During the 2017-2018 academic year, William & Mary commemorates 50 years of African Americans in Residence. As a result, The Lemon Project: A Journey of Reconciliation and the 50-Year Commemoration of African Americans in Residence Committee are teaming up for “Desegregating Higher Education in Virginia: William and Mary in Historical Context.” As the first three women to live on campus at William & Mary were moving in, other colleges and universities in Virginia and elsewhere were experiencing similar change. What were their stories? What was their process? How did they keep moving forward?

TWC Special Issue CFP: Fan Fiction and Ancient Scribal Cultures (6/1/18; 12/15/19)

This special issue of TWC explores the potential of fan fiction as an interpretative model to study ancient religious texts.

Fan fiction writers are readers of texts who become writers of their own texts. Fans engage with the universe created by the makers of a specific series, film, or book, to which they refer as “canonical” material. For example, they create new storylines, “repair” plots they do not agree with (fix-it fic), write prequels or sequels, and fill in scenes that are missing.

‘Living Cities: Tropical Imaginaries’ reminds us that urban environments are both created and creative spaces. This Call for Papers is concerned with the peopled and lived experiences of cities and how these interact with built, natural and cultural environments. The CFP is interested in processes of tropical space and place-making, with an emphasis on key areas that make up lived cities in the tropics: creative economies, cultural and natural landscapes, aesthetics, urban myths and story making, sustainable practices, heritage, everyday life, community practices and liminal spaces.

J. G. Ballard’s fictional worlds are alive with making, remaking, repurposing and reinvigorating: ‘survival kits’ composed of unlike objects; the rekindling of creativity amongst the beach-fatigued denizens of Vermilion Sands; the surrealist constructs of ‘The Unlimited City’; the wound mappings and death scenarios of Crash; the consumerist totems and shrines of The Unlimited Dream Company, and more.
