Greetings fellow scholars,

This is a CFP for the Fall 2009 Humanities Review, a literary journal for the St. John's University English Department in Queens, NY.

Our current theme focuses on the contemporary construction of American Identity.

We are also strongly requesting art submissions that best exemplify the theme. Limited color or mono-chrome are preferred. Please submit .TIFF FILES ONLY @ 800 dpi to the email address below.

Some matters to consider:

How has the social practice of culture formed / continue to form the ideological condition of "being American?" With that said, what does it mean to be an American in the 21st Century? What are the ontological pieces that plait our parsonage?

The Margins of the Logos: Children in 19th Century English Literature, NeMLA, Montreal 4/7-4/11/10, deadline: 9/30/09

Alongside Realism in the 19th century, which foregrounded a logical and representable image of the world, there ran a trend in literature that emphasized experience at the margins of the logos, including childhood, absurdity, fantasy, trauma, eroticism, and comedy. This panel seeks theoretically and/or historically informed papers that will explore this literature by looking at the role of childhood, and what it reveals about subjectivity, in 19th century British literature. Topics might include the role of childhood memory or fantasy in adult subjectivity; questions of gender, genre, eroticism, or empire in relation to childhood.

Global

Chapter proposals are invited for an edited book on the themes and films of Claire Denis. As Denis' films are rich in subject matter, story, theme and contemporary concerns, the preference is for a cross-disciplinary perspective, which may include film studies but does not have to concentrate solely on or derive from it.

CFP - Horror Politics

It is through politics that affairs are governed, and order and justice are expected. However, the word "politics" often connotes corruption and abuse. Politics involve power, and power implies its own misuse. The double bind of politics is in its very inescapability. Politics serve to organize, yet simultaneously produce dishonesty through the abuse of power.

Specs Journal/ Rollins College

specs, a journal of arts and culture, invites submissions of critical and/or creative work for the 3rd volume on the theme of "Toys." We seek works of fiction, non-fiction, cultural criticism, artwork, poetry, and pieces that blur genre boundaries. The editorial board consists of writers and academics from various fields. Articles are peer-reviewed. We are excited by specialty, an excess of detail, fragments, narratives, meta-narratives, and more. We are particularly interested in works that examine contemporary culture and/or cross the critical/creative divide while riffing on the theme of "Toys" in multiple ways (philosophy, anthropology, mythology):
