What does it mean to be working class? How do languages spoken, values held, and cultural representations vary given one’s class position? Though 62% of the country is working class (Zweig), the answers to these questions are left largely unclear and unspoken. Among others, these questions will be addressed via reflection and exploration from individuals from the working class, or who many call “working-class academics.”

CFP // Games and Literary Theory Collection -- EXTENDED SUBMISSION

We are soliciting proposals for a collection of essays at the intersection of game studies and literary theory.

This coming year will mark the fourth meeting of the International Conference Series on Games and Literary Theory at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. Having hosted the previous two meetings, we have witnessed a rich diversity of scholarship claiming this interdisciplinary field. Yet, we have also noted in the breadth of approaches a lack of a shared disciplinary history or critical archive.

updated:

Margaret Atwood Society
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2016

Margaret Atwood Studies invites submissions of articles that focus on ageism and aging in Atwood’s works or in the works of both Atwood and other authors, such as Doris Lessing, another prolific and influential woman writer who examines these themes. This special issue aims to explore the ways these writers present the passing of time in relation to life experiences and self-consciousness. Articles might discuss the works’ depictions of what it means to come of age, how age and the aging process change how we see ourselves, when and how one becomes old, ways that gender affects the aging process, and how age discrimination shapes societies and individuals.Submissions due 1 September 2016.

'Lucid reason noting its limits': The Past, Present and Future of the Absurd

DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 30TH

For a time, the Absurd was one of the chief literary movements of the day. When Martin Esslin published The Theatre of the Absurd (1960)he would frame various emerging playwrights such as Ionesco, Beckett and Pinter under one label. Though they would reject the term, the notion of the Absurd stuck and would invite a flurry of criticism from the academic world. Interest in the Absurd, however, was like a match, burning with intensity before fizzling out just as suddenly. Why was this the case? Did new trends push the Absurd to the side? Were all of its possible avenues explored? Was the Absurd limited to its temporal context? Or perhaps it evolved into novel concepts such as post-humanism?
