2019 marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of Love in Excess, the still-popular work of fiction that launched the print career of one of the most important authors of the entire eighteenth century. The Early Atlantic Reading Group at Purdue University therefore calls for papers and non-fatal enquiries in celebration of all aspects of Eliza Haywood’s work, career, and world (such expansive topics might include bibliography, women’s book history, theatricals, the Hillarians, or even Haywood and Crusoe—which also marks its 300th birthday in 2019). Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words to Manushag N. Powell (firstname.lastname@example.org) on or before August 20, 2018.

What is left of the AIDS crisis? What remains of the urgency with which critical discourses once contested dominant understandings of “AIDS”? In the first decades of the crisis, vital struggles over the meanings, definitions and representations of AIDS sought to unite cultural analysis with cultural activism. What remains now of such struggles? Has contestation become consensus?

A conference sponsored by the “Uses of Literature” Research Project at the University of Southern Denmark, October 3-4, 2019
What is there left to say about love? Endlessly invoked, celebrated, assailed, abused, and parodied, love has been hailed as the meaning of life and disdained as the ultimate cliché. This conference is inspired by the conviction that love is poised to become a focus of renewed interest in the humanities. We anticipate two main focal points for the conference, without excluding other options.
The CW’s show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has attracted considerable critical acclaim, including creator and star Rachel Bloom’s Golden Globe for Best Actress and Emmy awards for choreography and editing. Because of its female creator, screenwriter, and directors, its hybrid form as a television musical comedy, and its blatant engagement with “sexist term[s]” and mental illness, the show is ripe for feminist media analysis. I seek proposals for papers for an edited collection on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
