Need one additional essay for Doing Vegan Studies (immediately)

updated: 
Tuesday, January 9, 2018 - 9:37am
Laura Wright, Professor of English, Western Carolina University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I am editing the collection "Doing Vegan Studies," which is under contract for publication in the “Cultural Ecologies of Food in the 21st Century” series published by the University of Nevada Press and slated for publication in 2018. I have a great set of contributors and essays, but due to a contributor being unable to complete an essay, I’ve lost a valuable contribution on veganism and race. I am hoping to solicit an essay that addresses this topic in a compelling and original way. Potential topics include – but are not limited to:

Veganism as perceived white identity category

Problematic comparisons between human slavery and the enslavement of animals

Veganism and Black Lives Matter

Veganism as postcolonial strategy

CFP: Horror Comes Home (edited collection; film and television)

Deadline: Abstracts 1/15/18; Essays 8/1/18

 The horror genre in film and television is no stranger to images of home. As Carol Clover notes, most horror occurs within a “terrible place,” often a space that, in fact, represents home, transforming it from a refuge to a prison or a supernatural battleground.

 How do our understandings of home shift within the horror genre when “home” might mean a coffin, a sideshow, a hotel, a tent, or transitory refuge? What happens to notions of home when it is the site of physical or psychological violence or contamination? This volume seeks to engage with the spectrum of these representations of home within the horror genre.

The main aim of the conference is to provide a forum for discussion on the broad spectrum of issues pertaining to Translation Studies, with a particular emphasis on the position that national identity occupies in societies, as well as to the manners in which it is approached in translation in this rapidly changing and diversifying world.

Therefore, we invite specialists in the areas of literature, linguistics, translation studies, as well as cultural studies to participate in the event. We are open to a wide range of approaches and would welcome researchers specializing in various types of discourse - from literary, historical, social and political discourse, to specialist, professional, audiovisual and other.
