"Grey is flexible, malleable; it can be pushed and pulled in different directions, worked and reworked into new, unanticipated materiality and meaning. Grey is not fixed: it both reflects and absorbs light, and it extends the spectrum between black and white, between the extremes of all other colors. Grey has the capacity to move its viewer beyond the materiality of paint. [...] Grey is the color that best describes this perspective on the twentieth century, the metals in which it is built, the factories in which it is produced, the cities in which it is lived" (Guerin, 2018, 7-8).

In the last few decades, scholars in the Humanities have found it necessary to examine the fundamental underpinnings upon which their disciplines are built. One of the primary questions that animated this re-examination has been regarding the very terms of our engagement with countries and communities that inhabit radically  different  social  and moral life-worlds, living as they do outside the orbit of European Enlightenment values that still regulate both organization and practice within and outside the academy, across the world.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 6, 2024

We would like to invite you to submit proposals for articles for thematic issues "Values – axiology – of culture".

The dynamic reality of the second decade of the 21st century makes us think of the surrounding world as a sphere of constant change, full of violent events, breaking ties with what until recently seemed traditional and unchangeable. It also provokes reflection on how the sense of axiological crisis has been dealt with over the centuries, to what extent the methods of overcoming this crisis developed at that time have opened up new perspectives for the development of culture, literature and language, to what degree they have turned out to be a trap, and finally to what extent they are used in contemporary creative activities.

Pacifism - Special Issue and Book - Call for Abstracts

updated: 
Monday, May 13, 2024 - 1:32pm
Angelaki: journal of the theoretical humanities (Routledge)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 31, 2024

Edited by John Kinsella and Nicholas Birns

Abstract of c. 500 words by the end of May 2024. For publication April 2025. See below for full details.

The issue is concerned with pacifism as both a mode of conceptualising and also interacting with the world. Non-violence is a characteristic of various spiritual and secular modes of both maintaining peace and also enacting conflict resolution, and this issue will have a strong focus on these agencies, but further, pacifism as a system of perceiving and interacting with the world, as a ‘complete’ philosophy will be considered.

Call for Chapters – Advanced Unicorn Theory

updated: 
Monday, May 13, 2024 - 1:32pm
Alicia Anderson
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 1, 2024

Advanced Unicorn Theory is an edited, peer-reviewed volume of interdisciplinary essays about the meaning of the modern image of the unicorn. Edited by Alicia King Anderson, Ph.D. in Mythological Studies and Depth Psychology, and contracted to be published by McFarland Press.

While scholarship about unicorns tends to stick with the history and art history around the image, the cultural meaning of the unicorn has moved on, largely outside of the notice of academia. Unicorns are perhaps more present now than they have been since the early 1980s in toy aisles, books, and television. What is it about the symbol of the unicorn that speaks to a modern mind?

Deadline Extended: Pornographic Adaptations and Translations

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 15, 2024

In keeping with PAMLA's conference theme of "Translation in Action," this session invites papers that examine questions of translation and adaptation relevant to pornographic media, including but not limited to film and video, writing, and performance. I welcome papers covering any relevant period, topic, and method, from textual analysis to cultural histories to studies of pornographic production and consumption. Pornography provides an exemplary terrain on which to engage questions of adaptation as the eagerness of pornographers to adapt both low and high cultural works, from Twinklight (2010) to Spank Me, Mr. Darcy (2013), remains a reliable source of public fascination, humor, and outrage.

CFP: “Poetry and the Gothic” Edited Volume Call for Papers

Poetry has been an integral part of the Gothic mode since its inception. However, the connection between poetry and the Gothic seems a less explored area of critical inquiry, in comparison to fiction. While the Graveyard Poets and other Anglophone poetry movements are already considered foundational to the Gothic mode, our edited collection seeks to broaden the scope of what can be conceived of as “Gothic poetry” or poetry inspired by the Gothic.
