updated: 
Monday, May 23, 2022 - 5:36am
Universität Heidelberg
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

The aim of this conference is to situate the rise of the Far-Right in conjunction with academic spaces and practices i.e., to understand the macroscopic role Academia has in producing, challenging, and responding to the proliferation of this adaptive ideology. How do scholarly practices and the Far-right interact? How do Far-right governments impact Academia, both nationally and globally? Why are Academia’s responses to and/or co-options by the Far-right so culturally impactful?

Women Writing Syria: Resilience, Solidarity, Movement

Call for Submissions

How do Syrian women writers, poets and artists imagine Syria, both before and after the revolution and war? Can we imagine Syria without war? Can Syria – as a site that is at once shared, divided and contested – inspire us to bring it into being through creative writing and arts? Could we make this imagined Syria a concrete reality? How can Syrian women’s narratives and voices be heard?

We invite contributions from Syrian women writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, playwrights and cross-genre writers writing in English, Arabic and Turkish for the forthcoming anthology Women Writing Syria. Visuals by artists are also welcome.

Cultural Representations of the Region in Transnational Contexts, c. 1840-1940

updated: 
Tuesday, May 17, 2022 - 6:59am
Radboud University, Department of Modern Languages and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

The nineteenth century witnessed an upsurge of representations of the region across Europe and North America, in media ranging from literary fiction to the illustrated periodical and from visual arts to architecture. The rise of regionalism has often been linked to nationalism and nation-building. As such, the transnational dimensions of regionalism—in its themes as well as publication and circulation—are frequently overlooked. These transnational aspects are the focus of the Dutch Research Council-funded project Redefining the Region at Radboud University, which considers representations of the region in literature and illustrated periodicals during the long nineteenth century.

SAMLA African American Literature Panel

Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:14pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 25, 2022

This traditional session welcomes submission on any aspect of African American Literature that attends to how black writers use literature to bring out discussion on climate injustice. With the conference theme of "change," readers of African American Literature often miss the criticism of climatic injustice that is present in much literary work, especially of 20th Century Black writers. From Zora Hurston, to Richard Wright, to Jean Toomer, etc., there are many instances of a critique of climatic injustices that are often either misread or simply glossed over. This panel aims to reconsider black writers as the leading figures in both ecocriticism and ecofeminism.

Monday, July 25, 2022

Since the emergence of Asian American Studies as an intellectual field of studies almost 60 years ago, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies has not only evolved as a whole but has also had to endure ongoing changes and readaptations. Now, perhaps more than ever, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies calls for new changes or perhaps even a new vision, to help us cope with the many living realities and meanings—whether racially, culturally, historically, or politically, just to name a few—on which we stand.

+++EXTENDED DEADLINE+++++Whether Poe was correct in asserting that “The death of a beautiful woman is, unquestionably, the most poetical topic in the world,” he certainly was correct in associating her demise, mythical or otherwise, with the generation of art.  This special session for PAMLA 2022 invites papers that consider the significance of representations of death in modern popular culture.  Papers may engage the following questions or consider the topic from other directions.  How does the gendered and raced association of death with femininity produce normative masculinity?  In what ways does the overdetermined association between women and mortality stabilize concepts of geography, including nation?  Can we even imagine “America” without the quoti

The Comparative Literature section of the MMLA invites proposals for papers that engage with any aspect of this year's conference theme, "Post-Now." Building on the conference CFP's proposal to discuss the role of humanities in imagining a different future, this section asks these corollary questions: What is the role of comparative literature in these changing times? How can comparative perspectives and critical theory confront the most critical challenges in the 21st century? How should we imagine our roles as teachers and scholars of comparative literature when national and ethical boundaries are being deconstructed and reconstructed?
