Just as the Greeks on the plains of Troy faced the plague-arrows of Apollo, the modern world currently stands before unprecedented challenges.  The present pandemic has forced us to face issues of mortality more closely than has been the case in recent decades. At the same time, the situation in which the academic world now finds itself is breaking down barriers in many areas: between home and work environments; between academics, students and the wider community; between teachers and pupils; between traditional disciplines; and between different methods of teaching. In fact, there has been a feeling amongst many for quite some time that winds of change are blowing through the corridors of academia.

Jerry Wemple, co-editor
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 4, 2020

In anticipation of the 20th anniversary of the anthology Common Wealth: Contemporary Poets on Pennsylvania (PSU Press 2005), co-editors Marjorie Maddox and Jerry Wemple request submissions of 1-3 poems from poets currently living in or deeply connected to the state of Pennsylvania. Organized geographically and tentatively entitled Keystone Poets: Reflections on the Commonwealth, this collection of new poems will explore the hometowns, history, traditions, and culture of the Commonwealth. We expect some poems may highlight significant Pennsylvania events of the last twenty years. All poems should contain a strong sense of place. Submissions of poems of any length are allowed, with a preference for shorter works. Previously published poems are acceptable.

Literary Diagnosis and the Anti-Medical Humanities

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 30, 2020

With Health Humanities on the rise and medical memoirs flooding bookshelves, it's easy to forget that the alliances forged between literary representation and medical discourse are new and fragile. Writers from a multitude of traditions have long squared off against doctors for the right to understand illness and capture the essence of the diseased subject. Their motivations have spanned from the starkly political to the intensely personal.

This panel seeks to explore the formal approaches and theoretical implications of these Anti-Medical Humanities. What drives these writers to resist the assimilation of the literary into the medical, and vice versa?

Potential topics could include, but are not limited to:
