This next issue of FRAME, in collaboration with the OSL research group on Law, Literature and Society, will focus on the topic of “War, Literature and Law.” We invite scholars to consider the dynamics between the fields of literature and law as they intersect in making sense of, or in their impact on, the experience of war. How does literature influence how we conceptualize legality and political conflict? How do legal contentions, political conflicts, and their entanglement condition the creation of literary texts? And how are these negotiations conditioning, or conditioned by, war?

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2020 conference theme is “Cultures of Collectivity.” The conference will take place November 5-8 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The Writing Across the Curriculum permanent session will explore this theme by considering how writing pedagogy can encourage students to make connections between their sense of self and the community at large. Academia is rarely limited to the space of the classroom. Often lines between the individual student, the university space, and the local community blur to facilitate a deeper engagement with learning.
Topics might include, but are not limited to:

According to Darcy Ribeiro (1995), the Brazilian people have religiosity as a cornerstone of its culture. It not only played a large role in its “civilizatory” process, but also stimulated resistance movements, among which are the ones in Canudos, Bahia, and Lagoinha, Goiás. Religion has remained a strong identity feature through all of Brazilian history and, still today, it is the center of relevant social conflicts. Nevertheless, there is, in the Brazilian literary scene, very little space dedicated to the study of the representation of individuals and/or religious doctrines. The academy, thus, fosters the shunning of literary works bearing relationship with the mystic, the religious or, anything, in any way, connected with the sacred.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR A PROPOSED EDITED COLLECTION. We are seeking submissions for a collection of essays titled Beyond Equity Into Justice: Bringing Theory Into Practice at Community Colleges. This edited volume addresses how our changing attitudes towards serving all student populations has shifted the pedagogical and relational approaches used by faculty, staff, and administrators at community colleges. Attitudes about equality, equity, and justice are more intentional and integral to the evolution of the work we do as educators. Dr. Diane K.

Modernism has long been associated with an interest in consciousness, psychology, and the inner life, but critics have also long disagreed about how to understand this interest and what to make of it. The recent proliferation of cognitive approaches to reading and literature has renewed interest in questions concerning the modernist preoccupation with consciousness but has spawned new controversies about how to address them.
