Women Writing Syria: Resilience, Solidarity, Movement

Call for Submissions

How do Syrian women writers, poets and artists imagine Syria, both before and after the revolution and war? Can we imagine Syria without war? Can Syria – as a site that is at once shared, divided and contested – inspire us to bring it into being through creative writing and arts? Could we make this imagined Syria a concrete reality? How can Syrian women’s narratives and voices be heard?

We invite contributions from Syrian women writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, playwrights and cross-genre writers writing in English, Arabic and Turkish for the forthcoming anthology Women Writing Syria. Visuals by artists are also welcome.

Thinking the Global South: Method, Theory, Strategy

15 October 2022

Keynote Speaker: Magalí Armillas-Tiseyra, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature, the

Pennsylvania State University and co-director of the digital platform Global South Studies.

 

If the term ‘Global South’, as Magalí Armillas-Tiseyra has observed, ‘serves as a placeholder or temporary

designation for something that it announces but does not properly describe’, its attention to the ‘global’ offers

us a ‘name for the desire to think expansively and therefore comparatively beyond established national,

In 2019, renowned American literary critic and Black feminist scholar Hortense Spillers donated her papers to the Pembroke Center’s Feminist Theory Archive in the name of the Black Feminist Theory Project, and in April 2022, the Pembroke Center opened the exhibit “Hortense Spillers: A Life Recorded.” In celebration of both the collection and exhibit, we are soliciting papers for a Fall 2022 symposium on Spillers’s contributions to intellectual and pedagogical practices in the fields of Black feminist criticism, literary studies, and cultural studies, among others.

In Undrowned: Black Feminist Lessons from Marine Mammals, Alexis Pauline Gumbs meditatively interrogates the language of the natural sciences and its attendant racialized, gender-essentialized assumptions, and provides a model for identifying similar logics in Medieval Studies. Recent attention on the integration of Women of Color Feminisms in Medieval Studies has illuminated how these logics make the "circumstances" of such integration "unbreathable" (Gumbs 3). In this roundtable, we will engage with the possibility of Women of Color Feminisms' ability to breathe in such circumstances.

Latin American borderlands: new perspectives on history and culture

Missouri State
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Latin American frontiers have been approached from multiple perspectives but the canonical all-encompassing studies, Hennessy’s The Frontier in Latin American History and David Weber’s and Jane Rausch’s edited collection on the same topic, were published decades ago. They could and should be reviewed in light of new developments, both in academia and in the real world (or say politics, culture and the economy). This collective effort will offer a fresh take on Latin American frontiers, understood mainly but not only historically and in the sense of undetermined borderlands, be it between nation-states or within the political boundaries of a single nation-state.

The Networks of Romance I: Transnational and Global - (In-Person Format)

Increased social mobility and technological advances in modern society, as well as the advent of postcolonial studies, have spurred scholars to investigate the ‘interconnectedness’ of the global Middle Ages, and to challenge Western-centrism. This session is open to papers that apply these critical approaches to romance texts. We welcome scholars who consider the textual representations of cross-culturalism, and of networks that transcend regional and national boundaries. Also invited are papers that examine depictions of networks from outside the medieval West. We particularly encourage participants who use decolonising methodologies.

What is resilience for people with disabilities? What is recovery?

Narratives of illness, trauma and disability are often framed to emphasize recovery. Reflecting on resiliency, constructed ideas of normalcy, and “crip time,” Ellen Samuels writes: “Disability and illness have the power to extract us from linear, progressive time with its normative life stages and cast us into a wormhole of backward and forward acceleration, jerky stops and starts, tedious intervals and abrupt endings” (2017).

In working with disabled performers, disability scholar and artist Petra Kuppers notes the connection between the material oppression experienced by people with disabilities and the performance space. She writes:

58th International Congress on Medieval Studies
May 11-13, 2023

CALL FOR PAPERS

This virtual ICMS session encourages participants to consider constructions of the medieval past in the Middle Ages and after, particularly as manifested in the interactions between the medieval(ist) literature, historiography, and/or material culture of postmedieval periods. Juxtaposing papers that engage with one or more historical periods, this session will reopen debates about the problems and possibilities of periodization while illuminating how medievalists and postmedieval scholars can productively collaborate across period boundaries.

In his influential Palimpsests: Literature in the Second Degree, Gérard Genette proposed terms to refer to the relationship among texts: intertextuality, paratextuality, metatextuality, architextuality, and hypertextuality. Connections among texts are not new to medieval scholars, as is evident on volumes about sources and analogues; yet, textual networks might be more productively explored against trade routes, religious and political invasions, and ideological impositions. How are textual transpositions, which Genette defines as “serious transformation[s]” (212), anchored in cultural clashes and exchanges?

As twenty-first century scholars have continued the work of identifying, editing, and giving historical context to writings by early modern women, they have turned increasingly to larger questions of reading and interpreting these works—questions that have recently gained particular attention in Lara Dodds and Michelle M. Dowd's edited collection, Renaissance Formalism and Early Modern Women's Writings.
