Subaltern Writing and Popular Memory in the Early Modern World

Journal of Early Modern Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 20, 2022

Volume 13 of the Journal of Early Modern Studies seeks to interrogate how common men and women used different modes of writing to keep, shape, and contest social memory in the early modern world. Studies on popular senses of the past, such as Andy Wood’s, have brought to light the complex interrelation between custom, collective memory, and social struggle. A usable past was key in conflicts over economic and political resources in the present. As the systematic regulation of access to reading and writing (Guillory), literacy was the basis for persistent forms of exclusion — particularly when gender and racial regimes of inequality intersected with class. But literacy was also a site of contestation.

Eudora Welty Review
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

The 2023 Eudora Welty Review will feature a special section dedicated to Welty and Ecology. Eudora Welty’s stories attest to her acute attention to the natural world, an interest fed in part by her devotion to her garden. Always careful, as she puts it, to depict “the moon in the right part of the sky,” Welty portrayed nature as both setting and agent. The EWR seeks essays that examine the intersection of Welty’s work with ecology, ecocriticism, ecofeminism, and the ecogothic. Also of interest are essays exploring environmental concerns in Welty’s fiction, from the clear-cutting of farmland in the Delta to the logging in the hills of Mississippi.

Women’s Studies; An Interdisciplinary Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 1, 2022

We are seeking proposals for a special double issue of the journal Women’s Studies; An Interdisciplinary Journal on the work of Eudora Welty in the context of women's studies/feminism. Contending with a writer famous for declaring that she did not need to “crusade” and hesitant about the label “feminist,” scholars in the past have examined in helpful ways how Welty’s work undertakes the task of exploring gender. However, given new conversations in the fields of intertextuality, materialist studies, ecofeminism, and gender studies, further conversation or even a reappraisal is certainly due. Proposals/abstracts due September 1, 2022. Full paper submissions due March 1, 2023.

NeMLA 2023 Panel: Untelling Stories: Mad Techniques of Narrative Noncompliance

Wednesday, June 29, 2022 - 8:58am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2022

 

This accepted creative panel invites abstracts for the upcoming NeMLA 2023 conference at the University at Buffalo in Niagara Falls, NY from March 23-26, 2023. 

 

As Mad writers, we are called to confess: in the form of scholarship based on disclosing “lived experience,” activism which centers individual stories of trauma and healing, or sanitized “mental health” narratives which point only toward a legible life. Amidst the ever-growing demand for “mental health awareness” and concomitant psychiatrization of everyday life, Mad writers face increasing pressure to plate recovery-oriented stories for sane consumers. In the face of this pressure, I ask, where do we go? What do we write? And how do we know?

In Laudato Si', Pope Francis declared, "a great cultural, spiritual and educational challenge stands before us [...] Education in environmental responsibility can encourage ways of acting which directly and significantly affect the world around us [...] living our vocation to be protectors of God's handiwork" (2015: 202-217). Seven years later, educators continue to face this challenge of integrating faith and spirituality into teaching about the ecological crisis we face in the twenty-first century. How can we empower our young people to take action and become the ecological citizens of the future?

With Disney’s initial apathetic response to the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill which recently passed in the state of Florida, it is time to shed light on Disney’s complex relationship with the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Recently, there have been works which briefly discuss the relationship of queerness and Disney, such as Sean Griffin’s Tinker Bells and Evil Queens (2000), Melanie S. Kohnen Queer Representation, Visibility, and Race (2016), Jennifer Sandlin and Julie Garlen’s edited collection Disney, Culture, and Curriculum (2016), and Joseph Brennan’s edited collection Queerbaiting and Fandom (2019). However, the queer artist/contributor has yet to be the main topic of discussion.

Afterlives of the Antisocial

Tuesday, January 31, 2023

For nearly two decades, the “antisocial thesis” has enthralled queer theoretical thought, permeating a variety of debates surrounding relationality, sexuality, gender, race, psychoanalysis, and temporality. Christened by Robert L. Caserio during an infamous 2005 MLA panel, the antisocial thesis, Caserio elaborates, described a “decade of explorations of queer unbelonging” positioned against an intensifying “gay rage for normalizing sociability.” As Robyn Wiegman warns, however, the antisocial thesis “is not ‘a’ thesis.
