The MLA Committee on Information Technology invites abstracts on the history of digital labor for a guaranteed panel at the MLA conference in Philadelphia from January 5-8, 2017.

As labor-intensive projects continue to dominate the funding landscape of the digital humanities, scholars are beginning to ask important questions about the labor involved in such project. Who is doing this work? What are the working conditions? How are these labors credited or erased? By recovering stories and contributions by forgotten laborers—by insisting that students receive some compensation and that overseas transcription farms are recognized for what they are—digital humanists are beginning to attend to important questions of social justice.

Chawton House Library

Two hundred and ten years after Charlotte Smith's death and nearly a decade after the publication of The Works of Charlotte Smith, Smith scholarship is coming of age. The conference Placing Charlotte Smith will convene at the beautiful Chawton House Library to explore the latest research on Smith and her places. What are we learning about her place in the canon, or in the development of various genres? What sort of commentary does her placement of characters in history offer? What attitudes do her works demonstrate about place and the idea of a polis/nation? Where are the places Smith is or might be memorialized? What are the various meanings of the natural place she explores in her fiction, poetry, journalism, and children's literature?

CALL FOR PAPERS: Journal of Graphic Novels and Comics Special Issue
Freaked and Othered Bodies in Comics

How do we define 'normal'? Quite literally it comes from the Latin norma meaning 'carpenter's square'. Straight. And 'abnormal'? That's from the Greek, anomalos, and the Latin abnormis, meaning 'monstrosity'. We leap cognitively, thanks to those boy-fucking, poison-guzzling, sheet-wearing Olympians right to 'monster.' Normal? Square. Abnormal? Monstrous."

— from the Eisner-award-winning and Harvey-award-rejecting comic, Sex Criminals (#12, Sept. 2015), by Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky.

What role do religion and secularization play in the rise of the novel? This seminar takes up the insights of postsecular studies to help scholars explore this question in new ways: in Misty Anderson's words, reading religion into rather than out of history, and as Danièle Hervieu-Léger puts it, attending to signs of religion's profound and often surprising transformations in modernity.

Borders are constructed to regulate the movement of people, resources, and information, as well as to structure and appraise different forms of knowledge. They can also be used to isolate the causes of adverse health effects, protect equitable standards, recognize different health needs, and preserve the right to self-determination and privacy.
