Need one additional essay for Doing Vegan Studies (immediately)

Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - 9:37am
Laura Wright, Professor of English, Western Carolina University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I am editing the collection "Doing Vegan Studies," which is under contract for publication in the “Cultural Ecologies of Food in the 21st Century” series published by the University of Nevada Press and slated for publication in 2018. I have a great set of contributors and essays, but due to a contributor being unable to complete an essay, I’ve lost a valuable contribution on veganism and race. I am hoping to solicit an essay that addresses this topic in a compelling and original way. Potential topics include – but are not limited to:

Veganism as perceived white identity category

Problematic comparisons between human slavery and the enslavement of animals

Veganism and Black Lives Matter

Veganism as postcolonial strategy

Deadline Extended! Environmental Remediation: Genre, Visibility, and Ecological Crisis in African Literatures (Panel CFP)

Saturday, February 3, 2018 - 4:21pm

Remediation has emerged as a keyword in both new media studies and sustainability discourses. While Bolter and Grusin define it in terms of repurposing old media in new forms, Leerom Medovoi traces its ethically promising, yet politically empty rhetoric for environmentalism. Further, Medovoi asserts these dual definitions of remediation converge in Global South ecologies, many of which remain marginalized by mainstream coverage of environmental crises due to their non-spectacular exposure to what Rob Nixon terms “slow violence.” Whereas Medovoi studies ongoing pollution in the Niger Delta, this panel pursues the formal and environmental definitions of remediation as they emerge in African literatures and intersect with new/multi-media more broadly.

“My name is Karim Amir, and I am an Englishman born and bred, almost.
I am often considered to be a funny kind of Englishman,
a new breed as it were,
having emerged from two old histories.”
