The third issue of JAm It! (Journal of American Studies in Italy) will explore the relations between environmental transformations and migrations in the North American context from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

Reminder: Unrealized Futures: Post-Socialist Memory in German-language Literature

updated: 
Monday, September 9, 2019 - 1:59pm
(NeMLA March 5-8, 2020, Boston)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

For this panel, we invite contributions on literary explorations of the socialist legacy in Eastern Europe in its relation to the present and the future. Much of the post-1989 scholarship has focused on Aufarbeitung broadly defined as a crucial trait of literature from and about the former East. More recently, some scholars have brought into view another dimension of literary engagement with Eastern Europe’s past: an engagement with the hopes and dreams that never came to fruition and the unrealized, alternative futures embedded in the socialist past.

Global Horror: Local Perspectives

Progressive Connexions
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 8, 2019

Horror pervades human experience. It affects us both as individuals and as members of social communities, it is recurrent in pop culture and arguably present in all fields of human knowledge and realms of storytelling, from Cronus eating his own children, to Freddy Krueger’s sadistic murders in A Nightmare on Elm Street to media coverage of war. As a fundamentally paradoxical concept, horror simultaneously repels and fascinates us: we naturally dread it, yet we are drawn to it. We are taught to avoid that which is horrifying, but the appeal of horror, whether in the form of fiction or sensational news, is irresistible.

[ACLA] The Other of Postcolonial Studies: Postcolonial Islands, Their Unique Sensbility and Challenges

In their seminal book, Islands in History and Representation, Rod Edmond and Vanessa Smith famously point out that stories about islands tend “to slip the net of postcolonial theorising” due to their marginality in terms of geopolitics and academic representation. Accordingly, researchers of Island Studies, an emerging field in the past two decades, have long maintained that due to their geographical and geostrategic singularity, or “islandness,” the (post)colonial conditions of island societies deserve special attention, and the study of which requires a different set of concepts and methodologies than what are available or predominant in Postcolonial Studies.
