Recent scientific discoveries in climatology, animal cognition and microbiology have radically altered our conceptions of ourselves and the environment we live in, both on micro and macroscales. Zooming in on the human microbiome and out to the planetary ecosystem, or even further into infinite cosmic spaces, the sciences are revealing strange dynamics of human-nonhuman interconnectedness, doing away with the established anthropocentrism and the idea of human exceptionalism.

Beyond “An Institution Adrift”: The Third Current of Writing at CUNY in the 21st Century
Eds. Todd Craig (Medgar Evers College), Neil Meyer (LaGuardia Community College), Amy J. Wan (Queens College)
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention in Philadelphia, 11-14 March 2021. Abstracts for 15-20 minute papers that consider multiple temporalities within or across works of literature, criticism, or other forms of media, discourse, or performance, such as temporalities that are varied, conflicting, competing, haphazard, (re)constructed, broken, or accidental. How do temporal modes or frameworks--or their enforcement, or their lack, or resistance to them--reflect differences of intention, ideology, social or natural order, technology, ontology, or ethics? In what ways are temporalities variously material, subjective, human, organic, or inhuman?

Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on the theme: Sexual Identities and Assault in Children’s and Adolescent Literature and Culture for an edited collection Voices From the Wreckage: YA Voices in the #MeToo Movement edited by Kimberly Greenfield Karshner (Lorain County Community College).
This panel will explore the many forms of adaptation in Hispanic cultures, offering a comparative dialogue on the multiform products and processes of adaptation within Spain and Spanish America. We encourage contributors to employ interdisciplinary tools and theoretical perspectives that open new conversations on the porousness of cultural edges and the artifacts that sustain and deny them. We welcome paper proposals on topics including studies of texts, genres, contact zones, and analyses of adaptation itself, among others.
This roundtable will feature 5-minute papers/presentations that explore best practices for including community engagement within Humanities courses. Experiments with critical pedagogies and research programs, as well as creative and thoughtful engagements with regional and local communities, are especially welcome. The roundtable format features brief formal or informal presentations, leaving plenty of time for interaction and discussion between, and among, participants and audience members.
By June 26, please send a 200-word presentation abstract, a 1-page CV and A/V requests to Elisabeth Austin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This is the final Call for Papers for the edited book ‘Capture Japan: Visual Culture and the Global Imagination from 1952 to the Present’. The book analyses, deconstructs and challenges representations of Japan in a variety of different visual media such as cinema, documentary film, photography, visual art and computer games. The book is now under contract with Bloomsbury and due to the recent withdrawal of a contributor, we are now looking for a replacement chapter. We are particularly keen to hear from potential contributions on anime, manga, animation or comics which are topics that are currently underrepresented in the book.
Vernon Press invites chapters for an edited volume on the spaces within Renaissance anatomy theatre.
The collection asks, how did actions and conversations taking place within a Renaissance/Early Modern anatomy theatre make their way into European society? How did public dissection and anatomical research influence the arts, government, or society? This collection examines the spaces of intersections within the anatomy theatre, the aspects of gender present in anatomical discourse and images, and a shared interest in the physical body and its parts.

In his seminal essay “Technologies of the Self” (1988), Michel Foucault referred to strategies that “permit individuals to effect by their own means or with the help of others a certain number of operations on their own bodies and souls, thoughts, conduct, and way of being, so as to transform themselves in order to attain a certain state of happiness, purity, wisdom, perfection, or immortality.”

"Cultures of Collectivity"
The Hero is Female Katniss Everdeen’s hand signal is now used at real-world rallies, and Princess Leia is the face of the real-world resistance movement. More than ever fictional female protagonists are symbols of hope and strength during these turbulent times, but power can take many forms and often these characters can take nontraditional paths. This panel will focus on female protagonists in fiction and film, with an emphasis on genre narratives, as we examine the ways in which women of all ages gain revelations and empowerment.
This panel explores forms of dissent adopted by twentieth-century transatlantic avant-gardes as a means of challenging traditional genres and social codes. Since the inception of European experimentalism during the first decades of the twentieth century, a series of art movements engaged in radical production that questioned the established state of affairs. From the Cubist adoption of multiple viewpoints, through the Futurist celebration of technology and speed, the Expressionist distortion of form, to the Dadaist sense of provocation and the irrational juxtaposition of images in Surrealism, avant-garde art and literature has set precedents on an international level of exchanges.

Over forty years have passed since Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar wrote The Madwomen in the Attic: The Woman Writer and the Nineteenth Century Literary Imagination, their quintessential work of feminist literary criticism. Their work, and its title, struck a contentious chord by making a heavy-handed literary reference to Bertha Mason, the first wife of Mr. Rochester, who is kept in the attic and described in bestial terms in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. Gilbert and Gubar’s attempt to place the “madwoman in the attic” at the forefront or center of literary conversation is a gesture that gave agency to the phrase, encouraged meaning-making around it, and strove to keep madwomen alive as a critical subject.
