CFP: Interstitial Journal (Politics in the Age of Trump and Brexit)

Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 2:35pm
Interstitial Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

In the modern era and accelerating in the age of Trump and Brexit, interstitiality, or the space between one boundary and the next, has become an urgent area of investigation. Existing within and between entities, interstices challenge conventional understandings of boundedness, inviting us to rethink the space between objects and ideas as an erupting site of transformation. From this view, rigid divisions can no longer be taken for granted, whether political (as in the case of national borders) or scholarly (such as the emphasis on discrete academic disciplines).

Conflicts over (mis)representations of historical events have long been a concern of scholars in multiple disciplines. However, the recent shift in the U.S. political climate—most notably, the shift from the Obama to the Trump administration—warrants fresh approaches to the ways in which historical preservation is practiced. To this end, we seek proposals for essays to be included in an edited volume exploring the manner in which U.S. history is preserved, sanitized, or contested through monuments, memorial sites, museums, and print or audio-visual texts.

In 1995, Star Trek: Voyager launched in a way very different from its predecessor series.  Voyager took place thousands of light years from the Federation, and it contained a multi-ethnic crew with a female captain.  Voyager, in a sense, encapsulated the American zeitgeist of the 1990s when major demographic changes were transforming the population of America, and the post-Cold War era left us wondering what strategic alliances would mean moving forward. The series challenged the nature of the American mindset at the time.

Self-Culture-Writing: Autoethnography for/as Writing Studies

EDITORS REBECCA JACKSON & JACKIE GRUTSCH MCKINNEY

 

Literally translated as “self-culture-writing,” autoethnography—as both process and product—

holds great promise for scholars and researchers in Writing Studies who endeavor to describe,

understand, analyze, and critique the ways in which selves, cultures, writing, and representation

intersect. Indeed, interest in autoethnography is growing among Writing Studies folks who see

clear connections to well-known disciplinary conversations about personal narrative (Brandt, et
