deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 2, 2017

American Literature Association Annual Conference, May 25-28, 2017, Boston, MA
_Zero K_ (2016), the sixteenth novel by Don DeLillo, is, for some readers, a return to form and familiar themes—especially death—while for others, it extends DeLillo’s body of work into cryogenics and post-millennial ground. This panel will consider any aspect of _Zero K_, including, but not limited to, the ways in which it fits into or departs from DeLillo’s oeuvre or “late period” DeLillo; science and technology in the novel; genre and genre theory; close readings, voice, style, language, and structure; post-colonial readings; and/or relationship to the literary canon or popular culture.

As observed, in today’s setting, television is considered the main source of entertainment especially to children.  In a world where time needs to be used productively, a parent must observe time efficiency to still guide the children in all their aspects of life. This paper aims to measure the extent of parental monitoring given by parents while their children watch television and the perceived effects on children’s behavior. In this light, to determine the said aspects, the researchers have made a questionnaire for the parents to find out the frequency, parenting style and the perceived behavior of the children in terms of action and language used.

Schools of thought labeled Speculative Realism (SR) and Object Oriented Ontology (OOO) have recently honed as well as critiqued postmodernism’s conceptualizations of the relationship between (human) consciousness and (nonhuman) objects.  SR and OOO have, in turn, been criticized for their often radically speculative and academic methodology divorced from concrete ethical and political concerns that include issues of class, gender, race, and sexuality.

Scholars of American religion are well familiar with the problem that, in most standard narratives of American history, religion tends to play a minor and neglected role. A similar problem has been noted in the study of American literature. Scholars of American religions have worked to and may continue to help correct both of these problems.

CFP - The Medieval Brain Workshop, University of York, UK, March 10th and 11th, 2017

As we research aspects of the medieval brain, we encounter complications generated by medieval thought and twenty-first century medicine and neurology alike. Our understanding of modern-day neurology, psychiatry, disability studies, and psychology rests on shifting sands. Not only do we struggle with medieval terminology concerning the brain, but we have to connect it with a constantly-moving target of modern understanding. Though we strive to avoid interpreting the past using presentist terms, it is difficult – or impossible – to work independently of the framework of our own modern understanding. This makes research into the medieval brain and ways of thinking both challenging and exciting.
