Popular Mediations of Science – Critical Perspectives on Science and its Contexts

updated: 
Monday, January 30, 2017 - 1:04pm
Open Cultural Studies / De Gruyter Open
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2017

Editors: Dr Maureen Burns & Dr Adam Dodd (The University of Queensland)

 This issue provides a collection of critical cultural perspectives on popularising science. Many cultural studies scholars use science studies, science and technology studies and feminist science studies in our work. This issue offers critical cultural studies, communication and media studies perspectives specifically on the dissemination of science. Instead of exploring the ways that science is communicated to the general public, this issue will explore how mediation is intrinsic to the core practices of science, and the ways in which popular genres feed back into scientific institutions and disciplines.

Achille Mbembe (2003) used the term ‘necropolitics’ to account for the existence of ‘death worlds’ within postcolonial geopolitical spaces. While work in biopolitics has privileged the dynamics of ‘making live and letting die,’ Mbembe highlights the importance of both, extending lives and making deaths.

Gendering PostNature

Genders Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2017

This special issue of Genders invites essays, reviews, roundtables, and creative work that address the emergent category of “postnature” in the new geological epoch of the Anthropocene. We seek interventions across local and global frameworks that consider the ways postnature is informed by gender identities, norms, discourses, and practices, as well as their socio-political, scientific, popular, and aesthetic regulation. As a disciplinary norm deployed to police the “unnatural,” nature has proved to be a labile signifier used to endorse or discredit a wide spectrum of cultural formations.

deadline for submissions:

Dear Colleagues,

Submissions are currently being accepted for an anthology of Appalachian ecocriticism. The Appalachian region has largely been underrepresented in ecocritical studies, and this unique volume will represent Appalachian literature and its environment to the community of ecocritics and, more broadly, the scholarly community as a whole.

Critical investigations into the ways in which Appalachian nature are portrayed in text is, of course, the central theme of the volume. However, additional intersections may include, but are not limited to, the following:

-Accessibility/Disability and the environment

-Animal studies

-Mountaintop removal

-Significance of water/Water quality

-Fracking
