deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 1, 2021

I am currently editing Graphic Novels and Comics as World Literature for Bloomsbury and unfortunately had an article on African comics drop out and am looking for a fairly quick replacement.  Feel free to send me an email with a short abstract by January 25.  The article due date is negotiable but would need to come before April 1.  The original description for the collection, which already includes articles on Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Oceania and on movement between borders, is below. The article would need to focus on comics from and/or about Africa but the approach is certainly open. I am happy to answer any questions at jhodapp@northwestern.edu.

You are invited to submit a paper to the "Jewish Literature and Culture" Session at the Annual Conference of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) to be held 11-14 November 2021 in Las Vegas.  Jewish Literature and Culture: The Call of Memory Contemporary Jewish writers and thinkers have frequently reacted to the emergence of the Holocaust as a cultural and human rights paradigm by refracting memory toward forgotten genocides, repressed histories, and overlooked parallels with colonial and imperialist projects. The formation of comparative, multidirectional, and “concentrationary” memory studies owes much to writers like Edgar Hildenrath, Imre Kertész, Ruth Klüger, Jorge Semprún, or Patrick Modiano.

"Shadows of Empire: Decline and Transformations of a Global Vision"

Friday, April 30, 2021

Recent political transatlantic events, from the culmination of the Brexit to the attempt of coup in Washington D.C. in January, demand new interpretations of the declining role of populist political formations of the 21st century. On the one hand, Trump's America aspired to the establishment of a totalitarian regime that would counterbalance the emergence of China as a global political leader; on the other, the negotiations leading to the Brexit revealed a kind of British exceptionalism that is not at all new in relation to continental Europe.

True Crime Index - Call for Book Reviews

True Crime Index
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 30, 2021

As an increasingly popular genre, true crime has enjoyed a fascinating surge in both academic and cultural interest over the last twenty years. As a relatively new academic discipline, scholars such as Mark Seltzer, David Schmidt, Tanya Horeck, and many others have published ground-breaking studies of the phenomenon of true crime and our various responses to it. However, the gap between popular culture’s interest in true crime and the burgeoning academic discipline remains wide, and True Crime Index invites reviews that seek to close this gap.

The comparative approach acknowledges the co-existence of diverse entities in our world and takes for its province the understanding of multiple relations between these entities, and the cultures of which they are constituents. Comparative practice demands that difference be respected paving the way for mutuality and understanding. This approach is particularly  fruitful in the study of the arts and their nesting cultures in the Asian subcontinent.

Adapting Print Genres for the Victorian Stage

updated: 
Wednesday, January 13, 2021 - 6:55pm
The Comparative Drama Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 27, 2021

"Adapting Print Genres for the Victorian Stage" will consider how British plays within the Victorian era (1837-1901) interacted with and responded to news stories, social movements, or cultural debates appearing in print genres, including newspapers, the periodical press, and literature. Often, a theatrical adaptation of a popular novel appeared even before its serialization had concluded, as in the case of Charles Dickens's 1839 novel Nicholas Nickleby, which appeared on 19 November 1838 at the Adelphi Theatre, adapted by Edward Stirling, a mere eight numbers into its serialization.

Sunday, January 31, 2021

The Charles Dickens Society is pleased to announce an extended deadline for abstracts for the 2021 Symposium, which will take place online from July 12-14, 2021. As you may know, we only recently decided to convert the 2021 Symposium to an online meeting. One terrific side effect is that, since no one needs to make plans for travel, we can extend the deadline and get acceptances out a little later. The new deadline is therefore Sunday, January 31, 2021. To have your work considered, please submit an abstract of no more than 300 words to Sean Grass at scggsl@rit.edu.
