[Call for Chapters] “Problematic” Punk: NOFX's Forty Years of Punk Provocations

Thursday, October 26, 2023 - 1:11pm

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 1, 2024

For forty years, NOFX’s brand of (depending who you ask) witty, offensive, humorous, juvenile, intelligent, existential, political, anti-PC, and/or philosophically probing punk has reared several generations in punk attitude and ethos, for better or worse (again, depending who you ask). The band got its start in the early-1980s Los Angeles punk scene, was among the pioneers of the melodic yet hardcore So-Cal punk style, rode the wave of 1990s punk popularity without signing to a major record label, took a political turn during the Bush era, and continued their punk provocations until retiring in 2023.

Transformative Works and Cultures
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 1, 2024

Due in part to well-publicised advancements in generative AI technologies such as GPT-4, there has been a recent explosion of interest in – and hype around – Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies. Whether this hype cycle continues to grow or fades away, AI is anticipated to have significant repercussions for fandom (Lamerichs 2018), and is already inspiring polarised reactions. Fan artists have been candid about using creative AI tools like Midjourney and DALL-E to generate fan art, while fanfiction writers have been using ChatGPT to generate stories and share them online (there are 470 works citing the use of these tools on AO3 and 20 on FanFiction.net at the time of writing).

We are looking for new chapters for our first year composition textbook Digitally Mediated Composing and You: A Beginners Guide to Understanding Rhetoric and Writing in an Interconnected World 

We are looking for writers to contribute four new chapters in Digitally Mediated Composing and You. Because these chapters are filling gaps in an existing text, the topic and direction of each chapter is predetermined, as is the format, but each chapter should be written in the unique voice of the author, and there is a lot of room for experimentation and play within the format!
