[UPDATE] CFP: Toy Stories: The Toy as Hero

updated: 
Sunday, February 22, 2015 - 10:14pm
full name / name of organization: 
Tanya Jones, M.Ed & Chris Stoneley

Abstracts are being welcomed for a proposed collection examining the toy as hero. Toys, a celebrated part of childhood and often key figures in children's imaginative play, have a fantastic history of heroism in print and on film. Open to examinations of literature, comics, and film, the collection seeks to be a repository of original essays that analyze the roles toys play as protectors of the child(ren) they love, as heroes of their own stories, or as champions for the greater good.
Possible pieces for consideration:

contact email: 

Chapter proposals are invited for two new book projects, Ecofeminist Intersections and New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism, due by March 1, 2015. Both books explore the manifold ways that ecofeminism has been used across a range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, including but not limited to such fields as literary criticism, history, philosophy, religious studies, women's studies, anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, geography, and political science. Current doctoral students are especially encouraged to submit proposals for New Voices in Ecofeminist Activism, though all proposals will be considered for both books.

"Temporalities and Childhood" is a panel at the upcoming PAMLA 2015 conference, November 6-8, 2015, in Portland, USA.

[UPDATE] 2016 MLA Special Session: More-Than-Human Publics in 19th-Century English Lit

updated: 
Saturday, February 21, 2015 - 2:42am
full name / name of organization: 
Shun Yin Kiang/ Northeastern University

Possible topics: animal-human encounters, pastoral or colonial representations of ecologies/life words, and narratives and poetics of living in common(s). We are interested in papers that attend to the affective, everyday nature of more-than-huamn encounters and eco-spheres, as invoked/mediated in Romantic poetry and Victorian fiction. The extent to which representations of more-than-human publics in 19th-century English literature confound rather than confirm taxonomic thinking, or, more broadly, the ways in which more-than-human publics animate new relations/approaches to eco-criticism, (post-)colonial studies, body politics, posthumanism, more-than-humanism, etc., are of interest to us as well.
