At a time when discourses of globalization, world literature, and planetarity are promoted as "transcending" the local, what happens to those spaces that attempt to resist the purview of such globalizing impulses? For this issue, the editors invite papers that interrogate literary, political, and cultural representations of "local" spaces and communities, as well as other zones of underdevelopment more broadly. We are especially interested in essays that focus on local, regional, and provincial cultures of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries that are shaped by, but elided from, the perspective of the national and transnational.
We invite paper proposals that consider how recalling, reinventing or referencing the nation is challenging the contemporary discursive parameters of the global.
Nation/Boundaries/Place: Reappraising the Global Sphere
In the 1980s and 1990s, the swift decline of the national space as the basis for research in the humanities and the social sciences cleared the way for theories of globalization and globality, and for the subordination of the national.
Call for participation: Queer Circuits in Archival Times: Experimentation and Critique of Networked Data
I am proposing a panel that centers on the material realities of the flows, negotiations, and exchanges between the "public" space of political economies/markets and the "private" space of domestic economies/ecologies. Broadly, this panel is focused on the impacts of the exchanges between the two spaces, how they bleed into each other, and ultimately to, in the words of the conference theme, to make "a claim on the way where we are shapes and shakes up the grounding and grounded-ness of the work we imagine, make, perceive, and do."
Subject area, time period, and media are open. My own work focuses on women's domestic nonfiction and homemaking magazines from the early Cold War period.

William Castle will probably forever be remembered first as "The Master of Gimmicks" and "The Abominable Showman": the director of exciting gimmick films like Macabre (1958), House on Haunted Hill (1959), The Tingler (1959), 13 Ghosts (1960), Homicidal (1961) and Mr. Sardonicus (1961), and the maestro behind the Emergo, Percepto and Illusion-O, the punishment poll and the life insurance policy against death by fright. But there was much more to his Hollywood career than this cycle, however innovative and indelible it may have been. He directed more than fifty films between 1944 and 1974, and produced both The Lady from Shanghai (1947) and Rosemary's Baby (1968).
