POSTINDUSTRIAL ENVIRONMENTS

This panel aims to explore the various literary spaces—both urban and organic—that define American literature after deindustrialization. How does the postindustrial economy remake the ways that people work in, live in, rely on, and relate to their built and natural environments? And how, in turn, do those new environmental dynamics reshape contemporary novels and poems?

Thoreau and Resistance 

What do Thoreau's writings offer contemporary modes of social and political resistance?  As we navigate an extended period of political crisis, what can we learn from Thoreau's complex responses to the national politics of his time? This panel will consider Thoreau's legacy for resistance movements with particular attention to the question of the relation between his political and natural history writings. Please send queries or one-page abstracts (for an 18-minute presentation) by January 15, 2018 to: kristen.case@maine.edu.

PUBLICATION SERIES: The Black Atlantic Cultural Series: Revisioning the Literary, Visual, and Performing Arts

This series will embrace exploratory discussions that emanate from the latest Africana ideas from the Caribbean, Black Atlantic, and Southern United States. The series aims to examine ideologies, theories, aesthetics, and their cultural and global manifestations. From the music, dance, literature, fashion, linguistic nuances, and beyond, Africana culture is vibrantly original and requires significant documentation to avoid its loss in the vast imitation that abounds nationally and internationally.

Interférences Littéraires
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Interférences littéraires/Literaire interferenties is a peer-reviewed, international and multilingual open-access journal devoted to the interaction between literature and cultural and societal practices. The word “interference” denotes a situation of unsolicited or even unnecessary intervention, the conjunction of clearly distinct phenomena. If literature, and in particular the reservoir of texts commonly categorized as ‘modern’, has delineated itself and has been projected with a strong sense of autonomy vis-à-vis social, cultural, ideological or scientific discourses and material conditions, neither its production nor its reception ever happens in a vacuum.

Literature's Kinkiest Corners

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018

We are currently seeking 500-word abstracts for an edited collection on kink and other fringe texts (taboo literature, self-published erotica, SM narratives, fan fiction, disavowed fictions, and other marginalized texts). In this project, we define kink broadly to encompass a range of "inappropriate" texts, understanding that kink often refers to non-normative erotic fantasies and experiences. We are interested in contributions that focus primarily on contemporary written texts and do so by engaging theoretical frameworks such as psychoanalysis, queer theory, rhetoric, and feminist theory. One of the interests of this project is an exploration of the ways texts shift in and out of different canons and categories.
