"Intoxication" - CFP

Thursday, September 18, 2014 - 11:01am
Ingrid Walker, University of Washington, Tacoma

Submissions invited to a special issue of NANO on "Intoxication."

This issue of New American Notes Online seeks to move critical attention beyond one-dimensional discourses that frame intoxication in terms of criminality, disease, or excessive indulgence. We hope to inspire a multi- and interdisciplinary conversation about the possibilities and realities of intoxication that have been less explored in academic and public discourse. Further, we invite contributions that uncouple intoxication from what has been an almost-essentialist relationship with addiction. In particular, we seek contributions that examine or theorize intoxication from new or unusual perspectives.

Posthuman Gothic (Published Collection) - Call for Chapters

Anya Heise-von der Lippe (University of Tübingen, Germany)

The posthuman intersects with the Gothic in a number of interesting ways, which involve both narrative and critical discourses. On the one hand, Gothic aesthetics are frequently employed in expressing cultural fears of techno-scientific progress and its posthuman creations, as contemporary popular culture is teeming with posthuman literary and cinematic monsters and swamped by panicmongering media stories of out-of-control artificial intelligence and zombifying pandemics. On the other hand, Gothic criticism - often concerned with the exploration of liminal or abject, monstrous others, and how they challenge the human's sense of being and identity - offers useful approaches to critically frame these cultural fears and issues.
