Migration In and Out of Africa: A Cultural Perspective
*Extended Deadline: June 30, 2023*

Speculative Fiction has become the space in which imaginings of the future proliferate, not totally free of the specter of history, but free from the fatalism that subaltern communities often are forced to cope with under the weight of that history. As such, Indigenous writers, both in the US and in the rest of the world, have turned to the genre as a way to construct futurisms of survivance and resistance. Because settler histories work towards indigenous erasure, the question of individual and communal autonomy is central. In this context, Speculative Fiction has become a key component in the Indigenous fight to regain personal and communal autonomy from narratives of erasure and abjection.
Shakespeare’s plays have never been far from political and cultural controversy. Today, Shakespeare still sits at the centre of the cultural establishment. However, this canonical status is under renewed attack from critics and detractors. Is it time to jettison Shakespeare from the syllabus and the stage, making way for new voices? Alternatively, what are the opportunities and strengths of working/woking with Shakespeare’s texts?
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Ninth Biennial Conference of the RECEPTION STUDY SOCIETY
at New Mexico State University and the Courtyard Marriott Las Cruces at NMSU
Sept. 28-30, Las Cruces, NM
This session is open to all papers that explore some aspect of Young Adult literature and/or culture. The panel is particularly interested in papers attuned to some facet of the conference theme, "Shifting Perspectives.” How do changing perspectives on adolescence and young adults impact YA literature and/or culture? As the conference occurs in Portland, in an environmentally aware space, presentations about YA and environmental impact are important. Further, presentations that examine diverse voices (ie. LGBT2S, BIPOC, disability studies, etc.) in media are encouraged. This panel welcomes submissions about young adult literature, film, television, etc. Feel free to submit an abstract pertaining to the conference theme or otherwise.
PAMLA 2023 Special Session
October 26-29, 2023
This panel is and isn’t about poetry. At its core, it is a panel about our reading habits surrounding poetry, the ways in which the definition of poetry has shifted in its capaciousness, about how we recognize a poem, what has happened to poetry’s public in the wake of Amanda Gorman’s powerful reading of "The Hill We Climb" in Joseph Biden’s presidential inauguration, and what poetry might become in a heavily digitized, perhaps even metaversal future. The specter that haunts this panel is Stanley Fish’s “How to Recognize a Poem When You See One,” but his essay is really just one starting point in how critics have been fervently trying to recognize our reading habits on poetry.
An international conference titled PLASTIC TURN will be held on 3rd and 4th of August, 2023, at the University of North Bengal, India. The keynote speakers are: Haun Saussy (University of Chicago), Karen Thornber (Harvard University), and Olga Solovieva (University of Chicago). Although the title of the conference is PLASTIC TURN, following on Ranjan Ghosh’s book The Plastic Turn and how he introduces this term into our critical discourse, this international conference broadens the ambit of intervention by emphasizing on plastic studies from a variety of fields and perspectives. Engagements and critiques of Ghosh’s book are welcome but also papers ranging across a variety of subjects incidental to plastic will be entertained.
