Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.

Whether from health crisis, family isolation, or governmental-social prejudice, care has always been an invaluable resource in queer communities, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual. This care manifests not only in physical forms, such as providing food and medicine, shelter for queer homeless populations, and access to health care, but also in the ability to connect with new modes of family and to fight in the broader struggle for queer rights and liberation. However, this care can become disrupted due to biases present within the mainstream queer community, such against queer people of color, queer women and gender non-conforming people, and queer people with disabilities.

Modernism/modernity Print Plus Cluster Proposal

2020 marked the 100th anniversary of “modernism’s lost masterpiece,” Hope Mirrlees’s Paris: A Poem. Published by Hogarth Press in the spring of 1920, and typeset by Virginia Woolf, this ground-breaking long poem maps the range of continental avant-garde aesthetics of the 1910s even as it both engages and anticipates the mythical methods and epic conventions of James Joyce, Ezra Pound, and T.S. Eliot.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

During the pandemic, creative writing classes, like most of academia, moved online. Traditional creative-writing pedagogies and practices were forced to reinvent themselves on Zoom. This emergency process provided opportunities for re-examination, experimentation, and growth. This panel invites practitioners of creative writing and its pedagogies to explore ways that creative writing instruction and praxis were altered by the pandemic.

Possible questions to consider:

· What changes to teaching and writing did you experience during the pandemic?

· How did the pandemic change perspectives on creative writing and creative writing instruction?

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel asks creative writers to speculate on their own work or that of others and envision the future of the novel. The panel proposes to address the following questions:

· What technologies (such as the internet, videogaming, virtual reality, or artificial intelligence) might shape the form of the novel of the future?

· How might the novel be impacted by future trends and technologies in publishing and the literary marketplace?

· How might the novel form be re-envisioned?

· How do other media, such as videogames, use narrative in novelistic modalities?

The panel invites a wide range of interpretations of this topic and encourages creative work

The taste of festivals forms a significant part of our life, and many festivals are associated with religion, remembrance, and prayer. Food during the religious holiday of Christmas can either make or break the holiday spirit; for example, the memory of having the best turkey, the best mince pies, and sitting around the Christmas tree warms many a heart. Carnival, another religious festival that is also a cultural event, has its own traditions regarding festival food.
