Edited Volume, Cinema Liberation Theology

 

I am looking for 7-10 additional 4,000-5,000 word chapters on cinema and liberation theology for an edited collection which a major academic publisher is interested in.

This collection focuses on liberation narratives which are in some way related to or inspired by religious traditions/literatures/practices/discourses from around the world. The films and analyses need not be explicitly religious in content, but need only to be argued in the context of liberation with theology, spirituality, or divinity.

Sublime Cognition: Science Fiction and Metaphysics

updated: 
Tuesday, March 6, 2018 - 6:00am
London Science Fiction Research Community
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Deploying the broad catch-all of ‘metaphysics’, this conference will explore SF’s lost history of engagement with myth, magic, religion and the supernatural. Central areas of focus will include an assessment of what role (if any) metaphysical phenomena have played in science fiction, and to what degree SF can be distanced from the spiritual, supernatural and numinous concerns of other literatures of the fantastic. Assessing SF’s complex relationship with the metaphysical opens into many productive areas of inquiry: How can science fictional texts help us understand broader cultural processes of knowledge formation and paradigm shift?

Special Issue on Amiri Baraka

updated: 
Monday, March 5, 2018 - 10:07am
Journal of American Studies of Turkey (JAST)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 1, 2018

This issue of JAST will be dedicated to the works and legacy of Amiri Baraka—poet, dramatist, essayist and activist. Formerly known as LeRoi Jones, Amiri Baraka entered the Greenwich Village literary scene in 1957 as one of the most original poets and editors of the new writing and poetry that was emerging outside of academia and the established publishing world. Baraka’s profound and pointed criticism took shape in the milieu of the racial brutality of the 1960s, and continued to transform as Black Power was put into practice. Amidst assassinations and urban rebellions, he retreated to his hometown, Newark, New Jersey, and committed himself to African American cultural expression in the broadest sense of the term.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 15, 2018

In light of the FIFA world cup 2018 in Russia, an upcoming issue of gender forum approaches the question of gender and sports from a multi- and interdisciplinary angle. With the common division into men’s and women’s sports, athleticism appears as an inherently gendered occupation. Yet even outside the pitch itself, these implications reign supreme.

The Limits of Form: On Literary Content

Friday, March 2, 2018 - 4:13am
MLA 2019: Special Session
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

What exactly is the content of a literary text, and how does it affect the experience of reading?  How should critics approach a text's overt elements and ideas?  A lengthy and currently influential tradition of thought has emphasized literary form in a variety of creative ways, but very little has been done to explain how critics should think about content.  This panel will bring together six scholars, who will each briefly (in 8 to 10 minutes) offer a definition of literary content and an example from a particular text.  Please submit an abstract for such a paper, along with a one-page CV, to pfessenbecker at gmail.com by March 15.

Note: this is a non-guaranteed special session, and requires MLA approval.
