The Journal of American Culture -Theme Issue: Generations

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 1, 2021

Generational Studies is growing as an area of research as multiple generations now co-exist in the workforce. Each generational cohort brings with it diverse viewpoints and varied lived experiences—sometimes quite disparate of one another. Therefore, exploring these age cohorts potentially provides an opportunity to discuss and better understand the challenges of creating cohesiveness as well as discovering the interrelatedness of cultural experiences that have the potential to connect generations.

We welcome papers on topics related to America’s generations including: Baby Boomers, Generation Jones, Generation X, Xennials, Millennials (Gen Y), and iGen (Gen Z).

Journal of Science Fiction Special Issue on Young Adult Speculative Fiction

updated: 
Tuesday, June 8, 2021 - 11:18am

Sunday, August 1, 2021

Young adult (YA) speculative fiction routinely engages with many of life’s most important questions: love, death, relationships, the future of the planet, identity, belonging, and our very future as human beings. Whether styled after the classical bildungsroman or otherwise, coming of age narratives in the speculative genre encourage readers to challenge existing power structures and advocate self-expression and self-confidence. They also return agency to those often divested of power by the institutional and social structures that restrict freedoms based on age, and recenter the adolescent as a critical social figure.

The Idea of the Shakespearean Actor 

An edited collection

Eds. Sally Barnden, Emer McHugh, and Miranda Fay Thomas 

 

 

 

What comes to mind when we think about the Shakespearean actor, or Shakespearean acting? What do actors past, present, and future consider ‘Shakespearean acting’ to be? Is the idea of the Shakespearean actor helpful, or does it limit and restrict the notion of what Shakespearean performance can be? 

 

NeMLA 2022 Panel: Embodying Horror

Panel: Embodying Horror

Film theorist Linda Williams has identified horror as one of the “body genres” - genres of film characterized by their effect on the body. The language that we use to talk about these films is embedded in our embodied experiences of them: they are spine-tingling, bone-chilling, full of jump scares. Over the last few years, we’ve seen an increase in the number of socially conscious horror films that foreground the body and intersectional embodied identities. In these films, bodies matter; when we watch them, we are invited to interrogate our own embodied response, as well as the bodies on the screen and those behind the camera.

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.

[Extended deadline] Call for Papers: Video Games at the Intersection of Postcolonialism, Postcommunism, and Globalisation, 19/09/2021

Thursday, July 15, 2021

In the past decades, video games have established themselves as a global entertainment medium enjoying ever-increasing sales and profits. What was once a contested form of entertainment, now benefits from a level of social acceptability comparable to that of more traditional media such as the cinema. The popularity and cultural capital of video games calls for an inquiry into their contribution to the construction of cultural identity. While this avenue of research has begun to gain momentum, as proven by the increasing number of academic publications on gender identity or sexual orientation, less attention has been given to colonialism and colonial subjects in the context of today’s neoliberal postcolonial and postcommunist world.
