Dear Colleagues,

The topic of women in Buddhism spans a large geographical and historical expanse, beginning some 2500 years ago during the lifetime of the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama. Throughout the history of Buddhism, women—their status within the traditions, their contributions, and their myriad roles—have been a subject of attention and concern.  The present volume seeks to examine how women’s roles in Buddhism have changed over time, how the women’s ordination movement has developed in specific contexts, and how women have changed the landscape of Buddhism, both as practitioners (lay and monastic) and as scholars in the field.

(1) This issue will examine the changing landscape of women in Buddhism;

The Fairy Tales Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association seeks paper presentations on any topic involving fairy tales. While our interests are broad and inclusive, we invite papers that discuss fairy tales in contemporary popular culture (TV shows, movies, graphic novels, advertising, toys, video games, popular literature, etc), revisions and adaptations of fairy tales (including creative projects, such as poems, short fiction, TV shows), and approaches that consider the subversive nature of the fairy tale (such as subverted family values, queering the fairy tale, etc.). Still, we are interested in as wide an array of papers as possible, so please do not hesitate to send a submission on any fairy tale related subject.

“To write, and to read, is to be exposed, to expose oneself […] to ‘exscription’.” – The Birth to Presence


“We have to begin by getting through, and by means of, the exscription of our body: its being inscribed-outside, its being placed outside the text as the most proper movement of its text; the text itself being abandoned, left at its limit.” – Corpus



A Museum of One’s Own: Literature, Space and the Work of Art

Monday, August 14, 2017 - 10:32am
49th annual NeMLA convention in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (April 12-15, 2018)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel will aim to conceptualize the relationship between literature and the museum in the age of cultural mediation and digital media. We will examine how the imagined and immaterial museum space, as represented in the narrative text, can contribute to redefining the aesthetic experience for the spectator. This will also allow us to explore the critical posture adopted by contemporary authors with respect to the existing configuration of the physical museum space available to the public. The multiplication of stories staged in the museum space raises the question of the type of narratives that the museum experience can offer.
