Enclosure is as much origin-story as it is globally contested condition. Critical accounts
positioning the act of enclosure as integral to the root-systems of global capitalism,
environmental catastrophe and precarity often refer to the historical effort by landowners to do
away with the commons in favor of legally and politically recognized enclosures. Transforming
sustainable agricultural practices into sites of energy-production primed for capital development,
the early-modern enclosure movement gave rise to what Robert P. Marzec characterizes as “a
model of the human that took as its direct enemy an environment thought to be threatening

The realm of science fiction serves as a captivating tapestry, weaving together speculative narratives that extend beyond the bounds of conventional reality. Within this expansive genre, three thematic strands emerge as critical foci: Posthumanism, Alternate Realities, and Cyberculture. This exploration aims to unravel the nuanced layers embedded within these themes, offering a critical lens through which to examine the implications for contemporary society, ethical considerations, and the trajectory of human existence.

In today's world, we bear witness to epidemics and pandemics, the global climate change caused by human actions, as well as ecological collapse marked by floods, hurricanes, and earthquakes. These events underscore the risks and challenges of a human-centered way of life. At the same time, they remind us of the need to reconsider our binary and hierarchical divisions between humans and the Earth, humans and animals, mind and body, nature and culture.

Call for Papers: Margaret Fuller, Women in the 19C, and Resilience

Panel for the Thoreau Gathering in Concord, MA, July 10-14, 2024

Margaret Fuller both overcame odds and recognized the virtue of resilience in others. “Resilience” is the theme of this year’s Thoreau Gathering, and the organizers suggest four categories for considering this strength: ecological, cultural/political, personal/spiritual, and legacy. With some major differences from Thoreau, these same categories are helpful with Fuller, and in our annual contribution to the Gathering we invite presentations approaching her and likeminded women writers in her circles that also draw on one of these kinds of resilience.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 22, 2023

The No Limit Reader draws inspiration from the entrepreneurial spirit of Percy Miller’s No Limit Records, but it also recognizes the cultural influence of Louisiana and its musical traditions that extend well beyond the borders of New Orleans. The collection also capitalizes on the rich cultural history of New Orleans and its recent musical resurgence as seen in Juvenile’s Tiny Desk concert for NPR, Master P’s performance at the BET Awards, and Beyoncé’s continued references to her Louisiana roots (i.e. “My Daddy Alabama, Mama Louisiana; You mix that Negro with that Creole, make a Texas bama” ).

In Postinternet: art after the internet, Marisa Olson defines the ‘postinternet’ variously as “a moment, a condition, a property, and a quality that transcends new media” (2017). Not simply a historical marker in relation to the advent of online networks, the ‘postinternet’ “encapsulates and transports network conditions and their critical awareness as such, even so far as to transcend the internet” (2017).

[Call for Chapters] “Problematic” Punk: NOFX's Forty Years of Punk Provocations

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 1, 2024

For forty years, NOFX’s brand of (depending who you ask) witty, offensive, humorous, juvenile, intelligent, existential, political, anti-PC, and/or philosophically probing punk has reared several generations in punk attitude and ethos, for better or worse (again, depending who you ask). The band got its start in the early-1980s Los Angeles punk scene, was among the pioneers of the melodic yet hardcore So-Cal punk style, rode the wave of 1990s punk popularity without signing to a major record label, took a political turn during the Bush era, and continued their punk provocations until retiring in 2023.
