-Roger Ebertz, University of Dubuque [1]

Animal(ity) in Southern Literature (In-Person Panel)

updated: 
Monday, March 14, 2022 - 2:29pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

This traditional session welcomes submissions on any representation of nonhuman animals or animality in southern literature from the last century. With the development of posthumanism and human-animal studies over the last few decades, nonhuman animals in literature invite readers to no longer consider them as only symbols of human experience, but instead as literary agents of cultural change for both human and nonhuman worlds. Particularly, this panel seeks to explore how those nonhuman animals are active in southern literature. Panelists may be interested in examining nonhuman animals or animality in a single southern text, a southern author’s oeuvre, or an entire southern genre.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Modern life has become defined in many ways by our digital experiences, and it is in this technological environment that a retreat to an idealized version of the past has been increasingly realized and depicted through social media. The distinctive aesthetics of cottagecore, dark and light academia, and vintage movements represent creative cross sections through which individuals blend pop culture, literature, fantasy, art, and lifestyle elements in an often fantastical, romanticized, or idealized version of the past—one inherently informed by and expressed through a modern, digital present.

Violence and Autonomy: Indigenizing Speculative Fiction (PAMLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, March 11, 2022 - 11:40am
Carlos Tkacz / University of Nevada, Las Vegas
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

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. If the weight of history has and does manifest itself in violence, both physical and otherwise, then the question of autonomy is central, for violence is perhaps the most basic violation of the individual and the communal.
