Daniel Siegel’s term “mindsight” describes the ability to perceive the operations of one’s mind as well as the minds of others. This panel will chart the implications of this capability in a variety of cultured contexts, exploring these new ways of “seeing” ourselves and others.

Individual paper presentations will be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please submit proposals via the online system by June 26, 2017. The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

CFP: Face and Speech: The Audiovisual Scene of Knowning and Encountering for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

This session focuses on the epistemic, philosophical, and political implications of seeing and speaking. It starts from the image of a face that speaks—an image that solicits further thoughts about the relation between visual arts and literary texts, between representation and dialogue imagination, between being seen as the other and speaking as the other.

Individual paper presentations will be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please submit proposals via the online system by June 26, 2017. The PAMLA 2017 Conference will be held at the lovely Chaminade University of Honolulu (with the official conference hotel being the Ala Moana) from Friday, November 10 to Sunday, November 12.

For this roundtable discussion panel, participants will be asked to prepare a very brief, five-minute presentation of their work as it pertains to digital feminisms, social justice activism, social justice pedagogy, or community engagement. In addition to these topics, other topics may include digital teaching tools (websites, blogs, geo-mapping, podcasts, videos, web-archives, etc.), digital activism and critical media, experimental pedagogy, and collaborative, inter-university projects. Presentations may reflect on theoretical contexts for intersections between these topics, or they may demonstrate actual hands-on projects that exemplify those intersections for use in teaching and research.

Immersive Identities: Measuring the Reality of Virtual Spaces

NEMLA 2018 - Pittsburg April 12-15, 2018

This panel engages a debate surrounding virtual reality and immersive story telling: do subjects project their real selves into virtual worlds, or do they use them to experience alternative identities?

By closing experiential gaps between the virtual and corporal, immersive virtual spaces can be experienced as real. Accordingly, virtual reality and immersive story telling can encourage subjects to express their real social behaviors, emotions, or morals. Similarly, subjects often experience virtual worlds in this manner, despite the presence of fictive or fictional elements.

Are We Victorian?

In 1875, Anthony Trollope published The Way We Live Now, a novel about financial crises, political corruption, debt, and xenophobia. These topics are familiar to us as well: The Way We Live Now is, in many ways, still the way we live now.

Much recent debate in Victorian studies has concerned “presentism”—the idea that we still live with in a Victorian world. Presentism says that there is not much new about “neoliberalism:” as the manifesto of the V21 collective puts it, “In finance, resource mining, globalization, imperialism, liberalism, and many other vectors, we are Victorian, inhabiting, advancing, and resisting the world they made."

Guest Editor: Laura Doyle
Deadline for Submissions: 1 June 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.
