CFP: David Bowie and Romanticism
JNT: Journal of Narrative Theory invites submissions exploring the life and work of refugees as they engage the humanities today. Just as the mid-twentieth century refugee crisis shaped the emergence and development of aesthetic and theoretical movements around World War II, the mass movement of displaced peoples today stems from a convergence of forces concomitantly reshaping art and humanistic thought, from economic globalization to climate change, neoliberalism, neoimperialism, resurgent nationalisms, violence against black, latinx, Muslim, and queer peoples, and the waning securities of sovereignty and citizenship.
The Projector is developing a special issue on film and media productions created by and for individuals and constituencies interested in something other than standard Hollywood fare. The issue is for research that illuminates the cultural, historical, aesthetic, or material dimensions of productions that contribute to the remarkable but far less visible traditions of independent, international, or DIY film and media – traditions that give voice to people consistently left out of Hollywood’s long history of insular, hegemonic, and formulaic representations.

Theme: The Human Image in a Changing World
The theme for the 5th World Humanities Forum is “The Human Image in a Changing World.” The very purpose of humanities research is to study humans, but the image of humans however, has gone through on-going changes not only throughout different time periods but also according to the various local situations. Therefore it is important that we primarily capture human images and then document the characteristics of the human images from past to present in various academic and ordinary lives.
