In her 1988 book A Burst of Light, Audre Lorde said, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation and that is an act of political warfare.” The concept of self-care, which arose through the activist practices specifically of marginalized groups, has been increasingly adopted and discussed by health care settings, non-profit organizations, commercial and marketing enterprises, and psychological approaches. National discourse around self-care has increased exponentially since the 2016 presidential election. Yet, few academics have explored the theory, implementation, and impacts of this concept.

Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I'll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,

New Feminist Materialism and Queer Studies in the Anthropocene

gender forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

We would like to invite contributions exploring an intellectual meeting ground between new feminist and queer materialisms and affect theory, environmental humanities, science studies, and many more inter- and transdisciplinary fields. New/feminist materialisms and the affective turn are emerging at a time in need for alternative visions of the world threatened by human exceptionalism, ecological terror(ism), and devastating, extinction-fostering capital flows: they pose the question of how to theorize and practice ethical and decidedly posthuman or rather nonanthropocentric feminisms in the geological era of the (late capitalist) Anthropocene.

This year (2018) the Bronte Society, centres of Victorian Studies as well as Literature departments across the Anglophone world are commemorating the bicentenary of Emily Bronte's birth with several conferences and events. The three Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, were born in Yorkshire between 1816 and 1820. They all died young, with the longest survivor, Charlotte, passing away in 1855, possibly from tuberculosis (like her sisters) or typhus. However, in their short literary life, the sisters published one volume of poetry and seven novels – many of them as the Bells – which have ensured their presence and influence in the English literary sphere to this day.

Essay Collection: Joyce Writing Disability

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

Joyce Writing Disability is a proposed volume of essays on the history, theory, and depiction of disability as it relates to the life and work of James Joyce. Though disability is increasingly a popular topic in modernist studies, there is as yet no book dedicated to disability and/in Joyce. As such, Joyce Writing Disability will seek not to be the last word on the topic, but the first. We seek essays on a variety of topics and intersections, and are especially interested in readings that open novel and unexplored avenues for disability studies and Joyce criticism. Two major university presses have expressed an interest in the volume, and we are looking for contributions from scholars both established and new.

CFP: "Archives and Popular Culture," A Special Issue of the Journal of Popular Culture

updated: 
Monday, November 12, 2018 - 4:20pm
The Journal of Popular Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

This special issue explores the intricate relationship between archives and popular culture: how archives shape our understanding of “popular culture,” and how diverse forms of popular culture shape conceptions and contents of archives. Conventional conceptualizations of the archive as the repository of authoritative historical documents, assembled and maintained by institutions of the state, have increasingly been challenged. Formation of repositories, in public and private, of materials created by individuals who lack epistemic authority has been of interest not only to historians looking for traces of their lives.

QED:
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019

QED: A Journal in GLBTQ Worldmaking (published 3 times/yr.) brings together scholars, activists, public intellectuals, artists, and policy and culture makers to discuss and mobilize issues and initiatives that matter to the diverse lived experience, struggle, and transformation of LGBTQ peoples and communities wherever they may be. With an emphasis on worldmaking praxis, QED welcomes theory, criticism, history, policy analysis, public argument, and creative exhibition, seeking to foster intellectual and activist work through essays, commentaries, interviews, roundtable discussions, and book and event reviews. Our use of the term “worldmaking” is much more deliberate in its derivation.

Hidden Gems from Fleet Street: New Perspectives on Non-Canonical and Popular Eighteenth-Century Literature

South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 29, 2018

Beginning with the pamphlet wars during the Restoration and ending with authors serving as critics to one anothers’ writings in the Romantic period, the eighteenth century was rife was debates about how to define and identify good literature. Authors such as John Dryden, Alexander Pope, Thomas Gray, William Wordsworth, and many others served as adjudicators of good literature by chastising others’ work in their prefaces, poetry, pamphlets, and mock epics. Theater history and book history however, tells us that some of the works of these dunces were widely popular and important in their own right—regardless of how derided they were by their peers.
