Militourism: Travel Literature and Empire - MLA guaranteed session

Tuesday, January 22, 2019 - 11:25am
Modern Languages Association - GS Travel Writing
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 15, 2019

Inspired by Teresia Teaiwa’s definition of “militourism” as a “phenomenon by which a military or paramilitary force ensures the running of a tourist industry, and that same tourist industry masks the military force behind it,” this panel seeks to consider practices of “militourism” in a long historical context by soliciting papers with critical approaches to militarization, travel, and tourism from antiquity to the present day. We invite papers that engage questions of conquest, colonization, and empire; battlefield/memorial tourism; memoirs by soldiers, soldiers’ wives, and support staff; the intersections of military and tourist industries.

SAR Special Issue on the Work of Lorraine Lopez

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 9:41am
University of North Georgia
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Lorraine López is a powerful emerging voice in Latinx literature. She has published six books of fiction, including Soy la Avon Lady (winner of the inaugural Miguel Mármol prize for fiction) and Call Me Henri (awarded the Paterson Prize for Young Adult Literature), and she has edited or coedited three essay collections. Her work reflects a variety of concerns, specifically regarding the complex cultural practices of Mexican American communities; it confronts issues of identity and representation, gender, sexuality, class, race, culture, and place, among others. Yet, despite her popular success, there is very little scholarship that exists on her work.

Once Upon a Time There Was a Virus....: Storytelling, Health and Illness
Saturday 31st August - Sunday 1st September 2019
Lisbon, Portugal

Throughout history, people have felt a need to tell each other stories about the ordinary as well as the surprising experiences of being alive, particularly in relation to health, well-being, illness, disease and death. Telling stories was – and still is – a way of recording and grappling with the origins, causes and prevention of illnesses and disease that surrounded them in everyday life.

Theology of Marilynne Robinson in a Postsecular Age

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 10:34am
American Literature Association (Boston; May 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 31, 2019

Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.

Call for Articles: Memory Studies and Latinidad

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 1:01pm
Journal of Latino-Latin American Studies (JOLLAS)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

How does latinidad rely on personal memory? ¿Cómo es el concepto de « latinidad » a la vez un producto de memoria cultural? ¿Qué pasa cuando olvidamos? Do we learn latinidad from lessons that value the truths of memory? Across specialties of the disciplines and in a variety methods, recent scholarship is addressing the distance between the historical and the remembered. The authority of history measured against the validity of memory (both individual and collective) reveals that how we remember has become as important as what we remember.
