Tales of Two Cities: Children’s Literature and (Unequal) Childhoods in New York City

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2017

In 2013, Bill de Blasio’s mayoral campaign ran on the theme of “A Tale of Two Cities.” The narrative that New York is a deeply divided city – one that is simultaneously the world’s capital of finance and culture and an unfortunate model of economic and social inequality – struck a chord with many voters. This panel will examine the ways in which children’s and young adult literature set in New York City expresses, reinforces, confronts and/or overlooks this image of the city as fractured and unequal. Papers may consider questions such as: how does children’s and young adult literature represent (or ignore) the diversity of New York City childhoods?

Uncertain Futures

Canadian Association for American Studies / OCAD University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Uncertain Futures is an interdisciplinary conference hosted by OCAD University and the Canadian Association for American Studies. It will take place at OCAD University, in downtown Toronto, from October 27th to 29th, 2017.

 

In her introduction to The Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K. Le Guin writes that “the future, in fiction, is a metaphor.” In uncertain times, we look to the future as a blank screen for projecting our anxieties about the fraught present and unresolved past. Our fantasies about the future reveal the ideological constructs of our contemporary moment. “Science fiction is not predictive,” Le Guin writes. “It is descriptive.”

Thoreau and Material Culture - gaurenteed session at MLA 2018

How do material objects enrich our understanding of Thoreau’s literary, natural-history, and politically-minded endeavors? How might tangible things deepen our sense of the author’s work, life, and world? What insights can we gain by recovering objects associated with his work, home, and place? The Thoreau Society invites abstracts of 250 words and a brief cv by 1 March 2017: Rochelle Johnson (rjohnson@collegeofidaho.edu).
