Animal Figurations in Modernist Literature and Culture
Edited by Alex Goody and Saskia McCracken
Deadline for Abstracts 14 September 2020
Since Carol J. Clover’s seminal work Men, Women, and Chainsaws (1992), feminist readings of horror movies have gained an enthusiastic theoretical momentum. In employing various frameworks and lenses and by complicating our spectatorial position, this rich corpus of literature has perhaps contributed to a resignification of the genre and its tropes. However, amid the emergence of luminous movies that defy and challenge horror’s misogynistic and racialized foundations, several questions arise: Is contemporary horror cinema really abjuring its heteronormative, original structure? Does mainstream horror still convey trite reactionary messages with renewed vigor?
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS:
“What is ethical innovation?”
Have the last 20-50 years of innovation been a success? How does society view the founder? Is risk appropriately distributed across the innovation dynamic? What roles should the government take in scientific progress? What entities are responsible for technical disasters? How important are individual rights and privacy? What problems should innovators focus on for the next twenty years?
The collection includes a range of essays from both academics and professionals working on ethical issues facing the future of innovation.
Chief Editor's Bio: Dr. Saswat Samay Das teaches Critical Theory, Continental Thinking and Deleuze Studies at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India.

The months of May and June, 2020, saw unprecedented global protests against anti-Black racism and calls for a more equitable and just society that recognizes the humanity and lives of people of African descent. While these protests initially originated across the United States, protesters around the world quickly galvanized in support of these issues organizing events in a growing number of countries, including Canada, Mexico, Haiti, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, South Africa, Australia and Japan. This has been an important moment for Black scholars, activists, and cultural producers everywhere—as well as their friends and allies—to reflect not only on the crisis that has marked Black lives, but also on our future possibilities.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
CURRENTS NO. 6
NEW TRENDS IN ENGLISH STUDIES FOR THE 2020s
We are pleased to announce the call for papers for the sixth issue of CURRENTS: A Journal of Young English Philology Thought and Review. CURRENTS is an open access, peer-reviewed, yearly interdisciplinary journal, based in Toruń (Nicolaus Copernicus University), addressed to young researchers in the field of English studies.
Goal: With obvious propagandistic aims, the feature films and documentaries produced in the Eastern Bloc would ‘rewrite’ the history in the making, providing their home audiences with the image of a system that should have been perceived as victorious against the evils of the corrupt, capitalist West, and as a blessing for the ones fortunate enough to be under the protection of the Party.
Equally worth commenting on are the few cultural products of the age that escaped censorship in their attempt to fight the regime, either by subtle insertion of subversive elements in the communist visual propaganda or by ‘emigration’ to a free world that was more than willing to find out what was going on behind the Iron Curtain.
