Expanding on the NeMLA’s theme of (R)evolution, this panel seeks proposals that examine the role that women of color authors and artists have played (throughout the centuries) in helping to change and revolutionize literature by and about, literary representations of, and literary studies focused on women of color in the United States.  It seeks work that examines how women of color have addressed and used their intersectional identities to change the American literary landscape, challenge the American literary canon, and changed how they and their communities have been viewed in the United States.  Proposals can also include how women of color have challenged issues within their own communities and used a multiethnic approach to help literature and liter

The twentieth anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Gladiator (2000) was an important moment in film history, for it not only marked a great film and work of art, but it also reminded audiences how peplum and historical epics still mattered. The edited collection “A Hero Will Endure”: Essays at the Twentieth Anniversary of ‘Gladiator’ (2023) provided insights on the film two decades after its release.

Yet now there is a sequel with a November 2024 release. This CFP therefore serves to build on the work done in the 2023 essays and provide a further avenue of exploration for connections between the two films as well as innovative readings of Gladiator 2 on its own.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

The continuation of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, political repressions, crackdowns on LGBTQ+, women’s, ethnic and religious communities’ rights, environmental crises, and the ramifications of colonial legacies have marked the past several years in the region of Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Central Asia, and the Caucasus. While indispensable academic research is being carried out to investigate various forms of political, social, cultural, and economic oppression and violence, it is crucial to highlight positive alternatives nurtured in these hostile contexts.

Many of the theoretical fundamentals developed for literary and cultural studies throughout the twentieth century have become less efficacious. In recent decades, scholars have, indeed, investigated the transformations of storytelling and cultural consumption in the digital age. However, this issue looks to further explore the future of literary and cultural studies from a world-systems perspective with a focus on the alterations of novelistic narratives in the larger context of the supplanting of liberal, humanistic, sense-making mechanisms by computational regimes of meaning.

I am accepting proposals for an edited collection with a working title of Case Studies in Horror-Comedy Films. This edited collection is under contract with a university press, with an anticipated publication date in late 2025. The existing group of contributions well illustrates the focus and structure of the collection, which corresponds to comic takes on horrors of the body, mind, and society. The motivation for this call for additional chapters is to expand the attention to national cinemas beyond North America.

Culture and Dialogue provides a forum for researchers from philosophy as well as other disciplines who study cultural formations dialogically, through comparative analysis, or within the tradition of hermeneutics. The journal publishes one volume of two issues each year. One issue welcomes manuscripts that consider the broad theme of “culture and dialogue” in all its forms, from all perspectives, and through all methods. The other issue is thematic and seeks to bring manuscripts together with a common denominator such as “Philosophy and the Dialogue,” “Art in Conversation,” “Comparing Cultures,” or “Dialogical Ethics.” The theme of the thematic issue is announced through dedicated calls for papers.

Special Issue on "Borders / Crossing in medieval English literature, language, and culture"

ÉTUDES MÉDIÉVALES ANGLAISES
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, October 15, 2024

We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue of EMA (Etudes Médiévales Anglaises) on the theme
"Borders / Crossing in medieval English literature, language, and culture." 

The notions of borders and crossing, and the articulation between them, can be conceived in many ways. Borders, whether natural or arbitrary, sealed or porous, fixed or mobile, as limits or confines, spatial or temporal, can be seen as an obstacle or a wall. They are also a challenge to be taken up and overcome (expansion, threshold to a new era), hence the notion of crossing (movement, transfer, transformation). As delimitations, borders help to constitute an identity which refers to the outside as otherness.

“Revolutions are the locomotives of history,” wrote Marx 175 years ago in The Class Struggles in France, where the working and peasant classes were struggling against the capitalist system. Today, not only have the conditions of human beings failed to improve, but the rise of neo-capitalism and its imperial power has led to the rebirth of slavery in countries such as Congo and Libya, the complete destruction of third-world nations like Palasteine and Haiti by neocolonialism, and the further isolation of the working class across the globe.

For a special issue of TDR: The Drama Review, a journal of performance studies, co-editor madison moore and consortium editor Rebecca Schneider seek submissions that engage the “knowing how” of queer nightlife. “Knowing” here finds kinship with feeling, glitter on the floor, skin on skin, tactility, sweat, diffraction, dissolution.

We are interested in the many elemental gestures, performances, forms of labor, mess, doing/undoing, imagination, making/unmaking as well as the failures, exhaustions, and obstacles that power or foreclose the rhythms of community, pleasure, and ecstasy at
night.
