Proposed Special Session for MLA 2020 in Seattle (Jan. 9-12)

The upcoming 2020 MLA Conference is being held in Seattle, Jimi Hendrix's hometown, 50 years after his death in 1970.

To mark this meeting, we welcomes proposals about the significance of Hendrix and his music to cultural and literary studies, including how his legacy continues to infuse and inspire artists, writers, and scholars. We are especially interested in papers that tie his music to larger movements of black expression, such as blues traditions, black radical aesthetics, or the Black Arts Movement, as well as other innovative analyses inspired by affect theory and performance studies.

Old and Middle English Language and Literature: Medieval Merging of Old and New Knowledge and Practice

Monday, April 8, 2019 - 3:41pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 19, 2019

The coexistence in practice though not always in name of sometimes very different knowledges is both an ancient and modern concern. The Middle Ages saw the development of the concept of translatio studii alongside a growing interest in translation from other languages and cultures, both ancient and contemporary. At its core, translatio studii is the absorption of knowledge or practice from one culture into another, resulting in a text or practice that presents itself as part of the dominant culture, but retains something of its origins as well.

Religious Places and Sacred Spaces (Master's Conference)

Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 7:36am
Duke Graduate School of Religion (Master's Program)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 22, 2019

Conference Date: April 4-6, 2019


Why are space and place important categories for the study of religion? What role do these categories have in formulating concepts of religion? Scholars have attempted to not only theorize space but also to employ it in their work to better understand how humans interact with the spaces around them. These spaces are not confined to physical spaces. We invite papers that address, ask, and employ any discussion regarding space or place concering religion. Scholarly work is not restricted to one single field, and neither is this conference! We welcome proposals from all fields of interest and relevant disciples.


Living and travel expenses are covered by the department.
