Since its reemergence in the late 1990s, The Female American; or, The Adventures of Unca Eliza Winkfield has received increasing critical and academic attention. As we approach twenty years of contemporary awareness of this novel, this call for proposals asks us to take stock of the position of this novel in conversation with historical constructions of literal/figurative space, place, home (of the period of the novel's presumed creation or the period of the novel's setting). Topics to be addressed may include (among others) ways in which this transatlantic novel fashions/responds to liminality, hybridity, borders, geo-politics, and peripheries, including comparative analyses in concert with relevant works from varied genres and disciplines.

The Media Review section of Resilience: A Journal of the Environmental Humanities calls for reviews that apply ecocritical and Green cultural studies approaches to the field of Japanese animation.

2014 was a watershed year for Studio Ghibli, arguably the leading anime studio, because it marked the retirement of the founding directors Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata. who issued their swan-songs The Wind Rises and Princess Kaguya. To honor this moment and attract more critical attention to anime, we are soliciting reviews of the following:

Miyazaki's films, especially Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Ponyo.

Abstract/shuns

What about those ideas you entertain but never fully develop? Those notions which are reviled and dismissed by peer gatekeepers? Follies so whimsical they unsettle even you?

We're looking for those submissions, the ones shunned by polite society and keepers of the status quo.

Let us be up front: Abstractshuns endeavors to become an ersatz academic journal, middlebrow at best. If Grindr/Tinder (depending on the orientation of the idea) spent a really naughty weekend with Notes and Queries, this would be the spawn, with Courtney Love and Jack Halberstam as godparents.

I am looking for 1-2 more panelists to fill out a panel proposal for the 2015 American Studies Association conference (http://www.theasa.net/submit_a_proposal). Drawing on the conference theme of "The (Re)production of Misery and the Ways of Resistance," this panel proposes to explore how performances of violence—that is, violence that is meant to be seen—can work both to reproduce social miseries and also to offer methods for resisting the political and social systems that institutionalize the conditions of misery. Possible themes may include (but are certainly not limited to):
