2023 Dress and Body Association Conference
CALL FOR PAPERS
While we have already received a good crop of exciting paper proposals, we have decided to reopen and extend our submission deadline for proposals to AUGUST 1.
If you are still thinking about presenting your work at this year’s conference, or if you were running a little late for the first deadline, this is your chance!
Conference theme: "CLIMATE CHANGE: IMPLICATIONS FOR DRESS AND THE BODY"
For English speakers, there are two major definitions of “climate” as a noun:
32nd Annual CDE Conference, Innsbruck (Austria), 2-5 May 2024
The German Society for Contemporary Theatre and Drama in English (CDE) is pleased to announce its 32nd annual conference (2-5 May 2024). It is organized by the Department of English at the University of Innsbruck and will be held as a residential conference at ‘Tiroler Bildungsinstitut Grillhof’ in Innsbruck.
Theatre in the Digital Age
Panel - No Critique Left Behind: Learning to Read in a Postcritique Era
Chairs: Abigail Culpepper (Brown Univeristy), Andrew P Clark (Brown University)
Teaching the Literature Survey Course
Late in the lengthy, posthumously published essay, “The Education of the People,” D.H.
International Workshop / University of Mannheim, 14-15 June 2024
This conference takes its cue from the fact that various topical tendencies and events have refuelled interest in landscapes and the countryside in recent years, be it the climate crisis, the crisis of national identity in the context of the Brexit debate or reconsiderations of Britain’s colonial past. It aims at exploring the multi-layered interest in British and Irish landscapes in the 21st century, as writers and researchers alike critically engage with the ideologically charged notion of the countryside by re-reading and reconfiguring popular tropes.
In the winter of 2022, with the launch of ChatGPT and the pursuit of advancing Large Language Models, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning quickly appeared in the mainstream of the social, scientific, and artistic debate. While the use of AI in social and scientific development is widely accepted and advanced in art and creative work, the presence of AI is not so obvious and undisputed. Many artists reach for AI as a tool enabling them to accomplish their artistic intentions. At the same time, AI is not original and has already raised plagiarism and copyright problems within the context of the arts, including visual art.
Whether in bridging divides or leaping over them, contesting a binary or dismantling it, “trans(-)” linguistically registers changes of state as well as movements in time and space; it indexes communication or traffic that puts places, persons, and things in new relations to one another and, perhaps, to themselves.
Chapter proposals are invited for a volume on contemporary memory and literary studies edited by Dr. D. Sudha Rani ( VNRVJIET ), Dr. Rachel Irdaya Raj ( VNRVJIET ), Dr.Shashibhusan Nayak (GP Nayagarh).
The Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics is now accepting submissions for its forthcoming regular issue, Vol. 46, No. 3, Autumn 2023.
Manuscripts in MS Word (5,000–8,000 words) following the MLA style should be sent to email@example.com by 31 August 2023.

Call for Papers: Symposium on "The Identity of Fictional Characters"
Dates: November 15-17, 2023

We are pleased to announce the Symposium on "The Identity of Fictional Characters" as part of the "International Comic Book Research Conference: Perspectives from Visual Culture."

‘Feminism’ , according to the Oxford Dictionary , is defined as a “belief in and advocacy of
the political , economic and social equality of the sexes expressed especially through
organized activity on behalf of women’s rights and interests”. From the various
spheres of feminism , ‘feminine feminism’ has become a quite attractive topic ,
especially among women . It suggests women not to sacrifice her identity for the
patriarchal society , both physically and mentally , be powerful and strong . Though ,
it is a complex notion as femininity is a feeling and not a concrete thing , but it, at
the same time , also inspires to not to sacrifice the ‘girly’ features thus expected from

"Queering the Family: Exploring Non-Normative Family Figures in Literature, Arts, and the Media"
Call for papers, Whatever. A Transdisciplinary Journal of Queer Theories and Studies, 7 (Summer 2024), themed section
Serena Guarracino (Università dell’Aquila), Anna Chiara Corradino (Università di Pisa)
The lightning-fast pace of innovation in weak and strong AI, open AI, and natural language processing have jointly given rise to a developing need to reshuffle and refurbish most of our pedagogical and rhetorical practices. The growing use of GPT 3, Chat GPT, LaMDA, DELL E-2, Packback, and other AI-empowered algorithmic tools have pushed the field of rhetoric and composition to transform, giving rise to a grim scenario characterized by pedagogical emasculation, professional anxiety on the part of writing instructors and researchers in rhetoric and composition.
C19 2024 Panel CFP: “Endlessness”
Gendered Marginalities at the Border(s): Intersections, Hegemony and Resistance in Contemporary Asia
When we come together as queer, trans people, as feminist, dalit, adivasi, labour activists, as students collective members, labour union members, climate action group members, or as recluses hiding from the rest, magic happens. Entire worlds of possibilities sit within us, waiting for the thrill of some interaction, a trace of hope to channel them. They materialize in the strategies of our politics, together or alone, in the act that balances what we imagine and what is needed. Too often, it takes a few moments to even allow imagination to run wild – free-range wild, that too, not wild as in wilderness, as in orcas and mushrooms and such.
Prisons and Poetry (Seminar)
Northeast Modern Language Association 2024 - Boston, MA (March 7-10)
“It is hard,” writes incarcerated poet Etheridge Knight, “to make a poem in prison.” And yet, poetry has long been a major form of literary production in prisons around the world. From Oscar Wilde to Mahmoud Darwish, celebrated poets have reflected on experiences of incarceration in their work. In the context of the U.S. mass incarceration, poets such as Jimmy Santiago Baca and Reginald Dwayne Betts have risen to fame during or after their imprisonment. Poetry has also been an important element of writings by many political prisoners, such as Wole Soyinka, Assata Shakur, and Leonard Peltier.
