Book Chapter for Memory Studies in Turkey and Beyond: A Handbook by BRILL

Turkey with geographical, historical, social, and cultural attributes stands as a unique laboratory for memory studies. Memory studies in turn can serve as an antidote for grappling with Turkey’s past, present, and the looming issues, challenges and crisis within and beyond its borderlands. Despite such mutual benefits, there remains a notable lack of development in memory studies within Turkish academia, and a shortage of collaborative research on the Turkish memory culture in transcultural memory studies. The underrepresentation of memory studies in the Turkish context inevitably underscores the need for research initiatives that contribute to bridging this gap through comprehensive academic resources.

Call for Book Chapters: "Furor Poeticus": Divine Inspiration in Modern Literature and Poetics

E. Ruiz de Vergara / Complutense University of Madrid

Furor poeticus is a modern name for an ancient idea. In his extant fragments, Democritus claims that the poet writes by divine inspiration (fr. 17) and that Homer's greatness is due to his godlike nature (fr. 21). But the great systematiser of this doctrine is undoubtedly Plato, in dialogues such as the Phaedrus, The Laws and, above all, the Ion: the poet's art cannot be explained by craftsmanship, but by a divine rapture of which the poet remains ignorant. This notion had a long history in Antiquity, and is reformulated in the works of Cicero, Horatius, Seneca or Statius, among others.

The School explores the legacy of Fascism in Italy blending unique in situ visits to art, architecture and historical monuments led by international experts and classes on literature, film and culture led by Sapienza faculty. The goal is to broaden the scholarly assessment of the period and to suggest innovative curricula for students in the humanities, who are also interested in working in museums and cultural institutes in Italy and abroad. The heritage of Fascism in Rome and Italy will be approached in the context of Nazism and Stalinism, and framed within the broader scenario of European colonialism.

In her 2020 publication Glitch Feminism: A Manifesto, Legacy Russell explores the notion of “glitch-as-error with its genesis in the realm of the machinic and the digital.” With this framing, she argues that glitches might “inform the way we see the AFK [Away-From-Keyboard or real] world, shaping how we might participate in it toward greater agency for and by ourselves” (8-9). With her sights set on social systems of gender, race, and sexuality in particular, Russell asks how embodied subjects who defy patriarchal white supremacist cisheterosexist norms are positioned or appear as glitches, as errors, in digital and AFK spaces.

Going Home Again: Revisiting American Literature of Suburbia

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 31, 2024

Chapter proposals are invited for an edited volume tentatively titled Going Home Again: Revisiting American Literature of Suburbia. We are aiming for a balance of revisionary views of “classic” suburban literature of the post-war decades informed by current critical approaches; explorations of how 21st century American literature has represented and revised ideas about suburbia; and arguments looking comparatively at both. We hope that putting newer and older works of American suburban literature in dialogue may suggest ways in which the genre and its history can be redefined.
