ENVIRONMENTS AND SPACES

March 12 & 13, 2021

 

LOCATION: Online

 

TIMES: TBA

 

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:

Interpretations, Appropriations, and Rewritings of Giovanni Boccaccio

updated: 
Thursday, January 28, 2021 - 11:50am
11th International Montevideana Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 1, 2021

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.

PAMLA Online Panel: Latin American Imaginary Cities

Thursday, January 28, 2021 - 11:45am

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

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.

“Rhetorical Theory”
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.

PHOENIX: RESPONSES TO ADVERSITY

updated: 
Tuesday, January 19, 2021 - 3:23pm
IUP English Graduate Organization
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 5, 2021

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.

True Crime Index - Call for Book Reviews

True Crime Index
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 30, 2021

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.
