University of Fribourg (Switzerland), 5–6 May 2023

This two-day conference will explore the notions of trust and uncertainty in linguistics and literary studies. Trust and certainty are crucial aspects of knowledge and its production, covering/in relation with a range of phenomena among which authority, authenticity, faith, evidence, manipulation, and falseness. Following the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, many of these aspects – information and misinformation, the role of the expert, conspiracy theories – have gained acute prominence. However, this conference will draw much wider circles, taking into account historical developments and diverse aesthetic approaches to these topics.

SPECIAL ISSUE INFORMATION

It’s a statistic we hear often: the United States incarcerates more people per capita than any other nation. Yet, many U.S. Americans can go about their daily lives without thinking about their physical proximity to prisons or the people locked within. Prisons have become increasingly removed to rural, remote areas, set back from main highways, not visible from shopping centers, restaurants, and housing developments. Likewise, the U.S. political landscape works hard to obfuscate the realities of life locked up, reducing mass incarceration to shocking statistics. However, prisons remain hidden in plain sight, coming to life in American literature and film.

For people of Latin America and the Caribbean, centuries of modernity/coloniality have resulted in continuous and compounding traumas that demand resilience. Yet, when we talk of resilience, are we ever naturalizing trauma and legitimizing the status quo, accepting that the way to be of oppressed peoples must always be in response to abusive conditions? Is it not possible that in focusing on resilience, we enable the continuation of unequal power structures by putting pressure on the oppressed to learn to adapt to what hurts us, rather than putting pressure on the world to destroy oppressive systems including racism, patriarchy, and capitalism? Instead of focusing on resilience, we should be imagining and enacting ways of being otherwise.

Call for Papers: The Language of Trees, Forests, and Nature

Deciduloma, Volume 1

Deadline: September 15th 

Sometimes rare moments and experiences require new words, so we created the word deciduloma to mean "a visceral reawakening, as if rising from an emotional coma in which you become reintroduced to a beautiful part of yourself long since forgotten or thought to have been permanently lost." 

There are many ways of experiencing this type of "visceral reawakening." One of those ways is through nature. For our inaugural issue, we welcome essays that engage with different aspects of nature through literature, film and television, and other forms of visual medium. 

Away from Home: Black British Women’s Writing, 1970 and Beyond

The arrival of the Empire Windrush at Tilbury on 22 June 1948 marked the beginning of an important period in British writing but also an era that largely silenced women writers—particularly women writers of colour. In the years following the arrival of the Windrush, the output of women writers of colour in the UK, or Black British women writers, increased. Yet, recognition of this group was not as forthcoming as acclaim and acknowledgement rested largely on male writers. While the work of all immigrant writers in the UK—particularly those texts that recount the lived experiences surrounding immigration—is critical to literature studies, women writers have historically been isolated to the margins of the canon.

'The Social Hieroglyphic': Modernist Reading Practices and their Afterlives

Anticipating notions of modern cryptography, Marx famously observed in Capital Vol. I, that value “does not have its description branded on its forehead; it rather transforms every product of labour into a social hieroglyphic.” Therefore, to understand the “product of [this] labour”--the commodity form–we must learn how to read (as in, decode) the “social hieroglyphic.” Reading, for Marx, thus becomes a site of significant contention as it leads to the making and unmaking of our social world. This panel seeks to examine ways in which the modernist era encountered processes of “social hieroglyph[y]” in the literary marketplace and turned the act of reading into a distinct practice with serious stakes.

deadline for submissions:

This roundtable invites papers that explore the folds in time in which cities exist, either mapped, virtually drawn, or told to establish the cultural movements running beneath cities’ lives.  What narratives engage these moments of close past or emerging shifts that impact the resilience of urban life?  What small gestures, ephemera, and/or detritus best represent the city’s recent past or future?  What elemental, unspoken aspects of urban space perhaps seem most threatened in the present moment?  Versus the city obliterated by time, how does literary or visual storytelling engage, re-imagine, or frame the lived and enduring city?  How do these more present reflections become windows on deeper time, human movement, and urban space?

Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha's Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice (2018) details, through a series of essays, the disabled queer community's knack for finding "ways to keep each other alive when the state is fucked, and community is fucked and inadequate too" (63). From care webs to mutual aid to political organizing, Piepzna-Samarasinha both champions and advocates for a care-taking by and for the communities it aims to serve, one that fosters self-determination, legibility, and resiliency. This panel invites proposals that center in their research and analysis the doing of queer and queer crip care work.

The Senses and Memory

updated: 
Saturday, June 11, 2022 - 1:57pm
Chanelle Dupuis / NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

From the "Proust Effect" to music's "reminiscence bump", the senses can evoke strong memories and convey complex details of an event. Each sense is encoded in the brain in its own particular way and registers unique characteristics of a moment. Likewise, the senses in tandem can build relations that resonate the multisensory qualities of an event. We are looking for papers that explore the link between the senses and memory in various forms of media and texts. The proposals should interact with Sensory Studies (Smell, Sound, Taste, Touch, and Sight) in some way or be works that consider the intersection of the senses (synesthesia, etc).
