March 11-14, 2021 / Philadelphia, PA
In light of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and public debate about who or what kind of work is deemed “essential,” this panel seeks to examine the intersection of literature and labor, prioritizing depictions of precarious workers who are sacrificing their personal well-being for the public good, but also to maintain their own economic security.
CALL FOR PAPERS
ASKHISTORIANS 2020 DIGITAL CONFERENCE
“BUSINESS AS UNUSUAL: HISTORIES OF RUPTURE, CHAOS, REVOLUTION, AND CHANGE”
Scholars working in queer studies, both in and out of academia, are still often marginalized; one of the aspects of this marginalization is the lack of publishing venues, which discourages potentially original and creative researchers from pursuing their interest in queer studies, and from contributing to the development of the field. This has a negative impact on both the queer studies community, and on scholarly, social, and political discourse in general.
The Mandalorian explicitly interacts with the Western genre, setting up a story of a single gunfighter standing against enemies to protect the innocent. The theme of the 2020 Western Literature Association conference is graphic wests, which lends itself well to a panel focused on the Disney+ series.
The conference itself will be held virtually, and the organizers seek a variety of panel types. Individuals interested in being part of a panel focused on The Mandalorian should submit 100-200 word proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 5. Responses will be sent by July 10.
Below is the full CFP for the conference. It includes details about the panel types accepted.
