The notion of an emergent medieval ‘gay subculture’ remains one of the most highly contested claims of John Boswell’s 1981 magnum opus Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality. In the decades since its publication, research on medieval queerness has tended to emphasise the individual over the collective whether in terms of identity, experience and as constructed discursive subjects. Despite this, landmark studies such as those by Michael Rocke, Carolyn Dinshaw and Kadin Henningsen have demonstrated some of the ways in which medieval people built networks of companionship and mutual support grounded in a shared experience of living outside of their societies’ norms of gender and sexuality.

Human(ities) Matters: Academia, Community, and Civic Life (Roundtable)

The humanities as an academic field has always been predicated on helping societies harness critical knowledge in improving our understanding of the human condition. Yet, scholars in the humanities continue to have a challenging time bridging their work with the larger preoccupations of the community, continuing to be weighed down by the twin discourses of triviality or the “Ivory Tower”. The rise of public humanities–the work of engaging communities-at-large in the intersections of history, traditions, humanistic culture, and material realities of civic life–is a testament to the value that humanities scholars can bring to the public when they are able to translate their high-level academic skills into transformative prospects outside the university.

In his 2017 inauguration speech, Donald Trump painted a picture of “American carnage” sweeping the nation. Echoing the rhetoric used throughout his campaign, he described his vision of the present state of America in apocalyptic terms: from “rusted out factories, scattered like tombstones across the landscape” to “the crime, and the gangs, and the drugs that have stolen too many lives.” For Trump and his supporters, this apocalypse was the America he was inheriting—yet for many other Americans, such tropes were instead used to characterize the nation that Trump led from 2017 to 2021. Accordingly, in his 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden evoked similar language when he framed the presidential election as a “battle for the soul of this nation.”

The “publish or perish” mantra in academia intimidates and baffles graduate students in equal measure at different stages in their careers. Too often, there is neither enough discussion nor adequate support available at the departmental level to help graduate students navigate the opaque process of revising a conference-length paper into a publishable manuscript.

The Incredible Nineteenth Century: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Fairy Tale (I19) seeks to publish the best scholarship on the century that was, in many ways, the time period in which the modern genres of science fiction and fantasy began, and in which the academic study of fairy tale and folklore has its roots. I19 interprets “the nineteenth century” broadly, using the dates of “The Long Nineteenth Century”—roughly, from the beginning of the French Revolution to the end of World War I—but even these dates are just notable historical markers as they approximately coincide with Romanticism and Modernism, respectively.

Seeking Essays about Rural Pennsylvania

updated: 
Friday, July 22, 2022 - 9:34am
Bucknell University Press
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 1, 2023

Narrative essays about life in rural Pennsylvania sought for an anthology to be edited by Jerry Wemple, a PA-native and award-winning poet and creative nonfiction writer. Outside of settings in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh, the idea of rural is open to the writer’s interpretation. However, a sense of place must be at the forefront of the work. (Julia Spicher Kasdorf’s essay “Mountains and Valleys” in her publication The Body and the Book is an example of the type of focus sought.) Rural Pennsylvania has a diverse history dating back hundreds of years. However, the breadth of that diversity is sometimes unacknowledged. Therefore, we are especially interested in considering essays by writers of Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian ancestry.

Chapters for The Poetics of Grief and Melancholy in East-West Conflicts and Reconciliations

We are inviting chapter proposals for the edited book The Poetics of Grief and Melancholy in East-West Conflicts and Reconciliations. It is a collection of academic essays that examines the representation, aesthetics, dilemma and/or dichotomy of the notions of grief and melancholy in East-West exchanges and cultural dialogues. Contributors can explore the topic in the dimensions of individual behaviors under specific social norms and cultural products such as literature, film, music, art, theatre performance and any other forms of arts/genres etc.

Religion in American Literature

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Annual Conference (Nov. 11-13, 2022)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 15, 2022

This session examines the relationship between religion and American literature. It welcomes papers that explore the intersectionality between religion, politics, and literature.  How can literary texts help us understand the discourses of the religious right or the left and their search for community?  How does faith contribute both to harmful or positive visions of community?  What can literature teach us about the type of faith that will allow us to create and embrace “the beloved community” introduced by Josiah Royce, and later highlighted by Martin Luther King, Jr.? Proposals that engage with the conference theme of "Geographies of the Fantastic and the Quotidian” are of particular interest. 

'Poetry Led Me by the Hand out of Madness': Resilience in Confessional Poetry

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Though many Confessional poets lived and/or ended their lives tragically, their writing often speaks of resilience, survival, and their struggles to overcome depression. For such poets as John Berryman, Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and W.D. Snodgrass, writing can be seen as, in the quote in the title from Sexton, a form of personal salvation. This panel aims to examine how Confessional work demonstrates resilience in the face of the poets' own personal struggles, including such personal traumas as mental health, failing marriages and relationships, and the difficulties some faced as women writers. Papers on any of the listed writers or others who may be broadly construed as Confessional will be considered.
