Chapter contributions are welcomed for an edited scholarly volume on the global impact of streaming services, crucially Netflix. The American company Netflix has, owing to its pioneering role, become synonymous with the world of streaming. The growing list of “Netflix Nations” (to invoke the title of Ramon Lobato’s 2019 book) means that there are only a few territories such as China, Iran, North Korea, and Syria that remain outside its purview. In recent years, a number of streaming giants have emerged in the Western world– mostly notably, Amazon and Disney+ –that compete tightly within international markets.

Troubling Universalisms: Politics and Aesthetics in Critical Theory Symposium
University of Amsterdam, Netherlands, June 9-10 2023
Fifteen years ago, the Social Church workshops initiated by Ian Forrest and Sethina Watson worked to introduce the study of the Church as an active agent in medieval society: in other words, putting people at the heart of the institutional church. Two decades later, we hope to bring a similarly fresh perspective to the study of medieval religion with The Medieval Church: From Margins to Centre, a two-day conference to be held on 26–27 June 2023 at the Humanities Research Centre, University of York, with the generous support of the Centre for Medieval Studies and the Department of History (York).

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.
Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature seeks submissions of Articles, Notes, and essays for our Archives, Innovations, and Academy sections. TSWL focuses on women’s literature in all time periods and places, including foreign-language literatures, and in every genre—poetry, prose, drama, essays, diaries, memoirs, journalism, and criticism. While submissions need not be exclusively concerned with female writers, the focus must be on women and writing, explicating the specific links between the woman writer and her work.

How do we understand our bodies? Our own bodies might be the first we experience as children, but how do we use this lived experience to understand the bodies of other people? The bodies of everyday folks we meet on the street, bodies that may range from healthy to diseased, able to disabled, sports fit to couch potato, real to represented, cared for to cared by, and everything you can think of in between—how do we think about people who are like us but also somehow different? What knowledges do such encounters between variAble bodies create?
Saint Louis University—Madrid April 21-22
Adaptation is a term that bridges the divide between literature and evolution. Texts are adapted to speak to new circumstances as time advances and younger writers, directors, actors, artists, and audiences seek connections to a mutable culture. Likewise, organisms adapt over generations to better suit their circumstance.
