This goes out in the public domain with the desire to establish an academic association titled
tentatively as “Association for the Study of Marginalised Literatures of the World”.
There are multiple academic associations which are focusing on mainstream and
dominant cultures and literature. We know that there are also associations which are focusing
on one or the other marginalised community and their literature. Our aim is to provide a
single and unique platform to all the possible marginalised literatures which are either
neglected or not taken seriously.
We are planning to bring the scholars and academicians on a single stage that will

The moments of the past do not remain still; they retain in our memory the motion which drew them towards the future, towards a future which has itself become the past, and draw us on in their train.” (Marcel Proust).

Handbook of the Short Story

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 19, 2022

We are editing a Handbook of the Short Story in the World for Brill as part of the series Handbooks of Literary and Cultural Studies, and we are looking for chapters on some specific topics (see below). We are well aware that the chapters are broad in their scope. Some of these chapters should have a comparativist approach that covers several countries. For that reason, we are looking for potential contributors who have expertise in the field to write a synthetical approach to the topic while at the same time being analytical in the discussion of concrete short stories. Ideally a chapter should offer an overview of the topic, and then discuss three or four authors and/ or stories.

Research on the premodern intersection of race, gender, and sexuality has steadily increased as a result of the efforts of a diverse group of scholars working across traditional periodization and geographic limits. Nevertheless, a great deal of work remains to be done to understand the many varieties of ways such aspects of identities intersected and were mobilized or challenged in the marking of difference.

CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS: DOGMAS IN LITERATURE and LITERARY MISSIONARY: TEXT, READER AND CRITIQUE

Önder Çakırtaş
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

This book project aims to examine the existence of dogma in literature and some cult texts, and how dogmas in literature are conveyed to various audiences as a mission by some literary readers, experts and academics. The questions leading up to the volume are varied and their answers require lengthy examination and interpretation. So, this project investigates; Is literature dogmatic? What about literary theories? Can they be dogmatic, too? The answers to these questions are open to clarification, but the responses can also initiate an extensive discussion and manifestation. However, above all, literature does have an aspect that drags the readers, habitually burying them in its pages, and blindly attaching them to itself.

“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and I took the one most travelled by,” Aunt Lydia sardonically muses in The Testaments. “It was littered with corpses, as such roads are. But as you will have noticed, my own corpse is not among them.” Following the Margaret Atwood Society's 2022 MLA’s panel, "Wilderness (and Other) Tips: Concepts of Survival in Atwood’s Works," the 2023 edition of Margaret Atwood Studies will have the same theme.

Unfeeling: Call for Academic Papers

updated: 
Monday, January 10, 2022 - 3:00pm
Moveable Type, UCL Postgraduate Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 22, 2022

‘Unfeeling’ in relation to literature may evoke thoughts about depictions of cold-hearted characters, or repressive worlds in dystopian literature. It may also evoke the supposedly “emotionless” character of disinterested responses to art and literature, and of data-driven distant reading techniques. Affect and reader-response theories tell us that our feelings matter when we read, but which feelings have historically been prioritised and at whose expense?
