Elizabeth Zold, The Aphra Behn Society
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

This ASECS panel session for the Aphra Behn Society addresses fiction by women in the long eighteenth century and how these texts portray mothers and motherhood. Specifically, the panel calls for papers that examine the relationships that mothers, stepmothers, adoptive mothers, or stand-in mothers in fiction have with their children. The panel aims to investigate the depictions of mothers, including their presence or absence, written by women from across the period and within various genres of fiction, and it welcomes papers that complicate the understanding of mothers and motherhood in relation to the formation of morals, manners, or the education of children.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 3, 2016

We are soliciting essay contributions for the new book, Afro-Latino/as and the Media: What the media teaches our kids about race, class and gender identity.

Essays in this book critically examine how print, film, and digital media positively and negatively represent Afro-Latino groups and their race, culture, and gender identities. The major premise of the text is that media shapes our understanding of the world and how it functions; the minor premise is that the imagery, conversations, and reactions to what is presented in the media influence the minds of youth and their understanding.

Our authors have a firm grounding in tradition, but with an eye to the future and to our students. We welcome your submissions.

The Reception of the Latin American 'Boom' Generation Abroad

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

It is well known that the writers of the Latin American “Boom” Generation have influenced authors in emerging nations all over the world. Gabriel García Márquez, for example, played a significant role in shaping the works of Ismail Kadare (Albania), Salman Rushdie (India), and Chinua Achebe (Nigeria). All three of these authors have acknowledged García Márquez as a source of inspiration for their own writings; however, García Márquez’s other contemporaries including Carlos Fuentes, Mario Vargas Llosa, Julio Cortázar and more also influenced countless writers abroad. The main focus of this session is to explore how García Márquez and the other writers of the Latin American “Boom” have made an impact on authors beyond Latin America’s borders.
