The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium invites proposals for panel themes engaging with the lives and afterlives of medieval cultures for its 2019 meeting. These sub-themes address a particular aspect of our general theme, and could be the basis for either one or two panels. As a rule of thumb, panel themes should be broad enough to encourage numerous applicants, and interdisciplinary proposals are particularly encouraged. Possibilities might include the theologies of heaven, medieval ecologies, everyday life in the Middle Ages, the production of reliquaries, ordering of public space, and popular medievalism.
The Sewanee Medieval Colloquium also invites proposals for individual papers engaging with any aspect of our 2019 theme, Lives and Afterlives. Possibilities might include the theologies of heaven, medieval ecologies, everyday life in the Middle Ages, the production of reliquaries, ordering of public space, and popular medievalism. Papers should be twenty minutes in length, and commentary is traditionally provided for each paper presented. We invite papers from all disciplines, and encourage contributions from medievalists working on any geographic area. A seminar will also seek contributions; please look for its separate CFP soon. Participants in the Colloquium are generally limited to holders of a Ph.D.
Deadline Extended! Submissions now accepted until July 13!

This special issue of The Global South aims to identify new approaches to a pair of modern phenomena: the global migration of peoples, and the movement of film and related motion-picture media beyond national boundaries. Proposals are invited for essays that bring together these complex historical and cultural patterns, and examine the implications of the overlapping mobilities of humans and their motion pictures. How has international migration contributed to world film history from the late 19th century to the present? How has the mobility of film culture, from the itinerant travels of filmmakers themselves to the irrepressible movements of the films they created, identified, mirrored, paralleled, catalyzed, criticized, or otherwise register
This session welcomes papers that explore any aspect of American Literature before 1865, including American Renaissance, Colonial, and Puritan literature. While we are open to papers dealing with a variety of topics and authors during this time period, we are particularly interested in papers that engage with the special conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages." As such, papers dealing with issues such as acting as art and metaphor, theories of role play and theatricality, and conceptions of the world stage and the public audience in American Literature prior to 1865 are particularly welcome. If your paper does not tap into these specific themes but deals with literary topics relevant to this era, you are still more than welcome to submit a proposal.
This special issue will focus on the #MeToo and adjacent movements (#TimesUp, #MuteRKelly, and others). It will examine the movement(s) in the past and present tenses, and think through the potential future implications of activism against sexual violence. Although they are an important part of thinking about/through the movement, we wish to avoid personal narratives and, instead, focus on academic accounts for this issue.
Topics might include:
J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter is one of the most successful series of all time, and since its publication, has inspired scholars to analyze its engagement with gender, its relationship to mythology and fairy tales, and its literary and historical influences. Scholars have examined the impact that the books have had on popular culture, children’s literacy, and children’s literature. Collections have considered the series as a way of exploring politics, philosophy, religion, ethics, and psychology, among other fields. Yet, lost in all this scholarship has been a serious engagement with the way the series portrays education.
