Ideas of Place and Particularity - Journal Issue, May 2012

Saturday, July 2, 2011 - 3:51pm
Modern Horizons Journal

For the May 2012 issue of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various philosophical, literary, artistic, and political expressions of place and particularity which have led to and are part of our time.

Place and particularity may be emphasised practically or addressed theoretically; in both cases, the importance of our own time, space, and experiences, and how these relate to what is different or other, is evident. Whether considering buying and growing food locally, participating in community activism, or working to sustain the diminishing realities of neighbourhoods, the urge to encourage and realise place and particularity is prevalent in our societies.

Ben Parsons/ University of Leicester

Peer English (ISSN 1746-5621) is a refereed academic journal, now in its seventh year, published by members of the School of English at the University of Leicester. Our remit is to publish leading research from those academics at the very beginnings of their careers (graduate study, post-doctoral research) through to those already established within the community. This approach also includes the notion of 'work in progress' and we welcome contributions of high academic standards from those currently involved in active research, be they doctoral candidates or Heads of Departments.

[Update]: CFP - The Apocalypse in Literature and Film (October 1, 2011)

updated: 
Wednesday, June 29, 2011 - 7:36pm
The journal LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory

Alien invasion, viral outbreak, nuclear holocaust, the rise of the machines, the flood, the second coming, the second ice age—these are just a few of the ways human beings have imagined their "end of days." And someone's Armageddon clock is always ticking—we just dodged Harold Camping's rapture on May 21st of this year, and the Mayan-predicted doomsday of 2012 is just around the corner. In the end, what do we reveal about ourselves when we dream of the apocalypse? What are the social and political functions of these narratives in any given historical period? How do different cultures imagine the apocalypse, and what do these differences reveal? What is particular to the narratological design and content of apocalyptic texts?

[UPDATE] American Frontiers: British Association for American Studies Postgraduate Conference (November 12th, 2011)

Keynote: Professor Liam Kennedy (University College Dublin)

The British Association for American Studies (BAAS) welcomes papers for its annual postgraduate conference, to be held at the University of Birmingham on November 12th, 2011.

The general theme of the conference is 'American Frontiers'. The notion of the frontier has permeated the history of the United States, from colonial expansion to the optimistic rhetoric of the Kennedy administration. Moreover, the meaning of 'America' and its place within the world has been a site of ongoing negotiation in geographic, political, economic, military, intellectual and cultural terms.

Steaming into a Victorian Future: A Steampunk Anthology

Ken Dvorak, PhD

We are seeking contributors for a collection of critical essays on Steampunk. Steampunk remains an elusive topic even among its admirers and practitioners, but at its heart, it re-imagines the Victorian age in the future, and re-works its technology, fashion, and values with a dose of anti-modernism. From sci-fi and fantasy to websites catering to a Steampunk lifestyle, this multi-faceted genre demands greater scholarly analysis.

The editors of this anthology seek contributions in the following suggested subject areas:
