CALL FOR PAPERS
The University of Portsmouth’s Supernatural Cities research group presents their fourth conference: Magical Cities.
This edited volume will examine intersections of Design and Gender across a range of historical moments, political environments and material categories. We invite readings and materialist critiques of designed objects, exchanges, spaces, instruments, affects and styles as well as evaluations of ‘design practice’ as gendered work, performance, or representation. Of particular interest: contemporary design theory, transnational design events, ecological design, new technocentric or scientific design, posthuman material culture and local design archaeologies as they relate to the politics of gender and agency in our post-millennial era.

The First Heterotopic Junction Graduate Conference in Language, Literature and Culture (HJC-1), which will take place on Saturday 13 April 2019 at Hong Kong Baptist University, is now calling for abstracts.

We are putting together a special issue tentatively called “Dirty places: geographies of waste”. “Waste” is a broad and multifaceted concept, always open to interpretation. We want to keep it that way, partly because we are looking for fresh voices, and partly because we want to facilitate an interdisciplinary conversation. However, for clarity’s sake, waste is here defined as “material that we failed to use” (Gille, 2018). Gille’s succinct definition reads like an updated version of Mary Douglas’s (1966) classic take on “dirt” —“matter out of place” —, this time formulated under the banner of the Anthropocene. For a deeper look into the concept of waste, please read the following texts:
Screen Bodies is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on the intersection of Screen Studies and Body Studies across disciplines, institutions, and media. It is a forum promoting research on various aspects of embodiment on and in front of screens through articles, reviews, and interviews. The journal considers moving and still images, whether from the entertainment industry, information technologies, or news and media outlets, including cinema, television, the internet, and gallery spaces.
Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies is a refereed, peer-reviewed, and born-digital journal devoted to the culture, literature, history, and society of the medieval past. Published semi-annually, the journal collects exceptional examples of work by graduate students on a number of themes, disciplines, subjects, and periods of medieval studies. We also welcome book reviews of monographs published or re-released in the past five years that are of interest to medievalists. For the Fall/Winter 2018 issue we are particularly interested in papers and reviews of books which fall under the current special topic.
