Panel, Women of the Avant-Garde and Political Dissent: Resisting Power from the Margins

Monday, March 12, 2018 - 9:23am
SAMLA 90, Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and their Allies
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 4, 2018

This panel examines the role of avant-garde women in confronting models of gender, domesticity and political practices safeguarded by patriarchal society. From the margins of vanguardism women effectively engaged in syndicalist and anarchist movements that reacted to state politics, while urging the importance of launching social reforms and radical art. This panel will thus provide an overview of artists who participated in a variety of experimental trends such as Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Imagism, Vorticism, Dadaism and Surrealism, among others.

Writing the Black Country

Monday, March 5, 2018 - 11:19am
The University of Wolverhampton
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018

Writing the Black Country is a blog edited by Dr Paul McDonald and R. M. Francis, from the Centre of Transnational and Transcultural Research at University of Wolverhampton in the UK. It's designed to showcase writing about England's industrial Midlands, and we are interested particularly in poetry and short prose pieces that focus on specific areas within the region.

We're less interested in writing about the region generally, but are looking for site, place or area specific work. For example, using a town, a street, a site as a point of departure or as setting for a work of fiction or poetry.

In time, this blog will transition, becoming an online, interactive literary map.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 3, 2018

The idea of a “lost generation” still has a hold on the popular imagination over ninety years after it was popularized via the epigraph of The Sun Also Rises.  For literary scholars and historians, though, that idea is critically worn-out if not simply useless.  This panel seeks to understand anew this old idea.  Questions to be addressed include but are not limited to:

How has the idea of the lost generation been critically and historically misunderstood and/or abused?
