We seek proposals from a broad range of disciplinary and theoretical perspectives and welcome the participation of academic and independent scholars.

SANE Journal: Sequential Art Narratives in Education
Call for Papers
Researchers, scholars, librarians, teachers, administrators, specialists, and advanced graduate students are invited to submit works of research, reviews, and rationales. The mission of SANE Journal is to promote research regarding the integration of comic books, graphic novels, or "other" sequential art narratives in educational settings; including the teaching of comics or the ways in which the comics medium can instruct or cause a change in behavior. Manuscripts should be submitted by March, 2019, with an anticipated publication date of July 2019.
Academic Freedom and Academic Lives
The concept of “academic freedom”—always contested—has been muddied, polarized, and done violence to in recent years. This special cluster of Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly invites contributions from a variety of perspectives that seek to illuminate the politics of academic freedom and censorship in the face of rapidly escalating racist, xenophobic, anti-semitic, Islamophobic, sexist, misogynist political currents. Essays connected to personal experience, or that situate questions of academic freedom within the problem of experience as a category of scholarship and public knowledge, are particularly welcome and encouraged.
The William Carlos Williams Society is sponsoring two panels at the ALA convention in Boston on 23-26 May. This call invites teachers and scholars to share their experience of teaching William Carlos Williams and his work in the classroom. The panel will be a round-table discussion featuring 5-6 speakers each of whom would present a short paper (8-10 minutes) as a springboard for a general interactive discussion. The aim is that this panel will form the basis for a subsequent publication on this topic.
Please submit an abstract of 250-300 words and a short bio.
