World Literature as Book History
In recent years, numerous instances of anti-Black violence have brought to light a long, complex history of institutional racism and violence in the United States. At the same time, these events have inspired collective action and consciousness across the globe, prompting communities to recognize their own histories of racism, racial inequality, and discrimination as well as their manifestations in contemporary society. In the Latin American context, the effects of conquest and colonization have played an especially significant role in the shaping of social and cultural histories, and identity representations.
Scholarly Editing, begun again after a four year hiatus, publishes essays on the theory, practice, and pedagogy of scholarly editing, as well as reviews and micro-editions of understudied authors and texts that reflect our diverse and multifaceted cultural heritage. The journal intends to represent contributions from all countries and cultures and across disciplines, including but not restricted to educators, researchers, scholars, historians, archivists, curators, editors, information professionals, students, and digital humanists.
The proposed anthology aims to compile essays from various disciplines in the field of South Asian Studies. The compilation introduces an academic discourse on cultural studies about the region. Cultural Studies is predominantly contemporary in focus in its academic orientation. Contemporaneous is also about how the past appears in its very connections with the present ideas and facts. In the context of the above propositional statements the focus of the book is about the nature of Cultural Studies in South Asia.

Beyond the Anglocentric Fantastic
28th – 30th April 2021
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.

Muslim Writing, Writing Muslimness in Europe: Transcultural Literary Approaches
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 graduate students in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Georgetown University would like to invite graduate students to send abstracts for the Graduate Portuguese and Hispanic Symposium 2021 (GRAPHSY).

Paper and poster presentations are welcome on a wide range of topics within the fields of Hispanic linguistics and literatures. This year our goal is to promote a dialogue on the effects of the current global crisis on linguistics and literature, focusing our attention on how to overcome this impact.
Call for Pakistani Stories: Fiction and Creative Nonfiction
Deadline: January 15, 2021
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, 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?
Interested authors are strongly encouraged to submit quality articles for review and publication. All articles judged suitable for consideration will be reviewed in a double blind peer review process.
