Gone But Not Quite Forgotten: Recovering Lost Writers and Texts

updated: 
Tuesday, February 15, 2022 - 3:42pm
Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 1, 2022

The Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) invites proposals from faculty members, graduate students, and independent scholars for its 2022 Annual Conference on the theme of recovering lost writers and lost texts. We are especially interested in recovering marginalized voices, finding reasons for their disappearance, and charting a path to bring their writing and lives back into the light of current scholarship. Lost or forgotten work by canonical authors would also be welcome subjects of literary inquiry as part of this call, as would be papers that trace the evolution of a literary text from manuscript to magazine publication to book form if the changes are radical.

(UPDATED) Edited volume: Narratives of Gendered Abuse in Academia

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

While the #MeToo movement as a cultural, feminist, and antiracist force has been slowly and steadily uncovering and altering landscapes of gendered harassment and abuse across our society, academia itself as an abusive culture has remained fairly immune to these critiques. Recent events at Harvard, where senior scholars immediately lined up in support of a colleague accused of habitually harassing students, only to withdraw that support later, are sadly typical of the kneejerk defense of institutions and disregard for victims that characterize such cases. Scholars such as Sarah Ahmed have forcefully critiqued academic culture, helping us begin to theorize its endemic harassment and abuse.

Reconfiguring Digital Spaces: GLO Conference 2022

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we have become painfully aware of how highly dependent we are on networked computers in most facets of our everyday lives. Shuffling from Zoomiverse to Metaverse and everything in between, computers remain the focal point of interactivity in life, entertainment, scholarship, and labor as in-person activities become increasingly constricted. Alternatives must be found; and even though dreams of totally transferring consciousnesses to digital avatars remain deeply rooted in the literary cyberpunk imaginaries of the 1980s and 90s, the pandemic brings us closer to realizing them in surprising ways.

Candyman: The Whole Damn Swarm

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 8, 2022

30 years ago, Polygram Filmed Entertainment released Candyman, a film loosely adapted from Clive Barker’s short story “The Forbidden”. Unlike Barker’s original text, this Candyman was set in Chicago, specifically the urban ghetto Cabrini Green, and seemed to focus on the tragedy of a Black artist who vengefully returns as a violent ghost after his brutal lynching. The film and its ideologies were complicated. Innovative in its starting point – a story of profound Black suffering which called attention to the racial injustice underpinning US society – audiences were also given a tale which reiterated ideas of Black monstrosity and illogical interracial violence.

The Working Dead: Capitalism, Mortality, and Their Discontents (panel)

updated: 
Thursday, February 10, 2022 - 12:35pm
Marxist Literary Group - Institute on Culture and Society: Transition
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 13, 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic’s disproportionate infection and fatality rates among the working class, coupled with the increasing peril from climate catastrophe, has foregrounded the existential precarity of those on the unfortunate side of the wage relation and empire. This panel considers, however, that in the absence of full human flourishing—in Marx’s word, Gattungswesen—the proletariat is, in a sense, already dead prior to the expiration of their physical bodies.

Monday, August 1, 2022

The 65th American Studies Association of Texas (ASAT) Conference will be held November 2-4, 2022, at Collin College-Frisco, Texas. Our conference theme is “Space & Autonomy.” While scholars and researchers in various disciplines have examined the relationship between space and autonomy for centuries, perhaps millennia, our need to negotiate between these two concepts has never been more pressing: we have had to reconsider our personal and public spaces in the face of a pandemic; we have had to reconceive of the geography of our urban spaces and infrastructure to confront climate change; we have had to maneuver around the constantly shifting political climate in a fractious nation; and we have had to negotiate the ever expanding realm of cyberspace.
