Issue Eight: Invisibility (escaping notice)Call for Papers / Works  

Silence, unseen, unspeakable, inapreciable, faint, concealed, unheard, impalpable. These are terms that fall within the semantic realm of invisibility. How do we begin to speak about, create alongside, sit with, and/or reflect on what cannot -by definition- be reified?  

Invisibility offers the opportunity to retrospectively observe and chronicle what goes (un)intentionally ignored. On the other hand, to acknowledge invisibility is to deterritorialize our sight, to be open to experience what is around us without hierarchizing the senses. Verónica Gerber Bicecci (2010) writes,

deadline: 30th June 2020

Guest editor: Dr. Timothy Barker (University of Glasgow)

In what ways do questions of materiality matter in a time of crisis? What does it mean to explore the matter of things at a time when we are threatened with the annihilation of that matter, its disappearance, or its disintegration? The second issue of MAST journal seeks to answer and further explore these questions through essays from arts practitioners and theorists.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner, Nadia Murad, a former captive of ISIS is an essential reminder of the sacrifices women make during a war which often go unnoticed or unacknowledged as heroic. In countless areas of the Global South, the female body has endured physical and psychological violation. Rape is an effective strategy of war and ethnic cleansing, and the violated community finds it difficult to speak about their fate during the time of war and of peace as well. In most cases, the raped body goes silent, feeling ashamed and fearing retributions from all spheres of life.

 After the success of the Folk Horror in the Twenty First Century conference hosted by Falmouth University, we are holding another related conference in 2020.

 

The present is dark. With the rise of right-wing populism, global migrations and immigrations, continued violence, abuse and crime, prejudice and intolerance, there is increasing anxiety about the future. The Earth itself is under threat from environmental catastrophe and a mass extinction event is anticipated. The collapse of society, morality, and the environment was often also feared in the past, particularly in Gothic, horror and dystopian fictions and texts. What were the monsters of the past? What are our monsters now?
