In a 1968 interview, John Dos Passos commented on what he saw as the growing marginalization of his work by recalling a conversation he once had with Ernest Hemingway. “He always used to bawl me out for including so much topical stuff,” Dos Passos remembered. “He always claimed that was a great mistake, that in fifty years nobody would understand. He may have been right; it’s getting to be true.”

The International Journal of the History of Sport
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 15, 2019

Since its creation in the mid-20th century, fantasy sport has become a significant part of international sport and its history. Once an obscure subculture of statistics-obsessed sports fans, fantasy sport now constitutes a cultural phenomenon with 59.3 million North American participants in 2017 and with tens of millions more throughout the world. According to the Fantasy Sports Trade Association, North American participants alone spend an average of $556 a year on fantasy sport and related materials, amounting to almost $33 billion in annual revenue. With this level of fan interest and earning capacity, fantasy sport is now a major force within the global sport industry.

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

updated: 
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.
