Adaptation (Oxford Journals)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2019

Adaptation, like nostalgia, is inextricably linked to the past. Both must grapple with the politics, pragmatics, and poetics of bringing the past into the present; and, in so doing, adaptation and nostalgia must also wrestle with one another.

DECADENCE [Call for Papers/Reviews]

Saturday, December 8, 2018 - 10:55am
University College London, Dept of English [Moveable Type, Vol. 11 (Summer 2019)]
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 1, 2019

Montesquieu's assertion that the fall of the Roman Empire could be attributed to a decline in morality and deviation from Classical ideals redefined the term “décadence.” From a neutral term for “decline,” decadence transformed into a laden pejorative signifying perversity and decay, as well as a warning against the dangers of excess and the pursuit of pleasure. Perceived as a disruptive force, dangerous to social order and bourgeois normativity, the threat of decadence is still invoked in modern political rhetoric to stoke anxieties over shifts in traditional values and social mores, as well as the looming threat of an irretrievable loss of geopolitical power.
