  “Trauma” and “nightmare” have become the most popular metaphors of evil in our times. The old philosophical discussion about “the nature (or mystery) of Evil” has been replaced by modern (and postmodern) studies on trauma. Nightmare is a more and more frequent phenomenon, and it is being studied by dream and sleep researchers. However, nightmare means not only bad dream – today this term describes also a variety of unpleasant experiences, memories, emotions, so it deserves special attention as an important factor which characterizes human condition.

Soap Operas, a mainstay of popular culture in the US and internationally, are grounded in the serialized nature of their storytelling. While many traditional and long-running network soap operas have declined in viewership or left the airwaves in recent years, serialized storytelling is alive and well in everything from reality television to HBO franchises to primetime and cable series. Video game franchises, webisodes, sports and sports entertainment and advertising campaigns and now even politics and political journalism have harnessed the power and popularity of the serialized form to build and sustain audiences in our increasingly fractured media landscape.

In his book The Racial Contract (1997), the African American philosopher Charles W. Mills describes how western white supremacy has created a system of unnamed power that carries with it a social and political structure conducive to the full exercise of a racialised State and judicial system, capable of determining, and legislating over, the life and death of the bodies it subjugates. It is in this sense that Whiteness, as an established power system, can determine, in those countries with a history of slavery and colonialism, the hegemony of ‘Whites’ in all spheres of society, in contrast to the imposition of a marginalised and lesser social place upon the racialised bodies of ‘Blacks’, ‘Latinos’ and other non-white minorities.

Panel CfP: Affect, Theory, and the Emotions: Literary Feelings from the Age of Sensibility to the 21st Century / ESSE Conference, 31 Aug - 4 Sept 2020, Lyon, France

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

The study of affect and the (history of) emotions has transformed literary criticism in the past few decades. While many critics now agree that studying feeling and literature, in literature, or even through literature, have become legitimate pursuits, there is much debate concerning questions of theory, critical methodology, and interpretation (Greco 2008; Seigworth and Gregg, 2009; Keen 2010; Pedwell 2014). This seminar invites papers taking stock of the opportunities and debates in the wake of the Affective Turn in literary criticism through individual case studies from the 18th to the 21st centuries.

In the wake of the New Modernist Studies, and in particular such pioneering works as Maria DiBattista and Lucy MacDiarmid’s High and Low Moderns (1996), there is increasing interest both in interdisciplinary approaches to modernism and the relationship between modernism and popular culture. Although various writers (Christine Brooke-Rose, Fredric Jameson, Fred Pfeil, Phillip Wegner) have speculated upon the affinities between modernism and science fiction, and have even postulated tentative literary histories, this relationship has been brought into focus by such works as Paul March-Russell’s Modernism and Science Fiction (2015). Since then, other related works have included Charles M.

Diviners and Doomsdayers: The Poet as Prophet

Prophecy and poetry share a long history in American literature. Since Emerson argued for poets as America’s sacred seers, the term “prophet” has been variously applied in criticism of American poetry, to suggest poets who have startling foresight (for example, Robinson Jeffers or W.S. Merwin); to highlight social and political investments (in Muriel Rukeyser or Adrienne Rich); to align human utterances with divinely inspired truths (in Allen Ginsberg or Nathaniel Mackey); or to suggest a trans-historical lineage of prophet-poets, from Jeremiah to Blake to Whitman and beyond.

Signs Special Issue: Rethinking “First Wave” Feminisms

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 - 3:28pm
Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

Over the past several decades, scholarship in a variety of disciplines has challenged the “wave” model of feminism. Inspired by the 2020 centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment, this special issue seeks to rethink “first wave” feminisms in a heterogeneous and expansive way—by pushing geographic, chronological, and ideological boundaries and by broadening the definition of whom we usually think of as early feminists. While contributions on the Nineteenth Amendment in the United States, and the suffrage movement worldwide, are welcome, we also encourage submissions that consider early manifestations of feminism and feminist movements in broad and global terms. Scholars from all disciplines are encouraged to submit their work.
