Sherryl Vint

Science Fictions Studies invites proposals for a special issue on The Animal, exploring the variety of ways that science fiction may be analysed from the perspective of animal studies. Animals are among the oldest metaphors through which humanity has defined itself. We welcome both papers that deal with representations of animals and the metaphorical use of the category of speciesism to enforce social boundaries and establish a humanist subject, and also papers that consider our changing material relationships with animals as they are mediated by changing technologies.

Critical F(r)iction? Literature, Criticism and the Space Between in Contemporary
Writing

"Generally, an English Lit degree trains you to be a useless member of the
modern world and that's what I'm being in the only way I know how." - Zadie
Smith

Essays are invited for a proposed collection on the theme of critical
f(r)iction, a term which denotes the potential
possibilities/opportunities/conflicts/problems in the work of critics who write
fiction, and creative writers who are also literary critics.

CFP: Representation of Sex and Sexuality in Recent Caribbean Women's Writing (9/15/06; NEMLA, 3/1/07-3/4/07)

Since the 1990s, recent Anglophone Caribbean writing has broken the
literary mold set by the text of the 1950s onwards by foregrounding the
trope of sex and sexuality, along with the relational categories of race,
class, and gender to give a fuller understanding of Caribbean reality.
There is now a pressing need for critical, scholarly, examination of this
new dimension of Caribbean literature.

I invite papers that examine the representation of sex and sexuality as
illustrated in the poetry, fiction, and autobiographical work of
contemporary women writers of the Anglophone Caibbean.
