Chapters for The Poetics of Grief and Melancholy in East-West Conflicts and Reconciliations

We are inviting chapter proposals for the edited book The Poetics of Grief and Melancholy in East-West Conflicts and Reconciliations. It is a collection of academic essays that examines the representation, aesthetics, dilemma and/or dichotomy of the notions of grief and melancholy in East-West exchanges and cultural dialogues. Contributors can explore the topic in the dimensions of individual behaviors under specific social norms and cultural products such as literature, film, music, art, theatre performance and any other forms of arts/genres etc.

Religion in American Literature

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) Annual Conference (Nov. 11-13, 2022)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 15, 2022

This session examines the relationship between religion and American literature. It welcomes papers that explore the intersectionality between religion, politics, and literature.  How can literary texts help us understand the discourses of the religious right or the left and their search for community?  How does faith contribute both to harmful or positive visions of community?  What can literature teach us about the type of faith that will allow us to create and embrace “the beloved community” introduced by Josiah Royce, and later highlighted by Martin Luther King, Jr.? Proposals that engage with the conference theme of "Geographies of the Fantastic and the Quotidian” are of particular interest.

'Poetry Led Me by the Hand out of Madness': Resilience in Confessional Poetry

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Though many Confessional poets lived and/or ended their lives tragically, their writing often speaks of resilience, survival, and their struggles to overcome depression. For such poets as John Berryman, Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and W.D. Snodgrass, writing can be seen as, in the quote in the title from Sexton, a form of personal salvation. This panel aims to examine how Confessional work demonstrates resilience in the face of the poets' own personal struggles, including such personal traumas as mental health, failing marriages and relationships, and the difficulties some faced as women writers. Papers on any of the listed writers or others who may be broadly construed as Confessional will be considered.
