ISLANDS AND TIME - ISLAND TEMPORALITIES IN THE CONTEXT OF ISLAND RESEARCH

updated: 
Monday, March 28, 2022 - 6:12pm
Narodna umjetnost journal (Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

In the context of the social sciences and humanities, research on islands from a variety of disciplines is primarily characterised by spatiality as a fundamental determinant of island cultures. The frequent emphasis on spatiality has resulted in representations of islands as constrained both in everyday life and geographically and marked by a historicised present and a belated modernity. In doing so, the transformative and dynamic character of culture has often been neglected, as well as the heterogeneity of the lived experience of island communities.

Crones, Crime, and the Gothic Conference

updated: 
Wednesday, March 16, 2022 - 2:01pm
Falmouth University, 10-11 June, 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

Older women have traditionally been portrayed negatively in folklore, fairy tales, literature and film, for example. Images of witches, evil stepmothers, shrivelled, bitter 'spinsters', and vindictive, bullying women abusing positions of power are rife in Western culture. Yet, perhaps things are changing. A new emphasis on the need to discuss and understand the menopause seems to be at the heart of this. This conference examines historical representations of the 'crone' in relation to crime and Gothic narratives. But it also looks ahead and globally to examine other types of discourses and representations.

In Edwidge Danticat’s short story “Without Inspection,” an undocumented Haitian immigrant, Arnold, dies from unsafe working conditions at a construction site in south Florida. In the news coverage about the event, the construction company and developer release a statement in which he is referred to as Ernesto Fernandez, probably from the false documents Arnold offered to be hired. Danticat’s story illustrates the blending of Caribbean cultures in the U.S. South through worksites and migration processes, centering labor and labor conditions in immigrant and refugee life.

The Society for the Study of Southern Literature invites papers on the South and science fiction for a panel at the South Atlantic Modern Language Association’s 94th Annual Conference from November 11-13, 2022 in Jacksonville, FL.

We welcome presentations that offer to 'expand' the canon of southern literature and science fiction itself, especially papers that focus on works by BIPOC, AAPI, or LGBTQ+ writers.

Violence and Autonomy: Indigenizing Speculative Fiction (PAMLA 2022)

updated: 
Friday, March 11, 2022 - 11:40am
Carlos Tkacz / University of Nevada, Las Vegas
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 15, 2022

Speculative fiction has become the space in which imaginings of the future proliferate not totally free of the specter of history but free from the fatalism that subaltern communities often are forced to cope with under the weight of that history. As such, Indigenous writers, both in the US and in the rest of the world, have turned to the genre as a way to construct futurisms of survivance and resistance. If the weight of history has and does manifest itself in violence, both physical and otherwise, then the question of autonomy is central, for violence is perhaps the most basic violation of the individual and the communal.

Jewish Los Angeles "Jewish Literature and Culture" panel at the Pacific Modern Languages AssociationNovember 11-13, 2022 From Boyle Heights to Hollywood, and from Santa Monica to the Valley, Los Angeles has been a site for fantastic projections, colonial encounters, and organized struggles for Jews “moving West” since the late 19th century. This panel explores how L.A. as the other “promised land” is figured in the writings, films, artworks, and music of Jewish Californians and immigrants.  From its settlement as a supposedly empty “virgin territory” to its more recent description as a city that has no memory of itself, Los Angeles is often stylized as a place without identity, history, or borders (Baudrillard, Mike Davis, Thom Andersen, Vanessa Place).

Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 7:02pm

Considering texts broadly as documentary, artistic, visual, aural, textile, performed, or inhabited, what new kinds and uses of evidence are recovering histories through texts? We especially invite underrepresented or interdisciplinary scholarship.

The panel will seek to develop our concept of editing for new kinds of evidence and build bridges between the ADE and MLA communities. Our aim is to foster conversation between people interested in traditional and non-traditional forms of editing and researchers who are making use of new or innovative editions and collections.

ENSFR Annual Conference, Lisbon 2022 — Short Fiction as World Literature

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 6:59pm
European Network for Short Fiction Research
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 3, 2022

In Death of a Discipline, Gayatri Spivak mentions the problematic identification of “literature” with the novel form in comparative literature (2005: 123). Her concern with our general blindness to non-hegemonic forms recalls the consternation frequently shown in short fiction criticism toward the enduring novel-centrism of literary studies. This conference aims to bring together scholars with an interest in examining this tension and the different ways in which it may extend to the field of world literature. But our goal is not to look at the short form once again in stark opposition to the novel.

Urban Ruins: Reframing Repair in Cities of the Global South (for MLA 2023)

updated: 
Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - 6:58pm
Rituparna Mitra / Emerson College
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

This panel examines literary and cultural urbanisms in the Global South in the context of reframing repair. Until recently, cities in the Global South have been examined mainly as models of crisis, dysfunction, and brokenness. The urgent work of repairing their imperfect conditions has, in turn, been perceived solely in terms of rapid and uneven development in official discourse. Scholars such as Ann Laura Stoler, Filip de Boeck, Ananya Roy, Achille Mbembe, and others, have instead urged us to rethink ruins, lacks, lags, and gaps as origin sites for emergent forms and practices that alter conditions of the possible.
