The Moving Image invites submissions for possible inclusion in a Borders and Borderlands Special Issue.

In 2017 historian Per Faxneld published the landmark study Satanic Feminism: Lucifer as the Liberator of Woman in Nineteenth-Century Culture. The book argues for the existence of a nineteenth-century counter-reading of Satan that constructed the Devil as a symbol of women's liberation, progressive values, and intellectual freedom. For nineteenth- and early twentieth-century suffragists, artists, and radical thinkers, Satan served as an empowering model of self-determination and nonconformity.

POETRY AND THE GLOBAL CLIMATE CRISIS:
CREATIVE APPROACHES TO COMPLEX CHALLENGES
To find a point of intersection between the realms of fashion and psychoanalysis, we should first try to define what exactly is fashion. As an expression of creativity, fashion could serve as a medium to canalize the inner life of the individuum, which is a concept that evokes the notion of the subconscious. Some artists and designers have already undergone an exploration of this field of work, Dalí and Schiaparelli being the most relevant case among them. Despite its clear connection with the principles of the surrealist movement, which generates its creativity precisely from the shadows of the human psyche, fashion articulates its imagery in highly symbolized language.
A new book series has been established by Routledge, with a focus on popular culture.
The Routledge Advances in Popular Culture Studies series is looking for original and interdisciplinary monographs or edited volumes, which expand our understanding of popular culture as reflecting world challenges, contexts, and situations. The Series places a particular emphasis on evolutions and transformations within popular culture — with a focus on icons, narratives, practices, and identities — and aims to provide interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transmedia perspectives.
The editor of the series welcomes proposals for projects on a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to):

International Congress on Medieval Studies, 2022
Special Session: Nineteenth-/Twentieth-/Twenty-First-Century Medievalisms
Organizer: Robert Sirabian, UW-Stevens Point
Presider: Daniel C. Najork, San Diego State University
The title for this session is taken from the AMC series The Terror, in which an older man is heartbroken as he stands by the bed of his dying captain. “It was an honor serving you, sir. You are a good man. There will be poems,” he assures him (The Terror Episode 9). His grief and his care are portrayed sincerely and not as an indication of a lack of masculinity or courage. His desire to create poems for a beloved dying man is not pathologized and instead represents a strength of character. This year, NEMLA asks us to consider the theme of care, and our vulnerabilities and interdependence on each other.

Contemporary Critical Theory and Decolonial Visual Praxis: Exploring resistance narratives and colonial hegemonies in the pandemic
“Critical does not mean destructive, but only willing to examine what we presuppose in our way of thinking, and that gets in our way of making a more liveable world.”
Guest edited by The Humanities Editors Collective, York University
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 30, 2021
Medieval archives abound with accounts of food-related practices and encounters, with acute attention paid to the food habits of “others” (neighbors, foreigners, pagans) and the impact of communal eating in various social spaces. This session explores the rich intersections of food, affect, and communal identity in the medieval period. We especially welcome contributions that engage with affective responses to the food cultures of “others,” paralleled in the COVID-19 era by the Western world’s alarm at “exotic” foodstuffs, or contributions that focus on sociocultural practices (such as eating together or sharing dishes) long taken for granted but recently destabilized due to the effects of the pandemic.

This roundtable asks participants to engage with and present the new directions in feminist pedagogy that inevitably emerged in the past two years (2020-2022) during the coronavirus pandemic, but also beyond it. In the words of Kevin M. Gannon in the book Radical Hope: A Teaching Manifesto, “Teaching is a radical act of hope. It is an assertion of faith in a better future in an increasingly uncertain and fraught present. It is a commitment to that future even if we can’t clearly discern its shape. It is a continuing pedagogical practice rather than a set of static characteristics” (5). Grounded in feminism, this roundtable asks participants to present their innovations in pedagogy across a spectrum of challenges.
This zine will begin fall 2021. Its impetus is Quentin Meillassoux's writing and its goal is to offer an informal space to publish a wide range of responses to it.

When reading a text, the reader is often confronted with the issue of voice. Who is speaking? Is it an affirmed voice or, on the contrary, a discreet voice? Is it a single or a collective voice? Voice is polymorphous and can take several aspects in the text: speech, shout, whispering, song. The reader must constantly keep in mind these interactions between voice, writing, and silence. In the Early Modern Period, voice can took many forms; In Montaigne’s Essais, we find occurrences of the term “voice” to designate both “word” and “speaking.” In La Rhétorique Française, Fouquelin refers to voice to talk about pronunciation.

CFP – Panel Submission – C19 2022 (Coral Cables Florida, March 31-April 2)
Reconstructing Class Analysis
On July 4, 1826, Robert Owen delivered an oration that would go on to be known as the “Declaration of Mental Independence” in which he situated an ideology animating his experimental society in New Harmony, Indiana within an existing tradition of American liberty. Communal societies seek to reconstruct society in miniature, though in the 19th century several of these experiments ultimately aspired to reshape society on a grand scale.
We seek essays that explore 19th century American communitarian experiments as revisions, renewals, and reconstructions of existing institutions, cultures, and mores. Essays may explore:
tensions between the public and private in intentional communities
Digital Symposium: 20 November 2021
“Fantastika” – a term appropriated from a range of Slavonic languages by John Clute – embraces the genres of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror, but can also include Alternate History, Gothic, Steampunk, Young Adult Dystopic Fiction, or any other radically imaginative narrative space. Our goal is to bring together academics, independent researchers, creators, and audiences who share an interest in this diverse range of fields with the aim of opening up new dialogues, productive controversies, and critical collaborations.
