Cyberfeminism is a fusion of the term 'cyber', denoting the act of steering, governing, and controlling, and 'feminism', which represents an activist movement dedicated to women's liberation and justice at various levels - local, national, and international. Cyber-feminism aims to bridge the gap between the historical and philosophical traditions of feminism and contemporary feminist initiatives both online and offline. These initiatives focus on the lived experiences and realities of women from diverse backgrounds, including different ages, races, and socioeconomic statuses.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association 2024 Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 16, 2024

This allied session on work in multi-ethnic literature of the United States (co-sponsored by MELUS) invites papers that explore work as a component of identity formation, especially as it intersects with gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, cultural identity, and citizenship. In the spirit of Moishe Postone’s antiproductivist Marxism, this panel is particularly interested in papers that present a “critique of labor in capitalism” rather than a “critique of capitalism from the standpoint of labor.” While papers that engage with work broadly from the traditional Marxist position are welcome, we are particularly excited about scholarship that theorizes work itself.

Street literature, also known as urban literature, refers to a genre of writing that primarily focuses on the experiences and narratives of individuals from marginalized communities, particularly in urban areas. Street Lit often explores the struggles, triumphs, and complexities of life in poor neighborhoods, shedding light on themes such as crime, violence, poverty, and the pursuit of success. Street literature encompasses various forms of written expression, including novels, short stories, poetry, and non-fiction accounts.

4th AISNA Graduates Conference: “What is an American?” (1782-2024) Narratives and Counternarratives of an Imagined Nation

In a period of tumultuous changes like the ones brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the rise of far-right governments, racism, and international tensions caused by the war in Ukraine and Gaza, a great reckoning is happening in the Western cultural context, especially with regard to the Atlantic and Transatlantic world. No nation has undergone more rapid and sometimes contradictory transformations than the US, showing tensions between its foundational narratives and counternarratives rising from its too often neglected socio-cultural realities. Culturally embedded American ideals have always emphasized a single unifying narrative capable of synthesizing the plurality of voices on US soil.

Russell Crowe: His Films and Pop Cultural Impact

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 25, 2024

Russell Crowe’s talents were globally recognized in the early 2000s after he appeared in a slate of well-received films – L.A. Confidential, Gladiator, and A Beautiful Mind, among others – that earned him critical acclaim. Nevertheless, in the years following these productions, he has continued to be a part of numerous projects with international and creative appeal. Alongside his films are his associations with Roman soccer teams – established in Spera’s (2023) chapter in my recent volume on Gladiator (https://vernonpress.com/book/1213) – his social media presence, and his musical performances.

Contagions and Non-Human Animals: (Re)Viewing Disregarded Species in Real and Imagined Pandemics

The impact of the pandemic and the threat that it poses to future human experiences has been well-documented. However, now that non-human animals are possible carriers and becoming infected, their experiences, while often overlooked, are nevertheless integrated into the worldwide pandemic.

Thus, this collection seeks to balance essays about non-human animals during real-world pandemics, such as the COVID-19 one, with those of their experiences during literary or cinematic ones. The scope of this call for papers is broad and can include topics such as:

--Animals as victims of contagions

Session Title: The Concept of Visual Translation, Johanna Drucker, Chair 

 

Abstract: The translation of texts is a familiar, if fraught, act that is the subject of considerable thoughtful examination. But is there an equivalent for visual works? This panel looks at examples of cross-cultural or temporal reworkings of images to challenge certain assumptions about self-evident nature of images and even of vision itself.
