How to write of that which escapes linguistic capture? How to form into words and images precisely what slips the shackles of representational thought?

I am seeking contributors from across the disciplines for a proposed collection of essays on the Federal Writers’ Project (FWP). As the first multidisciplinary retrospective of the FWP, Rewriting America: The Federal Writers’ Project and its Ongoing Impact on American Culture will address two important questions: What impact did the FWP have on American culture AND how can this Depression-era program guide us in the future?

This proposed collection is currently under review by a university press.

Recently there has been a surge in art of dissent as creators and performers respond to the uptick of injustice, inequality, and authoritarianism around the world. In the wake of the Gezi Taksim protests, public performance and graffiti art exploded throughout Instanbul; Syrian artists have been documenting their pain and satirizing Assad’s brutal regime through digital art, posters, and graffiti since 2011; in Russia, Pussy Riot staged unsanctioned guerrilla concerts against the authoritarian practices of the Vladimir Putin; in China, Ai Weiwei and Jacob Applebaum stuffed panda bears with shredded NSA documents and embedded micro chips containing sensitive information, distributing some to institutions where they could be safely guarded as art objects.

[UPDATE] Ontologies: Special issue of The Comparatist

updated: 
Wednesday, March 27, 2019 - 2:36pm
The Comparatist
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

We welcome contributions that examine the turn to ontology in the humanities and the social sciences. What does the shift to ontology signify? What is it purporting to correct or overcome? What is its relation to prior turns (such as the linguistic turn and the cultural turn)? Is the turn to ontology an attempt to liberate continental philosophy from its infatuation with language and power, from its obsession with mediation, relationality, and subjectivity? What are the politics of this turn to ontology? Is it more receptive to non-European thought and to the nonhuman? What kind of philosophy or literary theory emerges when ontology is taken as the starting point?  

Topics of interest could include:
