Call for Submissions
Media Fields Journal Issue 5: Memory, Space, and Media

Submission Deadline: November 15, 2011

Trends towards spatial analysis and memory studies have both emerged as vibrant and booming fields of inquiry in the humanities. In this special issue, we ask what is to be gained at the intersection of memory studies, spatial studies and media studies? What role does disciplinary specificity have to play in the conjunction of these fields? What are other ways to examine memory and space outside a paradigm of trauma?

Re-reading Rider Haggard [update]

updated: 
Tuesday, September 13, 2011 - 1:07pm
John Miller, University of Northern British Columbia

Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was a novelist, country gentleman, social commentator, onetime colonial administrator and failed ostrich farmer whose prodigious output comprises a significant but under-examined contribution to late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century literature. While his two most famous works, King Solomon's Mines (1886) and She (1887) have attracted a steady stream of articles in recent years, most notably from the fields of postcolonial and gender studies, a significant proportion of his oeuvre remains almost entirely unstudied, despite their considerable popular success in his lifetime.

Graduate Journal aspeers Calls for Papers on "American Food Cultures"

aspeers: emerging voices in american studies

A familiar proverb tells us that 'we are what we eat.' Indeed, food is not only a daily necessity to sustain the body. The need for food, its production, its preparation, and its consumption turn it into an important cultural site and a crucial analytical category. Studying 'food' accordingly brings together a number of academic fields ranging from biology and agriculture to sociology, political science, history, and literary and cultural studies, to name just a few. In their interdisciplinary openness and diverse cultural significance, food cultures are central to American studies.
