The field of narrative medicine recognizes that stories articulate the language of the body. Rita Charon, the founder of the field of narrative medicine, brought both patient and practitioner to a fuller recognition of stories as a source of medical insight and intervention: stories that may take shape in words but originate through bodily drives. Drawing lessons from psychoanalysis about “attention, drives, and relationships,” she reminded us that the nineteenth-century photographs of hysteria captured images of bodies telling stories not yet spoken.

In his discussion of the socio-ecological crisis of capitalism, Jason Moore dismisses the theoretical tendency to describe ‘twin’ social and environmental crises, arguing that ‘these are in fact a singular process of transformation that today we call a crisis’ (2011: 136). The 2023 Territorial Bodies: World Culture in Crisis conference proposed the notion of ‘territorial bodies’ as an analytical tool for addressing the singular socio-ecological crisis further.

MLA 2024: The Global South and Ireland

MLA Irish Languages, Literatures and Cultures Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 17, 2023

The Irish Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Forum invites proposals for a guaranteed roundtable at MLA 2024 (4-7 January) in Philadelphia, PA. 

This roundtable considers points of collision, comparison, and friction in the diasporic literary and cultural histories of the Global South and Ireland. How have different legacies of conquest, occupation, and resistance determined understandings of belonging to knowable communities? In turn, how have distinct practices and experiences of diaspora helped to effect specific forms of identity, affiliation, and tendency? And how have literary and cultural works served to articulate these relations into the fraught present?

Joanna Davis-McElligatt, University of North Texas
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2023

How can we harness of the power of Black joy? How have Black thinkers, scholars, and artists turned their attention to forms of Black happiness as a critical and necessary affectual response to the logics of Black death? How can we describe—and make meaningful—the radical potential of Black happiness and joy as antidotes to the overwhelming logics of Black death and destruction? While keeping in view the manifold ways Black life is denigrated, devalued, and destroyed, this panel seeks to explore representations of Black bliss, tenderness, pleasure, jubilation, mirth, and exhilaration.

Sexiness/ Sexism

What is your first thought when hearing someone is “sexy”? What images spring to your mind? Why and how? Do you relate it to bodies, desires, genders, or sex? Do you think “sexiness” is a kind of “sexism”? Or are you trying to deconstruct this association and find more possibilities to open our senses?

We’re soliciting work in three categories:

-Literary analysis using Feminist Theory and Gender Studies
e.g. Reading Chang Xiao-Hung’s Fashioning Modernity

- Reviews of mass media, films, literature, etc.
e.g. The representation of sexiness in K-pop music
e.g. Voguing category: sex siren

-Creative Writing
e.g. short stories reconceiving sexiness

Liberal Education in the Era of Migration, Refugee Crises, and Decolonization - May 4-5, 2023

University of Lethbridge, Medicine Hat College, Mount Royal University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 17, 2023

The present realities of decolonization, immigration, and refugee migration require critical enquiries into the provision of liberal studies in higher education. The aims and methods of liberal education as a pedagogical exercise and a cultural practice need to be examined within the dynamic intellectual, social, economic, and political contexts created by today’s unprecedented movement of peoples and intersections of cultures. Variously seen as forced migration, exile, dislocation, statelessness and even environmentally induced displacement, the Global refugee crises present multilocational and multilayered challenges.

Liberal Subjects, Then and Now

updated: 
Monday, February 27, 2023 - 1:02pm
NAVSA 2023 Roundtable
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 12, 2023

Liberalism’s nebulous contours have long animated studies of nineteenth-century British literature and culture. This roundtable seeks to extend these discussions by turning to this tradition’s imprint upon our practices and conceptions of teaching and scholarship. We invite papers that trouble the continued privileging of the “liberal subject,” a term that encompasses ideas of individualism, originality, and progress–values whose peculiar Victorianism has been analyzed by Elaine Hadley, Amanda Anderson, and Lauren Goodlad, among others.
