In Numbered Lives: Life and Death in Quantum Media, scholar and feminist digital humanities practitioner Jacqueline Wernimont examines recordkeeping technologies used to account for human lives and bodies, beginning as early as the 15th century. The book, in part a robust critical historiography, challenges us to interrogate and engage mindfully with contemporary data issues and methods, and with the ways in which they shape our narratives regarding the value of lives and cultures.

Candice L. Pipes
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 15, 2020

This volume, currently under advanced contract with the University Press of Mississippi, is a call for original critical essays, which examine how contemporary African American young adult literature responds to, critiques, sympathizes with, and offers strategies for survival and resistance to black and brown youth. The book, tentatively entitled, Contemporary Young Adult Literature and the Fashioning of Black & Brown Youth is concerned particularly with literature that addresses the complexity and diversity of young adult fiction as it uncovers and critiques individual, communal, systemic and institutionalized power dynamics that effect and work to shape the consciousness of black and brown youth.

Theorizing Wounded Bodies

Gloria Anzaldúa describes the U.S.-Mexico border as “una herida abierta,” as a wound constantly reopened and which facilitates the lives of “those who...go through the confines of the ‘normal’” (25). Here, wounds are the product of national boundaries and produce “the half dead” and other deviant figures. Anzaldúa’s theorization of woundedness opens up a discussion of the wounding function of nation states, addressed in contemporary theoretical frameworks like Jasbir Puar’s discussion of maiming in Palestine and Eunjung Kim’s notion of curative violence in Korea. In both approaches to wounded bodies, theory, like the body, is located in national contexts.

Sunday, March 15, 2020

As Gloria Anzaldúa states in her seminal work on identities and borders, Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza (1987), migrants are marked and defined by the open wounds caused by crossing the frontier. Our own culture is defined by the experience of crossing borders. Thus, we feel impelled to consider the consequences of constant and unavoidable transitions that shape us now as much as they have in the past.

Sunday, March 15, 2020

At a time when a medieval and early modern understanding of literary authority had given way and a concept of intellectual property had not yet been solidly established, eighteenth-century Europe saw a surge of activity involving translation and appropriation of materials produced by others. As well as authors who freely borrowed from the past and present within their own cultures and languages, there was special interest in the translation and appropriation of materials drawn from other cultures and reinterpreted for European audiences.

The 14th Amendment stipulates that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” Yet the conferrence of the rights of U.S. citizenship to Indigenous peoples, descendants of enslaved Africans, nonwhite immigrants, and refugees has been repeatedly contested and warped by and in federal and state law. The full expression of national citizenship by nonwhite peoples in the U.S. South has been mutually shaped and conscripted by the experience and legacies of Jim Crow, indigenous removal, and anti-immigrant and refugee policies.
