Wednesday, January 1, 2020

What do we want? A better world? A cleaner world? At this point, many of us might merely settle for a world that isn’t barrelling towards inevitable environmental destruction.  So, what do we want? Climate Action! What does climate action look like in the academy? It looks like the expansion of digital resources and the cultivation of better disposal and recycling habits on university campuses. It also looks like the cultivation of eco-critical theory and research. Earth is our home. It is the only habitable planet for us. Unfortunately, while it shows evidence of the brilliance of humanity, the state of the Earth also represents our greed and short-sightedness.

Call for Abstracts - Edited Collection on Father Figures in Animated/Cartoon TV Shows for Mature Audiences


 “The handy thing about being a father is that the historic standard is so pitifully low.”

- Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize Winner


 

The trope of the “hapless dad,” clumsy and useless with his own children, appears in storytelling across several mediums—especially in animated cartoons on TV. For many contemporary cartoon shows for adult audiences, however, this trope appears especially pronounced, often leaning into the stereotype that competent childrearing is "women's work" for the benefit of comedy.

(Sub)Merged, UBC English Graduate Conference

Endnotes, The University of British Columbia English Graduate Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 1, 2020

Located at the edge of Vancouver’s city limits, the University of British Columbia is perched on the edge of an ocean. Down an interminable set of winding stairs is Wreck Beach, and with a few more steps you are submerged in the saltwater of the sea. As a West Coast school, the possibility of submersion is always waiting at our door. What does this mean in a time of climate catastrophe and imminent sea level rise? How do we navigate relationships to the ocean, to submersion, and drowning in these chaotic times?  Submersion evokes the existence of multiple, nuanced truths and interpretations.

Captivating Criminality 7 Conference: Crime Fiction: Memory, History and Revaluation July 2-4 Newton Park Campus, Bath Spa University

International Crime Fiction Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 15, 2020

The International Crime Fiction Association is delighted to announce its seventh conference, which will be held in Bath, UK. Building upon and developing ideas and themes from the previous six successful conferences, Memory, History and Revaluation, will examine the ways in which Crime Fiction as a genre necessarily incorporates elements of the past – the past in general and its own past, both in terms of its own generic developments and also in respect of true crime and historical events. The CfP will thus offer opportunities for delegates to engage in discussions that are relevant to both past and present crime writing.

Spectral Visions Press (University of Sunderland) are now accepting submissions for a short story collection, Spectral Visions: Ghost Stories.

Guidelines for Submission:

• Pieces should adopt tropes of the Gothic genre.
