Global Souths Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 1, 2021

The Global Souths conference is a three‐day, interdisciplinary conference that aims to

explore the connections between the U. S. South and the Global Souths. The South is

more than place. It is a point of connection, a nexus of ideas exceeding both

geographical and ideological boundaries. We invite all scholars and graduate students

in the arts, humanities, and social sciences to submit critical and creative proposals

that explore interactions with and responses to an increasingly globalized world. 

The conference organizers welcome and encourage complete panel submissions as

well as individual paper abstract submissions. Creative submissions related to the

conference theme are also welcome.

Poetry's Publics and Counterpublics

updated: 
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 1:23pm
ACLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

This panel invites discussion on how poets have negotiated the construction of publics and counterpublics in our loosely defined contemporary moment. While writers have long been interested in the genre’s ability to foment and critique the production of virtual and actual modes of togetherness, we aim to address poetry’s engagements with collectivity after the rise of mass media and the opening up of political and aesthetic representation to diverse identities and electorates that defined the postwar period in the United States. What kinds of social bodies can texts and politics produce in this realm? What does the study of poetry reveal about historical shifts in the ways collectivity gets experienced and conceptualized?

CFP: Letters from Black Faculty

This collection seeks unfiltered, unedited letters from Black academics, intellectuals, and faculty activists that address structural racism and individual experience in the academy, and the tenuous divide between the professional, the political, and the personal. What we are looking for are those letters sent to department heads, college administrators, fellow faculty and trustees that have as their goal holding institutions to their words when they say that “Black Lives Matter”.

Movement: 2021 Medieval Studies Student Colloquium

Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 1:20pm
Medieval Studies Student Colloquium at Cornell
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

The Medieval Studies Program at Cornell University is pleased to announce its thirty-first annual graduate student colloquium (MSSC). The conference will take place on the 26th and the 27th of March, to be held virtually over Zoom.

This year’s colloquium focuses on the theme of movement. Movement denotes the movement of peoples, cultures, thoughts and goods, the migration of plants and of animals. What happens to movement when it is frozen in stone (the swoop of hair across a person’s face in a marble statue)? How does an idea change when it is translated from one language to another? We are interested in movement defined broadly and represented across a range of disciplines.

Critical Essays about Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

Overview: In 2010, Cartoon Network debuted a new animated series called Adventure Time, and within just a few short years, the show had become both a pop culture phenomenon and a critical darling; perhaps this reception is best exemplified by the words of the George Foster Peabody Awards Board of Jurors, which praised the show for “subtly teach[ing] lessons about growing up, accepting responsibility, and becoming who you’re meant to be.” But despite this admiration, not many works of scholarship have looked at the show through a critical lens.

After the success of the Folk Horror in the Twenty First Century conference hosted by Falmouth University, we are holding another related conference in 2021.

 

We are aiming to have a face to face conference at the beautiful Falmouth Campus in Cornwall. With sub-tropical gardens and the beach nearby, there will be a ‘Welcome to Dark Falmouth’ cemetery walk above the lovely Swanpool lake, an art exhibition, a gig and street food in place of the more usual staid conference dinner. If we’re going to beat Covid we want to do it in style!*

This edited collection entitled Servants' Labor in the Making of American Identity and Culture isseeking essays from interested contributors. The study would demonstrate how the labor of foreign and imported domestic servants have contributed to the formation of US citizenship identity. The focus of the collection is twofold: to historicize the master-servant and/or mistress-maid narrative within the discourse of citizenship identity and to engage with literary texts that highlight how the concept of neoliberal citizenship is reliant on extortion of labor of non-citizens, who serve as the maids, nannies, caregivers, and housekeepers, within the domestic terrain.

Willa Cather and Popular Print Culture

updated: 
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 1:12pm
Willa Cather Foundation
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 15, 2021

From Nebraska to Pittsburgh and New York, Willa Cather’s career as a writer was—and has been, even since her death in 1947—inextricably intertwined with various popular print forms. This conference will focus on the intersections of Cather’s life and writings with newspapers and magazines. Cather sometimes disparaged periodicals by hinting to friends and colleagues that she reluctantly published her work in them only to support her more serious writing, yet she understood very well their importance to a writer’s standing in American culture during her lifetime.

Thursday, July 15, 2021

Newton and modern science, especially Mathematics and Physics, have completely changed the concepts of space and movement. Unlike other thinkers of that century, among whom Immanuel Kant stands for his remarkable thought, the new concepts of space and movement don’t seem to have influenced Diderot’s thinking effectively.

Rejoinder Call for Submissions -- Climate in Crisis

Institute for Research on Women, Rutgers University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 6, 2021

“Climate change,” as former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson so astutely notes, “requires a feminist solution.” Global heating is causing rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and the circulation of new pathogens. It impacts economically, socially, and politically marginalized people and communities most severely. Women and children, the majority of the world’s poor, are already disproportionately burdened by its effects. In the Global North, the climate breakdown compounds the environmental racism that many communities of color already experience.

ACLA 2021: Repurposing Enlightenment

updated: 
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 - 1:12pm
ACLA Seminar
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

The Enlightenment has long been understood as a break from past practices and traditions, as a period in which reason, science, progress, secularization were invented. Instead, we seek to understand the Enlightenment and the values identified with it not as rejections of the past or sudden revolutions in thought, but as reconsiderations of earlier ways of knowing. These instances of repurposing include both translations of older sources and traditional thought practices into new contexts as well as the proliferation, amplification, and replication of eighteenth-century ideas.
