JOCPC is now accepting article submissions for the Fall 2023 issue focusing on the broad theme of the mechanized child. We have kept the theme open-ended and invite works across a wide range of disciplines where researchers are exploring representations of the intersection between the child figure, childhood and mechanization. This may include robotics, automatons, cyborgs, AI, VR, and other emerging technologies, both historical and future forward, real and fictional, and how these are used by, to, on and for children. Born alongside new and emerging technologies, children have an innate fluency with new technologies that often leave their adult counterparts behind, reinforcing the notion of children as symbols of futurity.

The climate crisis posits a major threat to the anthropocene regardless of geopolitical boundaries. However, Eurocentric discourses seldom acknowledge the resource exploitation that fuels climate change. This panel seeks to explore works of literature that highlight such instances of resource exploitation in the postcolony vis-à-vis the ideas of security and insecurity in the times of an emergent climate crisis. With a special focus on the specters of neocolonialism that threaten the security of postcolonial ecospheres, this panel seeks to decolonize the discourses of climate change that refuse to address the role played by Western ideology and capital in the rendering insecure of ecologies in the postcolony.

Please send in your abstracts for a special panel proposed by me for MLA 2024: "Speculative Fiction and Work: Histories, Futures and Resilience" This panel examines speculative/sci-fi re-imaginings of the exploitation of laboring, vulnerable bodies to serve an extractive society and their resistances. How to envision a socially just future shaped for and by precarious labor? Please submit 250-word abstracts by 25 March, 2023 to email@example.com Full description: This panel traces the interconnected histories and future of labor, vulnerable populations, and their resilience.

In addition to our Open Call for Papers, the Interdisciplinary Journal of Leadership Studies, with the University of Richmond’s Jepson School of Leadership Studies, publishes a wide range of high-quality scholarship. We are currently accepting paper proposals that contemplate the relationship between leadership and the digital landscape. More specifically, we invite papers that question the advantages, drawbacks, and ethics of artificial intelligence (e.g., chatbots, algorithms, etc.), social media, the singularity, et al. What, we ask scholars to question, are the relationships between these forces and leadership?
