The academic journal Messages, Sages and Ages (http://www.msa.usv.ro/), based at the English Department, University of Suceava, Romania, invites contributions for an issue on intercultural conversations. The theme issue is edited by Aoileann Ní Éigeartaigh (Dundalk Institute of Technology).
Calling for papers and teaching demonstrations for a conference on "Rethinking Race and Slavery at 400 Years." The conference will be held on Friday 8 November at Avon Old Farms School, Avon Connecticut (see weblink for details).
Our aim is ambitious: capitalizing on the 400th anniversary of the beginnings of African slavery at Jamestown, the conference seeks to re-evaluate scholarship and teaching about race and slavery across the entire sweep of U.S. history since 1619. Keynote speakers include award-winning scholars Manisha Sinha and Jeffrey O.G. Ogbar.
This panel seeks to understand the relationship between Memory, Female Power, and Subversive Narratives. This is an important area of interest as the world continues to struggle with the growing voices of women who were intimidated, were forced to keep quiet or powerless, and how memory places a function in that role. World literature has long explored power in all its nuance yet it is important to understand how female power has taken control of a male dominated narrative.
