Hip Hop Ecologies: A Workshop at the University of Konstanz (June 26-28, 2020)

Hip hop is one of the globally most successful forms of cultural production today. Since its emergence in the African American and Latino neighborhoods of 1970s New York City, it has spread around the world and exerted a considerable impact not only on pop culture, but on societal debates around race, class, public safety, nationality, gender, and a range of other issues. The rapidly expanding field of hip hop studies has examined its artistic development and cultural significance from a variety of angles. What has remained almost entirely absent from scholarly debate is the relationship between hip hop and the environment.

CFP for the 51st Annual NEMLA Conference in Boston, Massachusetts, March 5 - 8, 2019

Tracy K. Smith, with four books of poetry, a volume of memoirs, a Pulitzer Prize and two stints as America's poet laureate, has every claim to be a major American poet at the pinnacle of success. It is easy to dwell on the mainstream acceptance that this success has earned. Her work is often described in highly aesthetic language, with an emphasis on its beauty and craft, and she sits neatly in the American poetic tradition. Among those poets she considers “most necessary” she invokes Seamus Heaney, Elizabeth Bishop, and Philip Larkin (Ordinary Light 336).

Dr. Abby Bardi/NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel invites writers as well as literary scholars to address the question of political and literary engagement in our political age. In a political age, what happens to the novel or poem of interiority or introspection? Does literary material have to engage with the political? And if it doesn’t, can the political be read between its lines? What are the possibilities for creative work in an era that is increasingly in a state of emergency? Creative writers of all levels and genres are encouraged to explore these questions in the context of their own work. Paper proposals may be submitted on the NeMLA website. https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/User/SubmitAbstract/18240

Monday, September 30, 2019

While for many years, the literary canon was the province of “dead white men,” the past fifty years have dramatically altered that paradigm. Contemporary creative writers, too, would like their work to reflect the diversity and complexity of human experience in terms of race, gender, sexual identification, ethnicity, nationality, and culture. This panel invites creative writers of all genres, genders, races, sexual orientations, nationalities, cultures, etc., to consider the challenges of being more inclusive in their work. Some questions that will be considered: Is it possible to write from the perspectives of races, genders, etc., of whom one is not a representative?

Representations of Irishness in the 21st Century: Boundaries Between Past & Present

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 - 10:31am
PAMLA - Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

AbstractThis panel explores representations of Irishness in the 21st Century. From the Belfast Agreement and the “end” of the Northern Ireland Troubles to the Republic’s referenda on divorce, abortion, and marriage equality, the past 25 years present a dynamic and changing society on the island. Recalling Clare Connolly’s introduction to Ireland and Postcolonial Theory, in which she writes of instability of the “boundaries between past and present [...] memory and history, national and international,” this panel examines Irishness in relation to shifting global, political, and cultural contexts as they manifest in texts from the present and recent past in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Comparative Woman: Kin

Comparative Woman’s 2019 issue is looking for academic essays, poetry, art, interviews, and book reviews on our theme of “Kin.”

 

Theme: What is “kinship”? Is it merely biological or is it something that we choose? What are the bonds that we form? How do we form them? Why do we need these bonds? Why do these bonds matter? From Moms to Drag Mothers, covens to close-knit communities and cults, and siblings to fraternities: how do we recognize and establish “kin”?

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Print forms of poetry have traditionally been integral to writing and literature classes. However, for many students, especially those in first- or even second-year classes, the written word and the visual layout of poetic form can be foreign, even intimidating. This session will consider the possibilities offered by oral forms such as storytelling and spoken-word poetry. In addition to considering the pedagogical possibilities of oral performance, this session invites poets and storytellers to share their own original work.

Since the rise of the novel during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the literary marketplace has famously been a powerful influence on the form, format, and concerns of both short and longer fiction. This panel will consider the realities of contemporary publishing as a business and the way its corporate structure, economic practices, and publishing procedures impact the lives and work of writers. Some questions to consider: what effects does the advent of electronic publishing have on both the content and the distribution of literary work? How have expanded opportunities for self-publishing impacted the novel’s form and content? What is the contemporary publishing process like, and what are some effective strategies for navigating it?

Since the development of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop at the University of Iowa in the 1930s, creative writing courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level have proliferated. In 2008, there were 156 MFA programs in Creative Writing in the U.S; in 2016 there were 244. This roundtable will consider the status of international creative writing courses and programs within the context of the evolving picture of higher education. Some questions to consider: What effects might the spread of online education have on creative-writing pedagogy? Is creative writing as a field sustainable? As higher education moves to encompass a variety of formats and economic models, how will creative writing courses have to evolve?

In Pursuit of Sound: An Interdisciplinary Symposium

Faculty of English, University of Cambridge, 1 – 2 October 2019 

In Pursuit of Sound is a two day symposium which aims to rally researchers engaged in sound studies, and interrogate the discipline’s promises and pitfalls. The humanities’ ‘aural turn’ might be said to have been completed, but we are interested in advancing sound studies towards new, strange, and challenging inquiries. To that end, we invite proposals for twenty minute papers on the theme of sound, from postgraduates, ECRs, and academics across the humanities. Proposals might address the following topics, although these are not exhaustive:
