CFP: MOB/RIOT CULTURE & PUBLIC PROTEST IN THE 21st CENT.

New technologies, new ways of communication, and, in some cases, new approaches to old problems and debates have emerged with the new millennium. With these changes, old tensions resurface and new conflicts arise. The past decade, and more recently in these past months, we have witnessed how these tensions create a variety of public protests and riots. This proposed collection aims to examine these acts: how and why they were initiated; how they have impacted their respective local, national, or even global communities; and how individual citizens, various groups and organizations, and even governments have responded to these acts.

[b]Further Studies in Jewish Comics[/b]

The scholarship surrounding comics and graphic novels has proliferated over the past several years, as has studies focusing on particular comics themes or visual texts created by certain ethnic communities. In light of these convergent fields of inquiry, I am pulling together a diverse edited collection of essays devoted to comics and Jewishness. The scope of this book will take in the theoretical, literary, and socio-historical contexts of comics and its links to Jewish identity, history, and discourse. This will be an expansion of the "Jewish Comics" special issue of [i]Shofar[/i] that was published in Winter 2011 (vol. 29, no. 2).
