deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 31, 2017

This summer marks twenty years since J.K Rowling published her first Harry Potter novel in the U.S. Since then, readership of the novels has expanded continually; there has never been a more successful book series (450 million copies sold and counting) or a more culturally prominent literary phenomenon. “Muggle” is now in the Oxford dictionary, and still today the series holds a venerable place on the New York Times Bestseller List.

NEW DEADLINE - 1/15/2018

The topic of violence has been of significant importance in Spanish American literature. Brutal dictatorships, revolutionary wars, drug-related violence, and guerrilla warfare have left a strong imprint on contemporary Spanish American literature. Despite this, there are few literary works presented through the point of view of the perpetrator of violence and told in his or her voice. Consequently, few studies investigate the construction of these voices and analyze the effect of this narrative design in the literature of violence.

The Lincoln Humanities Journal is requesting submissions for its 6th special issue, to be published in December 2018, on the topic of Alternative Realities: Myths, Lies, Truths, and Half-Truths. Contributors are invited to examine (a) the truths of what is fact and what is fiction; (b) the real, the fake and their representations: art, illusion and history; (c) the misuse of deception; and (d) the ethical, cultural, political, and social ambivalence toward myths, lies, truths, and half-truths.

Call for Papers: Francophone Louisiana’s International Relations (April 1, 2018)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 9:30am
American Council for Québecois Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Though often represented as a marginalized or isolated region of the Francophone world, on the one hand, as well as distinct from the rest of the United States, on the other, Louisiana has been situated for more than three centuries at the crossroads of countless cultural, linguistic, and institutional exchanges. Alongside these realities highlighted in recent historiography, contemporary efforts to promote French and Francophones cultures of Louisiana have benefited from numerous international partnerships. In order to explore the international relations and transnational dynamics that have shaped Louisiana from the colonial period until now, we are pleased to accept abstracts for presentations relevant to Francophone Louisiana.

CFP for Special Issue of Journal of Narrative Theory: "Refugee Literatures: Migration, Crisis, and the Humanities"

updated: 
Friday, October 13, 2017 - 12:28pm
JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 1, 2018

JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory invites submissions exploring the life and work of refugees as they engage the humanities today. Just as the mid-twentieth century refugee crisis shaped the emergence and development of aesthetic and theoretical movements around World War II, the mass movement of displaced peoples today stems from a convergence of forces concomitantly reshaping art and humanistic thought, from economic globalization to climate change, neoliberalism, neoimperialism, resurgent nationalisms, violence against black, latinx, Muslim, and queer peoples, and the waning securities of sovereignty and citizenship.

Beckett in International Culture and Politics

updated: 
Friday, October 13, 2017 - 12:28pm
Samuel Beckett Today/ Aujourd'hui
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 6, 2017

Samuel Beckett Today/Aujourd’hui solicits proposals for articles in French or English on Beckett’s global and political reach. More than the question of Beckett’s international influence, we ask scholars to consider how Beckett’s work provides aesthetic models for artists seeking to address political conflict, to break the straightjacket of imposed artistic forms, or to represent forms of human violence. Does Beckett’s work help or hinder artists in formulating a political aesthetic or navigating specific political demands and situations? Does Beckett’s work inform conceptions of committed art?
