The newly-formed North American Victorian Studies Association (NAVSA) Data Caucus will host its free inaugural conference at the University of Virginia on November 15-16, 2019. Our conception of data encompasses British and North American practices for gathering and expressing information; cultural attitudes toward data; the rising disciplines and technologies that lead to today’s communications, new media, critical coding, and data science; digital collections; digital pedagogies; quantitative methods; data theory, and digital humanities. We welcome proposals from those working with historical and/or technical data, as well as the digital-curious.

When comedy dominates popular culture so thoroughly that it’s difficult to distinguish spoofs from truths, when identities and relationships form and fumble on a foundation of comic memes, and when the powerful and the powerless wield comedy alternately as weapon or shield, it’s time for the academy to take comedy seriously. Teaching Comic Texts, edited by Bev Hogue, will examine how comic texts of many types can be deployed in classrooms, either as a topic of literary or cultural study or as a window into understanding other fields. In addition to exploring historical and theoretical contexts, essays in the volume will provide practical insights for teaching comic texts in a variety of disciplines.
SELIM 31 | University of Valladolid, 19-21 September 2019
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Spanish Society for Medieval English Language and Literature, and the local Organising Committee, cordially invite members of the Society and all scholars interested in the field to send their contributions for its 31st International Conference, which will be held at the University of Valladolid, Spain, on 19-21 September 2019.
The organisers welcome individual paper proposals dealing with any aspect of
Southeast Asian travelogues and global Asia
This laboratory considers the ways in which travelogues by Southeast Asians articulated the concept of inter-Asian connections, thus prefiguring the term ‘global Asia.’ Examples include the study of early modern India and Southeast Asia by Chinese-language Nanyang (South Seas) historians in 1950s Singapore, as reflected in their travel memoirs, as well as the Malaccan writer and translator Munsyi Abdullah’s Bahasa chronicles of his voyages to Mecca and northern Malaysia in the late nineteenth century. We are interested in papers that engage in the following topics:
The journal, Humanities, is now accepting proposals for a special issue on "Theology of Marilynne Robinson in a Postsecular Age." The deadline for the proposal is Janauary 31, 2019.
“What end is served in abstracting the glimmer of numinosity, the summons to awe…from its particular histories, institutions, communities, struggles?”
—Tracy Fessenden, “The Problem of the Postsecular”
MLA 2020: Vision and Sight in Children’s Literature and Culture
Non-guaranteed session co-sponsored by the Children’s and Young Adult Literature forum and the Disability Studies forum
MLA Special SessionJanuary 9-12, 2020Seattle, WA CALL FOR PROPOSALS As PhDs in the humanities increasingly find (and are increasingly encouraged to find) careers outside of the academy, this proposed special session for the 2020 MLA Convention aims to look beyond advising models and programmatic changes and asks how professional organizations like MLA or other academic adjacent institutions can support independent scholarship. What stigma does the "independent scholar" label carry?

Trust: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
Saturday 31st August 2019 - Sunday 1st September 2019
We live in a time when manipulated images, partisan reporting, and allegations of ‘fake news’ make it increasingly difficult to determine whether individuals and institutions are worthy of our trust. Trust is akin to a leap of faith that depends on a combination of experience, intuition, bravery and sheer hope. As Alphonse Lingis observes, ‘[…] to trust you is to go beyond what I know and to hold on to the real individual that is you.” Interpersonal trust circumvents the uncertainties that may put relationships at risk and transforms these into the most wondrous of alliances as doubt turns to rapture.
