CALL FOR PAPERS

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992 — the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States — will hold its first virtual conference, and calls for presentations situated in colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.

In the 31 years of this conference, there has perhaps never been a more urgent time to address the fundamental issues of postcolonial studies: justice, injustice, the imposition of power, and the mechanisms of control.

Poetry and the Global Climate Crisis: Creative Approaches to Complex Challenges

updated: 
Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 3:46pm
Amatoritsro Ede/ Mount Allison University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

Our previous books, Poetry and Pedagogy across the Lifespan (2018) and Poetry and Sustainability in Education (forthcoming 2021/22), explore poetry’s crucial role in educating learners of all age groups to meet the challenges faced as we navigate current and future crises. While both of these volumes provide theoretical approaches and applicable tools and methods for teaching poetry in numerous contexts, the essays are heavily weighted towards European/North American poets and/or Western educational institutions. This new volume seeks to invite perspectives from around the globe, centering on comparativist or non-Western paradigms and practices.

Migration is one of the most prominent cultural, socio-political, and economic questions of our time. In both industrialised and less developed countries, it would be hard to find people who do not have a personal experience of migration and its effects, which ultimately ‘become the hallmark of the age of migration’ (Castles et al., 2013). According to the World Migration Report 2020, international migrants consist of only 3.6% (281 million) of the world population, and they make ‘significant sociocultural, civic-political and economic contributions in origin and destination countries and community’ (WMR, 2020). However, a great majority of people do not migrate across borders; instead, a large number of people migrate within countries.

Collaborative Intellectual Labor Today

In recent decades, the practice of collaborative intellectual labor has had an unexpected resurgence, both among writers and artists, and within scholarly and academic spaces. Drawing on a rich history of intellectual, activist, and artistic practices of collaboration, new collectives and research groups have embraced collaborative forms of knowledge production to challenge the individualization of intellectual labor and the demands of the neoliberal episteme.

ACLA 2022: Multilingual, Transregional, Comparative Approaches to South Asian Literature

updated: 
Friday, October 8, 2021 - 11:09am
American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The concept of South Asian literature is inherently unstable; South Asia is a regional term that covers several countries, some of which are still enemies recovering from shared histories of violence. In addition, the region of South Asia encompasses dozens of literary languages, including English – ironically the one “common” language of the region that is also the most "foreign." This panel seeks to animate comparison as a postcolonial and decolonizing practice in South Asian literary criticism. Comparison calls on scholars to think across boundaries of language, region or nation-state to imagine new points of connection among authors, texts, genres and modes.

The Dante sponsored session is designed to engage the poet’s interrogation and exploration of Justice as a fundamental ethical imperative that is rooted in the active free will of knowing and conscientious members of society and transcends contemporary debates about the purview or the limits of Retributive Justice, Distributive Justice, Procedural Justice, and Restorative Justice.

Queer Sahara | Queer Sonora

A Panel at the 53rd Annual Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) Convention

March 10-13, 2022 in Baltimore, Maryland (although hybrid presentations are possible)

In this panel, we will consider shared connections across desert spaces in the queer imaginary, using the Sonoran Desert and the Sahara Desert as specific sites of comparison, reinvention, liberation, and self-definition. Rather than empty spaces or zones of death, these deserts and their vibrant ecosystems contain various well-established queer enclaves such as Palm Springs, California; Bisbee and Melrose (Phoenix), Arizona; and locales at the edge of the Sahara, such as Fes and Marrakesh, Morocco.

ACLA: Literature After Rights

updated: 
Wednesday, October 6, 2021 - 9:33am
American Comparative Literature Association 2022 Annual Meeting
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

For over a decade now, the interdisciplinary study of human rights and literature has offered a generative lens for thinking about questions of citizenship, the nation-state, and narrative form. Scholars have studied the human rights novel (James Dawes), the co-constitution of human rights and the bildungsroman (Joseph Slaughter), literary and cinematic depictions of torture (Elizabeth Swanson Goldberg), and the rights-based political imaginations of American writers of color (Crystal Parikh), among other projects. These approaches have emphasized the discursivity of human rights: literature does not represent a static conception of human rights but rather helps shape understandings of what human rights are or could be.

 

ELR CFP: 2024 Special Issue and general call.

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:50pm
English Literary Renaissance
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 1, 2022

English Literary Renaissance invites article submissions of 8000 to 12000 words on race in non-dramatic Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-Century literature in English. We especially encourage submissions that forgo analysis of canonical work by Shakespeare and Spenser, and instead showcase other literary texts and authors of the period, along with new archival materials. While we have plans for a special issue that focuses on Sixteenth-Century literature to be published in 2024, we hope to add more than a single issue’s worth of material to our publication pipeline. We welcome a range of theoretical and methodological approaches. The deadline for authors who wish to be considered for the 2024 special issue is 1 August 2022.

ACLA 2022 - Ethics of Postcolonial Translation: Exploring New Modes of Power and Resistance in Transcultural Exchanges

Anum Aziz/University of North Texas
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The organizers of this seminar invite abstracts for American Comparative Literature Association (ACLA) 2022

 

The goal of this panel is to provide a platform to locate the fast-evolving theoretical precepts in translation from a postcolonial and cultural studies perspective. Taking an in depth look at the possibilities and challenges posed by translation, we aim to demonstrate the ways in which ‘ethical’ translation in various possible senses can be integral to forming a resistance culture to counter the political environment in the metropole, which aims to suppress multilingual and multicultural realities in the US and beyond.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 15, 2021

This panel is interested in critiques of narratives and representations of spaces and technologies of care, including the medicalization of homes, disabling spaces in the home, examinations of how bodied and disembodied artificial intelligence may change geographies of care, deterritorialization of long-term care facilities, the cosmopolitanized spaces of care in hotels, the gendered and racialized politics of service industries, and the promotion or promise of care through mediated forms of print and digital technologies.

Teaching the Global Eighteenth Century (Roundtable at ASECS Annual Conference, March 31-April 2, 2022, Baltimore, MD)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 9:52am
Geremy Carnes, Lindenwood University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 8, 2021

For this roundtable, we seek presentations on any aspect of teaching the eighteenth-century
within a global context. Presentations might focus on strategies for teaching transcultural and
transnational encounters; travel, trade, or colonialism; eighteenth-century world literatures; or
any text or set of texts—written, oral, visual, aural, or material—that “globalize” students’
engagement with the eighteenth century. We welcome presentations that offer strategies for
teaching subject matter that exposes, interrogates, unsettles, decenters, or displaces a Eurocentric
worldview.
