Crossing Boundaries: Rethinking the Humanities across Disciplines

Continually being transformed, the humanities have expanded into a discursive field of trends, movements, and methodologies that have appropriated the thoughts, ideas, and viewpoints from social and other sciences by transgressing and crossing traditional boundaries, limitations, and demarcations. The humanities which traditionally include the study of disciplines such as language, literature, arts, history, culture, and philosophy rarely prove to be “disciplined” as each one often tends to encroach upon prescribed and reserved territories of other disciplines not traditionally humanities labeled.

Exploring the Outer and Meta Spaces of Resilience

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 23, 2023

This panel focuses on the political, cultural, and societal narratives of outer space. We suggest that the narratives and discourses that surround space exploration, threats from space, or even future colonization of space can provide insights into the logics and counter-logics of resilience as they inform how we ought to and who ought to live with environmental destruction, information capitalism, neoliberalism, and the remaining infrastructures of colonialism.

ProudFlesh: New Afrikan Journal of Culture, Politics and Consciousness is seeking contributions for a special issue entitled “Black Motion: Looking Our Way Back to Black.” This issue will examine how contemporary black people of both Africa and the African diaspora reinvent and reimagine their identities in terms that celebrate or draw attention to the body. These ways of imagining, representing the body and its various parts have historically played important roles in the lives of both Africans and peoples of African descent. Yet scholars have often neglected to study such representations and their significance in the day-to-day existence, lifestyles, hobbies, performances, and imaginations of blacks living in both the United States and abroad.

Victorian literature in adaptation is a mix of “high” and “low” culture: filmmakers like Kenneth Branagh or Francis Ford Coppola might adapt the canonical literature of Mary Shelley or Bram Stoker into prestige films, while the same stories are remixed in comic books and parodied in TikToks.

Horror Homeroom's Special Issue #7: Found Footage Horror

In today’s media landscape, questions of authenticity, truth, and manipulation of fact are more pertinent than ever. While journalists herald the dawning of a ‘post-truth’ era, and deepfakes bring to a boiling point the anxiety of online communication and documentation, the subgenre of found footage horror seems to encapsulate a terror that is both commonplace and elusive.

Reproductive Justice in Popular Culture

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, December 20, 2022

The Reproductive Justice  area will focus on reproductive justice issues as they appear in popular culture (film, television, social media,  music, literature, etc.). Reproductive justice is a term that goes beyond the term reproductive rights, something that typically focuses on contraception and abortion.   According to the SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, “it’s ‘the human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have in safe and sustainable communities”  (Abrams).

True Crime typically focuses on investigative journalism used to present a mystery or attempt to understand the psychology of a crime/perpetrator. It may include narratives of a case, victimology, forensics, or analysis of evidence, although each case is different. Much of True Crime focuses on serial killers/killings, although subsets of the genre may delve into topics such as kidnappings, cults, wrongful convictions, advocacy, white-collar crimes, trial proceedings,
prevention of crime, survivor stories, or sensationalism/entertainment.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, October 31, 2022

The goal of this seminar is to provide a forum in which to discuss how TV shows (reality shows, true crime, documentary broadcasts, docufictions, and web series) bridge the gap between factual knowledge and myths, and how they facilitate the transfer of ordinary knowledge into the implausible, especially in Iberia and Latin America. Entertainment business and journalism intertwine to engage an audience oriented to the consumption of serialized narratives.

Writing Catastrophe/Centering Realism: Textualizing Capitalism’s Disasters

updated: 
Tuesday, September 20, 2022 - 9:23pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

In the current moment, there is no paucity of catastrophe writing. From apocalyptic speculative fiction, cli-fi, and other textual forms of disaster writing, catastrophe is too often conceived of as environmental events or disasters that already have occurred (tsunami; forest fires; hurricanes and floods) or will reliably occur in the future. Part of the problem with this textualization is that catastrophe often is seen as an event rather than a process. More pointedly, our critical attention has been (understandably) trained on the effects and harms of climate change rather than on capitalism’s disastrous drive for surplus extraction that renders life unlivable for millions in the here and now.
