Gender is achieved through performances and interpretations associated to normative judgments of masculinity and femininity. Gendered imaginations and power relations are inscribed into space as structures and reproduced through spatial interaction, but gender is only one among numerous symbiotic categories of social differentiation and inequality such as ethnicity, class, sexuality, religion, etc. Different spaces present more or less great latitudes for reinterpretation, determination and conflict of all kinds of identity categories that can be interrelated or played out against each other.

deadline for submissions:

Papers invited for the joint (guaranteed) South Asian Literary Association-MLA panel exploring the incorporation of South Asian visual and literary traditions in the subcontinent’s comics. Inspired by the MLA 2019 theme of “textual transactions,” this panel explores the constitutive relations among South Asian graphic narratives and the region’s local, folk and national visual as well as literary cultures. This panel is interested in teasing out what makes South Asian graphic narratives' image-text interactions distinct from that of Western comics. What visual frames of reference do they rely on? How are image and text mutually constitutive in Indian graphic narratives?

“Digital Spatiality”

A special issue of Asiascape: Digital Asia

 

Guest Editors:

Digital technologies, namely the “internet,” have catalyzed a dramatic shift in the production of space and how we conceive it. They are ambiguous at their borders, at once expanding yet shrinking notions of home and homeland, of the local and the global, and of the intangible and the material. Such fuzziness and shifting boundaries generate new spatial relations on multiple layers which we call “digital spatialities.”

Speculative Fiction Association / Lisa Bro
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 20, 2018

Speculative fiction covers a broad range of narrative styles and genres.  The cohesive element that pulls works together under the category is that there is some “unrealistic” element, whether it’s magical, supernatural, or a futuristic/technological development: works that fall into the category stray from conventional realism in some way.   For this reason, speculative fiction can be quite broad, including everything from fantasy and magical realism to horror and science fiction—from Gabriel García Márquez to China Miéville to Octavia Butler.  This panel aims to explore those unrealistic elements and all their varied implications about society, politics, economics, and more.  Please submit a 250-300 word abstract, a brief bio, and any A/V needs by May 2

CFP: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism

Of the 605 proposals received by Bloomsbury for their 2015 33 1/3 Series call for papers, only 18% of contributors and 11% of artists covered were women, even though the female series editor was aggressively soliciting contributions by and about women. Rock and Romanticism: Women in Rock / Women in Romanticism seeks to address a visible shortcoming in scholarship about women in both popular music and in English Romanticism by bringing the two together in this collection.

Major civilizations of the world – Indian and Greek – based their models of education on inter-relatedness of various disciplines. However, with the focus on specialization and technology, liberal arts suffered at the expense of science and technology. But recently the discipline of Liberal arts and Human sciences has attained an unprecedented popularity in various Universities all over the world. The present world of the 21st century is strongly underpinned by rapid developments in the field of science and technology and accompanied by the ever-spreading roots of a global economy. The question then arises as to what role liberal education can play in the world mired in technological innovations spawned by globalization.
