MFS Special Issue - Inter-imperiality

updated: 
Thursday, April 20, 2017 - 12:28pm
Modern Fiction Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

The editors of MFS seek essays that engage with the concept of inter-imperiality, as developed in the recent PMLA “Theories and Methodologies” cluster (March 2015) and elsewhere. The global turn in literary and cultural studies, although productive, sometimes elides the post/colonial, economic, and other historical or geopolitical conditions of literary-cultural production. We solicit essays that offset this tendency by reading literary-cultural texts within an inter-imperial framework.

College Literature Special Issue: “Lively Words: The Politics and Poetics of Experimental Writing,” edited by Tyler Bradway.

updated: 
Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 10:42am

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

The title of this special issue draws inspiration from Gertrude Stein’s “lively words,” a style of experimental writing that has been influential for many queer and feminist experimental writers. The essays in this special issue will reconsider the “liveliness” of experimental writing in the twentieth and twenty-first century—not only how experimental poetics disrupt codified practices of reading, but also how experimental writers conceive of the relationship between their words and the social world more broadly.

Spectacles and Performances: Voodoo Aesthetics within Low and High Art Forms

updated: 
Thursday, April 6, 2017 - 10:35am
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 4, 2017

The pairing of voodoo and literature causes one to immediately think of writers like Charles Chesnutt, Zora Neale Hurston, Ishmael Reed, Toni Cade Bambara, and Jewell Parker Rhodes, as these authors use conjure unequivocally within their literary works. However, voodoo flows more freely in the veins of popular culture than one may realize. Though Christian cultures have largely shunned voodoo as a practice, Western literature has used voodoo as sites of spectacles, moments of revenge, and performances of Africanness. In fact, western literature has a nuanced relationship with voodoo or voodoo aesthetics.
