In recent years, numerous instances of anti-Black violence have brought to light a long, complex history of institutional racism and violence in the United States. At the same time, these events have inspired collective action and consciousness across the globe, prompting communities to recognize their own histories of racism, racial inequality, and discrimination as well as their manifestations in contemporary society. In the Latin American context, the effects of conquest and colonization have played an especially significant role in the shaping of social and cultural histories, and identity representations.

 

University of Toronto Graduate English Conference: Intimacies/Intimations

updated:

University of Toronto Graduate English Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 15, 2021

In the introduction to the Winter 1998 edition of Critical Inquiry, Lauren Berlant suggests that “the inwardness of the intimate is met by a corresponding publicness.” Over two decades later, Berlant’s pronouncement remains pertinent, particularly as the transition of our work and social lives to online spaces complicates the relationship between the private and the public. Stripped of actual bodily closeness and intimacy, the virtual body, along with its intimations and those of its domestic space, has been thrown into relief.

Avian Aesthetics: Birds and Humans in the Literary and Popular Imagination

Danette DiMarco and Tim Ruppert / Slippery Rock University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 1, 2021

Jennifer Ackerman’s national bestseller The Genius of Birds (2016) highlights how birds and humans, while on seemingly different evolutionary paths, have coincided in interesting ways as both have risen to meet the challenges of nature (The Genius of Birds 12). Birds have consistently been alluded to in literature, dating back to the Greeks, and the proposed edited collection Avian Aesthetics seeks to deepen the awareness of the importance of birds in the literary and popular imagination while simultaneously focusing on how the human vision of birds has altered in an age of Animal Studies, species-ism, and climate change.

A Handbook of Indian Indie Cinema

Each year, a large number of Indian Indie films are released that suffer from lack of viewership even when it comes to their target audience, not to mention critical assessments: films that are regional, experimental in nature or have fresh, timely interventions. Many among these deserve recognition, not only from general audiences and moviegoers but also from film scholars and the academia. With the onset of streaming sites and OTT platforms, some of these have made it to the limelight, although a systematic handbook that discusses many of these films is currently, absent.

To the surprise of analyst expectations, at the end of 2019 Netflix recorded a record-high growth in subscribers and revenue outside of the United States, specifically in its Asia-Pacific region. The growth in this region is attributed to the establishment of regional offices and the commissioning of local productions, the success of which travels even further afield in the wealth of pan-Asian content making its way into Netflix’s global catalogue.

We find ourselves at an exciting moment as scholars of contemporary Irish writing – Irish literature is, as the Irish Times points out, ‘having a moment’.

As some commentators have noted, both established and emerging female writers are disproportionately represented in the thriving contemporary Irish literary scene. Canonical figures like Anne Enright and Edna O’Brien continue to publish new work. The last two winners of the Sunday Times Audible Short Story Award – Danielle McLaughlin and Niamh Campbell – are Irish women, both of them relatively new to writing. In 2018, Anna Burns became the first woman from Northern Ireland to win the Man Booker Prize.
