Call for Chapters- Pastoral and Anti-Pastoral: Exploring the Representation of City and the Village in Literature ( DEADLINE EXTENDED to 15 May 2021)

Saturday, May 15, 2021

The Twentieth century saw the rapid development of the city and its impact on the socio-cultural fabric of nations manifested in the social and cultural ways of living. The city came to be represented as an urban wasteland and the loss and moving away from the pastoral was eulogised in many texts. These texts looked into the anonymity of the individual in the milieu of the city where the older closed bonds of the familiar rural community got replaced by the unfamiliar existence. The village was seen as an idyllic space nurturing the humans towards an organic and symbiotic coexistence and ways of living.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 18, 2021

The Banshee is the leading magazine for women who scream.*

It is a journal for women who scream, by women who scream, about women who scream, and about screaming in all its forms. Screams of laughter; screams of rage, fear, and delight. A journal for supernatural yelllers, emphatic prophets of doom, and all those who adhere to the Japanese theme-park credo in this time of respiratory pandemic: please scream inside your hearts.

 

If you scream inside your heart, or anywhere else, please write for The Banshee.

 

Women in the World: Shaping Identity Through Objects and Space

In texts representing women and their lives, the physical spaces and items a woman has access to or desires, are often indicative of her social position, emotions, and/or psychological state. In the well-known example of Samuel Richardson’s Pamela for instance, owning and being able to wear her mistress’ clothes is an indication that Pamela is socially higher than the other servants in the household. Her access to these clothes is also read (by those around her) as a sign that she is morally compromised; she in turn sees this access as part of her suffering.

MMLA Writing Across the Curriculum

Alejandra Ortega / MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, May 1, 2021

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2021 conference theme is “Cultures of Collectivity.” The conference will take place November 4-7 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The Writing Across the Curriculum permanent session will explore this theme by considering how writing pedagogy can encourage students to make connections between their sense of self and the community at large. Academia is rarely limited to the space of the classroom. Often lines between the individual student, the university space, and the local community blur to facilitate a deeper engagement with learning.

Topics might include, but are not limited to:

The Politics of Food in the United States

Wednesday, June 30, 2021

Food in the United States is framed by myths and stereotypes. The myth of America as a land of plenty, embodied by the “first” Thanksgiving, is far from the reality the first settlers encountered, and creates an image of harmonious relations between Native Americans and New England colonists that belies the violence of colonization. Today, the image of the “fast food nation” masks the diversity of local cuisines and the rich history of food and foodways in the US.
