In Testament of Youth, Vera Brittain reflects that the Armistice has “come too late”: “[the people] did not cry jubilantly: ‘We’ve won the War!’ They only said: ‘The War is over’” (421-2).Honoring the centenary of the Great War’s end, this panel seeks papers on ways in which the arts address practices of memory and commemoration, particularly relating to fraught relationship(s) between war and peace, and the ways in which, as Madelyn Detloff reminds us, we exist in a “‘patched’ present troubled by modernist constellations of personal trauma, militarized violence, and ‘imperial loss’” (Modernism 10).

The Modernist Pause (MSA 19)

Modernist Studies Association Conference
deadline for submissions:

This is a CFP for a proposed panel at the Modernist Studies Association conference (MSA 19, Amsterdam) in August.  Details about the conference are available here: https://msa.press.jhu.edu/conferences/msa19/

The richness and complexity of modernist temporalities are well documented, and recent scholarship increasingly points to the interdependencies of time and space. Yet despite the fact that temporal fragmentation and rupture pervade modernist texts, little attention has been paid to the intervals and pauses in which time seemingly stops.

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

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

Submissions are currently being accepted for an anthology of Appalachian ecocriticism. The Appalachian region has largely been underrepresented in ecocritical studies, and this unique volume will represent Appalachian literature and its environment to the community of ecocritics and, more broadly, the scholarly community as a whole.

Critical investigations into the ways in which Appalachian nature are portrayed in text is, of course, the central theme of the volume. However, additional intersections may include, but are not limited to, the following:

-Accessibility/Disability and the environment

-Animal studies

-Mountaintop removal

-Significance of water/Water quality

-Fracking

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

Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 10:11am
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.
