Çankaya University Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences is looking for original and well-researched interdisciplinary papers at the intersection of comparative literature, literary studies, literature and translation, language and translation studies, linguistics, foreign language education, translator education, and theory and cultural studies that fall within the scope of the Journal. The mission of the Journal is to facilitate a more expanded and participatory academic discussion on the theoretical and/or applied scholarly work under its scope, and to inform scholars and public about recent developments in these fields.
The global and digital connectivity of recent years has transformed creative writing infrastructure and practice around the world. Recent decades have seen a number of critical and popular publications exploring the history and practice of creative writing, from Marc McGurl’s “The Program Era: Postwar Fiction and the Rise of Creative Writing” (2011) to Lisa Jaillant’s Literary Rebels: A History of Creative Writing in Anglo-American Universities (2022). Yet, as these titles suggest, the critical focus has been on US and UK courses.
This panel explores and theorizes storytelling strategies used in Black (African and Afro), Indigenous, and Multi-Ethnic Futurist art and social movements, including literature, poetry, film, music, and visual and digital arts. These alternate Futurisms shift the impetus of the creative energy from discarding the past to engaging complex senses of temporality and intertextuality that often center memory, history, folklore, urban legends, and identity.

A note from the Editors-in-Chief:
‘EcoGothic from postcolonial societies has long pointed towards the need to reconceptualise the relation between humans and their environment as central to the project of decolonisation.’

Prisons and Poetry (Seminar)
Northeast Modern Language Association 2024 - Boston, MA (March 7-10)
“It is hard,” writes incarcerated poet Etheridge Knight, “to make a poem in prison.” And yet, poetry has long been a major form of literary production in prisons around the world. From Oscar Wilde to Mahmoud Darwish, celebrated poets have reflected on experiences of incarceration in their work. In the context of the U.S. mass incarceration, poets such as Jimmy Santiago Baca and Reginald Dwayne Betts have risen to fame during or after their imprisonment. Poetry has also been an important element of writings by many political prisoners, such as Wole Soyinka, Assata Shakur, and Leonard Peltier.
Verge will be sponsoring Global Asias panels and roundtables at the upcoming AAS and AAAS conferences. Our goal is to help generate and support work that straddles or otherwise navigates the differences and overlaps between Asian Studies, Asian American Studies, and Asian Diaspora Studies as intellectual formations and interdisciplines.
The panel, "Representing Ecocides in Settler Colonial Arts and Literatures", will be organised at the 2024 NeMLA Conference, from March 7-10, 2024, in Boston, MA.

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
Panel: Half Knowledge: Identity, Philosophical Difficulty and the Remains of Value
Chair(s): Leo Kadokura (University of Oxford)
The proposed Special Issue of Journal of Asia-Pacific Pop Culture (web of science indexed; https://muse.jhu.edu/journal/720) aims to examine the everyday existential struggles in societies triggered by the exceptionalism of state-capital nexus. It will analyze the epistemes of violence, structures of rampant coloniality in different manifestations, extraction of lands, bodies, and life that underpin the self-expansionist project of cannibalistic capitalism.
Please consider submitting your proposal to the PAMLA 2023 panel “A Leap Over: Formation and Dissolution of Urban Boundaries”.

Undisciplining the Victorian Classroom (UVC) announces a call for assessments that model inclusive, antiracist, antiableist, and anticolonial assessment practices for teaching the nineteenth century. Anyone with relevant professional interests is encouraged to apply, but the organizers are especially interested in submissions from early-career scholars and those with backgrounds that are underrepresented in Victorian Studies.
How do authors describe the sensory reality of war? What are the sounds of war, the smells of war (the textures, visuals, taste of war)? How are these described and how do they differ? These are questions that remain of interest to historians and literary scholars as we try to understand past events and representations of violence and conflict. From world wars to the war on climate change, our relationship with bodies and spaces is shifting and the sensorium carries these shifts. This panel is looking for abstracts interested in the senses and war across mediums (film, texts, art), whether these represent real or imagined conflicts.
Translation, Travel Writing, and Excess (Rountable)

Climate change and impending ecological crises make clear, we are running short of time. The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) argues that we have until 2030 to limit global warming to 1.5C. Assuming that the status quo endures, at the start of this conference, we will have fewer than six years remaining on that deadline to make significant changes. Much of the damage we now need to recover from is a direct result of a myopic view of time:the greed for quarterly profits and how much wealth an individual can accumulate during their own lifetime. But what if we could think of the future not as a scarcity of time, but an abundance?

Surplus Invisibility: Concentrated Spaces of the Displaced and Expelled
NeMLA 2024--Boston, MA March 7-10th, 2024
Abstract deadline: September 30th, 2023
Response deadline: October 15th, 2023
The concept of surplus is largely understood in economics as “the amount of resources that exceed the portion actually utilized”. Gramsci, when touching on this idea, focuses on the rise of capitalism. However, “surplus” can refer to a host of different fields. What happens when the “surplus” is used to define the lives of human beings?
