We are soliciting essays for a volume on Shakespeare in the Nordic countries in the period 1890 – 1960. As we currently have a good coverage of the early 20th century, we are primarily interested in contributions that cover cases c. 1920 – 1960. Essays can deal with any of the Nordic countries and focus on translation, performance and/or aspects of influence on particular Nordic authors.

“I know the world is bruised and bleeding, and though it is important not to ignore its pain, it is also critical to refuse to succumb to its malevolence. Like failure, chaos contains information that can lead to knowledge — even wisdom. Like art.” - Toni Morrison. (No Place for Self-Pity, No Room for Fear, included in the 150th-anniversary issue of The Nation.)

Call for Abstracts - Edited Collection on Father Figures in Animated/Cartoon TV Shows for Mature Audiences


 “The handy thing about being a father is that the historic standard is so pitifully low.”

- Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize Winner


 

The trope of the “hapless dad,” clumsy and useless with his own children, appears in storytelling across several mediums—especially in animated cartoons on TV. For many contemporary cartoon shows for adult audiences, however, this trope appears especially pronounced, often leaning into the stereotype that competent childrearing is "women's work" for the benefit of comedy.

In The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas, Gertrude Stein recounts a remarkable interaction with her close friend Pablo Picasso. As they are headed out the door, their conversation slipping between paintings, French lessons, and tea with Picasso’s wife Fernande, Stein pauses:

"Oh I forgot to give you these, said Gertrude Stein handing Picasso a package of newspapers, they will console you. He opened them up, they were the Sunday supplement of american papers, they were the Katzenjammer kids. Oh oui, Oh oui, he said, his face full of satisfaction, merci thanks Gertrude, and we left."

Trust in the Text

Joseph Sterrett, Aarhus University, Denmark
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 31, 2020

The introduction of movable type print in late fifteenth-century Europe began with the noble aspiration of making the Word of God available for all, most famously exemplified by the Gutenberg Bible.  How could early printers have foreseen that their work would prepare the ground for the violence and social turmoil that would follow in the Reformation. Texts, broadly defined, were experiencing a powerful transformation. The trust that people placed in texts came under severe strain even as they were more readily available than ever before.  Texts of all kinds—the sermon of the local clergyman, a pamphlet expressing a political view, poetry, plays, even the Word of God itself—required new methods and systems for declaring their trustworthiness.

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

The Journal of Gender, Ethnic, and Cross-Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary journal with the primary goal to facilitate the examination of the intersection among gender, cultural, and ethnic studies. Published biannually, this journal seeks to invigorate discussions of the global mobilization of people, ideas, and capital, and the ways in which this circulation has influenced conceptions of gender, ethnicity/race, migration, and culture. In the very same way, the journal examines the gendered nature of cultures and cultural encounters across borders. It is committed to facilitating intersectional, interdisciplinary dialogue which results from the crossing of disciplinary boundaries.

FRAME: Journal of Literary Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 31, 2020

This next issue of FRAME, in collaboration with the OSL research group on Law, Literature and Society, will focus on the topic of “War, Literature and Law.” We invite scholars to consider the dynamics between the fields of literature and law as they intersect in making sense of, or in their impact on, the experience of war. How does literature influence how we conceptualize legality and political conflict? How do legal contentions, political conflicts, and their entanglement condition the creation of literary texts? And how are these negotiations conditioning, or conditioned by, war?

“The Ludic Outlaw: Medievalism, Games, Sport, and Play,” a special issue

updated:

The Bulletin of the International Association for Robin Hood Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 31, 2020

From the early Atari single-player arcade game Outlaw to more recent videogames such as Activision Blizzard’s multiplayer Overwatch, modern digital outlaws have long been popular characters in gaming culture. These characters often work to resist authoritarianism within their respective gaming worlds, and they frequently evoke much older outlaw representations, such as the Robin Hood of medieval ballads, by embodying popular definitions of justice and communal welfare.
