Digital America is now accepting submissions for Issue No. 12. We are an online journal that focuses on digital art and culture with an eye towards impactful perspectives in the digital age, as well as deconstructing what it means to live in our current political climate. We are looking for critical essays, film, artwork, design, and reviews that question, analyze, and/or hack the tools of digital culture. We are also interested in work that explores how new behaviors and global networks of power and influence are examining what it means to be American.

One acclaimed academic publisher has already expressed interest in the collection.
We welcome papers on all aspects of Popular Culture worldwide as well as Creative Readings in all genres. Submit abstracts of about 75 words as well as title of presentation, affiliation and postal mailing address. Full panel submissions area also welcome. Send to email@example.com.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Animal/Language: An Interdisciplinary Conference
Held in conjunction with the art exhibition “Assembling Animal Communication”
Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX
21-23 March 2019
Following the success of its previous ACLA seminar “The Story of Memory: Remembering, Forgetting, and Unreliable Narrators” held in March 2018, this seminar invites paper proposals to discuss how memory is represented and imagined diversely in the works of literature, art, and film from different cultural contexts. Living in an age saturated with memory and forgetting, we see the protagonists unsettled by their lost memory in films and novels: Memento (2000), The Bourne Identity (2002), Remainder (2005), The Amnesiac (2007), Amnesia (2014), The Girl On the Train (2015), The Buried Giant (2015), etc.. These amnesic protagonists, haunted by déjà vu they can never make sense of, often experience trauma and violence.
Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter 2018-2019 issue.

Graduate students are welcome to contribute to the journal. Please submit your review electronically (as a Word attachment) to Randy Robertson, Reviews Editor of MLS, at firstname.lastname@example.org
