Digital platforms’ ubiquity and pervasive nature have ignited discussions around the boundaries between what is considered private and what is rendered public. Cohen’s (2012) exploration of privacy in the digital age highlights how technological advancements challenge the conventional norms we attribute to personal space and information. Privacy also seems to be a buzzword of any privately deployed enterprise built upon collecting and distributing personal information (Strauß & Nentwich, 2013). While traditional conceptualisations of privacy and its value consider personal information as something to protect or own while focusing on how information is handled, recent accounts take ontological and contextual perspectives (Solove, 2008; Marmor, 2015).

Faculty of Languages and Literature (FoLL), University of Central Punjab (UCP), Lahore, Pakistan is organizing a Two-day International Conference on Language, Literature, and Linguistics on the theme of Erasure, Resistance, and Innovation on June 6 - 7, 2024,(Online and In-person).  Political erasure of unwanted individuals, communities, cultures, identities, languages, and knowledge through forced and orchestrated collective amnesia has been endemic in human history. Power has always openly and surreptitiously been involved in deciding whose knowledge matters. Which language and meaning matter to be sensible? Who matters as a human? Whose sufferings matter as grievable?

     “Paper or plastic?” Sustainably sourced or affordably manufactured? Organic or GMO? Every day, consumers are faced with small decisions marketed to make a big impact. ​​Choosing either paper or plastic puts the onus onto the shoulders of the customer rather than acknowledging that regardless of whether or not you leave the store with a paper bag, it’s the planned obsolescence of what’s inside the bag that’s left unaddressed. Opting out of paper billing feels great, until you realize that the WiFi bill’s gone up and an electric bill leaves you contemplating if your LED bulbs are a sustainability placebo.

I invite papers that explore medieval conceptions of masculinity, what the "medieval masculine" could mean, how it is embodied, and whether medieval masculinity can address the abundantly visible yet often dismissed "masculinity crisis" today. Questions we might ask:

The proposed book looks for chapters exploring the contemporary Pulitzer Prize winning American women-authored plays and their engagement with post-millennial cultural dynamics. This volume / book wants to showcase women playwrights’ responses to and shaping the cultural landscape of American society of the 21st century. By examining themes, characters, narratives, and dramatic techniques, the chapters want to address a nuanced understanding of how American women drama reflects and challenges the complexities of changing times of the society.

Chapters proposals invited on the following plays and themes:

InVisible Culture: CFP 38: Ecologies of Excess

Sunday, March 3, 2024 - 9:27pm
Invisible Culture: A Journal for Visual Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 15, 2024

To theorize ecology is necessarily to contend with excess, whether that be in the form of unceasing material production or in the forms of social and theoretical remainders. In order to grapple with the excess of agencies at work in the more-than-human world, contemporary theories of ecology often appeal to tropes of darkness, “chthonic ones,” monsters, and ghosts (Morton, 2016; Haraway, 2016; Tsing, Swanson, Gan, and Bubandt, 2017). By betraying a sense of wonder, these tropes attest to our phenomenological, affective, and discursive bewilderment in the face of what is unknowable and seek to account for that excess by distributing agency beyond the epistemological frameworks of “the human.”

Dismantling FX's Atlanta

The intention of this book is to connect scholars, readers, and fans of FX’s Atlanta from inside and outside of academia. Between 2016 and 2023, Atlanta was a zeitgeist that inspired think pieces and water cooler conversations. As one example of its complexity, Atlanta often features re-imagined but true local news events that were so outrageous that audiences unaware of the original stories assumed they were fiction. We hope our book project bridges the gap between “everybody already knows this” to “why or how do we know this”? Or even more, “why don’t you know this?” There is a cultural knowledge about Atlanta that sings in the FX show – from lemon-pepper-wet wings to the parking madness of Atlantic Station –  that screams IYKYK.

Tracing its roots to a long history of philosophical discourse, identity stands as one of the most intricate and ubiquitous concepts within the large debates of human and social sciences. It is taken for granted in everyday life and assumed to be an all-inclusive determinant of empirical and virtual entities; yet, obscure when it comes to marking out its essence as a referential determinant and delineating the shaping politics of its concretizations. The ambiguity and paradox of identity stem from the contradictory dimensions it encompasses, entailing at the same time a sense of similitude yet difference, uniqueness yet commonness, and independence yet reliance.

Untimely Time: On History’s Instrumental Narratives

English Language Notes
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 1, 2024

History is frequently at the heart of how people view themselves and others in modern culture. The construction of the self in political, social, religious, and other spheres often exhibits an “instrumental” use of history in Nietzsche’s terms (a category also taken up by others, notably Foucault, Trouillot, and, more recently, implicitly in Priya Satia in Time’s Monster). The past is not simply a narrative of meaning connecting causality, leading from former times to the present, but it is also a means of crafting and molding a particular moment. In other words, the present is in the past. Perceptions of history are finding footing in modern causes and are proving to be instrumental for predetermined ends.

Going to the Movies with C.S. Lewis, Call for Chapters

An edited collection tentatively titled “Going to the Movies with C.S. Lewis” is seeking chapter submissions. The book is expected to be published through Cambridge Scholars Publishing.  

Having been born many years after C.S. Lewis died I of course never had the opportunity to watch a movie with the man. However, over the years I feel, as many others probably feel as well, like Lewis accompanies me as I watch movies, read books, attend church services, and make other daily pursuits. Lewis’ works shape my thinking on many theological, educational, and cultural matters like few other authors’ works do.
