Lateral, the journal of the Cultural Studies Association, seeks submissions for a unique collection of essays: Years in Cultural Studies.
What forgotten historical moments or contexts shaped the trajectory of cultural studies? How have individual scholars and broader social movements contributed to the cultural studies we know today? The special section ofLateral—“Years in Cultural Studies”—seeks to answer these questions and more through essays that interrogate cultural studies’ diverse, fragmented, and provocative history. Essays in this collection focus on specific years in the history of Cultural Studies.
The Other in Narratives of Rival Nations
This panel seeks papers that examine the representation of the ethnic Other in literatures of rival nations or ethnic groups in twentieth and twenty-first century children’s and young adult fiction from around the world.

2022 sees the fortieth anniversary of cinematic action icon, John Rambo. From his first outing as an embittered, lonely, scarred relic of the Vietnam War to his latest gung-ho, all-guns blazing, machete-chopping, dynamiting Trump-value supporting outing, Rambo remains an important part of the action film.
New Ways of Thinking About Modernism and the Left
Scholars have explored modernism’s relationship both with the political right, broadly construed (fascism, nationalism, etc.) and the political left (feminism, pacifism, and Marxism in its time, how it anticipates disability studies in our time, etc.). In the spirit of MSA 2020’s stream topics on crip modernisms, activism, and environmentalism, this panel explores new paths for scholarship on modernism and the left.
Rhoda Broughton (1840-1920) was considered one of the queens of the circulating library in Victorian England. Broughton is the author of more than twenty novels and a collection of short stories, the latter featuring supernatural and mysterious elements. Her first two novels, Cometh up as a Flower and Not Wisely but too Well, earned her the reputation of a sensation writer; they were followed by other works containing sensational elements and subject-matter, and featuring rebellious, impetuous, passionate but often naïve heroines. She later resorted to one-volume novels in which she revealed skill and depth. These gems include A Beginner, Lavinia and Mamma.

Transnationalism is both a conservative force, structurally implicated in nationalism and capitalist modernity, and the potential ground for diasporic, mestiza, and cosmopolitan subversions. Within literary study, it operates as both a descriptor diagnosing intertextuality and communication and a methodology for research and remaking periodization.

The Department of Ethnic Studies at Bowling Green State University, Ohio, is excited to host the 2020 Association for Ethnic Studies conference. In conjunction with the department’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of BGSU’s Ethnic Studies program, the conference will be an opportunity to look back upon the history of the scholarly field of ethnic studies and the social movements that forced the academy to accommodate it. In celebrating our history, we are also mindful of assessing our contemporary moment and the challenges of struggles for justice and equality in the future. We will meet soon after either the beginning of the post-Trump era or its continuation.
