56th International Congress on Medieval Studies

This retrospective roundtable will celebrate the life and medievalist work of Christopher Tolkien—the “Last Inkling”—who died on 16 January 2020, at the age of 95.
The COVID-19 pandemic reinforced how curriculums designed for online and low-residency courses have a particular set of needs differing from those of traditional face-to-face courses. This panel seeks submissions that address how educators approached their own shifts to being suddenly remote, and what changes need to take place institutionally and pedagogically in light of what we’ve uncovered about ourselves as a society.
The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place March 11-14th, 2021 in Philadelphia, PA
The proliferation of essays on the essay is evidence of this literary form’s provocative nature. The essay compels us to reflect on what this art form “is,” while it avoids easy classification. In “She: Portrait of the Essay as a Warm Body,” Cynthia Ozick invites us to think of the essay not so much as a genre, but rather as a gender: “She is too fluid or too elusive to be a category... she is the protagonist, the secret self's personification…why should we not call her she?”

ON_CULTURE: THE OPEN JOURNAL FOR THE STUDY OF CULTURE
ISSUE 11 (SUMMER 2021)
In response to debates considering the relationship between illness and narrative, and the extent to which these concepts can be seen as mutually constitutive, this issue of On_Culture seeks to gather new approaches and critical perspectives to the intricate relationship between narrative and illness. We welcome (inter)disciplinary contributions addressing the concepts’ entanglement on an individual, societal, and global level.
About the Conference
The social exclusion, economic marginalization and cultural subjugation of Indigenous people are pervasive in all regions across the globe due to colonialism and neocolonialism. Even today, Indigenous people continue to struggle to protect their rights to culture, community, heritage, and land. This international conference on Indigenous Studies will allow like-minded researchers, scholars and academicians to explore new avenues in Indigenous Studies. The conference will enable participants to discuss current issues within Indigenous Studies while emphasizing new ways to empower and work collaboratively with Indigenous communities around the world.
