2017 Essay and Book Prizes
Kate Hayles announced that graduate student member Dagmar Van Engen’s essay “Disordered Time and Alien Natural Law: Queer Invertebrate Evolution in At the Mountain of Madness” won the Bruns Prize, judged by Amanda Gould. The essay “reconfigures the edges of H.P. Lovecraft’s fiction and redefines boundaries of fiction’s use in thinking queerness, queer hi/stories, and queer temporalities.”
Carol Colatrella announced that judges Blake Leland and Jennifer Tuttle awarded the Schachterle Prize to Dahlia Porter’s essay “Specimen Poetics: Botany, Reanimation, and the Romantic Collection” (Representations, July 2017), “which traces the origin of the modern literary anthology, exploring its genesis in late seventeenth and eighteenth-century botanical aims and representational practices.”
Bob Markley announced that Julian Yates (English, University of Delaware) won the Kendrick Book Prize for the book Of Sheep, Oranges, and Yeast: A Multispecies Impression (University of Minnesota Press). Posthuman Series editor Cary Wolfe and press editor Doug Amato accepted on Yates’s behalf. The Short List of runners-up: Lowell Duckert (West Virginia University Press), For All Waters: Finding Ourselves in Early Modern Wetscapes (University of Minnesota Press); Scott Selisker (University of Arizona Press), Human Programming: Brainwashing, Automatons, and American Unfreedom (University of Minnesota Press); and Rajani Sudan, The Alchemy of Empire (Fordham University Press).
SLSA 2017 Wrap-Up Topics Sunday, November 12, 2017 Notes by Carol Colatrella & Ron Broglio
Attendees: Ron Broglio, Adam Nocek, John Hay, Dennis Summers, Steven Loo, Maria Whiteman, Alice Gibson, Celina Osuna, Carol Colatrella
Hotels: Offered good rates, except for the much higher Wednesday rate at the Graduate. Residence Inn was praised for its value. The Saturday dance at Graduate was also problematic due to the building layout.
Recommendations: arrange for some Wednesday rooms at the conference rate or at least a lower rate than the rack rate. Carefully negotiate with hotel about appropriate spaces. The conference has grown—likely we could use larger room blocks. SLSA 2017 had two hotels. Each had 75 rooms Thursday then 85 rooms Friday and Saturday. There was still a demand for rooms so we added another 30 rooms/night at a third hotel.
Meeting Facilities & Technology Support: ASU’s excellent facilities and technology support were praised.
Business Lunch: Charging $10 for the lunch (which cost $30 per lunch) did engender some resentment, and there were still many empty seats, meaning some people paid for lunch but did not attend. Although only attendees with tickets were supposed to attend, at a certain point organizers recognized that the empty seats meant anyone present could be seated for lunch; however, some attendees had already left the venue. Also, many attendees did not understand what a business lunch meant.
Recommendations: Re-brand the lunch as a Members’ Lunch. Publicize the lunch (and perhaps other plenary events) at the registration desk with a sign. Figure out whether charging encourages participation.
Book Exhibit: Meeting organizers pointed out the incredible amount of work required to communicate with publishers because of the distributed work in these presses: one must negotiate and track arrangements with marketing, editorial, shipping, etc. other units.
Recommendation: Make sure that there is a person or two delegated by the meeting organizers to clarify arrangements with presses. Contact Ron for names of Press contacts. Presses at SLSA 2017 included Edinburgh, Bloomsbury, Scholars Choice, Penn State, and Minnesota.
Art on the program: art panels, exhibits & receptions, workshops were praised.
Recommendations: Continue to make available opportunities to exhibit art in association with receptions. Continue to encourage artists to participate and underwrite their costs. Continue to encourage panels and workshops on art, particularly in close proximity to other events.
Volunteers & Graduate Student Participation: SLSA 2017 had thirty volunteers, largely graduate students from ASU and graduate student attendees from other institutions. Their efforts received praise. Most volunteers received free registration and a t-shirt; graduate student volunteers thanked organizers for the opportunity to save money on the conference fee and were grateful for SLSA and SLSA NSF travel funds. Two (volunteer coordinator and print program designer) were paid nominal sums for their coordination, management, and design contributions. A graduate student designed the popular t-shirt based on input from PHUN participants; a number of attendees asked to purchase t-shirts, but these were not produced in quantity. We did pay one program organizer $1,500 for hourly work (at $15/hour). Organizers will likely give core volunteers who worked over 15hrs a small payment (approx. $150-200 each).
Recommendations: Continue to involve graduate students and offer local and visiting students free registration for their volunteer work on the conference. Have graduate students design a t-shirt for volunteers and for sale; profits can help support graduate student travel expenses.
Creative writing readings: excellent location for three panels including SLSA and local writers in a comfortable, cozy space with a local creative writer “host.” There was not any testimony about the creative writing workshops, but perhaps the organizers can be asked about how things went.
Recommendations: connect creative writing panels with local creative writers who can participate. Consult organizers of the two SLSA 2017 creative writing workshops to find out how these worked out and if they recommend improvements.
Professionalization panels/workshops: Ian Bogost’s and Christopher Schaberg’s NEH Object Lessons workshop praised as an opportunity for attendees to receive professional training in journalism. Discussion also considered how to introduce more professional topics to assist graduate students.
Recommendations: Ask Ian Bogost about developing a similar workshop for SLSA 2018. Also develop one or two conversations on the program that center on professional topics and include senior faculty, particularly those who have served in administrative roles and can advise/mentor about opening stages of career. (Steven Loo, a former dean, is willing.)
SLSA conference submission site: The site is a bit cumbersome for entering panels.
Recommendation: Wayne Miller, Electronic Resources Coordinator, should look into improvements or a new system.
Publishing conference program: Attendees appreciated being able access the program with abstracts online and receiving a print program at the meeting. The SLSA 2017 program was praised for its clarity.
Recommendation: Conference organizers and Wayne should look into developing a mobile app for the program.
SLSA 2018 Conference “Out of Mind,” November 15-18, 2018, Toronto, Canada
Plenary Speakers: Jack Halberstam and Skawennati
Site Coordinators: David Cecchetto (York University) and Marcel O’Gorman (University of Waterloo)
We’re all out of our minds, in more ways than one. Some things we consciously put out of mind in order to think, while others gain their potency precisely from having always been outside of mind ‘proper.’ Madness, post- and pre-neuroscience, precognition, superstition, stupidity (bêtise), and bureaucracy all obtain on the question of our minds and their relation to thinking. (For further description, see the announcement in the 2017 program and information on the SLSA website.)
For individual papers, contributors should submit a 250-word abstract along with title and affiliation. Pre-organized panel submissions, which might include three or four papers per panel, should include an additional paragraph describing the rubric and proposed title of the panel. Roundtables, alternative format panels, and the like are encouraged. Submit all proposals and register for the conference at http://litsciarts.org/slsa18.
SLSA 2018 Paper/Panel Proposal Due Date: March 1, 2018, with notification of acceptance by June 2018.

2018 Travel Awards: SLSA provides a limited number of travel awards for underfunded individuals attending the annual conference. Members of SLSA who present at the annual conference may apply for travel subventions. An applicant should email name, title of SLSA presentation, an indication of how long one has been a member of SLSA, and any information about funding for the conference to the Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1. Please provide estimated travel expenses and the amount of support (if any) anticipated from other sources. If you have received travel support from SLSA in the past, please include information about that support (when and how much). SLSA officers will review applications and approve funds for as many as our budget permits; preference will be given to students and those most in need. Each person awarded funds will be presented with a check at the conference business meeting.
2018 SLSA NSF Travel Grants: SLSA is a member of a consortium of science societies (led by the History of Science Society) that have received funding from the US National Science Foundation (NSF) to support travel costs to the annual SLSA meeting for graduate students, independent scholars, artists, and recent PhD members who present papers or are involved in governance activities at the conference. The maximum award will be $1,000 for international travel and $500 for domestic travel (airfare will only be provided for travel on U.S. flag air carriers, or on airlines with code-share agreements, or under open skies agreements as stipulated by NSF requirements). Any other airlines, including British Air, Air Berlin, etc. are ineligible unless the flight is code-shared with a US carrier. Please note that, even though airlines may belong to the same “Alliance” (e.g., Star Alliance), their routes don’t automatically have a codeshare. The travel award will be provided as a reimbursement for expenses upon receipt of an official expense report, the appropriate receipts, and documentation of student status for those graduate students applying; these documents must be printed and mailed within 10 days of the conference to Carol Colatrella, LMC, Georgia Tech, 686 Cherry St., Atlanta, GA 30332-0165. A US citizen requesting reimbursement from employment and residence abroad should provide a copy of his/her US passport. SLSA NSF funds can only be awarded to SLSA members who are graduate students, independent scholars, artists, or recent PhDs with formal roles at the meeting. An awardee must be a 2018 SLSA member who is a US citizen or a graduate student enrolled in a US higher education institution. See http://litsciarts.org/awards/

ANTHROPOSCENE: NEW SLSA BOOK SERIES FROM PENNSYLVANIA STATE UNIVERSITY PRESS:AnthropoScene is a new book series from the Pennsylvania State University Press, published in collaboration with SLSA. While not all scientists have accepted the term “anthropocene” as part of the geological timescale, the idea that humans are changing the planet and its environments in radical and irreversible ways has provoked new kinds of cross-disciplinary thinking about relationships among the arts, human technologies, and nature. This is the broad, cross-disciplinary basis for books published in AnthropoScene. Books in this series will include specialized studies for scholars in a variety of disciplines as well as widely accessible works of interest to broad audiences. They will examine, in a variety of ways, relationships and points of intersection among natural, biological, and applied sciences and literary, visual, and performing arts. The AnthropoScene series represents the depth and breadth of work being done by scholars in literature, science, and the arts, putting innovative juxtapositions within reach of specialists and non-specialists alike.
Series Editors are Lucinda Cole and Robert Markley, both at the University of Illinois. Series Advisory Board members are Stacy Alaimo, University of Texas at Arlington; Ron Broglio, Arizona State University; Carol Colatrella, Georgia Institute of Technology; Heidi Hutner, Stony Brook University; Stephanie LeMenager, University of Oregon; Christopher Morris, University of Texas at Arlington; Laura Otis, Emory University; Will Potter, Washington, D.C.; Ronald Schleifer, University of Oklahoma; Susan Squier, Penn State University; Rajani Sudan, Southern Methodist University; and Kari Weil, Wesleyan University.
Submissions to the AnthropoScene series should include a three- to five-page proposal outlining the intent of the project, its scope, its relation to other work on the topic, and its intended audience(s). Please also include two to three sample chapters, if available, and your CV. Questions or submissions? Contact Penn State Press: Kendra Boileau, Editor-in-Chief, at email@example.com or (814) 867-2220. Or email the series editors: Lucinda Cole at firstname.lastname@example.org and Robert Markley at email@example.com
