deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2016

The conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. The impetus comes partly from a survey of what is currently in the field: it is impossible to read the work of Junot Diaz and Edwidge Danticat, Robert Hass and Jorie Graham, Dave Eggers and Jhumpa Lahiri without seeing that, for all these authors, the reference frame is no longer simply the United States, but a larger, looser, more contextually varied set of coordinates, populated by laboring bodies, migrating faiths, generational sagas, memories of war, as well as the accents of unforgotten tongues, the taste and smell of beloved foods and spices.

An International Conference on “SOCIETY, LITERATURE & MULTILINGUALISM ” to be held on 16th and 17th December 2016 in Pune, India.

Language has been the first sign of human evolution. Looking at our journey from pictorial symbols to the diverse multingual society we live in today, language forms an important anchor in this development. 

Language has marked our progress as a civilization. Today, the world is coming closerand distances are getting shorter. Globalization, cultural openness, increased interaction
and proliferation of the internet has made multilingualism the norm, to the extent that studies show that multilingual speakers outnumber monolingual speakers today.

  Literature from the Antipodes has become increasingly influential. The New Zealand writers Janet Frame, Katherine Mansfield, Keri Hulme, Alan Duff; Australian writers Colleen McCullough, Joan Lindsay, and Miles Franklin are only a few of the prominent names. Significant antipodal literature has recently explored themes of colonial versus native cultures, nation building, indigenous culture and nature versus imposed Western vision of what should be.

This panel for the next ASLE conference seeks to offer a range of explorations of environmental and ecological themes in comics and graphic novels. Whereas the conference’s “Rust/Resistance” special topic (http://www.asle.org/wp-content/uploads/ASLE-2017-CFP.pdf) should provide cohesion to the panel, papers that expand the study of comics and graphic novels from any environmental lens are also welcome. Among others, the panel will be concerned with several questions, such as: What particular forms of visualization do comics and graphic novels offer us as conduits to imagine the environment?

Rooted: Legacies of Recovery and (Re)Memory in Cultural Production of the Black Diaspora

“To be rooted is perhaps the most important and least recognized need of the human soul.”—Simone Weil

Coolies and the Legacy of Indentureship

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

At the “East Indians in the Caribbean Conference” in Trinidad in 1979, Sam Selvon disarmingly titled his opening address “Three into One Can’t Go—East Indian, Trinidadian or West Indian.” He presented the contradictions apparent in competing discourses of identification as the descendants of Indian indentured labourers sought to define themselves in their national and regional contexts. Selvon’s underlying question of how (formerly) indentured labourers establish a sense of belonging in their new environment is applicable to other sites of indentureship like Guyana, Jamaica, Mauritius, Suriname, and Fiji. Another identifying label that should be added to Selvon’s triad is coolie, a pejorative that some Indians have sought to reclaim.

Taking Drugs Literally — Troping the Human and Turning a Phrase

Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

A satirical post on a bulletin board in a hallway of a university arts building condemns the literary genius — citing Shakespeare, Coleridge, Yeats, Baudelaire, Poe, Hemingway, the Beats, and others — for the use of performance-enhancing drugs, proposing that we take anti-doping measures to cull the canon of those who would cheat at their craft.  Jesting aside, however, such satire points not only toward the near-ubiquity of psychotropic plant use to the literary imagination, but also to the cultural expectation placed upon the artist to trope, to turn the mind as well as the word.

Medieval Makars Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

In studying the work of the medieval Scottish makars, the consideration of the relationship between Scotland and England is a crucial part of establishing a distinctly Scottish expression of nationhood. Though there is much to discuss regarding the tensions that arise between these two countries in particular, this panel aims to explore the notion of difference within the British Isles on a broader scale, encouraging the study of resistance to the English literary hegemony, as articulated by voices of other bordering nations.

In his Specters of Marx, first published in France a year before South Africa’s first free elections, Jacques Derrida wrote that "the historic violence of Apartheid can always be treated as a metonymy. In its past as well as in its present. By diverse paths . . . one can always decipher through its singularity so many other kinds of violence going on in the world. At once part, cause, effect, example . . . what is happening there translates to what takes place here, always here, wherever one is and wherever one looks, closest to home."
