Call for Book Reviews on Free Speech and Censorship

Modern Language Studies: The Journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 30, 2021

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the winter 2021-2022 issue. In recent years, the temperature has risen around free speech debates, and books on censorship and free speech come out with such frequency that it is hard to keep abreast of the new scholarship. I am interested in receiving reviews and review essays on academic books published in the last several years that are in some way related to free speech. The books to be reviewed can center on any historical, geographical, or disciplinary context, and the reviews and review essays can be written from (almost) any theoretical perspective.

Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.

2020 marked the 100th anniversary of “modernism’s lost masterpiece,” Hope Mirrlees’s Paris: A Poem. Published by Hogarth Press in the spring of 1920, and typeset by Virginia Woolf, this ground-breaking long poem maps the range of continental avant-garde aesthetics of the 1910s even as it both engages and anticipates the mythical methods and epic conventions of James Joyce, Ezra Pound, and T.S. Eliot.

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

During the pandemic, creative writing classes, like most of academia, moved online. Traditional creative-writing pedagogies and practices were forced to reinvent themselves on Zoom. This emergency process provided opportunities for re-examination, experimentation, and growth. This panel invites practitioners of creative writing and its pedagogies to explore ways that creative writing instruction and praxis were altered by the pandemic.

Possible questions to consider:

· What changes to teaching and writing did you experience during the pandemic?

· How did the pandemic change perspectives on creative writing and creative writing instruction?

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel asks creative writers to speculate on their own work or that of others and envision the future of the novel. The panel proposes to address the following questions:

· What technologies (such as the internet, videogaming, virtual reality, or artificial intelligence) might shape the form of the novel of the future?

· How might the novel be impacted by future trends and technologies in publishing and the literary marketplace?

· How might the novel form be re-envisioned?

· How do other media, such as videogames, use narrative in novelistic modalities?

The panel invites a wide range of interpretations of this topic and encourages creative work

The sudden outbreak of a pandemic makes us revisit what “normal” is comprised of. We saw this recently and now “new normal” has become integral part of our conversations.

The taste of festivals forms a significant part of our life, and many festivals are associated with religion, remembrance, and prayer. Food during the religious holiday of Christmas can either make or break the holiday spirit; for example, the memory of having the best turkey, the best mince pies, and sitting around the Christmas tree warms many a heart. Carnival, another religious festival that is also a cultural event, has its own traditions regarding festival food.

In the world of teen drama (or YA drama, as some prefer), there are a number of ways to represent adolescence and its attendant horrors, and we’ve seen a great deal of fantasy-based approaches; beginning with Buffy, some establish that high school is actual hell. But few series come close to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s devotion to that idea. The Netflix series (2018-20), based on the Archie Comics spin-off and featuring a much darker version of Sabrina Spellman, may be difficult for audiences to reconcile with ABC’s Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the previous adaptation. While one is a teen sitcom in which Sabrina’s powers get her into wacky situations, and she is supported by a talking Salem the cat, the other might feel closer to The Craft.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has forced all of us to rethink the ways in which we teach and study literature and the arts. It has also forced us to reconsider the place of the arts during periods of extreme physical and social crisis. Our current pandemic is also a unique occasion to reconsider literature and the arts in previous historical and cultural dispensations. For instance, the flourishing of English drama during the early modern period coincided with almost yearly visitations of the plague, while the Spanish Flu of the early twentieth century proved an important inspiration for many artists—especially the Dadaist movement.

In 2003 Peter Lang published The Emperor’s Old Groove: Decolonizing Disney’s Magic Kingdom, edited by Brenda Ayres. In this collection of 14 essays, the contributors argue that as of 2002, Disney’s film animation has continued to be a surreptitious colonizing force that manipulates the psychological, cultural, and political identities of consumers, predominantly children. Since then, Walt Disney Animation Studios and its subsidiaries, affiliates, and distributing companies have produced 63 additional film animations. Have they altered their portrayal of multiculturalism and SGM (Sexual and Gender Minorities) to be more inclusive and  normative? Coeditors Brenda Ayres and Sarah E.

Engaging the Audience: From Antiquity to the Renaissance

 

In The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (1959), Erving Goffman likens social interaction to theatre, describing “performance” as “all the activity of an individual which occurs during a period marked by his continuous presence before a particular set of observers and which has some influence on the observers.” The individual coming into contact with other people is like an actor on stage, who will employ available theatrical devices in order to manage the impression made on the audience.
