This session welcomes papers that explore the nature of sight and touch as sources of knowledge in American literature. Papers analyzing the use of touch as a means of resolving doubts about visual knowledge or the different implications of gathering knowledge through sight as opposed to touch are particularly encouraged.

The International Association for the Study of Popular Music-United States Branch invites submissions for its 2018 conference, which will take place March 8-11, 2018, at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. All topics pertaining to popular music, broadly defined, including works, practices, and styles not explicitly created for mass reproduction, will be considered. The theme for the 2018 conference is “Going to the Country,” and we encourage submitters to incorporate this theme into their work.
The editor of Critical Insights: Macbeth for Salem Press is seeking proposals for original critical readings of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

The 49th Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association will meet April 12 to 15, 2018, and will feature approximately 400 sessions, as well as dynamic speakers and cultural events. Every year, this event affords NeMLA’s principal opportunity to carry on a tradition of lively research and pedagogical exchange in language and literature.
The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.

Difference and Repetition: Academic Labour after RSI
Thursday 25th May 2017, 6-7:30 PM
Academic labour is often considered to be abstract and disembodied in the popular imagination, and its recent transformation by digital technologies might make this seem even more the case. But the advent of the digital also makes all with digits, physically standardising scholarly activity into the same few motions required to interact with a keyboard, mouse or screen. Academic work has a real, and for some, a lasting, corporeal impact.
The Eudora Welty Review publishes scholarly essays, book reviews, and regular features for news and notes, textual analyses, checklists, and new archival materials. The editors of EWR are constantly seeking new information about such Welty news items as adaptations of her works, forthcoming conferences of interest to Welty scholars, and awards given to Welty in acknowledgement of her contributions to American literature. The EWR is an invaluable resource for Welty scholars and lovers of Welty’s work.

CALL FOR PAPERS:
The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) is seeking paper proposals on comics and graphic novels for its fall conference to be held at the University of Massachusetts Amherst on October 27-28, 2017.
A wide range of topics will be considered; however, in an effort to best serve the medium and culture that make up comics, applicants are encouraged to deal with comics in a theoretical framework. Papers that demonstrate the role of comics in the broader cultural and critical discussion are preferred. Applicants should feel welcome to submit papers on the role of mainstream comics, independent comics, webcomics, strip comics, and underground comix.
