Introduction: About once a month (supply allowing), we post a listing of recently published historical articles about disability (somewhat broadly defined). These articles are usually found on the "current periodicals" shelves at a university library, from the most recent two calendar years (right now, 2019-2020).

This session (of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association [SAMLA] annual conference to be held virtually (due to the pandemic) Nov. 13-15, 2020) welcomes submissions that view Sarah Scott’s 1762 Millenium Hall, Frances Burney’s 1796 Camilla, or any eighteenth-century British novel, through a disability studies or body studies lens. Abstracts addressing the SAMLA conference theme (Scandal! Literature & Provocation: Breaking Rules, Making Texts) are especially welcome.
In this upcoming interdisciplinary online-conference "Narratives of Body and Mind", the Aachen Center for Cognitive and Empirical Literary Studies (ACCELS) wants to connect Master’s students, Ph.D. students and early Post-Docs to examine research in which narrative theory meets narratives of the body, narratives of the mind and the common ground between them. Since the cognitive turn in narrative theory opened up a new research field for literary studies, new and innovative approaches have been developed in various research areas, including the study of narrative.
