Feminism has become the most controversial, most discussed and most contested subject in India’s current academic field. North East Indian feminism generally depended on Western feminism as well as Indian feminism frameworks. These two frameworks are diversely intricate from North-East India in term of race, class, caste, culture and religion, etc. Moreover, it is important to note that most Indian mainstream feminists are brought up in a specific cultural setting i.e. class, caste, religion etc. from various parts of India. ‘Indian feminist thought’ is a term that they coined through their own discourse.

Call for short articles | The Uses of Color in US Popular Cultural Production and Representation

PopMeC peer-reviewed academic blog

Saturday, September 30, 2023

We're reloading our call for short articles on color!

A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?

Call for articles | (Super)Heroes in the 21st-Century American Imagination (issue 2)

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2023

Special dossier | to be published in vol 5 no 2 (May 2024)

A fundamental element of the American imaginary, superhero and heroic narratives have seen a new apogee since the turn of the century. New and old heroes and heroines have populated popular culture, giving rise to a variety of texts that tackle diversity, nostalgia, and the need for imaginaries and narratives that help us deal with the struggles inherent to our current times.

This special dossier, edited by Marica Orrù, will collect essays on (super)hero figures in twenty-first century US popular culture, with a specific focus on diversity, cross-genre texts, and transmedia representations. 

 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

SCMLA - AI in the Professional and Technical Writing Classroom

updated: 
Friday, May 12, 2023 - 10:59am
South Central Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 15, 2023

Call for Proposals:  

Many universities, departments, programs and/or faculty have developed their own policies about the use of AI in the classroom. Some advocate for banishing it completely, while others advocate for embracing it completely. Still others are not quite sure what it can do and whether they should embrace it or not. If banishing AI from the writing classroom, how is that monitored? If embracing AI in the writing classroom – what does that look like? Your research on this topic is valuable to all of us.
