The Centre for Studies in Otherness

The Centre for Studies in Otherness invites papers for the e-journal issue Otherness: Essays and Studies 2.2.

Otherness: Essays and Studies, a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary e-journal, publishes research articles from and across different academic disciplines that examine, in as many ways as possible, the concepts of otherness and alterity. We particularly appreciate dynamic cross-disciplinary study. We publish two issues a year, alternating between special topic issues and general issues. This is a call for our general issue, forthcoming in Winter 2011.

New deadline, July 1.

In Jean-Luc Nancy's The Inoperative Community representations are not just works of art (oeuvre); they also, in fact, work. Representations present "community" and thereby give a disparate group of beings an identity, borders, and a body. If representations work, what happens when a work founders, when it falls apart, and opens onto something else? Would this opening then be the place or space of play, even serious play? What does this "absence of work" look like formally? What are the ethical consequences of such playful interruptions? Papers on non-mainstream directors are of particular interest.

Call for papers for an edited collection tentatively titled Materialist Readings of Children's Literature and Culture: Classic and Contemporary Essays.

The aim of the collection is to demonstrate the significance of historical materialist approaches to children's literature and culture (i.e. Marx, Lukacs, Williams, Eagleton, Jameson, Ariel Dorfman, Jack Zipes, Ian Wojcik-Andrews, Gayatri Spivak, etc.).
