California has been transnational since the moment of colonial encounter from which it acquired its name – borrowed by Spanish explorers from a work of contemporary fiction and imposed upon a place (indeed, multiple places) long known to indigenous peoples by other words. Since that time, California has been defined by further transnational encounters, exchanges, and conflicts – as a site of cross-cultural communication where borders often characterise experience but equally often prove to be porous and mutable.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

"W(h)ither the Christian Right?” Papers are invited for a Post45 Contemporaries cluster on the U.S. Christian Right and literature. Recent evidence suggests the evangelical share of the population may be decreasing, but its political power so far has not waned and it is geared for apocalyptic combat. Momentarily defeated but unbowed like their champion President Trump, conservative white Christians have not received much attention in literary studies.

Ultimately, Unsettling Poetry Pedagogy seeks to put antiracist teaching and research directly in conversation with each other, offering productive, tangible ways for poetry classrooms to confront social injustice.

deadline for submissions:

Asian American immigrants’ heterogeneity in their countries of departure, race, ethnicity, and class characterizes different immigrant experiences -- ranging from “voluntary” immigration to dislocation directly caused by wars and imperialism. What is the role of literature in preserving the history of their movements? How does literature reimagine the history of these marginalized subjects? What is the significance of narrating Asian American immigration history through literary forms? What do the stories of these subjects -- immigrants, refugees, undocumented immigrants, elite cosmopolitan, and many more -- suggest the meaning of belonging in the Americas?
