11th Annual Landscape, Space, and Place Conference
Indiana University – Bloomington, Indiana
March 2-4 2017

Landscape Studies is multidisciplinary, and has far-reaching academic connections and a diverse array of approaches that give the field its strength. The goal of the Landscape, Space and Place (LSP) Conference is to bring together scholars across various disciplinary backgrounds and from different stages of their careers to exchange ideas and consider novel intellectual perspectives. We also hope to encourage a more integrative framework upon which to build the future of the field.

But fellows in a union that ends

With the necessity for it, as it ought.’

Great War Revisited

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: 
Friday, January 27, 2017

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.

General Call: Persona Studies

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