Texts, Contexts, and Subtexts: Charlotte Perkins Gilman in Her Time

Charlotte Perkins Gilman Society CFP American Literature Association (ALA) 28th Annual Conference
May 25-28, 2017

Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s articles, letters, papers, and library underscore a central quality of her diverse and prolific career: her works were deeply engaged with the social and scientific milieus of her time. An avid reader, enthusiastic learner, and active member within her own intellectual communities, Gilman often reached out to those whose work she admired – as well as to those whose work she found lacking. Through her lectures, publications, and correspondence, Gilman impacted a broad cross-section of scholarly and literary discourses.

'I think my personages could be reactivated if the times were right: I hope so' --Anita Brookner

17-18 March, 2017

Keynote speakers: Associate Professor Patricia Juliana Smith (Hofstra University) and Professor Peter McPhee (University of Melbourne)

The work of Anita Brookner occupies an ambiguous place in the literary field. Brookner has a cult status, was a Booker-Prize winner and best-selling novelist, and yet her work received what she herself deemed 'censorious' reviews and limited critical attention. Brookner's death was accompanied by conflicted accolades that appeared to celebrate her life while restating the predictable (and vexatious) reading of her identity as a lonely, single woman.

Transatlantic Shell Shock--Deadline Extended

University of North Georgia Press
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Although the phenomenon of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock (a term that this volume understands as denoting specifically mental trauma unique to World War I), greatly influenced both British and American literary modernism, the trauma, and its reception, was different on each side of the Atlantic, both in its scale and its quality. This peer-reviewed comparative collection, under contract with the University of North Georgia Press, seeks essays on both British and American literary and cultural representations of World War I trauma, particularly shell shock. Essays that compare and contrast the American and British experiences and representations of shell shock are particularly welcome, and will be given special consideration.

American Children’s Poetry and its Audiences

Children's Literature Society of American Literature Associaiton
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 10, 2017

The Children’s Literature Society of the American Literature Association seeks abstracts for papers to be presented at the 28th Annual Conference of the American Literature Association in May 25-28, 2017 discussing any aspect of the audiences for children’s poetry. Poetry is the genre that has traditionally blurred the distinction between child and adult audiences. Many acclaimed poets for adults also write for young audiences, and young people perform poetry written for adult audiences, often responding to those poems by creating and performing poems of their own.
