Life Narratives: Prismatic World of the Author and Beyond
While the year 2020 is known around the world as a time when everything changed, the year marked an especially different turn for the Asian American community. Many have interpreted the recent waves of shocking racist attacks and anti-Asian sentiments targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities as a direct link to the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. However, in reality, it is critical to understand that the voice of anti-Asian violence and hate is far from being a new concept in America.

For decades, eighteenth-century periodicals have been readily available in countless digital databases--Google Books, the Burney Newspapers Collection, Adam Matthews Eighteenth-Century Journals, Eighteenth- and Nineteenth-Century Collections Online, --simultaneously, feminist literary scholars have been recovering previously ignored eighteenth-century women writers. While scholarly journals and as a result, classrooms, have included more women writers into the literary canon, the critical bias of novels and poetry over periodicals, fiction over nonfiction, remains.
Established in 1989, the Center for Mark Twain Studies “International
Conference on the State of Mark Twain Studies” is the oldest and largest
gathering devoted to all things Twain. During times so turbulent and
uncertain as to require that that the quadrennial conference on the State
of Mark Twain Studies be postponed by a year, the theme of change and
growth “speaks to our condition,” as the Quakers say.
CFP (peer-reviewed journal) Caliban 68 décembre 2022 / December 2022
In his foreword to World Report on Violence and Health, published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2002, Nelson Mandela states that “the twentieth century will be remembered as a century marked by violence” (Krug et.al., 2002, “Foreword”). Now we are nearly at the end of the first quarter of the twenty-first century, but violence still permeates in our lives at various levels. Various forms of violence occurring at levels of interpersonal, self-directed, collective, state, warfare, child and youth violence, intimate partner violence, environmental violence, and animal violence lay bare the complexity and pervasiveness of the phenomenon, yet it also brings along the necessity to discuss violence from multiple perspectives.

The long existing impacts of the U.S.-Mexico border on Indigenous communities have been devastating on those communities physically on the border and for various Indigenous peoples representing many North American and South American nations seeking safety. Papers considering Indigenous transnationality at the border are welcome. A variety of topics and approaches are welcome, such as analyzing texts that address border crossing(s), threats to Indigenous sacred areas, blocked access to sacred spaces and cultural practice, the effects of the Border Patrol on the cultural relationships with community members across the border, and the rhetoric of organizations like the Lipan Apache Women Defense, MMIWG2S awareness groups, the U.N.
Religious fantasy, for a great many readers, is synonymous with Christian fantasy; more specifically, it is understood as literature overtly reproducing biblical narratives within a fantasy world, such as C. S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia. Concurrently, fantasy texts engaging with theology through non-allegorical means that challenge mainstream Christian doctrine are all too often dismissed as disingenuous, offensive or deliberately antagonistic. While this is sometimes the case, such a narrow view of religious fantasy excludes all but the least innovative texts from the genre and leaves little room for authors of other faiths.
Clara Sereni was an innovative writer, a passionate intellectual, and a committed activist, whose literary work and political engagement have left an indelible mark on contemporary Italian literature and society. Her numerous fictional and non-fictional writings bear witness to crucial times in Italian history (Fascism, post-war years, the 1960s and 1970s and the Berlusconi era) while also exploring the intimate struggle for personal independence and self-affirmation of multi-faceted female characters in their roles as daughters, mothers and “handicapped” mothers, workers, activists, politicians, Jews.

In keeping with the symposium theme of "Rebirth Renewal Renaissance," this panel proposes a new look at the works of William Gay. A search of the MLA International Bibliography shows little work on Gay, and that which does exist locuses more on his first two novels (The Long Home and Provinces of Night) and his short fiction. This panel welcomes papers on Gay's later published work, and especially on his work--The Lost Country, Little Sister Death, and Stoneburner--published posthoumously.
