Notes from the Field, a publication of the TPS Collective, is now accepting submissions about teaching with primary sources for two series of peer-reviewed blog posts: “Teaching through the Pandemic: Challenges, Triumphs, and the Next Chapter” and “Practical Pandemic Instruction.” These series are intended to highlight a broad range of voices in reflective practice from all sectors of the TPS community.
Series Two: Practical Pandemic Instruction
Journal of Festival Culture Inquiry and Analysis, Education Special.
FCRE is committed to developing an understanding of how festival culture impacts education at all levels, all ages, all over the world. We view education as a meaningful vehicle for the transmission of culture. For this reason, it is crucial to investigate and educate on how festival culture has changed or sustained education practice.
The Festival Culture Research and Education Network will publish the Journal of Festival Culture Inquiry and Analysis.
This open-access peer-reviewed journal focus on strong and serious submissions that foregrounds inquiry on festival culture that would not necessarily fall under festival culture because of its inter-, multi-, trans- or cross-disciplinary dimension.
'POWER, EMPOWERMENT AND DISEMPOWERMENT'
Issue 63: April 2022: Exploring Motherly Instincts: Representation of Mothers in Indian Cinema [Last date for submission: 28 February, 2022; Date of publication: 1 April, 2022]
Guest-Editor: Srija Sanyal, Research Scholar, Ronin Institue, USA.
Frank Herbert’s Dune (1965) is as celebrated as it is because of its depth and complexity, of course. It’s also, however, presumably, because its storyline, and that of its two initial sequels, Dune Messiah (1969) and Children of Dune (1976), of a crusade led by a prophet with superhuman abilities and its legacy, resonated with readers awash in social and political turbulence. It’s not difficult to imagine, then, that adaptations have emerged at regular intervals for similar reasons, beginning with David Lynch’s Dune (1984), John Harrison’s Dune (2000) and Children of Dune (2003), and now Denis Villeneuve’s forthcoming Dune (2021).
What is disability? What is care?
Disability Scholar Margaret Price provides the following guidelines for care:
“It means giving more when one has the ability to do so, and accepting help when that is needed. It does not mean knowing exactly what another’s pain feels like, but it does mean respecting each person’s pain as real and important… [C]are must emerge between subjects considered to be equally valuable... and it must be participatory in nature, that is, developed through the desires and needs of all participants” (2015).
Our panel invites papers that approach television and film from the emerging interdisciplinary field, Singles Studies. We are interested in papers that critique well-worn tropes of the single in television and film and papers that engage with more complex and nuanced single characters who help us to rethink the single person and singleness.
The editor of WSA welcomes submissions for volume 28, scheduled for publication in Spring 2022. The deadline for volume 28 consideration is 15 October 2021.

The Journal of Gender, Ethnic, and Cross-Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary journal with the primary goal to facilitate the examination of the intersection among gender, cultural, and ethnic studies. Published biannually, this journal seeks to invigorate discussions of the global mobilization of people, ideas, and capital, and the ways in which this circulation has influenced conceptions of gender, ethnicity/race, migration, and culture. In the very same way, the journal examines the gendered nature of cultures and cultural encounters across borders. It is committed to facilitating intersectional, interdisciplinary dialogue which results from the crossing of disciplinary boundaries.
The Walt Disney Company's films, theme parks, and other media are full of people and places coded as medieval, from the Magic Kingdom's castles and fairies to the kingdom of Arendelle in the Frozen films. This session invites papers that examine medievalism in Disney entertainment from a variety of disciplinary and critical perspectives. Papers about Disney’s recently acquired franchises (such as Star Wars, Pixar, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe) are also encouraged.

Please submit a 250–word abstract at the ICMS website (https://wmich.edu/medievalcongress/call) by September 15, 2021.

"I, too, having lost faith / in language, have placed my faith in language" (Terrance Hayes, "Snow for Wallace Stevens")
As Terrance Hayes exemplifies in his portrayal of Wallace Stevens’ racism, language underpins both care-full and care-less representations. As an interdependent system that necessarily implicates and involves us all, language demands our thoughtful investigation when it comes to how we might communicate care.
