Edited Collection: "I am not what I once was": Unbecoming Queer Narratives

Monday, October 13, 2014 - 7:27pm
Dr. Paul Walker, Dr. Josh Adair

This essay collection will focus upon the intersection of personal narrative and conceptions of self constructed through the lens of queer theory. In order for us to wriggle free of the shackles forged by the modern construct of the individual imbued with an infallible facility for self-sovereignty and an impervious, fixed identity, we must first acknowledge the fluidity, illogicality, and unpredictability which characterize most of our lived experiences.

Panel CFP: An Itty Bitty on the Titty: Breasts in Popular, Textual, Visual, and Medical Cultures - 30 May-2 June 2015

updated: 
Monday, October 13, 2014 - 4:19pm
Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English (ACCUTE)

From the monomastic Amazon women of medieval and early modern culture to Dolly Parton's hope that people "look underneath the breasts at the heart," from the Madonna Lactans of Catholic iconography to representations of the cancerous breast, this panel examines breasts in all their shapes and sizes. The breast, so often considered to be indexical of femininity, provides a physical space through which more abstract values can be explained. Indeed, the breast confirms for us what sexual difference should look like, and how it should operate. This panel discusses the ways in which the breast both conforms to and disrupts expectations for gendered identity (or other socially constructed markers), and proposals that cover any historical period are welcome.

Maps and Mapping in Children's Literature

Hazel Sheeky Bird

Literature for children and young adults is a rich source of material for the study of literary maps, one that has been largely overlooked, despite the growth in academic interest in this area of study. We are therefore seeking contributions for a proposed collection on maps in children's literature that will bring together the best current thinking on the topic, which will become a resource for scholars, and provide a springboard for further study in this area, particularly in terms of interdisciplinary and international discourses.

[UPDATE] Transnational Clash (edited collection) DEADLINE 10/31/14

Samuel Cohen

The Transnational Clash: Essays on "the Only Band that Matters" will be a cross-disciplinary collection of scholarly essays dedicated to the work of The Clash, and as such the first of its kind. It will bring together research by literary critics, sociologists, popular music specialists, musicologists, historians and cultural and area studies specialists in order to explore the transnational aspects of the band's music, lyrics and global cultural impact. The recent conference in Belfast – A Riot of Our Own: a Symposium on The Clash – strongly suggests a high level of contemporary academic interest in the band's work.
