Queer Rhetorics: Dirtysexy (A Special Issue of Pre/Text)

updated: 
Thursday, September 7, 2017 - 10:06am
Jacqueline Rhodes, Michigan State University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 1, 2017

In the 25 years since Pre/Text’s first special issue on queer rhetoric, too much and not enough has happened with the queer in rhetoric and writing studies. To what extent have we mainstreamed queer movements? Where is there still room for generative transgression in rhetorical thought? How have assimilationist trends in mainstream LGBTQ culture found their way in and out of our field? Most important, what happened to sex/ual rhetoric? This special issue focuses on thoughtful provocation, open secrets, and pointed intersections in queer rhetoric, looking at moments of transgressive signification that open pathways for future work. Send 250-word abstracts to guest editor Jacqueline Rhodes (jrhodes@msu.edu).

 

[ACLA 2018] Migratory Forms and Their Affective Challenges

updated: 
Thursday, September 7, 2017 - 10:46am
Jackie Kim, Harvard University; Melih Levi, Stanford University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

This seminar probes the significance of poetic forms as an affective vehicle in the context of their cross-cultural circulation and adaptation. How do migratory forms preserve, permute, and perform their affective potential as they cross linguistic and cultural borders? How does the question of forms and their transcultural adaptability reconfigure the principle of (un)translatability? How does cross-cultural transference complicate the affective potentiality of a form? What does a form lose and gain in such processes of global translation? What are, if at all existent, the responsibilities of a poet experimenting with borrowed forms?

Volume 5 

Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies invites essay submissions for Volume Five on the theme of ‘Representations and Recollections of Empire’.

In its broadest sense, empire as a term is used to describe a state or cluster of lands and states ruled by a monarch or emperor. With its implications of wide and far reaching dominion, empire as a concept also lends itself to a broad range of subject areas that may consider a number of cultural groups and historical periods, concepts of power and dominance, influence and control.
