American Literature Association Conference, San Diego, CA, May 21-24, 2020

 

In college-level American literature anthologies, Louisa May Alcott enjoys an eclectic reputation. Her writings may appear in context with those of other Civil War or Realist writers or be catalogued as Transcendentalist works. Alternately, they can be regarded as Local Color or Regional writings, or considered in connection with the Gothic or with American Romanticism.

Call for Abstracts - Edited Collection on Father Figures in Children’s Animated/Cartoon TV Shows


 

“The handy thing about being a father is that the historic standard is so pitifully low.”
- Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize Winner


 

The trope of the “hapless dad,” clumsy and useless with his own children, appears in storytelling across several mediums—especially in animated kids’ cartoons on TV. For many contemporary kids’ shows, however, this trope appears less pronounced. These shows often showcase masculine parental figures as kind, emotionally intelligent, and nurturing to children, normalizing childrearing is more than just "women's work."

“Over the Horizon: Comparative Perspectives on Literature” International Conference

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:56pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 31, 2019

As Sarah Lawall stated in her essay, the world-literature perspective is not one, but multiple. By looking at literature comparatively, we can enrich our understanding of the historical and cultural context of the literary works, to look over the horizon of our own tradition and to see how cultures interact.The conference will consider the theory and the practice of comparative literature and will discuss the transformations and travels of literary genres and texts across time and space. It will explore the connections of literature with history, philosophy, politics, and literary theory, and study the intersections of literature with other cultural forms such as film, visual arts, music and media.Topics may include, but are not limited to:

International Conference on Children's Studies

Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:56pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 20, 2019

Childhood is a crucial stage in the formation of personality, value orientations, self-image and ideas about the world. However, the subject of childhood has become the target of research relatively recently. A wide range of problems and an interdisciplinary approach to this phenomenon have extended the boundaries of the academic and professional research interests. Nowadays, the study of children and childhood is an integral part of the humanities and social sciences. We invite psychologists, educators, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural and literary scholars, historians, art experts, lawyers, linguists and specialists in other fields to participate in the conference.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:
