SAR Special Issue on the Work of Lorraine Lopez

updated: 
Wednesday, January 16, 2019 - 9:41am
University of North Georgia
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Lorraine López is a powerful emerging voice in Latinx literature. She has published six books of fiction, including Soy la Avon Lady (winner of the inaugural Miguel Mármol prize for fiction) and Call Me Henri (awarded the Paterson Prize for Young Adult Literature), and she has edited or coedited three essay collections. Her work reflects a variety of concerns, specifically regarding the complex cultural practices of Mexican American communities; it confronts issues of identity and representation, gender, sexuality, class, race, culture, and place, among others. Yet, despite her popular success, there is very little scholarship that exists on her work.

Naomi Alderman’s rise to literary stardom following the publication of The Power in 2016has been remarkable.  Alderman had been a critically feted novelist for a decade before The Power. Her earlier work had led to an Orange Award for Young Writers in 2006 and she was named a Granta Young Novelist of the Decade in 2013. The Power, written following a year-long mentorship by Margaret Atwood, won the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction in 2017; as with Atwood’s speculative fiction, it is situated on the boundaries of genre and literary fiction.

Violence: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Project

From ancient gladiators battling to the death in front of cheering crowds to the modern-day journalistic maxim that ‘if it bleeds, it leads’, violence has occupied a prominent place in the human imagination. It is common to see animals in the wild fighting to establish dominance and eliminate potential predators. But when humans engage in similar behaviour, it raises a host of questions about the nature and implications of violence. Why has our capacity for reason, compassion and empathy been insufficient to circumvent our primal urge to use physical force to cause injury, death or other forms of harm? Why has violence exerted an irresistible hold on the human psyche throughout history?

Torture: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Project

As terrorism has seen a new rise in past decades, organizations such as ISIS, Boko Haram and similar others are thriving on the fear that is increasingly gripping the world. Their way of spreading horror and gaining the obedience of controlled populations is largely based on mass torture and killing. However, they are far from alone in this practice. Throughout history, torture has been used for a great variety of reasons, ranging from the twisted satisfaction of psychopathic criminals, to state and/or Church sanctioned means of punishing evil doers or extracting confessions; from violently resolving domestic disputes to means of protecting national security.

deadline for submissions:

Deadline Extended to 25 January 2019

The Theme

This year’s theme is an opportunity to reflect on how you have come to know your research through the varying ways it has been shared and presented.

Emerging out of the Without End 2018 symposium theme of ‘the documents in which research ideas are inspired and found’, the Without End 2019 symposium, now moves on to how we are tasked with collecting these ideas in to the propositions we can share. It is about how we, as postgraduate and early career researchers, can begin to breach discourse in numerous ways and the effects this can bring.

Most of us remember what scared us as children: the bumps in the night, the dark alleys, and the monsters, ghouls, and ghosts brimmed with the potential to terrify. The thrill of dodging the terror that waited in the shadows fuels many horror fanatics to return to the theatres, bookstands, and now podcasts to relive youthful feelings of dread. It should be no surprise, then, that youth horror media is pervasive. From Goosebumps and the upcoming release of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? and the CBBC’s Creeped Out, there is an abundance of media that introduces children to the horror genre.
