Their work sheds light across a vast spectrum of themes such as inquiries of history and memory, denunciation of dictatorships, condemnation of violence against minorities and the environment, and exploration of female sexuality.

Update: Literary Monsters - SAMLA - November 13-15, 2020

updated: 
Tuesday, May 5, 2020 - 12:05pm
Tracie Provost / Middle Georgia State University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 22, 2020

In today's culture, it's almost impossible to avoid "monsters."  Straight from mythology and legend, these fantastic creatures traipse across our television screens and the pages of our books.  Over centuries and across cultures, the inhuman have represented numerous cultural fears and, in more recent times, desires. They are Other. They are Us. This panel will explore the literal monsters--whether they be mythological, extraterrestrial, or man-made--that populate fiction and film, delving into the cultural, psychological and/or theoretical implications. 

 

Update: Speculative Fiction - SAMLA - November 13-15, 2020

updated: 
Tuesday, May 5, 2020 - 12:05pm
Mert Gareis / Middle Georgia State University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 22, 2020

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under the category is that there is some “unrealistic” element, whether it’s magical, supernatural, or a futuristic/technological development: works that fall into the category stray from conventional realism in some way.   For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from China Miéville to Margaret Atwood to Philip K. Dick. This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more.

It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what descriptions describe descriptions, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories.

"Digital Expressions Of The Self"

Monday, April 27, 2020 - 1:24pm
National Institute Of Technology, Silchar
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 22, 2020

The National institute of Technology, Silchar is organizing a symposium on ''Digital Expressions of the Self'' during 7-8 Dec 2020. We are interested in how people experiment with creative expressions of the self. Constructing the self in the digital sphere may involve processes of experimentation that in turn allow one to experience the self in multiple ways. This is mediated of course by the apparatus of the digital-codes and algorithms. We are interested in the nuances of these processes and the aesthetics of the expressions. The deadline for abstract submission is 22 May. Details available here:

MMLA 2020 Popular Culture Permanent Session CFP: Fan Responses to Popular Culture (deadline extended to May 31))

updated: 
Friday, April 24, 2020 - 5:46pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 31, 2020

Due to the current circumstances, the deadline for submitting a paper for this panel has been extended to May 31.

Last year, when Fox canceled the television show Lucifer, a fan campaign to save the show resulted in Netflix picking it up for another season. This was not an isolated incident. Collectives of fans, gathering both online and in person, often influence the longevity, the content, the dispersal, and the afterlife of their favorite shows, games, songs, and other popular culture artifacts. In response to the conference theme “Cultures of Collectivity,” the popular culture permanent session invites papers that investigate how both planned and spontaneous groups appropriate or influence popular culture.
