CHAPTER PROPOSALS ARE INVITED FOR AN EDITED VOLUME TITLED STATES AND PRISONS: HUMANITIES AND CARCERAL IMAGINARIES

updated: 
Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - 10:33am
Shreerekha Subramanian/University of Houston-Clear Lake
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

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.

XVII INTERNATIONAL AEDEI CONFERENCE

Tuesday, January 16, 2018 - 3:48pm
AEDEI-2018: “Eco-Fictions Irish Studies”. Santiago de Compostela, Spain
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 15, 2018

Nature, the landscape and the environment have enjoyed a recurrent presence, indeed have been constant protagonists, in Irish literature and culture.This wild isolated island, originally feared or even despised by foreigners progressively became that romanticized, pre-modern Arcadia imagined by tourists from the early twentieth century onwards. The once desolated and barren landscapes of the Great Hunger were imaginatively recreated as green pastures, nostalgically conjured up by nineteenth- and twentieth-century Irish emigrants across the world.

The Shifting Landscape of Crime on the German Small Screen

updated: 
Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 9:17am
German Studies Association Annual Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 5, 2018

We are soliciting abstracts for a panel at the German Studies Association Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA September 27-30, 2018.

Traditionally the small screen has portrayed danger and crime in the context of the metropolitan, but shows like Weinberg, Dark, Tatort, Polizeiruf 110, among others have increasingly shifted the focus to suburbs, small-towns, and countryside infringing on the tranquility of these supposedly safe spaces. These shows expose the deviance and intrigue of non-metropolitan locales. Does this conflict move from the city and into the small-town or have these towns always maintained an undercurrent of menace, of which we are just now aware?
