James Joyce’s Ulysses first appeared in its entirety on February 2, 2022, on the occasion of his fortieth birthday. In this its centenary, as we naturally celebrate its remarkable literary achievement, we just as naturally take note, given the state of the world a hundred years on, of the circumstances of its composition and earlier appearance.

Routledge Companion to Ecopoetics call for abstracts

updated:

Orchid Tierney
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, July 31, 2022

The Routledge Companion to Ecopoetics offers comprehensive coverage of the vital and growing movement of ecopoetics. We understand the term ecopoetics as including innovative approaches to the entanglement of individuals, cultures, and languages with the natural systems that permeate and envelop them. We begin with the assumption that ecopoetics is not a genre such as ecopoetry or nature poetry, but rather a dynamic field of inquiry and a laboratory for new ways of knowing. The collection will be global in scope, with contributors drawn from a wide range of nations, ethnicities, and gender identities.

The Hidden Queer: Queer Approaches to Disney's Fairy Tale Films

updated: 
Thursday, July 14, 2022 - 10:58am
Brittany Eldridge
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

This edited collection would focus on the application of queer theory and queer approaches to Disney films that are infamous for queerbaiting, queer coding, and queer pandering, as well as the parodies of Disney films that stem from this. 

Previous works such as Kay Turner and Pauline Greenhill’s The Transgressive Tales (2012) looks into the queer retellings of the Brothers Grimms' edited collection of tales. This collection seeks to go beyond the Brothers Grimm and showcase queer approaches to the Disney fairy tale. With the 'Don't Say Gay' Bill and the apathetic response, it is time to shed light on this academic area and the link between Disney fairy tale films and the queer community.

[Updated] “Transdisciplinarity @ HBCUs: (Re)Writing Black Futures Beyond the Margin”

updated: 
Tuesday, July 12, 2022 - 8:51pm
Special Issue of the Journal of Multimodal Rhetorics (JMOR)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, August 15, 2022

In “Where Would We Be? Legacies, Roll Calls, and the Teaching of Writing in HBCUs (2021),” Beverly Moss asserts that “Black rhetorical excellence has thrived at HBCUs. Pedagogical and scholarly creativity in the teaching of writing has excelled” (146). However, it is her critical question that anchors this proposal: “where would we, in composition studies, be without writing and rhetoric faculty who have taught or currently teach at HBCUs and/or scholars in the field who are alumni of HBCUs?” (145). The creation of the HBCU Symposium on Rhetoric and Composition in 2016 helped to bring some of these contributions from the margins into the center of conversations about the teaching of writing that happens on HBCU campuses across the country.

Research Collaboration with Our Undergraduates: A Mutual Reward

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Collaborative research between faculty and their undergraduates is not a new practice, and the pedagogy of collaborative projects has attracted, perhaps more recently, considerable scholarly attention. This roundtable examines the richness in the covenant instructors and their undergraduate research assistants enter when they embark on a scholarly project independent of a course’s requirements and outside the semester’s classroom. Given our undergraduates’ remarkable fortitude, resilient energy, digital literacy, and technological savvy, our work as scholars in our specific disciplines reaps enormous benefit when we harness our students’ creative abilities.

Cultures of Popularity: Understanding Popular Culture in India

updated: 
Sunday, July 10, 2022 - 1:07am
Journal of Comparative Literature and Aesthetics
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2022

Popular culture has been a rising area of interest in India, with dedicated departments of Game Studies, Media Studies, Visual arts and culture and many more. In the contemporary context, where the world has been miniaturised into the palm of our hands, with information available at the tip of our fingers, it becomes more important to question how we can include popular culture into the larger domain of academia, both in Humanities and in the Social Sciences. The Popular Culture Association, established in the USA in 1971, has taken the study and research in this domain to new heights.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

Over 83% of the current global population is estimated to have a smartphone today, and the number is rising rapidly. A lion's share of these phones are used and produced in the Global South. Small, portable, and relatively cheap, the software and hardware of the phones are altering the manner in which individuals in the Global South communicate, and even the languages in which they communicate. An instrument vital to teaching and communication, the production of this tool is nevertheless tied to e-waste generation, child labor in the mining and assembly processes, and numerous other unsustainable and exploitative processes.

The Dramatic I/Eye: Reflections on Voice and Form in Contemporary Poetry

Thursday, September 1, 2022

The West Chester University Poetry Center is pleased to announce this Call for Papers and Poems for our virtual poetry and pedagogy conference,The Dramatic I/Eye: Reflections on Voice and Form in Contemporary Poetry, to be held November 11-12, 2022. Early Twentieth Century African American poet Sterling Brown once said, “every I is a dramatic I.” How many times must we remind our students (and ourselves) not to confuse the speaker with the poet when they are analyzing poetry? How many times do we anticipate that a poet’s work will give voice to a particular subject position, identity,  experience, or way of seeing the world simply because we’ve read their bio sketch? What happens when the poet or the speaker pushes the bounds of our expectations?
