Essay Collection: Joyce Writing Disability

Joyce Writing Disability is a proposed volume of essays on the history, theory, and depiction of disability as it relates to the life and work of James Joyce. Though disability is increasingly a popular topic in modernist studies, there is as yet no book dedicated to disability and/in Joyce. As such, Joyce Writing Disability will seek not to be the last word on the topic, but the first. We seek essays on a variety of topics and intersections, and are especially interested in readings that open novel and unexplored avenues for disability studies and Joyce criticism. Two major university presses have expressed an interest in the volume, and we are looking for contributions from scholars both established and new.

It matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what ties tie ties. It matters what stories make worlds, what worlds make stories. (Donna Haraway, Staying with the Trouble)

Soapbox: Journal for Cultural Analysis
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 1, 2018

Grids govern our landscapes and cityscapes, our paintings and grocery lists, our maps and our borders, both walled and imaginary. They get us our energy and water, they fuel our online social lives, and structure the ways we perceive and move through space. On the one hand, the grid is a representational mode, one of rendering the world under a Euclidean regime of points, lines, and areas. On the other, it is the material infrastructure of utilities, transit routes and architecture. In an increasingly networked control society, data, numbers, and figures are in a constant feedback loop with material reality.

The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott

(1893-1963). Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, memoir, poetry, young adult

literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We are especially

interested in papers that investigate the process of canonicity, the literary networks to which

Scott belonged, or the role of disability in her career, but all topics will be considered. Scott

participated in various and major literary currents during her writing life, including Imagism,
