In line with the theme proposed for the 44th annual meeting of the African Literature Association in 2018, “The Environments of African Literature”, the Lusophone/Hispanophone Caucus (LHCALA) invites submissions for roundtables, paper or poster presentations that engage Lusophone and/or Hispanophone perspectives. We seek submissions that consider ways by which multiple environments as cited in the general call—physical, institutional, ideological, symbolic, discursive, cultural, and technological (among others)—feature in and affect the production, dissemination and reception of Lusophone and Hispanophone literature (comprising various expressions of creative endeavor including essays, ﬁlm, music, narrative, poetry, digital material, and visual texts).

Hoodwinking Higher Education: Deviant Behavior and Academia
I am seeking contributors to an edited volume on academic deviance titled, Hoodwinking Higher Education: Deviant Behavior and Academia.
My own current involvement in this project stems from substantial fieldwork on the topic, in particular fraudulent academic conferences that offer various amenities such as vacation/tourist packages; guaranteed acceptance for participation; guaranteed publications in conference proceedings; invitations for future keynote speaking engagements; all at the expense of allocated college/university research budgets.
Call for Papers: Violence and Postcolonial India
International Journal of Humanistic Ideology (CLUJ University Press, Romania, Issue 2018)
Guest Editor: Om Prakash Dwivedi, Auro University, India
Digital America is now accepting submissions for Issue No. 11. We are an online journal that focuses on digital art and culture with an eye towards impactful perspectives in the digital age, as well as deconstructing what it means to live in our current political climate. We are looking for critical essays, film, artwork, design, and reviews that question, analyze, and/or hack the tools of digital culture. We are also interested in work that explores how new behaviors and global networks of power and influence are examining what it means to be American.
This panel will consider how twentieth century American plays define, operationalize, register, and/or critique ethical discourse. Is there an “ethics” of the twentieth century play? What people, places, and things are left out of this ethical discourse? For example, in asking ethical questions, some projects may wish to consider how American drama resists, and/or encodes, power relations. Research here may also be mindful of how specific American plays, masters, and movements help us to ask difficult questions rather than seek easier answers.

Second Graduate Symposium

MARGIN reads Messy Bodies
Last year, in our end-of-the-year symposium focusing on the afterlife of Ovid in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, we found ourselves confronting surprisingly queer, surprisingly metamorphosed, messy bodies, bodies that frequently demanded decidedly messy methodological engagements, between disciplinary categories or at their margins. With all this in mind, we continue our group exploration of the body with this year’s symposium.
