We are welcoming submissions for the seminar Je est un author: (Re-)Appearances of the Authorial Subject in Literature and Theory, which we are planning for the annual meeting of the American Comparative Literature Association in Taipei, Taiwan, June 15-18, 2022.
In Mithu Sanyal’s novel Identitti, shortlisted for the German Book Prize 2021, a fictional professor of Postcolonial Studies who identifies as a PoC causes a scandal when it turns out she is actually white – a premise resembling a recent case in American academia. Who is ‘behind’ a theory matters – but how?
Literary Geographies: Space, Place, and Environments
La Mirada, CA

“All theology is rooted in geography.”
—Eugene H. Peterson, Under the Unpredictable Plant: an Exploration in Vocational Holiness
I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.

CALL FOR PAPERS
The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992 — the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States — will hold its first virtual conference, and calls for presentations situated in colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.
In the 31 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.
With apologies for cross-posting, I’d like to bring your attention to the Barbara L. Packer Fellowship, a short-term research fellowship supported by the Ralph Waldo Emerson Society and the American Antiquarian Society. Please distribute widely.

Teaching and Learning During and After COVID-19
Call for Papers:
We seek proposals for contributions to an edited volume on teaching and learning during and after COVID-19.
In cosmogonical texts like the Navajo Myth, the search for an ecology of inter-species relations is threatened by the meeting of the horizons of the sky and the earth which unhinges the stable cosmos. In narratives of climate dystopias like Bruno Arpaia's Something Out There (2016) and ecological parables like Wu Ming-Yi's The Man with Compound Eyes (2011), the threats of expulsions from habitable places and the severing of human relationships are explored within apocalyptic frameworks of planetary harm.
The 17th annual meeting of the Georgia Philological Association (GPA) will be held at the Middle Georgia State University Conference Center in Macon, GA on Thursday, May 19, 2022. We invite proposals for session topics, panel discussions, and scholarly papers in English on any subjects relating to literature or language, as well as composition, philosophy, history, translation, the general humanities, interdisciplinary studies, and pedagogy. Reading times for individual paper presentations are limited to 15 minutes. Presenters may submit longer or more complex versions (8,000 words maximum) to be considered for publication in the Journal of the Georgia Philological Association. All presenters must be members of the GPA.
In terms of a national frame and a geo-political collective, India has been a witness to multiple psychotraumatological contextualities of volatile historical and political upheavals and ruptures.
