I was, besides, endued with a figure hideously deformed and loathsome; I was not even of the same nature as man. I was more agile than they and could subsist upon coarser diet; I bore the extremes of heat and cold with less injury to my frame; my stature far exceeded theirs. When I looked around I saw and heard of none like me. Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?” - Frankenstein, Mary Shelley

2024 Biannual Conference

June 23-26, 2024

Courtyard by Marriot Beachfront | Gulfport, Mississippi

There is a need to reconceptualize queer Souths in the face of the challenges and revocation of rights that the community has faced in the last seven years. While there is certainly an existing body of scholarship on queer Souths, those works tend to focus on specific sites or individuals rather than examining the activism and art that connect to build a genealogy of queer Souths.

This panel welcomes proposals that include but are not limited to:

Time, as a mode of configuring the social, has long been of scholarly concern— such as Durkheim (1912)’s illustration of how regular rhythmic collective gathering provokes the idea of the social in individuals or, more recently, Elizabeth Freeman’s (2019) illustration of how senses of time are instrumental to becoming social in a mode she calls hypersociability, a way of imagining queerness not as antirelational, but as hypersocial.

We're reloading our call for short articles on color!

A dark urban setting scattered with dots of light. Yellow gas flames shoot up against a glowing red horizon, creating an almost hellish feel. Flying cars pierce the atmosphere, revealing the orange smog haze that reappears in urban sequences throughout the movie. As the camera moves closer to futuristic, monumental buildings, cold white beams of light transition to interiors dominated by blue hues. Sequences in the Tyrell Corporation are marked by cool tones as opposed to Deckard’s warm-toned private spaces. How would we feel and think about a cult film like Blade Runner (1982) if cinematographic choices about color had been made differently?

There have been several recent discussions on decolonisation, diversity, and inclusion in creative writing pedagogy and publishing, following the Black Lives Matter movement, #publishingpaidme on Twitter on racial disparities in pay, and reports such as ‘Rethinking Diversity’. But have these discussions led to meaningful changes in academia and publishing?

The ‘Rethinking Diversity’ report (2020) stated that publishers have a narrow understanding of their core reader, whom they describe as ‘a white, middle-class older woman sardonically referred to as Susan’, likely uninterested in books by writers of colour.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Emotions and the Arts

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 29, 2024

Scholars across disciplines have long contended with the generative potentials and the deficiencies of affect and emotions like sorrow, melancholy, compassion, grief, sympathy, and happiness. Judith Butler has shown how feelings of loss and acts of mourning are political acts of subjectivity, of rendering a life grievable or forgotten. Sara Ahmed speaks about the promise of happiness that obscures unhappy hierarchies in the world around us, and calls for a killjoy politics. Lauren Berlant tells us that optimism is not just an emotion, but a cruel relation we have with our socio-economic forces.
