Special Session at Midwest MLA at Milwaukee, WI (Nov 5 - 8, 2020):
Abstracts are sought for a peer-reviewed collection of philosophical essays related to the Naughty Dog action-adventure video game series Uncharted (2007-2017). The essays should refer to the games that are considered the canon of the series: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. As the production of the movie adaptation of the game has been once again put on hold, and it seems that Naughty Dog will not develop new entries in the series in the foreseeable future, a book of essays seems rather timely.
Re: Extended Deadline 24 April: Words, Music and Marginalisation, University of St Andrews, 1-3 September 2020
Many thanks to those of you who have already sent abstracts through for our conference Words, Music and Marginalisation with the WMA Forum in St Andrews in September 2020.
We appreciate that everyone is operating in a state of uncertainty, and with many more personal, professional and family demands on their time than usual. It is impossible at this stage to predict what travel will look like in September, but we recognise that colleagues are not comfortable making arrangements for future travel until things become clearer.
Session proposals due by new extended deadline, Friday, May 8, 2020, at cfplist.com/nemla. For more information, please visit buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/session or email firstname.lastname@example.org. NeMLA's 52nd Annual Convention is slated to take place March 11 to 14, 2021, and we hope that by then we will all be able to participate in our friendly convention in beautiful Philadelphia, the "Birthplace of America," steps from Independence Hall. Circumstances permitting, important work awaits us in re-shaping the humanities for ourselves, our constituents, and our broader communities.
