Queering Neo-Victorianism Beyond Sarah Waters

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 10:39am
Special Issue of Neo-Victorian Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019

Since the lesbian publishing sensation of the first of Sarah Waters’s trio of neo-Victorian novels, Tipping the Velvet (1998), nineteenth-century queerness has become an increasingly prominent trope across neo-Victorian media and criticism. On the one hand, neo-Victorian queerness functions as a means of recovering marginalised viewpoints and obscured histories, predominantly, though not exclusively, from the LGBTQI+ community. On the other hand, it serves as a strategic tool to negotiate both alliances and tensions between lesbianism and feminism, queer studies and gender theory, or gender-specific and queer-generic positionalities.

deadline for submissions:

I have been approached by Routledge Press to edit a Handbook on Vegan Studies for the press’s Environment and Sustainability division. Handbooks are typically 30-35 chapters, with each chapter being roughly 6000 words. They aim to provide a cutting edge, comprehensive assessment of the field and will be an essential reference title and benchmark publication for the subject. 

 

I am seeking proposals for chapters for the handbook that reflect knowledge of the field and that build on extant work in the discipline. Such proposals might include but are not limited to 

 

Vegan Studies . . . 

 

History

Key figures 

Relationship to animal studies

And critical race studies

Across Europe, the critical engagement with the history of colonialism and its significant ongoing legacies has gained purchase – not least because of the critique, pressure, and demands of postcolonial intellectuals from, or with ties to, Africa, the Caribbean, and Asia. Matters of postcolonial justice, such as reparations to former European colonies, the restitution of human remains and cultural artefacts, and calls for the removal of national symbols and monuments that reproduce racist ideology have gained increased public attention in recent years.

Double the Teaching: the Work of Community College Faculty

updated: 
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:53am
MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

We readily describe the job of university professors as having three components: research, teaching, and service. These same three components manifest themselves in the work of community college faculty. Nevertheless, full-time community college faculty typically have at least double the teaching load of their peers at the university. This much greater emphasis on teaching together with much diminished requirements (and support) for research means the work of a full-time community college instructor has a distinct balance of efforts and outcomes.

 

Science and Fiction Panel Deadline Extended

updated: 
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:53am
MMLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 19, 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).

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 20, 2019

This permanent section of the Midwestern Modern Languages Association organized by the Marxist Literary Group seeks to examine the economics, politics, and aesthetics of remakes, reboots, and readaptations in film, television, and literature.  In 2019 alone, there are over twenty films being released that are remakes, reboots, or readaptations. These films range from Disney’s live-action remakes of Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King to the second chapter of the readaptation of Stephen King’s IT and a reboot of the Child’s Play franchise. Why are these types of films so popular? More specifically, why is there an increasing market for such films and television shows?

The “Shakespeare and Shakespearean Criticism” permanent section of the 2019 Midwest Modern Language Association invites proposals that engage with this year’s conference theme of “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers.” Scholarship that explores issues of duality in Shakespeare’s literature, and in early modern culture broadly, from myriad perspectives will be considered.

Exploring doubling in Shakespeare’s works might begin with attention to any of the following list of topics:

· Double-meanings (linguistics, semantics, multiple interpretations)

· Double entendre

· Twins, doubles in drama

· Doubled literary sources

Riverdale: a comic book turned hit TV show, a comic strip turned murder mystery, a town that is both nowhere and everywhere. Recently renewed for a fourth season, the CW’s popular campy teen drama is notable for its apparent departures from the checkout-stand digests of yore, and has a new witchy counterpart in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as well as a projected spin-off in the development of a Katy Keene series.
