Recent discussions and debates in literary and creative writing studies have invited fiction writers, scholars, and readers alike to re-evaluate the form and the function of the short story. The rise and prominence of online literary magazines and e-texts have forced writers to adapt to lower word counts and the challenges of on-screen reading: writers have responded with fragmented and braided narratives that eschew the “long-read” short story published in venues like The New Yorker or Paris Review. Handheld gaming on consoles like Nintendo’s 3DS and Switch systems have brought genres like the visual novel to the West—transforming short-form narratives into portable and interactive hybrid works of literature.

In anticipation of the 2022 Annual Convention of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association (to be held at UCLA, November 11-13, 2022), we seek proposals on the intersections of politics and poetry in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.  This session affords a space to assess the past century’s poetic/political interventions, exploring how poetry and poetic experience have lent themselves to critiquing the status quo, imagining radical futures, mobilizing collectivities, and resisting the present in various ways.  Of particular interest are abstracts that are adjacent to the conference theme –“Geographies of the Fantastic and Quotidian” –or which specifically engage with the poetry of Los Angeles as

Recent essays and articles in publications like The Atlantic and Vox have voiced growing concerns about the increasing elasticity of “trauma.” Even so, those same texts note the value of recognizing others’ trauma and of responding ethically to their stories. This worth is particularly evident in the wake of the many Covid-related traumatic events and the most recent racial reckonings (that may or may not have occurred) in the US and around the world.

The editors of Philosophy of Photography invite contributions to a special issue: Violence!

 

Full call for papers here>>

https://www.intellectbooks.com/asset/65396/1/POP_CfP_2022.pdf

 

Photography’s ubiquity means that it touches all realms of life. Indeed, it has arguably taken on a new and fundamental characteristic as the way that things emerge in heavily technologized societies. Violence is undoubtedly a determining category of this mode of society. Is violence, then, photographic? If so, is this a contingent fact or a necessary condition?

Sir John Falstaff enters the Shakespearean stage asking what time of day it is and leaves it at the turning of the tide.  This collection of essays is interested in ideas about temporal shifts in early modern drama. Topics could include (but are not limited to) changing seasons; the representation of individual seasons in plays; holidays and ritual markers of time; the ebb and flow of tides; measurement of time and perceptions of temporal change; day, night, dawn and dusk; understandings of different time zones; the ageing process; saints’ days, quarter days, anniversaries, and other calendrical markers; accession days; and whether there was any awareness at the time of what we would now call the Little Ice Age.

Peace and justice educators have long recognized the value of the arts in helping students identify, critique, and reimagine themes related to conflict, peace, and efforts toward social justice. Using various creative elements, literary, visual, and/or auditory arts can explore complexities of the human condition in ways that are often overlooked in fields associated with the social sciences. By exploring people’s lived experiences of conflict, artistic works can provoke us to reconsider questions of social justice and our standpoints in relation to others.

The year 2022 marks the centenary of the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, unearthed by a team of Egyptian excavators led by Howard Carter and financed by the fifth Earl of Carnarvon. In the hundred years that followed, in what ways have media and performance contributed to the retelling and reshaping of this historic moment and the discovery’s cultural aftermath? Whose voices have been amplified, and whose marginalised? Where has historical accuracy given way to creative license? What audiences have been catered to, and what does this tell us about the ways in which Egyptology is ‘consumed’?

• queer working-class literature

Morality and Anglo-American Modernism

In the years leading up to the publication of The Waste Land, T. S. Eliot decried what he called the moral cowardice endemic to post-war London, and particularly to its literary circles.  D. H. Lawrence was similarly preoccupied with morality in his literary critical essays, writing, for example, that "Morality in the novel is the trembling instablity of the balance [between opposing forces].  When the novelist puts his thumb in the scale, to pull down the balance to his own predilection, that is immorality."  And, finally, Hemingway once suggested to a group of professors that of all his novels, the best to teach is The Sun Also Rises because, he said, it is a "very moral novel."
