This panel seeks to examine historical and contemporary iterations of feminist and queer coalition building, focusing on the capacities and frailties of political work to build community and power across time and space. Topics of interest include social movement memory and archives as political tools, intersections of academic and activist feminisms and queer politics, the incorporation and institutionalization of grassroots politics, and neocolonial discourses and practices within American feminist and queer projects globally. Drawing on the conference theme, the panel invites papers which examine grounded knowledge production from a variety of perspectives.

International Conference – Reimagining Africa: Prospects and Opportunities
My forthcoming collection, Imperial Debt: Colonial Theft, Postcolonial Reparations, is in contract with Liverpool UP and due out before the end of 2024.
I have lost a chapter that was important to the collection -- on Brazil, race, and reparations -- and I'd like to replace this chapter with one that is equally critical and politically rich. The replacement chapter does not need to be on Brazil, but it does need to fall clearly within the umbrella argument /rubric of the book (as detailed below).

Deadlines | Essays: May 1, 2024
What is the Asian Century? Are we living in it? Do its recent invocations—by writers and readers, politicians and pundits, journalists and academics—mark a return to earlier eras of relative Asian centrality on the world stage or announce a future we have yet to inhabit? Is it a paranoid, U.S.-centered discourse of Western decline or a triumphant announcement of Asian economic-semiotic arrival? Is the Asian Century an aspiration or a threat—and to whom?
Fall 2024 Issue of Critical Humanities examines narrative innovations and new scholarly approaches in representations of contemporary and/or day-to-day struggles against climate change and extraction. How do narratives from the Global South ― in literature, print, film and media ― understand the impacts of climate change and industrial extraction on minority communities? In what ways do representations of climate change highlight its intersections with colonial, neo-colonial and postcolonial forms of extraction? What are the new and innovative methods for us to theorize responses, struggles, and resistance efforts against the hostile conditions of extraction in the context of climate change?

'THE HUMAN AND THE MACHINE: AI AND THE CHANGING WORLD'
If we are to believe the entertainment media, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is destined to go rogue and take over the world, destroying humanity as we know it. In reality, the growing accessibility of AI is seeing its use normalised and it is becoming a useful tool to improve and alter society. Artificial Intelligence has been an area of research since the 1950s and hinges on machine functions that learn from humans or independently. Despite its long history,

Studies by scholars including Greg Lambert, William Egginton, Omar Calabrese, David Castillo, Helen Hills, Monika Kaup and Lois Parkinson Zamora indicate that the Baroque is more than merely a period in art of and around the 17th century that derives its name from an irregular and odd-shaped pearl and refers to something strange, bizarre, irregular and disproportionate, hence, imperfect. Neobaroque stems from the baroque tradition and accommodates the baroque as a historical period with its complexity and proliferation. It is appropriate for the instances of reproduction and/or transformation of the ideas and the strategies of the Baroque in contemporary culture.
Chapter submissions are invited for an edited collection, Marlowe X Theory.
