SPECTRA Issue 6.2: Call for Papers: Critiques of Resilience

updated: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 9:16am
SPECTRA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 18, 2017

‘Resilience’ has gained traction in recent discourses: whether the rise of nationalist/populist movements throughout many parts of the world, disastrous consequences of climate change, continuous debates around online security and network integrity, or the stresses of self-optimization under increasing economic precarization, resilience, so it seems, is produced as an ideal type to confront these conditions.

Issue 6.2 features an interview with Julian Reid, whose most recent work concerns modes of resilience and indigeneity.

SPECTRA calls for papers that critically engage with the notion of resilience by way of integrating theoretical, empirical, literary, and ethnographic research.

As a result, The Lemon Project: A Journey of Reconciliation and the 50-Year Commemoration of African Americans in Residence Committee are teaming up for “Desegregating Higher Education in Virginia: William and Mary in Historical Context.” As the first three women to live on campus at William & Mary were moving in, other colleges and universities in Virginia and elsewhere were experiencing similar change. What were their stories? What was their process? How did they keep moving forward?

TWC Special Issue CFP: Fan Fiction and Ancient Scribal Cultures (6/1/18; 12/15/19)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 9:14am
Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 1, 2018

This special issue of TWC explores the potential of fan fiction as an interpretative model to study ancient religious texts.

Fan fiction writers are readers of texts who become writers of their own texts. Fans engage with the universe created by the makers of a specific series, film, or book, to which they refer as “canonical” material. For example, they create new storylines, “repair” plots they do not agree with (fix-it fic), write prequels or sequels, and fill in scenes that are missing.
