This panel invites submissions that think about the way women writers and artists nationally and globally have confronted the political and legal regulation of women’s bodies, and the way the body itself can subsequently become an important site of socio-political resistance. Paper proposals may consider (but are not limited to) regulatory measures in the areas of reproduction, sexual expression, beauty culture, body modification/transformation, and miscegenation/relational body politics.

Proposals focusing on transnational, multiethnic, and multicultural women writers and artists are especially welcome.

War / After War: Memory, Fear, Indifference


Rutgers University; New Brunswick, NJ

October 4-5


War as memory.  The fear of war.  War as experience.  How does culture mark its relationship to organized violent conflict?  


In 2018, Rutgers’ Nineteenth Century Workshop will address the long-lasting effects of war on nineteenth-century literature and culture.  It is a topic we take to be both urgent and of particular scholarly interest to students of the era.

North American Levinas Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 11, 2018

Emmanuel Levinas writes extensively about the temptations of knowledge and the seductions of intelligibility and intentional consciousness as they enable a fascination for ontology, power, and war. For nearly 13 years, the North American Levinas Society has worked to preserve and focus this critique through social apertures that privilege questions of historical violence, transgenerational suffering, memory and repair.

15th International Connotations Symposium: Understanding (through) Annotations

Monday, September 24, 2018 - 9:06am
Connotations: A Journal for Critical Debate
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2018

Explanatory annotations have always had a somewhat precarious and even paradoxical status: with a few exceptions, they have been considered “below” the concern of the theorist and literary critic, while in some sense they have also been considered “above” the sphere of the textual editor, who has eyed their flights of interpretive fancy with distrust. They have been suspected of manipulating the reader in a clandestine fashion while at the same time they have been regarded as a necessity, for they are an essential means of keeping alive many texts of world literature, from Homer to the Modernists, by making them comprehensible and meaningful to readers.

Pegagogy of the Literature Classroom: Social Justice Literature

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 - 4:12pm
Thomas Cassidy SC State U
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 1, 2018

The Birmingham meeting place of SAMLA 90 and the conference theme, “Fighters from the Margins: Socio-Political Activists and Their Allies,” suggests the extent to which social justice has replaced literary aesthetics as the driving force of literary classroom pedagogy.  While our classrooms may still be filled with analysis of irony, depth, and complexity, it is certainly true that the intersectional barriers to social justice have become an animating force in the analysis of literature.  The questions this panel wants to ask include:
