Greetings all,

For this special issue of The CEA Critic, we seek essays that examine various obstacles to student learning in higher education. To be clear: we are not interested in essays that deal with teaching in the time of COVID per se—our special 2020 COVID issue took on that subject. Rather, now that the end of COVID seems not far off, what other obstacles are inhibiting the success of students?

In addition to the overall conference theme of “Politics of Protest,” the SCMLA African American Literature Regular Session encourages students, researchers, and scholars to submit presentations that explore the Legacy of Toni Morrison. As the author of eleven novels, five children's books, two plays, and nine non-fiction texts, Morrison stands tall as one of the most well-known, well-read, and often-taught authors of the twentieth (and 21st) century.

The eruption of anti-racist movements in the public discourse over the past ten years, both in Italy, France, and in a broader context within Western Europe, has incited a re-engagement with the colonial histories of western countriesas well as their current racist and anti- immigration policies. The voices that emerged (with public figures such asAssa Traoré in France, Fabrice Vil in Québec, and Rula Jebréal in Italy) all encourage the general public to reflect onthe ways in which institutions need to be destabilized in order to make progress in terms of racial equality and criminal justice reform. In the wake of heightened social outrage around the globe, we are requesting proposals for papers which address issues of social justice and activism in Franc

Literature and Cognitive Science

PAMLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 30, 2021

This panel invites papers exploring new subjects and approaches in the field of cognitive literary studies and, especially, cognitive poetics. We are interested in investigations of both the formal and the cultural/historical convergence of literary and cognitive research. What poems, novels, stories, etc. could be newly read and understood with the aid of insights and frameworks borrowed from such disciplines as experimental psychology and neuroscience? But also, why is it that literary scholars can turn to cognitive theories as plausible hermeneutical models in the first place? Where does the resonance between the concerns of writers and scientists, which today we seem to take for granted, come from?

Work may either be published or works-in-progress.

If interested, please submit the title of the essay, a brief abstract (approximately 50 words), and a longer proposal (approximately 500 words) by June 30, or when the session fills, whichever comes first to PAMLA's Online Proposal Submission Form at:

Playing on the SAMLA 93 conference theme of “Social Networks and Social Distance,” the Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on topics relevant to questions and issues of Southern networks and distance. A region often rendered into a single, monolithic entity, the South as articulated in various literatures rests at intersections of global politics, culture, economy, and history, which are often overlooked in traditional Southern studies.
