The international journal, Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies (HJEAS) solicits papers on “Central and Eastern European Immigration to Canada” for a special issue to be published in 2022.

The special issue will address a broad range of topics related to Central and Eastern European immigration to Canada; therefore, we are looking for essays that examine the topic from a wide range of perspectives, including, but not limited to, migration studies, history, literature, cultural studies, film studies, travel writing studies, etc. There is no chronological limitation in terms of the time of migration and the term Central and Eastern Europe is used in the broadest possible sense, also including the Balkans and Russia.

From the moment the clock struck midnight (or so it seems) on January 1, a climate of uncertainty has loomed over the year 2020: a contentious presidential campaign, the mismanagement of a global pandemic, and widespread civil unrest over egregious acts of racial injustice have thrown the United States into a state of disarray. These incidents, the result of the outgoing administration’s efforts to disrupt and upend traditional governing institutions, have instilled unparalleled levels of uncertainty and distrust in the American public. Nowhere is this more obvious in contemporary American life than recently conducted surveys suggesting public confidence in a COVID-19 vaccine is well under the 70% threshold needed to achieve herd immunity.

We are a lively academic collective interested in investigating the articulation of the numerous and heterogeneous representations which have been constructing images of the US.

We’re also working to foster a stimulating space for early career researchers and postgraduate students in North American studies, thus we’ll warmly welcome their proposals as well.

“Drum Dream Girls and Northern Lights Kids: New Models of Constructing Childhood for Diverse Children” - ChLA Guaranteed Session for MLA 2022

In their chilling study “Listening to Black Women and Girls: Lived Experiences of Adultification Bias,” Jamilia J. Blake and Rebecca Epstein conclude “that adults perceive Black girls as less innocent than white girls as young as 5-9 years old.” While Blake and Epstein centralize Black girlhood, this adultification bias similarly affects Black boys and other children of color. Children of color’s perception as ‘more adult’ than their white peers does not imbue them with any agency or power, rather, it divests them of childhood, at least within childhood’s contemporary definitions. Yet, these contemporary definitions of childhood are grounded in whiteness and white privilege.

Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts

updated: 
Wednesday, January 6, 2021 - 4:31pm
American Academy of Religion, Comparative Studies of Religion
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

"Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts": Sacred texts continue to inspire a diversity of scholarship that seeks to transform the ancient into the contemporary, the remote into the immediate, and the distant into the visceral experience. At the same time, the texts confront a plethora of troubling topics. Reflecting the spirit of comparative studies in religion seriously engaging two or more religious traditions around a common topic and the recent publication of Troubling Topics, Sacred Texts: Readings in Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Qur’an (De Gruyter 2021), this panel focuses attention on how not only sacred texts themselves but their religious inflections function to manage, signify, and negotiate the most troubling of topics.
