CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Sabrina: I want freedom and power.

Prudence: He will never give you that. The Dark Lord. The thought of you, of any of us, having both terrifies him.

Sabrina: Why is that?

Prudence: He is a man, isn’t he?

Although dramatic programs on witches have been on television since the sixties, 2018 saw an unprecedented preoccupation with them. In addition to ongoing supernatural series, there are at least seven new witch-themed shows which started this year: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Charmed, Legacies, A Discovery of Witches, Light as a Feather, Disenchantment, and Britannia.

Call for Papers

Keynote Speakers: Professor Andrew Bennett (University of Bristol)

Professor Nicholas Royle (University of Sussex)

 The Elizabeth Bowen Society is delighted to announce its second international conference.

Anne Schwan and Tara Thomson / Edinburgh Napier University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 25, 2019

This collection seeks to bring together some of the most recent international scholarship and developments in the interdisciplinary fields of digital and public humanities. Alongside a critical exploration of the production, distribution and scholarship of culture in relation to digital media and technologies, the collection will examine the possibilities and challenges of publicly engaged scholarship in the digital humanities and beyond. Working with a broad definition of ‘public humanities’, we wish to interrogate the multifaceted interface of arts and humanities scholarship and engagement with wider ‘publics’ beyond academia, from literary and cultural heritage to creative arts and performance.

Divisions/Revisions of Labor: Tufts University Women's Center Symposium on Gender and Culture

updated: 
Monday, December 3, 2018 - 12:28pm
Tufts University Women's Center
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 7, 2019

What counts as labor, and who gets to decide? For the 8th Annual Tufts University Women’s Center Symposium on Gender and Culture, we will explore how questions of identity shape our ideas about labor. What kinds of work are men, women, and trans or nonbinary people expected to perform, and for whom? How do various identities and positionalities—like gender, race, class, and sexuality—inform the work we do? And what does it mean to resist gendered, raced, classed, or otherwise invisible labor? How can we reshape our understanding of what is work and what work matters?

Special Volume of Frontiers, A Women Studies Journal 41.3 (Feb. 2021): “Staging Feminist Futures”

Special Volume Editor: Kimberly Jew, University of Utah 

Space, energy, temporal fluidity, moving bodies, present voices and affect, witnesses, narrative. The theatrical stage offers a moving, three-dimensional world in which to explore imagined embodiments and emotions, and to momentarily restructure the boundaries of identity, reality and nation. As Jill Dolan argues in her seminal book, Utopian Performance, live performance offers a special power to staged visions of utopian futures through the visceral, action-ready sentiment generated among audience members.

Chiasma: A Site for Thought is pleased to invite submissions for its sixth issue, on the theory and philosophy of “disenchantment”. While the contemporary world roils from accelerated inequality across diverse sectors of the global population; technological advancement and complexification; proliferating ‘connectedness’; network, information, and media sinkholes within which the distinction between fact and value is increasingly void—and all this in the midst of great political absurdity—disenchantment, in all its Janus-faced nuance, is again critical to be thought today.
