Where is that place where what should not ‘happen to nobody’ happens every day? Why is it that, in so many places found in every corner of the global space, so many human beings face that which ‘no one deserves’?

—Ferreira da Silva (2009, p. 212) 

You better understand White people’s fantasies because tomorrow they’ll be legislation

—Jared Sexton, invoked by Frank Wilderson (2020)

I have only one solution: to rise above this absurd drama that others have staged around me

Women in religion: from spiritual leadership to female empowerment

Thursday, February 16, 2023 - 4:43pm
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 30, 2023

It is more than a cliché that gender plays a crucial role in religion, as most religious orders in the world were, and currently are, dominated by men. The role of women in cultic settings is, as a rule, secondary, as is also the authority of female ministers of religion, while the social benefits of those appointed with religious duties are also incomparable with the privileges received by men.  This year, we invite proposals that explore the female share in leadership roles related to religion (saints, prophetesses, priestesses, nuns, preachers, witches, shamans and more), and emphasize how their achievements are reflected in history and art. How prominent female figures have compromised men’s secured positions of power in socioreligious structures?

CFP: Robert Graves and The ‘60s: “All You Need is Love”?

British writer Robert Graves (1895-1985) associated with multiple counterculture movements, including the modernist vanguard and anti-war poets, made forays into Eastern mysticism, reimagined the Classical period, contemporized ancient myths and rituals, experimented with hallucinogens, and managed to publish over 140 books, including what some might term his magnum opus, The White Goddess, an encyclopedic work he subtitled “A historic grammar of poetic myth.” Above all else, he is remembered as a poet of Love, exploring the subject across his long career in its many iterations: romantic, allegorical, ritualistic, the literary—the coupling of Poet and Muse.

The MLA’s Forum on Psychology, Psychoanalysis and Literature solicits abstracts for a guaranteed panel at the January 2024 MLA Convention in Philadelphia on queer theory and psychoanalysis. We particularly welcome theoretical and archival scholarship that centers LGBTQI+ theorists, artists, intellectuals, and writers.

Queer theory embraces psychoanalysis and its speculative concepts as crucial elements of counter-identitarian critical practice. Yet the relationship between these two fields remains under-examined. Topics of particular interest include:

Liberal Subjects, Then and Now

Monday, February 27, 2023 - 1:02pm
NAVSA 2023 Roundtable
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 12, 2023

Liberalism’s nebulous contours have long animated studies of nineteenth-century British literature and culture. This roundtable seeks to extend these discussions by turning to this tradition’s imprint upon our practices and conceptions of teaching and scholarship. We invite papers that trouble the continued privileging of the “liberal subject,” a term that encompasses ideas of individualism, originality, and progress–values whose peculiar Victorianism has been analyzed by Elaine Hadley, Amanda Anderson, and Lauren Goodlad, among others.
