deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 17, 2021

This proposed "Just-in-time" session at the 2022 MLA Convention in Washington, DC (January 6-9) seeks to situate recent amplifications in anti-Asian violence and rhetoric (as well as the resistance to name them as such) within the context of Asian American literary and cultural production. As the theme of the MLA convention is Multilingualism, this session invites papers on Asian American texts, media and experience that privilege embodied affect or memory as language itself.

Fantasies of the Subject: Affecting Selves in Contemporary American Literature

 

edited by Paula Barba Guerrero & Laura de la Parra Fernández

 

If what we need to dream, to move our spirits most deeply and directly towards and through promise, is discounted as a luxury, then we give up the core —the fountain— of our power [...] we give up the future of our worlds.

 

—Audre Lorde, “Poetry Is Not a Luxury”

In their reflection or refraction of the world, television series seem to affect the perceptions of those who watch them, whether they represent ultra-contemporary ripped-from-the-headline events or historical events, either opening up closed social worlds or offering dystopian scripts in uchronic or alternate worlds as in the real world, political and environmental crises loom large.

Literary multilingualism studies is a relatively new but burgeoning area of research.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

The 2022 Call for the Queer Caucus is centering on topics surrounding queerness and the body: the effects of the Pandemic. The call wants to ask questions like "How has the queer community experience the devastating and last effects that have arisen out of pandemics?" "What happens with the lost of queer geography?" This call also seeks papers that explore how the queer community has continued to find creative ways to maintain communities, connections, and support when their physical spaces, their livelihoods, and their health have been threathened. How do you find community, other queer bodies? The recent closure of gay bars has also taken a toll and what does this mean for the future?

Networks of Song and Story: Convent and Community in Medieval France

updated: 
Friday, September 10, 2021 - 1:22pm
A Special Session at ICMS, Kalamazoo 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 15, 2021

This session adopts an interdisciplinary approach to women’s communities centered at French religious houses, and interprets creative, devotional, and other kinds of output inspired by these institutional contexts. How did music, art, liturgies, and literature figure in representations and articulations of these women’s voices? We consider how such works created networks among writers, readers, and performers, and we investigate how convents, functioning as inspiration and narrative loci, shaped lyric and text. We aim to newly demonstrate how particular institutional contexts framed gendered expression and communal life, and how particular works reflected and fashioned women’s voices, within and beyond convent walls.
