Call for Papers (Spring Issue 2021) The image of Syria as a war-torn country has always dominated global news cycles. On one hand, news outlets discuss how the international powers serve their own economic and political interests by implementing the Middle East Grand Strategy revolving around ‘ Creative Chaos’ policies. In short, waging a proxy war on Syria’s political and economic system, destroying culture and infrastructure, affecting civilians, violating human rights principles under the pretext of democracy and protection of human rights, with the aim to reshape Middle East politics. In this context, such news cycles persistently distort President Assad's counterstrategy.

People form new grammars and dialects through creative languaging: creolization, code-switching, etc. The results carry markers of intercultural relations and historical tensions. How do raciolinguistics manifest in Medieval literature, Medieval reiterations, and historiography?Languages have a deep capacity to coexist, disrupt, and change, and they survive each cultural encounter either strengthened or weakened, but certainly transmogrified. Language’s abilities to form new grammars and dialects through creative formations is apparent in both Medieval texts and in Medieval reiterations.

The global medieval and early modern world (broadly considered, c. 900-1750) underwent myriad profound changes, from devastating famines, plagues, and wars to an increased entanglement of the continents, economic transformations, and technological and scientific developments. These changes were often accompanied by calls for the reshaping of the institutions and structures – political, religious, intellectual, etc. – which undergirded societies’ approach to these challenges, encompassing such responses as resistance, resilience, and renewal.

MLA 2022 : CLCS-Medieval Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 15, 2021

The discipline of Comparative Literature has already been through its “age of multiculturalism” (1995) and its “age of globalization” (2006), in the effort to displace European/Eurocentric hierarchies of value with more nuanced goals for literary study. As Comparative Literature has diversified, however, medieval studies has often been aligned with the old Eurocentrisms. What can medieval studies contribute to the next phase of the discipline, the “age of anti-racism”?Please send 250 word abstracts to Michelle Warren (michelle.r.warren@dartmouth.edu) by March 15th.

Theorizing Zombiism II: Undead Again

 

29-31 July, 2021

 

University of Gothenburg

 

The zombie as an allegory for cultural, social, and scientific analysis spans almost every discipline including humanities, biology, mathematics, anthropology, economics, and political science. This range of use for the zombie narrative is a clear indication of its adaptability and viability as a distinct framework for critical theory. Theorizing Zombiism 2: Undead again will thus serve as a timely and much-needed platform for the development of international and interdisciplinary relationships between researchers, educators, practitioners and other interested parties.

PAMLA Session: The City and Canadian Literature and Authors

updated: 
Friday, February 12, 2021 - 2:02pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

The theme of the 2021 PAMLA conference focuses on ideas and forms of cities, fictive cities, and symbolic cities, and on various representations of urban cultures and peoples. This panel focuses on real and fictional Canadian cities, expressing visions of city types, culture, and the development of identity through cityscapes in Canadian literature and/or by Canadian writers. Given Canada’s great size but small, dispersed population, “city” has divided Canada into the “Big Three” -- Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver -- and the rest, not only from the Canadian perspective, but also from external perspectives.
