deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

Description:

In 2015, the case of Rachel Doležal sparked a heated debate about transraciality and helped to establish an academic examination of the subject.  The scholarly consideration of transraciality is in its formative stages and this edited collection is an effort to expand and develop the existing discussion.  The first of its kind, this volume will include interdisciplinary contributions from scholars who bring a wide range of perspectives and approaches to the subject.  We are interested in chapters that help us, as an academic community, better understand transraciality as a concept or practice. 

RSA 2023 (San Juan, March 9–11): New Approaches to Early Modern Metaphor

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

“A metaphor,” wrote philosopher Monroe Beardsley in his Aesthetics (1958), “is a miniature poem, and the explication of a metaphor is a model for all explication.” Beardsley recognized the interpretive value of the trope, and metaphor offers a rich site to deepen cultural, artistic, and literary understanding of the early modern period. This panel seeks papers across disciplines that offer new theoretical frameworks for engaging with early modern metaphor. It also aims to foster transdisciplinary dialogue among panelists. Possible topics include visual metaphor, scientific and mathematical metaphor, metaphor in translation, poetic and literary metaphor, legal metaphor, Renaissance theories of metaphor, and problems of interpretation.

Fantasy, Prophecy, and Prediction as Causality Panel

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:46pm
Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Panel Description:

Innovations in tech and science often begin with fantasies that embody a possibility (e.g. Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon, Dick Tracy's TV watch, flip phone communicators in Star Trek, and Neuromancer’s cyberspace as VR). Theory is followed by experimentation and prototyping, and ultimately a convergence with reality (although not without tragic casualties along the way, as in the history of flight and space exploration). In this sense, fantasy can be understood as both precursor and prophet of things-to-come.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Papers are sought from any period, any cultural form/genre, and from any critical perspective that investigate the way that science and culture have influenced, informed, and challenged one another, either within society more broadly or even within higher education. Projects from the medical humanities, environmental humanities, and/or digital humanities are relevant to this panel, as are other interdisciplinary fields at the intersections of science and the humanities. We are looking for papers that consider science and culture as lived human experiences, rather than speculative science fiction per se.

Puppet => Machine: The Next Generation Panel

Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:44pm
Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Panel Description:

Puppets tread the threshold between human and object. On the one hand, they can appear as ideal revisions of the human, on the other as profoundly inhuman entities, characterized by their impertinent refusal to obey human laws, whether of language, feeling, or even mortality. Puppets exist at the nexus of the conference theme: quotidian objects invested with a fantasy of animation, of interiority, of drives, and independent goal states.

Jean Rhys and Modernist Connections

CFP Special Issue: Jean Rhys and Modernist ConnectionsIn the 21st century, we no longer think of modernism as one cultural experience. If having a culture dramatically changed overnight and having to come up with new ways to live, in every sphere of life, constitutes modernity, then those trafficked from Africa to the Caribbean faced their own experience of it. Jean Rhys was born and formed in the Caribbean, and in reinventing herself in Europe as a writer, crafted her own modern voice out of many strands of experience and understanding, particularly as a white writer growing up in a Black post-slavery society.

CLASSIC HORROR - abstracts due April 25, 2022

2022 is the 90th anniversary of the numerous amazing classic horror films that were released in 1932, among them Freaks, Island of Lost Souls, The Most Dangerous Game, The Old Dark House, The Mummy, and White Zombie. To mark this anniversary, we are soliciting abstracts for a special 'journal' issue of the website Horror Homeroom on classic horror.  This special issue, which will come out in 2022, will certainly honor those films that have their anniversary this year, but we also want to broaden what classic horror looks like and are interested in essays that explore other national cinemas and lesser-known films.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 3, 2022

The Teaching Writing in College section welcomes all submissions but is particularly interested in those that consider writing instruction in relation to the conference theme of “Change.” By June 4, 2022 please submit and abstract of 300-500 words, a brief bio, and any A/V or scheduling requests to Lisa Diehl, Chairperson, at lisa.diehl@ung.edu. Teaching writing has always existed in the intersection of culture, identity, and expression. Writing instructors encourage their students to attend to style, voice, and other aesthetic elements of their text. Writing instructors also encourage their students to think of their work as socially situated and able to effect change in the “real world” outside of the classroom.

(MMLA 2022, Minneapolis) Trauma in the Age of Trauma

updated: 
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 3:41pm
MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 15, 2022

Recent essays and articles in publications like The Atlantic and Vox have voiced growing concerns about the increasing elasticity of “trauma.” Even so, those same texts note the value of recognizing others’ trauma and of responding ethically to their stories. This worth is particularly evident in the wake of the many Covid-related traumatic events and the most recent racial reckonings (that may or may not have occurred) in the US and around the world.
