Historically in the United States of America, immigrants of Asian origin have been the subject of extremely violent legal measures—one need only recall the 1882 “Chinese Exclusion Act” or the other major laws against the naturalization of Asians voted in 1924 and 1934.
New Orleans is known as one of the most haunted cities in the U.S. and as a haven for vampires (thank you, Anne Rice), but there are so many more monsters there than ghosts and vampires. With such a rich tradition of magic and the paranormal, New Orleans dazzles artists and scholars alike, inviting us all into the mysteries. To celebrate the dark depths of the city, PCAS welcomes papers or presentations that explore the monsters and the monstrous that roam the streets and psyches of New Orleans.

Since people with certain deformities have been part and parcel of mankind then why they should be ignored, oppressed, and marginalized. They have even outshined in every field including literature, science, music, dance, sports, and politics. Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, George Washington, Hellen Keller, Franklin D Roosevelt, Frida Kahlo, Ludwig Van Beethovan, Walt Disney, Sudha Chandran, Ravindra Jain, Arunima Sinha are a few names who never allowed their physical weakness to take over their spirit.

Call for Book Chapters: “The Senses and Memory”
Vernon Press invites book chapters for an edited volume on the subject of “The Senses and Memory.”
In the field of sensory studies, the role of memory in sensory perceptions has always been a central preoccupation. From smell’s “Proust effect” to music’s ability to improve memory and mood, the senses are processed in the brain in particular ways that highlight the strong link between remembering and sensing the world. Likewise, the senses work in tandem, through synesthesia, to evoke feelings and sensations of a past event. The body plays a central role in navigating the world, and the senses provide routes to past, at times forgotten, memories.

120th Annual Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association Conference
October 26-29, 2023
In thinking of the conference theme, “Shifting Perspectives,” the Women in Latin American Film and Media session invites proposals that seek to interrogate the Latin American film canon and highlight the contributions of women and the way they have worked with and against the canon.
The panel invites proposals that highlight the contributions women directors, producers, actors, etc. have had on the their respective industries and the Latin American film canon.
Possible topics may include but are not limited to:
From the 1200s to 1600s, Stoicism was the antique philosophy that spread most rapidly in Europe. Reborn of secular tradition in cities where culture and politics were linked, classical literature, particularly that of Seneca, served as socio-political model. According to Ronald Witt, Padua’s literary legacy for example was an “eloquence without a conscience,” relying more upon Senecan Stoicism than Christian canon. The tragedies of Seneca would impact Renaissance drama, from Mussato’s Ecernis to both France and England. Oft-copied works of Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, Plutarch, and Diogenes Laertius, among others, drove Stoicismas the principal of moral thought — from Machiavelli to Erasmus to Montaigne and Muret to Lipsius.
The Charles Olson Society will host panels at the upcoming Re-Viewing Black Mountain College Conference, to be held in Asheville, North Carolina, from October 13th-15th. William Carlos Williams’ well-known like, “No Ideas but in Things,” fits well with the conference theme this year, which focuses on materiality. For the poets associated with Black Mountain College – Charles Olson, Robert Duncan, Robert Creeley, John Wieners, Ed Dorn, Denise Levertov, and others – preceding modernist poets were figures to follow and to oppose in various ways. From Ezra Pound to Williams, Gertrude Stein to James Joyce, the modernist generation’s experimental practices inspired Black Mountain poetry while also creating tension.
Digital Defoe: Studies in Defoe and His Contemporaries welcomes articles exploring any area relating to Defoe and/or his contemporaries (broadly conceived). In addition to traditional scholarly papers (roughly 4000-7000 words), we welcome essays on fresh pedagogical approaches to the works of Defoe and other writers of his era.
We also encourage the submission of innovative digital and multimedia projects, as well as experimental non-peer reviewed essays.
Scholarly essays may be eligible for essay prizes awarded by the Defoe Society.
This collection focuses on the cultural, global, political, and social narratives of future space(s).
We suggest that critiques of narratives and discourses about digital and virtual spaces,
artificial intelligence, space exploration, and even the colonization of space and planets can
provide needed insights about global futures, especially as they inform how we ought to and who
ought to live in the present with environmental destruction, information capitalism,
neoliberalism, and the remaining infrastructures of colonialism. The works here complicate the
