ACLA 2018: Bodies in Motion: Gender, Race, and Politics in Travel Narratives

deadline for submissions:

Travel narratives are unavoidably influenced by the changes in perspectives and new experiences that take place as bodies cross national, political, and cultural boundaries. They also situate the body, particularly the gendered body, within a larger context that ascribes bodily roles and hierarchies through the rhetoric of power and mobility.

Space and Psyche in Contemporary Latinx/Latin American Culture (NeMLA Pittsburgh 2018)

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel reflects on the relationship between space and psyche in contemporary Latinx and Latin American texts. With movement across the Americas in constant flux, Latin American and Latinx literatures offer insights into this border-crossing psyche, with recent novels depicting the diverse reactions subjects exhibit in forming, surviving, and thriving. For example, the heroine of Yuri Herrera’s Señales que precederán al fin del mundo (2011) comes to terms with her subjectivity in her journey north, while the journalist of Horacio Castellanos Moya’s Insensatez (2004) finds his conception of self shaken after his move.

CFP: Refuge

46th Annual Louisville Conference on Literature & Culture Since 1900

The whole world was a refugee now that the war had at last ended. 

 — Lawrence Durrell, Sebastian, or Ruling Passions (1982)

 

Any man, even the greatest, can be broken in a moment and has no refuge. Any theory which denies this is a lie. For myself, I have no theories.

 —Iris Murdoch, The Black Prince (1973)

In his 1988 lecture “The Condition We Call Exile,” Joseph Brodsky said: “Whatever the proper name for these people [refugees, exiles, émigrés], whatever their motives, origins, and destinations, whatever their impact on the societies which they abandon and to which they come may amount to—one thing is absolutely clear: they make it very difficult to talk about the plight of the writer in exile with a straight face. Yet talk we must; and not only because literature, like poverty, is known for taking care of its own kind, but more because of the ancient and perhaps as yet unfounded belief that should the masters of this world be better read, the mismanagement and grief that make millions take to the road could be somewhat reduced.”

En Route: Travel, Transport, Transit

updated:

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Accounts of migration and displacement often focus on the bounded terrains of specific cities and the navigation of certain rooted sites, places of origin and/or destination. At the same time, cartographic and spatial terminology (e.g. “mapping,” “space,” “place,” “orientation”) are used in increasingly metaphorical ways, at the possible expense of more historical and/or materialist approaches to theorizing the global, the planetary, and the transnational. This panel invites contributors to examine the affective as well as material dimensions of being ‘in transit,’ the enabling condition of more familiar narrative tropes of exile, migration, travel and displacement.

Interest in Balkan Studies, especially among scholars from the Balkans, has increased considerably. Being such a unique region, the Balkans have stirred the imagination of writers, travelers, scholars and the like.

The conference promises to offer multidisciplinary perspectives in various fields of Balkan studies, namely in literature, cultural and language studies. It will be open to complementary and alternative ideas and interpretations. One of the main ambitions will be tackling taboo topics with the intention to overcome any forms of ordinary fanaticism, bias, fabricated antagonism, prejudices and stereotypes.
