ENVIRONMENTS AND SPACES
March 12 & 13, 2021
Sponsored by the English Graduate Student Association at Idaho State University
We are pleased to announce the 2021 Intermountain Graduate Conference. This year we are seeking a variety of papers around the theme “Environments and Spaces,” interpreted and explored broadly across topics and perspectives. The concept of human interactions with our environment(s) appears throughout human history, from the beginning of recorded history to the exploration of outer space and beyond.
Various approaches to our theme mightinclude:
The Department of European Literature at the University of the Republic (Uruguay) announces its 11th International Montevideana Conference, to be held virtually.
It is tempting to think of Boccaccio's most important work in relation to our current times, given that in recent months the Decameron has become a virtual meeting place through rewrites, seminars, and group readings dedicated to the text. The superposition of his pandemic with ours has become, in more than one sense, a paradoxical kind of locus amoenus, adding a new layer to the varied investigations and artistic appropriations that this Italian text has motivated in its 700 years of existence.
This virtual (online) panel seeks papers that explore the imaginary cities built by Latin American literature from the 19th century to the present. Since this year's conference theme is “City of God, City of Destruction,” we are interested in proposals that study both the utopian and dystopian cities that Latin American writers have imagined to place there the collective fears and desires of their societies, as well as all those other fictional cities –neither paradisiacal nor infernal– that have served as microcosms to represent the tensions and conflicts of human comedy.

Narratives and Mental Health offers a forum for dialogue between the arts, humanities and other disciplines interested in mental health and well-being.
Narrative is a central tool for meaning-making. Yet, its relevance has long been side-lined in the mental health sector including psychiatry, clinical psychology, medicine and social work.
Las Vegas, 11/11-14, 2021
Chair: Dr. Ryan Leack, USC
“Rhetoric is a coproductive function of circulation in excess of human intention, which collapses rhetoric and persuasion into the rhetorical, a process of world making that extends relationality into future publics.”
—Byron Hawk, Resounding the Rhetorical (2018)
This panel will explore recent movements in rhetorical theory writ large, either in connection with or apart from composition theory and practice. Special attention will be given to proposals that engage with the conference's theme.

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association (PCA) seeks paper presentations and panels for the annual conference, to be held online from June 2-5, 2021. We are looking for projects that think broadly and diversely about fairy tales throughout the world. This year, we particularly seek papers focused on pedagogical uses of fairy tales at all levels and in all fields, discussions of folkloric shifts from oral to literary to visual (filmic, artistic, etc.) versions of tales, and creative pieces that retell or critique fairy tales or use the tales to comment on some aspect of culture or history.
The year 2020 was an unprecedented year for many. We lived in a world of isolation from friends and family, deprivation of many normal activities (e.g. going out to a restaurant), and the constant state of paralyzing fear of getting sick or worse, watching our loved ones perish from the insidious virus that forced us all into a state of undesired pause. If we could only use one noun to describe the year that was 2020, it would be adversity. Where there is great adversity, there is great opportunity to rise like the mythological phoenix from the ashes to become stronger, greater, and more evolved.

As an increasingly popular genre, true crime has enjoyed a fascinating surge in both academic and cultural interest over the last twenty years. As a relatively new academic discipline, scholars such as Mark Seltzer, David Schmidt, Tanya Horeck, and many others have published ground-breaking studies of the phenomenon of true crime and our various responses to it. However, the gap between popular culture’s interest in true crime and the burgeoning academic discipline remains wide, and True Crime Index invites reviews that seek to close this gap.
