As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report concludes, our planet’s landscapes are rapidly undergoing drastic short-term transformative changes due to anthropogenic factors. The wholesale thawing of Arctic permafrost stands to exacerbate planetary warming to runaway levels (p. 1270); droughts in arid areas are massively exacerbated by agricultural activity (p. 1984); greenhouse gas emissions disrupt natural weather systems so greatly that new microclimates emerge (p. 3514); ocean acidification threatens the viability of aquatic ecosystems (p. 1200); biodiversity is in rapid decline around the globe (p. 211); sea level rise will reclaim vast areas of low-lying land (p.

Infrastructure and Aesthetics in the Global South (ASLE 2022)

updated: 
Thursday, December 30, 2021 - 11:08am
Rebecca Oh / ASLE 2022 (Association for the Study of Literature and Environment)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 11, 2022

This session seeks papers that attend to the affordances of infrastructure for aesthetics and of aesthetics for infrastructure in postcolonial/global South literature. We aim to explore infrastructure's own aesthetic capacities, the ways in which built forms and their materials produce specific aesthetic effects and social uses, or the ways in which infrastructure makes aesthetic perception available to social practice. In turn we are interested in the way aesthetic qualities like form, genre, reception, plot, narrative, or medium are themselves infrastructural and shape encounters with infrastructure.

Poetics of Travelling Self: Discursive Formations and Purposiveness of Travel

updated: 
Monday, December 27, 2021 - 1:22am
Language, Literature, and Interdisciplinary Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

The heterogenous character of protean form of travel writing—letters, journals, logbooks, diaries, memoir, journalistic pieces, guidebooks, confessional narratives, accounts of seafaring voyages, literary picaresque narratives, scientific explorations, artists’ escapades, ventures of urban flâneurs, self-exiled wanderers, and fiction—resists easy demarcation. Its heterogeneity lies in the revisionary stance brought about in each narrative through the distinguishing figure of the traveller, mode of narration, means of mapping, or redefining of the landscape.

Crisis in Contemporary British Fiction (edited volume)

updated: 
Sunday, December 19, 2021 - 11:35am
Anastasia Logotheti
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 31, 2022

This collection of critical essays explores how contemporary British authors engage with the theme of crisis in their fiction (as apparent in novels and short stories by Julian Barnes, A S Byatt, Graham Swift, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, Pat Barker, Martin Amis, among others.)

‘Crisis’ can be investigated not only as informing any aspect of fiction involving sociopolitical and cultural systems, but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representationacross narrative traditions.

Submissions should focus on one or more of the aforementioned major contemporary British authors (though you are welcome to propose additional British authors who explore the theme of crisis).

Crashing the Canon: A Spotlight for the Underrepresented in Higher Education

updated: 
Friday, December 17, 2021 - 11:31am
The Humanities Review / St. John's University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 22, 2021

When we think of the western literary canon, we tend to think of the famous authors and works that have shaped our literary and scholarly culture into what it is today: Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Dickens, Twain, Whitman, and the list goes on and on. But In our age of cultural and technological advancement, we believe that the bodies of works we consider worthy of study should also reflect the current world around us. Thus, the goal of this issue of The Humanities Review is to shine a spotlight on those authors, works, and platforms which have not yet found a home in the literary/academic canon, but still merit the kind of close literary analysis afforded to the canon.

The Willa Cather Foundation will sponsor two separate panels at the American Literature Association’s 33rd Annual Conference, to be held in Chicago, IL May 26-29, 2022.

Cather and Her Contemporaries: As the publication of her letters has demonstrated, Willa Cather had personal, aesthetic, philosophical, and social ties with a wide range of writers, artists, musicians, and public figures. What’s more, her fiction, nonfiction, and poetry were sites of engagement where many of these connections were both widened and deepened. The Willa Cather Foundation seeks paper proposals that pursue a richer understanding of Cather’s connections with her contemporaries, including but not limited to:

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.
