Religious Futurisms: A Call for Papers

 

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a forthcoming collection of essays on the broad topic of Religious Futurisms, to be edited by Sumeyra Buran Utku and Jim Clarke.

Religious Futurisms derives its intellectual inspiration from the emergence of Afrofuturism and other Alternative Futurisms as ideological and analytical frameworks in recent years. Religious Futurisms can manifest as ideology, criticality, prophecy, futurology, philosophy or artistic practice. They may be discerned in a wide range of forms, ranging from speculative theology to performative videogame interaction to abstract or polysemous imagery in visual art.

The Literary Writer as Public Intellectual after 1945 (NeMLA 2022)

Inviting abstract submissions for a panel on "The Literary Writer as Public Intellectual After 1945" at NeMLA's 53rd Annual Convention, to be held March 10-13, 2022 in Baltimore, Maryland

This panel examines the ways in which literary writers have adopted, subverted, or transformed the role of the public intellectual since 1945. Literary writers mattered to American public life during the mid-twentieth century in distinctive ways: that is, reading practices mattered to civic life (Matthews 2016, Menand 2010) and many novelists believed that the figurative or symbolic forms that they created could have a genuine impact on "more ostensibly 'real' political formations" (Szalay 2012).

Dear colleagues,

please see the CFP below:

To be held at the 2022 Northeastern Modern Language Association (NeMLA) convention in Baltimore, Maryland.

 

Reading is a fundamental component of all levels of second language instruction and the goal of developing reading proficiency necessarily informs the selection, didacticization, and instruction of curricular materials. A reliance on authentic texts common in curricula designed according to current standards poses challenges in these areas, but also creates opportunities for rethinking the place, purpose, and structure of reading proficiency as communicative competence in the language classroom and within the curriculum.

deadline for submissions:

This roundtable session addresses the 2022 NeMLA conference theme of “care” to explore its significance and resonances throughout the Black diaspora. Christina Sharpe asks in In the Wake: On Blackness and Being (2016), “How can we think (and rethink and rethink) care laterally, in the register of the intramural, in a different relation than that of the violence of the state?” (20) This session aims to continue to rethink care in this context.

Presentations will consider how Black writers, artists, filmmakers, and other cultural producers explore the practice of care in relation to Black peoples and other living beings across national boundaries. Participants might consider, but are not limited to, some of the following questions:

In the last decade, we have witnessed the harrowing images of migrants including that of Alan Kurdi whose death sparked world-wide outrage at the way in which the migrant crisis has been dealt with on a global level. While Kurdi’s untimely death drew attention to the Syrian refugees and their plight, the political crisis that has taken place in the South Asian subcontinent begs us to further think about the subjectivities of migrants and refugees and the ethics of care within this region.

Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.
