EXTENDED DEADLINE: British Women Writers Conference at UNC-Chapel Hill, June 21-24, 2017

British Women Writers Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2017

For its 25th annual meeting, the British Women Writers Conference invites papers and panel proposals considering the theme of “Generations.” As we look back on a quarter-century of feminist scholarship and practice within British Studies, we want to celebrate those who have defined the British Women Writers Association’s past and nurture those who will shape its future. Of course, even within literary traditions or scholarly networks, generational transitions are rarely ever easy or smooth. Such transitions may be accompanied by paradigm shifts, struggles to be heard, or difficulty letting go. We therefore welcome investigations into the complexities of generational exchange and transition in women’s writing.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Much of Walker Percy’s fiction and non-fiction writing is social commentary. At least two novels - Love in the Ruins and The Thanatos Syndrome - may be called dystopian or post-apocalyptic.  His numerous essays on race relations, on secular materialism, on misguided “self-help” books in a postmodern world seem to indicate that he suspected 20th century America was a dystopia itself.  Additionally, Walker Percy’s personal life included social action in his local community and through the Catholic Church.  Proposals addressing the SAMLA 88 theme "Utopia/Dystopia: Whose Paradise Is It?" in Walker Percy’s fiction, non-fiction, or life are welcome.  Send 300-word abstracts, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Dr.

               Alternately celebrated and pilloried, mother figures have been assigned contradictory roles throughout the histories of English-speaking societies. Reflecting the power structures and conflicts of their times, they have been portrayed as pillars of society, providing material and emotional security, and models of sacrifice, or vilified for failing to perpetuate the expected values of individual responsibility and self-control. Nearly a century after winning political emancipation and almost half a century after the historic struggles for sexual emancipation—which yielded unequal results from one country to another—, women in all segments of society in the USA, the Republic of Ireland, the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth are still regard

The Medieval “Freak Show”: Putting the Monstrous on Display in the Middle Ages

 

People and creatures perceived as monstrous or wondrous are often put on display for profit or exploitation. At times, this exhibitionism presents itself as “education.” What has popularly been called the “freak show” achieved its height via the emergence of working class entertainments that transformed visual cultures in the nineteenth century, as exemplified in P.T. Barnum’s circus and its sideshows, but also including innovations such as the stereoscope and the panorama, which prepared the rise of cinema and, later, television.
