Throughout the twentieth century literary studies that focused on world literature were defined and challenged by anti-colonial and postcolonial thought. Postcolonial theory focused on a critique of modernity and especially a critique of western empires. This panel seeks to shift the focus of the study of empire and invites papers that consider representations of the Islamic Empire. We invite papers that analyze literature, film, and other media that engage with Islam as a religion and culture. We ask the following questions, among others: To what extent has Islam affected western immigration policies?

Cities and Their Representations At the Turn of the Century

ACLA: American Comparative Literature Organization/ Washington DC

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Who does the city represent? What does a city represent? What does it mean to represent and how does this come together in representations of cities at the turn of the nineteenth to twentieth centuries, a moment associated with the height of modernity, or at least the height of excitement about the project of modernization? The relationship between cities and modernity is often taken for granted. For example, many scholars associate cities with civilization, particularly as sites for the advancement of civilization. Yet, wholesale urban planning performed from the top down is often enacted in decidedly uncivil ways, calling into question which populations are represented in and by the city, or who is the proper citizen?

Special Issue (2019) of The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies ('Lewis and the Post-War, 1919-1921')

In his autobiography Blasting and Bombardiering (1937), Lewis memorably assessed the world in which he found himself on returning from the western front: 'We were all in the post-war, but that period produced nothing but a lot of sub-Sitwells and sheep in Woolfe’s clothing, and we were not of it. I call us here "the Men of 1914".' The Journal of Wyndham Lewis Studies seeks 7- to 10,000-word essays that engage with Lewis’s post-war writing, activities, and social networks. We are particularly interested in essays that:

Special Issue of The Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics

Guest Editors: Ames Hawkins and Maria Novotny

This special issue explores the practice of curation as a multimodal form of creative-critical scholarship. Creative-critical scholarship often employs creative practice as methods and methodologies (Anderson, 2014). It does so in order to not only articulate, but to demonstrate and make material, the relevance of arts practice as scholarly inquiry (Wysocki, 2004). We see  creative-critical scholarship as an artistic scholarly method facilitating action and engagement in critical social issues. We intend, then, for this special issue to call further attention to creative-critical scholarship as a multimodal rhetorical practice.

We are seeking completed submissions for an edited volume that interrogates representations of child and youth agency in fantasy.  Our collection Walking in Other Worlds: Fantastical Journeys of Children’s Agency explores child and youth agency in the context of fantasy popular cultural forms.  These sources of analyses may include television, cartoons, films, novels, toys, comic books/graphic novels, advertising, storytelling/folklore, fashion, art, video games, etc.  An academic publisher is connected to this project.
