CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 'Contemporary Dramatic Monologues’

(Dramatic monologue, also known as a persona poem, is a type of poetry
written in the form of a speech of an individual character. M.H.
Abrams notes the following three features of the dramatic monologue as
it applies to poetry

1.. A single person, who is patently not the poet, utters the speech
that makes up the whole of the poem, in a specific situation at a
critical moment

2. This person addresses and interacts with one or more other people;
but we know of the auditors' presence, and what they say and do, only
from clues in the discourse of the single speaker.

Youth and Violence in Contemporary Literature and Media

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Young adults have historically been both subject to and perpetrators of violence, regardless of social class or culture of provenience. In the 20th and 21st century, literature and media have paid special attention to this relationship, focusing particularly on how violence shapes youths who will become the "leaders of tomorrow." Different cultures assign distinct values to the threats and challenges young adults face and, likewise, demonstrate varying responses to violence against or by youths.

Visualizing Change: Graphic Arts and Literature in the Contemporary Arab World

Eid Mohamed and Barkuzar Dubbati (Guest Editors) / Arab Studies Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 1, 2018

This special issue focuses on the rise of graphic literature and arts in the Arab world as a means of expression, representation, and political resistance against ideological hegemony. We are interested in scholarly works that examine the intersectionality of the literary and artistic production created before, during, and after the Arab uprisings and the significance of the development of means of production of these works. The uprisings that began in Tunisia in December 2010 popularized the use of non-traditional and independent media for publishing. It proved that seekers of political change do not need the sponsorship of traditional media.

As Holocaust survivors were liberated from concentration camps, prisons, and places of hiding—among other compromised milieus they were forced to inhabit from 1939–45—they brought the memories and the trauma of the Holocaust to the places they eventually came to call “home.” Bringing such emotional and psychological burdens with them, many survivors settled abroad—from Argentina to Canada and from the United States to Israel—and established families, rearing those who would later be called “second-generation” Holocaust witnesses. These children of Holocaust survivors (and their children) have become the carriers and bearers of their parents’ memories and trauma that came to define the domestic experience of survivor households.

Appropriation and Its Discontents (ACLA 2018)

A couple of years ago, when the conceptual poet Kenneth Goldsmith read “The Body of Michael Brown,” an appropriation of Brown’s autopsy report for a conference at Brown University, he unleashed a furious debate about the politics of speaking for another people’s pain or experience.  While some accused him of bad taste and pointed to the long, colonial history of white male artists using black bodies as fodder for their art, others defended the right of the artist to provoke and explore, and decried what they considered the essentialism behind condemnations of Goldsmith’s pieces.  Appropriation’s discontents are also evident in such recent controversies as the protests against the exhibit of Dana Schutz's "Open Casket" at the Whitney Biennial (and the subs
