Association for Literature and the Environment 2019 Conference, Paradise on Fire, U.C. Davis, June 26-30
Panel Title: "Disidentifications with the Human"
Planned Format: Traditional Panel (4 Presenters)
Ongoing public debate over politically charged public monuments reminds us how much is at stake in the shaping of cultural memory, whether through durable physical structures, portable or reproducible aesthetic works, or discursive representations. How were monumentality and the preservation of the past conceived in the nineteenth century? How might we reconceive our own ways of remembering the nineteenth century? We invite proposals for papers and panels that explore monuments in the broadest sense of the word—those from as well as those about the nineteenth century. We also welcome papers that consider the concepts of monumentality and/or memory as they pertain to humanistic disciplines and engage with nineteenth-century studies.
Armenian Studies means different things to different people. This conference aims to bring scholars of diverse time periods in this field into conversation with one another for reciprocal enrichment. We welcome graduate student projects that explore the mutually constitutive relationship between ancient and modern Armenian culture. Each paper should grapple with intersecting elements of both past and present. In the spirit of collaborative cooperation, invited faculty members will also foster mentorship within the field of Armenian Studies by participating actively in panel discussion.
Questions to consider might include (but are not limited to):

Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies is a refereed, peer-reviewed, and born-digital journal devoted to the culture, literature, history, and society of the medieval past. Published semi-annually, the journal collects exceptional examples of work by graduate students on a number of themes, disciplines, subjects, and periods of medieval studies. We also welcome book reviews of monographs published or re-released in the past five years that are of interest to medievalists. For the Fall/Winter 2018 issue we are particularly interested in papers and reviews of books which fall under the current special topic.
We seek projects pertaining to health, sickness, and everything in between and at the extremes of these conditions that span and involve the Spanish-speaking and Lusophone worlds. Drawing on a variety of approaches, including but not limited to, biopolitics, necropolitics, spirituality and religion, queer studies, the history of medicine and epidemics, and affect theory, we invite you to consider the figure of the (g)host, regardless of your period of interest. Questions about the limits of the bodily and conceptualizations of liminality as well as interdisciplinary papers are of particular interest.

Virginia Woolf: Mobilizing Emotion, Feeling, and Affect
Guest Editor: Celiese Lypka
This panel, which has been accepted for the 2019 ASLE biennial conference, seeks to respond to the following questions, among others: How do contemporary African novels inform us about the cultural formations and emerging global realities in the post-1960 world and help us reimagine African environments at the margins? In what ways postcolonial ecocritical engagements with African fictional narratives are crucial to open up the imaginative horizon of non-Western environmental epistemologies and ontologies? Why is the novel form significant in invoking both the place-based and the planetary sense of environmental imagination?
