Novels, Then and Now invites papers on all novel genres, authors, time periods, cultures, and settings. Consider it a safety net for novels that don’t fit neatly into a specific genre or that cross genres. For example, consider the many sub-genres of Romance with a capital “R”—western, thriller, paranormal, religious, romance (with a small “r”), detective, urban fantasy, etc. From Pearl S. Buck to Lee Child, from Laurie King to Tony Hillerman, from Julia Spencer-Fleming to Emilie Richards—all are welcome. Topics for the 2021 virtual conference could include, but are not limited to:

The 'periphery' has long been the scene for the most pressing wagers of urban, economic and social development: in its various, often unfortunately negative aspects, the periphery constitutes a node of transition and inevitable connection between the 'centre' and the 'outside' of the city, maintaining opposing characteristics towards both, and acting as an identity-creating workshop for 'middle-earth society', where degradation is mixed with opportunities and is redeemed by creative energy.

Food and food practices constitute a significant part of national identity. People derive their sense of belonging through food cultures, which embody the memories of community and group membership. Eating Culture: The Poetics and Politics of Food posits cooking as an act that “performs cultural memory” (Doring, Heide & Muhleisen 2003) and reinforces communal relationships. While the Covid-19 pandemic that began in 2020 forced everyone to practice social distancing, shutting all social gatherings and communal activities. Food is one of the few things, which nevertheless aided in the continuance of social interaction.
