“Difference must be not merely tolerated, but seen as a fund of necessary polarities between which our creativity can spark like a dialectic” - Audre Lorde (1984)

 

“Living as I have argued we do in the wake of slavery, in spaces where we were never meant to survive, or have been punished for surviving and for daring to claim or make spaces of something like freedom, we yet reimagine and transform spaces for and practices of an ethics of care (as in repair, maintenance, attention), an ethics of seeing, and of being in the wake as consciousness; as a way of remembering and observance that started with the door of no return, continued in the hold of the ship and on the shore.” - Christina Sharpe (2016)

Masculinities have been created and codified by every aspect of society, and have been embodied in everything from images of cave men to the Ken doll. Much of this creation depends upon the stifling of manifestations of masculinities that, over time, fluctuate in terms of social acceptability and utility. This volume will interrogate classic and contemporary cultural products in order to expose and explore how and why masculinities have been censored as “toxic” or are increasingly being silenced in other ways. The collection seeks to offer a mindful engagement with the rapidly evolving field of masculinity studies and the emergent crises facing masculinities of all kinds.

Climate change is the existential crisis of this century, affecting biodiversity, ecosystems, and all aspects of human life. This is a topic of enormous breadth, complexity, and particular urgency with respect to knowledge, innovation, collaboration, advocacy, and activism. The fall 2021 issue of the peer-reviewed Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will explore the broad and impactful work of undergraduate research in the context of climate change. Are there particular models of collaborative research vital for this work? Are there particular challenges associated with the interdisciplinary demands of the interrelated impacts of climate change?

The traditional apprenticeship model is a well-documented paradigm for engaging undergraduates in research. In recent years, course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) have become more common. Many factors influence a mentor’s ability to use these models, and sometimes alternative paths are needed to engage in undergraduate research. The winter 2020 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) will explore these nontraditional approaches to undergraduate research.

Continentalizing Global Modernism @ MLA 2021

John Hoffmann / University of Marburg

Friday, March 20, 2020

As the ambit of global modernist studies expands, the place of continental Europe in the geography of modernism is something of a quandary. Indeed, the continent’s place was never very clear to begin with. In her foundational essay “Periodizing Modernism,” Susan Stanford Friedman criticizes a disciplinary bias that favors Anglo-American modernism at the expense of writing from postcolonial nations. Yet Friedman also notes that the old, chiefly Anglo-American modernist studies possessed only a “limited continental scope.” Thus the turn to the globe––that is, the turn away from Europe––has consigned the continent to the disciplinary past when, according to Friedman, it was a marginalized domain in the first place.

(Re)settlement: Making Place, Making Space

Early bird deadline January 22, 2020 (potentially eligible for funding)*  EXTENDED from original posting.  
Final deadline February 15, 2020 

Crucial to many social justice studies and critical pedagogies are the acknowledgement of settlement, place, and space. Locationality and positionality form the foundation of our worldviews and our social, cultural, and political experiences. We aim to explore the nuances and complexities of settlement, place, and space in the context of settler-colonial societies through an intersectional social justice framework, and how to challenge systems of injustice that become established through place and space.

Graduate Students in English at the University of Arkansas
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 21, 2020

As graduate students we often find ourselves in the in-between spaces. No longer just students but not part of the faculty – working to professionalize but not recognized as professionals yet. Our experiences in this liminal space create the unique experience that crafts us into the scholars that we are working to become. This conference theme is focused on the concept of liminality both in scholarship and within our professional, classroom, and political spaces.
