I am editing the collection "Doing Vegan Studies," which is under contract for publication in the “Cultural Ecologies of Food in the 21st Century” series published by the University of Nevada Press and slated for publication in 2018. I have a great set of contributors and essays, but due to a contributor being unable to complete an essay, I’ve lost a valuable contribution on veganism and race. I am hoping to solicit an essay that addresses this topic in a compelling and original way. Potential topics include – but are not limited to:
Veganism as perceived white identity category
Problematic comparisons between human slavery and the enslavement of animals
Veganism and Black Lives Matter
Veganism as postcolonial strategy

CFP: Horror Comes Home (edited collection; film and television)
Deadline: Abstracts 1/15/18; Essays 8/1/18
The horror genre in film and television is no stranger to images of home. As Carol Clover notes, most horror occurs within a “terrible place,” often a space that, in fact, represents home, transforming it from a refuge to a prison or a supernatural battleground.
How do our understandings of home shift within the horror genre when “home” might mean a coffin, a sideshow, a hotel, a tent, or transitory refuge? What happens to notions of home when it is the site of physical or psychological violence or contamination? This volume seeks to engage with the spectrum of these representations of home within the horror genre.
Following a lecture-cum-workshop in January 2017 with Birgit Kaiser and Kathrin Thiele on the topic of “Diffraction” in Erfurt, the Erfurt Research Network on New Materialism (ENNM) developed an interest in the idea of reading literary (and other) texts diffractively. Therefore, we are looking for contributions for a book proposal for the Book Series New Critical Humanities (series editors Birgit M. Kaiser, Timothy O’Leary and Kathrin Thiele), at Rowman & Littlefield International. The publication will be an edited volume of articles on the notion of “Diffractive Reading”.
