‘Culture’ is a loaded and intense term that encapsulates the intersections of complex social structures, ideologies, and representations. Culture and its intricate study are thus situated in the dense interplay of deeper linguistic expressions, diverse literary and non-literary constructions, and polymorphous media narratives. While reading a Harry Potter book; watching a Bollywood movie; enjoying an IPL match; relishing the WhatsApp jokes; buying a Maharaja burger; and interacting in a multicultural classroom—we are invariably and unwittingly encompassed and informed by the ‘circuit of culture’ (Paul Du Gay: 1997).

The moments of the past do not remain still; they retain in our memory the motion which drew them towards the future, towards a future which has itself become the past, and draw us on in their train.” (Marcel Proust).

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 19, 2022

We are editing a Handbook of the Short Story in the World for Brill as part of the series Handbooks of Literary and Cultural Studies, and we are looking for chapters on some specific topics (see below). We are well aware that the chapters are broad in their scope. Some of these chapters should have a comparativist approach that covers several countries. For that reason, we are looking for potential contributors who have expertise in the field to write a synthetical approach to the topic while at the same time being analytical in the discussion of concrete short stories. Ideally a chapter should offer an overview of the topic, and then discuss three or four authors and/ or stories.

Critical reflections on pandemic politics: left-wing, feminist and anti-racist critiques

updated: 
Thursday, January 20, 2022 - 5:05am
The Institute for Cultural Inquiry (ICON) at Utrecht University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 11, 2022

As various formats of lockdown to contain the Covid-19 virus in many nations across the world continue into their second year, there is an urgent need to critically analyze this situation and its historical backdrop from more traditionally left-oriented perspectives. This urgent need is likewise required in light of the more recent global vaccine rollouts and various digital health pass mandates that have followed as a supposed ‘way out’ of the lockdown logic. Such lockdowns, health pass mandates, and blanket vaccine rollouts clearly attempt to posit some kind of ‘public good’ or ‘solidarity’ over more individualist considerations; sentiments which on the surface appear to be benevolent and even left-oriented.

Research on the premodern intersection of race, gender, and sexuality has steadily increased as a result of the efforts of a diverse group of scholars working across traditional periodization and geographic limits. Nevertheless, a great deal of work remains to be done to understand the many varieties of ways such aspects of identities intersected and were mobilized or challenged in the marking of difference.

Ecological Sensitivity. Media Techno-Aesthetics of Environmental Crisis

Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 10:47am
Elephant&Castle #28/2022
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 20, 2022

The theme of environmental crisis has been present in the public debate for several decades, and forcefully resurfaced in 2015 when the 2030 Agenda containing the goals of sustainable development was launched, including the preservation of all forms of life, the struggle against global warming and the production of clean and renewable energy. In the same year, the publication of the papal encyclical Laudato si’ on “integral ecology” and the conclusion of the Paris agreements on climate change also prompted debate on this theme. Throughout the years, environmental issues have progressively permeated the realm of scientific research as well.

Call for Papers — Blackboxed Futures: Multiple Temporalities of Algorithmic Technologies (Online Symposium)

updated: 
Tuesday, January 18, 2022 - 10:47am
Higher School of Economics, Moscow
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, February 20, 2022

Algorithmic technologies are nowadays proliferating in various sectors of the economy and, more generally, in society. Yet, while their widespread development already occupies several areas of contemporary life, their material configuration often remains opaque and difficult to comprehend, especially when it comes to how algorithms shape the futures of people and societies at large. Often, algorithms and AI technologies are conceived by their users and creators as “magic” that is beyond comprehension — an understanding that has a range of political and cultural implications for society (Campolo & Crawford, 2020) and has been consequently recognized in the theorizations of economy and politics (Pignarre & Stengers, 2012).
