Nature and Overnature in SF and Fantasy Discourses

 

Science Fiction and Fantasy are lasting fields of inquiring into today’s world. They have become privileged means to question issues of aesthetic, ethical, political, social, economic, environmental and historical nature with high impact on contemporary societies. They have promoted hot-button issues and rich critical debates in literature as well as in cinema, TV, and videogames among other media.

Community engagement and service learning are long-standing high-impact educational practices that have demonstrated value for students, faculty, higher education institutions, community organizations, states, regions, and nations. The societal focus on social justice movements, public health and the pandemic, and environmental issues has created unprecedented opportunities for engaging undergraduates in community-based research. These developments have highlighted community needs for certain types of data and projects as well as nurtured new forms of community engagement such as social entrepreneurship.

PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

The PAMLA 2021 Travel and Literature session welcomes proposals focused on travel, odyssey, and mobility through literary lenses as broadly conceived, with special interest in movement through city spaces. Since this year’s conference theme is “City of God, City of Destruction,” we are particularly interested in essays that consider the ways in which literary works address the city as a site for spiritual exploration, identity loss, or renewal for characters who travel to, from, or through urban spaces. How does travel or movement through city spaces address issues of identity, perception, or power?

Literary Urban Studies and Climate Futures (MLA 2022)

updated: 
Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 12:07pm
Association for Literary Urban Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 20, 2021

This panel gathers papers that consider how literary urban studies might contribute to interdisciplinary scholarship on questions of equity, justice, and the material transformation of cities in the context of climate change, as they are expressed in the literature of any region worldwide or historical period. All cities are in the process of being unevenly and variously transformed by climate change. The World Bank estimates that Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, and Southeast Asia alone will generate 143 million climate migrants by 2050. Some global cities will dramatically expand to accommodate large populations of migrants.

Disability, Race, and the Politics of Care (MLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, February 19, 2021 - 11:17am
Davy Knittle, University of Pennsylvania and Declan Gould, Temple University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 10, 2021

This panel gathers papers that consider relational models of disability and histories of systemic racism in the U.S. to read quotidian practices of care. We situate care across scales, as we ask how care relationships between individuals are embedded in larger practices of identifying and resisting racialized harm in contexts including medical access, environmental racism, housing inequality, and economic justice. How, as disability and race scholars, can we consider individual and everyday acts of care as sites at which to identify and resist structural conditions of ableist, racialized physical and psychological harm and reimagine the dynamics of vulnerability and difference?
