Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid: Representing Taboo in Contemporary Pop Culture

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 1, 2020

We are pleased to invite contributions to an edited volume that analyzes sexual taboo in contemporary popular culture, with an eye toward theorizing taboo sexual practices using frameworks that reveal the uncomfortable or silenced spaces that surround non-normative sexual desire. We seek chapters that focus on how different cultural products normalize the taboo, bringing deviant behavior into mainstream spaces that challenge the traditional relegation of non-normative behavior to fringe spaces. We invite readings of literary, film, interactive and fan-created works that reveal positive representations of taboo, opening our readers to a sympathetic experience of deviancy and socially proscribed behavior.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 1, 2020

Lateral, the journal of the Cultural Studies Association, seeks submissions for a unique collection of essays: Years in Cultural Studies.

What forgotten historical moments or contexts shaped the trajectory of cultural studies? How have individual scholars and broader social movements contributed to the cultural studies we know today? The special section ofLateral—“Years in Cultural Studies”—seeks to answer these questions and more through essays that interrogate cultural studies’ diverse, fragmented, and provocative history. Essays in this collection focus on specific years in the history of Cultural Studies.

New Ways of Thinking About Modernism and the Left

 

Scholars have explored modernism’s relationship both with the political right, broadly construed (fascism, nationalism, etc.) and the political left (feminism, pacifism, and Marxism in its time, how it anticipates disability studies in our time, etc.). In the spirit of MSA 2020’s stream topics on crip modernisms, activism, and environmentalism, this panel explores new paths for scholarship on modernism and the left.
