Word-ing as Worlding: Writing in/through/from the Body to the World (NeMLA 2024 Panel)

Tuesday, June 27, 2023 - 1:12pm
Northeast Modern Language Association / NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

This session emerges from an attunement to the excess of grief and trauma that have recently marked being and belonging for so many of us. In doing so, it aims to hold room for where grief and trauma meet literature and creative writing, asking first: what literature can we engage and look to for support on writing through grief and trauma, both our own and that of others we have come to know intimately? Other key questions that the session seeks to explore include, but are not limited to: How do we straddle writing about the “damage” of the everyday while also writing about what Toni Morrison calls awe and reverence?

SEMINAR NeMLA. Creativity Against Debt: Fighting Precarity in Latin American Culture

Wednesday, June 21, 2023 - 1:29pm
Natalia Aguilar Vasquez, Emerson College
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

This panel offers a transnational and interdisciplinary vision of how creativity resists debt. Capturing the social alienation of debt embodied in the lives of so many Latin Americans, and contrary to analyzing Latin American debt only as a sophisticated form of socioeconomic oppression— particularly of individuals and communities historically marginalized from politics and power—this panel aims to discuss the creative and resourceful ways indebted individuals are forced to navigate their precarity and reclaim a future for their families.

Regionalism’s Climates (special issue of ALR)

Wednesday, June 21, 2023 - 1:29pm
American Literary Realism
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 31, 2023

Critics frequently frame American literary regionalism in geographical terms, whether by emphasizing a region’s spatial boundedness or emphasizing components of regionalist writing that stretch across space and scale. A similar negotiation of spatial scales from the proximate to the planetary has come to characterize recent conversations about climate change in the environmental humanities—for example in the work of Timothy Clark, Benjamin Morgan, and Elizabeth DeLoughrey. Regionalism’s engagements with place, scale, ecology, and everyday atmospheres make it a potentially generative form for representing climate, and yet few scholarly treatments have investigated the interconnections between American literary regionalism and climatic thought.

Literature and Life Writing
Midwest Regional Meeting of the Conference on Christianity and Literature
October 23-24, 2023
Wheaton College 

This conference brings together scholars of Christianity and literature with contemporary writers of spiritual memoir to celebrate religious life writing and consider the forms, features, and thematic possibilities within the range of associated genres. How do literary works and forms shape portrayals of spiritual life? What might literature accomplish in the spiritual life within writer and reader? How might the literary space of religiously inflected life writing offer particular theological content?

Persona Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 15, 2023

Call for Papers Special Issue of Persona Studies
*Persona and Inter(Face)*

Editor: Amanda du Preez

The human face is an encounter; it acts as a threshold between worlds
and spheres. The face is often associated with a persona, a mask, a
screen, a surface, and even a mirage. Historically the face has been
mediated through the portrait, photography, the cinematic moving image,
and, lately, by the selfie (to mention only the obvious examples).

"Postcolonialism, Postcommunism and Postmodernism" 5th International Interdsiciplinary Conference

InMind Support
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 7, 2023

Conference online (via Zoom)


27-28 July 2023


​In our postmodern world there are a lot of questions that should be re-considered and re-defined. What does it mean to fight against colonialism and racism in the world of migration crisis and xenophobic attitudes towards minorities? What does it mean to be a postcommunist country in the face of the common nostalgia for order and rules? How is it possible to have a national identity being aware of the relative character of every national feature?

“nothing in life now ever seems to end. Chemists tell you matter is never completely destroyed, and mathematicians tell you that if you halve each pace in crossing a room, you will never reach the opposite wall, so what an optimist I would be if I thought that this story ended here.”

– Graham Greene, The End of the Affair
