ASPECTS OF CHANGE IN THE FICTION OF JOSEPH CONRAD

South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

The SAMLA 94 conference theme of “change” encourages us to look at texts in different ways, which might include looking at texts that reflect real change or that perhaps illustrate the appearance of change coupled with a sense, ultimately, of stasis. This theme of “change” gives us a chance to examine Conrad’s authorial engagement with the potential complexities of change in society or politics and in our personal lives.

Interdisciplinary approaches to bibliography and technical studies are welcome.

Administory Vol. 8 - Administrative Cultures and their Aesthetics

updated: 
Thursday, April 14, 2022 - 9:07am
Administory
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 31, 2022

This special issue of Administory focuses on the relationship between different traditions of literature or art, on the one hand, and of state administration, on the other. By highlighting the "story" in Administory, it seeks to unpack aesthetic configurations manifest in literary and artistic works engaging with bureaucratic topics and spaces, set in (or against) a variety of historical backgrounds. Drawing on literature, but also on film or other arts to highlight different administrative cultural contexts and then contrasting them in their specificity is the goal of the edition.

Post-Now: Community, Collaboration, and Poetic Practice (EXTENDED DEADLINE)

MMLA 2022 Minneapolis; Creative Writing: Poetry Permanent Section
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 18, 2022

The Creative Writing II: Poetry permanent section of the Midwest Modern Language Association seeks creative, critical, and hybrid proposals that connect to this year’s convention theme of “Post-Now.” We are particularly interested in presentations from poets and poet-scholars who engage with future-oriented poetics and praxis. Questions to consider include: How is (your) poetry and poetic practice positioned within the (ecological, technological, political, intersectional) contemporary momentum of the twenty-first century? How does poetry engage with and/or towards the future while also negotiating past and present? What poetic possibilities lie ahead, and what cannot be left behind?  

Images of the Hero: Heroism in Literature (East/Southeast Regional Meeting of the CCL)

In The Hero with A Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell asserts that the mythic figure of the hero is central to understanding the human experience. He argues that “the hero is symbolical of that divine creative and redemptive image within us all, only waiting to be known and rendered into life.” The hero, in other words, might be said to be the embodiment or archetype of the imago Dei raised to the highest pitch, functioning as an exemplar of what humanity at its level best can do.

Dis/Orientations and Dis/Entanglements in Contemporary Literature and Culture: An International Conference

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 22, 2022

Under the auspices of the project ‘Orientation’: A Dynamic Perspective of Contemporary Fiction and Culture (1990-onwards) (Ref. FFI2017-86417-P), this Conference explores how the concept of ‘orientation’ can offer a renewed perspective on literary texts and cultural products alike. By positioning ‘orientation’ in close relation to (multiple) temporalities (or “polytemporality”, following Victoria Browne), space, and recognition of the ‘other’, this Conference (and the project) addresses the dynamic and fluid nature of today’s fiction and culture in English. As Sara Ahmed points out, “[o]rientations are about the direction we take that puts some things and not others in our reach” (56).

SUMMER SCHOOL 2022 »TACET AD LIBITUM! TOWARDS A POETICS AND POLITICS OF SILENCE« 24-29 JULY 2022 (Deadline: 1 May 2022)

Silence (tacere or Schweigen) has been considered by Franz Rosenzweig among others as a subversive act or defiant stance of the tragic hero against overwhelming power mechanisms of necessity, i.e., totalization and universality. It has also, however, been regarded as an epiphenomenon (or a result) of marginalization and oppression by postcolonial theorists. The latters’ understanding marks silence as an end, a potential violent effect of the logics of exclusion and marginalization by “signifying machines”. The former understanding marks silence as a means of rendering mechanisms of powers inoperative.

A burgeoning professional literature attests to the rewards and challenges of teaching comics and teaching with comics (for recent examples, see Wallner, Framing Education, 2019; Parker, Teaching Artfully, 2021; the forthcoming Smyth, Teaching with Comics and Graphic Novels, 2022; and the authoritative anthology With Great Power Comes Great Pedagogy, eds. Kirtley, Garcia, and Carlson, 2020).

In response to that literature, as well as the challenges of remote learning under COVID, this panel invites succinct 15-minute presentations that address the questions, What is it like to relearn the teaching of comics? and How can comics teachers reframe crisis as opportunity?

GCRR Press is inviting papers for a themed article collection relating to the New Testament Gospel of John for inclusion in a proposed scholarly anthology in the field of Jewish Studies. Topics should explore the Fourth Gospel in regard to its representation, depiction, and treatment of "the Jews" in the Fourth Gospel. By exploring this topic across time and place, this collection aims to provide an historical context for understanding not only the Jewish Jesus but the specific framework in which Johannine Christianity was tied intrinsically to ancient Judaism, while simultaneously distancing itself of Jewish thought and culture.
