Building Communities of Resistance: bell hooks’ Life, Work, and Impact
When we talk about that which will sustain and nurture our spiritual growth as a people, we must once again talk about the importance of community. For one of the most vital ways we sustain ourselves is by building communities of resistance, places where we know we are not alone.

to be published by Routledge

Revealing Posthuman Encounters in Performance is an intervention to reframe current theatre studies methodologies to attend to the broader spectrum of non-human actors and the crucial ways they exert agency in the theatre event.
Vancouver, located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, has long been a site of occupation, exchange, defiance and resilience. From time immemorial, it has been a location of trade and traversal across coastal Indigenous communities of the Pacific and, in more recent centuries, a place where other diverse cultures from across the world have also negotiated relation across colonial pathways and settlements. Vancouver is a site of multiple Nation to Nation relationships. It is a site of resistance as well as capitulation to uneven development, neoliberal markets, colonial laws, and to exclusion – situations exacerbated by the recent pandemic.
The organizers of the 2022 British Women Writers Conference held this year at Baylor University invite papers and panel proposals interpreting the theme of “Borders” in 18th- and 19th-century British women’s writing. In response to the 2021 BWWC “Reorientations,” panels and papers on topics related to race and ethnicity are especially welcome.
While fantasy fiction has become incredibly popular and prolific in these last few decades, the appeal of fantastical literature dates back to antiquity, as mythologies, legends, and encounters with the supernatural have formed a large part of narrative traditions in every culture and language. This companion seeks to update and address underexamined areas of fantasy fiction, with the chief aim to provide a global introduction to English-language and English-translation fantasy fiction. This collection will focus on the contemporary written word (narrative prose) produced in late 20th and early 21st century.

Roundtable: Richard Wright’s Place in the Canon
As a sport, basketball follows a certain set of rules and conventions which serve as a framework for players, coaches, and teams to play the sport. By their very nature, these rules are meritocratic which means that all participants are equal on the court, play by the same rules, and the only relevant (read as: game deciding) factors are effort, skill, and fortune. Such a perspective on basketball and sports leads certain fans and observers to statements such as “politics should be kept out of sports”.
There Can Be Only One. This phrase was made popular 35 years ago with the release of Highlander, a fantasy action-adventure film directed by Russell Mulcahy and starring Christophe Lambert, Sean Connery, and Clancy Brown. While it did not turn a profit during its theatrical release, it did become a cult film inspiring several sequels, three television series, original novels, comic books, audio books, video games, a web series, collectibles, musical scores, and a loyal fandom who have successfully organized a number of Highlander fan conventions.
Eco-Aesthetics: What is it? How to query it and think it through? This panel takes up such a line of inquiry within at least three broad domains: epistemology, method/practice and comparison. Especially for those who invested in ongoing concerns pertaining to ecology, environmentalism, wildlife preservation, sustainability, this panel seeks to amplify their voices in stock-taking the term Eco-Aesthetics. How do we conceptualize it epistemologically? How can Eco-Aesthetics be informed by and inform a multitude of trans-disciplinary discourses such as those coming out of art, anthropology, ethics, religious studies, natural sciences, architecture, spirituality and ritual studies?

Keynote: To Be Confirmed
What happens when the images come into the world? With or without its consent, civil society has been constantly imaged, recorded, documented, archived and exhibited. This omnipresence of images created, circulated, and displayed merits an analysis of the multiplicity of its forms and its roots.

Ecopedagogies and Hispanic Studies:
Knowledge and Skills for the Anthropocene
Revista de ALCES XXI. Journal of Contemporary Spanish Literature and Film 2023 Special Issue
While traditional pedagogies have contributed to what Rob Nixon has called the two defining crises of the 21st century: catastrophic climate change and widening global disparity, the emergence of critical pedagogies and environmental humanities has brought new ways for curricular innovation.
Often drawing from religious mythology, fantastic literature has been intricately linked to religious themes since before the mid-twentieth century, when Lewis wrote The Chronicles of Narnia, a religious allegory (although he insisted that it was not), and Tolkien formulated his understanding of fantasy as a sub-creation. In His Dark Materials (1995-2000), Philip Pullman creates a New Eve and imagines a frail deity no longer in control. A myriad of fantastic fiction — such as Terry Pratchett's Hogfather (1996) and Neil Gaiman's American Gods (2001) — also looks at the displacement or immigration of old gods as well as the creation of new ones.
There have been several recent studies of literary writing as something that crosses between secular artistry and religious practice, for example Kyle Garton-Gundling’s Enlightened Individualism: Buddhism and Hinduism in American Literature from the Beats to the Present and Avram Alpert’s A Partial Enlightenment: What Modern Literature and Buddhism Can Teach Us About Living Well Without Perfection. The writers who are discussed in relation to Buddhism and other religions spreading from Asia to the West has increased since the Beats were the “usual suspects,” but it was surprising that Buddhism was rarely mentioned in the recent obituaries of bell hooks.

Please consider applying to the forthcoming National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers on continuity and change in the production, dissemination, and reading of Western European books during the 200 years following the advent of printing with movable type. The seminar will pose the governing question of whether the advent of printing was a necessary precondition for the Protestant Reformation. Participants will consider ways in which elements such as book layout, typography, illustration, and paratext (e.g., prefaces, glosses, and commentaries) shaped the responses of readers.

When, in his Preface to Lyrical Ballads (1802), William Wordsworth insisted that an “overbalance of pleasure” entails the “circumstance of meter,” he confirmed a philosophical assumption far older than Kant's theory of the sublime. The pervasive assumption—which, today, can be tracked in an on-going
“affective turn” (necessarily entangled in matters of form and style)—is that the artificial makes possible an understanding of the natural.
