Modern Language Association (MLA) International SymposiumThe theme of the 2019 conference is "Remembering Voices Lost". Symposium calls for paper and session proposals that place the humanities at the center of world affairs and encourage debate about the circumstances and potentialities of being in awe of the other that inhabits the self and others. This “being in awe” may produce new forms of conviviality in a world devastated by hatred, poverty, bigotry, and environmental dead ends.
9/21/2018. Paper proposals should include the paper title, a brief abstract, and the speaker’s institutional affiliation (if any). Proposals for panels and roundtables should contain the above items as well as a session chair, abstract, and title. Please use the MLA International Symposium’s submissions portal to submit your paper, session, or roundtable proposal(s). All submissions must be received by 21 September 2018, and participants will be notified of the outcome of the selection process by 3 December 2018.July 23-25, 2019, Lisbon, Portugualhttps://symposium.mla.org/lisbon/remembering-voices-lost/

We Run This Town: Dynastic Literature in Medieval and Renaissance Italian Cities, NeMLA’s 50th Anniversary ConventionThis panel welcomes papers that examine the role of the dynastic family in literary production within the civic context of Medieval and Early Modern Italy, as well as the portrayal of family within this literature itself. How does literature support or subvert the dynastic families that controlled much of the Italian peninsula? From Dante to Tasso, how did Italian writers portray or parody their patrons and the systems of power that upheld them? We especially encourage papers that examine lesser-known families, the role of women in these networks of power, inter-court or transnational relations, and those that employ interdisciplinary approaches.09/30/2018, Papers should be 15-20 minutes in length. Please submit a 250-300 word abstract to the NeMLA website by September 30, 2018: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/17488March 21-23, 2019, Washington, DC

Popular Culture and the Deep Past 2019: Fairies and the FantasticIn the Prologue to Chaucer’s Wife of Bath’s Tale, the narrator reminisces about a time when the land was full of fairies and the Elf Queen danced merrily on the green. In the centuries since Chaucer, fairies, far from disappearing, have lived on in the popular imagination and its creations. This conference is especially interested in Fairies and the Fantastic in the broadly conceived Medieval and Renaissance periods, but it also invites papers that look back to earlier examples of fairy belief or that explore the uses of fairies in later popular culture. All approaches are welcome, from literary, artistic, cinematic, and gaming analyses, to historical and cultural investigations. We also encourage papers with broad geographical scope that examine the ‘presence’ of fairies outside Western Europe--in Scandinavia, Persia, and other parts of the world.10/31/2018, Abstracts for sessions and individual papers should be limited to 250 words.Please submit them along with any questions to cmrs_gaa@osu.eduFebruary 22-23, 2019, Columbus, OHhttps://cmrs.osu.edu/events/popular-culture-and-deep-past-2019-fairies-and-fantastic

American Literature in the World Graduate Conference, Yale UniversityThe conference hopes to broaden the scope of American literature, opening it to more complex geographies, and to a variety of genres and media. To study these and countless other authors is to see that the United States and the world are neither separate nor antithetical, but part of the same analytic fabric. Our conference explores these extended networks through many channels: from the cultural archives circulating across the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans as well as the Caribbean Sea; to the dynamic interactions between indigenous populations and those newly arrived; from the institutions of print, to the tangled ecologies of literature, art, theater, music, and film, to the digital globalism of the present moment.12/15/2018, Please send a 1-page abstract (250-650 words) to americanliteratureintheworld@gmail.com April 5, 2019, New Haven, CThttps://amlitintheworld.yale.edu/2019-conference/
