The global lockdown has made us confined to our primeval cave-like shelter of home. The postgobal earth is in suspended condition, as if it needs some time for hibernation. In the face of increasing number of death, we all are seeking solutions, exploring options and thinking of new patterns of life. Surely the world will change permanently after this and if we are fortunate enough to see the post-Corona world, we will reminisce about our pre-Corona days. In between, during the uncertain lockdown period, we expect humankind to respond to the pandemic in creative ways.

We are seeking submission of creative works for a Special Collection to be created from the submitted works in Continuous Publication mode.

Writing Across the Curriculum (MMLA) (Deadline Extended)

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 20, 2020

The Midwest Modern Language Association’s 2020 conference theme is “Cultures of Collectivity.” The conference will take place November 5-8 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

 

The Writing Across the Curriculum permanent session will explore this theme by considering how writing pedagogy can encourage students to make connections between their sense of self and the community at large. Academia is rarely limited to the space of the classroom. Often lines between the individual student, the university space, and the local community blur to facilitate a deeper engagement with learning.

 

Topics might include, but are not limited to:

Psychoanalysis, Politics, Oppression and Resistance (edited collection)

APW
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 1, 2020

Confronted with a shortage of literature on actual poverty and homelessness in the field of analysis, Patricia Gherovici has commented that “One might talk about the psychoanalysis of poverty,” but one could perhaps moreeasily “talk about the poverty of psychoanalysis” (“Psychoanalysis” 221). Gherovici underscores the apparentexclusion of the poor’s access to psychoanalysis and the prejudice involved in the psychoanalytic exclusion of the poor. In Canada and the United States, contemporary psychoanalysis sometimes has the reputation of being only accessible for society’s educated or elite class at an immense financial cost where the privatized treatment is likely to last for many years.

MMLA 2020 Popular Culture Permanent Session CFP: Fan Responses to Popular Culture (deadline extended)

Tuesday, April 7, 2020 - 3:24pm
Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 15, 2020

Due to the current circumstances, the deadline for submitting a paper for this panel has been extended to April 15

Last year, when Fox canceled the television show Lucifer, a fan campaign to save the show resulted in Netflix picking it up for another season. This was not an isolated incident. Collectives of fans, gathering both online and in person, often influence the longevity, the content, the dispersal, and the afterlife of their favorite shows, games, songs, and other popular culture artifacts. In response to the conference theme “Cultures of Collectivity,” the popular culture permanent session invites papers that investigate how both planned and spontaneous groups appropriate or influence popular culture.

Friday, May 8, 2020

In the creation of nation-states during the 19th and 20th century, standardized and official languages were of key importance to develop feelings of belonging to social collectivities through the public sphere. However, contemporary global neoliberal conditions have put pressure on Romantic notions such as belonging, togetherness and culture, that used to be seen as the building blocks of national identity. Postcolonial and decolonial debates have, furthermore critiqued the presumed monolingual character of communities and nations (Yildiz 2012; Mignolo 2003) by pointing to their linguistic heterogeneity.

To the surprise of analyst expectations, at the end of 2019 Netflix recorded a record-high growth in subscribers and revenue outside of the United States, specifically in its Asia-Pacific region. The growth in this region is attributed to the establishment of regional offices and the commissioning of local productions, the success of which travels even further afield in the wealth of pan-Asian content making its way into Netflix’s global catalogue. Streaming and content partnerships with iQiyi (China), jtbc (South Korea), Fuji TV (Japan) and Dharmatic Entertainment (India), for instance, have also helped Netflix establish itself as a brand with a focus on a global audience.

“Listening is essential to the engagement with most of our media, albeit that the act of listening which is embedded in the word ‘audience’ is rarely acknowledged. It is a no less curious absence in theories of the public sphere, where the objective of political agency is often characterized as being to find a voice - which surely implies finding a public that will listen, and that has a will to listen” (Lacey viii).

Call for Papers on the Histories and Philosophies of Carceral Education

The rates of incarceration worldwide continue to rise, prompting important questions about the legal and social circumstances moving so many people behind bars, and also about what happens to people during a period of imprisonment. Education in prison and of prisoners has a long history, marked by key moments in transformation as education in prison has shifted from some emphasis on religion, sin and redemption to economic rationalism.
