The Review of Disability Studies: An International Journal is issuing a Call for Papers for a special forum on the subject of shame and disability, broadly conceived. It is hoped that through critical discourse addressing the historical and current contexts, contributing factors, effects, and responses to shame, greater understanding of this phenomena will diminish discrimination and violence.

The Indian River Review

Saturday, March 31, 2018

The Indian River Review is currently soliciting submissions for its sixth issue scheduled for publication in late spring 2019. The theme for this issue is “passion.” Of course, this word immediately proposes romantic passion, and while the editors are not against submissions that go in that direction, submitters should be careful. Think Wuthering Heights or even When Harry Met Sally, not Fifty Shades of Grey, specifically no erotica.

Feminism and Food Media

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 5, 2018

Food media have become exponentially popular throughout the 21st century, with growth in the production and consumption of digital ‘food porn,’ cookbooks and content in the food blog- and vlogospheres. Across these diverse formats, food media have long been recognized as artifacts that reference culturally- and historically-specific ideals of gender at the same time that they offer instructional food pedagogies. For instance, scholars have pointed out the links between food preparation rituals and the performance of gender from the hypermasculinization of barbeque to the feminized daintiness of baking desserts, and from ideas about the gendered organization of food labor to the embodied pleasures of food porn.

Sweet Home Chicago? Rethinking Blues Literature

 

MLA 2019

Chicago, IL   3 January – 6 January 2019

 

What is the current state of Blues Literature? It has been well over thirty years since Houston Baker Jr.’s Blues, Ideology, and Afro-American Literature: A Vernacular Theory (1984) put blues back on the critical map. Much has changed since then. Even with innovative interventions in the field (Davis, Bolden, Gussow, McGinley), blues literature has fallen out of vogue within academic circles. This panel seeks to rethink blues literature's critical value.

REMINDER: Child and Youth Agency in Science Fiction & Fantasy

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018

We are seeking chapter submissions for an edited volume that interrogates representations of children and youth’s agency in science fiction and fantasy.  Our collection will explore child and youth agency in the context of “beyond the known.”  Often, children’s agency is viewed as imaginary, given the heightened structures foisted upon them by adults/parents, peers/friends, and institutions/organizations in the real world.  Insomuch as science fiction and fantasy represent liminal spaces with unbounded potential, our book may unearth that child and youth agency is accepted as more real in the unreal, more possible in the impossible.

Brand placement in film and TV series

University Paris 8
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

The research program MEDIA (TransCrit, EA 1569) is organizing a one-day workshop on brand placement in film and TV series. The workshop will be held at the University of Paris 8 on Friday 15 June 2018.

Neither an artistic choice nor a coincidence, brand placement started to be used as soon as the movie industry was created but in a moderate way. Due to the rising costs of film production, this financial partnership has progressively become unavoidable to such an extent that a certain number of Hollywood movies and series could not be produced without it. The same applies, perhaps even to a larger degree, to TV shows, even though their production mode sometimes places them side-by-side with regular TV commercials.
