Call for papers (online conference) — Expanded Poetry: The Poetics and Politics of Repetition

updated: 
Sunday, May 8, 2022 - 12:15pm
Institute for Comparative Literature — Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Porto
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 15, 2022

The history of poetry is a history of repetition. Poetry has always been shaped by repetition, not only through the repetitive mechanisms of language itself but also through the meter, rhyme, structure, alliterations, anaphors, parallelisms, among other kinds of repetition at the structural, phonetic, rhetorical or lexical levels. In addition, repetition is also crucial for understanding literary periods and movements, as well as for grasping the relationships they establish with each other. Crucially, research has demonstrated how even the discourses of the avant-gardes, with their proposal of radical variation, are often linked to previous historical periods.

Saturday, June 25, 2022

This traditional session welcomes submission on any aspect of African American Literature that attends to how black writers use literature to bring out discussion on climate injustice. With the conference theme of "change," readers of African American Literature often miss the criticism of climatic injustice that is present in much literary work, especially of 20th Century Black writers. From Zora Hurston, to Richard Wright, to Jean Toomer, etc., there are many instances of a critique of climatic injustices that are often either misread or simply glossed over. This panel aims to reconsider black writers as the leading figures in both ecocriticism and ecofeminism.

Changes in Asian / Asian American Studies and Its Pedagogies (SAMLA 94 panel)

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 25, 2022

Since the emergence of Asian American Studies as an intellectual field of studies almost 60 years ago, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies has not only evolved as a whole but has also had to endure ongoing changes and readaptations. Now, perhaps more than ever, the field of Asian / Asian American Studies calls for new changes or perhaps even a new vision, to help us cope with the many living realities and meanings—whether racially, culturally, historically, or politically, just to name a few—on which we stand.

Gardening to Remember, Gardening to Forget Gardening as Memory Work in Contemporary Fiction

updated: 
Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 1:42pm
Dr. Deniz Gundogan Ibrisim, Sabanci University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

Gardening is generally considered as an affective-material labor whereby, plants, soil, matter, and objects are transformed—through practices of care, love, and attention—into new well-planned landscapes, vegetation, and a good harvest.  Even though early writing, in Latin and Greek was more concerned with agriculture than gardening, writing about gardens has a long history in France and England, an tends to be rhetorical — in an attempt to tie the beauty and harmony found in great landscapes to higher artistic pursuits.

William Gaddis Beyond the "Very Small Audience": Centenary, Archive, and Futures

updated: 
Tuesday, April 26, 2022 - 1:43pm
Gaddis Centenary Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 13, 2022

The last decade has been good for Gaddis’ public profile. Three major milestones—Joseph Tabbi’s biography, Steven Moore’s edition of Gaddis’ letters, and #Occupy Gaddis, 2012’s global social-media readthrough of J R—have seen Gaddis discussed across major US media, the letters and biography reviewed more widely (in an age of less literary reviewing) than much of Gaddis’ fiction was during his lifetime. As a result, Gaddis’ first two novels are now republished in the NYRB Classics series, giving them their best chance yet of finding that post-2010s boom audience.

Crisis in Contemporary British Fiction (edited volume)

updated: 
Friday, April 22, 2022 - 9:03am
Anastasia Logotheti
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 30, 2022

This collection of critical essays explores how contemporary British authors engage with the theme of crisis in their fiction (as apparent in novels and short stories by Julian Barnes, A S Byatt, Graham Swift, Hilary Mantel, Zadie Smith, Pat Barker, Martin Amis, among others.)

‘Crisis’ can be investigated not only as informing any aspect of fiction involving sociopolitical and cultural systems, but also as a mode of challenge to established power structures and modes of representationacross narrative traditions.

Submissions should focus on one or more of the aforementioned major contemporary British authors (though you are welcome to propose additional British authors who explore the theme of crisis).
