Something about our medieval past continues to fascinate contemporary readers, including a readership most often associated with all that is shiny and new: children and young adults. For this panel, which will be proposed for the 2016 Texas Medieval Association (TEMA) conference, we seek papers that focus on the medieval in texts for young audiences. Some possible areas for exploration include:
•Children's/YA adaptations of medieval texts (including books, television, and film)
•Medieval motifs in contemporary children's or YA literature or film
•The function of medievalism in children's/YA texts

As queer theory continues to evolve and utopian studies dusts itself off from its relative dormancy until the late twentieth century, the two strands of thought have grabbed ahold of one another in hopes to uncover just what "The Future" might mean to those identifying as queer. This panel seeks papers wishing to join the vibrant conversation of the relationship between queerness and utopianism. Is queerness inherently utopic? Is the future inherently queer? How might queer individuals enact utopic desires? Can we find moments of the queerly utopic and utopicly queer in canonical and non-canonical literature?
A Roundtable Session for MLA 2017 in Philadelphia, organized for the Law and Humanities Forum.
Proposals are welcome for 10-minute papers that focus on a single "thing." The aim of the session is to consider key theoretical issues surrounding legal personhood—questions of consent, responsibility, rights, and freedom—as they manifest themselves at the level of substance, form, and lived environment. Taken together, these papers will establish a material archive for personhood and model new ways of putting legal studies into conversation with other thriving subfields in the humanities, such as material culture studies, animal studies, science studies, ecotheory, disability studies, and critical theory.
We often think of the terms "globe" and "world" as synonymous because they seem to similarly name the totality of the thing on which or in which we all find ourselves living. This panel asks contributors to consider different formations of planetary or worldly experience in the long eighteenth century, if only to highlight the particular implications of considering the world as species of globe.
The English Language Conference seeks papers from scholars in all fields of English, including but not limited to Literature, Rhetoric and Composition, TESL, Creative Writing, and Education.
