Evil Women: Women and Evil, 2nd Global Conference

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2019

The second meeting of the global inclusive interdisciplinary Evil Women: Women and Evil project will explore and examine all aspects of the conjunctions between women, the feminine and evil with a view to forming a selective publication to engender further collaboration, research and discussion.  On the one hand we will scrutinise what happens when women themselves behave in ways that are considered evil – when they rob, murder, manipulate, groom, abuse, beguile, embezzle. Women are not expected to behave in aberrant or illegal ways and we will consider the structural and systemic reasons for the heightened interest, repulsion, condemnation – and even hatred – that feminine transgression generates.

I have been approached by Routledge Press to edit a Handbook on Vegan Studies for the press’s Environment and Sustainability division. Handbooks are typically 30-35 chapters, with each chapter being roughly 6000 words. They aim to provide a cutting edge, comprehensive assessment of the field and will be an essential reference title and benchmark publication for the subject. 

 

I am seeking proposals for chapters for the handbook that reflect knowledge of the field and that build on extant work in the discipline. Such proposals might include but are not limited to 

 

Vegan Studies . . . 

 

History

Key figures 

Relationship to animal studies

And critical race studies

MMLA: Re-reading Remakes, Reboots, and Readaptations

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 20, 2019

This permanent section of the Midwestern Modern Languages Association organized by the Marxist Literary Group seeks to examine the economics, politics, and aesthetics of remakes, reboots, and readaptations in film, television, and literature.  In 2019 alone, there are over twenty films being released that are remakes, reboots, or readaptations. These films range from Disney’s live-action remakes of Dumbo, Aladdin, and The Lion King to the second chapter of the readaptation of Stephen King’s IT and a reboot of the Child’s Play franchise. Why are these types of films so popular? More specifically, why is there an increasing market for such films and television shows?

Riverdale: a comic book turned hit TV show, a comic strip turned murder mystery, a town that is both nowhere and everywhere. Recently renewed for a fourth season, the CW’s popular campy teen drama is notable for its apparent departures from the checkout-stand digests of yore, and has a new witchy counterpart in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, as well as a projected spin-off in the development of a Katy Keene series.

Interrogating Men: Toxic Masculinity in the Contemporary Moment

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

“Toxic masculinity” is a relatively new buzz phrase to capture, in the contemporary moment, problematics of male behavior and masculinist beliefs. However, the term needs interrogating if we are to fully understand its implications. What exactly is toxic masculinity? What agenda(s) does the term serve? What makes it toxic, and to whom is it toxic? Indeed, is toxic masculinity itself really a thing, or is it simply a new slogan for behaviours and beliefs that have always been a part of (too) many expressions of masculinity? What is the significance of this phrase to the study of masculinity?

Drama and Society 2: Theater as reflecting the “state-of-the-nation”

 

Theater is a uniquely effective venue for artists to comment on the affairs of a nation, responding to the temper of the times. Not only does it function as a public forum for debate, but the variety of tools in its repertoire renders this art form supremely effective in conveying the complexities that such a comment involves.
