SURGE: Writing Beyond the Binary

California State University, Dominguez Hills - English Graduate Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 13, 2022

This year’s California State University, Dominguez Hills English Graduate Association Spring Conference theme, SURGE: Writing Beyond The Binary, evokes transcendence of false dichotomy in many realms: gender, politics, race, class, sexuality, emotional well-being, literary criticism, and so much more. As writers, researchers, and scholars, we wield the power to reinforce or dispel reductive binary distinctions in our work, making it our job to SURGE ahead through these and other barriers toward portraying and creating a more inclusive, accepting, understanding world. While we work to re-energize our lives and refill the spaces we re-enter, how we choose to forge ahead will make all the difference.

Novels on the Musical Stage

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 20, 2022

How are novels adapted for onstage presentations as musicals or operas?  Given their large numbers of characters, multiple settings, and large spans of time, the plots of novels need to be adapted to fit within the logistical and chronological realities of live theatre, as compared when novels are adapted for film or video.  Also, how is music used in these adaptations?  We seek proposals that examine how this has been done in the past and is being done now.

Humans live in places, the positions from which they perceive space as a series of landscapes. While space/time is the context that encompasses life and all of its possibilities and constraints, the perception of space is continuously constructed, and deconstructed, through geopolitical, social, and economic—in a word, cultural—drivers. Notions of nature, ecology, resources, and well-being are fundamental dimensions of such a process.

The Working Dead: Capitalism, Mortality, and Their Discontents (panel)

updated: 
Thursday, February 10, 2022 - 12:35pm
Marxist Literary Group - Institute on Culture and Society: Transition
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 13, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic’s disproportionate infection and fatality rates among the working class, coupled with the increasing peril from climate catastrophe, has foregrounded the existential precarity of those on the unfortunate side of the wage relation and empire. This panel considers, however, that in the absence of full human flourishing—in Marx’s word, Gattungswesen—the proletariat is, in a sense, already dead prior to the expiration of their physical bodies.

Monday, August 1, 2022

The 65th American Studies Association of Texas (ASAT) Conference will be held November 2-4, 2022, at Collin College-Frisco, Texas. Our conference theme is “Space & Autonomy.” While scholars and researchers in various disciplines have examined the relationship between space and autonomy for centuries, perhaps millennia, our need to negotiate between these two concepts has never been more pressing: we have had to reconsider our personal and public spaces in the face of a pandemic; we have had to reconceive of the geography of our urban spaces and infrastructure to confront climate change; we have had to maneuver around the constantly shifting political climate in a fractious nation; and we have had to negotiate the ever expanding realm of cyberspace.

As media texts show us superheroes from around the world(s), demonstrating extraordinary abilities and living a life shaped by a moral code, how we define their iconic features and cultural impact has been the focus of much scholarly debate.
