Seen/Unseen: American Mythos of Madness and Consequences of Stigma

updated: 
Tuesday, June 11, 2024 - 3:26pm
Kelley Walker/ South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 31, 2024

Even today in the age of political correctness and amidst cancel culture censures, people with mental disorders are one of the few social groups still to be consistently misrepresented, ostracized, and demeaned. The social consequences of stigmatization should be studied through autobiographical narrative acts to reveal what it means to live with mental illness in America. By utilizing everyday language and literary tropes, mental illness life narratives humanize portrayals of mental disorder; by doing so, they appeal to the sympathies of broader audiences than medical narratives, such as case studies or examples in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

Wednesday, June 5, 2024 - 2:52pm
Deanna P. Koretsky, Spelman College
deadline for submissions:

Essays are invited for an edited volume exploring the role that race and racism play in the narrative worlds of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Legacies, as well as the real world that consumes them. This volume explores how race intersects with other identity categories (gender, sexuality, disability, class, etc.) in the television and book series; how it structures power and agency in the storyworlds and behind the scenes; how it permeates the fan cultures associated with the franchise; and how ongoing fascination with the franchise reflects the tumultuous years of the Obama and Trump presidencies, the coronavirus pandemic, the racial uprisings of 2020, and beyond.
