Nature and the climate are one of the essential factors affecting the lives of societies, shaping their culture, economy and politics. Both today and in the ancient world, natural conditions have forced permanent changes to the social structure and the way in which reality is treated, shaping a specific relationship between people and their natural environment.
Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."

NO WRITER IS AN ISLAND: BUILDING COMMUNITY IN THE WRITING CLASSROOM
SAMLA SPECIAL SESSION FOR SAMLA 93, taking place in Atlanta, GA., November 4-6, 2021
We invite proposals for this virtual (online) session exploring any aspect of Afro-Asian coalition-building projects in literary or cultural studies, with interest in engaging across cross-racial, interracial, or interminority studies bridging Black and Asian cultures and values. The tension and conflicts of interminority in the US, especially the Black-Asian conflicts, have been a big issue… but is it really the issue between the two communities only? Afro-Asian solidarity means a lot to both Black and Asian groups as their coalition, connection, allyship, and understanding have been undermined for decades, for many reasons, but here we gather to call out to say the Afro-Asian solidarity is revolutionary.

City dwellers have a unique opportunity to see and engage in group political activities that those in more rural areas do not. Their everyday lives can be impacted by political demonstrations whether they are actively participating or not. The perspectives that we usually get are from the government, press, or political leaders. These accounts miss how people actually experience and understand the protests they see and/or participate in. As such, examining the life writing of those who participated or observed city protests can be intriguing and add a personal element to group politics. This panel will focus on the experiences of those who planned, participated, and/or observed protests in various cities. Ideas to be examined include personal vs.

Experimental fiction owes an unacknowledged debt to David Markson. A pioneer in the modernist tradition of James Joyce, William Faulkner, and Malcolm Lowry, Markson is generally grouped with renowned postmodernists such as John Barth and William Gaddis. Credited with the creation of his own genre, Markson’s later novels employ a highly idiosyncratic method of combining biographical and historical material to accrete a narrative that is often devoid of traditional characters or plot. While the early novels (which he deemed “Entertainments”) demonstrate a mastery of conventional forms including the Western and pulp noir, the innovations of his later novels have attracted a small but devoted following who have proselytized for a wider readership.
