Theorizing Corporeality in the Climate Change Era

Kritika Kultura
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 31, 2020

Theorizing about the body has never been more urgent than in our current era of climate change. Stacy Alaimo has compellingly argued that “potent ethical and political possibilities emerge from the literal contact zone between human corporeality and more-than-human nature.” In the decade or so since she first penned those words, these ethical and political possibilities have become even more urgent, and the borders of the contact zones themselves have become more blurred. Climate change has had increasingly intimate corporeal implications (especially in the Global South), and the widening gap between the rich and the poor has only exacerbated these matters, as has the global rise in right-wing extremism.

"African Perceptions of the Black Diaspora"

It is not surprising that the diaspora, in its representations of the origin seeks to establish and maintain the links with the dreamed motherland for everything leads to think that the place left, voluntarily or because of political, historical and even natural contingencies, do not leave the diasporic subject. Confronted with an in-between situation, his creative work articulates different identities, opposing cultures and a vague memory of the origin. But how does this origin think and represent its diaspora? This is the central question of this anthology, essentially dedicated to Africa.

What is the place and role of the voice in academic literary inquiry? How is orality treated in disciplinary and institutional contexts which identify most closely with text-based practices? How do we think of the relationships between orality and textuality without subscribing to a progressivist or evolutionary model that privileges text over voice? How is the voice and vocal performance treated and represented in literature? How do the voices of the translator, editor, critic, reader, and student of literature intersect to create literary disciplinary discourse?

Extended Deadline: Call for Abstracts: Critically Reading "The Vampire Diaries"

Book Publication
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 15, 2019

Vampires are a phenomenon that have captivated humans since ancient times, and continue to globally fascinate different target audiences. From vampires in early Chinese traditions to their depiction in early poems such as “The Vampire” by Heinrich August Ossenfelder, to Lord Byron’s “The Vampyre”, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, to vampires in more recent TV series and movies, this creature has not only evoked fear and horror but has also embodied both anxieties as well as desires of the culture and time in which it was created. Consequently, as vampire narratives today have started to go beyond the realms of horror, sometimes even turning the vampire into romantic heroes, they bring new insights to current issues across various fields.

American Literature Association (ALA) Panel Topic Proposal: Alternative Realities

This panel aims to explore alternative realities or perspectives that can be applied to and appear in American literature.  Through this exploration, it is possible to discover new avenues of discussion and interpretation of popular and/or canonical texts, which in turn allows for deeper cultural and social understanding.  Examining work that literally and figurative create alternative realities illuminates social anxieties, era-tied socio-cultural psyches, and continuing cultural patterns of oppression.

This panel is open to any American text, whether it is literature, graphic fiction, TV, video games and so on.
