It’s time we began to talk about the twenty-first century. Period.

 

Periodization is one of those topics to which academics often say there are no well-rounded approaches. We qualify our account, understate the possibility of being spot-on, and even feel apologetic.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS: “FORGING THE MEDIEVAL” IN INSTITUTIONS

 

Proposals for short essays (c. 3500-8000 words) are warmly welcomed, on the topic of “forging the medieval” in institutions. In galleries, museums, schools, universities, libraries, archives, or other institutions, how is the medieval past forged? How is it created and curated, presented and (mis)represented, through the institution’s objects and the concept of the institution itself?

No Guardrails: Teaching and Learning in Times of Trauma

Melissa J. Jones
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 15, 2023

This collection seeks essays willing to explore what it means to flounder and flop--to be afraid and uncomfortable--and to get back up to teach (one hopes) another day. For this is the precarious new normal of teaching and learning in post-pandemic America, where primary and secondary educators are fleeing the profession in droves--citing too much pressure, too little pleasure--and murmurs of “quiet quitting” across college campuses suggest that higher ed might not be far behind.

CfP: Transplanetary Ecologies Workshop

Centre for Outer Space Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 28, 2023

Continuous human presence in Low Earth Orbit, increasing expansion of techno-scientific infrastructures beyond Earth, and the extractivist ambitions of the commercial 'New Space' sector call for a reconsideration of the conventional analytical frameworks used to describe emergent (extra)terrestrial political, ecological, and social processes. On these accelerating investments, Vidmar has stated “the interplay between natural and social phenomena in the highly contested yet vastly open-ended Universe gave rise to an ecology of (trans)planetary systems – biological, technological and intellectual” (Vidmar, 2020, EASST.net).

MLA 2024: Interpreting Italian American Visual Arts and Cultures

updated: 
Saturday, February 4, 2023 - 5:09pm
MLA 2024
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 17, 2023

This panel investigates Italian American transnational and transgenerational depictions of memory and ethnic identity through visual culture. Our goal is to invite scholars to reflect on diverse media and forms of representation, drawing attention to artists, authors, and performers who used visual components to narrate their hybrid identities and relationships to trauma, diaspora, and postmemory. Names like Fasanella, B. Amore, DiSalvo, Stella, and Scanga, come to mind, as artists who gave form to visual tropes of memory narrating their experience as first and second generation Italian Americans.

CharlOz--an interdisciplinary festival celebrating Oz

updated: 
Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 3:31pm
UNC Charlotte
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 17, 2023

At this three-day festival, writers, scholars, collectors, and fans will explore The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Written in 1900, Baum's fairy tale incorporated timeless life lessons, and his stories were ahead of their time.

As Oz magic continues far beyond Baum's lifetime, we benefit from fresh Oz interpretations in visual, performing, and literary art. Works like The Wiz, Wicked, Dorothy Must Die, and Amy Chu and Janet K. Lee's Sea Sirens reflect changes in American culture, while incorporating the non-traditional gender roles and diverse characters that Baum ingrained in Oz.

Proposals accepted February 10, 2023, and November 17, 2023

Early European Puppetry Studies Conference

updated: 
Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 3:25pm
Yale University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2023

From moving statues to artificial animals to marionette performances, puppetry seems to have appeared in every sector of medieval and early modern European society. Jointed religious figures illustrated the liturgy, while dragon effigies processed through cities on feast days, and popular and courtly audiences enjoyed puppet shows of legendary and historical events. Despite the ubiquity of medieval and early modern puppets in Europe, scholarly consideration of these performing objects is often limited to case studies. Consideration of “puppetry” as a particular form with its own norms and commonalities is also uncommon, due in part to the marginal position of puppetry in Western culture.
