Extended deadline (February 19): Edited volume: “Trans Identities in the French media” - Call for abstracts

Dr Romain Chareyron
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 19, 2021

As a preamble to this call for abstracts, we want to specify that we are using the terms “transgender” and “trans identities” as umbrella terms for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Our use of “transgender” or “trans identities” thus encompasses a variety of experiences within and outside the gender binary, and a range of expressions, as trans individuals pursue many different options (medical changes, clothing, make-up, etc.) to bring their appearances into alignment with their gender identity, or may choose not to.

In The Temple (1633), George Herbert observes that “broken bones may joy,/ And tune together in a well-set song.” Here, Herbert observes the interplay between ailments that affect both the spiritual and physical senses. Senses - understood to be those faculties that acquire knowledge vis-à-vis experience - serve as a shared vocabulary informing both spiritual (i.e., transcendent, religious) and physical (i.e., materialistic, naturalistic) means of treatment. But even in our own day, such connections among theories of sense, spiritual and physical illnesses, and their treatments reconfigure what we mean by “healing” in medical discourses.

Podcasting constitutes a new form of digital media which cannot be reduced to the phenomenon of which some would describe as the “Radio Renaissance” on the Internet. Moreover, podcasts have crossed over from a cultural niche to mainstream, as evidenced not only by a vast number of titles available on countless platforms and applications, but also by the increasing number of listeners and transmedia influences of podcasts in the form of TV series and literary adaptations (such as Lore, Welcome to Night Vale, Limetown and others).

DELVING INTO URBAN MYTHS: THE WORKS OF CHARLES DE LINT

With over seventy titles to his name and new ones in the making, Charles de Lint is among the most prolific writers of Canadian speculative fiction and a key representative of urban fantasy/mythic fiction. Given his vast literary output, several awards (including the World Fantasy Award in 2000 and the Aurora Award in 2013 and again in 2015), and a large gathering of devoted readers (if Facebook profiles such as “The Mythic Café, with Charles de Lint & Company” are any indication), it is more than surprising that his fiction has yet to become the subject of a full-length academic study. That is not to say, of course, that the academia is unaware of de Lint’s presence.
