deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Abstract

ontemporary literary, computer game, and cinematic history are rife with forms of interactive fiction and storytelling. Gamebooks such as the Bantam Choose Your Own Adventure series of children’s books, video games from early text-based games like Zork to more contemporary gaming, and interactive movies of the type becoming increasingly common through streaming technologies, allow for a different kind of relationship between audiences and narratives.

These types of narratives have been read, watched, and played by adults and children alike with increased regularity since the popularization of the form in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

“Modern?” CFP

 

Saint Louis University—Madrid, June 7-8, 2024

 

The OED defines “modern” as “being in existence at this time; current, present,” but also as something that is “opposed to the remote past.” Given that the concepts of “past,” “present” and “future” are not fixed, but, to paraphrase Einstein, illusory, the meaning of “modern” itself is hard to pin down.

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Anaïs Nin is a 20th-century diarist and writer who endlessly inspires other authors while generating interest, enthusiasm, and debate among many literary critics and readers.

Cambridge University Press (CUP) has shown interest in the future edited volume Anaïs Nin in Context. This collection aims to delve even further into the exploration of Anaïs Nin as a woman and a writer, her cosmopolitanism, and her influence. In addition, as part of CUP In Context book series, the future Anaïs Nin in Context must have around 30-35 book chapters arranged in different sections and explore contextual aspects of Nin’s life and literary production, instead of the close reading and examination of her literary production.

Thus formless is not only an adjective having a given meaning, but a term that serves to bring things down in the world, generally requiring that each thing have its form. What it designates has no rights in any sense and gets itself squashed everywhere, like a spider or an earthworm. 

— Georges Bataille, Informe (“Formless”), 1929

Money on the Left: History, Theory, Practice

updated: 
Saturday, April 20, 2024 - 2:38pm
Money on the Left
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, April 30, 2025

We are pleased to invite contributions to Money on the Left: History, Theory, Practice. Money on the Left publishes peer-reviewed articles about monetary arrangements, knowledges, and cultures with the aim of promoting ecosocial justice. This open-access journal understands money creation as a situated political problem that constitutes societies. It moves away from claims that money is a scarce instrument of barter, an inherent (if necessary) evil, or the infamous commodity-form and toward actualizing money’s unrealized potentials to shape collective life in emancipatory ways.

Gloria Naylor’s 1996: A Teaching Companion (Edited Collection)

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

Gloria Naylor’s fictionalized memoir 1996 (2005) remains the least studied but most controversial selection in her decades-long literary output. Published by Third World Press at the tailend of her illustrious career, 1996 stands in stark contrast to Naylor’s iconic tetralogy — which includes Women of Brewster Place (1982), Linden Hills (1985), Mama Day (1988), and Bailey’s Cafe (1992), as well as the sibling text Men of Brewster Place (1998) — by centering the author herself in its bold critiques of state power and the ways marginalized communities fight to uphold it.
