LITERARY ATMOSPHERICS

A special theme section to be published in the open-access journal Literary Geographies (literarygeographies.net):

 

I'm seeking abstracts focusing on literary engagements with material atmospheres. Essays may address some of these questions:

 

-how does literature address the production, maintenance, and differential breathability of multiple and shifting atmospheres across local and transnational scales?

Practicing Patience in the Middle Ages

updated: 
Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:06pm
2018 New Chaucer Society Congress
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 24, 2017

Proposals for short presentations exploring the nature of medieval patience and its performance in secular and devotional contexts are invited for a session at the New Chaucer Society Congress at the University of Toronto from July 10-15, 2018.  Patience is a complex and even paradoxical virtue. It intersects with agency and, to borrow Sara Ahmed’s term, willfulness, but it is also defined by restraint. It can describe an immediate response and/or a sustained practice. It involves affect as well as intellect. It exists on a continuum (someone can have no, little, or much patience), yet it exhibits a tipping point (when it runs out or is lost).

ReFocus: The Films of Ousmane Sembène

updated: 
Monday, April 3, 2017 - 2:06pm
Sérgio Dias Branco
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2017

Senegalese Ousmane Sembène was one of the most important African artists of the 20th century as a writer and a film director. Yet there are only a handful of studies on his cinematic body of work. They usually adopt the same structure: the analysis of his films in chronological order. This essay collection tackles his work and legacy in a deeper way. Sembène articulated his observations in fiction films instead of documentaries, embracing the African tradition of telling and transmitting stories that creatively reflect the circumstances of a people. His films have strengthened the cause of liberation from colonial domination and other forms of oppression.
