Guest Editor: Maurizio Ascari (University of Bologna)

Throughout its long history, crime writing has inspired and been inspired by other genres such as the gothic, sensation fiction, horror, romance, film noir, science fiction, and true crime. This theme issue of Clues, guest edited by Maurizio Ascari, seeks to explore the richness of these generic contact zones and the acts of cross-pollination they engendered, ultimately contributing to the overall development of this galaxy of literary forms. Articles for this issue might address questions such as the following:

Interrogating Men: Toxic Masculinity in the Contemporary Moment

“Toxic masculinity” is a relatively new buzz phrase to capture, in the contemporary moment, problematics of male behavior and masculinist beliefs. However, the term needs interrogating if we are to fully understand its implications. What exactly is toxic masculinity? What agenda(s) does the term serve? What makes it toxic, and to whom is it toxic? Indeed, is toxic masculinity itself really a thing, or is it simply a new slogan for behaviours and beliefs that have always been a part of (too) many expressions of masculinity? What is the significance of this phrase to the study of masculinity?

Evil Women: Women and Evil, 2nd Global Conference

Friday, May 31, 2019

The second meeting of the global inclusive interdisciplinary Evil Women: Women and Evil project will explore and examine all aspects of the conjunctions between women, the feminine and evil with a view to forming a selective publication to engender further collaboration, research and discussion.  On the one hand we will scrutinise what happens when women themselves behave in ways that are considered evil – when they rob, murder, manipulate, groom, abuse, beguile, embezzle. Women are not expected to behave in aberrant or illegal ways and we will consider the structural and systemic reasons for the heightened interest, repulsion, condemnation – and even hatred – that feminine transgression generates.

Diasporsas: 3rd Global Conference

The dispersion of communities of people physically displaced from their perceived ‘homeland’ to other parts of the globe has been a defining feature of the human experience. Commonly referred to as diasporas, these groups have travelled to other lands for reasons including to escape persecution, to seek a better life and to exploit economic opportunities. As a critical framework, diaspora directs our attention to the impact of relocation/dislocation on the lives and identities of affected individuals, the homelands they leave and the new places where they make their homes.

University College London's Department of English is pleased to announce its annual graduate conference 'SYNAESTHESIA', to be held on Friday 14th June 2019. We welcome proposals from Masters students, PhD students and recent graduates working in all literary periods on the theme of synaesthesia.

What kinds of unorthodox sensory experience can texts yield? How does written and oral language render or disturb the categories of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch?

Queering Neo-Victorianism Beyond Sarah Waters

updated: 
Wednesday, April 10, 2019 - 10:39am
Special Issue of Neo-Victorian Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019

Since the lesbian publishing sensation of the first of Sarah Waters’s trio of neo-Victorian novels, Tipping the Velvet (1998), nineteenth-century queerness has become an increasingly prominent trope across neo-Victorian media and criticism. On the one hand, neo-Victorian queerness functions as a means of recovering marginalised viewpoints and obscured histories, predominantly, though not exclusively, from the LGBTQI+ community. On the other hand, it serves as a strategic tool to negotiate both alliances and tensions between lesbianism and feminism, queer studies and gender theory, or gender-specific and queer-generic positionalities.

deadline for submissions:

I have been approached by Routledge Press to edit a Handbook on Vegan Studies for the press’s Environment and Sustainability division. Handbooks are typically 30-35 chapters, with each chapter being roughly 6000 words. They aim to provide a cutting edge, comprehensive assessment of the field and will be an essential reference title and benchmark publication for the subject. 

 

I am seeking proposals for chapters for the handbook that reflect knowledge of the field and that build on extant work in the discipline. Such proposals might include but are not limited to 

 

Vegan Studies . . . 

 

History

Key figures 

Relationship to animal studies

And critical race studies
