly assessment of the period and to suggest innovative curricula for students in the humanities, who are also interested in working in museums and cultural institutes in Italy and abroad. The heritage of Fascism in Rome and Italy will be approached in the context of Nazism and Stalinism, and framed within the broader scenario of European colonialism.
