Comparative Literature is a dynamic, interdisciplinary field with a global reach. Its roots can be traced to classical philology, but its modern incarnation can probably be found in Goethe's early 19th-century concept of "world literature" (Weltliterature), in which he refers to the international circulation, reception, interpretation, and influence of ideas and the arts beyond cultural boundaries, an idea both poignant and prescient in our age of global communication.

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign? When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and fatherhood?
Can we undomesticate kinship?
CFP: Academic Autobiographies
Intermezzo, a digital longform publication associated with Enculturation (http://www.enculturation.net) seeks submissions that address academic autobiography.
David Shumway once labeled the academic star system as one where autobiography marginalizes community in favor of the individual. Indeed, too few academics pen autobiographies unless they are so-called stars. Yet, all academics have a story to tell, one that merges the personal and the professional, the anecdotal and the political, the banal and the important. Academics should want to tell their stories.
