In December 2012, a young woman named Jyoti Singh was raped in New Delhi while returning home after watching a film with her friend. The incident quickly became a sensational news story in both national and international media, leading to an unprecedented amount of popular protests in New Delhi and other Indian cities. To be precise, the Jyoti Singh Rape Case proved to be a watershed moment in the history of the contemporary gendered mobilizations in India, which unleashed a series of questions for the Indian women’s movement.

Oxford Research in English, Issue 7: Craft

 

“In my craft or sullen art” -Dylan Thomas

 

Thomas is one in a long line who self-reflexively meditates on his own work. Indeed, a writer’s craft has been the topic of much discussion both by critics and by authors themselves, considering the interplay between a writer’s natural ability and her tendency to consciously create, between the ingenuity of her ideas and the discipline of putting them into practice. In doing so, Thomas, along with others, bring to the forefront an epistemological question: Is ‘crafting’ in opposition to art?

In his seminal work The Souls of Black Folk, W.E.B. Du Bois wrote that the single most pressing issue facing the United States was the color line. More than 100 years later, the issue of race remains a pressing one for the U.S. and research suggests that the racial divide permeates our culture. Furthermore, numerous studies have found that today’s college students are not sufficiently prepared to interact and communicate effectively in a culturally-diverse and globalized workplace and do not possess many of the 21st century competencies necessary for success and engagement in such diverse environments. But in comparison, we wonder how prepared are faculty, administrators, and staff to cultivate a space where these skills can develop?

Perspectives on Music Production: Gender in Music Production

 

===============================================

Call for Contributions

===============================================

 

Deadline for proposals: 9th April 2018

The music production industry has, for many years, been viewed as male dominated. Despite many examples of diversification and acknowledgement of the issues (such as the Audio Engineering Society’s ‘He For She’ campaign), gender representation within music production is considered limited. The editors welcome abstracts for chapters in a forthcoming Routledge edited volume entitled Gender in Music Production. The scope for contributions are listed below.

Writing Across the Curriculum

At its most basic, Writing Across the Curriculum is founded on the core belief summarized by Chris Anson in The WAC Casebook that “writing belongs in all courses in every discipline” (ix).  While guided by this central value, WAC programs must also be inherently flexible, individually designed to best meet the needs of their specific students, faculty, programs, and institutions. This diversity of possible approaches gives us the opportunity to share ideas, techniques, and experiences to explore the flexibility and adaptability of the larger WAC pedagogy.

The Writing Across the Curriculum section welcomes all submissions. Possible topics include but are not limited to:

Call for Essay Proposals on the Writings of Jesmyn Ward

Special Issue of the Xavier Revew

 

In August 2017, Ron Charles, editor of Book World wrote in the The Washington Post:

          Six years ago, a young, relatively unknown writer from Mississippi published Salvage the Bones. In lush prose that felt determined to sprout off the page, the novel described a            poor African American family struck by Hurricane Katrina. From its modest beginnings, Salvage the Bones went on to win the 2011 National Book Award for Fiction and to                    establish its author, Jesmyn Ward, as one of the most powerfully poetic writers in the country.

Western Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 15, 2018

The 2018 annual conference of the Western Literature Association will take place October 24-27 at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri. “Indigenous Hubs, Gateway Cities, Border States” is derived from this location. This region, at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, has been urban for thousands of years. Cahokia, known for its impressive earthen mounds, is directly across the river from today’s St. Louis, and once housed the largest pre-Columbian civilization north of Mexico, a hub for trade, communication, and transportation throughout indigenous North America. Long before St. Louis was known as the “Gateway to the West,” it was nicknamed “Mound City.”

Since the discovery of DNA the metaphor of writing to the genetic makeup of living beings has been a tempting one to engage. As George and Muriel Beadle wrote in 1966 (and as Marcello Barbieri points to in his essay “What is Biosemiotics?”) “The deciphering of the genetic code has revealed our possession of a language much older than hieroglyphics, a language as old as life itself, a language that is the most living language of all—even if its letters are invisible and its words are buried in the cells of our bodies” (Beadle and Beadle 1966). 

 

CFP for MLA 2019--Beyond Manga: Comics in Asia

updated: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018 - 11:57am
Jessica Gross, for MLA panel
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

The comics world has been hugely influenced by, and in a large part shaped by, Japanese manga. Thus, manga is the center of many discussions about Asian comics in the United States. However, in Comics Studies less attention is given to comics from other Asian countries. This panel seeks to widen the discussion about comics to bring attention to Asian comics outside of Japan, and to interrogate the many visual forms and thematic concerns of Asian comics. Papers on comics from any Asian country other than Japan are welcome; papers must be in English but may discuss comics in any language. This call is for a non-guaranteed panel at the 2019 Modern Language Association Convention in Chicago from January 3-6, 2019.
