Many academic institutions have been evaluating their diversity and inclusion statements. At the department level, several faculty members recognize that their curriculum also needs to be evaluated.  

We are particularly interested in proposals for full traditional panels including at least four presenters, roundtables of six to eight speakers, workshops, individual papers, posters, and presentations that consider the following questions for the profession, for the discipline, for our areas of specialization, and for the larger society:

California has been transnational since the moment of colonial encounter from which it acquired its name – borrowed by Spanish explorers from a work of contemporary fiction and imposed upon a place (indeed, multiple places) long known to indigenous peoples by other words. Since that time, California has been defined by further transnational encounters, exchanges, and conflicts – as a site of cross-cultural communication where borders often characterise experience but equally often prove to be porous and mutable.

As of March 2021, a year after the United States first entered nation-wide lockdowns in response to the global spread of COVID-19, the National Center for Health Statistics reported a 30% increase in drug overdose deaths across the country. Antidepressant, anti-anxiety, and insomnia prescriptions have also hit record highs. Now public health bodies are embarking on the most ambitious vaccination campaign in US history. Living through the chronic sequelae of these interlocking (and still unfolding) crises is bearable only by recourse to a pharmaceutical fix.

Anthem Series on Exploitation and Industry in World Cinema (Book Series)

updated: 
Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 10:56am
David A. Cook and Will Dodson, UNC Greensboro
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

The Anthem Series on Exploitation and Industry in World Cinema incorporates a broad range of scholarship on filmmakers, genres, cycles and national cinemas, focusing on ways in which exploitation filmmaking and distribution subsidize riskier commercial or “art cinema” work. Titles in this series focus on a single exploitation filmmaker/producer/distributor, an exploitation genre/cycle or the exploitation component of a national cinema. The series considers new and fuller understandings of the interdependent development of exploitation, commercial and arthouse cinema as technology enables new cultures of audience reception.

Open deadline for monograph and edited collection proposals.

CALL FOR PAPERS: “We’re Going Virtual”: A Children’s Literature Association Quarterly Special Issue

Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 9:06am

Tuesday, November 1, 2022

The concept of virtual worlds, while not new, has become a normalized part of 21st-century consciousness in the wake of the worldwide novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Once a realm reserved for playful escape, “dissolv[ing] the constraints of the anchored world so that we can lift anchor—not to drift aimlessly without point, but to explore anchorage in ever-new places” (Heim, 1993), virtual spaces have taken center stage in our everyday lives. Our meeting places, our workplaces, our places of learning, even the places where we unite to break bread have shifted from the physical realm to the virtual.

Wednesday, December 15, 2021

From the global to the individual level, our sense of community has undergone a profound transformation within just a couple years. Where it once suggested closeness and intimacy, community now paradoxically demands that we maintain a healthy distance from one another—each one of us a monad tucked away in our respective homes, our old sources of community displaced as they transition to virtual formats. We even maintain patterns of disciplined isolation to protect the health and safety of those whom we would otherwise not need to consider.

Women’s Life Writing in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe/ Literatură auto/biografică feminină în Europa de Est şi de Sud-Est/ Récit de vie féminin dans l’Europe de l’Est et du Sud-Est

Laura Cernat (KU Leuven)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 10, 2022

In the form of memoirs, autobiographies, diaries or correspondence, or given a literary spin as autofiction and biofiction, the experiences of East and South-East European women during wartimes and under the oppressive regimes of the twentieth century (a period laden with contrasts, which in the West was hailed as “acentury of women”, Rowbotham 1997, but also framed as an “age of testimony”, Felman and Laub 1992) have been surfacing in the past two decades. The transmission of these narratives followed sinuous paths, taking both verbal and non-verbal forms, relying on both “filial” and “affiliative” networks (Hirsch 2012), and coming from both female victims and female perpetrators (Schwab 2010).
