There has always been a need to adapt and disrupt conventions to tell one’s story and now there are almost as many forms of life writing as there are different lives. The boundaries of representation are continually being pushed. ‘Life’s Not Personal: A Creative-Critical Conference on Experimental Life Writing’ seeks to explore these narratives from both theoretical and practice-based perspectives.

Monday, February 28, 2022

Eco-Aesthetics: What is it? How to query it and think it through? This panel takes up such a line of inquiry within at least three broad domains: epistemology, method/practice and comparison. Especially for those who invested in ongoing concerns pertaining to ecology, environmentalism, wildlife preservation, sustainability, this panel seeks to amplify their voices in stock-taking the term Eco-Aesthetics. How do we conceptualize it epistemologically? How can Eco-Aesthetics be informed by and inform a multitude of trans-disciplinary discourses such as those coming out of art, anthropology, ethics, religious studies, natural sciences, architecture, spirituality and ritual studies?

Rewriting the Abortion Narrative: The Power of Popular Culture

With the Supreme Court poised to radically change or even overturn Roe v. Wade after hearing the Mississippi Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case, critical attention is being turned toward the changing ways popular culture depicts abortion. Popular culture is uniquely positioned to offer these narratives, particularly given the research that suggests that the way abortion is depicted in popular culture impacts cultural perceptions of abortion and may even, as Steph Herold has noted, “have very real ‘policy implications,’ particularly in such a politically charged climate.”

SURGE: Writing Beyond the Binary

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 13, 2022

This year’s California State University, Dominguez Hills English Graduate Association Spring Conference theme, SURGE: Writing Beyond The Binary, evokes transcendence of false dichotomy in many realms: gender, politics, race, class, sexuality, emotional well-being, literary criticism, and so much more. As writers, researchers, and scholars, we wield the power to reinforce or dispel reductive binary distinctions in our work, making it our job to SURGE ahead through these and other barriers toward portraying and creating a more inclusive, accepting, understanding world. While we work to re-energize our lives and refill the spaces we re-enter, how we choose to forge ahead will make all the difference.

Sunday, March 20, 2022

How are novels adapted for onstage presentations as musicals or operas?  Given their large numbers of characters, multiple settings, and large spans of time, the plots of novels need to be adapted to fit within the logistical and chronological realities of live theatre, as compared when novels are adapted for film or video.  Also, how is music used in these adaptations?  We seek proposals that examine how this has been done in the past and is being done now.

Humans live in places, the positions from which they perceive space as a series of landscapes. While space/time is the context that encompasses life and all of its possibilities and constraints, the perception of space is continuously constructed, and deconstructed, through geopolitical, social, and economic—in a word, cultural—drivers. Notions of nature, ecology, resources, and well-being are fundamental dimensions of such a process.

The Working Dead: Capitalism, Mortality, and Their Discontents (panel)

Marxist Literary Group - Institute on Culture and Society: Transition
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 13, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic’s disproportionate infection and fatality rates among the working class, coupled with the increasing peril from climate catastrophe, has foregrounded the existential precarity of those on the unfortunate side of the wage relation and empire. This panel considers, however, that in the absence of full human flourishing—in Marx’s word, Gattungswesen—the proletariat is, in a sense, already dead prior to the expiration of their physical bodies.

The 65th American Studies Association of Texas (ASAT) Conference will be held November 2-4, 2022, at Collin College-Frisco, Texas. Our conference theme is “Space & Autonomy.” While scholars and researchers in various disciplines have examined the relationship between space and autonomy for centuries, perhaps millennia, our need to negotiate between these two concepts has never been more pressing: we have had to reconsider our personal and public spaces in the face of a pandemic; we have had to reconceive of the geography of our urban spaces and infrastructure to confront climate change; we have had to maneuver around the constantly shifting political climate in a fractious nation; and we have had to negotiate the ever expanding realm of cyberspace.
