updated: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 10:58am
NEMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable focuses on the perennial issue faced by so many teachers of early American literature: how to make the field interesting, stimulating, and engaging for students who might otherwise avoid it on account of its challenging language, detailed historical contexts, and often lengthy or unfamiliar content. The roundtable will discuss various strategies aimed at increasing student engagement with early American literature, and it may also address other ongoing, unresolved concerns of teachers and scholars of early American literature.

Abstracts of 150-200 words must be submitted through the NEMLA website. 

Include a brief (<50 word) bio.

Modernism in the Periphery of the Continent

updated: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 10:59am
ACLA 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

This seminar builds on the premise that modernist movement in arts, media and culture was at some level geographical, and that in certain geographies there were complex reactions to the European modernism. Culturally and politically very turbulent—because of earth-shattering events at the time like the demise of two old empires, WWI and WW2—at the inception, height and aftermath of the modernist movement, Southeast Europe is one such area where one sees a range of reactions from extreme avant-garde attitudes to failed aspirations.

Confluences and Conduits

Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 11:04am
Sewanee Medieval Colloquium
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 14, 2016

In the twelfth century, Hugh of Saint Victor compared the temporal world to “flood water sweeping past,” and Bernard of Cluny imagined it to be unfixed and unstable like “streams of water.” Linking apocalyptic imaginings and temporal anxieties with the flux of liquid landscapes was not uncommon in the Middle Ages. But medieval waterways also gave life. This panel seeks to explore the generative nature of rivers, channels, and oceans at the edge of human experience, exploring the dynamism of fluid liminality.

The Dark Sides of the Law in Common Law Countries

International and Interdisciplinary Conference, Paris (France), June 15-17, 2017

The Panthéon-Assas University “Law and Humanities” research centre (a part of CERSA) is pleased to announce its first international conference to be held in Paris (France) on June 15-17, 2017.

CFP “Refugees and Literature”

updated: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016 - 11:00am
Sladja Blazan, Wuerzburg University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2016

Perhaps nothing dominates our current times like the global refugee situation. The sheer number of people seeking a safe place to live is overwhelming. As this is happening in an information society, a large part of the global population is conditioned by media images of refugee camps and refugee routes. Most people in this world are currently either refugees themselves or witness to a refugee crisis. How does this affect literature?

Animism in a Planetary Frame

updated: 
Saturday, September 17, 2016 - 3:47pm
ACLA Annual Meeting, Utrecht, July 6-9 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

Animism has been making something of a comeback. While animism remains an umbrella term for a range of local practices which invest non-human matter with spirit, recent work (Garuba, Harvey, Rooney, Taussig, Vivieros de Castro) has emphasised this investment as a relational way of being with “other-than-human persons.” In light of our growing—if continually disavowed—awareness of ecological crisis, the purpose of this panel is to suggest that “new animism” has an insistently “planetary” (Spivak, Wenzel) or “cosmopolitical” (Stengers) bearing.

New Work in Novel Studies Symposium

Novel Theory Across the Disciplines/ Mahindra Humanities Center, Harvard University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 17, 2016

Call for Papers: New Work in Novel Studies

A symposium hosted by the Mahindra Humanities Center, Harvard University

December 7, 2016

From its earliest forms to its contemporary iterations, the novel remains a radically capacious and evolving genre. As the dominant form of modern literature, the novel assumes various overlapping functions as an aesthetic object, cultural artifact, historical text, and conceptual resource. At the same time, novelistic conventions such as plot structure, narrative technique, and characterization shape and inform scholarly research across an array of disciplines.
