African American Folklore: On the Foundation of Hip Hop is the first collection of critical essays that will explore the African American folklore roots of hip hop. Besides presenting recent scholarship on the language and narrative strategies that give form and structure to hip hop music, the collection has the potential to extend studies of the Oral Tradition into Hip Hop scholarship.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Spiral Film and Philosophy Conference: “Love and Death”
May 12-13, 2017
The modern fact is that we no longer believe in this world. We do not even believe in the events which happen to us, love, death, as if they only half concerned us. It is not we who make cinema; it is the world which looks to us like a bad film.

Mobility and Space in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe
Friday 23rd June 2017, University of Oxford
The application of spatial paradigms to the study of late medieval and early modern societies is now well underway. In contrast, the so-called ‘mobility turn’ has struggled to find its way from the social sciences to the humanities and, in particular, to disciplines concerned with the study of the past. This conference proposes to bring the two together by exploring how everyday mobility contributed to the shaping of late medieval and early modern spaces, and how spatial frameworks affected the movement of people in pre-modern Europe.
The OEB Literary Society plans to host two panels at the American Literature Association in Boston, May 2017. We invite prospective participants to submit proposals relating to any aspect of Butler’s life and work. We especially encourage papers/panels addressing Butler’s influence in the work of contemporary artists across genres, and would like to devote one of the panels to this topic. Please email abstracts of 300 words to Matthew Mullins at firstname.lastname@example.org
