Tuesday, March 1, 2016 - 9:33am
full name / name of organization: 
The Wyndham Lewis Society

Wyndham Lewis's centrality in the 'little magazine' and periodical cultures of the early twentieth century is well established. In addition to editing several journals himself - 'BLAST', 'The Tyro', and 'The Enemy' - Lewis contributed to 'The English Review', 'The New Age', 'The Tramp', 'The Egoist', 'The Little Review', 'Art and Letters', 'The Athenaeum', and 'The Criterion', among many others. This volume of 'JWLS' seeks 7-10,000-word essays that will expand our understanding of Lewis's contributions to these publications and the social, artistic, bibliographic, and economic networks from which they are inseparable. All submissions should try to engage with the most recent relevant scholarship. Suggested topics include:

Extended Deadline: 1 April 2016

'A real failure does not need an excuse. It is an end in itself.' - Gertrude Stein, Four in America

'Under certain circumstances failing, losing, forgetting, unmaking, undoing, unbecoming, not knowing may in fact offer more creative, more cooperative, more surprising ways of being in the world.' - Jack Halberstam, The Queer Art of Failure

Queer Cinema (Publication date: Fall 2016) [UPDATE]

full name / name of organization: 
Gender Forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies

Ever since the momentous success of Ang Lee's western-drama Brokeback Mountain, queer film has increasingly reached the mainstream. Brokeback Mountain was followed by a considerable amount of Hollywood productions that focused on representations of queer issues and characters such as Milk, A Single Man, The Imitation Game and, as the youngest addition to the list, Stonewall. The latter is directed by Roland Emmerich, a filmmaker who is usually known for blockbusters like Independence Day. The fact that both star directors and casts have entered the production of critically and commercially successful queer film-making is indicative of its mainstream potential and a growing target audience.

Dystopia and Utopia in Ethnic Literature

"In a dystopian story, society itself is typically the antagonist; it is society that is actively working against the protagonist's aims and desires. This oppression frequently is enacted by a totalitarian or authoritarian government, resulting in the loss of civil liberties and untenable living conditions, caused by any number of circumstances, such as world overpopulation, laws controlling a person's sexual or reproductive freedom, and living under constant surveillance" (John Joseph Adams, 2011).
