Popular Culture Review Special Issue - Popular Culture and COVID

 

The global pandemic and long periods of self-quarantine shifted everything from work habits, to school, to media consumption, and more.

 

For example, the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons brought families together and even provided a supportive space for on-line memorial services.

Medieval Selves and Communities: Identities, Discourses, and Connections

Tuesday, November 30, 2021

As we have seen with the COVID-19 pandemic, the human response to trauma and tragedy takes a variety of forms: searching for and creating community, memorializing, lashing out, satirizing, and private mourning among them. In the aftermath of trauma and tragedy—be it a natural disaster, pandemic, revolt, or outbreak of violence--the acts of healing and rebuilding can take substantial time and require focused energy. Those living in the medieval past were, of course, no strangers to pandemics, natural disasters, and political and religious upheavals. How did they (and we) attempt to heal and rebuild after such events?

Call for Papers for NeMLA 2022 panel "Literary Form, Spirituality, and Empire in the Global 20th Century"

updated: 
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 - 10:41am

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This panel seeks to explore the interrelations between spirituality, global (anti)imperial politics, and literary form and practice in the twentieth century. There has been a commonly held scholarly contention that modern literature emerged out of a crisis of faith, if not an absolute death of God. Was such a crisis of faith related to global politics in the fin de siècle and later? If yes, how? How is secularist thought related to notions and imaginaries of the globe and of the world? Where did the other-worldly and the inner-worldly meet? How are the transcendental other and the imperial other interrelated in twentieth-century world literatures?

CALL FOR PAPERS: Essays on Police and Policing in 21st Century Film and Television

The Black Lives Matter movement, the trial and conviction of Derek Chauvin,  calls to defund the police, the prominence in the media of killer police such as Joseph James DeAngelo are recent manifestations of intense and even unprecedented levels of media attention on policing at interlocking points of race, inequality, social justice and political agendas.  Equally, exciting cross-disciplinary engagement between fields of justice studies, criminology, cultural studies and popular culture are increasingly opening up.

Dancing, perhaps most famously of the Tik Tok variety, has helped many cope and adapt to the past year’s pandemic, making people feel connected in an almost choreographed way. Not only infiltrating certain web sites, site-specific dance—choreographed work inspired by a specific space or place—is becoming increasingly relevant, especially in environmental terms. Recent projects such as Karole Armitage’s “On the Nature of Things” or Jody Sperling’s “Polar Rhythms” have taken nature, and more specifically climate change and other environmental issues, as their source of inspiration. A transformative art, dance offers the possibility of intimate connection and even continuous metamorphosis.

Description

Among the thousands of novelas cortas published in Spain between 1907 and 1939, more than 300 were written by women. The present panel seeks to explore the ways in which women used early-20th-century Spanish kiosk literature as a medium through which they represented and engaged with the most pressing social, political, and cultural questions surrounding women’s roles in an increasingly modernized society.


Abstract

Cannibalism in Francophone Literature and Culture

Wednesday, August 18, 2021 - 10:38am
53rd Annual Convention of the Northeast Modern Language Association (March 10-13, Baltimore, MD)
deadline for submissions:

A significant body of research on literary and cultural cannibalism has shown that the notion of “cannibalism” results from a displacement of meaning that the Arawak word cariba or caniba underwent when Christopher Columbus first encountered them. According to the Arawak, they used either of these words to designate neighbors who ate the flesh of their enemies. The notion of cannibalism is still used today to designate the “man-eating savage”. Indeed, in literary studies, scholars such as Peter Hulme have shown that the notion of cannibal or cannibalism differs from the older synonym “anthropophagus” or “anthropophagy” insofar as it recalls above all “the image of a ferocious consumption of human flesh” by another human being.

The Millennial Novel (Edited Collection) - Deadline Approaching

updated: 
Wednesday, August 18, 2021 - 8:53am
Loïc Bourdeau and Christopher Lloyd
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This edited collection aims to theorize and contextualize transnational manifestations of the “millennial novel,” a term that has been used often derogatively to describe contemporary fiction from a generation of writers living through unprecedented historical upheavals. The book will not debate the use of the term, but rather provide an initial theorization of its forms and primary concerns. Characterised, we might say, by rootlessness, anxiety, ennui, and a general detachment from the governing socioeconomic structures of neoliberal modern life, the millennial novel is a genre at once over-debated and under-examined.

Tuesday, December 31, 2024

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.
