Call for Contributions: Special issue on Mark Z. Danielewski’s The Familiar

updated: 
Monday, September 28, 2020 - 2:04pm
Orbit: A Journal of American Literature
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 30, 2020

Mark Z. Danielewski’s pentalogy The Familiar, published between 2015 and 2017, is likely the most audacious project in American fiction in the twenty-first century so far. Announced as a set that would eventually encompass 27 novels, the five novels published as the first “season” of the series as a whole have done what readers have come to expect of Danielewski’s work: they once more pushed the limits of what a novel is and can be.

Katie Harling-Lee / Durham University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 11, 2020

Description: 

This session will analyze representations of armed conflict in contemporary media, exploring how these representations might influence the popular understanding of global and civil conflict and the way that these representations of conflict might be read as an attempt to change (or maintain) a certain world. We welcome a broad range of papers, particularly aiming for a global perspective on the ethical debate of representing armed conflict in stylized media, as we interrogate how these representations might affect popular imaginations of conflict and how we as researchers might form an analytical approach to representations of conflict.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 11, 2020

This panel - for NeMLA's 2021 Convention - explores past and current South Asian cinema's use of Shakespearean drama to respond to three questions. First, to what extent are South Asian filmmakers concerned with reenacting the Western dramatic canon? Second, at what point and why do South Asian filmmakers use Shakespeare as a springboard to explore problems and values that are only tangentially Shakespeare's? Third, what are these problems and values and how to they resonate for today’s global, wired audience?

Haunted Nature: The Cultural Work of Haunting

Sladja Blazan
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 1, 2020

We are looking for 2 more articles for a collection of essays on "Haunted Nature", preferably from an indigenous perspective but other topics are welcome as well. The collection is a study of human entanglements with nature as seen through the mode of haunting. Together, the essays demonstrate how haunting and being haunted can elucidate our troubled relationships with our natural environments. Seen as an interruption of the present by the past, hauntings address contemporary anxieties concerning human involvement in the transformation of natural environments and their ecosystems, and our complicity in their collapse.

Interaction occurs when interlocutors exchange messages through spoken and written language (Nik, 2010; Ziglari, 2008). It has been conceptually and operationally categorized from different frameworks: as conversational and instructional exchanges, as computer-mediated communication, and through social connections. Following sociocultural theory (SCT), interaction is the key to success in language learning, which is viewed as a process of social interaction (Vygotsky, 1978).
