Food in the United States is framed by myths and stereotypes. The myth of America as a land of plenty, embodied by the “first” Thanksgiving, is far from the reality the first settlers encountered, and creates an image of harmonious relations between Native Americans and New England colonists that belies the violence of colonization. Today, the image of the “fast food nation” masks the diversity of local cuisines and the rich history of food and foodways in the US.
The Pacific Ancient Modern Language Association (PAMLA) will host their annual conference November 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada (November 11-14). The Comics and Graphic Narratives panels seek proposals for presentations. Panel I will meet in person, and Panel II will meet virtually (sorry, no hybrid sessions will offered during this year's conference).
All papers dealing with comics and other graphic narratives will be considered. Papers utilizing media specific analysis, and papers with a strong connection to this year's theme of "City of God, City of Destruction" are highly encouraged, but papers unrelated to the theme are welcome, too. A visual component to the paper/presentation is also encouraged.
Call for Papers (Spring Issue 2021) The image of Syria as a war-torn country has always dominated global news cycles. On one hand, news outlets discuss how the international powers serve their own economic and political interests by implementing the Middle East Grand Strategy revolving around ‘ Creative Chaos’ policies. In short, waging a proxy war on Syria’s political and economic system, destroying culture and infrastructure, affecting civilians, violating human rights principles under the pretext of democracy and protection of human rights, with the aim to reshape Middle East politics. In this context, such news cycles persistently distort President Assad's counterstrategy.

People form new grammars and dialects through creative languaging: creolization, code-switching, etc. The results carry markers of intercultural relations and historical tensions. How do raciolinguistics manifest in Medieval literature, Medieval reiterations, and historiography?Languages have a deep capacity to coexist, disrupt, and change, and they survive each cultural encounter either strengthened or weakened, but certainly transmogrified. Language’s abilities to form new grammars and dialects through creative formations is apparent in both Medieval texts and in Medieval reiterations.
The global medieval and early modern world (broadly considered, c. 900-1750) underwent myriad profound changes, from devastating famines, plagues, and wars to an increased entanglement of the continents, economic transformations, and technological and scientific developments. These changes were often accompanied by calls for the reshaping of the institutions and structures – political, religious, intellectual, etc. – which undergirded societies’ approach to these challenges, encompassing such responses as resistance, resilience, and renewal.
The White Rose Medieval Graduate Conference: Self & Selves
The Centre for Medieval Studies at York and the Institute for the Medieval Studies at Leeds have sponsored a new postgraduate conference: the White Rose Medieval Graduate Conference! Our theme for the 2021 virtual conference is Self & Selves.
The discipline of Comparative Literature has already been through its “age of multiculturalism” (1995) and its “age of globalization” (2006), in the effort to displace European/Eurocentric hierarchies of value with more nuanced goals for literary study. As Comparative Literature has diversified, however, medieval studies has often been aligned with the old Eurocentrisms. What can medieval studies contribute to the next phase of the discipline, the “age of anti-racism”?Please send 250 word abstracts to Michelle Warren (email@example.com) by March 15th.
Aims and Scope: We want to publish articles that articulate the queer perspective, the experience of queerness as well as essays that explore how queerness is both understood and represented in queer communities. Topics might include but are certainly not limited to:

Extension: Call for Papers, Elizabeth Bowen Review: Volume 4, 2021
The editors of the Elizabeth Bowen Review are seeking scholarly and innovative essays for publication in the fourth volume of the journal in September 2021.
For this issue, the editors are particularly interested in essays on Bowen’s short stories. However, we are very keen to see essays on any aspect of Bowen’s writing – this could include work as a reviewer and critic, Bowen’s travel writing (e.g. A Time in Rome) and non-fiction.
Essays should be 6-7,000 words including citations, and use Harvard referencing. Please attach a 150-word abstract and short biography. Completed essays should be submitted by May 31st 2021.
Deadline Extension: Due to an extension of our funding timeline, we are making a significant extension of this CFP deadline, which will now be July 31, 2021 (moving back work on the proposed edition by a semester as well). We hope this gives people more time to develop a proposal than the original tight turnaround, especially after the semester is over and people can take a step back from what is an unusually disruptive year. We are happy to talk to people about possible proposals. Updated CFP text is below.
