In La naturaleza colonizada: Ecología política y minería en América Latina (2011), Héctor Alimonda highlights political-intellectual traditions in Latin America that, when elaborated within other geopolitical forms of knowledge, show us how “a long history of unequal, combined development and a global rupture of the society-nature metabolism increasingly penalizes Latin American nature and its communities” (22). Alimonda’s notion of political ecology in Latin America engages with traditions fundamentally dedicated to multifaceted practices of care—to the acknowledgment of and participation in sustainable economic, environmental, and political development and protection in face of regional, national, and international extractivist forces.

This anthology’s scope will be broad, with a focus on analysis of women writers, society, and nature in the past, present, and future.
Submissions are now open for the second issue of The Journal of Fantasy and Fan Cultures. Submissions are due December 1, 2021.

You may submit once per issue for each category (creative non-fiction and academic essays). We are not interested in publishing fan fiction or poetry.
Whether from health crisis, family isolation, or governmental-social prejudice, care has always been an invaluable resource in queer communities, whether physical, psychological, or spiritual. This care manifests not only in physical forms, such as providing food and medicine, shelter for queer homeless populations, and access to health care, but also in the ability to connect with new modes of family and to fight in the broader struggle for queer rights and liberation. However, this care can become disrupted due to biases present within the mainstream queer community, such against queer people of color, queer women and gender non-conforming people, and queer people with disabilities.
This call is for our book recommendation section.for the academic blog (ISSN 2660-8839, https://popmec.hypotheses.org) of the PopMeC Association for US Popular Culture Studies.
We aim at recommending books that we find relevant in the realm of the representation of the US, as well as in the related cultural studies. We’d like to share books that we found inspiring, useful, and engaging, delving into culturally relevant topics, popular culture products, public reception, cultural politics, minority/discriminated groups’ representation, collective imaginaries fueled by cinema, music, comics, TV series, public performances, and whatnot.

International Review of Literary Studies-IRLS Vol. 3, Issue 3
LAST DATE: 30 October 2021
ISSN: Online (2709-7021), Print (2709-7013)
International Review of Literary Studies (IRLS) is an International peer-review journal of literary studies that publishes original research articles, review papers, and book reviews, and cutting-edge research informed by Literary and Cultural Theory. Acceptable themes include, but are not limited to, the following:
In the wake of COVID, some workers have been deemed essential, forced to put their lives at risk to keep the market moving or care for those with the means to stay off the frontlines. While these jobs may be crucial, those who perform them are frequently treated as exchangeable.Yet as workers have become interchangeable, a fantastical contrast has emerged in the form of the non-fungible token (NFT): at the same time that stable employment and livable wages have been cut in the interest of profit, digital creations become irreplaceable tokens of payment. The catastrophic impact of the pandemic shows which systems of exchange are malleable or fluid and which remain brittle or stagnant.

NeMLA Annual Convention - Baltimore, MD - 10-13 March, 2022
How does one resist the systems of subjugation that prey on the marginalized and seek to dissolve and consume them within this white supremacist capitalist imperialist patriarchy? While for some resistance takes the form of confrontation and battle, for Black feminist thinkers like bell hooks and Audre Lorde, resistance comes in the form of the practice of love. It is in the embrace of the erotic, of initiating the quest of mutual self-fulfillment, in seeking value in the relationships we have with each other, that we resist. In other words, for hooks and Lorde, we resist through care.
