The New Union

The New Union, a new online literary magazine launching in autumn 2013, requires guest articles for online publication.

We welcome articles on any and all literary subjects and genres, and from any period in history.

Articles should be approximately 1,000 words in length (although this is not set in stone).

The only stipulation is that every article must find an interesting angle from which to look at a text, author, or subject. No dull, academically formal articles required!

We particularly welcome articles that are able to combine literary topics with modern news and issues, and other subjects such as film, theatre, etc.

We would also like to publish a section of articles on unknown writers, poets, and texts.

The Atlantic World Research Network, in partnership with Quaintance-Weaver Restaurants and Hotels and The Fresh Market, presents a unique feast of ideas and food—an international and interdisciplinary conference exploring four great transatlantic foodways: Carolina Lowcountry, African, Italian, and Spanish/Latin American. Featuring famed food scholars and leading chefs, our conference will bring together inquiring minds and discerning palates as we ask how transatlantic contact combined and transformed old foodways, and how those foodways have transformed us all.

[UPDATE} Comically Queer: NeMLA 2014

Sunday, August 25, 2013 - 8:56pm
Northeast Modern Language Association

Two decades ago, Judith Butler's "Critically Queer" asked what it might mean to make "queer" an object of critical inquiry and, equally, what it might mean for the queer to become critical of her identification as queer. "Comically Queer" echoes Butler's formulation in order to ask how the comic might be deployed to do queer work and how the queer can be located in relation to the comic. This panel welcomes papers that draw from queer theory as well as disability, post-colonial, and critical race studies in order to query normative regimes that determine what it means to be (and which bodies are) taken seriously.

Editorial Board Members and Peer Reviewers Needed

International Society for Heresy Studies -The Journal of Heresy Studies

The recently founded International Society for Heresy Studies is starting a new online journal tentatively titled The Journal of Heresy Studies. The journal will focus on interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed academic papers on the subjects of heresy, blasphemy and non-belief in contexts of literature, art, and culture. Current academic discussions of religion and faith often pass over these subjects or give them a confessional turn, a critical blind spot that this new publication aims to illuminate.
