Borders, Boundaries and Identities

Intersections: A Journal of Literary and Cultural Studies

The marking of borders and boundaries aims at structuring and naming spaces – both geographical and symbolic – as distinguishable entities. This naming, however, is subject to the incessant erasure and redrawing of lines of demarcation and redefining of spaces and identities, the demolition and reorganization of power structures, and the repositioning of the centre and the margins. Despite attempts at disciplining territories, spaces and identities, transgressions of boundaries and borders are inevitable. And the passages created by differing boundaries constitute the most contested fields. Nomenclature, therefore, remains a problem without a closure.

Seeking paper proposals for a panel on The Child in Utopia for the Society for Utopian Studies, November 9-13, 2022, in Charleston, SC.
If how a society is judged by how it treats its children, what can we make of the representation of children in utopias and dystopias? How are our cultural perspectives of childhood influenced by utopian or dystopian notions? Are utopias themselves childlike? How are childhood and utopia linked? Are these static or dynamic? These and many other questions can be explored in this panel. The conference’s theme is “make, unmake, remake”—which echoes the path of maturation. Papers dealing with any aspect of child culture, stemming from any academic or creative discipline, are welcome.

The Comparative Literature section of the MMLA invites proposals for papers that engage with any aspect of this year's conference theme, "Post-Now." Building on the conference CFP's proposal to discuss the role of humanities in imagining a different future, this section asks these corollary questions: What is the role of comparative literature in these changing times? How can comparative perspectives and critical theory confront the most critical challenges in the 21st century? How should we imagine our roles as teachers and scholars of comparative literature when national and ethical boundaries are being deconstructed and reconstructed?

The Routledge Studies in Edward Albee and American Theatre book series aims to examine mid-to-late 20th Century American theatre; its most influential and important playwright, Edward Albee; and his contemporaries. This series is equally dedicated to both dramatic literature and theatrical performance, thinking about the American theatre in its totality. This series wants to examine the milieu of American theatre during the course of Albee’s six-decade-long career. Additionally, Edward Albee was a great champion of supporting other playwrights; therefore, in keeping with the mission of the Edward Albee Society, this series is especially interested in books about playwrights that were influenced by Albee.

‘An obsession with individual identity pervaded Western world thinking in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Many people were worried they might lose themselves in the frightening darkness lying just beyond the earthbound. [...] The literature of the time reflects this fascination with the shaky foundations on which rested these authors’ desires for certainty in an unpredictable world.’

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) based approaches have become increasingly popular as “solutions” to curb the extent of mis-, dis- mal-information, hate speech, online violence and harassment on social media. The pandemic and the ensuing work from home policy forced many platforms to shift to automated moderation which further highlighted the inefficacy of existing models (Gillespie, 2020) to deal with the surge in misinformation and harassment.

ISLANDS AND TIME - ISLAND TEMPORALITIES IN THE CONTEXT OF ISLAND RESEARCH

updated:

Narodna umjetnost journal (Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2022

In the context of the social sciences and humanities, research on islands from a variety of disciplines is primarily characterised by spatiality as a fundamental determinant of island cultures. The frequent emphasis on spatiality has resulted in representations of islands as constrained both in everyday life and geographically and marked by a historicised present and a belated modernity. In doing so, the transformative and dynamic character of culture has often been neglected, as well as the heterogeneity of the lived experience of island communities.
