Friday, June 2, 2017

This is a last minute call for contributors to the Encyclopedia of Racism in American Cinema.

This volume is set to go into press this year, but due to a number of contributors dropping out at the last minute, I really need to have some entries covered.

The deadline for these is 2 June--FIRM AND NO EXCEPTIONS or EXTENSIONS.

As there is no time for multiple editing rounds, the entries will have to be submitted in exceptional form.

If you have the time and know you can really turn out a 450-750 word entry in under 2.5 weeks, please contact me. After that, I'll send you a list of last-minute entries to be filled and some detailed instructions for completing your entry.

The digital realm has reconfigured the ways in which production and consumption of games happen.  Consider some prominent examples:

  • In May 2011, self-taught game developer Andrew Spinks released his own world-building game after only five months of production.  The game, Terraria, now available on all major computing and gaming platforms, has sold over 20.5 million units, but is still only available through Spinks’s own publishing firm, Re-Logic.

Nella Larsen’s Passing at Ninety

Guest Editor: Donavan L. Ramon, PhD

Assistant Professor of Liberal Studies, Kentucky State University

When Nella Larsen published her second novel Passing in April 1929, the critical reception was mixed. Writing for local papers in New York, some critics found the novel’s conclusion abrupt, ambiguous, and unconvincing. However, Alice Dunbar-Nelson noted that the novel “delights,” while W.E.B. DuBois praised it as a novel “of great moral import.” In his review, DuBois hoped that passing would one day emerge as a “a petty, silly matter of no real importance which another generation will comprehend with great difficulty.”
