'Gendered Innovations in the Social Sciences'

7-9 November 2016, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia

What impact does women's limited presence in key fields of research have upon our capacity to grapple with social and political change? And if gender is ignored as an analytic category, can the social sciences make a meaningful contribution to understanding or resolving issues of gender inequality in society? 

Premodern Futurities: Speculative Objects and Prognostication in the Medieval World (Kalamazoo 2017)

Interpreting the medieval arts entails setting in motion forms of anachronism; within the arts we see complex negotiations of temporality, which themselves pose significant challenges to our understanding of historical objects. Scholars have been both resistant to and complicit in these forms, a challenge of historicism having been, to a greater or lesser extent, to unlearn certain histories in order to “restore” the contingency of a specific historical moment. For, indeed, medieval people theorized futures of their own. They refined procedures of prognostication and speculation, and, significantly, crafted aesthetic objects that imagined divergent futurities.

Perspectives on the Academic Job Interview

updated: 
Friday, July 1, 2016 - 11:52am
NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

The Academic job interview isn't a monolithic entity: each academic institution--ranging from research universities to community colleges--has its own processes. Learning to navigate these different environments is difficult, and job seekers can benefit from hearing from a wide range of stakeholders (administrators, departments chairs, junior faculty, etc.)

To that end, we are calling for a wide range of voices to join our roundtable and examine the academic job interview from a variety of perspectives.

Please submit brief abstracts (200 words) and a bio by Sep 30, 2016.

To submit, please use NeMLA's portal: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/login

The Quest for the Real: Nonfiction for Children and Teenagers

Bookbird: Journal of International Children's Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 30, 2017

Bookbird: A Journal of International Children’s Literature invites contributions for a special issue on “nonfiction for children and young adults.” While many children and teenagers prefer to read nonfiction for pleasure (from books of records to military history to sex education) the focus of research and writing about young readers skews extremely heavily towards fiction. Indeed Bookbird itself has not focused on nonfiction since 2003 and no winner or shortlisted candidate for the Hans Christian Andersen writing prize has ever been an author of nonfiction.

“Another Children’s Literature”: Writing by Children and Youth

Bookbird: Journal of International Children's Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 1, 2016

Bookbird: A Journal of International Children’s Literature invites contributions for a special issue on  “another children’s literature”—one created by children and youth themselves. Usually, “children’s literature” has been assumed to be literature written by adults for children. In this issue, however, we intend to focus on literature created by children and youth. While there has been some critical attention to the juvenilia of canonical authors and considerable educational and psychological interest in what children’s writing reveals about children, comparatively little attention has been paid to the literary dimensions of—and theoretical issues raised by—children’s and youths’ writing.
