Life Narratives: Prismatic World of the Author and Beyond
The Twentieth century saw the rapid development of the city and its impact on the socio-cultural fabric of nations manifested in the social and cultural ways of living. The city came to be represented as an urban wasteland and the loss and moving away from the pastoral was eulogised in many texts. These texts looked into the anonymity of the individual in the milieu of the city where the older closed bonds of the familiar rural community got replaced by the unfamiliar existence. The village was seen as an idyllic space nurturing the humans towards an organic and symbiotic coexistence and ways of living.

In Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous, the playwriting Earl of Oxford looks on from the galleries of the Globe as a performance of his/Shakespeare’s Henry V whips up a large crowd of groundlings, just as the Earl had intended it. Earlier the Earl had already enthused over a match of tennis about the possibilities of theatre – “That’s power.” This year’s Shakespeare Seminar seeks to discuss the countless ways in which Shakespeare, his works, early modern culture as well as later performances of Shakespeare’s works are political or have been politicised. To what extent can his plays be seen to endorse certain power politics? Are politics in Shakespeare ultimately a question of genre?

CALL FOR PAPERS, ABSTRACTS, AND PANEL PROPOSALS
Midwest Popular Culture Association/Midwest American Culture Association Annual Conference
Naseeruddin Shah, the actor, once claimed that “The roots may look lost but every big story in the Hindi film industry is from Shakespeare.” It might not be as simple as that but what Shah was pointing out was to the fact that there are many references to Shakespeare’s plays in Hindi film. Not just Hindi but Indian cinema reveals an adaptation and appropriation of the Bard of Avon. There are themes and devices so commonly found in Shakespeare’s plays in Indian films, such as twins separated at birth, cross dressing characters, star-crossed lovers, characters falling in love with messengers, the wise fool, the tamed Shrew and the mousetrap device.
Marginalized groups may be contrary to the dominant culture within a society through their very own existence. In cultures where those who reinforce divisions may seek to ostracize the Other by portraying them in a negative light, counter-hegemonic representations of the marginalized can be revolutionary. This panel will examine how non-dominant cultures in contemporary literature are depicted in the context of the dominant.
Central questions include:
What makes something (e.g. an action, a person's/group's identity) within a dominant culture subversive?
What are the benefits and repercussions of acting against the collective conscience?

International Review of Literary Studies (IRLS) is an International peer-review journal of literary studies that publishes original research articles, review papers, and book reviews, and cutting-edge research informed by Literary and Cultural Theory. Acceptable themes include, but are not limited to, the following:
Traveling, both as a concept and performativity, has yielded a diverse range of criticalliteratures that probe into the epistemological, ethical and aesthetic dimensions oftravel and mobility. However, much of the critical theories on travel (and, of late,nomadology) draw on the Western canon, while there appears to be a dearth ofproportionate research on and/or documentation of the indigenous analyticalframeworks that engage with travel(ing) theory.
Bilingual, themed issue.
The eruption of anti-racist movements in the public discourse over the past ten years, both in Italy, France, and in a broader context within Western Europe, has incited a re-engagement with the colonial histories of western countriesas well as their current racist and anti- immigration policies. The voices that emerged (with public figures such asAssa Traoré in France, Fabrice Vil in Québec, and Rula Jebréal in Italy) all encourage the general public to reflect onthe ways in which institutions need to be destabilized in order to make progress in terms of racial equality and criminal justice reform. In the wake of heightened social outrage around the globe, we are requesting proposals for papers which address issues of social justice and activism in Franc

The Journal of Literary Multilingualism explores texts written in non-native languages, in a mix of languages and alternating languages. It examines a wide range of literary practices from around the globe broadly defined by multilingual and multicultural situations. The phenomenon of literary multilingualism is as old as literature itself but has received more scholarly attention as migration and globalization have increased in recent years. As the first international journal devoted entirely to this emerging interdisciplinary field, it offers a forum for cutting-edge research across the humanities and social sciences.

nitial world responses to the Holocaust included the declaration “never again” (Gilbert, 2000; Reese, 2017; Herman, 2018; Power, 2013). This Special Issue on “Remembering Genocides and the Holocaust” invites contributions from different fields, such as the film, music, museums, and literature. Contributions may explore specific representations in their own right or the relationship between representations and lived experiences pertaining to genocide/ holocaust. They may focus on how remembrances of Holocausts and Genocides have been transformed over time, including, but not limited to the globalization, nationalization or privatization of such memories.
Since the signing of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, the Arctic (understood here as the circumpolar region around and north of the Arctic Circle) has entered worldwide public discussion to an unprecedented extent.

Plesae submit to this virtual (online) panel of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA):
The panel on "Transforming and Transcending Single Stories" invites proposals that address how we can challenge, transform, and transcend single stories so that we break current stereotypes, discriminatory practices, assumptions, and myths about what is different, alien, and unknown. Conscious attempts to resist single narratives prompt us to pay attention to efforts that exclude and undermine diverse perspectives, and that limit our understanding of who we are, how we view others, and the choices we make when we interact face-to-face or through social media on a local, national, and global level.
