deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, August 31, 2024

Fraught with moral, religious, racial, sexual, and transgressive configurations, the body is a potent site for reflective practices within popular culture. The self-reflexive matrix of popular culture’s representations of human body functions as a site for materializing possibilities of varying forms of living. As a cultural sign, body features in both normative and non-normative debates on identity, selfhood, social relations, power, institutional surveillance and regulation. The practice of its representations, on the other hand, traditionally enables a culture of shared meaning-making which shapes how an individual perceives, thinks, feels, and acts amidst the production and circulation of discourses.

2027 would mark 80 years of the Partition of the Indian subcontinent of 1947. For South Asia, independence from over two centuries of British rule in 1947 was accompanied by a violent and bloody partition - a territorial division of two provinces of British India, Punjab and Bengal  - on the basis of religious majority, which led to a million people dead in bloody communal riots and fifteen million people uprooted and displaced across the newly-formed borders.

Maryse Condé’s œuvre has tremendously impacted our understanding of the French Caribbean and Africa, but also of postcolonial France and the Americas as a whole. In a sense, she is truly « a writer for our times, » as the title of a recent tribute in Paris suggested. 

All That Remains Is Madness: An Examination of the Tragic Outcome for Women in A24 Films

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2024

Summary: MidsommarSaint MaudFalse PositiveHereditaryThe Hole in the GroundThe Witch, etc. All of these A24 horror films feature women in crisis. Most are struggling with their mental health, most are betrayed by their loved ones, most are literally or emotionally isolated, and most are victims of an uncaring world. In all cases, the films end with the physical or figurative destruction of woman. She is insane, incinerated, beheaded, broken, forever haunted ... The question remains, should viewers accept these endings? Should they be viewed exploitative or unnecessarily shocking? Or is there room to view these as a warning?

Our dependence on the past’s valuation of its own cultural products has become increasingly obvious in our ongoing interests in reshaping the canon and in decentering our humanities’  disciplines.  Certainly, the availability of digitized primary-source materials increases the range in newly available, even newly discovered texts.  However, our reliance on the digitized brings with it an obvious quandary as it can narrow the scope and constrain investigation of other exciting sources crucial to our scholarship but not deemed worthy of archiving.  They might be fragile, incomplete, or ill-preserved; they might be undocumented and uncatalogued.
