deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2018

Beginning with the linguistic turn, there have been an increasing number of methodological “turns” in humanities-related fields, including the visual turn, the sonic turn, the corporeal turn, the spectral turn, the ontological turn, the non-human turn, the infrastructure turn, and so forth. This special issue of diacritics proposes to critically examine the phenomenon of the turn, focusing on the way in which it pivots on the juncture of a set of theoretical and methodological considerations.

SPECTRA Issue 6.2: Call for Papers: Critiques of Resilience

updated: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 9:16am
SPECTRA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 18, 2017

‘Resilience’ has gained traction in recent discourses: whether the rise of nationalist/populist movements throughout many parts of the world, disastrous consequences of climate change, continuous debates around online security and network integrity, or the stresses of self-optimization under increasing economic precarization, resilience, so it seems, is produced as an ideal type to confront these conditions.

Issue 6.2 features an interview with Julian Reid, whose most recent work concerns modes of resilience and indigeneity.

SPECTRA calls for papers that critically engage with the notion of resilience by way of integrating theoretical, empirical, literary, and ethnographic research.

Call for Panelists: Transgender Identity Politics

Trans(form)ing Queer: The 11th Annual DC Queer Studies Symposium
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 17, 2017

In 2016, a viral The New York Times op-ed by political scientist Mark Lilla called for “The End of Identity Liberalism,” the political formation putatively at the root of Donald Trump’s election. The author claimed the U.S. must enter a “post-identity liberalism” in order to avoid the rampant fascism of modernity. He emphasizes majoritarian logics in order for progressives to center “the issues that affect a vast majority of them” as focusing on identity “can drive potential allies away,” providing the example of bathrooms being tiresome for (cisgender) voters to hear about.
