Ghosts and Memory

Tuesday, November 5, 2019 - 5:01pm
Far West Popular Culture Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 12, 2019

I am seeking 20 minute paper proposals for a panel that considers the various literary uses and conceptions of ghosts as a mode of memory, projection, history, trauma, and reconciliation/redemption. Part of the foundational premise of the ghost story is a disturbance in the present that comes from the past; an unsettling interaction between mind and matter, memory and perception, the living and the dead. All paper proposals that consider these aspects of ghost stories (as literature/writing) are welcome.

The Far West Popular Culture Association will be held on February 22-24, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Palace Station Hotel/Casino.

Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief bio to:

London Rising: Struggle, Rebellion, and Revolution

’Cause in London Town

There’s just no place for a street fighting man

—The Rolling Stones, 1968 


Mick Jagger’s words above can sometimes feel axiomatic.  London has an outwardly less impressive revolutionary tradition to call upon than many of its closest neighbours, most obviously Paris.  This is to say, of course, that history is political: if the past seems quiet, what hope for remaking the future?   


London Rising is interested in redeeming the capital’s radical past whilst insisting upon the revolutionary potential of the present.  Our aim is to collectively describe a continuum of tumult in London, attuned to the struggle between conflicting forces.
