CFP Affinities #4 – What is Radical Imagination: Horizons beyond "The Crisis"
Edited by Alex Khasnabish and Max Haiven

The social crises of neoliberalism, so evident and provocative throughout the rest of the world, have finally come "home" to the global North in the form of a cataclysmic financial crisis wreaking havoc on the lives of people, workers and communities, intensifying already intolerable injustices and inequalities and justifying the intensification of surveillance, policing and militarization.

Teaching American Literature: A Journal of Theory and Practice

TALTP is still accepting articles for its Winter 2010 issue. We are looking for articles that offer new ways of teaching American literature, theoretical musings, and introductions to minor or lost authors. We are especially interested in articles that offer insights into teaching with such mega-anthologies as the Heath and Norton. Also important are articles exploring the use of the vast resources of the media and the Internet to teach American literature.

Psychopathology in American Literature (01/15/10; ALA, 05/27-05/30/2010)

Tuesday, December 8, 2009 - 9:15am
Adam Meehan

This call invites proposals for papers to be presented at the 2010 American Literature Association conference in San Francisco, CA, May 27-30.

In The Psychopathology of Everyday Life, Freud explains that "the border-line between the nervous, normal, and abnormal states is indistinct." Consequently, while phenomena such as forgetting, slips of the tongue, and other "mistakes" are generally seen by society as normal, one could argue that they are in fact the foundation for more menacing psychopathologies like paranoia, schizophrenia, personality disorders, or even homicidal behavior.

[UPDATE] EXTENSION Edward Upward -- Essay Collection

Tuesday, December 8, 2009 - 7:43am
Benjamin Kohlmann, University of Oxford

***NOTE: The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended until 8 February 2010.***

Spanning nearly eight decades, the work of Edward Upward (b.1903, d. February 2009) is without parallel in English letters. Upward's influence on the literature of the 'Auden generation' (from his quasi-Surrealist Mortmere fantasies to his political stories of the thirties) was outstanding; his life-long commitment to the Communist cause made him the moral authority for left-wing writers from the 1930s onwards. At the same time, Upward's own writings have sometimes been eclipsed by the works of the authors he influenced – most notably W.H. Auden and Christopher Isherwood.
