As the popularity of mythical creatures in films and literature grows, there is one creature that remains prominent: the dragon. Dragons have become most visible recently in the cinematic versions of The Hobbit and in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones Series). However, there are other films, such as Dragonslayer (1981), Reign of Fire (2002), Dragonheart (1996), and the How to Train Your Dragon series (2010-2019), and numerous adult and children’s literature series that feature dragons.

CfP for Edited Collection on Jesmyn Ward

Maria Torres-Quevedo
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 28, 2021

Jesmyn Ward is a two-time winner of the National Book Award, winner of the 2013 National Book Critics Circle Award, and a recipient of the MacArthur “genius grant.” Known for her critically acclaimed fiction and non-fiction, Ward’s lyrical narratives of Black life, home, and family in Louisanna’s Gulf Coast are visceral and evocative. Moreover, while her work is often set in the same geographical region, the concerns explored within it stretch beyond the shores of the Gulf Coast, extending if not physically then cosmologically toward the Caribbean and the African continent. Yet, despite the critical celebration and geopolitical breadth of her work, Ward remains remarkably under-studied, particularly outside the United States.

The long nineteenth century witnessed the rapid expansion and modernization of cities around the globe. It is often also heralded, by critics working with Anglo-American literature, at least, as the starting point for studies of the fantastic. Nonetheless, despite the claims of critics such as Rosemary Jackson and Stephen Prickett that modern fantasy is, in part, a reaction to industrialization,[1] few projects have explored nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century fantasies’ engagement with the urban, and fewer still have attempted to address the intertwinement of fantasy and the city across cultures, a gap this volume seeks to fill.

Human experience is marked by movement and change. In cultural production we see mobility and mutability in light of progress, class mobility, and a shifting episteme. In literature and the arts these terms transform into migrations, monsters and character growth—in genres ranging from the epic to science fiction, or from the picaresque to cowboy poetry. Considering mobility and mutability, the following questions arise: How do mobility and mutability mark the evolution of life and the arts? How do we understand intermediality and dystopian futures in these terms? Why do founding myths of peoples around the world reflect exodus or displacement? How do terms mutate in the formation or new fields of study?

Children’s literature as a field is not bounded by geography, and so critical discussions of the children’s literary tradition outside of a US context appear frequently in journals ranging from The New England Reading Association, to The Lion and the Unicorn, and The Reading Teacher. In fact, Children’s Literature Association Quarterly dedicated the Winter 2018 issue to “Migration, Refugees, and Diaspora in Children's Literature.” Despite the abundance of critical work, pedagogical resources such as Evelyn B. Freeman and Barbara A.

HUNGER AND WASTE

Volume 39, Number 2, Fall 2021

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.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 10, 2020

This panel aims to examine fictional texts which represent an alternate past or future in order to resist dominant narratives. Papers which address the following questions (and others) are welcome:

How does speculative fiction which presents an alternate past or future allow us to critique the present?

How does imagining "what if" prompt us to question "what next?"

How do we use possible worlds theory to understand what is possible in the world, or unnatural narratology to interrogate what is "natural"?

How do Afro-, Indigenous, and/or Latinx futurisms, in particular, work as part of larger movements of social action?

Panel Title: Changing Perspectives: Adjusting American Literature Lenses

 

Due to the Covid Lockdown this past year, the ALA 2020 conference was canceled. However, we have been informed that a 2021 conference will be held in Boston. To help reconcile the lost panels from this year's canceled conference, the ALA has reached out and offered for those panels that were accepted to reply. While this panel was accepted for the 2020 conference, we have since then lost one of our presenters. Therefore, we would like to extend an invite to anyone interested in joining our panel. Our panel description is:
