The Uncanny in Language, Literature and CultureInternational Conference15 August 2020 – London, UKorganised byLondon Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”.

Food is a basic foundation of culture and society, it is vital to our health and well-being and it plays a significant role in our everyday creative engagement with nature.

If you are familiar with made for SyFy films featuring cgi monsters and bloodshed, or if you have mistakenly rented a film that you mistook for a current blockbuster, or if you are still digging through the five dollar bins at various department stores then you are probably familiar with films like Sharknado, Mercenaries, Sinister Squad, American Virgin, Sunday School Musical, and Snakes on a Train, all courtesy of The Asylum. Functioning similarly to American International Pictures did in the 1950s, this film company produces the same sorts of fare, accompanied by similar exploitation impulses.

Reflecting/Reflected Modernity: Sites of Interface between the Occidental and the Oriental
Call for Papers
‘Modernity’ tends to be used, within the humanities, to refer to something seemingly exclusively Western. Within the canonical histories of modernity, especially in literature studies and the discipline of history of art, ‘Western’ countries are seen as the instigators of what we now see as artistic and cultural modernism. ‘Modernity’, however, was not created in isolation within Western spheres. It came into existence through an intercultural exchange and reciprocal relationship between ‘East’ and ‘West’.

Special themed issue with guest editor Emily Rollie
In its initial issues, PARtake has explored key topics related to the dynamic field of Performance-as-Research, including the modes of performing research, the ethics of participating in research, activism in PAR, and the rich intersections of embodiment and somatic intelligence in PAR. This issue continues in that trend, specifically examining the relationship between PAR and pedagogy – the ways pedagogy intersects with, is influenced by, and is utilized in PAR.
Theatre Annual is the oldest theatre periodical continuously published in the United States. It is dedicated to examining theatre and performance of the Americas. We construe “America” broadly to include North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean Islands. Articles may treat work in these geographic areas or work from these areas that is presented elsewhere in the world. We welcome articles on the history and ethnography of performance, drawing from such areas as theatre studies, performance studies, popular culture, music, anthropology, dance, communication, philosophy, folklore, history, and areas of interest that cross disciplinary lines.

Economies of Dispossession, March 13-14, 2020
Over the past 10 years, we have witnessed a number of efforts to reimagine African life from the vantage of a future “yet to come,” to borrow AbdouMaliq Simone’s resonant expression. From new science fiction narratives that seeks to delineate their own visions of tomorrow, to scholarly collections that seek to trace the prospects of emergent phenomena, to nonprofit organizations and think tanks that have organized festivals, workshops, and art projects devoted to imagining African futures, there has been a growing sentiment that African thinkers would benefit from taking an active role in the construction of future-oriented imaginaries.

As people migrate, they are drawn to the familiar in their need to adapt to the unfamiliar, forming communities whose cohesiveness emanates from shared value systems and experiences. Culturally homogeneous networks constructed by migrant communities in the U.S. both shape and are shaped by the spaces they occupy. From these socially constructed spaces (like Mary Louise Pratt’s contact zones), which can be construed as physical, emotional, intellectual, or creative, immigrant groups negotiate their position in U.S. society. This transnational lens affects both individuals’ perception of their place in society and their success or failure to thrive in this new home.
