This special issue of Administory focuses on the relationship between different traditions of literature or art, on the one hand, and of state administration, on the other. By highlighting the "story" in Administory, it seeks to unpack aesthetic configurations manifest in literary and artistic works engaging with bureaucratic topics and spaces, set in (or against) a variety of historical backgrounds. Drawing on literature, but also on film or other arts to highlight different administrative cultural contexts and then contrasting them in their specificity is the goal of the edition.

PAMLA 2022: Open Educational Resources (OER) in the French and Francophone Classroom (roundtable)
The use of Open Educational Resources (OER) has grown steadily due to the rising cost of textbooks and the unstable financial situations of students, further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the relevance and authenticity of conventionally published materials is often called into question. As a result, instructors increasingly turn to OER to meet these needs.

CFP Special Issue: Jean Rhys and Modernist ConnectionsIn the 21st century, we no longer think of modernism as one cultural experience. If having a culture dramatically changed overnight and having to come up with new ways to live, in every sphere of life, constitutes modernity, then those trafficked from Africa to the Caribbean faced their own experience of it. Jean Rhys was born and formed in the Caribbean, and in reinventing herself in Europe as a writer, crafted her own modern voice out of many strands of experience and understanding, particularly as a white writer growing up in a Black post-slavery society.
Recent essays and articles in publications like The Atlantic and Vox have voiced growing concerns about the increasing elasticity of “trauma.” Even so, those same texts note the value of recognizing others’ trauma and of responding ethically to their stories. This worth is particularly evident in the wake of the many Covid-related traumatic events and the most recent racial reckonings (that may or may not have occurred) in the US and around the world.

The Comparative Literature section of the MMLA invites proposals for papers that engage with any aspect of this year's conference theme, "Post-Now." Building on the conference CFP's proposal to discuss the role of humanities in imagining a different future, this section asks these corollary questions: What is the role of comparative literature in these changing times? How can comparative perspectives and critical theory confront the most critical challenges in the 21st century? How should we imagine our roles as teachers and scholars of comparative literature when national and ethical boundaries are being deconstructed and reconstructed?
In a rapid changing world that we live nowadays, interdisciplinary studies are at crossroads between tradition and innovation.Scholarly activities are at the intersection of computing or digital technologies and the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences. Studies on common practices of research and analysis in the discipline is now questioned in terms of the over whelming spread of technology.
We hereby invite proposals of original articles related to the general theme of Cultural Intertexts, an academic journal of Literature and Cultural Studies, ISSN 2393-0624, E-ISSN 2393-1078.
The editors will consider for publication papers which tackle strategies of representation and of (inter)textual construction emerging from the dialogic relation between:
- literature and the historical and cultural context of text production;
- distribution and consumption;
- literature and other arts (music, film, visual arts, etc.) or sciences (linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology, history, sociology and political sciences, internet and new technologies, etc.);
