Publicly available text-generating engines like ChatGPT make large language models (LLMs) “writers” in their own right. How can we interpret the changing status of the writer in the age of machine learning? What does the success of AI-generated textuality ask us to reconsider, revisit, or reinvent in the context of literary theory and the digital humanities more generally?

Catherine Bush’s 2019 novel Blaze Island opens with the following epigraph from Elena Ferrante: “Pressing changes are underway. Everything is becoming something else, unpredictably. A completely new outlook is required. The challenge now and for the foreseeable future is to extract ourselves from what men have engineered, a planet long on the edge of catastrophe.” Throughout the novel, Bush underscores the importance of thinking critically about boundaries, specifically those of gender and geography, as she reworks Shakespeare’s The Tempest to particularly Atlantic Canadian purposes.

Amidst a growing insistence on disability futures, this panel centers the future of feminist disability scholarship. Taking up the conference sub-theme of Revisiting, Reclaiming & Re-imagining, panelists propose new directions for feminist disability thought not by looking forward, but through a transformative turn to alternative pasts. Recent critical disability scholarship reimagines the field’s scholarly origins and objects, including Sami Schalk and Jina B. Kim’s call for feminist-of-color disability studies and the Crip Genealogies edited volume. This panel foregrounds this twinned intervention in field-narration and analytic objects--insisting that both are necessary for transformative feminist disability thought.
Proposals for presentations on travel writing in English from any period or part of the world. Please submit a 200-word abstract by April 1, 2023. The RMMLA conference will be held in Denver, CO, from Oct. 11-14, 2023.
Chapter proposals are sought for a volume of critical essays on Thomas Hardy's Tess of the d'Urbervilles. Proposed chapters should ideally also connect to contemporary lives of the play, adaptations, influence on later works, translations, and/or connections with cultural studies' paradigms. The target readership for the volume includes teachers/instructrors, and students, which should bear upon the accessibility and adaptability of the essays themselves.

Trans- is powerful: attaching itself to concepts, it challenges supposedly settled knowledge about the world we live in. In FORUM’s 34th issue, this destabilisation becomes central. We draw attention to the importance the prefix ‘trans-’ has acquired in recent decades as an index of movement, crossing, and shifting – and we are interested in your approaches to all that trans- has to offer, as both description and method: transnationality, translation, transdisciplinary, transgender…

There is a common adage that labour is invisible in Victorian literature. From Bruce Robbins’s discussion of the servant’s spectral “hand” to Carolyn Lesjak’s claim that labour is often hidden in the Victorian novel, scholars have often asserted that labour is rarely made visible. Yet, in the Victorian period itself, as Tim Barringer suggests, certain types of labour were made increasingly visible through aesthetic means. Whether it was paintings of farmers and other agricultural workers, Ford Madox Brown’s painting “Work,” or the Great Exhibition “of the Works of Industry of All Nations,” where audiences watched printmakers and seamstresses create new pieces and engineers fine-tune machines, labour was something highly visualized.

CFP: Robert Graves and The ‘60s: “All You Need is Love”?
British writer Robert Graves (1895-1985) associated with multiple counterculture movements, including the modernist vanguard and anti-war poets, made forays into Eastern mysticism, reimagined the Classical period, contemporized ancient myths and rituals, experimented with hallucinogens, and managed to publish over 140 books, including what some might term his magnum opus, The White Goddess, an encyclopedic work he subtitled “A historic grammar of poetic myth.” Above all else, he is remembered as a poet of Love, exploring the subject across his long career in its many iterations: romantic, allegorical, ritualistic, the literary—the coupling of Poet and Muse.
Interfused: imagination, faith and reason in Romantic writers
The period in European and anglophone literature from the late eighteenth century to the mid-nineteenth known as Romantic had a number of characteristics and, although there was reaction from Enlightenment thinking, some long established threads endured. For the conference we look for associations with Christian and Biblical themes in literary texts. Papers will have a reading time of 20 minutes. Fuller details are on the conference page of the CLSG website.
