Culture and Theory in Reactionary Times
The theatre is a space of creative potential, particularly for expressing and for shaping and articulating identity. Little attention has been paid to youth theatre as a place of creation for youths (individuals aged between 12 and 25) in regional, minority, and minoritsed languages.

Special Issue of Texas Studies in Literature and Language: Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek at 50
From the rapes of Lucretia and Beatrice Cenci in Ancient Roman art and literature to the #MeToo movement, women have long faced oppression that often engenders the sense of trauma and defiance. Reflecting on the 2023 NEMLA Convention theme “Resilience,” this seminar welcomes papers that explore how the above scenarios are depicted, and resisted, in British literature. Topics may include but are not limited to the Gothic and usurped female agency, female Gothic oneirocriticism, feminist interventions, spectrums of mentation, rectification of misunderstanding and stigmatisation, resilient female characters, and trauma in relationships (familial, romantic, professional, etc.).
South Asian literary works have given us a memorable array of complex portraits of women and men and the relations between them. Some characters favor traditional modes of understanding the roles and behaviors of the sexes and their interrelations, others seem oriented to a progressive outlook on gender and the relations relations between women, men and non-binary individuals, while still others apparently embody a mixture of these attitudes. May we discern patterns or differences in matters of gender and gender relations when taking into account whether the authors in question identify as female, male, or non-binary?

"Transformation through Literacy”
This panel seeks presentations about peace studies through spatializing the study of human rights, emigration, migration, immigration, and diasporas.
This "call for chapters" is for a collection through Lexington Press (which has approved the concept and is awaiting the chapter list). The focus of this collection is mentorship as portrayed in shonen anime and film.
Shonen anime and film is loaded with mentors. Some are insightful, benevolent, and effective. Boku no Hero Academia’s All Might is one such mentor. His treatment of Midoriya is founded in compassion. And, All Might himself is a beloved leader. Who he is before the camera is the same as when there are no cameras to be found (excluding his physical transformation, of course). He is a model mentor.
