CFP Deadline Extended: Women and Agency: Transnational Perspectives, c.1450-1790

updated: 
Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 10:38am
Virtual Symposium, University of Oxford
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

This two-day interdisciplinary symposium invites scholars to examine early modern women’s agency from a transnational perspective. Conversations about women’s agency continue to ripple across the world, from new, passionate campaigns in Mexico and Poland that have fought to address feminicide and sexual violence, to the Women’s Marches, which have annually inspired global response. Now, we turn with fresh urgency to early modern women’s participation in intellectual and literary cultures that bridged regional, national, and transnational divides.

Illness, Society and the Self

Henry James Society
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 15, 2021

In the context of the current viral pandemic, we look with fresh intensity at figurations of the invalid and of disease and disability in James’s fictional and non-fictional writing. With an eye to the cultural and political aspects of public health measures aimed at managing the spread of an infectious pathogen, we ask in particular about the relation in James’s work of sickness, subjectivity and society. How do James’s texts relate social experience to bodily ill-health or impairment? Does James position the invalid as a figure indicative of dysfunction in the larger social body, or suggest, in contrast, that illness or disability may be associated with an excess of social contact, a failure of ‘social distancing’?

Provocative Parables at the Intersection of the Secular and the Supernatural (PCA/ACA, Philosophy and Culture Area, panel/roundtable) (EXTENDED DEADLINE)

Synopsis: A number of anniversaries in 2021 — including the tenth of the premiere of David Benioff and W.B. Weiss’ television series, Game of Thrones, Tom Perrotta’s novel, The Leftovers, and Terrence Malick’s film, The Tree of Life, and the twentieth of Neil Gaiman’s novel, American Gods — is a provocative occasion for a critical reexamination of these and related parables at the intersection of the secular and the supernatural, in their original formulations and as they have developed subsequently.

The Stand, the Original Stephen King Novel and its Adaptations, in the Covid era (PCA/ACA, Stephen King Area, panel/roundtable) (EXTENDED DEADLINE)

In crises, many of us turn to literature and other forms of popular culture not only for comfort, but for insight, guidance. So it is in the "Covid era," that we have turned to "pandemic literature" and related forms for popular Culture, including Stephen King’s The Stand (1978, 1990) and its adaptations to date (1994, on television, and 2008 and 2012, in comics). Already provocative, the phenomenon is all the more so for Josh Boone's recent television adaptation, appearing amidst the ongoing pandemic, from December 17, 2020 through February 11, 2021 (http://www.imdb.com/video/vi2525675801). More so still, King, in writing the finale’s screenplay, has enriched the original’s conclusion.

Disability, Race, and the Politics of Care (MLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, February 19, 2021 - 11:17am
Davy Knittle, University of Pennsylvania and Declan Gould, Temple University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 10, 2021

This panel gathers papers that consider relational models of disability and histories of systemic racism in the U.S. to read quotidian practices of care. We situate care across scales, as we ask how care relationships between individuals are embedded in larger practices of identifying and resisting racialized harm in contexts including medical access, environmental racism, housing inequality, and economic justice. How, as disability and race scholars, can we consider individual and everyday acts of care as sites at which to identify and resist structural conditions of ableist, racialized physical and psychological harm and reimagine the dynamics of vulnerability and difference?

Monday, May 10, 2021

Over the course of the 20th century and into the 21st, cinema, television, and related media have become increasingly central both to individual lives and to the lives of peoples, groups, and nations. Cinema has become a major form of cultural expression and films both reflect and influence the attitudes and behaviour of people, representing their tensions and anxieties, hopes and desires and incarnating social and cultural determinants of the era in which they were made.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
ISSUE 13: MASKS

A little more than a year since the COVID-19 pandemic began, masks have become an ever-present symbol of our own historical moment. Yet, apart from their present topicality, masks have long played a part in literature and the arts. For this thirteenth issue of Oxford Research in English (ORE), we invite articles that examine the textual, intertextual, and extratextual ways in which masks feature, are performed, or are regarded more generally in literature.

The Politics of Food in the United States

updated: 
Friday, February 19, 2021 - 10:46am
Alice Béja - Lille Institute of Political Science
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 30, 2021

Food in the United States is framed by myths and stereotypes. The myth of America as a land of plenty, embodied by the “first” Thanksgiving, is far from the reality the first settlers encountered, and creates an image of harmonious relations between Native Americans and New England colonists that belies the violence of colonization. Today, the image of the “fast food nation” masks the diversity of local cuisines and the rich history of food and foodways in the US.
