The Margaret Atwood Studies Journal always invites submissions (from both members and nonmembers of the Society alike). Essays submitted must be the original work of the author(s) and neither published nor under consideration for publication elsewhere. Essays should be focused primarily on the work of Margaret Atwood, between 2,500 and 6,250 words, double-spaced, written in grammatical English, and documented following the conventions outlined in the latest MLA Handbook. Please include an abstract. To facilitate blind review, submissions should include a cover sheet with contact information and include no references to authorship in the essay. There is no submission deadline; we take submissions on a rolling basis.

‘What is important now is to recover our senses. We must learn to see
more, to hear more, to feel more. […] The function of criticism should be to
show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.’

Proposed session for the annual convention of the American Studies Association (theme: “Pedagogies of Dissent”) in Chicago, Nov 9-12, 2017
In conjunction with the MLA theme: #States of Insecurity, this panel seeks contributions that complicate notions of assimilation and the assimilated Italian American. How has Italian American radicalization been minimized, erased, or marginalized in favor of the assimilation tale of struggle, hard work, and success? How have Italian radical migrants’ stories been homogenized by the mythic and legal processes of assimilation, including the Alien Registration Act? How have other ethnic and racial minorities used the example of Italian American assimilation to create their assimilation stories? Seeking contributions especially in gender studies, race and ethnic studies, urban studies, working class studies, and digital humanities.
GFF 2017: Realities and World Building
University of Vienna, September 20th-23rd 2017
The creation and experience of “new” worlds is a central appeal of the fantastic. From Middle Earth to variations of the Final Frontier, the fantastic provides a seemingly infinite number of fantastic “worlds” and world concepts. It develops and varies social and cultural systems, ideologies, biological and climatic conditions, cosmologies and different time periods. Its potential and self-conception between the possible and the impossible offer perspectives to nearly every field of research.
We seek papers on alternate-history writing, TV, and film, with a particular emphasis on papers addressing debates over revisionism, propaganda, or how re-imaginings elucidate established history. Please send 300-word abstracts and 50-word biographical statements to email@example.com by March 13, 2017.
Can we secure our profession in higher education “coal mines” pressured by accreditors, economics, and ideologies forcing course shells, “pathways,” dual enrollment, and accelerated developmental coursework? Abstracts by 1 March 2017;Linda Weinhouse (firstname.lastname@example.org).

If you are interested, please send us your proposals to the following emails: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15, 2017.
