MAP

Intersections is an international peer-reviewed journal that is particularly interested in papers that extend or challenge current critical positions in radical ways, especially papers that establish 'impossible' links with other disciplines, theories or approaches. We publish articles on literature, language and theory of any historical period, national culture, ethnic group, genre or media. Articles must demonstrate thorough research with concrete references to recent scholarship in the field. Intersections accepts both British English or American English spelling and forms but authors have to be consistent.

Benjamin Poore, University of York, UK

The deadline for chapter proposals for this edited collection has been extended to September 15th. There has been a very strong response so far, but there are still some areas mentioned in the CFP (reproduced below) that I would very much like to see proposals on, to help address the full range of the subject and different approaches to neo-Victorianism.

As before, potential contributors are invited to submit a 250-word abstract for consideration, along with a biographical note of 50 to 100 words, to:

Dr Benjamin Poore (Department of Theatre, Film and Television, University of York) at benjamin.poore@york.ac.uk

[UPDATE] Bodies in Place: Disability and the Environment in American Literature (9/30/13))

updated: 
Thursday, August 29, 2013 - 10:12pm
NEMLA Conference (April 3-6, Harrisburg, PA)

This panel seeks a broad range of papers that explore how disability challenges normative, even ableist, constructions of the body-environment dyad. Broadly speaking, papers in this panel will survey points of connection between disability studies and ecological criticism. For example, how does disability-centered American literature (re)negotiate the relationship between embodiment and emplacement? How might life writing by people with disabilities contribute to a richer and more inclusive ecological criticism? How might we re-examine and deconstruct "canonical" American environmental literature through a disability studies lens?

Paving the Way: Roads, Rivers, and Railways in Culture and Criticism

From ancient game trails to winding river routes, from the roads of the Roman empire to the railroads of the British Empire, from the multi-laned freeways of modernity to the internet of the new millennium, humans have marked the earth by pushing against their physical limitations. In a parallel way, people have pushed against the ideologies of their community and forged new paths into and through social consciousness, reflecting, refining, and expanding these revolutionary ideas through cultural and critical expressions.

Lynn Nottage Anthology Deadline: 10/15/2013

Playwright Lynn Nottage has expanded the theatrical parameters of storytelling through her bold depictions of African diasporic experiences across time, geography, and circumstance. Nottage's plays reflect her passion and curiosity surrounding humanitarian, historical, and historiographic issues. From an African dwarf in the court of Louis XIV (Las Meninas), to female victims of war in the Congo (Ruined), to working class African Americans navigating the challenges of urban life (Crumbs from the Table of Joy, Intimate Apparel), among others, her body of work sheds light on lives, histories, and communities previously silenced and invisible on the stage.
