This collection attempts to look at the role of digital media as a constructive and disseminating narrative in the world, to delineate a meta-narrative of ‘digital martyrdom’. This collection aims to initiate a study not only on martyrdom in the digital space but a digitisation of martyrdom. It will seek to look especially at the role of mainstream and sponsored media propaganda to locate those interstices in the narratives which subtly subvert narratives of the mainstream mass media. In the first section of the collection, the focus will be on chapters which use as its premise usage of commercial media. The subversion is to be specifically located in the dissemination, language, and reception of the contents of the media matter.

EXTENDED DEADLINE

Call for paper: Aletria v. 28, n.3 (2018) – Early Modern English Literature

Early modern English authors (c. 1453-1789) wrote in a period of unprecedented national and international political, cultural, social, religious, and scientific changes. Literature in English across a range of traditional and alternative genres reflected, resisted, and redefined these developments. We invite papers that identify and analyse the many forms of evidence of the literary engagement with transformative issues, events, and axes within and outside of the British Isles.

Editors of the number: Elizabeth Sauer (Brock University, Canadá) and Luiz Fernando Ferreira Sá (UFMG)

Ariel 50th Anniversary Special Issue

Ariel: a Review of International English Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Ariel: a Review of International English Literature seeks proposals for publication in its 50th Anniversary Special Issue, slated for publication in 2020. This special issue will unpack and explore the tensions and interrelationships between postcolonial studies and Indigenous studies. When Bill Ashcroft, Gareth Griffiths, and Helen Tiffin published The Empire Writes Back (1989), the ensuing recognition of Canada and the United States as products of imperialism and colonization necessarily provoked questions about the people who preceded settlers. Indigenous literary studies became recognized as a necessary missing piece of those conversations.

updated:

Edited collection for Neo-Victorian Studies book series (Brill)
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, July 31, 2018

Recent developments in neo-Victorian cultural production seem to have at least partially acknowledged the steadfast urge put forth by actors, readers/viewers, and critics to include Black experiences in their storyworlds. TV formats like Penny Dreadful (2014-2016), The Frankenstein Chronicles (2015- ), Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (2015-), and Peaky Blinders (2013- ) as well as films such as Wuthering Heights (2011), Belle (2013), and Lady Macbeth (2017) feature Black characters as part of their screenscape.
