Clues: A Journal of Detection

Submission deadline: December 29, 2011
Guest editor: A. B. Emrys (University of Nebraska–Kearney)

Paranormal mysteries often feature the usual suspects (ghosts, vampires, werewolves, and so forth) but also branch into the gothic, spirituality (as in Tony Hillerman's skinwalkers, Michael Gruber's shaman trilogy), and other magic realism, as well as biochemical transformation (as in the Relic series) and a wide variety of mystery hybrids with horror and dark fantasy. For this theme issue of _Clues_, potential contributors are urged to think outside the normal boxes. Thematic analysis might include (but is not limited to):

'The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the 'state of emergency' in which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must attain to a conception of history which is in keeping with this insight. Then we shall clearly realize that it is our task to bring about a real state of emergency, and this will improve our position in the struggle against fascism.'

Call for contributions to essay collection: Children's series books and internationalism

updated: 
Tuesday, June 14, 2011 - 10:35am
Marietta Frank, U Pitt-Bradford, and Karen Sands-O'Connor, Buffalo State College

The editors are currently seeking proposals for a collection of essays investigating internationalism in children's series books. With the tenth anniversary of the World Trade Center bombings, the "Arab Spring," and the increasing demands of non-Western countries for a voice in global politics, this is a particularly pertinent moment to examine how literature for children faces the challenges and possibilities of global interaction. Series books, with their reliance on the comfort of the familiar blended with the lure of adventure, frequently use the foreign and/or international setting as moral proving ground for the characters.

Transatlantic Gender-Crossings: Masquerade, Transvestitisms & the Carnivalesque / NeMLA, March 15-18, 2012, Rochester, NY

Tuesday, June 14, 2011 - 9:14am
Anita Duneer / Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)

This panel seeks papers on gender-crossings in fiction and drama by authors on both sides of the Atlantic. Topics might include a variety of literary and performative crossings, which transgress and re-imagine gender roles, or challenge the notion of discrete binaries of gender and sexuality. Of particular interest are papers that explore the ways in which literary masquerades, transvestitisms, and carnivalesque versions of gender or sexual identity intersect with issues of race, class, and national identity.
