Crime Fiction Studies Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 7, 2020

We are delighted to announce the call for papers for the third issue of our Edinburgh University Press journal Crime Fiction Studies. Arising out of Bath Spa University’s very successful Captivating Criminality conferences, organised by Fiona Peters, and the establishment of the International Crime Fiction Association in 2016, this journal is the first British university press journal focussing on the broad field of crime fiction studies. Crime Fiction Studies publishes two issues per year both in print and online.

Cinematic Representations of Women in Modern Celebrity Culture (1900-1950) (edited collection)

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 7, 2020

We invite proposals for contributions to an edited collection on cinematic representations of women in works of art, poetry, fiction, theater and criticism of the avant-garde. The popularization of film stars such as Blanche Sweet, Mae Marsh, Mary Pickford, Greta Garbo and Brigitte Helm shaped the cultural imaginary of modernity to such an extent that they influenced the creative activity of artists and writers in the years 1900-1950. Questions centering on feminine stardom will set the background of this collection of essays examining the intersections of vanguardism with popular culture, publicity and performance. How are images of femininity circulated and consumed by the spectators of the cinematic medium?

Call for Papers

In Comparative Literature, the increasingly contested field of “World Literature”, and Translation Studies, the notion of the “untranslatability” of literature has gained purchase in recent years, due in part to the work of Emily Apter and the continual rediscoveries of the work of Walter Benjamin. Literary translation is conceived of, in one view, as impossible, and in another view as an activity (even an art form) with infinite possibilities for the translator but minimal responsibilities toward that which is being translated.

Age, Agency, and Agencies and the Migration of Austrian Children and Youth to the U.S.”

updated: 
Tuesday, December 17, 2019 - 11:07am
Jacqueline Vansant, University of Michigan - Dearborn
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 31, 2020

Research on immigration to the United States from Austria after the Anschluss has focused exclusively on adults. Moreover, in contrast to the numerous publications and documentaries focusing on the Kindertransport to England before the outbreak of the war in September 1939, there has been limited attention given Austrian children and youth fleeing National Socialism and migrating to the United States. Despite the failure of the Wagner-Rogers Bill in 1939 to admit 20,000 refugee children, a limited number of children and youth immigrated to the United States, some with their parents, some alone, and some with other children. Consequently, their stories remain a largely untapped resource for scholars and this call seeks to address this lacunae.
