What does it mean to be in a state of exile (literally or metaphorically)? Must longing be part of exile or can exile exist without longing? This virtual panel will consist of creative writers who will read their work (creative non-fiction, fiction, and poetry) and in which they explore what home can mean. Work may either be published or works-in-progress.

If interested, please submit the title of the essay, a brief abstract (approximately 50 words), and a longer proposal (approximately 500 words) by June 30, or when the session fills, whichever comes first to PAMLA's Online Proposal Submission Form at:

Playing on the SAMLA 93 conference theme of “Social Networks and Social Distance,” the Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on topics relevant to questions and issues of Southern networks and distance. A region often rendered into a single, monolithic entity, the South as articulated in various literatures rests at intersections of global politics, culture, economy, and history, which are often overlooked in traditional Southern studies.

The Uncanny in Language, Literature and CultureInternational Conference14-15 August 2021 – London/Onlineorganised byLondon Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”.

The travel memoir offers an opportunity to examine a number of issues in terms of creative non-fiction. Travel stories focus on individuals who become strangers to themselves when they exile themselves from the environmental and cultural factors that have defined them thus far in service of self-discovery. They link up with the grand Odysseus-like impulse of traditional and modern literature that can profoundly alter identity when they travel and write about their experiences. Topics to consider include the issue of fact vs.

The Journal of Literary Multilingualism explores texts written in non-native languages, in a mix of languages and alternating languages. It examines a wide range of literary practices from around the globe broadly defined by multilingual and multicultural situations. The phenomenon of literary multilingualism is as old as literature itself but has received more scholarly attention as migration and globalization have increased in recent years. As the first international journal devoted entirely to this emerging interdisciplinary field, it offers a forum for cutting-edge research across the humanities and social sciences.

The publication of There There by Cheyanne/Arapaho writer Tommy Orange in 2018 and Sacred Smokes by Lakota writer Theo Van Alst in 2019 marks a shift in Indigenous stories. Unlike so many Native texts before, Oranges places his story not in Indian Country but in the urban setting of Oakland. The figure of the Urban Indian has had negative connotations within Native communities as a mark of assimilation and dilution of Indigenous culture since the figure is removed from traditional homelands and communities. Orange and other Indigenous authors, however, are publishing stories that challenge this connotation and reimagine the Urban Indian.

Historians and archaeologists, heritage scholars and professionals routinely focus  on  the digital transduction and rendering of text and artefacts when discussing the digitization of the heritage sector. Repositories, databases, 3D artifacts, immersive environments, interactive maps, and computer games are  but some of the ways in which the past is currently reproduced and conveyed. But the implications of this digital turn for those outside the academy have yet to be fully appreciated and analyzed.  This volume aims to further this conversation.

The Role of Language in Romanian Cinema

Proposals: 1st of June 2021
Papers due: 1st of November 2021

As part of its 2021 regional focus on Romanian cinema, the East European Film Bulletin is preparing a special issue on language in Romanian cinema. How do cinematographers and directors work together to create meaning through visual signals?

We are looking for contributions both about language in the linguistic sense and about film language. The two themes our special issue thus aims to bring together are 1) how human language is rendered onscreen, and 2) how the film language employed in films can be analyzed from a linguistic perspective.
