updated: 
Sunday, April 9, 2023 - 8:40pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2023

Proposals on any topic related to Shakespeare are welcome, though we specifically seek proposals that engage with the 2023 MMLA [Midwest Modern Language Association] theme of “Going Public.” What might Shakespeare have to say about democracy, power, and our current political moment? What were Shakespeare’s “publics” and how might they help us think about our current moment? How “democratic” are performances of Shakespeare today and are there models for how to make it more relevant and accessible?

Friday, April 7, 2023 - 7:42am

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 30, 2023

Short Abstract:

The multiplicity of gender has been a feature of many cultures throughout history, but its meaning and application have varied widely. The panel examines the coloniality/neo-coloniality, and the charges thereof, of the "third-gender" category by tracing its development across a variety of local contexts and times. We invite papers that examine how local formulations of gender intersect with, transform, and assimilate third-ness as an intelligible form of gender.

Call for book chapters in an edited volume: Human Rights and IndianLiterary Communities

This collection undertakes various explorations about the role of literary (and related cultural) communities in the acknowledgement and understanding of human rights bearing subjects. Can literary texts highlight and empathise with those on the social margins as legal subjects possessing rights? Do texts also recognise and challenge the contours of human rights? Can literary communities help imagine and reimagine the outlines of those deemed human and therefore capable of being human rights bearing citizens?

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 14, 2023

From the ancient text of the Kama Sutra, the first script that studied sexual intercourse as science (Chakraborty and Thakurata), to the 2011 cult novel Fifty Shades of Grey, sex figures in literature in many different ways. That is, if it figures at all. While in the Victorian era “silence became the rule” on the subject of sex (Foucault), Preciado writes that today sex and the discourse surrounding it have silently “turned into governmental agents” of power.

Contemporary Global Feminisms – Solidarity Across Differences

Taking place 13 June 2023, Birkbeck University and online

Deadline for CfP: 24th April 2023, 9:00 AM

Since its initiation in 2016, the CHASE Feminist Network has been in conversation with many of the transitions that took place within academia and the world at large. During this period, the attitudes towards and within feminism have also experienced vast shifts, where intersectionality has permeated the mainstream just as dividing lines have been erected between the feminisms of varying kinds. Yet at its core, there remains the reverberation of solidarity against patriarchal oppression, which is ever-present in our contemporary moment.
