James Shea & Janelle Adsit / ACLA 2017 (Utrecht, July 6-9)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

In light of recent scholarship on the cultural history of American creative writing programs, such as Mark McGurl's The Program Era: Postwar Fiction and the Rise of Creative Writing (2011) and Eric Bennett's Workshops of Empire: Stegner, Engle, and American Creative Writing during the Cold War (2015), we invite papers on postcolonial responses to creative writing as a globalized discipline. Perspectives from a wide variety of fields are welcome, including comparative literature, cultural studies, empire studies, new media, pedagogy, postcolonialism, and transnationalism.

Representing Poverty and Precarity in a Postcolonial World

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:51pm
Association for Anglophone Postcolonial Studies (GAPS)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 31, 2016

Poverty and precarity are among the most pressing social issues of our day. The last fifteen years have seen not only an ever widening gap between rich and poor across the globe as well as an exponential growth in the number of border subjects – refugees, asylum seekers and illegal migrants –, but also a steady growth of fictional and non-fictional representations of disenfranchised groups and individuals. This correlates with an intensification of research into the visual and narrative forms of these representations. For its 2017 conference, GAPS invites panels and individual papers addressing conceptualisations of poverty and precarity and investigating the ethics and aesthetics of representing poverty and precarity across the postcolonial world.

The Delusional Self or the Artful Self

Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:52pm
ASECS 2017, March 30-April 2, Minneapolis
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Whether as a self in motion, a delusional self, or a pensive self, the construction and representation of the “self” is central to the 18C.  The scrutiny of self-representation has been taken up through the lens of rhetoric, literary genres, gender, modernity, politics, and history, to name but a few scholarly undertakings. This panel seeks to explore  self-representation as spectacle, performance, testimonial, revelation, and/or deliverance, be they evident in the printed word or in the visual and fine arts. Contributions across disciplines and geographies examining representations of the self are welcome. The use of visual aids is encouraged.

ACLA 2017 – Crossing the Anglo-Hispanic Divide: Modernist Women Writers and Artists beyond Frontiers

updated: 
Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:52pm

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

Between approximately 1880 and 1945, women involved in modernist and avant-garde circles frequently crossed the cultural and linguistic frontiers dividing the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds—in Europe, the Americas, the Caribbean, and across the Atlantic. Driven by crucial historical and political events such as World War I and Word War II, the Mexican Revolution, and the Spanish Civil War, as well as by reasons of artistic, literary, and aesthetic exploration, many women writers and artists decided, or saw themselves forced, to go beyond frontiers. Indeed, some remained permanently ‘in transit’ across national and other sorts of boundaries, experiencing the trauma of exile.

Entangled Poetics: Mediating Ecology

updated: 
Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 1:49pm
ACLA 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 23, 2016

This is a call for The American Comparative Literature Association's 2017 Annual Meeting, which will take place at Utrecht University in Utrecht, the Netherlands July 6-9, 2017. It means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow’s notion of entanglement, i.e., a “condition of overlapping recurrences,” the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena.

Roundtable: Despair in the Middle Ages

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Despair, in medieval thought, existed at the intersection of a number of discourses. It was at once a theological state defined by the rejection of divine grace; a deadly sin of slothful torpor, when folded into the category of acedia; a melancholia caused by humoral imbalances; and a type of emotional suffering endured by heartsick lovers.

 ‘Walvis Baai, Luderitz, Lobito, Luanda, Douala, Port Limbe, Bonny, Port Harcourt, Onne, Lagos, Cotonou, Lome, Tema...’ This list comes from the newly established website 'Ports and Ships: Shipping and Harbour News out of Africa' which provides a useful reference point for thinking about port cities in Africa and the spider web of connections shipping routes establish with ports in the global south and beyond. Port cities manage the relation between sea and land and facilitate the movement of people, animals, commodities and ideas across continents, among countries, and between hemispheres.
