If ‘space’ is understood as an area that can be objectively measured or at least conceptualised, the construction of ‘place’ depends on a range of affective and cultural meanings at any given moment.

CFP: The Global South (Journal): “Toxic Ecologies of the Global South”—Deadline December 31st, 2023

Shouldn’t the World Bank be encouraging more migration of the dirty industries to the LDCs (less developed countries)? … I think the economic logic behind dumping a load of toxic waste in the lowest wage country is impeccable and we should face up to that… I’ve always thought that under-populated countries in Africa are vastly under-polluted. (Lawrence Summers, chief economic advisor to the IMF, 1991).

Cinephile 18.1 – (Un)recovering Lost Futures

The late cultural theorist Mark Fisher asks, “how long can a culture persist without the new?” For Fisher, the postmodern future under capitalist realism, “harbours only reiteration and re-permutation” (6-7). In capitalism’s inability to look beyond itself, media culture has become excessively nostalgic and “incapable of generating any authentic novelty” (63). Accordingly, one can observe a certain malaise surrounding media’s inability to imagine new and alternative futures.

Call for Creative Submission | Writing with the Bots | AI Literature Submission

Using neural networks, the AI literature tools produce human-like pieces of literature that are, in most cases, marked by twisted imitations of the masterpieces both in language and content. The ‘Artificial’ is repetitive and selected from the vast body of literature available on the web or from the classics, a particular language model is fed with. With this caveat, we venture into experimenting with writing with the Bots.

Rupkatha Journal is inviting submissions of AI literature following the instructions below:

deadline for submissions:

In 1938, a group of British expatriates led by Albert Stephen Gispert, known as G or "our father G," founded the Hash House Harriers (H3) in Kuala Lumpur.  Other than during WW II, the group has been in continuous existence for almost eighty years; the original Kuala Lumpur group, Mother Hash, still exists. The hash house harriers, "a drinking club with a running problem," is a unique blend of athleticism, sociability, and hedonism.  Hashing has a rich and diverse history spanning the globe, and this anthology seeks to capture its impact on global culture.

From North Carolina Out: Charles Olson, Black Mountain Poetics, and the Later Years

Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 26, 2024

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Chicago, May 23-26. This year, the Society is interested in abstracts that examine the later periods of Black Mountain Poetry. After the closure of Black Mountain College, the liquidation of the property in 1957, and the folding of the Black Mountain Review in the same year, poets like Olson, Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, John Wieners, Ed Dorn, and Larry Eigner had to find new centers of community where they could continue the advances of their experimental poetics. Gloucester, Buffalo, San Francisco, New York, Boston, and New Mexico – different locales became important for fostering exchange for these poets.

Jazz and American Poetics: From The New American Poetry to Contemporary Verse

Charles Olson Society; Amiri Baraka Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 26, 2024

The Charles Olson Society and the Amiri Baraka Society will co-sponsor a session at the annual American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Chicago, May 23-26. This year, our two societies are pleased to announce a collaboration around the theme of jazz and its relation to the development of experimental American poetry. As Charles Olson once stated in a series of talks titled “On Black Mountain”: “Boy, there was no poetics. It was Charlie Parker. Literally, it was Charlie Parker.” Olson was thinking back to his 1950s correspondence with Robert Creeley, who consistently wrote to Olson about the importance of Parker’s bop rhythms for his own poetics. In the talk, Olson equates the entirety of the New American Poetry with just Charlie Parker.
