CFP: Saying Yes to Nope: Cinema, Spectacle, and Race in Jordan Peele’s Nope

Editors: Russell Meeuf, Nancy McGuire Roche, and Eric Gary Anderson

Jordan Peele’s third feature film, Nope, has cemented Peele’s place in contemporary cinema as a visionary auteur concerned with cinema, race, genre, and media spectacle. Building on his work as a writer-director on Get Out and Us, and expanding his oeuvre as a film and television producer across genres, Nope is Peele’s most reflexive work to date, exploring our cultural obsessions with spectacle and media culture’s impact on people of color.

The Difficulties of Solidarity

Critical Times: Interventions in Global Critical Theory
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, August 1, 2023

This issue of Critical Times probes the question of solidarity—its subjects, horizons, difficulties, and limits. In some social-theoretical accounts, solidarity is a force that coheres subjects, holds them together in one community, and coordinates their aspirations, sympathies, or interests in perfect unity. Solidarity, in other words, transcends differences to generate unity; indeed, it converts difference into sameness. And when such differences persist or reappear in new forms, solidarity is said to be in danger or to have failed. Yet this is neither the only archive nor the only horizon of solidarity.

Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2024

Frontiers: A Journal of Women Studies was founded in Boulder, Colorado, in 1975 and was housed in the Women's Studies department at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Frontiers began as a volunteer-based organization to bridge academic and community-based feminist knowledge and corresponded with a local movement among students, faculty, and community members to develop a women's studies program at the University of Colorado. Using a range of informal tactics, the Frontiers editorial collective established itself as "an incorporated legal nonentity," a strategic move aimed at circumventing the heteropatriarchal administrative tactics that had hindered the formation of women's studies programs in universities across the U.S.

Eva Hayward (2022) inquires, “Can trans mean anything to ecology?

The issue follows the Queer & Trans Ecologies Symposium that took place at the University of Minnesota in spring 2023.

Teaching Critical Race Theory

updated: 
Friday, June 9, 2023 - 7:02am
Celia Carlson / PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2023

This panel queries the notion of “critical race theory” and how to teach racial issues whether or not one is specifically a “critical race theorist.” This topic is especially urgent during a time of right-wing “anti-‘woke’” agendas that seek to erase the very concept of race from public education and to attack as “divisive” any effort to offer a historically informed and rigorous accounting for ongoing inequality and racism in American society. Race is perversely both denied and invoked as that topic which is too disturbing to teach and yet absolutely necessary for the maintenance of normative political structures.

What does art do for us? How do we make meaningful art? How does climate change affect our art-making? How do we perform apocalypse? How do we perform care?
