Submissions for This Bridge Called Language Anthology [Deadline March 31, 2016]

Monday, January 25, 2016 - 7:34pm
This Bridge Called Language Anthology

This Bridge Called Language is currently seeking submissions. This Bridge Called Language is an upcoming anthology of real-life stories, each inspired by an "untranslatable" word from around the world. We are seeking true-to-life, personal stories, inspired by untranslatable words that capture the essence and experience of the word more than any attempt at a direct translation could. We seek true tales that convey both the unique and the universal in the magic of real life.

This anthology will allow the power of language, storytelling and personal lived experience to be the bridge between the imagined "us" and "them," in a world that is increasingly filled instead with pieces of us all.

[UPDATE] "Race, Politics, and the Humanities in an Age of 'Posts'" Special Issue March 1, 2016

Monday, January 25, 2016 - 3:39pm
Humanities (an international, peer-reviewed, open access quarterly journal)

This Special Issue comes at a time when the defining boundaries of both "race" and "human" have been radically called into question, challenging us to rethink classificatory systems that found hierarchical relationships between, for example, the "fully human" and sub-human or non-human others. What is at stake for the humanities in this presumably post-racial, post-human age, and, in particular, how are we to re-imagine racial equality or human rights as sustainable political projects? Please send 250-word abstracts directly to the Guest Editor, Myra Mendible, at for review. Completed papers are due on or before June 1st, 2016.

UPDATE--ReFocus: A Series of Film/American Studies Anthologies

Monday, January 25, 2016 - 11:45am

In 2015, the University of Edinburgh Press launched a multivolume series of scholarly, refereed anthologies entitled ReFocus. Edited by Robert Singer (CUNY Graduate Center, Liberal Studies) and Gary D. Rhodes (Queens University, Belfast), each book focuses on a critically overlooked American film director who worked in the studio system, independent cinema, experimental filmmaking, or documentary tradition. The volumes to be published this year focus on Preston Sturges, Amy Heckerling, Delmer Daves, Ida Lupino, and Budd Boetticher.
