CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS: Women’s Innovations in Theatre, Dance, and Performance 

We are writing about a call for contributors to an exciting new series at Bloomsbury. Women’s Innovations in Theatre, Dance, and Performance aims to capture the innovations women have made to the performing arts in their historical, geographical, and disciplinary diversity. This series seeks to broaden, celebrate, and recover historical awareness of these performance-based artmakers and their contributions; as such, it will showcase innovative, intersectional feminist historiographical approaches along with a history of women’s innovation in the field.

Call for Articles – ‘Uncanny Perspectives: Texts, Images, Experiences’

 

IDEA – Interdisciplinary Discourses, Education and Analysis launches a call for articles for its new issue ‘Uncanny Perspectives: Texts, Images, Experiences’.

 The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, to a dimension of fragmentation of experience, which questions, often in radical ways, our ordinary notions of identity and belonging.

No Guardrails: Teaching and Learning in Times of Trauma

Wednesday, February 15, 2023

This collection seeks essays willing to explore what it means to flounder and flop--to be afraid and uncomfortable--and to get back up to teach (one hopes) another day. For this is the precarious new normal of teaching and learning in post-pandemic America, where primary and secondary educators are fleeing the profession in droves--citing too much pressure, too little pleasure--and murmurs of “quiet quitting” across college campuses suggest that higher ed might not be far behind.

Political Animals- reclaiming the politics beyond humans ASLE conference

"Hence it is evident that the state is a creation of nature, and that man is by nature a political animal."  This statement of of Aristotle is often interpreted as nonhumans not being concerned with politics and that politics is a prerogative of humans only. Political associations in a human society are often restricted to humans. However, contemporary research in ethology suggests that nonhuman communities and their associations are highly political. Similarly, the sixth mass extinction and the climate crisis have compelled humans to acknowledge that non-humans have always been a part of their political discourse and actions.  We invite papers that discuss humans and non-humans in political discourses and narratives.

"Victorian Gothic and the Occult" Edited Collection

Saturday, December 31, 2022

The Victorian era, and the Nineteenth Century more broadly, witnessed a flourishing of interest in the supernatural, spiritualism, magic, and the physical and psychological sciences, which culminated in the emergence of occult beliefs, practices and societies. During this period also, the Gothic literature and art that had taken hold of the public imagination in the Romantic period continued to haunt the Victorian era, emerging in new forms that often embraced and experimented with ideas of occultism. Nineteenth-century occultism has received much critical attention, particularly in relation to its role in bringing about the apogee of British and American occultism in the early twentieth century.

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted many of the social support structures upon which we relied, demonstrating both the fragility and importance of being part of a larger group. Whether in moments of uncertainty and fear, or times of celebration and engagement, our communities serve an integral function in our personal and professional lives as educators, learners, and citizens. This year’s CEAO Spring Conference will explore the various ways we have responded to the need for a network of others and how we might continue the work of (re)building communities and promoting belonging in English Studies.  

FRAME 36.1 “Dying Wor(l)ds”

Wednesday, December 7, 2022

In “Land Sickness”, Nikolaj Schultz describes how he goes on vacation to “detach from the material consequences of [his] existence,” but upon arrival on a French island, he is once more faced with the material reality of existence, as the island’s coastline is eroding, caused by rising sea levels and the pressure of foreign tourism. He writes: “Neither Pareto, Marx or Bourdieu died in vain, but none of them offer a language sufficient to articulate the geo-social struggle for territory that unfolds on the island. I myself lack a language to understand what is happening.” How indeed, does one think and write about the world that is disappearing under our feet?

Afterlives of the Antisocial

For nearly two decades, the “antisocial thesis” has enthralled queer theoretical thought, permeating a variety of debates surrounding relationality, sexuality, gender, race, psychoanalysis, and temporality. Christened by Robert L. Caserio during an infamous 2005 MLA panel, the antisocial thesis, Caserio elaborates, described a “decade of explorations of queer unbelonging” positioned against an intensifying “gay rage for normalizing sociability.” As Robyn Wiegman warns, however, the antisocial thesis “is not ‘a’ thesis.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 1, 2023

Fandom today is often entangled with digital platforms, which offer spaces and features that make some aspects of fan culture more widely accessible amid increasingly globalized communities and models of consumption. Fans are perceived to be early adopters of new technologies, particularly those that provide space for gathering and community building. Likewise, many types of fan works, fan labor, and fandom participation depend on certain platforms for hosting, sharing, distributing, and discussing such content. However, fans also have complicated relationships with platforms, whether because their needs and uses are in conflict with other stakeholders or because platforms can generate and challenge notions of access, accountability, and community.

Sneaker Studies: A Call for Papers

Sneakers have constituted one of the most significant cultural phenomena in recent history, and yet they have not garnered sustained attention by scholars of humanities and cultural studies. This project, an online sneaker archive will consider how specific shoes have become icons of their historical eras. This is a second call for papers this time with a more focused question.  We are interested in studies of specific athletes as pitchmen and their changing relationship with signature shoes or shoe lines.

The goal of this seminar is to provide a forum in which to discuss how TV shows (reality shows, true crime shows, documentary broadcasts, docufictions, and web series) bridge the gap between factual knowledge and myths, and how it facilitates the transfer of ordinary knowledge into the implausible, especially in Iberia and Latin America. Entertainment business and journalism intertwine to engage an audience oriented to the consumption of serialized narratives.
