Note: Date on this CFP as required, but this is an ongoing CFP for the new middle-state publication NYMG. 

Not Your Mama’s Gamer (nymgamer.com) is pleased to announce an impending shift to a peer-reviewed journal.

In advance of that shift, we would like to present the following call for papers for the journal. We will publish two peer-reviewed articles per month, and include textual engagement, criticism, theory, and research, as well as multimedia presentations. We will also consider critical book and game reviews. Our full CFP follows.

“Reading World War I Literature 100 Years After” - Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses - Special Issue (2018), No. 31

Editors: Nick Milne (University of Ottawa) & Sara Prieto (University of Alicante)

A hundred years after the Armistice of World War I, further review of the literature focused on and emanating from the conflict is needed. This special issue of Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses (http://raei.ua.es) seeks to approach WWI from a multidisciplinary perspective, beyond the traditional canonical voices associated with the literature of the Great War.

Historical Dialogue

Kritika Kultura
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2017

Historical dialogue is a growing field of scholarship and practice that engages with the legacy of historical violence and its ties to contemporary politics. It is informed by the recognition that many contemporary conflicts germinate from the memory of past violence, and it is particularly pertinent for the field of conflict transformation and prevention in conflict and post-conflict societies. By its very nature, then, historical dialogue is multidisciplinary, taking place within academic disciplines as well as (but not exclusively) with law, journalism, education, film, art, and literature.

Korean Dramatic Tradition and Contemporary Practices

Kritika Kultura
deadline for submissions:

Modern English Drama Association of Korea (MEDAK) invites contributions for a planned collaboration with Kritika Kultura on the Korean dramatic tradition.

As an Asian country, Korea has an Asian identity. It shares much of its historical experiences and cultural background with other Asian nations. However, it is reasonable to say that Korea has more deep-rooted relationships with China and Japan—all together referred to as “East Asia”—than with South-East Asian countries. It is because Korea was historically an isolated kingdom, probably almost never having gone beyond the neighborhood of North-East Asian region. Nevertheless, with globalization, in many ways, Korea has opened itself to the world.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2017

Editors: Kimberly McKee, Grand Valley State University
Adrienne Winans, Utah Valley University

We are soliciting submissions for a special issue in Feminist Teacher focusing on pedagogies employed by women of color while in graduate school. Often, we do not critically engage with the formative processes and experiences that shape our future teaching praxis. This issue focuses on how we learn from our successes and failures in the classroom including women of color’s creation of supportive mentoring and peer networks. We envision these essays serving as touchstone in the ongoing conversations on how women of color survive and thrive in the academy.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

The latest research indicates that more than 400 million people embark annually on traditional pilgrimages in Saudi Arabia, India, Japan, and elsewhere, with the numbers steadily increasing. Pilgrimage is one of the most ancient practices of humankind and is associated with a great variety of religious and spiritual traditions, beliefs and sacred geographies. These include the small-scale ‘walkabout’ of Outback Australian Aborigines in search of their own and their country’s spiritual renewal, the Sufi journey to the Mausoleum of Sidi Shaykh in the Algerian West Sahara, or to Lourdes in France, which welcomes over five million Catholic pilgrims each year in search of healing or deliverance.

Renaissance Border Crossings: Documented and Undocumented
Portland, Oregon, October 19-22, 2017
 
In an era of rising nationalism manifested in contentious plans to ban immigration and erect walls, it is fitting that the Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society, which spans a region encompassing two countries and is devoted to a historical period of always-contested boundaries, should devote a conference to the theme of border crossings.
