The Velvet Light Trap Issue 83 - Politics of Space and Place

At the outset of Space and Place: The Perspective of Experience, Yi-Fu Tuan observes, "Space and place are basic components of the lived world; we take them for granted. When we think about them, however, they may assume unexpected meanings and raise questions we have not thought to ask." Power relations are often negotiated through space and embedded in place, and these dynamics resonate through and within media. As such, media studies stands to offer an important contribution to the critical study of space and place, just as this important area of study may help us to reorient and reimagine foundational premises and concerns within our field.

Thinking the Global with Literature (journal special issue)

updated: 
Wednesday, August 23, 2017 - 9:44am
New Global Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

For this literary-focussed issue of the New Global Studies journal we invite proposals for essays on any aspect of literature’s engagement with ideas of the global, from the ways in which literature’s conceptual reach may help us to think the possibilities of the planetary, to how the global literary marketplace can act as a barometer for shifting cultural norms.

The central question that this special issue poses is: how does literature help us to conceptualize the global? Secondary to this, the issue asks how literature, literary theory, and literary movements and networks may help us to shape, observe, and define what Bruce Mazlish called the ‘emerging global civil society’.

Horror Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 6, 2017

With the current spate of contemporary high-budget properties that have sought to engage and adapt online horror content, increasing attention has been turned to communities of amateur critics, writers, illustrators, and fans that work to create horror in digital space. Their influence has been felt in a variety of media, from the television series Channel Zero and Supernatural, to the film The Tall Man and video games like Slender and SCP: Containment Breach. Fora in Something Awful, “r/nosleep”, and the SCP Foundation represent attempts by massive communities to create negotiated fictions, imagining mythic spaces and enduring, horrific creatures.

Freiburger Zeitschrift für GeschlechterStudien
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

Das Schwerpunktheft „Geschlechtliche Vielfalt im Sport“ der Freiburger Zeit-schrift für GeschlechterStudien (25/2019) richtet den Fokus auf Momente des Wandels und der Verschiebung von Geschlechterverhältnissen und Ge-schlechterkonstruktionen. Anschluss bieten Forschungen aus unterschiedli-chen disziplinären Kontexten, die der (Re-)Produktion geschlechtlicher Ord-nung in sozialen Praktiken, medialen Repräsentationen und formalen Struk-turen des Sports nachgehen. Die leitende Frage des Heftes lautet:

Welche Veränderungen der zweigeschlechtlich-hierarchischen Ordnung im Sport lassen sich benennen, und unter welchen sozialen und gesell-schaftlichen Bedingungen sind sie möglich und denkbar?

Regarding an ongoing research project at Columbia University, Barnard student Sabrina Singer reflected that when she walks around the campus, now, she wonders: “What else is history going to forget?”[1] The research Singer and her colleagues are doing looks at the historical ties between the institution now educating them and the historical institution of slavery. We were prompted to similar reflections having visited Yale’s Peabody Museum and an exhibit there of Elihu Yale’s gemstones collection. Included in the display is a painting of Yale: he is pictured with a large unfinished diamond ring symbolizing Britain’s dominance over India.
