NeMLA 2022 CFP: Advancing Comics Theory

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

Comics studies has been an established field long enough now to have consistent theoretical touchstones: Scott McCloud, Thierry Groensteen, and a handful of others. But much contemporary work on comics continues to rely on the same theoretical frameworks, returning to Understanding Comics over and over again. This session invites panelists to speculate on new directions for formal comics theory, leaving behind individual texts and close readings to ask for innovations our theories of comics as a medium. Of course, because of the abbreviated nature of conference papers, it will be impossible to put forward a fully-formed, all-encompassing new theory.

HUNGER AND WASTE

Volume 40, Number 1, Spring 2022

Issue Editor: Isabelle Meuret

 

This issue of Literature and Medicine will interrogate expressions of hunger and waste in both literary and biomedical contexts.

Hunger is a physiological disposition, a daily preoccupation, and a metaphor for desire. On another scale, global hunger—leading to malnutrition and starvation—affects hundreds of millions living in poverty. As for waste, the dearth, careless use, or squandering of resources, together with climate change and other environmental challenges, have raised new concerns about food supplies and unequal access.

 CFP: Migration, Adaptation and Memory 

How do we remember and represent our migration experiences? Who is involved in these processes? How does history remember these events? What helps migrants and societies to adapt? The significance of these and related questions have made their way into our daily lives, from the refugee crisis to policy decisions, individual psychotherapy to (re)building identities, communities, and memories.
