This anthology examines the mega successful television series that has reached audiences and gained a loyal fan following globally in dubbed or adapted versions of Colombian writer/producer Fernando Gaitán's original telenovela Yo soy Betty la fea. The collection will raise critical questions about the ways in which the branded "ugly" woman negotiates subjectivity across borders, literal and imaginary. Questions of representation, class, gender, culture, race, and adaptation and translation will frame the discussions. Various theoretical approaches are welcome, in particular feminist, queer, postmodern, and Cultural Studies.
The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies seeks essays from the humanities and social sciences on representations, cultures, and histories of labor and work. We are particularly interested in essays that engage with recent theorizations of contemporary labor practices, especially the work of Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri, Paolo Virno, and Christian Marazzi on, for example, immaterial and affective labor. We look to offer an issue with articles on a range of labor practices, including industrial, immaterial, manual, cultural, affective, unpaid, etc.
This special issue will also include a forum on writing practices in the University.
This call is not limited to interests of any century or geographic location.
This panel will explore the uses of space in Spanish and Latin American twenty-first century film. We seek conference presentations in English or Spanish that explore how space functions, how it is situated and how it is problematized in recent Spanish-language cinema. Please send abstracts in MS Word format of no more than 250 words to Alex Waid (firstname.lastname@example.org) on or before September 12. Complete essays are requested by the first of February.

This collection of scholarly essays explores the Iranian diaspora that resulted from the mass migration from Iran after the 1979 Revolution and the subsequent establishment of the Islamic Republic, as well as the eight-year Iran-Iraq War. While recent scholarly attention has focused on the thirtieth anniversary of the revolution, far less scholarship has been dedicated to understanding and investigating the ways that Iranians and Iranian culture have taken hold in other countries, cultures, and contexts. This collection explores the emergence of a new field of Iranian Diaspora Studies. The last three decades have revealed interesting new hybrid cultural forms of Iranian culture that are emerging in music, film, literature, and cultural rituals/practices.
