Early Modern Funny Business, a special section of "Comedy Studies"

Thursday, October 31, 2024

Comedy today is a billion-dollar industry built on a massive infrastructure of platforms, venues, and media whose segmented marketplace offers something for everyone. This entertainment-economic system has deep roots: it has long been a part of the Western cultural industries. This special issue seeks to explore the history of the professional, institutional, and economic life of comedy in the early modern period as the seeds of modern western economic systems began to take root. What did it mean to be a professional comedian in the early modern period and long eighteenth century? Was comedy vocational? What was the nature of comic apprenticeship? How did the entertainment industry encourage specialization? How was comedy enmeshed in schemas of exchange?

Comparative Literature as Alternative Humanities Ethics, Affect and the Everyday Social

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

In the last few decades, scholars in the Humanities have found it necessary to examine the fundamental underpinnings upon which their disciplines are built. One of the primary questions that animated this re-examination has been regarding the very terms of our engagement with countries and communities that inhabit radically  different  social  and moral life-worlds, living as they do outside the orbit of European Enlightenment values that still regulate both organization and practice within and outside the academy, across the world.

Call for Papers: Values – axiology – cultures

UMCS (Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Poland)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 6, 2024

We would like to invite you to submit proposals for articles for thematic issues "Values – axiology – of culture".

The dynamic reality of the second decade of the 21st century makes us think of the surrounding world as a sphere of constant change, full of violent events, breaking ties with what until recently seemed traditional and unchangeable. It also provokes reflection on how the sense of axiological crisis has been dealt with over the centuries, to what extent the methods of overcoming this crisis developed at that time have opened up new perspectives for the development of culture, literature and language, to what degree they have turned out to be a trap, and finally to what extent they are used in contemporary creative activities.

Masculinity Studies in Ireland: Mapping the Field

updated: 
Tuesday, April 16, 2024 - 4:19pm
Angelos Bollas / Maynooth university
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 30, 2024

As an interdisciplinary academic field devoted to examining and critiquing the social, cultural, and historical constructions of masculinity, masculinity studies explores how masculinity is defined, performed, and experienced across different societies and time periods. This field intersects with various disciplines, including sociology, gender studies, psychology, cultural studies, and history, among others. This often leads to the absence of dedicated departments or research centres in academic institutions focusing exclusively on masculinity studies which, in turn, makes it challenging to enable productive dialogues among disciplinary boundaries.
