Call for Book Chapter Proposals / The Invisible Professor: A Blueprint for Adjunct Faculty

Let’s be honest for a moment.  Right now, higher education is a giant !@#$ show. 

1.  Enterprising graduate students are in limbo because of departmental cuts and new caps on M.A. and Ph.D. programs.   

2.  Adjuncts are being forced back into the classrooms, many lacking adequate insurance, while COVID-19 spreads like wildfire. 

3.  Chairs and deans are running around with their heads cut off due to projected enrollment and budget woes.  Some smaller institutions may be forced to close their iron gates forever.

MLA 2022: Remote Middle English 2: Present Negotiations with the Past

MLA Middle English Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 20, 2021

Sequestered away from our institutions, colleagues, and students, and yet continuing to seek connections with them, many medievalists have no doubt registered the uncanny resemblance between the newly remote experiences of our work and the already pervasive perceptions of that work as remote, both within and without academe. On the one hand, we find ourselves suddenly at a mandated remove from the special collections and archives that our work often requires, even while immersing ourselves in the twenty-first media technology that, we hope, will convey to students at a distance the excitement of texts originally hand copied on parchment.

Sport has always been a significant aspect of human life. From the Olympic Games in Ancient Greece to the birth of football in the second half of the 19th century England and to contemporary sporting activities around the world, sport has always been a vital element of human activities. Sport is essential to health and happiness of people of all ages, genders, races, etc. and it needs to be studied through an interdisciplinary and international approach.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

This proposed special session roundtable invites reflections on the tensions and limits of teaching and studying literature at religious as well as secular universities and colleges. How do different institutional commitments and governing documents as well as campus cultures and constituencies implicitly and/or explicitly limit what can be taught and published at each kind of institution? What are these limits and how have scholars navigated, challenged, and/or adapted to them? What kind of institutional discursive spaces might be created between and beyond the secular/religious divide?

Out of Bounds: An Exploration of Boundaries in Crisis Online Conference: 14 & 15 July 2021 Trinity Centre for Literary & Cultural Translation 


From the exact lines on an architect’s blueprints to the demarcations on maps that shape the world today, boundaries have consequences. In concrete form they have separated societies, but they need not be material in order to exert power. The onset of crisis often sees the imposition of boundaries that are nebulous and ill-defined but surely no less potent than the menacing walls of segregation.

True Crime Index - Call for Book Reviews

updated: 
Tuesday, January 19, 2021 - 10:07am
True Crime Index
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 30, 2021

As an increasingly popular genre, true crime has enjoyed a fascinating surge in both academic and cultural interest over the last twenty years. As a relatively new academic discipline, scholars such as Mark Seltzer, David Schmidt, Tanya Horeck, and many others have published ground-breaking studies of the phenomenon of true crime and our various responses to it. However, the gap between popular culture’s interest in true crime and the burgeoning academic discipline remains wide, and True Crime Index invites reviews that seek to close this gap.

The thirteenth biennial Thomas R. Watson Conference in Rhetoric and Composition, which will be held virtually from April 21-23, 2021, will focus on policies and practices for planning and convening antiracist conferences. The exigence for our theme is global and local. This year’s uprisings for Black liberation have only reaffirmed the need for institutions of higher education to confront their roles in perpetuating a white supremacist system and, with the BIPOC students, faculty, and staff who have endured this violence and marginalization, to create just and equitable structures in its place.
