How has the Covid-19 pandemic changed or disrupted the contours of childhood both as a cultural concept and a lived experience? The term childhoods in this panel refers simultaneously to the complex and infinitely varied experiences of people called children while also evoking a shifting set of cultural investments, projections, desires, and disavowals.

Panel Organizer: Shawna Guenther email@example.com
We are seeking proposals for an edited collection tentatively titled Television Comedy & Cultural Crisis. Chapters should focus on a specific television series, and address how that series engages with the discourse of a particular cultural crisis through comedy. The function of comedy should be foregrounded, as the collection will be held together through the central question of how humor acts as space through which we can resist normative ways of thinking about these cultural crises.
Contributors might consider humorous depictions of, but are not limited to:
Book editor: Roshni Sengupta
Both “culture” and “people” are largely undefined and inherently diverse forms, susceptible to malleability and appropriation to suit different agendas. Considering popular culture as a field of struggle leads us to a distinction between popular forms of control as well as participation. Popular culture therefore remains tied to questions of representation, enactment, regulation and control. Reading the form requires the deployment of modes such as symbols and codes (semiotics), apparatus of production (political economy approach), audience and consumer response as well as through studies of the social life of cultural forms and their political frames.
The Pennsylvania College English Association (PCEA) invites proposals from faculty members, graduate students, and independent scholars for its 2022 Annual Conference on the theme of recovering lost writers and lost texts. We are especially interested in recovering marginalized voices, finding reasons for their disappearance, and charting a path to bring their writing and lives back into the light of current scholarship. Lost or forgotten work by canonical authors would also be welcome subjects of literary inquiry as part of this call, as would be papers that trace the evolution of a literary text from manuscript to magazine publication to book form if the changes are radical.
Reconfiguring Digital Spaces: GLO Conference 2022
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we have become painfully aware of how highly dependent we are on networked computers in most facets of our everyday lives. Shuffling from Zoomiverse to Metaverse and everything in between, computers remain the focal point of interactivity in life, entertainment, scholarship, and labor as in-person activities become increasingly constricted. Alternatives must be found; and even though dreams of totally transferring consciousnesses to digital avatars remain deeply rooted in the literary cyberpunk imaginaries of the 1980s and 90s, the pandemic brings us closer to realizing them in surprising ways.
