Age, Agency, and Agencies and the Migration of Austrian Children and Youth to the U.S.”

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 31, 2020

Research on immigration to the United States from Austria after the Anschluss has focused exclusively on adults. Moreover, in contrast to the numerous publications and documentaries focusing on the Kindertransport to England before the outbreak of the war in September 1939, there has been limited attention given Austrian children and youth fleeing National Socialism and migrating to the United States. Despite the failure of the Wagner-Rogers Bill in 1939 to admit 20,000 refugee children, a limited number of children and youth immigrated to the United States, some with their parents, some alone, and some with other children. Consequently, their stories remain a largely untapped resource for scholars and this call seeks to address this lacunae.

Friday the 13th Special Issue of Horror Homeroom: Call for Papers

updated: 
Tuesday, December 10, 2019 - 1:45pm
Horror Homeroom
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

Panned by critics during its initial release, Friday the 13th is arguably the quintessential American slasher. With an iconic villain, Jason Voorhees, an instantly identifiable location, Camp Crystal Lake, and a rabid fan base that expresses its adoration for the franchise through everything from clothing to tattoos, its presence in the popular zeitgeist nearly 40 years later speaks to its unique staying power. The film has generated countless sequels, inspired a comic book and a television series, and even resulted in a survival horror video game; yet, there is a surprising dearth of scholarship devoted to the franchise.

Periodicals, Protest, and the South: Periodicals--especially those addressed to regional or other focused communities--have long been credited as potent political forces for organizing social protest movements and collectives.

American Literature Association (ALA) Panel Topic Proposal: Alternative Realities

This panel aims to explore alternative realities or perspectives that can be applied to and appear in American literature.  Through this exploration, it is possible to discover new avenues of discussion and interpretation of popular and/or canonical texts, which in turn allows for deeper cultural and social understanding.  Examining work that literally and figurative create alternative realities illuminates social anxieties, era-tied socio-cultural psyches, and continuing cultural patterns of oppression.

This panel is open to any American text, whether it is literature, graphic fiction, TV, video games and so on.
