Hong Kong Studies (Chinese University Press) is now accepting articles and reviews written in English or traditional Chinese for a general issue of the journal, tentatively scheduled for publication in June 2018. Hong Kong Studies is the first bilingual academic journal to focus on Hong Kong from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Sarah Hall published her first novel, Haweswater, in 2002. Since then she has developed into one of the UK’s most protean and quietly acclaimed writers, producing poetry, short fiction and novels in a wide range of genres which are nonetheless bound together by a common style and a common set of preoccupations: wild(er)ness, female sexuality and the deep connection between language, landscape and the body.

Gender, Sexuality, and Museums, new volume

 

When it appeared in 2010, Gender, Sexuality and Museums offered scholars, practitioners, and students key articles, essays and case studies on those subjects. As the first reader to focus on LGBT issues and museums, and the first text in nearly 15 years to collect articles which focus on women and museums, it offered new and classic investigations about gender and sexuality – both practical and theoretical – many of which broke new ground and helped spur new practices and perspectives. The editors propose a second volume of essays on this topic, to appear for the tenth anniversary of Gender, Sexualities, and Museums.

Shakespeare’s Migrants and Exiles – Shakespeare Across Borders

Shakespeare Seminar 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

In Shakespeare’s works characters are frequently banished from court, from the city or their country. Some move voluntary and many make their first appearance with a history of migration. Some yearn for their home, some are glad to escape persecution. Some bemoan the loss of their identity, some embrace a new identity abroad. People are exiled for various reasons, banished from another’s present, from a place, or from memory. Exile may mean a new chance or certain death. Migrants are greeted with hope, with fear, with fierce rejection. In a more abstract sense, Shakespeare’s plays and poems themselves became migrant texts as they were performed by travelling players or otherwise transmitted across time and space.

The expansion of bilingual and multilingual education in an increasingly globalised world involves a series of intrinsic challenges to which both teachers and students respond with changes and innovations – technological, methodological or procedural – with respect to the traditional model of learning-teaching. In parallel with this, it also offers an interesting field of study to undertake research into the learning of a language in all its domains – linguistic,  social, or cultural –  not only from theoretical approaches, but also in order to uncover areas of improvement and good practice.

TWC CFP: The Future of Fandom (01/15/18; 09/15/18)

Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

This special 10th anniversary issue of Transformative Works and Cultures seeks to explore the future of fandom while looking back to its past. How might scholarship on fandom's past and present invite speculation about its future? And what might the possible futures invoked by technological, ecological, and political discourses mean for fandom's communities and practices? Science fiction in particular--the field whose strategies spawned fandom, and the genre in which much fan activity occurs--has used imagined futures to shed new light on the present and the past. In turn, studying where we are and where we have been allows us to imagine where we may be heading.

Fan studies is an interdisciplinary field, with scholars in disciplines ranging from cultural studies to law, from sociology to library science, all bringing their unique perspectives to bear on research about fans. As a result, fan studies is methodologically eclectic: approaches can include a combination of quantitative, qualitative, highly theoretical, practice-based, online, offline, archival, legal, textual, and/or community-centred methods, and this is far from an exhaustive list. This gives the field flexibility to address a huge variety of research questions while also posing challenges with regards to methodology selection and compatibility, different perspectives on rigour, as well as ethics and researcher positionality.
