Jenna Sterling, Temple University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Lawrence Buell’s essay “The Ecocritical Insurgency” (1999) claims that “human beings are inescapably biohistorical creatures who construct themselves, at least partially, through encounters with physical environments that they cannot not inhabit.” Precisely two centuries earlier, American writer Charles Brockden Brown advocates for a specifically American gothic tradition; Brown adapts the European gothic to American soil.

The Hemlow Prize in Burney Studies

Learning With Animals: Anthropomorphization and the Animal Mind

updated: 
Tuesday, August 18, 2020 - 10:46am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While it is considered dubious to anthropomorphize animals to learn about them, learning with animals asks scholars to consider both animal and human ways of being and knowing, as well as where those epistemologies might overlap or diverge. Attempting to learn with animals requires consideration of the value of anthropomorphization. Drawing on the burgeoning field of animal studies, we invite literary scholars to consider how literature imagines animals and their ways of being and knowing—whether alternate or familiar.

Being Human in the Digital Age: The Future of Humanities (Panel)

Friday, July 17, 2020 - 11:03am
NeMLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

As we progress deeper and deeper into an age of data abundance, as what Simon Rogers describes a phenomenon of a “time in which we are all surrounded by data” with continued access to it, we are at the heart of a process of self-digitization, datafication, and online existence. Our move into cyberspaces and our dependence on digital platforms for information, communication, congregation, and self-design necessitate the crucial intervention of the Humanities as a discipline and a human-centered approach to understand what it means to be human in the digital age.

Literature of Crisis and Apocalypse PAMLA Panel

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Apocalyptic literature and its study have typically centered around notions of Christian eschatology, i.e. the judgement presented in the Book of Revelations. However, the aftermath of the second world war helped reshape our notions of this genre. Apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has begun to examine the relations between humans and the Earth during the Anthropocene. Images of global thermonuclear war, fears of communism, and a burgeoning climate change (with its subsequent and constituent crises) have eclipsed the teleological notions of divine creation and its eventual, inexorable movement towards eschatology.

Don DeLillo and Religious Spaces PAMLA Panel

updated: 
Thursday, July 9, 2020 - 7:16am
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

The Don DeLillo Society invites abstracts on DeLillo's use of space, virtual or physical, as new religious sites. From Jack Gladney's transcendent trips to the supermarket in White Noise to Sister Edgar's implied dissolution into the virtual heaven of the internet in Underworld, religious spaces proliferate throughout DeLillo's work. Yet in contrast to the religious experience, DeLillo also suggests a destructive inversion: The Airborne Toxic Event, The Kazakh Test Site. Characters often undertake pilgrimages to mid-Western towns, art exhibits, weapons testing sites, and even city dumps. In each of these excursions, characters seek to understand a sociality between themselves and the contexts they inhabit.

The Secular and the Literary: Re-thinking Analysis and Interpretation in Light of Post-Secularism

updated: 
Tuesday, June 16, 2020 - 9:54am
NEMLA 2021- North East Modern Language Association 52nd Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Ever since Charles Taylor (A Secular Age) and Talal Asad (Formations of the Secular) questioned the supremacy of secularization, scholars in the fields of philosophy, sociology, and anthropology have used post-secularism to analyze gender, state violence, religion, pain, the senses, and more. This perspective has helped us to consider how secularization has been accepted as normative and inevitable, and how it functions as a disciplinary apparatus or as a constructed ideology.
