It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.

Vernon Press invites book chapter proposals to be included in a forthcoming scholarly volume on "Monsters and Monstrosity in Media - Reflections on Vulnerability".
How might on-screen constructions of the monster and monsterity represent notions of difference, perceived (non)belongings, and disruptions of traditional identity markers? How do these constructions conceal various vulnerabilities and implicitly endorse violence towards the labelled Other?

Dear friends and colleagues,
Since the turn of the twenty-first century, scholars and educators working in interdisciplinary fields connected to multilingualism, have been developing new conceptual theory and applied pedagogy. These areas include history, culture, linguistics, literary and media phenomena, as well as technological and pedagogical approaches to multilingualism, and the study of multilingual communities in the United States. Immigration, globalization, the mechanization of language diversity, translation tools, social media, and universal streaming platforms have contributed to the rapid progression of multilingualism.

Mapping the Impossible: Journal for Fantasy Research General Issue
Mapping the Impossible is an open-access student journal publishing peer-reviewed research into fantasy and the fantastic.
Laughter is a physical manifestation or, as Jean-Luc Nancy wrote, it is “a body shaken by a thought that is not possible”. In a performance of conceptual poetry you hear as much laughter as in a stand-up comedy performance. However, in the academic world, conceptual writing has been treated mainly as a rational endeavor or a cerebral and intellectual exercise. Enthusiasts and critics alike have often read conceptualist works very seriously.
If Jane Austen and the history books present one version of the regency, Bridgerton shows a far different one. While the series had many surprises for viewers, it’s less clear what’s responsible. Does this come from being a 2020 show? From Netflix style? From the romance novels source material? Let’s consider and also weigh what worked and what didn’t. I’m seeking essays on:
Length will depend on how many submissions arrive. They will be in MLA format, secondary sources welcome, scholarly be approachable and fun for fans. Abstracts still accepted, essays due June 30.
Please send to email@example.com with a subject of Bridgerton.

At this stage, a paragraph-long proposal emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject of JEWISH SPEC-FIC would be great. Here are some examples:

On December 1, 1952, World War II veteran Christine Jorgensen became the first American to undergo sex reassignment surgery. Her long-standing legacy has helped reignite a fundamental debate on gender, sex, and recognition. Indeed, as historian Joanne Meyerowitz notes in How Sex Changed: A History of Transsexuality in the United States (2009), the redefinition of gender identity, “as opposed to biological sex,” was the ultimate product of a long process that “emerged from the medical discourse of the mid-1950s and as a result of the post-Jorgensen phenomenon.” Since then, the non-binary understanding of gender has featured prominently in an ever-expanding debate on American society as it struggled to achieve inclusiveness, freedom, and equality.
