A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort.    E B White

Literature always gives joy, comfort, and solace to everyone who is in search of it. The poems inspire and kindle our thoughts, the novels drive us to have patience and look for new paths, the drama reflects lives in miniature form, the essays make us ponder on the subtle observation of life, autobiographies motivate and lead us to the path of glory….there is no end to describe what literature is and how it shapes our lives. We at times advertently/ inadvertently drink, consume and digest literature. The famous English essayist Francis Bacon aptly puts, “Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability.”

The theme of this year’s OCD in Society conference is “Theory and Practice”. The goal of the
event is to explore how the humanities, social sciences, activism, and the arts can offer ways to
conceptualise, understand, and raise awareness about obsessive-compulsive symptoms. The
theme of the conference invites contributors to think about how obsessions and/or compulsions
are constituted by, embedded within, and regulated through forms of practice. We interpret
‘practice’ to include practices of care for the body, regulatory practices, creative practices, and
modes of performativity. We also welcome presentations that explore how diverse theoretical

Saturday, January 15, 2022

Memories of military conflicts from both combatants and non-combatants alike have been a key tool in analyzing the unique traumas and socio-cultural affects of modern warfare. Scholars such as Samuel Hynes and Paul Fussell have done seminal work in articulating theoretical approaches to understanding the memories of bearing witness to modern war. Yet, mainstream war literature largely recounts the white voices from the West.

Body practices imply moments of transgression, be it in the active or in the passive crossing of borders. The conference aims to explore the topic of transgressive bodies beyond classical disciplinary boundaries and addresses scholars from the humanities and social sciences, but also natural scientists and physicians who either already conduct research at the interface with the social sciences and/or are interested in an interdisciplinary exchange.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 4, 2022

In the conclusion to Complaint! (2021), Sara Ahmed suggests that “even going through an exhausting of processes can have creative potential.” As much as exhaust signals finality, then, it also acquiesces to a sort of futurity and, in Ahmed’s understanding, even hopefulness: what can develop after we have exhausted all possibilities?

As a verb, “to exhaust” signals depletion and overconsumption as well as fatigue and overexertion. We have exhausted, and we are exhausted; threats of environmental and economic

deadline for submissions:

Each year, Rhetoric Society Quarterly publishes a special issue, the aims of which are to help set the intellectual agenda in rhetorical studies, encourage focused statements on timely topics in rhetorical studies by scholars working in related areas, attract participation by top scholars, and stimulate scholarly activity within the Rhetoric Society of America, such as pre-conference colloquia, convention sessions, and workshops. Recent special issues have addressed relations between rhetoric and disability (2020), demagoguery (2019), and the more-than-human (2017), to name only three examples. As Rhetoric Society Quarterly’s incoming associate editor for special issues, I am pleased to invite proposals for the 2023 special issue.

A Film Scholarship without Films? Reimagining Israeli Cinema History through the Archive

Tuesday, March 15, 2022

In the introduction to the 2007 anthology Looking Past the Screen, Eric Smoodin points to a methodological lacuna within the conventional form of film historiography. This form – which “has at least since the mid-1950s been dominated by the study of the film itself, often organized around genre, nation, or authorship” – is not without its great benefits for historical knowledge; yet by emphasizing cinematic text over context, it has also missed out on important historical insight that may be garnered from closer scrutiny of nonfilmic archival holdings.
