Questions of crime and punishment are writ large across many of our social and political spaces. We see injustice navigated on social media and protested in the streets, spun on film and fought in music. The narratives of criminals and law makers, sometimes valorised and sometimes vilified, surround us.

[UPDATE] Ontologies: Special issue of The Comparatist

updated: 
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 2:36pm
The Comparatist
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

We welcome contributions that examine the turn to ontology in the humanities and the social sciences. What does the shift to ontology signify? What is it purporting to correct or overcome? What is its relation to prior turns (such as the linguistic turn and the cultural turn)? Is the turn to ontology an attempt to liberate continental philosophy from its infatuation with language and power, from its obsession with mediation, relationality, and subjectivity? What are the politics of this turn to ontology? Is it more receptive to non-European thought and to the nonhuman? What kind of philosophy or literary theory emerges when ontology is taken as the starting point?  

Topics of interest could include:

Object-Oriented Ontology

MMLA Panel

updated: 
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 2:36pm
Science and Fiction Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 5, 2019

Taking up the MMLA conference theme, “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgängers,” the panel for Science and Fiction seeks proposals engaging the presence of the double in fiction inflected or inspired by science, medicine, or technology; the fields’ theories or methods; or their practitioners. Oftentimes, the double is associated with the horror genre and presented as emblematic of Freud’s ideas about the uncanny, or the unheimlich (unhomely is the literal translation). The term describes the feeling of unease or fear one gets from experiencing something familiar turned uncomfortably strange. Fred Botting, however, notes that horror and science fiction each “give form to a sense of otherness” (Botting, 2008, 131).

I am seeking contributors from across the disciplines for a proposed collection of essays on the Federal Writers’ Project (FWP). As the first multidisciplinary retrospective of the FWP, Rewriting America: The Federal Writers’ Project and its Ongoing Impact on American Culture will address two important questions: What impact did the FWP have on American culture AND how can this Depression-era program guide us in the future?

This proposed collection is currently under review by a university press.
