The next issue of USAbroad aims to acknowledge and celebrate the importance and impact of bell hooks' transgressive interdisciplinarity, which challenges the boundaries of academic disciplines and those of the cultural marketplace to present a "feminism for everybody." We invite proposals that address the myriad themes of her intellectual output: from gender to sex and sexuality, from sexism to the construction of masculinity, from racism to the representation of blackness, from the house as a site of resistance to women's labor, from the university teaching to education in general.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 10, 2022

This special session invites proposals that engage with literary or cultural food studies, food novels, or other texts that depict food and eating in unconventional ways. How can we approach literary or cultural texts through the framework of food and eating and what effect does this have on the reading experience or the audience? This panel is especially interested in proposals that examine socially or politically sensitive topics and, with respect to the conference theme Post-Now, the alternative ways of reading and perceiving that the food lens can enable. Proposals should indicate your name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address, and paper title, as well as the methodologies used and the text(s) under consideration.

DEADLINE EXTENDED - CFP: "American Literature 1870-Present" (MMLA Permanent Section)

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 10, 2022

The MMLA’s permanent section on American Literature After 1870 invites papers which, building on the conference theme, examine the topic of “post-book” American literature. In an 1868 essay, John William De Forest first used the term “The Great American Novel,” which has had an outsized impact on the American literary imagination ever since. This panel asks how the term applies in an age of sophisticated narratives that often live outside of the printed page, or in transmedia combinations with the printed page. While acknowledging the continuing importance of print texts both old and new, our panel seeks papers that examine the changes to literary analysis, objects, and pedagogy associated with a contemporary “post book” orientation.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 20, 2022

As the COVID-19 pandemic exposed structural cracks in public health policies and health care systems around the globe, the humanities intensified arguments for their inclusion in health care, health education, policy development, and public health initiatives, citing, among other things, their existing work on cultural analysis, gender, race, and class, disease construction, illness narratives, the decoding of text, and perspective-taking. At the onset of the pandemic, humanities scholars from across the world quickly produced editorials and lecture series, arguing for, and demonstrating the value of, the humanities in responding to the global health crisis.

Non - A Journal of Alternative Sexualities in Literature and the Arts
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 31, 2022

Despite forming the basis for many cultural and political norms in the world today, sexuality is also that which resists easy normativity. In addition to agitating for change in the form of legal rights, critical thinking on non-conforming sexualities has also raised the question of sexuality itself as non-conformist. This latter strand of thinking allows us to think of sexuality as always having alternatives, and also being alternative to fixed forms of itself. This theorisation considers sexuality both from the political perspective from which it is often studied, and also from the perspective of literature and the arts.

The aftermath of societal and cultural traumas can be cause for growth, hope, change, and (r)evolution. The last two years have brought the world to such moments. Questions may arise such as: What is the role of Children’s and Young Adult Literature within and after such traumas? How do events such as war or pandemic cause reflection and change on societal, cultural, and/or individual levels? We seek papers that explore all aspects of Children’s and Young Adult Literature, as well as those addressing the conference theme of Post Now.
