The editors of the Australian Studies Journal are inviting contributions to a Special Issue on Black Australian author Mudrooroo (1938–2019), to be published October 2024. It will be guest-edited by Gerhard Fischer, UNSW Sydney.

Nearly 30 years after Mudrooroo's publicly rejected claim to Indigenous ancestry, and five years after the author's death in Brisbane (20 January 2019) following a decade of exile in India and Nepal, the proposed Special Issue will provide a first opportunity to re-appraise the complete oeuvre of one of Australia's most prolific, innovative and internationally renowned writers.

T.S. Eliot considered Dante to be his stylistic and existential model and his Commedia a fundamental reading for the appreciation of modern poetry in any language. He maintained that Dante appealed to universal concepts, which is the aspect that made his poem successful throughout the centuries and across the world. According to the festival Dante nel mondo, realized by the municipality of Ravenna in 2016, there are 58 complete translations of the Commedia in European, Asian, African, and South American languages.

Baltic Horror (Edited Collection)

Editor: Fernando Gabriel Pagnoni Berns. Universidad de Buenos Aires (Argentina)

Horror cinema and nationhood are inextricably linked together. As Robin Wood stated in his now classic essay “American Nightmare”, the horror film is the nightmarish meeting of director and audiences, both acknowledging that the film is the enactment of national repressed fears and anxieties. Wood’s thesis has been applied to other geographies, including Latin-America, Asia or part of Europa. Regarding the latter, Italy, Spain or UK have been object of different studies, essays and monographies. Yet, there are European geographies still lacking critical attention

1st International Conference on the Literary Knots between the Hispanic and the Anglophone Worlds “De guiris y castizos”

Tuesday, February 28, 2023

The pathways of both the Hispanic and the anglophone world, despite the apparent distance between them, and the different historical events that have confronted them, have usually been parallel, showing multiple links. These have affected all aspects of society (politics, economy, war, tourism, education…) and have been reflected by arts and letters. From the English intellectuals working at the Toledo School of Translators to Javier Marías’s novels, via the English (and then American) travelers in Spain, Telesforo de Trueba y Cossío’s hybrid texts, and the successive Spanish exile waves, both worlds have coalesced. And that has been done so with multiple and enjoyable fruits, attracting the attention of Academia in the recent decades.

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Pursuing new directions in the subject of Shakespeare and race and addressing some of the gaps in current conversations about representation, casting, performance, diversity and inclusion, Mixed Race Shakespeares explores the ways in which Critical Mixed Race Studies (CMRS) might offer alternative readings of the plays and complicate certain trajectories and terminologies. More specifically, this collection aims to challenge hypodescent and monoracial norms, destabilize official racial categories/designations and advance the study of topics such as racial mixing, racial passing, interraciality, biracialism, multiracialism, transracialism and ethnoracialism.

The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott (1893-1963).

Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, memoir, poetry, young adult literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We are especially interested in papers that investigate the process of canonicity, the literary networks to which Scott belonged, or the role of disability in her career, but all topics will be considered. Scott participated in various and major literary currents during her writing life, including Imagism, naturalism, and modernism, and she had a wide variety of literary mentors, including Lola Ridge, Theodore Dreiser, Waldo Frank, William Carlos Williams, and Jean Rhys, among others.

It takes care and attention and time to handle natural hair. Something we have lost from our African culture are the rituals of health and beauty and taking time to anoint ourselves. And the first way we lost it was in our hair.   Hariette Cole, in Hair Story

Jean-Louis Claret "Rubriques" Aix-Marseille University
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 30, 2022

The new journal Rubriques is preparing a special issue dedicated to Shakespearean drama.  It proposes to shed light on the various zones where the theatrical text and its illustrations dovetail or face each other from a safe distance. It will discuss the capacity of images to show what the text says or keeps unsaid and analyze the many ways in which images can appropriate and digest theatrical space. Among the contributions to this volume, we expect some to compare the different visual representations of the same scene or to analyse synthetically the productions of one theatrical tradition or of specific trends (for ex, Pre-Raphaelism) or to shed light on the treatment of one specific genre (comedies, tragedies, history plays, romances).

In recent decades, human rights have risen to prominence as a “dominant discourse for addressing issues of social justice” (Swanson Goldberg and Schultheis Moore 2012, 4). Scholars have demonstrated (and interrogated) the role that literature has played in human rights’ ascension–from the novel’s progressive expansion of the category of the “human” (Hunt 2007), to the widespread (albeit compromised) liberal belief that conveying narratives of suffering to concerned publics can promote justice (Schaffer and Smith 2004), to the evidence that “human rights bestsellers” shore up American militarism and neoliberal imperialism (Anker 2012).
