General Call: Persona Studies

Persona Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 3, 2017

Open call for art and articles on ANY topic related to the study of persona.

However, of particular interest to us at present is the recent attention to questions of authenticity and legitimacy in a post-truth, fake news era. The increasing polarisation of political and social views is heightening tensions in families, workplaces, and public spaces. The role of the persona, whether writ large by celebrities or produced for intimate, domestic networks, can provide us with critical insight into ways people perform their various identities for others.

The Forum on Language Change is accepting proposals on “Language Change: Global (Im-) migration and Linguistic Insecurity” for the 2018 MLA in New York City. With increased immigration to developed countries in recent decades we have seen a proliferation in the number of languages, cultures, ethnicities, religions, nationalities and countries represented by the immigrants.  We seek papers that examine how global migration has an impact on language at the individual and community level contributing to linguistic insecurity and other language-related changes, such as language maintenance, death, choice, lingua franca / ethnolects’ development and other phenomena resulting from migrant contact situations.  How is language policy used to assimilate or margina

The Poetics of Mapping: Representing the Built Environment 
University of Pennsylvania 
April 20-21, 2017 

This graduate student conference is conceived as an opportunity to think more broadly about the ways that poetry shapes and is shaped by the environment in which it exists and the way qualitative visual representations of cities are shaped by non-narrative usages of language. It seeks to bring graduate students in city planning and the larger social sciences together with students who are putting poetry into conversation with spatial forms.

Queer Futurities in Children's and Young Adult Literature

MLA 2018 - Sponsored by the Children's and Young Adult Literature Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Although we have recently seen the implementation of institutional changes that have altered the legal and socioeconomic status of queer people in the United States (i.e. United States v. Windsor in 2013 and Obergefell v. Hodges in 2015), queer individuals continue to encounter discrimination, violence, and death based on their gender and/or sexual orientation. The stark rise in murders of trans people of color and the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting are just a few of the events that have disrupted the misguided sense of utopia instilled by institutional change, and have brought into question whether it is possible for queerness to link to notions of futurity.

*UPDATE*-CFP for Postcolonial Interventions Vol. II, Issue 2 (June 2017)

Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 7, 2017

A.K. Ramanujan in a poem entitled “Small-scale Reflections on a Great House” had mused, “Sometimes I think that nothing/that ever comes into this house/goes out. Things come in every day/to lose themselves among other things/lost long ago among/other things lost long ago”. The description may seem oddly apt for the field of postcolonial studies which continues to search for new shores even as some of the concerns of the past begin to fade with the inevitable processes of history. Even as the field remains committed to a quest for emancipation from violence and discrimination and deprivation, caused by the forces of race, class, gender, sexuality and a number of other factors, the modalities continue to change and the boundaries begin to blur.
