Journal of Gaming & Virtual Worlds
(ISSN: 1757191X / Online ISSN: 17571928)
As Reviews Editor for the Journal of Gaming & Virtual Worlds, I am always seeking reviewers for game/gaming-related academic books, websites, communities, and “popular” books, in addition to reviews of virtual environments and, of course, videogames (recent or older, single- or multiplayer, across all platforms). If you are interested in writing a videogame-related or virtual space-related review, please email Matthew Johnson <matjohn @ siue . edu >. Happy to entertain questions.
This edited anthology explores the nexus between violence and carcerality within the discursive order of state practices. Scholars within humanities, engaging with critiques of carcerality in relation to state violence from different global contexts are welcome to contribute to this anthology. This volume aims to align with the larger objectives envisioned by activist groups such as M4BL (Movement for Black Lives): building alliances with indigenous people’s struggles, political prisoners’ solidarity work, and activists resisting violence against women and LGBTQIA communities. It explores the potential to forge a global discursive order oriented toward anticolonial liberation struggles.
We invite contributions for Playing with the Rules: The Ethics of Playing, Researching, and Teaching Games in the Writing Classroom
The Charge of the Light Brigade: Half a Century Onward
A One-Day Symposium
Friday 18 May 2018, The Void Cinema, Sheffield Hallam University
Next year sees the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Woodfall Films’ epic production The Charge of the Light Brigade. While the film suffered from director Tony Richardson’s fractious relationship with the critics when it first appeared, it has subsequently assumed a totemic significance in British cinema history, embracing the anti-imperial values of the 1960s counter-culture in its depiction of one of the great disasters of British military history.
This CFP calls for critical essays and creative works that address the intersection of disability studies and ecocriticism, or disability and the environment. In terms of critical essays, we will consider analyses of novels, poetry, comics, dance, art, and movies. We will also consider creative works (including creative nonfiction, poetry, and fiction) that center on an exploration of the relationship(s) between disability and the environment.
We are pleased to announce the 12th annual NFEAP summer conference, which will take place on Thursday the 7th and Friday the 8th of June 2018 at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus), Oslo, Norway.
The theme for the 2018 conference is The Future of Genres.
Or, to put it another way, “The Futures of Genre” …
Victorian Animal Encounters: A one day conference University of Portsmouth UK, 4 May 2018 Keynote speaker: Dr Jane Hamlett, Royal Holloway “I went to show my friend Pigott the grave of the illustrious Shelley. Approaching the resting-place of the divine poet in a bright sunlight, the finest black Tom you ever saw discovered at an incredible distance that a catanthropist had entered the cemetery—rushed up at a gallop with his tail at right-angles to his spine—turned over on his back with his four paws in the air, and said in the language of cats: ‘Shelley be hanged! Come and tickle me!’ I stooped and tickled him. We were both profoundly affected.” (Wilkie Collins, letter to his mother, 1866).
