deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 30, 2020

Mark Z. Danielewski’s pentalogy The Familiar, published between 2015 and 2017, is likely the most audacious project in American fiction in the twenty-first century so far. Announced as a set that would eventually encompass 27 novels, the five novels published as the first “season” of the series as a whole have done what readers have come to expect of Danielewski’s work: they once more pushed the limits of what a novel is and can be.

Author as Artist: Creative Contributions in Color / Texture (Creative)

updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2020 - 1:48pm
NeMLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Color and texture are often perceived as “wallpaper” – a humdrum backdrop against which the action of a literary work unfolds. Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s The Yellow Wallpaper; Ntozake Shange’s For Colored Girls…; and Alice Walker’s The Color Purple, among many others, purposely and effectively challenge such perception. This creative session (re)considers the author as artist, (re)casting color and texture as deliberate, meaningful components of literary experience. Open to considering a variety of authors and genres in relation to its theme, this creative session particularly welcomes papers highlighting color and/or texture as relate to either Gilman, or Shange, or Walker.

Undead Voices and Post-perspectives

updated: 
Friday, September 11, 2020 - 12:00pm
North East Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Death is a pervasive and philosophical theme across time and genre. Undead voices have been used for centuries as fictional devices with authority to establish connections between two separate worlds. These voices can have multiple shapes and exist in different society constructs, and can be described as posthuman. On this subject, Rosi Braidotti’s The Posthuman (2013) examines how modern societies have blurred the traditional distinction between the human and its others, exposing the non-naturalistic structure of the human, even in what constitutes death. The undead voices we propose to discuss can be bodiless or have a buried or unburied corpse/body associated with them.
