H-Net’s theme for this year’s conference, “Critical Conversations: Teaching and Creating Community in Difficult Times,” will resonate with teachers at all levels of the educational system and especially those in the humanities and social sciences. In an era when educators are under assault for teaching Critical Race Theory, implementing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives, and subjected to various external forces regarding curriculum development, book bans, and course redesigns, this conference will be a gathering to navigate these challenges and discuss solutions and strategies in the face of threats to academic freedom.

Society for the Study of Southern Literature MLA 2024 Call for Papers

Given the presidential theme Celebration: Joy and Sorrow, this panel will explore the topic of “Black South Joy.”

So much of the popular discourse about the South, and about the experience of Blackness in the South particularly, revolves around narratives of white supremacist violence. As scholars of southern literature, we spend much of our time encountering Saidiya Hartman’s “scenes of subjection” in the works of both white and Black authors alike. And yet, even in the darkest moments, Black folks in the South have created rituals of celebration, not only as acts of resistance, but as reflections of the simple fact of their humanity.

Celebrating Virginia Woolf's Eighteenth Century

Beyond her call to lay flowers on Aphra Behn’s grave or taking her “Common Reader” from Samuel Johnson, Woolf’s engagement with the eighteenth-century was profound. Proposal might consider aesthetics, visual and literary history, fashion and decor, print culture and/or printing technology, waxworks, politics, etc.
