CFP: Princeton University Graduate Conference

Deadline: February 1, 2022

 Princeton University Graduate Conference, May 13-14, 2022
*To Be Held In-Person*
The ‘Byt’ of Literature:
Literary Personalities, Scholarly Discourses and the Modes of Their Production

Co-organizers: Lidia Tripiccione and Benjamin Musachio, Princeton University

 Keynote Speaker: Kevin M.F. Platt, Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Term Professor in the Humanities, University of Pennsylvania

In his most famous article, Boris Eikhenbaum showed how Gogol’s Overcoat was made: a literary text was presented as a product of meticulous fabrication. In his later work, Eikhenbaum similarly explored the constructed nature of the environment (byt) in which literature is produced. Focusing on social and artistic milieus, Eikhenbaum asked: How are poets and literary figures “made?” In responding to this question, we seek to refine, recast, and expand the Formalist mode of inquiry.

Conference/CFP: Varlam Shalamov in the Context of Contemporaneity

Deadline: March 1, 2022

Vladimir Dahl Russian State Literary Museum, Moscow

June 23–24, 2022

Vladimir Dahl Russian State Literary Museum organizes the Conference dedicated to the Russian writer Varlam Shalamov and invites proposals on the works and life of Shalamov in the context of literature and arts of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Varlam Shalamov was an attentive observer of the events of his epoch. His diaries and letters are full of accurate remarks and portraits of his contemporaries. His works cannot be examined without the context of the epoch, the history of literature, and culture of the twentieth century. It is important how Shalamov is read and understood now. Poets and writers who found themselves with Shalamov in the same epoch, also tried in their own way to reflect on the twentieth century in all the senses that this concept means.

Columbus, OH

The Midwest Slavic Association and The Ohio State University (OSU) Center for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (CSEEES) are pleased to announce the 2022 Midwest Slavic Conference to be held at OSU in Columbus, OH on April 1-3, 2022. The conference committee invites proposals for papers on all topics related to the Slavic, East European, and Eurasian world, particularly those that explore issues surrounding climate change: the usage and depletion of natural resources, environmental changes, as well as issues surrounding the changing climates in politics, society, and culture (eco-criticism, eco-poetics, etc.). How has climate change affected the way we live today and our vision of humanity’s future, and how might these issues have inadvertently impacted other climates? The conference theme of climate change will naturally tie some conversations to the present and future, but we welcome investigations of the past as well, in addition to papers that do not align with the theme.
