This CFP is a call for essays for a forthcoming edited collection.

Consent is often deemed a prerequisite to ethical interactions—particularly sexual ones. A nonconsensual act is viewed as an affront, a violation, an oppression. For an act to seem permissible, one requires what Heidi M. Hurd calls the “moral magic” of consent.

Afrofuturism, Special Issue of Studies in American Culture

updated: 
Monday, May 20, 2024 - 1:50pm
Studies in American Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 3, 2024

As an aesthetic and cultural movement, Afrofuturism began with Mark Derry’s 1993 essay, “Black to the Future.” Derry poses a difficult question: “Can a community whose past has been deliberately rubbed out, and whose energies have subsequently been consumed by the search for legible traces of its history, imagine possible futures?” The clear answer is a resounding, “YES!” Not only can Black folk imagine possible futures, but they can also write, paint, and sculpt them into being. In this special issue we invite contributors to explore what these possible futures look like. How do Afrofuturist artists reimagine a world where Black folks can be/are free? What is the cost of such freedom?

Black Literature+: African American Literature in Dialogue with the Other Arts
Guest Editors: Brittney Michelle Edmonds (University of Wisconsin) and Hayley O’Malley (Rice University)

In 2004, in a speech about the painter Romare Bearden, Toni Morrison argued that critics must appreciate the “liquidity” between Black art forms, the “resonances, alignments, the connections, the inter-genre sources of African American art... the resounding aesthetic dialogue among artists.” “Locating instances of this liquidity,” Morrison explained, “is vital if African American art is to be understood for the complex work that it is and for the deep meaning it contains.”1

Usually, the narratives around food habits and culinary practices are structured around individual tastes. However, the narratives can be and need to be structured much beyond individual tastes. Historically, it has been observed that individual and collective food habits and culinary practices are driven by various social, cultural, gendered, sexual, racial, caste, geographical, commercial, and political factors. These factors provoke us to go beyond the stereotypical scientific narratives of consumption and unpack the various social dynamics and power structures that are associated with our daily food habits and culinary practices.

The pandemic brought a lot of changes to the structure of American society. COVID-19 was a disabling pandemic, leaving many people with severe health issues that they didn’t have pre-pandemic and which now affect their daily life. And when it comes to mental illness, the pandemic threw some of us into the realization that loneliness, depression, anxiety, etc. are more prevalent than we thought. This issue was so prominent in the minds of health officials, that the Surgeon General released a report on this new loneliness epidemic.

Metal and Change: Metal’s Role in an Ever-Changing World

Since its inception Metal music has been in constant flux, whether in the development of new genres and subgenres to the way that it has been perceived in society over time. Metal music and culture, to survive, need to adapt to a world constantly in upheaval, whether through changing attitudes toward the music, changes in society’s structure, or even changes in what Metal music is and how it addresses issues in the world, like COVID.  But to stay Metal it must still maintain its own identity.
