On behalf of the Editorial Board of Culture, Theory and Critique, I would like to provide an update on our journal’s operations during this difficult time. We recognise that many authors and reviewers will have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in different ways and may thus not be able to meet deadlines or to carry out tasks that seemed entirely feasible but a few weeks ago at all. Please know that we understand entirely and reach out if ever you wish to discuss how we can work together for a positive result – and please forgive any automated reminders that still fly your way from our systems.

“The Ludic Outlaw: Medievalism, Games, Sport, and Play,” a special issue

updated: 
Thursday, April 16, 2020 - 1:36pm
The Bulletin of the International Association for Robin Hood Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 31, 2020

From the early Atari single-player arcade game Outlaw to more recent videogames such as Activision Blizzard’s multiplayer Overwatch, modern digital outlaws have long been popular characters in gaming culture. These characters often work to resist authoritarianism within their respective gaming worlds, and they frequently evoke much older outlaw representations, such as the Robin Hood of medieval ballads, by embodying popular definitions of justice and communal welfare.

[When this call for abstracts was submitted two months ago, we all lived in a different world.  Recognizing that academic lives have been disrupted as we have adjusted to online teaching as well as other responsibilities at home, I have extended the deadline for abstracts.  I also realize that many scholars have not been able to go to their offices or institution library during this time and consult materials.  If this is your situation and you still want to submit an abstract, please send me an email and I will work with you.]

Relgion and the Marketplace
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 1, 2020

We are seeking one or two chapters to fill out our edited collection Religion and the Medieval and Early Modern Global Marketplace (already under contract with Routledge). Ideally the chapter(s) would provide a case study that addresses some intersection of economy (market, exchange) and religion (faith, sprituality) in medieval and/or early modern Africa. How did matters of faith enter the marketplace in a specific region of Africa? How did religion facilitate or provide resistance to the growing slave trade? How did religions adapt to changing markets?

ON-LINE CONFERENCE

CFP:

It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.

    Our first conference on racism, nationalism and xenophobia took place in March 2016. The second adition was held in June 2017. We hosted over 80 scholars representing universities and research institutions from all over the world.

Renaissance Drama: The Politics of Protest

Political protest has long been central to literary and cinematic histories from ideological and artistic manifestos to political pamphlets to satirical novels and realist cinema. They remain powerful vehicles for stimulating public debate, issuing calls to action, speaking truth to power, and heightening awareness of social ills.  Despite censorship, marketplace economics, and national politics, literature, film, and numerous other modes of cultural / aesthetic production continue to play an important role not only as agents of social critique but also as agents of social change.

Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative. They can be festive, merry, and joyous in their celebrations, or (also simultaneously) sombre, solemn, and reflective in their commemorations. They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

Veterans Studies is a growing field of research that addresses the significant impact of military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. This special panel session invites papers that explore any aspect of military service in literature, including those that reflect the conference theme of “City of God, City of Destruction.” Outside the trauma of military existence is the rich sense of community that exists in the brotherhood of service to one’s country. Military bases are cities unto their own. They exist as denizens of destruction. This session invites papers that explore the many facets of military experience exhibited in literature, theater, film, and poetry written about or by military veterans.

Questioning the Human: Posthuman accounts in Popular Culture

updated: 
Saturday, April 11, 2020 - 12:08am
Language, Literature, and Interdisciplinary Studies (LLIDS)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 30, 2020

Two broadly anthropocene concerns—the ‘human’ condition along with the condition of this human planet, Earth—bear on all discursive practices central to contemporary areas of research in humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Both these concerns reconfigure ways in which humans have come to make sense of themselves and of the world which they share with other forms of life. The anthropocene—ramifications of Cartesian vision of human subject, the giver of meaning, that ultimately subdues all nature and co-existing life-forms—however is challenged by a posthuman turn in the latter half of 20th Century that trenchantly undercuts the foundations of humanism catapulting from the set boundaries established by the ideal of Enlightenment.

Call for Papers – Uncharted

updated:

Łukasz Muniowski
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 30, 2020

 

Abstracts are sought for a peer-reviewed collection of philosophical essays related to the Naughty Dog action-adventure video game series Uncharted (2007-2017). The essays should refer to the games that are considered the canon of the series: Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. As the production of the movie adaptation of the game has been once again put on hold, and it seems that Naughty Dog will not develop new entries in the series in the foreseeable future, a book of essays seems rather timely.
